of all, I think that our first child left special
memories in our mind because we had no experience,
and each day was in some way different to the
other. Each child has its own unforgettable moment,
but the first one, after all, will always be our
first great experience.

away from the capital city, or on hour by plane. My
husband wanted to have our baby in Mexico City, so
we planned for me to stay approximately a month and
a half in my parents' house until the baby had all
the required vaccines, and of course until my
parents-in-law and my parents met the baby.

was important that he/she wait to be born until his
father was with us in Mexico City. The date that
the doctor gave me for the birth was July 29 or 30,

always by my side, talking to me, telling me about
when she had her first child.

me, asking for us. I was so proud and happy to tell
