Father and Son

Early in the morning, Andres setup this shot for me to take of him.

My husband is a wonderful father and a terrific husband. The kids and I are truly blessed to have such a man in our lives. I am looking forward to my son learning from his father on how to be a good man.

Andres Antonio Castaneda Jr

Today we welcomed our newest addition to our family. Andres Antonio Castaneda Jr was born into our world at 8:39 pm on October 20th. He was 6lbs 10oz and 18.5 inches long. It was a tough journey for me to bring him into this world but with Andres help we made it through. The girls have been so welcoming of him and have loved him right from the start.

Lennon is staying at Tita's house while my Mom is in transition from houses. The girls love Lennon but I don't think Lennon loves the girls. He hides under Tita's bed the moment they come into the house. I think he knows when they come over he gets too much love from them.

Baby Shower

The girls threw us a baby shower today to welcome their new baby brother. We celebrated at Shadow Oak Park in West Covina with family and friends. We had a great time playing games, eating and hanging out. One game my Mom thought of was called "Who will baby Look like". She printed out pictures of Andres and I and cut them up into sections. People then had to piece together the pieces and create an image of what the baby will look like. Everyone had a blast playing this game. It was alot of fun. A big thank you to Lupe who cooked the food and of course our beautiful girls for planning a great party.
