Secretly, I am excited to be included in the mom category, yay! Last year, today, was such a gentle time, such that I just had found out I was pregnant a month prior. Fast forward a whole year, here I am excited for what might be my new favorite holiday.
I can admit I am clearly very influenced by my mother. Down to my not so secret addiction of having fresh pretty nails daily. I have unintentionally caught on to so many of my mothers mannerisms, believes and personality characteristics. Honestly, I remember saying plenty of times “I will not be like my mother”, what a silly joke.
It has been a wild 5 months, Isabel is more than everything she is expected to be. Growing so rapidly and advancing as scheduled. I have to keep up with her! Sometimes she just stares at me with wondering eyes, like she can read my mind. She knows I am just winging it. She is, luckily, a very easy going babe filled with joy and smiles.

Life have changed. So incredibly that I feel a bit tangled. I wanted to touch base on something that had been effecting me in the recent months. I feel like I have lost my self, now in search of my new being and transforming into someone grater. I was not prepared, nor ready to open my heart to this new life. But to be real, I don’t think there is quite any advice or forum that could have been read to prepare anyone for the changes that happen to women after they have a child. This journey of self awareness comes with error. Being the best I can be, I could only hope that Isabel will want to be like me. I will show her grace, love, kindness and creative passion.
Have a wonderful day mommas.
