Happy Birthday Card For My Mommy

Recently, my mom celebrated a birthday so I decided I would make her a different kind of card. I like to try out new things. I can't remember what this card is called since I made it last month, but it's like a hidden box card filled with all types of goodies for my mom to celebrate her birthday. I took it with my son's tablet and the thing does not take good pictures but I have nothing else at the moment since hubby takes the iPhone and my camera's rechargeable batteries are dead.

Our Wedding Day... Finally!

Here comes the Bride... all dressed in White...

We are officially married in the eyes of God :) Wow! Thank God it's over!! Wow! I can't stop saying that enough times! Man! Weddings in Ecuador are less stressful than here in the U.S. (I still remember my brother's wedding to Gladys). But man, we were running all over the place those last few days. Everyone arrived on time. My brothers, my sister-in-law and my niece, Little Miss Vicki, aka my Flower Girl.

This is the morning of the wedding. We had breakfast at the venue, La Casa Real Hotel & Spa. It was a gorgeous venue and our Matrimonial Suite was huge and gorge.

Me and my hubby eating and my daddy is looking down at Baby Henry in his stroller. My sister-in-law Glady took these candid pix.

Mmmmmm, I was maybe a little nervous, but I think I would've been more nervous if we hadn't already done the civil thing.

The back of my wedding dress. That on my left shoulder blade is a hive. Henry and his family have 3 dogs (Hank included) and I'm allergic to dogs. Unfortunately, I get hives all over!

Me in my gorgeous dress

These are the souvenirs I showed you last year. My sister-in-law, Anabel, and her cousin came over and helped me assemble them before the ceremony! We were so late for everything!

And that's me hot gluing the letter basket. I literally glued the bow and ran out the door!

Henry and I at the church. I got there about 5 minutes late to the priest's chagrin, but we still got married!!

And this is the day after. We slept at La Casa Real and had breakfast with my family the following day.

Baby Henry's Baptism

On Sunday we celebrated Baby Henry's Baptism. I'm trying to type this quickly because tomorrow we leave for Ecuador, all of us! This is Baby Henry's first international trip. Mommy and Daddy are getting married!! In a church this time. Everything is all set. Well, it's been all set since last year when we were supposed to get married in September, but then we moved the date to June of this year so that my whole family could attend the wedding. Then, I got preggers.... soooooo we moved it to September of this year when baby Henry would be five months. But I'm getting ahead of myself. The wedding is next month and my whole family will be there which makes me happy. Only my niece and nephews from my older brother will not be able to make it.

Back to the Baptism. This is the cake we had designed via a Pinterest pin I saw. Again, this cake was made by Luigi's Bakery.

Baby Henry with Mommy and Daddy, after the ceremony and a change of clothes. It was hot that day!

The Baptism invite. It was from a Wedding kit I bought at Michael's. I didn't have time to make the invites or to order them. The ceremony was really last minute!

These are the souvenirs I made.

He's Arrived!

Our baby is finally... here!!

Our maternity photo shoot, waiting for baby to come.

Henry Alejandro, Jr. was born on April 14th (two days late!) at 3:08pm. He weighed 6 lbs and 14 ounces and is 20 1/2 inches in length. It was a natural birth (no Cesarean!).

We love him so much! I can't believe how beautiful he is! Everyone said he was going to be a big, 8-pound baby. They were wrong! He was a wittle itty bitty thing! I started crying when I saw him come out. He's healthy which is what I wanted! My little munchkin!

And here's a little instagram shot I posted. Hahaha. This is him! He's always smiling!

Two Baby Showers and We're Finally Home!

So in February my mother-in-law Laura held a baby shower for me in Ecuador. It was sort of a farewell I guess since Henry's embassy appointment was later on that month and then we finally picked up his Visa on February 28th. We booked our flight back to the U.S. (a first for him!) a few days later and now we are back home, yay!!!!! We were really holding our breaths! He is a bonafide U.S. Resident now.

So here's a picture of my baby shower in Ecuador. The video in back is of a music video, in case anyone thought otherwise. That is my darling husband. He has the best smile ever! I love him so much!

And here we are back in the U.S. First thing we did? Shop for a crib for baby Henry!

I loved the white one in back, but it's so expensive!

On March 22nd, we held our U.S. baby shower with all my U.S. family.
This is the cake I had made from Luigi's Bakery.

And next to the cake are the souvenirs I made. Since the theme of the party was flying, I decided to make little suitcases as favors. I stayed up til about 5am the day of the shower to finish making these!

These are the invites I had made by Vistaprint. They are boarding tickets. This invite set up the whole theme for the party. We were coming home.

Here's a closeup of the suitcases. I made the little labels as well.

I was in a hurry so inside I only had time for some small sacks of candy.

Closeup of the labels.

The suitcases were all different types of designs. I found a template for them online. I searched everywhere. It was not easy I must admit.
