Elon is 5 months!

  Happy 5 months, Elon! Although taking care of you is sometimes challenging (not hard!), my love always outweighs it all.  When I sleep at night, I always remember to pray because I have to ask God to keep you away from SID. I also re-watch your videos from my phone and Snapchat. And I also […]

One Sweet Morning 

The first morning when you woke up without crying and you smiled at me as if to say good morning. I thought you actually knew who I was. The smile was not some random smile related to gas anymore like the first few months. The smile meant something and was an assigned emotion. I remember picking you up from your crib to our bed. Your dad was still sleeping but I was already awake and then you opened your eyes, and then you recognize that I was not just your source of food. You knew I was family. I have never seen someone’s eyes so full of joy and admiration as if I was the most beautiful thing he had ever seen. Despite my morning face, my morning breath, my disheveled hair, you looked at me and you smiled and you made me feel I am prettier than Kate Middleton and Princess Diana combined. Your dad never made me feel that way, but you did – with one big smile in that one winter morning at 6AM.

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 […]

Baby Blues

Let’s talk about baby blues.  Before I was discharged from the hospital, the nurse had warned me that a week after I might find myself crying with no particular reason. They call it baby blues. It will be brought by my ever changing hormones because my body is going through a lot. I thought to […]
