In your arms
There’s nothing sweeter than to have your own child sleep in your arms. The fact that you are the only person he draws security from. The fact that your mere warmth and the sound of your heartbeat bring him comfort.
This is one of the things I truly love and treasure.
Thank You for this blessing of oneness, of parenthood, of life at its simplest.
Excited for Marcelo’s 1st birthday and its gonna be a Mexican Fiesta!
Anonymous asked: Your son is sooooo cute! Altho i don't want to have a child yet since i'm not yet married and i feel unprepared(!!), your son is just so adorable! Honestly, i've never seen a cuter child online. Soooo far haha. He's so cute really.
WOW. Thank you so much, for a mother, that’s the best compliment! Thank you thank you :) Haha its okay, was feeling unprepared as well when he came along but pulled through with a lot of support from family and friends :)
My Little Burrito
You just turned 8 months old, my love. How time flies. You were just in my big tummy not too long ago and now… You’re almost 11 kilos heavy and tall like most 1-year-olds. This early, mommy already knows how strong your zest for life is! Your curiosity is like no other, your movements are way beyond your years or should i say months? You’re simply extraordinary and I thank God everyday for giving me such a sweetheart, joy and blessing.
Now, you’re stocking up on more tricks. Gestures for “Patay lamok”, “Strong”, “NO”, “Jump”, “Sit down”, and “Close Open” plus some syllables (your occasional “Mama”) like Dada, Baba, Papa are all making mommy so happy and excited for more milestones coming my way! And how can I resist getting all giddy over your first tooth? Its starting to come out and mommy’s over the moon! Oh wait, I won’t forget how I get so ecstatic when I see you smile and hear you laugh… Haaaay. These are all wonderful things and I’m so thankful for them!
I love you, my dearest burrito and I can’t wait to witness more wonderful miracles from you <3
4 years, a lifetime to go
It’s almost an hour before the clock strikes 12. By then we would be celebrating our first year “wedding” anniversary and coincidentally, our fourth year of being together.
Time flew by so quickly, my love. I was just telling Sab earlier that it was just like yesterday. I remember vividly the night we found out I was pregnant- the same night I knew you were the one for me. The same night I knew, you will be a great father to our child.
You’ve been such a blessing in my life, Saz. Thank you for letting me be who I am and for pushing me to be better. For believing in me when I’m in my lowest of low. For loving the unlovable in me. For all the sacrifices and selflessness. For making me feel beautiful when I’m not- I look into your eyes and I see the best of me. Thank you for giving your best shot in everything. For providing for our family. For being generous and humble. For making me laugh every single day (no fail). For the passion you have for your vocation. For inspiring me. For giving me the world (although just having you and Marcelo, means the world to me) For everything, thank you.
With you, I can take on pretty much anything life throws at me! Still in awe at how “fight-less” our relationship is now that we’re married. HAHA. Luck’s on our side. :P
Happy anniversary to my best friend, my favorite enemy, my cheerleader, my bully, my husband, my God’s best, my everything. I love you so much.
