Time flies, especially for us parents. Our children are our constant reminders that time moves at lightning speed so we shouldn’t dare blink. I remember how a mommy friend told me this when I had just given birth, and at that time I was in the thick of it all (changing diapers, breastfeeding and swaying Tristan to sleep 5x a day) so it was very hard for me to believe that my little boy would grow up quickly. I thought that what she said didn’t apply to me, and that my days would continue to crawl at snail pace. At that point I couldn’t see how quickly Tristan was developing, as I was still sleep-deprived and tired.
Two years and five months into motherhood, I am now a believer. My little boy Tristan is running, jumping, talking, eating and deciding on his own. It is crazy to think he was once a helpless little baby who couldn’t even roll over, stand or talk! So many mini milestones have happened, which has been by far an incredible journey for my little family. From Tristan’s first time to crawl, walk, laugh, talk and play–we couldn’t help but be amazed at how quickly our boy is developing as time goes by. From a baby he has turned into a toddler, and now he is a little boy, who is so active and inquisitive, stubborn and sweet, and always eager to learn and travel. He is the perfect combination of Carlos and I, and it is hard to believe that we made such an cool person.
Looking back, one brand has been constant throughout Tristan’s milestones and that is Belo Baby. I remember how this new baby brand (it wasn’t even in the market yet) had approached me and Tristan to do a digital campaign for them two years ago. My little guy was only four months old then, so I requested to try the product first before saying yes since it was still a new brand. Needless to say, it passed with flying colors and my family and I continue to use it to this day. It has been such a happy partnership, as I was a clueless first-time mom trying to find the best brand that would work for my little boy. And Belo Baby, on the other hand, is a local baby brand that is made with love for meticulous moms. And by love, I mean, it made from honest-to-goodness ingredients that is pure and safe for baby’s skin and without the scary, harmful chemicals that would be usually found in our beauty and bath products. All Belo Baby needed was for moms to know we had an amazing, affordable alternative for our babies!
I mean, just look at how much our babies have grown! Patty Laurel-Filart, Nicole Hernandez-de los Angeles and I were the brand’s first endorsers (along with the cutest little baby girl, ever–Scarlet Snow Belo), and that included our little ones Theo, Alonzo, Luis, and Tristan. They were such tiny babies when we began this campaign, and now they are little boys! And just like our boys, the Belo Baby brand has grown exponentially to include more products for our babies! What a thrill it has been to see our boys and the brand grow and develop into what it is–and I can help but expect more!
From what Belo Baby started with: our favorites Belo Baby Hair & Body Wash, Belo Baby Bar Soap and Belo Baby Face & Body Lotion, the brand now has Belo Baby Baby Cologne in 3 yummy flavors, Belo Baby Hand Sanitizers and Belo Baby Talc-Free Powder. And from what I have been told, there is more amazing things to watch out for next year. I’ll surely be blogging, Instagram-ming and tweeting about it in the months to come.
Motherhood has been one rollercoaster of a ride, and I wouldn’t trade it for anything in the world. Tristan has brought so much joy and love into our lives, I cant even remember what life was like before he arrived. So while it’s true that time flies, we must also remember to cherish every moment, every milestone and every hug. And at the same time look forward to a bright future ahead.
As Belo Baby moms, we are excited to see what the future has in store for our babies and for this brand. Hold on tight, 2018 is arriving soon and there is so much the year has in store for us.
