There were tigers, elephants, giraffes, monkeys and more but I can't say that any of those animals impressed you more than the water features at the LA Zoo. You were screaming "Agua!" non-stop. Any pool of water, fountain or waterfall drove you into a screaming fit of excitement. You've since learned a lot more about animals so maybe next time you'll actually notice we're at the ZOO!
P.S. you did look ridiculously cute in your little giraffe dress and bejeweled Circo sandals.
You might have a lot of toys, tons of clothes and a lot of everything. But there's one thing you have that I hope someday you will understand is more valuable than anything Mommy and Daddy could every buy. You have SIX great-grandparents who were still alive to see you born. Both your Great Grandma Ricci (Gaga Gigi) and Great Abuelita Alba (Gaga Aba) have come to see you this year and are completely obsessed with you.
My husband calls it insanity. I call it essential. When we moved into the new house, getting these closets organized was my first order of business. Having a baby can send your brain in a million directions and if your environment is chaotic, there's just no space for peace. So... I let my neurotic need for organization take over the nursery AND the playroom! Best resources? The Container Store of course! and Target...
My name is Angelica, I live in Hollywood, CA with my husband and our baby girl, June Alba. I’ve worked in the music business for about 20 years and I currently work for a major record label in Beverly Hills, CA. I started this blog as a way of battling postpartum depression... and after serious complications in childbirth, I became very aware of how precious and short life is... I want my daughter to read this blog someday and understand how much I care for her and all my thoughts and feelings about what a joy it has been to have her in my life.
