He came quickly. Just like I knew he would.
After four hours of labor he arrived, it felt like a dream.
7 lbs. 8 oz.
Family joined us to celebrate his arrival at 4:32 am on Friday morning.
He peered at me through his plastic bassinet. I knew him, he knew me, my voice, my presence.
I knew that he’d be dark featured. His sister light.
I knew that he’d be sweet and love music. Like his Yaya.
I knew that he’d be “just like him.”
I just didn’t know my parents would bring a friend… Poor things… They were sick for days!
Many have said that Elijah takes after me… well, baby pictures reveal that he sure does look an awful lot like his Nana!
The Perusquias came bearing gifts on Saturday! Jordi bought him his very first soccer ball!
It was apparent from the beginning that he sucked his fist in-utero.
He is wrapped up in a loving extended family of doting aunts, uncles, yayas, nanas, grandpas!
Welcome to the world Elijah James! You are dearly loved!
