I am working on getting a good video of Ben doing his drunken sailor impression. His first wobbly steps are so exciting! It’s amazing to see how much he improves each day.

I am entering a whole new phase of being in love with this little guy. I fall harder for him every day…I am smitten. It doesn’t help that he does ridiculously adorable things like makes dog sounds in spanish when he sees a pup, “guau guau!” (sounds like wow wow) or talks in his sleep and says, “uh oh… uh oh…”

After a year of Ben, I feel like I am arriving home from a long trip. I feel like I disappeared from my life, from friends, from myself, from the world. Not bad, just went on a long journey to a brand new country and instead of coming home to the place I thought I left, I see that it is all different. I am now rearranging the furniture, hanging the drapes and making it home again.

There is some sadness in letting go of what used to be and a joy in loving what is new/now. I suppose it was an illusion to think that things weren’t always changing all the time. It was just never so obvious until now.

Like I said before, I love the metaphor of the new year and starting fresh. Ben is walking now, (well, wobbling now) and that is how I enter the new year with him: Teetering across the floor, gaining new ground every day, feeling proud of each new step, and falling over and saying, “uh oh” in my sleep.

Hi, I’m Andrea

On this blog you’ll be learning with me how to use our voices, share our creative superpowers and live life in full color.

As an artist, photographer, life coach + mentor, I’m redefining what it means to be a SUPERHERO — ‘cause in my world, it’s got nothing to do with capes, spandex or sidekicks and everything to do with tenderness, intuition & baby steps of bravery.
