I can’t believe my baby is going to be 1 soon. This year just flew right by before my eyes. I can honestly say that I’ve never been more tired lol. But I’ve also never felt this kind of love for someone. For the first time in my life, I felt a sense of purpose… to be a better person and a better role model for another human being. I also became more selfish in a sense that I want my child to learn from ME and not anyone else. I want to be the person to “show” Roman different places in this world, and teach him MY ways.
But anyhow, it’s safe to say that Chris and I are enjoying parenthood. And we’re both on the same page about having another one.
These past few months with Roman have been quite an experience. And I FINALLY know what it feels like when people say “my heart is full.” I’ve felt that multiple times just experiencing “firsts” with Roman. I can’t say enough how much I LOVE my son 🙂
So… onto the theme of his 1st birthday party…
There’s something about the movie “Coco” that just catches his attention. I think it’s the music and the colors. It’s definitely not something we had to force onto him. I’ve tried showing him other movies like “Pocahontas,” “The Lion King,” “Pets”… but nothing has quite an effect like “Coco.” I remember I was still pregnant when I first saw the movie. And I immediately fell in love with the story and wished that the after-life is that colorful. It made me think of my sister and personally wished that her life now is colorful and fun and filled with music.
And somehow, I think that Roman chose this movie because he could relate somehow… that he possibly met my sister before he came to this world. She would’ve loved to play with Roman. And who knows? Maybe she already did.
