Three Years Ago Today ...

Today marks an exciting day in our family ... a very special day that happened three years ago: Christian was conceived.

"Ummm, too much information ..." you might be saying. It's really not if you realize we tried to get pregnant for nearly a year before discovering we had infertility issues.

Through the assistance of modern medicine, we were able to conceive our precious little boy three years ago today.

I think some find infertility to be a taboo subject. It is, after all, one of the most personal journeys a couple can take. Our story ended happily (and actually, our story continues on with the precious two year old we love more and more each day).

We get asked a lot if we plan on having another child ... and the answer is, "Yes we do!" Having infertility issues mean we are in control of timing the pregnancy (which can be a good thing!). So, we need to get a few "ducks in a row" before we work on our second child. So all I can commit to now is "soon." :)

I mean really ... just look at this face! Don't you think he needs a little brother or sister to play with?

We are officially home owners!

Yes, yes ... I know. We closed on the house in October and moved in in December. But it seems that owning a home isn't the "real deal" until it comes time to buy a lawn mower and mow the lawn.

Pretty impressive that we didn't have to mow the lawn for four months. It was green and beautiful, just growing slowing in the cooler temps (yes, we do get "cooler temps." When the highs in the heat of the summer are 110+ and the average high temps in February are in the 60s ... that is "cooler temps.").

Congratulations to Jonathan on his fun new toy! :)

Happy Valentine's Day!

The Lucero Family celebrated Valentine's Day at "Christian's 5-Star Restaurant."

Jonathan was the chef while Christian played (which is what he does best!).

I tell ya, you can feed me steak and lobster any time ... delicious! :)
