It all started 14 years ago when I first became a mom! That day everything made sense to me... I found my calling, I found myself... I became a mom! The happiest moments of my life have been sitting in a rocking chair, rocking my babies´ dreams, seeing into their eyes the future, my past, my present. Ale and Emi grew up, life changed a little even though I remained deeply in love with my babies, longing for our wordless love affair in the middle of the night, but still enjoying their ¨firsts¨ as tweens, as teens...! And then the surprise of our lives... along came Ari!
We never planned for her, even though I think we did all along, at least I know it was definitely written in stone that she was meant for us! All my babies have been planned c-sections, her birthday was planned too, but she changed it, and came one day, without notice, one late afternoon of February. She was born with her eyes wide open, she was calm, and happy, nothing worried or bothered her, she was perfect, beautiful, really beautiful and pink! She was this little brand new old soul! I remember I would spend my days just looking into her big almond eyes, and loving her sooo hard! This time around I was calmer and I made note to myself to really breath in every second with this baby, and every second with Ari, was also a moment of the lives of Ale and Emi I got to relive!
Still time has gone by so fast that here we are celebrating her 4th birthday. She is still our sweet baby, not that calm anymore, but as happy a little girl as you can imagine! She enjoys every little thing that crosses her path, and I can assure you that every person that crosses her path will enjoy her smile, her way, her life!
For her birthday of course she wanted to be a princess, so Princess she was! We gave her all that she wanted, or maybe it was what we wanted! a big cake, a little tea party, a doll house and the coolest magician ever! But aren´t these the moments that we will still cherish 50 years from now?
So here are some pictures of ¨her royal highness tea party
To begin her day she got 4 red roses
A princess tiara and a chocolate cake
And then some serious tea party to enjoy with her fellow princess friends!
Her awe and surprise was priceless!!!
Then it was piñata time!!! See how fancy and nice looking piñatas are here? People don´t understand how it is that kids don´t cry when it comes time to hit their favourite character for some toys. I guess they grow up with this tradition, and really enjoy it! Maybe not the hitting part, but the toy part!!!
And finally, it was time for her very own birthday cake!!! She has sang happy birthday to her on as many cakes as have cross her path, but this time it was really her day!!!! Now, she´ll have to patiently wait for next February.... while asking everyday what month we are in!
Hope you have a great week!!!
