Blog: Time flies. Nina's First Dentist Visit 😁

Manny Becerra as a child

December 2017

Time sure does fly. Seems like yesterday, I was looking at Nina through a sonogram, followed by holding her in my arms, rocking her to sleep, and getting her ready for her first peditrician appointment — that was over 2-years ago!

The other day, I took Nina to her first dentist appointment. She was a champ.

Queso (Cheese)! 😁

Everyday, I appreciate and cherish the time and connectedness that my daughter and I have with one another: her smile and laugh bring me immense joy. I look forward to her having the opportunities to share her smile and laugh with the wider world throughout her life.
