The Suit

This is the suit that my dad wore when he was little that has been passed down to every Buck boy to wear. All of the boys throughout the years have had their picture taken in this suit. Needless to say, it doesn't really get worn anywhere because it is 60+ years old and my child would be the one to hurt it.

It was so fun to have my mom come up and try to take the traditional picture of Alec. Made me so proud to finally have a boy that could share in this fun tradition. Of course I gave the suit right back for my mom to take care of and ship off to the next cousin in line. Love my Alec!

Happy Halloween!

All I can say is I tried to take pictures of the boys for Halloween. :) Alec was Pooh Bear and Keaton was a Honey Bee. They both looked darling. Alec just couldn't understand why we rang doorbells and didn't go into their houses. After a rousing trip around the block for candy, Alec fell asleep just as we came around the corner to our house. Happy Halloween from the Cefalos!

The Shizzle

Oh yes is it about time that I updated our family blog. I am horrible at it. I envy people who take the time and effort to keep it updated.

Here is what has been happening around the Cefalo home:

Keaton Buck Cefalo was born on 1-11-11. He weighed 7 lbs. exactly and was 20 inches long. He is the sweetest baby. We just can't get enough of this little dude and are so grateful for his spirit in our home. He changes everyday in fact these pictures are a little outdated!

The night we got home from the hospital we received a call from the stake executive secretary about meeting with the 1st councelor of the stake presidency the next morning. Tony was called to be the 2nd councelor in the bishopric in our ward. He is very excited to be able to serve in this position. We had to keep the secret for a whole week, I am proud to say I didn't tell anyone except who we were counciled to tell. The new bishop is absolutely wonderful and the 1st councilor is our good friend.

On Wednesday, Alec had his tonsils and adenoids taken out. He also had tubes put in his ears. He has been doing well as expected. It was quite rough today but hope he will be on the mend soon. He also had some allergery testing done and we found out he is quite allergic to dogs and eggs. Not sure what that means but we'll find out more when we meet with the doctor in two weeks.

It's been a busy couple of weeks. I won't lie we are tired and a bit worn out but feel extremely blessed. We have such wonderful family and friends that have done so much for us. We know we are doing what is right and are in the place we should be.

Our Little Miracle

On Friday, June 4, I went in for my first ultrasound. As we started the ultrasound my doctor could see I was pregnant but we could not see any baby. I held my breath as this was not the first time this had happened. My first pregnancy had been the same, my body thought I was pregnant but there was not a baby forming. With a heavy heart, I accepted the fate and we talked about how to proceed. My doctor of course wanted to check blood levels to see if they were going up like they should be.

That weekend Tony and I fasted and prayed that we would know how to proceed and that my body would be able to take care of what needed to happen. We also fasted for our doctor that she would be inspired in her care. We felt such peace and love and knew everything would be alright. As we waited for a phone call the following Tuesday, the doctor talked with me about my blood levels that they weren't conclusive in showing I would miscarry. I talked with her about concerns of being out of town and miscarrying. We decided to schedule a D&C so that my body would be able to heal quickly.

I got another phone call that day from the nurse telling me that the doctor really would like to do another ultrasound. I protested since we knew what was happening and I just didn't have the heart to see nothing there. The doctor insisted and so I went in trusting her judgement. As I lay there watching the screen, sure enough there was our little miracle baby, heart beating away. The doctor said, I knew that baby was in there.

I am so grateful to an inspired doctor and a loving Heavenly Father that knew this little baby was supposed to come to our home. I am due on January 17, 2 days after my birthday. We are so excited!

MS Bike Ride

Tony had the opportunity to ride the MS Bike Ride this year in support of our sister in law Ashley. Ashley was diagnosed with MS shortly after she had her son Logan. This was Tony's second 100 mile bike ride this year and he did fantastic! We were so proud of him and his accomplishment. Thank you to everyone that supported him in this race and Ashley!
