To my Linguine, my Tiny Love, my J.J., my son
Who would rather eat a hot wing than ice-cream
Screams so loud, he turns red like a tomato
My Linguine, who I give the funniest nicknames to
My Tiny Love, who is learning to talk, goes around asking,“Uh?” “Uh?”
My J.J., scared of the dark and loud unexpected noises
Lover of macaroni, apple juice and grandma
Lover of the movie Nemo and mama
Thanks to you I can breathe again
Thanks to you I am alive
My Son, Jonethan Jeremiah

Who eats baby snacks and love bananas
Who laughs at you when you make funny faces and when you play ball with him
Cries for his mommy and daddy when they leave
Isaiah of the curly and blonde hair
Who is learning how to walk
Scared of the vacuum when on
Lover of the vacuum when off
Lover of sweets and cookies
Thanks to you, you made my life better
Thanks to you we became a family
Mommy and Daddy love Isaiah!

For Adriana who,
Is very energetic like the energizer bunny,
Who eats everything but her meat! And loves to torment her sister.
Who laughs at pain and papa when she’s done something wrong.
Says, “your silly” and “Mommy, Gaby won’t leave me alone”
Adriana of the bronze skin and poufy hair.
