The Love of a Great Grandmother

When we first moved back to Miami two years ago, we lived with my grandmother, Bibi. I was pregnant with Isabel at the time, and I remember my grandmother being so excited that she would soon have a great-granddaughter. From the time Isabel (who Liam nicknamed “Nene”) was born, my sweet abuelita was a constant in her life. They would spend time together every day while I stole a nap or played with Liam for a little while. At one point, she was the only one who could get her to fall asleep, by patiently rocking her and singing a lullaby.


Magical Moments with Macks and His Sisters

One of my favorite things about the stage that Macks is in now is how much fun he is having with his sisters. He could sit and watch them all day if I let him. They love to do things to make him laugh, and he loves the entertainment. It’s always so magical watching my kids’ relationship grow. Knowing how much they love one another is enough to make my heart swell.

I love capturing special moments with Macks and his sisters so that I can cherish these moments forever.

Enjoying the Magic of Dance

We don’t care if it’s hip-hop, rhythm and blues, pop, rock, or gospel — when we hear a good beat in my home (or outside the home), we start to dance. And do you know who often kicks things off with a steady head bob? It’s our littlest family member, Jada. At 22 months, this little girl can move, and dancing has become one of her favorite things to do.

Why Haircuts Are a Big Topic of Conversation in Our House

Our son was born with a serious head of hair. Flock of Seagulls type hair. So much so, nurses at the hospital were stopping by our room just to see the baby with “all the hair.”

Needless to say, haircuts are quite the topic of discussion in our house.

My Water Babies

When Liam was 10 months old, we were living in Denver, CO but we knew we would soon be moving to Miami to a home with a pool in the backyard. My mom mentioned that I should put him in swim class to get him prepared for the water. Apparently most swim schools will start water safety/swim classes for babies at 6 months! Who knew?
