Guess Who’s Back?

Hello….is anybody out there?

I’ve been gone for so long, being a busy mom to a preschooler will do that to you.

Over the past few years, my daughter and I have managed to conquer potty training, have weaned and we took on the giant task of ending co-sleeping (we’re still working on that lol).

My big girl now goes to Pre-K and we’re applying for Kindergarten.

Writing all this down makes me realize HOW QUICKLY TIME JUST FLIES BY! It seems like only yesterday I was holding my infant and now my daughter is dressing herself and has friends. WHAT? How did that happen?

One good thing is that I have a bit more time to blog…so this year you can expect posts about a variety of different topics…if anyone out there is reading and has any suggestions, comment below. Let’s talk about any and everything!

Happy New Year Mamis

Long time no post!

Hi Mamis…

 

Sorry for not posting in a while…I’m actually in the process of revamping the blog…stay tuned for the new format, I think you’re going to like it!

And even though I missed posting something for Mother’s Day (really…every day should be Mother’s Day but that’s a separate post)…below is picture reminding each and everyone of you of your importance 🙂

Have a great day Mamis!!!

Happy New Year Mamis! 2014 and I’m still breastfeeding!

Happy New Year!

2014 is here and I am still breastfeeding (I can’t believe it!). I didn’t think I’d be doing it for this long, I was certain that once meatball started solids, she’d prefer real food to mama’s milk but nope! She still loves to nurse whenever I am near, and she loves to nurse herself to sleep.

A lot of people ask me why I’m still doing it, or rather they tell me I need to stop (family members included -_-) and all I say is that I don’t have any plans on weaning my daughter. I want her to go off the boob at her own pace. Now let me just say that this is what WORKS for us and is not necessarily what everyone should do. Always assess your situation, desire and need and take it from there.

Nursing a toddler is not easy, it gets annoying and sometimes I wonder when I will get my boobs back, but for me…it’s just not something I plan to give up until she goes to college……KIDDING!!! LOL KIDDING!!!!!

Are any of you mamis still nursing past 6 months? 1 year? More? Did you wean? Why? Sound off on the comments mamis!

MUAHZZZZZ

Have a great evening 🙂

So true! It’s good to research but always follow your gut!

I couldn’t agree more with this! There are so many ways to do things for your baby, and it’s great to learn more but what’s ultimately best is to follow your natural mami instinct.

Have a good night mamis!!!

I love meatball/Amo mi albĂłndiga

One of my favorite things to do is to stare at meatball. She’s the most beautiful girl in the world to me. I stare at her and I wonder what her life will be like. What will she be like? Where will she go and what path will she take? Of course only time knows what her future will be, all I know for certain is how much I adore her. She’s the light of my life, there is nothing I wouldn’t do for my meatball. Breastfeeding and co-sleeping have helped me to tap into my strong maternal instinct. Though it is challenging at times and some people don’t understand it, I wouldn’t change anything I’ve been doing. I so strongly believe that babies are made for holding and nurturing. We need to embrace the natural mother that resides in all of us and set her free then watch our babies thrive.

Una de mis cosas favoritas para hacer es mirar a mi albóndiga. Ella es la chica más hermosa en el mundo para mí. La miro y me pregunto cómo será su vida? ¿Qué va a ser? ¿Dónde está dispuesta a llegar y qué camino va a tomar? Por supuesto que sólo el tiempo sabe lo que su futuro será, lo único que yo se con certeza es lo mucho que la adoro. Ella es la luz de mi vida, no hay nada qué yo no haría por mi albóndiga. La lactancia materna y el hecho de dormir con ella me han ayudado a descubrir mi instinto maternal. Aunque a veces es difícil y hay gente que no me entienden, no cambiaría nada de lo que he estado haciendo. Yo creo con mucha confianza qué los bebés son para abrazar y criar. Tenemos que aceptar a la madre natural que reside en todos nosotras y dejarla salir para luego ver a nuestros bebés triunfar.
