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!

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).
