Gauchos! Hello again from your teacher Mrs. Valenzuela. I hope this blog finds you well. I will quickly update you with what I have been up to. It's quite a short list. I have been: feeding baby, changing baby, burping baby, bathing baby, stopping-a-crying baby. MY WORLD REVOLVES AROUND MIKAELA. Not much time to be Mrs. Valenzuela. I only exist as "MOM" right now. Luckily, my husband is taking time off (called "baby bonding") to be with us and help this busy momma. Who knew something so tiny could be so needy? But she's worth. I mean... LOOK AT THAT SMILE. (See third picture below.)
Mikaela is as healthy as can be. She can burp like a grown man. She has started to smile like a little ball of sunshine. She can sleep (almost) all throughout the night. And she is a Giants fan. (I'm praying they make the playoffs via wild card!) As for me, my health has been better. It's hard work recovering from a baby, and some unforeseen issues have occurred. On another note, Hernan and I celebrated our one year anniversary this Monday (September 26), and our little celebration was great. I hope one day we can reach our 50th, 75th year anniversary. It doesn't hurt to dream!
Last blog, I mentioned I would be attending an ECHS football game. Well, I went to my first two El Capitan football games these past two Fridays. Since my health is "meh" and Mikaela is still teeny, we left after halftime both games. But they were a blast! I had never been to any sort of high school football game in Merced. They were certainly different than little ol' Le Grand High School or Delhi High School football games. I deeply enjoyed the band playing throughout the game. To any of you on the band, great job! And of course, I loved that varsity beat Golden Valley on homecoming. I even saw one of you there, as one of you said hello to me. (To whoever you are, you will have to tell me your name on my first day at school!)
Okay, Gauchos. I'm off to put my baby Mikaela for a nap. Maybe Mrs. Valenzuela can fit in some Zzz's also.
