Do you remember that we said we wanted to wait 1 month to celebrate our birthdays(until I was over my sickness)? Well, last week I bought an amazing chocolate mouse cake to celebrate our b-days this weekend. It just happens that we had 3 extra reasons to celebrate, so we put in 3 b-day candles for the 3 new babes that will be joining our family in the next several months (that was a better option than 65 combined candles).

Saturday we celebrated Jacklyn's 4th b-day. We all woke up early and met my mom and their 3 cousins at the zoo for a snow and watersplash day around 7 am. The kids played in the snow and then played on water slides. They were giving out free promotional stuff and there was a fire truck etc. We all rode the train around the zoo and it was getting too hot around 10:00 am (that's Arizona for you), but Jackie really wanted to see Kashi, the little orangutan, so we sprayed off with some more water and went to see the Orangutans. Jacklyn kept telling us that her party was sooo fun. The best part is that it was completely free with my mom's super duper zoo pass.
We went to my mom's house and made baby pizzas (the kids made their own with 1/2 an english muffin, sauce cheese, etc). They were so good, fun and easy for the kids to make.

Look at those chubby little legs. I thought she was too cute lounging on my bed with her legs crossed, pretending to talk on the phone.
Joanna is just so sweet and silly these days and she talks a lot. She was really the sweetest, most caring kid during my sickness. Every time she could hear me sick in the bathroom she would come and say, "Mommy, you sick? You need medicine?" She would often leave and come running back with Gatorade or water for me. The other kids are used to it and just ignore me, but Joanna was truly concerned and didn't know what to do.
Well, since my roots were bad and I have lived in a pony tail the last 2 -3 months, I decided I needed some help. Now that I am functioning again, I found this reasonable place out by our new house. Well, I feel a little bit better about my hair, but now I need to get rid of all of this acne (gotta love these hormones) and finish up the sickness. This is weird but I think the worst of it is over. I had 4 brutal weeks and now the sickness is only sporadic - this is so unusual for me. Could this mean it is a boy??? I am not sure we will find out. We never found out the gender of any of our kids until the last baby. Javier said it ruined the excitement of the actual birth for him, but I liked being able to plan and prepare.
