Incredibly is been a year since my baby was born! The birthday of my little one was a series of events in which we celebrated her life but also the changes she made in our lifes. That’s why on this blogspot, my husband and I sat down to answer some questions regarding how we survived the first year of life.
Favorite memory: When she was born she brought a hurricane with her.
#1 baby item: Baby Einstein.
One thing mastered: Quick diaper change.
One thing still needs to be worked on: Making her fall asleep.
One thing you miss before she was here: Quiet time
Best advise received: Sleep when the baby sleeps!
One thing you will do before having another baby: Save more money!
She is your daugther because… She loves music.
Biggest challenge: Babysitting for a full day.
Favorite stage so far: Right now when she is just starting to walk.
One wish for the future: That she will love going to work with Daddy when she can.
Something special: I can see in her eyes that she is going to be Daddy’s girl 100%!
My favorite moment: When the hospital staff gave me my baby it was a very emotional moment. I was able to watch her really close and I was amazed about her little perfect nails. It was incredible to think what a woman can create.
#1 baby article: Baby swing. I haven’t seen a baby yet that doesn’t like swings. It entretains and clams them down. My baby used it until 8 months.
One thing mastered: My reflexes! I am able to jump from one side to another in a microsecond in order to avoid a bump.
One thing I still have to work on: Healthy meals! I am a terrible cook. I do not have problems on serving breakfast, lunch or dinner but I ran out of ideas when is time for a snack.
One thing I miss before she was born: Sleep late.
Best advise received: Enjoy every second because time flies.
Something I would have liked to know before having a baby: I would have saved so much money if someone would have talked to me into cloth diapers.
Something I would do before having another baby: Save money to give birth and a private hospital so I will be able to get pain medicines.
She is mommy’s baby because: she is a drama queen.
Biggest challange: Birth and breastfeeding in every stage.
Favorite stage so far: Between 3-6 months she stopped being so fragile, started being awake for longer times but didn’t move so much!
A wish for the future: That she never is the need of anything.
Something special: Before she was born, I didn’t know there was a place in my heart that was still empty.
