Lots of Changes...

It has been so long since I posted anything. the last posts were back in September I think..well alot has happened since then.
At the begining of October I started to feel nauseated, and I thought oh my gosh I can't be pregnant...well I decided to take apregnancy test and let's just say that I almost quit breathing...yes it said PREGNANT!!! I seriously couldnt believe it. I mean Shawnda was only 4 months old. It was a little mind boggling to me because HEctor had only been home for 5 days and I was on the pill. Well we went through a roller coster of a week because they thought that I had miscarried and we had even had an ultrasound where they couldnt find a heartbeat, but I was still feeling nauseas and pregnant, so they did another one and they found the heart beat. My doctor was really surprised and so was I. It was finally determined that I was 6 weeks along and my due date is June 6th, which is only 4 days after Shawnda's Bday..Yes they will be exactly a year apart..maybe even a little less. So crazy.. Well I have since had two ultrasounds and I am now passed my 12 week mark. Everything looks good so far. I am now getting excited..I am still a little dazed and I know it is going to be hard with two babies, but I also know that this baby is meant to come. That is the only way to describe it. And so we will gladly welcome him or her into our Hector said, "We take blessing when we can get them".
A couple of weeks after all of that craziness we found out some other big news...we got orders to Clovis, NM. Yes I said NEW MEXICO!!! We are so excited. We will be about 4 hours from my family and about 8 from Texas. Hector has to be there by the 28th of February, but I think we will leave about the 1st. There is som much to do, with either selling the house, or renting. Lots of packing to do, and we are trying to figure out the best way to get all of our stuff down there. Its going to be nutts, but I cant wait.
My family has really been through alot lately and in October we were faced with another death in the family. On October 26th my aunt Tondra's little 4 year old son Matthew was killed. He had went down to the fields with his 12 yeard old brother Quinton to get the horses in for my Grandpa. Him and my dad and brother were going to go and get some cattle in. Anyway they had taken some grain down with them and the horses started fighting over it, and little Matt was just in the wrong place and was kicked by a horse. She had actually been kicking at another horse and he was kicked in the back of the head. My aunt an grandpa were at the house and she saw QUinton running up carrying little Matt and they immediately called 911. When they got there they sent for a helicopter and meant them at the Dairy Queen in Bluewater where they flew him to ALbuquerque. HE died there at the hospital. It was such a shock and I knew that I had to be there. SO I flew out two days later. It was one of the saddest funerals I have ever been too, and it was just heart breaking to see my aunt. I stayed in New MExico for 2 weeks. I was able to spend alot of time with my aunt and also my family. It was bittersweet. Shawnda got to spend alot of time with her Grandpa, and aunts and uncles and cousins. It is defintiley things like this that make you hug your kids a little closer and appreciate life.

I'm so excited for you and Hector to be moving closer to family & for having a baby on the way!! (and a little jealous too)...

Reading about Matt makes me get teary. I can not imagine the pain your Aunt must be feeling. And yes, it does make me appreciate my little guy even more.

I hope this next year is full of happiness and much less hardship. Again, congrats on your second child.
