Hi. I am Lydia, happy owner of Eerie Silence. Here's a little about me.

I absolutely love God, life, music, food and the camera, but really the people that are involved in my life. This is my personal photo journal in which I want you to feel. With entries that are heart felt. The ones that draw more than just my memory back at a moment. My goal is to create an environment where this is possible.

For me there is something fulfilling about taking photographs and falling completely in love with it and the memories it creates. With that being said, photography is crazy important to me, and if for you too, then we're totally going to be a great fit!

I know I haven't properly introduced the newest member of our little family, as I did with our eldest but this little cutie has made me feel a lot more reserved about her arrival. I can't explain it but I guess with each pregnancy comes different feelings and when I tell you Skyler made me reserved I truly mean it. Unlike with my first pregnancy, I didn't take belly photos, or have posted a lot of Skyler yet. I could feel a bit down by it but it was a feeling that couldn't be fought. This is my once in a blue moon post by the way. I guess I can say a bit about this pregnancy and my light, Skyler...

Skyler was born on February 3rd, 2017 at 2:33am.  This pregnancy was nothing like my first. I'll be completely honest about it. First, I got the worst morning sickness ever! And it wasn't only morning. I would feel sick for most of the day. I hated to cook. I mean all from breakfast, dinner, snacks? EVERYTHING! I would feel like throwing my insides out. It lasted a few months. Secondly, I had so many freaking cravings that lasted the whole nine months! Third, my belly grew immensely! It was crazy to look at it and believe it was a real thing. Oh and lastly about being pregnant at least, I felt unmotivated often due to the exhaustion! I was dead all the time. During labor again, my partner was a big 13 lbs when he was born, (yeah his mom says he almost killed her!) making me have huge babies, so... Skyler was a big 9 lbs and 8oz! When she was born the doctors and nurses couldn't believe how big of a baby a petite woman had! After she was born I kept hearing about it. "You had such a huge baby! But you're so petite!" Anyway, baby Skye and I were both healthy and I had a super healthy pregnancy just like my first one :) That's something I am always proud of. No complications.

Today my big baby girl is 2 months already and it was tough because she would cry a lot at first but now she sleeps better and so does everyone! She was smiling from just days of being born! Like actually smiling at us wide awake. She would, and still does, speaks back when you talk to her. She doesn't do it alone, she baby talks right back to you when she sees you are trying to communicate with her. She has this cute little word she overuses when she baby talks that sounds exactly like she's saying 'rice' in Spanish so that's like "her thing". Raiden absolutely loves her little sister and she's so overprotective of her. Comforting her when she cries, and saying "hi!" to her first thing in the morning when she comes over upon waking up. I guess I worried so much for nothing. They will be amazing sisters I know it. I will make sure to teach them that. My partner is so in love with them and of course so am I. What else can I say? If I felt complete before I feel even better now. I am so thankful with God for allowing me, for gifting me this privilege of being a mom once again and for protecting me all the way through any and all complications. Without Him we are nothing.

Here are some photos I took of my Skye today in celebration of two awesome months! I still have archived some of when she was first home from the hospital. I am not sure if I'll ever post those, also not sure when my next update will be so enjoy! xx

 Raiden's Christmas Gift 2016
Hi guys, here's to hoping you all had a magical Christmas next to those who truly matter the most. I for sure did aside of mine even though this second pregnancy in its last month is taking all of me. On Christmas eve my little growing family enjoyed a day out. We had breakfast at ihop and it was delicious. Something I always love is that Raiden being so well behaved she always eats all her food. Never has been one to play with it. Afterwards we went out to get her and her baby sibling some clothes since we saw some of our favorite babies/kids stores right near by. They both got some cute and much needed items.With a few more doings we called it a day.

The next day being Christmas we all woke up, and after having Raiden life is just so much happier so we are all in that happy mood no matter what day it is. It helped to have my partner home for so many days. He makes the best breakfast and coffee :) Naturally we had delicious breakfast, watch Raiden's shows and anime. Also as a routine we teach Raiden vowel letters, in Spanish that we have handwritten on cards with different marker colors. We also teach her to count in English and Spanish and she is doing really good. Not only saying it because she's mine but because we put so much time and dedication into her every day learning experiences and they pay off! She's known for months now where and what are her eyes, nose, ears mouth and as a bonus, we are her teeth and tongue. Speaking of she loves to brush her teeth every day looking forward to it back since she only had 4 cute little ones. I wanted to write these things of because I am so proud of our little household and we are so much more than what we decide to share. I want to read back on this and remember all we do and did for our growing girl. We will definitely put the same effort into teaching out littlest one the same and everything we have learned from mistakes.

Oh, also Raiden loves books, and pretends to read them after learning from mommy and daddy as we read them to her. That is something major to me because while I didn't grow up reading or owning actual books growing up, and received my Kinder Paperwhite from my mom years ago, I discovered that amazing magic that's behind reading books after books although digital only. But hey, it's about to be 2017 and that's how things flow nowadays. I love the fact that I can carry over 30 books into one little device and switch between them where I please. Although right now she loves physical copies of books, since she was only a few months old. whatever she decides in the future I will support her most of all motivating her to continue on reading and expanding that amazing mind of hers!

Ever since learning her vowel letters, at only one year old she can point some of them out of receipts and pieces of paper, repeating them constantly. At such an early age, she can say so many words already that we have taught her and many others that she has learned on her own. My favorite thing now is when we are laying down face to face and her cute little fingers point to my eyes and she says "oju, oh ju" implying "eyes" in Spanish, then moves to pointing to my nose and saying "aris, aris" as in "nariz" in Spanish which means nose.

