The Many Faces of Diego Alexander Santoyo

Where does the time go.  I remember like it was yesterday when Diego, my 1st, was born.  It was a long and hard 36 stressful hours in labor with him, but at the end it was all worth it.  He was born 4/27/2007 at 7:27pm…Talk about a seventh heaven baby…He smiled from the moment he came into our world and continues to smile everyday after.  Today my Diego turns 3!  He, as usual, woke up with a smile on his face, and when I said to him, “happy birthday Diego,” he said, “thank you Mommy.”

For those who know me and my story, then you know how God used Diego to save my life in many different ways.  I was going in so many different and wrong directions before I learned I was pregnant with him.  He is my pride and joy!  My lifesaver!  He brought color to my then gray and dreary world.  He allowed me to see life in a different perspective and not take ANYTHING for granted.  I love him so much, and I thank God everyday for him!

I cannot imagine my world without my boys.  Our lives were short and colorless before they came into our lives.  Now they teach Jesse and I how to love unconditionally, how to laugh or smile even when it hurts, and most of all how to live life extraordinarily.  They are my riot of color in my dreary gray world!

Happy Birthday Diego!

Love Always

Your Mommy

My Beautiful Family

I told Diego to share his toys and I believe he took it too literally…..

This was Diegos’ 1st trip to downtown Chicago riding the subway and enjoying his 1st cup of hot chocolate.  It was a cold day….

What can I say he is gorgeous like his momma…

Jess and I were bored…the things we do to entertain ourselves…
