When most parents think of their kid’s first year they think of pretty normal milestones: first smile, first words, first steps, first birthday. Most wouldn’t include first passport.
It was very important (especially to her Cuban abuela) that Rafa be American. In fact, when we first told my mom about pregnantly moving abroad her first question was whether or not our baby would be an American citizen. So here, mom, without further ado is her passport and Consular Report of Birth Abroad.
Interesting side note: apparently baby passport pictures are not easy to take. Her original picture (left) made her look like a mean elf. Her accepted passport picture (right) makes her look mad tough. Shes all, “What?! I dare you to say something.”
