OUR LITTLE DUAL CITIZEN!!

I dont know who read my blog post awhile back about us processing Lukes DUAL CITIZENSHIP and how God worked so many things out + how we were waiting to get the call if he got approved.

Last Saturday I got a call from the Embassy in Manila. I was scared to hear what they were going to say. My heart was beating so fast. The lady on the phone asked if I had remembered them requesting additional proof of having a total amount of 5 years in the US from the age of 14 up.

See that was one of the requirements that I had at least 5 years presence. I was nervous because both my mom and I went over the different times I hd been there and to be honest it didn’t come close. But we just kept praying and asking God to show favour.

I told her yes I had remembered and the extra documents were on their way. The lady then mentioned that “Oh Ma’am I just wanted to inform you..we will no longer be needing those documents. You had the 5 years needed.” Then she was kind of silent. The next thing she said was “You’re son has been approved. His passports and documents will be sent you within the next week or more.” 😭😭😭

It was truly all God. I am 100% convinced God put those extra dates in my passport!!!

These two little passport books will always be a reminder of how GOD answers prayer💙😍

THANKKK you to everyone who prayed!!

3 MORE DAYS

Sunday Luke and I went with Ryan to hear him preach at a church. It was like an hour away but thankfully Luke slept the whole way!! As soo. As we got there some boys were playing basketball he went right over and started “trying” to talk to all of them. They all were so cute cause they shared their ball with Luke. This kid loves basketballs!Ryan and I woke up yesterday and realized that we only had 4 days left before he turns one so we decided we wanted to make sure we made these last 4 days really special!! I can’t believe my baby boy turns ONE. He’s walking everywhere!! Which is nice cause he’s so heavy and my little body can’t carry him too long anymore! I’m so sad yet so excited at the same time!!! I love watching this kid grow!! Plus i finally figured out a theme for his birthday!!🙌🏻 Yesterday we got up early and went down near the market to get decorations for his birthday-cause they’re way cheaper down there than the mall. He has no idea whats coming😀 he loved the party shop though!!

Then we took him to the mall to see Jollibee cause I mean it doesn’t get more special than that for him ha!🙈 he loves JOLLIBEE so much. Everyone says he’s definitely filipino cause he walks right past Ronald McDonald and straight to Jollibee. It was so cute cause he was in his stroller and whenever we would walk by people he’d wave and smile like he knew them💙

This year has been the BEST!!

I shopped for MYSELF

I went to the thrift store the other day and for the first time in a longggg time-I shopped for MYSELF😎 I have a boutique so usually when I go I’m focused on getting stuff for the boutique. So it was so fun to shop for myself. I found this dress for $1-and a whole bunch of other stuff😱 It’s super comfy! I love the dress buttt im thinking i might want to repair it a little. I don’t know…we’ll see. 

I LOVE MY CRAZY, BRAVE, LITTLE BOY

When I found out I was pregnant I began to wonder so many things. Like “WHO IS HE GOING TO BE LIKE?”  In our relationship I’m the outgoing one. I like to be crazy, meet new people, smile at everyone and talk, talk, talk. Ryan is super friendly but he’s alot more normal than me:) I often get told “you are crazy, Abie!” I am starting to think that side of me was definitely passed down to Luke. He is seriously so outgoing.
