#Giveaway Thank You Baby: When Baby was Born a Mother was Born (Pampers Prize Pack)

This review was made possible by Double Duty Divas and Pampers. I was provided the featured product free of charge to facilitate my review, but all opinions are 100% mine.


11 years ago, I found out I was pregnant. I was very scared. I did not know what to expect, nor did I know how my life would change. I can remember the first time it all became real to me was not after seeing that first sonogram, but when I felt that first kick. It was from then on, that I really felt baby, that the reality of what was about to happen to me in just a few months, came to life. When I started to prepare for my daughter's arrival, I was doing it alone, and I was shocked when a group of friends from work held a surprise baby shower for me.

The day that I was to deliver had to be scheduled, and the induction was very long. It had gone on for 2 days, but when it was finally time to deliver, it seemed to happen so fast. My Dr had told me he was going to break my water, and when I sat up to call my daughter's dad, it broke all on its own. Within minutes I could feel the full on labor. I can remember being so tired, but I was determined to push my baby out. When my daughter finally came, a wave of emotion came over me. It is something that is hard to explain, but the love I felt in that instant when our eyes first met for the first time was like something I had never felt before, and in that moment, I realized that I was a mom, I was Estrella's mother!


If I were to write a letter to my daughter, to tell her how much she has always meant to me, from the start, I would tell her that she made me a mommy, the mother I am to her and to her younger brothers. That because of her, I had many trials and errors, but that she taught me the most important lesson in life, she taught me the true meaning of unconditional love. I would also tell her that the first night we had together in the hospital, when it was just the two of us, I was in awe. I did not sleep, because all I could do was stare at her, and watch her as she slept. I made her a promise that night that I would always be there for her, and that I would do my best to raise her and to always show her how much I love her. I think in the letter I would let her know, that even though she is 10 years old, from the day she was born, I have always gotten up in the middle of the night to look in on her and watch her as she sleeps.

From the day she was born, I have been in love, and I have enjoyed every minute of it, the good and the bad. I have cherished every smile, every milestone that we reached together, and all of the lessons I have learned along the way. Because on the day baby was born, so was the mother I am today!


Mothers Day is just around the corner, and in honor of Mothers Day, the people from Pampers have partnered up with the people from Feeding America. You can help put diapers on little bottoms by watching the video below, because with every view that the video gets, Pampers will donate 1 diaper, up to 1 million diapers!




Well Pampers would also like to give my readers an amazing prize pack, a "Thanks Baby Prize Pack", which includes a pack of Pampers Diapers and Wipes, a Baby Play Book, a picture frame, and a $75 Target Gift Card to use towards a family photo! Also, be sure to join in on a fun Twitter Party with Pampers on May 8th at 9pm EST! You can RSVP and get more info about the party by going here