She's an extraordinary toddler and we have definitely not missed the opportunity of teaching her while her absorbing brain is in such an early stage. Which brings me to my next point, for Christmas it was decided to get her a kids tablet, aside from a very cute and girly playing tent. A lot of parents and people that have no absolute idea what is like to be a parent like to point fingers at tablet buyers. I honestly don't care if I am being indirectly or directly criticized because as stated above my daughter has two very responsible and attentive parents right by her side teaching her things from the moment she was born. Now I do not agree people shoving their judgmental believes down others throats. Raiden used to use my iPad when she was very little for the sole purpose of having her very few favorite shows on the go anywhere she wanted. She has a very distinct taste and doesn't truly watch cartoons but rather chooses to watch learning shows with human beings. What a blessing huh? She has learned so much with those shows and I approve of it. My tablet is now super old and it was decided by my partner and I that she could have her own and such age just so she can expand her mind watching even more shows. We got her a tablet that can offer her that and so much more as she grows. She will always have mommy and daddy's learning time and she will always have her books, and alternative learning ways because we strongly believe in teaching her.

For now, she'll only use that tablet to watch her very few favorite shows, she has never been one to watch for many hours. She get tired of whatever she's watching easily moving on to physical activities or simply being calm around mom and dad. But once she's older she will have a freewill to use her devices as desired and knowing her she will know that it will always be there allowing her to put it down whenever and picking it back up when needed.

I don't know what I do to deserve such a bright and mature kid, she's still has her little baby things of course, but I am honestly beyond words proud of my baby girl. She's done and does so much right and although there will always be challenging moments, she has in fact made motherhood easier on me.

Side note; I was never attacked by anyone judgemental personally but there was a need for me to write this. Remember there's always more than what you see on the surface. 2017 is just a few days away and we must move on and get with the times. If you aren't a parent yet, do not judge or criticize those who are and know their kid and their personality. And if you prefer things an certain old fashion way then good for you. Have a good one and thanks for reading :)

I don't blog regularly but that's something you already know. My little family and I have been enjoying our days so much that I have been away from most social sites. Truth is we are doing great and that's the most important thing. I rarely photograph anymore and  today after coming home from a flea market Raiden went to take a super long nap, after she woke up I took these photos because she always looks so cute after her naps. She's always cute though.

Thanks to the friends I've made online who have worried about me and my family. We are doing just fine and I will be returning to Instagram soon. I wish you all a very good one :)

I am and I've been rather busy trying to put together Raiden's 1st birthday which is today but she will have a party for it on Saturday. Today I will be baking her smash cake in the hopes to get some cute photos and sing to her later on tonight.

Anyway but I wanted to have some me time in between all of this! So I took some photos yesterday of this lovely mail package I received from a lovely girl named Eva whom I had the pleasure to meet on Instagram. I first came across her Instagram back when Animal Crossing Happy Home Designer released. Her photo was top on the tags. I quickly fell in love with her profile. She quickly followed we exchanged a few praising over each other's Instagram profiles. Some time later added each other on Miitomo and honestly she's the only person of my friend's who still uses it and keeps things so interesting. Thanks to Miitomo I got to see her personality and know some details about her. That's always good.

This is funny so I will ad more to the story. On Miitomo I've learned a couple of things thanks to Eva. Like how whenever you get the hiccups one should try to lay flat and tilt your head a little bit upwards like you would in a CPR situation, and just breathe thoroughly. Also about how much better organic milk tastes and eventually I found a bit of curiosty in tea which is how we got to this package she sent me. I told her I've never had tea and that I had no idea what good tea should taste like. She assured me she would be mailing me some if I wanted. Of course, things like this make me extremely shy but I think it is rude to say no to someone offer. A few days later I received this amazing package from her expecting only tea. So when I opened the first thing that I saw was this cute little Yotsuba box.

Call me naive or whatever seems appropriate but I was expecting some tea bags in the box. Like in the Yotsuba box.. Don't laugh but I did. I was like aw what a cute box she chose to put it in! I was thinking there would be some tea bags in there aha! I even showed my partner the box unaware of five little Yotsuba dolls being in there awaiting me. So as I opened it my eyes went big. I saw a couple of Yotsuba dollies in their original wrapping and more kept coming out and I quickly turned back to my partner and said, "omg look she sent me the whole Yotsuba set omg!" He was like "wow she is amazing! That's just so awesome of her, seriously". I was and still am so happy! This isn't something I could've bought myself because trying to get these would be difficult, but also my only option would've been Ebay and they are way overpriced. I could cry guys!

There's a total of five extremely adorable Yotsuba's I can only imagine all the adventures one could create with these cuties! Just shooting these simple, not so original, photos I had a blast! With my new camera I now can see how much smooth and creamy my photos come out.

She also sent in this thing I can't name it for you but basically it gives your hard boiled eggs shape. I think this would be perfect for Raiden once she gets bigger and can eat a whole egg. It is freaking cute! I didn't take close ups of it. Sorry. I shall try to make a post later and review it maybe. And last but not least, the reason why I received the package in the first place, the tea. At the moment I am recovering from a sore throat and I my tongue has lost taste so I haven't tried it yet. I can't wait! I trust her with her choice so I know it HAS to be so good!

A very special thanks to Eva for doing such an incredible thing for me. I suck at mailing things and even attempting to make packages but I will be thinking on a way to return the favor in the hopes to make her at least half as happy as she's made me. Thanks for reading! I am off to bake a layered bake for my daughter now!

P.S. I am still finding a way to edit photos. Now that I own a laptop the colors are slightly different here so they look different than my older way to process photographs. I hope they're still likable.
