How has it been a year since this beautiful being has entered our life? When I first got pregnant I was so excited, but scared at the same time. Would I be a good mother? Would I know what to do? How would my life change? And the list goes on. I had no idea what to expect. Carlota came into our lives and our world has forever changed. She is such a beautiful soul and I’m so proud to be her mother.
This year has been a whirlwind. Many firsts, sleepless nights, late night online research, play dates, tantrums, pump breaks, diaper changes, tears and smiles. It has been the best year of my life, but also one of the toughest. I’m sure all you mothers reading this understand exactly what I’m talking about.
I love experiencing the world through her inquisitive eyes. Everything is so exciting and new. She loves playing outside, especially at the park. If she could go up and down the slide all day she would be very content. She is miss independent at her daycare. She likes to explore her surroundings and is chatty Cathy. We have no idea what she’s saying but she loves to talk. I wonder where she gets that from.
Her best friend at the moment is our Boston Terrier, Pinxo. They are best buddies. She runs after his favorite toy and brings it to him to play. He loves it. Not to mention she likes to feed him all her leftovers. Of course he is her sidekick. She’s a smart lady.
This weekend we celebrate Carlota’s birthday. I’m getting all the final touches ready. As much as she won’t remember it I can’t wait to look back at the photos from this amazing year and tell her all the wonderful memories she has instilled in our minds forever.
I thought I would be the one who would be teaching her about life….but as it turns out, she’s the one teaching me. I see the world very differently now with her in my life and I am very thankful for my little angel.
I can’t wait to share her first birthday with you. Thank you for being a part of our journey with us.
