More visitors






Hello everyone. We had a great day yesterday. Monica and Becky's cousins Ann (Aunt Rosie's daughter) and Ann, Alfred, and their son Ariel Perez came to visit us. I was so excited to have a couple of men in the apartment...and they wanted to watch sports. The Perez's are in town for Ariel's high school baseball showcase. I am going to watch him pitch this afternoon.


Aunt Rosie's daughter, Ann, came down from Wickenburg, AZ just to visit. She brought us a lot of baby items for our little miracles. She got here around 2:30 and hung out with us until 8:30. The Perez family got here around 4:00 and stayed until the end of the Red Sox/Indians baseball game. After catching up on everyone's lives for the past 15 years, Alfred and Ann bought us all pizza. Monica tried to say that we could go out to eat somewhere, but Becky had already warned everyone that she might try to pull something like that. I was pumped that I had a fellow pepperoni and jalapeno pizza lover among us, and Ariel and I threw down the entire thing. Hopefully, he won't have any acid reflux today on the mound.


We received a very nice card from Moni's Aunt Ginny a couple days ago. She ended it with a great joke that made all of us laugh out loud! We've been showing it to all our guests. We also received a package from Fritz, MaryAnn, and Lauren Graf. There were two platters of cookies (one of which is already gone), and some MAC cosmetics for Moni. It is one of the highlights of each of our days to get the mail, and we get pumped for fun stuff - so thank you to all who have sent things.


Monica's contraction monitoring machine wasn't working last night, so they are supposed to be sending a new one some time today. As Ariel would say, "That's so retarded!" She stayed up really late on the phone talking to the Matria people trying to fix it, but they couldn't figure it out. She finally got to sleep around 4:30 am. Hopefully, she will get some decent sleep today and tonight. We will continue to keep you all updated. Love you all. Enjoy the pics!


Billy and Monica
P.S. Andy, Stubby, Serg, Rachel and Ryno.....That last "sauced" post of yours caused Moni some stress. You all know what they say about babies born under stress!!! Just kidding. We really enjoyed reading it. Keep 'em coming. Ryno, you're disgusting. And Rachel, about Andy's heavy breathing...you'll know where all of Em and Andy's mouth-breathing kids come from without a doubt. Those poor hypothetical kids don't have a snowball's chance. Emmy, hope your flight back to Germany was good and uneventful. Can't wait to see you on Nov 2nd (maybe mom will still be in town).

Hello, my beautiful, wonderful sister (and brother-in-law)! I finally got on and checked everything out. Sorry it has taken so long--you know my intentions are always there, my actions, however, are not quite as prompt. Anyway, it was great talking to you tonite and--just as every other time that I have talked to you since you've been away--you sound great (not to mention how cute you look)! Now that I have finally commented and my conscience is clear, I will try to do a better job of keeping in touch on a regular basis. Either way just know that all six of you are in our daily thoughts and prayers. I am so proud of you guys--keep up the good work!
Much love--Mollie

As if there were ever any doubts as to where Emmy and my mouth breathing kids were going to come from!!!

Moni, you look great, and Billy...well, you are a hell of a man for putting on that "sympathy weight"...as a matter of fact, it looks as though I may be feeling quite a bit of sympathy for Moni as well!!!

You know I'm always thinking and praying for you guys. Can't wait until those four car seats I walk by every day are filled with four little bustling, healthy babies!

Love you guys!

Andy

P.S. Budda, watch it with those 27-year-old jokes. We can't all look as good as you do!

Hi Billy and Moni!!!
I feel like it has been forever since i have posted!! I'm sorry I haven't been on quite as frequently this past week, but don't you worry! I will try and do better!! Is your cat fixed? We have had an ongoing debate about this, so it would be nice to know the answer if you could...Your neighborhood has some crazy noises at night that kind of scare me, but it's no big deal. I still haven't fully unpacked, but I'm sure that doesn't surprise you. Don't worry though, Andy is helping me on Wednesday because it is starting to bother him, haha! But I have to be up early for school in the morning, so I'm done talking for now. I love all six of you!!!

I'm back on the spot because Marla won't get off my back about not having a new post from you! So, to keep her happy, please just say you are feeling great, Moni; that Billy is loving his job, and Becky is a wonderful guardian over you both!
Just kidding...I want another message too!
Love you all!!
Mama Budda
PS..Was that Rachel that wanted to know about the cat?

13,319! WOW! How blessed you are to have so many caring friends and family members checking on you and your babies ....maybe more than once a day. Are the babies going to be Billy's belated birthday present? What a wonderful gift.
Praying for all of you.

Thanks for the great time on Saturday. Ariel kept saying, "That was really fun!" Like he was surprised hanging out with relatives couldn't be a blast.
See I told you I needed to put lipstick on before the picture. We had a safe trip home, arrived about 9:30 NM time.
Mark your calendar for Dec 15 for Jessica's graduation party.
Keep up the good work of caring for those babies, Monica; and Billy and Becky taking care of Monica.
Love to you all temporary-phoenicians,
Anne Perez
