Out of all the worries and concerns I have being a new Mom, I am worried about the most minute details. Since I refuse to window shop, build a registry or even go into a store until I know the gender of the babe (come on March 18 and week 20), I have cleaned out my closets and taken stock of what I already have to wear/use.

In the meantime, I have spent my free time shopping for cute maternity clothes, daydreaming about colors and themes for the nursery and worrying about every little detail of the years to come.

One of my first orders of business? Buying sensible flat or stacked heeled shoes that I can comfortably push the stroller with. Walk while babywearing. Shop for Pampers, and run after baby's first steps. Where do I begin. For the past 15 or so years, my feet have been happy in high heels, platformed sandals, stilettos, and high heeled boots. I love expensive shoes, the kind that no child should ever get his or her grimy hands on. Choo, Louboutin, Manolo. The names of my dreams. What shall they be replaced with? Bass? Scholl? Teva? I shudder to think.

So what I am asking you, my dear readers and friends, is for suggestions for cute, stylish realistic mommy shoes. The kind of shoes that are hip and chic, but will not cause me to break a leg or trip while walking with baby!!

I bought one pair of shoes so far, and they totally rock. They are stylish, comfortable, easy to pull on and off and go with lots of outfits. I am leaning towards this new brand (to me), to be a reliable go-to for cute low-heels and flats.

A new adventure , a new mom....

I know. I KNOW!! It is scary. Me being a mom. What qualifies me to be a mom? Age? Gender? Intelligence? Sense of style? All of the above? None of the above?
Argh. I am 17 weeks pregnant today. Scary.

I am feeling bloated. Bored. And, restless. Part of it is mid-winter blues, which should be remedied soon with a baby-moon to a warm place. We are thinking Mexico. Researching resorts and flights. I have to get out of this place. It is cold. And boring.

Yesterday, we had another buyer come look at the place, so hopefully this house is sold by spring,and we can buy something soon, and get going on a new place for our new family!!

In the meantime, I decided to start a mama blog. After all, I need a place to vent, brag, whine, chat and get suggestions for mommy things.

In no time at all, I will be a MOM , and it scares the heck out of me.
