Baby Boy's First Birthday!

Wow. Time came and went. 

One year later and Sebastian's turns ONE.

I couldn't hold my tears back this morning. I woke up feeling so grateful and blessed to have this little human in my life. Okay.... I think it FINALLY hit me that I am officially a mom and now, a mom to a toddler.

This past year, we fought so hard to give Sebastian the life and home he deserves. Check out my 2021 recap to see all the obstacles and milestones we faced to get to where we are today. 

Honestly, it was all for Sebastian.

Sebastian has truly been the light of our lives. Having a son definitely gave me a taste at true love. The type where I miss him when he falls asleep and I smother him with love and kisses when he is awake. I hold him like if its the first time, making sure he feels safe and secure in my arms. I love when he falls asleep in my arms, calls out "mamamamamamama" all in one, and plays peek-a-boo. He loves chasing after the soccer ball so there is a high chance we have the next Messi on our hands lol. He makes me so proud everyday with the progress and growth I see. Sebastian has such a kind heart, loves to make eye contact, explores out of curiosity and analyzes with unfamiliarity. SUPER INDEPENDENT! If I start to do something for him, he waits until I stop just so he can do it himself hahaha. He loves going out (gets that from me lol), enjoys long stroller rides to check out his surroundings, yelling randomly and all things music! He enjoys sounds and music so much so its either a soccer player or your next american (+ peruvian and guatemalan) idol lol.

Sebastian sleeps so well through the night getting around 10-11 hours every night with 1-2 naps during the day. He is eating well and experimenting with foods. We let him play with textures and allow him to take control following the baby-led weaning method. He grabs his food, is learning how to use spoon, a cup and we have slowly eased out of formula so that by his birthday (today), he will be drinking lactose-free and plant-based milk. 

I always questioned how we got sooooo lucky with Sebastian and I have come to the conclusion that it is all because of God's grace. I remember when I was little I always spoke about having a family and hoping my first born to be a son - God has been listening since I was young and I could not be anymore grateful. 

My little boy is not so little anymore and I think that is the part I now understand being a parent. Our first year was so beautiful and memorable. I can't wait for the years to come. 

To many more mom heartbreaks, food being thrown, kisses and cuddles. I wouldn't trade this life for anything. 

Happy Birthday Sebastian. Mommy and Daddy love you so much!
