Sweet baby, your name is love


Allow me to introduce you to my love, baby Albert. He is two months and a half and he has completely changed my life. I love love love being a mom and I hope I am a good one. The beginning was hard, I had a hard time turning into mom mode, every time he'd cry, it would be a torment for me because I had no idea how to calm him. But it came to me...eventually and it came most naturally. In spite of all the advice received (most people tend to overwhelm young moms with questionable advice that usually does more harm than good), I decided to follow my maternal instinct. And, thank God, so far we're ok.
This is Albert, after his baptism, wearing his special costume for the event. Kissessssssssss

I am so happy for you. It is great being a mum isn't? Despite the tiredness it is worth it! He is a beautiful baby and I love his outfit, very original and elegant.
All the best Petronela! Baci baci.

You'll be a great mom. The fact that you are so concerned to be doing the right thing shows you're already there. And you're right - follow your instincts. The thing to remember about the flood of advice is that people can only advise based on what worked for them. They forget that every baby is different, so the best advice may not work for you.

He is gorgeous. Which you know.
I have been wondering how you are, and am glad to see just how magical things are. Tired, but beautiful.

Dear Petro,

Albert is gorgeous. Handsome. The eyes are like gems of intense blue.
You are quite right: listen to your inner voice. You can hear tips to reach conclusions about doubts, but only you can decide. You are the best.

Greetings.

Your baby is beautiful!! Look at those gorgeous blue eyes. And since my father was named Albert, I guess you know I love his name. I had no doubt you'd be a great Mom! Hugs XX

He is adorable and I'm sure you are both learning new skills everyday. Watch out! In a very short time he'll turn into a teenager. It's an even more risky process.

So adorable. I'm glad you and he have found your rhythm. Motherhood is probably one of he most important tasks to learn, but luckily we have the instincts to help us along. I'm sure you're doing a fab job.
