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 […]

The Three E’s

Elon’s first Christmas was spent with Lolo and Lola while his parents watched Star Wars in the morning. He slept from 11:30 am occasionally waking up to eat and change the wet diaper. He slept through until dinner and slept again when he reached home.Elon was quite the giver making sure the people around him […]

A Rewind: While Pregnant

There are so many things people say about pregnancy. It is one thing to talk about it and it is another being one. I had been one and let me tell you about it. You don’t always get offered a seat  I take the subway going to work while pregnant. I worked until 7 days […]

Way Up (In the Gardiner), I Feel Blessed.

Do you ever feel so blessed that you cry? Lately I have been feeling not what you might call tears of joy but something more than that. Will I call it over gratefulness? Maybe, but there is not such a word. This year has been full of blessings but it is nothing short of something […]

Finally Someone Noticed!

Finally! Someone noticed I was pregnant and I did not have to say anything. A lot of people are finding my pregnancy “small”. Not sure who their basis are. Some even asked me where the baby is. Girl, I am telling you, he is somewhere under this shirt. Calling myself pregnant has actually been very […]

We’re Two, I mean Three!

How does it feel like to have a whole person inside you? Okay I am not talking about a monster or alien movie. I am talking about a real life person, with feelings, maybe some hair, yes to covered with skin and most probably looks much like you. The first time I confirmed that I […]
