Memorial Day

I’ve always been one to celebrate holidays and decorate my house to celebrate each passing holiday but now that I have a little bambino of my own, I want to celebrate the holidays even more than I already did. As I mentioned in a previous post, Amaya was born on the last day of the year last year…December 31st, so literally right from the first day of the year, everything has been a new beginning and new first for her. I always thought I’d be the mom with self control and who wouldn’t go crazy and spoil their child but I’m here to raise my hand and admit my guilt that, I give this girl whatever she pleases (or whatever Mommy thinks she needs) and holidays have been no exception.

So what if I bought her 3 different patriotic themed outfits with matching hair accessories so far…
I justify my purchases to myself (and to B haha) that she can also use said outfits for upcoming holidays such as Flag Day and the Fourth of July. BOOM!!!

But yes, homegirl was rocking her first patriotic outfit this Memorial Day to honor those who served and dedicated their lives to our freedoms. We went down to visit my sister since my nephew was walking in a few parades and of course I had to go support my handsome godson.

This is my nephew Jameson nom-ing on his puffs and my sassy sister Tara who had a little ‘photo shoot’ while I had my camera out. She’s ridiculous and I love her.
Now onto the parade.
It was a fun parade even though it was hot as hell out.
When Amaya and I went home that night we even had a little photo shoot. I can’t take the cuteness that is a baby in festive holiday outfits. Ooooh this girl is in trouble for Halloween and Christmas.
I just want to eat her up.
I know it’s probably getting old how much I profess my love and adoration from my child but she’s the absolute cutest. Those curls, those eyes, that nose, those lips…..I just kiss her apart on a daily basis. I’m lucky to be an American and to be this girls momma.
