Nostalgia: First Cry


When people ask me what it is that I remember the most when I gave birth, I always tell them  that it would be my babies' first cry. My first memories of Basti and Sam would be their wide mouth bawling their hearts out into my face and into my heart, the smell of their sweet breath, and so distinct -- the sound of their first cry.

With Simon, my first memory would be him being held upside down by my OB and him crying so angrily and loudly, as if in protests at being handled that way. I do feel though that the moment I was supposed to hold him my arms was stolen from me because I was groggy, I didn't even know he was there already on my chest. 

So this is my Nostalgia moment for this week. I missed posting the week before and the week after Mother's Day and so I am being nostalgic about my boys' first moments in the world. 

Join us every Thursday at Nostalgia, hosted by Rose. 


  1. What a cutie and adorable baby! Sure it was the best experience of motherhood. Sulit talaga ang sakit ng panganganak when you heard your baby's cry, finally saw him and carried him in your bosom.

    I am here for my Nostalgia visit. My entry is up and running here:

    Thanks for dropping by dear and nice meeting you here at Nostalgia and KID.

  5. @mommy clars, natawa naman ako sa tanong mong yan, hahaha. Basta ang alam ko, my eldest's and second's birthdays are 7 days apart and I'm sure they're made on the same day but 4 years apart, hehehe. Magkapareho siguro sila birthday kung di nainduce ang second one. Kaya I believe dun sa chinese conception calendar ba yun? e pano naman gumawa ng girls, ahaha?

    @january, tenks! bilib nga ako sa mga scrap mo sa post, eh.

    @lainy and willa, sulit talaga. Basti did not cry kasi naipit sya because I didn't know how to push. Up to now, I'm thinking of how I almost lost my first born. God is good.
