I have lots to learn from all other moms - mainly from my mom who has been at it for more than 40 years... Benjamin, Norm or I couldn't have survived this last month without her.
We had a photo shoot! Please excuse baby's crazy face... I guess he must take after me and his cousin Juan Ma.
The proudest Nona ever!
At the end of the day, when you look at your little miracle and he looks back at you, 100% dependent on you, it makes all the crazies worth it. Then we quickly forget what it was like to have carried him around for 9 months, swollen feet, hands and short of breath. We quickly we forget the fear that we had before delivery or the unbearable pains we had afterwards, not to mention the hormones that went crazy and took over us. (I'm not here yet, but I am sure I will soon forget the fact that I pretty much have only 2 articles of clothing that fit around my current hips and belly... and one of them is a pair of yoga pants).
