Tears of Change

On the flight back home from Tampa, FL
My loves... I started residency today and I missed you both so much. You both have brightened my life SO much. Alma- I missed your warm, beautiful, easy smile. Emilio- I missed our dance parties, laughs and cuddles.
I start this time away from you with such sadness. I loved having so much time devoted to nothing more than being your mom.

As I start this new chapter in my--our--lives, I will be there, I mean I promise to really be here, when I am home. I will do my best to leave work at work.


Alma- today, when I got home. You discovered your little hands, and laughed. Opened them, closed them and laughed. I love that. I love you.

Emilio- today you wanted me and Da-dune to kiss your cheeks and it made you and us smile. You make me proud to be your mama.

Waaaaaay too long...

Alma Rose Montoya Houghton

It has been WAAAAAAYYY too long since I posted and life has flown by, I cannot believe it has been over a year since my last post!
In this last year, I finished my last required set of required rotations and will graduate in May with my M.D., insane, exciting and totally frightening! Kris is now working at the Court of Appeals in Albuquerque and continues to run like crazy.
But most importantly, we welcomed our little angel into this world: Alma Rose Montoya Houghton. She was born December 4, 2011 at 5:34 am after 1 hour and 34 minutes of labor! When it was time, she knew she wanted to enter this world quickly!
Emilio has been such a loving and caring big brother. Anytime she cries, he quickly notifies us that "sister sad" and tries to console her.
Things have slowed down for me as far as school goes and I spend my days discovering Alma, feeding her, changing her, loving her, watching her sleep. She is beautiful and my life has been truly blessed to be her mama.
