What a journey! She gives us so much joy and laughs! I love how stubborn and nervous she is. I love how fearless she is, how she follows her big brother, how she fights him and plays with him. I love how curious and adventures she is.  She has more teeth than hair, and she wakes up at 6 am everyday, but everyday she welcomes us with big smile on her face. I love you Esmeralda Liliana Micali!

Happy Birthday Cecilia!

Three; it’s the magic number.

Ceceilia, Jimmy and Teo have known each other almost since day one, three years ago. They spend rainy days and sunny days together. Their moms and I go through the good times and bad times. During motherhood’s hard times when you need someone you can trust and be honest with, we have each other. I can’t imagine the last three intense years of my life without them. I’m truly grateful for having them in my life.

These pictures are documentation of a fun time celebrating Ceceilia’s third birthday. They are also a record of three friends which have shared their young lives together and who are the basis of a special bond between three moms.
