Celebrating Babys First with Pampers #PampersFirsts

Celebrating babys first moments with Pampers. From finding out that you are pregnant, to laying eyes on your little bundle of joy. Pampers knows how important all of those moments are.
Not only are they #1 choice of hospitals in North America and the first diaper worn by millions of babies. Pampers Swaddlers are soft, thin and perfect to help protect and give babies the comfort they need during all of those first moments.

Pampers Swaddlers is now available through size 6 - baby girl love that news.
She loves her Pampers diapers and the Sesame Street gang!
Pampers Swaddlers is one of the softest diapers from the Pampers line and they offer up to 12 hours protection and come with a wet indicator that changes color when it's time to change babys diaper.
Comfort, softness and protection you can trust!

I was so excited to host my Pampers Viewing party with family and friends, I love sharing products I love and Pampers is definitely one of them.
Pampers provided us with goodies for our guests, which included Pampers Swaddlers and Pampers Baby Wipes. Baby girl wanted to take all the diapers, I don't blame her :)
Pampers cutie!
Watching Pampers First Video. Celebrating baby firsts moments.
We Love Pampers!
I can't believe I was able to contain myself from seeing the Pampers First video, I wanted to watch it with my family and friends so that I could feel what they were feeling. Watching it together for the first time. 

A few tears were shared during the video. Watching some of the scenes and reminiscing when our babies, were tiny or when they were born.
So excited to see that Pampers knows how important all of those first moments are!
After watching our video, we all took our turn at filling out a quick review of Pampers Swaddlers on the Pampers website here.
It's always nice when a company wants to hear what their users have to say. You can also go online and let them know what you think about Pampers Swaddlers.
To make things even better Pampers has developed a micro - site that will allow you to upload your own images from you computer or Facebook gallery, so you can create a :15 second video to share out with friends and family via Facebook and/or twitter. The video will highlight your babys photos and all their first milestone moments.

So what are you waiting for?
Go make babys video and share with your loved ones :)

Make sure to check out the Pampers Swaddlers Website
and follow Pampers on Twitter & Facebook .

Thank you Pampers for making this party possible.

I've been out of it and lacking with exercising but that's what life is all about. You fall down and you get right back up. No one said it would be easy. So, I'm taking it nice and slow and training for two short races coming up in April, which is just right around the corner. I've been making sure to do cardio at home and get some very short runs in. Can't wait to run in races again, it always brings the competitive side out in me and I always want to beat myself to the finish line :)

Are you training for anything?

So excited to host a #PampersFirsts Viewing Party

 Our little Jellybean
Jellybean was super excited to see all the goodies for our Pampers Firsts viewing party

I was so excited to work with Pampers on this campaign.
Pampers is one of our go to diapers, I was able to use them 10 years ago with my munchkin and I was excited to use them with baby girl. They only keep getting better, plus I love that each time that my mom is around she reminisces about the time I wore Pampers myself. They are definitely a part of our family. We love the fact that they are thin yet they handle so much. The little color indicator is a perfect plus, that way you know if baby is too wet and needs a new diaper change.
With this campaign I get to host a viewing party with family and friends where we get to see Pampers new video celebrating baby first moments. From the moment you get to see baby on the screen to all the other beautiful first moments.  It couldn't have come at a better time, as we are celebrating Jellybeans first birthday and many more first this year. I'm sure this video will be a very touching one. Yes, I have the link already but I promised to not watch it until we are at the party. I want to experience my first reaction with my family and friends at the same time as them :)

Jellybean loves Pampers Swaddler diapers, especially seeing friendly characters on them

We are also celebrating the fact that Pampers Swaddlers is now available through size 6 - yippee!!
Many things to be celebrated and I can't wait to share with you guys :)

Stay tuned to a post after the party to see who everything turned out.

In the meantime make sure to visit the Pampers Swaddler Website

Stay warm & safe!

Valentina Turns One

                           My baby is officially a toddler, how did that happen? Why did time go by so fast.
I swear this year went by way too fast, I don't remember Miguel's first year goby so fast.
We will be having baby girls official 1st year birthday party next Saturday the 14th. All of the family is available on that day and hopefully the weather will be better, no snow!
In the meantime I thank God for our precious little princess, she is such joy in our lifes.
We love you, baby girl!

8 Days to go...

Valentina at 3 weeks old
What my February 2014 calendar looked like

It's February 1st and I'm feeling so nostalgic. How is it possible that last year during this time I was counting down the days till Valentina came into this world. I'm going to be honest, I was scared. Scared about the giving birth part, yes I already knew what it was going to be like. I mean this is my second child, but that's the scary part. When you are pregnant with your first child you just know what they tell you about the pain of child birth, you haven't experienced it for yourself and you think it will be a piece of cake and than the day comes to have the baby and you think you are going to die from the pain, no joke! 
With Miguel it was natural child birth, no epidural and it was 18 hours of labor pain and just thinking about going through that again was making me nervous. For Valentina I also knew that I wanted to go the natural way no epidural. So, the days leading up to Valentinas due date I was scared.
I remember I kept telling my husband what if I'm not strong enough, but I'm so blessed with a wonderful husband that always believed in me and kept reminding me that I was a strong woman.

Now it's February 2015 and instead of counting down the days till baby girl is here with us, we are counting down the days till she turns 1.
My baby will technically be a toddler but she will always be my baby.
Time needs to slow down and my babies need to stop growing up so fast.

What are you looking forward to this February?

This is all there was on the news last night.

Blizzard 2015?
 That's all we keep hearing on the news. De Blasio came on last night saying that 
we are expecting the worst snowstorm in history, there will be in accumulation of 3 feet of snow.
Schools were open today on day but they will be closed tomorrow Tuesday. The transportation system will also be shut down at 11pm so that cleaning crews can get around the city and for our safety. I took advantage today while picking munchkin up from school and filmed a little for my YouTube channel, you can check it out :)
The wind was already scary and the snow was definitely wild. I'm happy for the snow day because this momma is very sick. I have some sort of flu and I'm feeling very crappy :(
So yay for snow days.
Hope it's warmer where you guys are at!
And for my New Yorkers please stay safe and warm.

Kary xoxo
