3 years ago

(This was supposed to be posted yesterday but a busy day didn't allow it so it is better late than never)

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.
