After two and a half days of labor finally Nicolas was born on February 23, 2009 at 9:41am. I remember it like yesterday. I often describe this moment is euphoric. I remember holding him and crying because I could not believe that after the 9 months of protecting him in my belly he was finally out.
With each year there have been ups and downs but I can honestly say that after the first year of adjustments there have been many more ups than downs.
This is where I am going to be an annoying mom and say why Nic is so wonderful. He is sweet, thoughtful, loving, smart, polite, a mama's boy, full of energy, loves TV, loves his school, prays every night for all his family, friends, teachers and tv characters (LOL).
And everyday I pray that he continues to learn and explore the world but stays away from all the bad that is in it. I pray that Leo and I continue to work on being the best people and best parents to Nicolas and the little guy in my belly.
Papi and Mami love you Nicolas and hope you had a great birthday! Here are some pictures of him as time has passed.
