Being a first-time mom is a momentous journey as you go through experiencing the first milestones of your child and also that of motherhood. Bossa nova singer Sitti Navarro-Ramirez posts a heart-warming sentiment of her own journey on Instagram.
The first-time mom shares how praying has been a big part of her life this year. All throughout the time when she was still praying for a baby, during the pregnancy itself, and even after delivering her daughter, Sitti has always something to ask guidance for.

My prayer journey this year 🙏🏼: . January: “Father God, if it is your Will, pls grant a child unto us.” . April. A positive pregnancy test: “Thank You Jesus for answering our prayer!” . April-Nov: “Lord, pls protect and grow our baby. We also pray for a safe delivery.” . Nov 4. Lilibubs’ birth: “Thank You Lord for delivering Lilibubs safely!” . Nov 4. A few hours after Lilibubs’ birth, post-emergency CS: “Lord, ang sakit po ☹️” . Nov 5. “Lord, please help me fart.” (First fart I’ve ever prayed for) . Nov 6. “Lord, please help me poop.” (First poop I’ve ever prayed for) . Nov 6 to today, and I don’t know till when: “Lord, please help my nipples deal. Please help us latch well at every feeding.” (First time to ever pray for my mammary glands) . Nov 7. “Lord, please take away Lilibubs’ jaundice so we can go home.” . Nov 8. “Thank You, Lord. We are home.” . Onwards from the day she was born: “Lord, please teach us how to parent. Please continue to grow Lilibubs and keep her in good health. I pray for the strength and grace needed to take care of her everyday.” . Praying about everything every step of the way. Nakakawindang maging first-time-mom! How I wish I can decode all her cries and the reason for every fuss.. I have to say though, that burping and skin-to-skin times are the best, coz that’s when she rewards us with her smiles, like this one from this morning. 💕 . To all the first-time-mommas, kaya natin ‘to! 🙌🏽👊🏽
Sitti has been married to entrepreneur Joey Ramirez since 2015 and their daughter Issiah Dañelle was born last November 4. Everything is new territory for the first-time parents and Sitti still continues to ask for guidance. “Praying about everything every step of the way. Nakakawindang maging first-time-mom! How I wish I can decode all her cries and the reason for every fuss.” she says.
