First Snowfall

First snow out of our window.It is suddenly snowing outside. And quite heavily at that. Today is marks the first snowfall of this incoming winter. The snow itself is not sticking to the ground yet, but tree branches, cars and house roofs are turning white. The view out of our window is quite picturesque.

Trees through the snow.

First Shoes

First shoes.Today Arosha has gotten his first pair of shoes. All this time to this point he was doing fine with his super warm winter socks, but as the time went one he turned from somebody whose only skill was laying still, eating and pooping into a small human who wants to explore everything.

Arosha in a local park.These are nothing special. Just a pair of summer shoes that we could pick out at a local Payless. With the rate he’s growing he’ll grow out of them in a short amount of time — 3-4 months maybe? It still is a memorable event. Maybe it will be fun for him to go back in time and see his first pair of shoes.

One shoe is already gone. Luckily we saw this maneuver this time.Next trick is to teach him that shoes are good. He seems to be pretty good at kicking them off along with his socks.

Testing out a local bench.I’m so glad I took a picture of his foot against my hand when he was only one week old. It’s much bigger now.

Mother’s Day 2011

Arosha's sleeping on Alena.Today is Mother’s Day in the United States. Happy holiday, everybody!

I know it’s probably selfish of me, but this year I was awaiting it with extra joy. I am a Mother! This word is melting in my mouth like a bitter-sweet piece of chocolate. A Mother! This world rings in my ears like songs of little birds rejoicing the spring arrival. A Mother. This world makes my eyes tingle when I think of my Mom and of generations of Moms that came before her. A Mother. I can’t wait for my son to call me that.

Arosha fell asleep while we were doing grocery shopping.I have to be honest with you — I expected motherhood to be easier. I am not complaining, nor would I trade it for anything, but it’s tough. Emotionally. Physically. Sometimes I feel that I don’t deserve a break and that every spare minute of my time should be put to doing something useful for others (obviously it’s not the case). Sometimes I get angry for no apparent reason — I guess it’s sleep deprivation at work. Sometimes I worry that I am not good enough as a mother (especially after reading about babies sleeping through the night, babies who are potty trained by the age of one, babies eating solid food like champs, babies socializing with other babies or taking swimming lessons). BUT! No matter how tired or stressed I am, every time I look at Aroshka I feel so filled with love, that if I get just a drop more, it will spill out and flood the streets of Brooklyn. I want to hug him, and kiss him, and hold him close. Our baby. Our son. Our little piece of happiness.

Totally out.Happy mother’s day to all the mothers, and fathers, and sons, and daughters!
