19.4 - 19.6 in SOUTH FLORIDA
I've been anticipating this trip to South Florida for so long. This is the first time we've returned since moving back to New York in November - and it couldn't come fast enough. As much as I love New York, I can't see myself here too much longer, and I definitely don't see myself raising you here. While this place is filled with diversity and culture, I cannot imagine having you couped up in the house for most of the year because it's too cold outside. As a kid who was raised in the islands, I'd love for you to be able to play outside whether it's August or December - I'd love to be able to take you to the beach year round and do lots of outdoor activities. But of course, there's no place like New York in the summer.
Moving to back to New York has taught me a huge lesson - the grass isn't always greener on the other side.
In any event, we arrived in SoFL around 12:30am on Friday morning only to wake up around 7am. I couldn't believe how gorgeous it was outside. Before we knew it, it was time for your Auntie Jay's graduation from the 5th grade. I secretly got a little emotional, I feel as though she was just born and now she's heading to middle school. Then I started thinking about the fact that in the blink of an eye you'll be graduating from elementary school. I know it's way too early to think about that, but I couldn't help it, lol.
I hope to send you to the same school that Auntie Jay goes to - God willing!
Besides the graduation, we had another family event that was amazing.
In all, our trip was short but very sweet. It further solidified the fact that I want to move back to South Florida as soon as I can.
Daddy and I kept talking about the fact that the next time we travel on a plane, it will be completly different. We'll have you, a stroller, baby bag, etc - it'll be a new experience.
I also spoke to my moms pastor and told him that I would like him to baptize you and that he is the only person I want to do it. Luckily for me, he agreed and said that he'll do it the first Sunday when you are 3 months old to represent the Father, the Son and The Holy Spirit. Nana (because she says you're not allowed to call her Grandm, lol) is already brainstorming for the party she wants to celebrate your Baptism. I can't wait, and everyone is so excited for me to bring you back to Florida with me :)
