What are your favorite meals to cook? What dishes do you look forward to making for your baby?
My favorite meals will always include pasta - delicious, comforting, easy to make. I haven't done that much research into how to feed my baby food yet, I'm still focusing on learning about breast feeding!
What are your favorite local markets to buy fresh organic produce?
I live in Fort Greene and there is a wonderful farmer's market around the corner from my house on Dekalb every Saturday. I don't spend much time in the Hamptons (I am a Bellportian), so not very familiar with the markets out there, though I'm sure they're beautiful!
What values do you hope to instill in your baby, now that you will be a new mama?
I want to teach my child to be kind and thoughtful and also that he can do and achieve anything that he puts his heart and mind to.
What are you most afraid of with regards to your newest role as a mother? Reversely, what are you most excited for?
I'm not afraid of anything, I just hope we are able to provide all the opportunities that my parents and family gave to me. I'm excited to meet this little person and watch them grow and develop a relationship of their own with the world.
What are your go-to shops for decorating your nursery?
I haven't even thought about nursery decorating yet (I'm just 5 months pregnant). I hope this does not reflect on my maternal instincts!
What are your goals for the upcoming year, both with family and work?
To be healthy and give birth to a healthy baby. To take care of myself once he is here so I can be the best possible mamma for him. To continue to focus on my relationship with my boyfriend, so we are a solid, loving, united team. To be disciplined about raising the baby in a bilingual home (English and Italian). To develop Impatient Foodie further and perhaps even launch Impatient Mommy and so much more!
