Motherhood x2

Let me start not with “the woman I find most beautiful…” Too cliche. Beauty is relative. But cuteness is absolute. My mom is the cutest. Period. No questions. She is the standard when it comes to cuteness. Many people have already told me that Elon looks like my mother. And I totally agree most of […]

To More Poutines and Caramel Sundaes 

Edward,  You probably think this letter for our anniversary is overrated. It is true. I have written too much about you on this blog that I even have a category named “Edwards” just to store all posts about you. But I also admit that I have neglected you since Elon was born. As I write […]

Rainbows and Butterflies (and a little rain)

It will be almost 60 days since Elon was born. Since day one, I have been with him 24/7. During the times that I am awake from when he was born, I looked at him, kissed him, held him, and cared for him. The rest of the times, that I am asleep, I dreamt about […]

Three Hours is a Blessing

You know what my prayer is every night? For Elon to extend his sleep. Elon is a demanding baby. He is not a colic baby but he needs to get what he wants when he asks for it. Pronto. In a way, like me. Yes totally like me so I understand my son. But sometimes […]

He slept through until dinner and slept again when he reached home.Elon was quite the giver making sure the people around him […]

Elon, what do you mean? 

Having a newborn looks so easy. What can a half human being need that’s so hard to understand? Apparently, a LOT!! They cry, it might be pee. They cry, it might be poo. They cry, they might be hungry. They cry, it might be they want to cuddle. They cry, maybe they need to burp? […]

When I first saw you, Elon

Love at first sight? NO!!! When Karen told me to look down to see Elon for the first time, here were my random thoughts: “He has hair!!! I was bald when I was born” “Is he normal? Does he have any birthmark on his face?” “Ok let me see the hands, the fingers, are they […]

Elon was born! (Labor timeline)

Hello friends! I wanted to share the timeline when I gave birth to Elon. I am writing this because I wanted to remember how it all went down for my first newborn. Here it goes: November 18 (Wednesday): Last day of appointment with my OB. This is what I thought to be the last day since […]
