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.

2 months ago

I was missing something in my life and exactly two months ago I got it. I was missing a piece of me which I never realized before I had you in my life. Now I know that I will always have a piece of me in this world, even when I’m gone. You came into this world and change my life. Taught me things I didn’t know before. And even though it’s a vague memory now I want to remember your arrival as long as possible.

Whenever people talked about childbirth I understood that it was painful, but nothing can prepare you for the amount of pain you go through. Even I have forgotten it a little bit by now. I had to mentally prepare myself for the process but in the end that helped a great deal.


3 things I never knew

  • Babies have exceptional strong jaws something I never knew before I started breastfeeding.
  • A handful of wet diapers a day is great, but not to be confused with number two, something I always though. But number two once a day is more then enough for a little baby.
  • While I knew childbirth would be painful I always thought I would be able to breath slow through the contractions. That was not the case and I ended up with extremely dry lips because I was breathing so fast.

Have a beautiful Sunday!
