Time flies.....

A post from Hector...

I can't believe it has been almost a year since Joaquin was born. It feels like he has always been a part of our family, I can't even remember what I was like a year ago.

What were my thoughts and what were my hopes?

Mateo will be 4 in a couple of days and Diego will turn 6 in April. Time flies but one thing is for certain, Joaquin's first 11 months feel like a lifetime in all respects.

We cried a bit but we laughed even more. We ran around different places and so many appointments but we sat and gazed at him in astonishment even more. We had countless sleepless nights but with him by our side it felt like such a blessing, listening to him breath knowing that he has nothing to worry about. He will be loved and cared for. Then, in the morning when he wakes up between Jen and I, he smiles, and you know what real love is.


  1. What an angel. Thank you for your blog. We were given your blog thru a family member when our son was a couple of weeks old. Your family has inspired us! We feel so many of the exact emotions. We feel very connected.
