A Letter For Friends and Family End of The Year 2011
What an amazing 2011 year friends and family. First of all, I like to thank every single one of you for just being you and thinking about us. You’re amazing and in our hearts. We are wishing you the very best that God has to offer. Most importantly we are grateful for having you in our life.
So where do I begin? As you know I was born May 9th, 2011 at Palomar Hospital in Escondido, CA. The first of my 2 brothers to be born at Palomar. This is also where both of my parents were born. Being in the amniotic fluid for so long, I was able to hear and study my soon to be family. I come to find out that I have the best qualities of both my brothers and I balance them out. Lets start with Cesar Antonio. He’s creative and always inventing stuff. He’s also very emotional, so be very careful of his feelings. No joke, he has a new idea every minute. Now my other brother Adam David is something else. He’s also very creative and likes to build things with Legos. He also loves to dance like nobody is watching and is a comedian. He’s more of a hands on type of guy and I see him bringing new Lego creations to my dad. He can also be in my face at times and a bit rough on me (just wait until I grow up). I have this cool jumper where I just jump away and smile at the world so they can see my chunky legs go to work.
I’ve had the pleasure of hanging out with Dad most of the mornings and afternoons since he chooses to work from home. I’m not quite sure what he does on the computer, but he’s also very creative and constantly shooting videos and writing blogs. I think I heard him mention that it’s called online marketing. He chose to close down his computer service repair company after 5 years of service because of his focus to create an online business so he can spend more time with us and generate income no matter where we live. I can hear him late at night cranking on the keys and I know he’s up to something big. I love my dad and want to be just like him when I grow up. He continues to DJ as a get away for relaxation and last I heard he’s been doing it for 16 strong years. That’s probably where I get my dancing moves from. You should see him pick me up and dance, I just smile away. He tried retiring 3 times from DJing this year, but his clients tend to find him to continue. Dad is not allergic to money so he can’t refuse.
Now, my beautiful mom is amazing! She also works very hard at making sure we are all taken care of. Not only does she care for us when she gets home from her teaching job, but she also has to put up with 30 other children at school. They gave her another 10 kids to add to her already busy schedule. Dad is working on adjusting our lifestyle to accommodate mom to be home with us full-time.
Mom and Dad put on some weight from my doing . So they got on the 90 Day Body By Vi Challenge and in their 1st 30 days lost over 20lbs each. I’m so proud of them! Completely inspired by Cesar’s brother Juan who went from 260lbs to 190lbs. A lesson to note is, if you don’t have your health in alignment, nothing else fits. Mom and Dad’s next 90 Day Challenge is to run a 5K. Make sure to cheer them on!
Finally, we are in the process of living a simpler life without the collection of extra stuff. Dad has been selling off a lot of stuff on eBay to make clearing for our new life together. He’s learning to let go of holding on to everything. I’m proud of him for this change. As I type this, we are in the process of moving to Valley Center, CA to be closer to family. The city life is too convenient for dad and mom and being out in the country will allow Dad to clear his thoughts and live in peace from the city noise. He’s enjoying the art of blogging more and has plans for new innovations are in the works. Stay tuned to his blog at CesarRamirez.com.
That is all for now my friends and family. You deserve to come visit me. I just want to leave you with a smile and a quote I just invented. “Don’t let the material things of life get in the way of your happiness. The most important element that life has to offer is your time. If you’re not in control of it, somebody else is. Live life to the fullest.”
