Dedicated To You On Your First Birthday

His first birthday is upon us, I can not help but to feel overwhelmed with emotions. My baby is growing and it is happening faster than I ever imagined. It feels like just yesterday I held him in my arms for the first time, waiting patiently to hear his first cry. That quickly stumbled into…

Family Fun in Miami

My baby is getting bigger by the minute and his energy is growing with him. He wants to see the world, touch everything and explore. With that said, I have been thinking of places to take him and things to do with him. That is when my aunt (who has four little ones) gave me…

Fresh Banana Bread

I typically buy bananas in bulk at costco or at our local grocery store because I make smoothies in the morning or grab one on the go. Everyone has there own food staples at home and bananas are definitely one for me. Because I buy so many bananas, I often try to figure out what…

Caring for a Baby with Cold & Fever

Having a sick baby is tough. ESPECIALLY as a first time mother. Everything is new, scary and unfamiliar. The first time my baby got sick and vomited, I freaked out and took him straight to the children’s hospital. As a parent, you feel helpless and not knowing what to do or what to expect is…

I Felt Broken … Postpartum

Post partum is a sensitive subject mainly because every mother experiences it differently. I did not quite understand it until I experienced it for myself. I think of the “baby blues” as a time a mother grieves subconsciously the emptiness within. For almost a year you and baby are connected as one. When you give…

My Home Birth Story.

The moment after I would catch my baby was supposed to be filled with nothing but pure joy and happiness. Magic in the air. I wanted so much to be able to just bond and care for him. But child birth is unpredictable. I had a plan, a vision, but not everything goes according to plan all the time…

The Beginning of Something Great

I have been wanting to start this whole “mom blog” for some time now but the fact that I haven’t until now… 6 months later after my baby was born… says a lot about what it is like being a mom. I have no time. Don’t get me wrong… I have plenty of time especially…
