Homeade Baby Food

I have recently decided to look into making my own baby food and am looking for some recipes, storage ideas, and equiment you use.....any info would help.....I just found this on a website which i think is a great idea because you can freeze them separately but they are still on the main container to keep organized and you can label!!!!

Breast Milk Storage Containers for Homemade baby food!

Sofia is already eating Rice Cereal and Oatmeal here and there and a couple gerber stage 1 veggies........but I know its a lot cheaper to make it myself.........because i can make like 5 meals for the price i would pay for one store bought!

I feel squishy!

Does anyone ever feel like this????

I feel really squishy and soft after having a baby....I guess from the outside i still look the same to eveyone......with a little help from jeans to hold it in and a push up bra....LOL

But for some reason ......i just feel very soft.....breasts, butt, belly .....eveywhere.....I find myself in the mirror have the exact same boobs as my mom........the ones i said "Dear God i hope i dont ever have those." know the ones that feel like socks with Oranges in the bottom.....

HAHAHAHA.....and this is only after 1 baby! I can only imagine what i have to look forward to after a few more!

Updates with pics/Sofia's new Earrrings

I know i always say i will update with pic.....but i never do....I am always here is a little update to my post about Sofia Growing up Quick .


Rolling over now!


Mirame! Mirame! Yo puedo tocar mis pies!


Finally..... I didnt cry on my belly !!! My Mami was so proud of me!


Leave me alone!


Stop taking my picture Mommy!


My Fifi Finally got her earrings!!!! Now she's officially a girl!


One more thing.......dont watch if you are sensitive.....I decided to film my Fifi getting her ears pierced....not because i want to watch her in pain....but there are so many family memebers missing out on things in her life that i really want to document as much as here is the video .....its a little long........but my reina is very dramatica!

What am I ?

I have been thinking alot lately ....what am I? an American a Panamanian a European Spaniard? I dont know anymore.....I mean i grew up in the United States. I am the 2nd generation here mother has never even been to Panama or Spain and neither have I!!!!! The worst part is that they dont even have any desire to go! My family seems to ignore their heritage. I mean they only speak Spanish at home....They only will speak spanish in public if they want to talk bad about someone and they dont want them to know!!!!! Its like they are ashamed for people to know that about them!

Since moving to the United States my family has only visited Panama once and never to Spain ....they rarely keep in touch with their family there......and if i mention even visiting there they think i am crazy!

When people ask my heritage and I say Panamanian/French/Spanish ...they always say no you are american because you are born in USA......I guess that is right as far as citizenship in concerned but I feel like i have no culture in me!

I feel like i know nothing of my culture.....I mean i understand spanish ....and i can dance to latin music and cook latino food......but i dont know Panama's or Spain's history,or their specific music, food , & traditions and if i even ask my family they say "why should you care you are an American now".....

Isnt this crazy!!!!!! I even find myself jealous when my friends go every year to their home countries ...they and very into their culture....sometimes i feel like my family robbed me of that!

Anyways I know my daughter will know her Puerto Rican roots because her father is very into his culture and we also go there every year....but im trying to learn more about Panama and Spain so that i can teach her that side too....Any suggestions????

OMG my baby is growing up quick!

Aside from the recent drama that has had me down lately ....I am super excited about little FIFI's recent accomplishments.....she had two in one weekend.....

First ...on Friday ....i had her on the changing table and i looked away for a minute...and when i looked back she found out how to grab her feet! Maybe this is small to somepeople but to me is huge!!!! She tried before but never could!!! unfortunately i couldnt take a pic because i coldnt leave her and the camera wasnt nearby :(

Second ....on Sunday she learned how to roll over....from back to belly! Although she still hates to be on her belly ........she was laying on the bed with me and she rolled over so fast like she had been doing it for years!!!!
