Inspired by Father’s Day

Saturday, 18 June 2016 20:08 by Victor

It’s my first official father’s day and I’d like to express my gratitude to those in my familia who have taught me about fatherhood: First, I want to acknowledge my Mom, who played both roles of mother and father, and she did it with style (go Mama!). I’m who I am because of her. I learned courage from my mother. Next, I am also so grateful for my sister Yennie and brother Alex – they taught me responsibility, patience, and kindness. The third major influence is my grandfather, who was the patriarch of the Núñez Avilés clan. He was the hardest working man of his day, who was able to successfully woo my grandmother, Rosa Gertrudis and form a family, whose generations’ best days continue to unfold. Lastly, I want to dedicate this tribute to my dear wife, Heather, my soul-mate who makes me feel limitless, and my son, Lucas Julio, whose miraculous birth has made me a father! Happy Father’s Day!

Inspirado en el día de padre

Es mi primer día del padre oficialmente y me gustaría expresar gratitud a mis familiares que me han enseñado que es ser padre. Primeramente deseo reconocer a mi mama, quien desempeñó el papel de madre y también padre, ¡y lo hizo con estilo! Soy como soy por ella. Aprendí valor de mi madre. También, estoy agradecido por mis hermanos, Yennie y Alex. Ellos me enseñaron responsabilidad, paciencia, y amabilidad. La tercer mayor influencia es mi abuelito, Faustino, quien fué el patriarca de la familia Núñez Avilés. Fué el hombre más trabajador de su día, quien conquistó el corazón de mi abuelita Rosa Gertrudis. Ellos dos formaron una familia, la cual sus días mejores continúan. Últimamente, deseo dedicar este homenaje a mi esposa, Heather, quien me hace sentir ilimitado, y mi hijo Lucas Julio, cuyo nacimiento milagroso ha causado que yo sea padre. ¡Feliz Día del Padre!

¡Welcome - Bienvenido: Lucas Julio!

Sunday, 5 June 2016 18:17 by victor

It gives us great pleasure to announce that our son, Lucas Julio Fidel-Floyd, has arrived, as of 1:17 AM today! He was early by 5 days. He is very healthy, has 10 toes and fingers, and how about that black hair (see attached)! The nurses and doctors at Lenox Hill Hospital have been very helpful and professional. We owe them a debt of gratitude. They say Lucas Julio was the heavy-weight king today, at 8 pounds, 5 ounces with a steady length of 21.85 inches.

He was a bit of a cryer at the beginning, but the nurses tell us it’s quite normal, for he was in a happy womb for 8.75 months, making Heather quite bumpy!

Heather began leaking fluid in the evening yesterday but wasn’t experiencing much pain till late night, so we arrived at the hospital at 11 pm on the dot and were immediately admitted.

Since we were early, we decided to try laboring, but after the epidural was inserted the baby’s heart rate dropped precipitously and so Heather was rushed to an emergency C-section. Lucas was delivered in 3 minutes in excellent health!

Heather did a fantastic job and I am overwhelmingly proud of her. She is a super mom and has already breast-fed little Lucas Julio three times+!

Today, he has already slept on me 3 hours (check out picture 3). He has arrived just in time for my first father’s day!

 

¡Nos da un gran placer el anunciar que nuestro hijo, Lucas Julio Fidel-Floyd, ha venido! Nació a las 1:17 a.m. Está muy saludable, tiene 10 dedos de pie y de mano, ¡y un montón de pelo negro! Las enfermeras y los doctores del hospital Lenox Hill fueron muy amables y profesionales. Les debemos mucha gratitud. Lucas fue un campeón el domingo, pesando 8 libras y 5 onzas. Mide 21.85 pulgadas (o 55.5 centímetros).

Lloro bastante, pues estaba en el vientre de Heather por 8.95 meses, pero ahorita está muy feliz, hasta sonríe cuando duerme J

La noche del 4 de junio Heather comenzó con contracciones e inmediatamente fuimos al hospital. Hubieron complicaciones que los doctores pudieron superar con una cesaría de emergencia. Lucas Julio salió en 3 minutos del vientre y en salud excelente.

Lucas nació el mismo día de su bis-abuelo, Faustino de Jesús Núñez, patriarca de los Núñez Avilés. Heather me dio este regalo de tener un hijo a tiempo de ser el día del padre, en junio.
