One week ago now

My day started off like any other day. No pancakes or coffee in bed even though that’s the ultimate dream. I went on doing some housework and making dinner for my guests that evening.


I was greeted with flowers and a basked full of fruit. At 6pm we started eating my homemade meatballs, chicken with rise and potato salad. Everything tastes twice as good when you know how much effort you put in to it.

We continued on playing uno, heads up and ping pong. And didn’t end up saying good night before 10.30 pm. It was a lovely evening spent with wonderful people.

6 months ago

I can’t believe it’s been half a year
Time flied by like a night in disguise
One second ago I held you close
Two little feet, ten little toes
First a smile, then a laugh
Now six months later you’re rolling around
Finding your hands to your toys
Soon you’ll be able to walk and talk
While you’re growing up, we’re growing old
Stop time a little so we can be with you even more
There is no rush, so I’ll stop searching for the next milestone
And enjoy the time with our firstborn child

From spring to snow

Today was a cold and gray day. Unlike yesterday when the sun was shinning and the flowers still bloomed. What a different a day can make. Now the sidewalk is covered with snow and there is yet again a cold breeze outside. It may go without saying but we stayed inside today. Even though I desperately need to make a trip to the grocery market because our fridge is running empty soon. Other than staying inside today I managed to clean a little, take an afternoon nap and start a new sewing project. Hopefully I’ll be able to share the process and result with you soon. I’ll be heading off to bed in less than twenty minutes so I’ll say goodnight now.

A good day

It’s been a long day and I can’t wait to fall into bed and have a good nights sleep, or at least a couple of hours before I have to wake up again and feed the little one.


Yesterday was filled with tears and a lot of comfort after a painful vaccine shot. The little one got a fever too which didn’t make things any better. Luckily a lot of sleep and food helped with the problem. It was a tough decision to make whether or not to go through with the vaccine program. In the end we decided on one shot which we felt was more than enough for that little body.

Today on the other hand was much better. Baby was back to normal with lots of smiles and talks. We enjoyed ourself out in the sun and even took a trip to our local shopping center. With a new toy and some things for myself it’s safe to say we had a good day all together.

Friday

It’s finally Friday, the best day of the week! Even though it’s Friday for me almost every day, it’s nice to spend some quality time with the rest of the family when the weekend finally arrives. The little one has gotten a new toy and was wide awake until a minute ago. I’ll sneak into the bedroom in a couple of minutes, and figures crossed, also get some sleep. The last couple of nights have been rough and not getting a decent amount of sleep in one go is exhausting for the body. But I haven’t planned anything major today and I defiantly need a leisure day where I have absolutely nothing planned.

Relax

One problem that I have is that I don’t know how to relax. Somehow I have it in my brain that I always have to do something. I can’t just take a breather. And if I do take a minute or two to relax.. and just be, before I know it I’ll be thinking about the next thing I feel I have to do. But that’s the thing, I don’t really have anything I have to do. I guess it’s just all in my head and that’s something I have to work on. Well, now that the little one is sleeping  I have to try and sprint to the shower and freshen up a little. Who knows when the next feeding session will arrive or the next diaper change will occur. Little things like brushing your teeth suddenly get forgotten and you get used to seeing yourself in sweatpants with no make-up on. Wish me luck.
