The Big Day

We’ve had a busy couple days in the Hernandez household guys! With all the traveling and getting a lot together we finally had Jackson’s baptism. I’m super happy and excited. I swear my baby boy got baptized and now he’s as happy as can be. He was a happy baby before, don’t get me wrong, but now it’s like he’s beyond happy. He’s been a pretty good trooper. He had his big day  and met more family, he wasn’t very fussy, didn’t even nap most of the day. He’s the perfect baby. His baptism was amazing. So many family members showed up and got to see him get baptized and came to the reception after to hold, cuddle, and see him some more. The big day went perfect and smooth and I couldn’t be happier with how everything turned out.

On to the next

So yesterday was the day we flew from my family to my husbands, bittersweet. I’m super excited to be with his side of the family. Plus I have come to love California. I miss my home but this is my home as well. Most people when they get married say your side of the family and my side but my husband and I don’t. Everything is our family. So even though I miss being where I grew up, I love being where my husband grew up as well. Life is a funny thing. When I was growing up I never thought about moving out of Illinois but now here I am with family that’s in California and I couldn’t be happier here and there. Family is family whether you were born, married, or adopted into it, that’s family. So here we are on to the next family of our many 🙂

Unconditional love 

Children make you realize how much you can truly love another human being. When you let someone else take care of your baby, seeing them walk away with your tiny human kinda makes you sad. Yes all parents deserve breaks here and there but once you get that break it’s like you don’t know what to do because everything you do revolves around that child. I love being around my baby. My husband and I were going out to dinner and my mom came to grab him and as she was walking away I missed him already. We still had some of his toys lying there and looking at them was just kinda sad. I love being able to hear his laugh even his cry, because I know he’s near me and I can pick him up, cuddle and hug him when I want. My baby boy is my life. Even when we need breaks I still want to know he’s still there with in arms reach. I love when he gets excited and just pulls me toward him and smiles. The love between a parent and their child is unconditional and amazing.

Traveling Trooper

So I give my baby boy props guys. We’ve been through two day light savings time changes and we traveled to a time zone with a seven hour time difference and we’re not even done yet. Through all this time change and traveling though he’s been such a good boy. He still goes to bed around 10 and wakes up for the day around 4-5 with a few midnight snacks in there. I’m blessed with such an amazing child that I have nothing but love for. He’s the best baby and I couldn’t have asked God for a better first child. I love my baby boy and he’s been a trooper during our traveling times.

Family First

Hey guys! Sorry it’s been a bit since I’ve posted something. My family and I were traveling back to the states. It’s been a year and a half since we’ve been home and nobody in our family has met the little one. Let me tell you though I missed home so much. My brothers finally got to meet my son and the youngest loves him so much. My youngest brother is like me when I was around him when he was first born. He wants to love him and hold him all day long. Being home after a year and a half makes you appreciate your time with your family more than if you were there everyday. You know most people today are so hung up on technology, wanting what everyone else wants and wondering what everyone else is doing, they lose sight of what really matters; family. Family is going to be that one thing that’s always going to be there, no matter how annoying they may be, no matter how bad their decisions may be, they will always be there. While on vacation I will continue to post but there may be longer periods in between than usual. Love your family, take time for them and yourself and make sure you make every minute count. img_3737
