Jessica Alba: Life as a Mom Moves 'So Fast'

Jessica Alba‘s life has been marked by change since welcoming daughter Honor Marie, 13 months, and now the changes are coming more quickly than ever. “Life moves so fast as a new mom,” she notes in the August/September issue of Fit Pregnancy magazine. “Sometimes I wish time would slow down.”

Not to mention Honor, who is “so mobile” now Jessica has had to become a “constant watchdog.” Not that she’d change a thing! Jessica, 28, adds,

“Every milestone is memorable, from the numerous wardrobe changes in her first five months due to her explosive diarrhea to the first time she said, ‘Mama.'”

If she has any advice for other first-time moms, it would be to trust your instincts — and don’t overstep. “What works for you may not work for others and vice versa,” she elaborates. “I have also found that it’s more useful to stop and listen than to try and always have the answers.”

Honor is Jessica’s daughter with husband Cash Warren.

What a precious picture of little Honor. She is one of the most beautiful little girls. I really love Jessica, she seems very down to earth and sounds like a very good mom.

She looks adorable here but I always cringe a little when celeb parents put things in print that will be around forever and have the potential for embarrassment later in life…

Honor is such a cute kid!!!! She looks like a joy to be around.

brannon- Come on, what parent DOESN’T tell embarassing stories about their child? I mean, I think just about everyone has a story to tell about how their parents just HAD to tell an embarassing story about them at a family reunion or something!🙂
