And now we are 3


SHE'S HERE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Our baby girl arrived Monday, August 20th at 3:30pm. Her name is Sochi (rhymes with mochi, mochi ball) Jacinta. She was 7lbs 1 oz.

In Nahuatl (the language of the Aztecs) Xochitl, means flower. We chose to spell her name Sochi because it uses a combination of the letters of our names: Sophia + Nacho. I think we named her even before we were pregnant.

Her middle name Jacinta was my maternal grandpa's name, Jacinto. It means hyacinth in Spanish. Another floral name. He was very special to me.

I'm in love all over again. With life, with her, with my boyfriend. He is the best partner anyone could have ever asked for to raise a family with. And she looks like him! Same eyes. Dora says she has my "wig" and nose. And both of us have big cheeks. I can't believe it was her who was in my stomach this entire time. I told one of the nurses when I was in labor, "I've been pregnant since Christmas." 

I don't know if you guys want to know all about her birth story so I will leave the post like this. I just wanted to make her debut and let everyone know we are doing well.

As a result of my absence, I have extended the ending date of my give-away until August 30th. So go enter, all you have to do is leave a comment on my previous post. It's free stuff! I will be hosting another one in September, Aveeno baby product edition.

Much love from California,
Sophia, Nacho, and baby Sochi

  4. Okay...beautiful family...but seriously...have you looked in the mirror? You don't look like you just had a baby at all. I always thought you were pretty, but motherhood made you just GLOW.

    Thank you for your comments :) I feel guilty because you beat me to it. DOn't think I've forgotten about your email, either.

    It's really funny because I remember when you told me that you wanted a girl so you could give her all of your cool clothes. Life always has a way of working out.

    And I laughed when you said "color me pendeja." LMFAO!! Honestly, I just thought my name meant lily. Azucenas are pretty (or so my dad tells me) and they're pink or white, tiny, and very fragrant. My dad used to pick them when he was a little boy and take them to church for la Virgen de Guadalupe. He liked them so much he named his favorite milk cow Azucena (he lived on a farm in Mex). So I guess you could say I was named after a cow! LOL!

    I'll email you back in a few minutes :D
