¡Hola! It's So Nice to Meet You

I’m so excited to be sharing my motherhood journey with you here on Disney Baby. I thought I’d take a quick second to introduce myself. My name is Carmen Ordonez, I’m 30 years old and live in sunny Miami, Florida. My parents are from Colombia. I work as an on-air style expert, spokesperson and run my own fashion blog, Viva Fashion, which I started in 2008. Four years after it launched, I was able to quit my full-time job in Public Relations to run it full-time.

I’ve been married to my husband, Fernando, for seven years. In 2012, we decided it was time to expand our wolf pack (as he calls it) and started trying to get pregnant in April of 2012—one month later we were blessed with the news that we were expecting a baby boy! On January 6, 2013 we welcomed our first son, Andres Sebastian Ordonez.  These past 16 months have been nothing short of amazing it’s hard to put into words (with its dose of crazy days of course).  Everyone tells you to enjoy it because it goes by so quick—and it sure does. My once teeny, tiny infant is now a little toddler that loves to climb and is so active–my gosh nobody really tells you how quick those little toddler feet can move.

He has been the biggest blessing and I’m sure all you moms out there might agree, it’s hard to imagine your life before them. I’m so excited to share this space in the internet with you and talk about all things parenting and being a mommy (and raising a Spanglish baby too!)

Now my question to you:

How do I get those darn dishes to stop piling up in the sink–help!
