As I am about to head to bed, I have all these thoughts when my little nugget sleeps. I think of all the past changes and coming changes in my life. Two years ago I arrived to the United States to get married to my awesome better half, twelve months ago we moved into our own apartment, ten months ago I became the mom of a beautiful baby boy and now we are about to move to our own house.
I don’t want to stress it but there is so much to do and so little time. My baby is growing so fast! Now he tries to grab me from the legs and climb to end up standing and I am sure that soon enough he is going to start walking. He is my sun and I am discovering how awesome it is to look at his face and see a smile coming, how amazingly brave he is when he tries to stand up every 5 minutes, how intelligent he is when I try to prevent him from getting hurt and he knows.

It’s exciting and challenging at the same time. I want to do it all and do it great for him. Play with him, learn with him, feed him. I feel like I am doing a lot of sacrifices in my life to be with him in his firsts years, because I believe that they are the most important. It’s like taking care of the seed until it is developing roots and then come out of the dirt.
I want to be the best mom I can be for my baby and for my family. Teach him good manners and tell cute stories, say a prayer before bed and tuck him when he uncovers himself in the middle of his sleep.
I have to be humble enough to know that when I pray, God is in control of his and my life. I pray for him to receive guidance, intelligence, wisdom, good will, courage, understanding, discernment, knowledge, among other virtues. I make all those promises of the Bible, mine. I pray every night for him to be a godly man who follows the Lord and obeys the law out of love and admiration.
Oh God, guide me on how to be the best mom I can be. God, give me the strenght and wisdom I need.
