Junior turned two months over the weekend and I’m thankful to say we seem to be coming to the end of the battle with colic! Now I just pray it stays that way! But now we have another battle on our hands, an old adversary – baby rash or very dry skin :(. Just when I thought we had avoided it! (more…)
A lot has been going on around here, the major one being colic… The dreaded colic attack!
Aj never had colic so I only heard about it but never really experienced it, thankfully I had been warned! Based on the little I’ve seen with it, I have to agree, colic is not a nice thing for a child to go through…
Thank you guys for nominating my blog for Best Parenting or Family Blog in the 2014 Nigerian Blog Awards! It really means a lot to me :)
Where do I start! I can’t believe Junior is a month old already! Don’t get me wrong, I have counted each and every single day yet here we are at one month already! It’s been quite the ride, can’t say I’ve enjoyed every single bit of it but it’s been worth it. But I have to say that this young man deceived me! He has changed from his 10 day old self…
We had his naming ceremony last week and he came out with 14 names as is tradition! Aj had about the same so it’s no surprise! Since he was named after his grandpa AND he came out looking a lot like his daddy I’ve decided to name him Junior on my blog! So that’s where the name ‘Junior’ comes from… We’ll see if he grows up looking like his dad though!
I woke up at about 3.30am on the 19th of February after scheduling this post around 12 midnight earlier that day thinking I was feeling different. For the first time I was having proper contractions with period like cramps and not just Braxton hicks contractions. They seemed relatively far apart so I didn’t take it seriously.
By about 4am i realised this could be the real deal so I got out my Full term app and started monitoring the contractions. Next, I got on my birthing ball and started bouncing away. Initially the contractions were about 9-12 mins apart so I just continued bouncing while everyone slept. I wanted to be certain before I started waking anyone up. (more…)
Our beautiful baby boy made an amazing appearance yesterday morning at 8.25am weighing 3.93kg (8.10lbs)… We are all back home doing great!
If you’re wondering why I published the previous post around 9am and this young man arrived earlier that day that would be due to the joys of scheduling post! They can be evil!
I’ll be sharing the amazing birth story as soon as I’ve gotten my act together!
Thank you all for your prayers and well wishes they really worked and I appreciate each and everyone of you!!
I realise now that Aj spoilt me…
I had given birth by this time so it’s quite strange to find I’m still pregnant at 40 + 5 weeks. All things considered, it’s still ‘early’ days as I’ve still got at least 5 – 7 days to go before I can get induced but it really does seem odd as I always thought the second and subsequent babies would come earlier and quicker – I stand corrected!
I should know better really…
Happy Valentine’s Day! Hope you all had/are having a lovely time with family and friends.
Thought I’ll share what I’m still praying might be my last bump shoot for this pregnancy.
