Almost two and one baby

I am a Cavitenã living here in Geneva, Switzerland. It has been almost two years since I have left the Philippines and my life has gotten into a new level now--I am married and have a 7 month old baby girl. This new experience called family life is so exciting and at the same time somewhat overwhelming. Being a first time Nanay, I have listened to a lot of advice from well meaning family and friends. I have scoured the flea market and the thrift shops for books on babies and parenting and I am still learning. I have found out that having someone from a different cultural background takes a lot of understanding, communication and acceptance on each other's part. This is my own observation and I am not talking about other people's experience. This is my story...
