I think this is a lesson ive had to learn over and over since becoming a mother. To be honest I didn’t think it would be an area i’d have trouble in.
We finally got Luke a car seat last week. We are trying to get him used to one for whenever we go to the States.
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!!
I feel like it has been forever since I’ve sat down and actually blogged. I’ve missed it! I’ve gotten side-tracked a little with things so i’ve lost focus with my space here. So I thought i’d sit down and write today:) Life has been really great! I feel so lucky to be where I am right now. I love being a wife and mom. I remember thinking years ago how I cant wait to be married and have a kid and how slow time felt like it was going and now it just wont slow down. I feel like tomorrow I’m gunna wake up and Lukes going to be a teenager!
My baby boy is ONE! It feels so unreal. I honestly couldn’t even write about it till now because I have a few words but really i’m just in awe of how fast time went by.
Luke is 1 month away from being A YEAR OLD!!! What?!! How?
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.
Ryan and I were talking the other day how we’d be content if Luke was the only child God ever decided to give us. It’s true!!! I mean obviously if we have other kids..it’ll be different in a good way!:) i had a dream the other night that we were having another kid and I woke up crying cause I kept thinking “Nooo! I still have so much I want to do just us 3!”haha
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.
Hey! So, I recently had my old blog deactivated. 😦 So sad, but happy at the same time. Sad because I lost alot of writing that I had done. Happy though because I had in a way wanted to start over with my blog. I didn’t like the way it was going + there was so much I had installed and applied for that I really had NO idea what was going on.
