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!
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.
Yes, the day has come again.. Monday. Good morning! It’s sunny and still a bit frosty outside and a new week has begun. My day already started off when the alarm clock rang at 6 am. There was really no point in going back to bed so I stayed up, drank my morning coffee in silence and ate breakfast. After this post I’ll be on my way to buy some DIY things that I want to get ahead of at home. I feel that spring is coming now that February almost is over and I thought it would be time to freshen up at home a little bit. Stay tuned!
Happy Monday, make the most of today!
I’m finally sitting down after cleaning the apartment, making dinner and doing the dishes. Right now I’m watching ‘Valentines Day’ on mute in the background. But I just wanted to stop by and write a few notes. Today is also mothers day here which means a lot of flowers, cakes and presents for all.
I’m gonna go and spend the rest of the day with my valentine. I hope you have a wonderful day wherever you are!
Ok, so it’s the morning again. I said I would post several times yesterday and somehow my feet only found their way to the couch and then my bed between 10 & 11 o’clock. I can’t remember when I fell into bed, barely changing into my pjs. I was so tired, so exhausted. I didn’t even know it. I think this is the first time I’m actually sitting down and just breathing. Listening to the silence around me. And some footsteps in the distance. Today will hopefully be a nice and calm day, where I can check of some things on my o so famous ‘to-do’ list. That list will never end but on the agenda today are only some small things I have to do.
I always say that every new day is a new beginning. A clean slate. A plank piece of white paper waiting to be filled with todays achievements and goals. So today my clean, white slate will be filled with laughter and smiles to the world. With love and commitment towards my job. I will make the best out of today because today is all I have.
If you follow me tumblr @ mylifelizabeth, you know that my birthday was about a week ago. I turned 20, which is surreal for me. God willing I will have another 20 years ahead of me. I cannot start to write all the amazing opportunities I have had growing up, because let’s face it, I am and adult now. I cannot say I have anymore growing up to do in the form from being a child to an adult. Because when you are 20 you are an adult. Even when you turn 18 here you are an adult. But for me, turning 20, is even more so because you are no longer a teen. I’m heading towards 30.. ok, I just scared myself.
Moving on and not thinking about what age I’ve become, I can tell you what generous gifts I got. First of, those brownies on the left are home-made and absolutely delicious. Do you want the recipe? To the right are some roses I got from my mum, and after this birthday I think I will get a lot of flowers on my next birthdays. And to the last picture is the best gift I could ever wish for and never in a million years thought I would get. My family was so generous that they bought me a MacBook Air! It’s surreal even though I’m typing on it right now. I’ve fallen in love with all the Mac products and this is just another addition to my Apple family.
This year was the first year I worked on my birthday but we had a little celebration last Saturday and my family had more surprises up their selves than I thought. We ate good food, cake and I got more presents including flowers. Unfortunately my camera didn’t come to much use, but that is definitely something I want to work on.
Have a great evening.
I was babysitting this furry ball this weekend and I must say, even though I love the little energy bomb she is, I now know that I’m so not ready to handle a dog. She is so sweet and innocent but always needing someone to play with and having all the attention – such a beauty queen. I must say that she was quit scared of our cat. Safe to say there was a little whining from the fur ball and a couple of growls from the boss aka our little sweet cat but as long as they held their distance it went fine.
My brother came out for a visit today and because he doesn’t live so far away now. A perfect way for us to make an effort to see each other more. Everyone acting so busy with their job and studying that you almost forget the people who’ve been around you your whole life. It was really good to see him again, and after a hair cut on the house we made some lunch and went from a long walk with Milli. The night sneaked up on us shortly and after 1,5 hours outside it was time to say goodbye.
My evening is also going to an end because I’m feeling way to tired to stay up. So much planned for tomorrow, but we’ll see if I’ll manage it all. Last day off before I have to go back to work on Tuesday so I’m in no way going to stress.
