Life with a baby is so unpredictable. Just when you think you know it all, and you are on the right track.. things go boom!!! There goes all your planning in the drain. As much as I love my sweet little bean, the unpredictability that comes with parenting is what I wasn’t ready or let’s say planned for! Every day is new. Every day comes with it’s own challenges. Every day she (and I) learn something new. Every day is different in our lives.
This bittersweet (but oh, so satisfying) experience, the struggles, the smiles, the tears, those cuddles, those long wakeful nights, and short playful days.. I want to absorb it all and cherish them deep in my heart forever since this time will never come back. She will never be a baby again. She keeps growing every minute, every second of the day. It feels like time is racing with me. And it’s such a delight to watch her personality unfold a little every day. I look at her and my eyes get watered so often, wondering how on earth is she mine! What did I ever do to get so lucky. I never get an answer back, so then I just thank the universe for making her mine. She is love. She is life. She is happiness. She is pure innocence.
I love her so.. my heart hurts.
It was a fabulous vacation, a wonderful break from my (not so) monotonous life. The little Missy enjoyed it too. I must say, she was a breeze! She loves being outdoors and I loved traveling with her.
Just like I promised there would be pictures from our trip, so here we go! As I said in my previous post that we did not carry our camera. Hence, iPhone came to the rescue! I tried capturing as many memories I could (and as much my phone memory allowed).
P.S. Philadelphia, you were beautiful. Though I’m not done with you! I’ll be coming back soon. 😉
In my last post I expressed how nervous I was about traveling with our little girl. However, to my surprise, traveling with her was smooth like butter! She was a breeze to be with; a lovely companion. We visited museums, hopped on tour buses, walked miles everyday aimlessly to find quaint neighborhoods and she loved all of it. I loved all of it. What a wonderful week we had. I did not feel like coming back – AT ALL. But all good things come to an end. So here we are.. back in Orlando city!
I have a confession to make. For the very first time, in ages (or I guess.. ever!!) we traveled without our camera. This has never happened before. Never. Specially since I started blogging, we’ve always carried my camera, but this time was different with little missy accompanying us. Though that did not stop me from clicking pictures on my phone. Ha! 🙂
I’m still sorting out pictures from our trip to post here on the blog. And I promise, the next post will have tons of travel pictures but for today, you’ll have to do with these pink shoes. Ha! After pink pants, who could’ve thought I’ll jump on to pink shoes so soon! But then again.. never say never! To be frank I’ve decided that from now on, I will try something unusual every time I dress up – just to be creative. Anything which I normally wouldn’t wear, or think of. All I can tell you is that I’m going to have some fun with my wardrobe. Like I said in my last post, fashion is supposed to be enjoyed. We need to make clothes work for us, and not the other way round. I’m a mum now.. so comfort is the key!
