What three words best describe your child? Beautiful, hungry and smiles.
What songs do you sing to your baby? Sweet pea.
Does your baby have any nicknames? Where did they come from? Mamacita. In Mexico, It’s used as a term of endearment for a little girl.

Can you tell us a funny or memorable story about your birth experience? My 1st pregnancy was an emergency c-section where I got completely sedated and didn’t know what went on. This time around, listening to everything that was going to happen, had me a nervous wreck. I walked into the OR and told the doctor I couldn’t do this and I didn’t know how they were going to get this baby out.
