April's Adventures in Mamihood: Meet my baby girl!

Hi mamitas, it's April Hernandez Castillo and I'm so proud and blessed and happy to announce to you the birth of my beautiful baby girl! Both she and I are healthy and happy and relaxing, recovering from the labor.

So, for the info: She was born on September 30, 2012 at 1:15PM, weighing in at 7 lbs., 5 oz. and 19 inches long and her name is...


Summer Rose Castillo. We love this name and I hope you do too! We'd already been thinking of names before we even got pregnant, so there wasn't a lot of back and forth when it came to deciding what to call her. 

Honestly, I couldn't wait to meet her! After my due date came and went, I was getting a little bit anxious about when she would decide to come into the world, and finally my doctor's decided to induce me last Friday. The labor was pretty rough, but in the end it was so worth it! I mean, I got the most previous gift of all...

Obviously, this wasn't a one woman show, so I wanted to share what my hubby, Jose, had to say with you guys too:

I am speechless and madly in love with baby Summer and now understand a love that's like no other. We promise to raise her well and in the presence of God's love. I love my wife now more than ever for having invested her health and body to bring this beautiful baby into this world. Baby Summer, welcome to this place...we will show you everything. Mom and Dad...

Hahaha! Clearly we are excited and thrilled to share this photo of our beautiful bundle of joy with you. As you can see, I wasn't playing around when I said I wanted her to have a flower in her hair!

I just want to thank all of you who have been following me in this journey. It's been such a wonderful experience and I'll be back as soon as I can to let you know how the first few weeks of motherhood have been. I just need to come back down to earth and bond with my little princess first.
