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!

 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 :)
