Well, almost! Can’t believe Junior will be 5 months next week!
My maternity leave is slowly coming to an end… Mixed feelings really. I miss going to work (not that I’m a morning person though), tasking my brain and knowing that I’m working towards taking my career to the next level, that’s exciting for me so I’m looking forward to that! But also knowing that very soon my baby boy will be crawling and running everywhere and my cuddle time will be slashed in half… well, I don’t want to think about it!
Anyway, what has been going on here? For one thing, my folks are in town!!! Yipppeeeeee!
Life has a funny way of throwing interesting things at you when it comes to being a parent! Last night was one of those days… Hubby and I probably only slept for about 4 hours due to this ‘child hallucination’ business… I’m just praying we’ve seen the last of this thing because I don’t want to go through it again!
So what happened?
When I had my maternity photoshoot I signed up for two sessions, a before and after session if you like. We were supposed to have those really early baby shoots where the baby is asleep and placed in all kind of crazy cute sleeping positions but what with family, colic and baby rash it got pushed to the back seat. 4 months later we finally got around to baby shoot and the pictures are well worth it!
It’s really going to be hard to decide which will be enlarged in the near future! But here are some of my favourites from the day!
Thanks to Bee from BforBetula for nominating me to share a bit about myself! I’ve actually been meaning to write something like on my about me page so why not just kill two birds with one stone right? :)
So here goes nothing… Goodness, where do I start!
After we had Aj about 10 months after getting married we knew we wanted a break – at least 3-4 years gap before we’d try again. We also both knew we would love a boy, one of each to complete our family but the ‘plan’ was to stop at two either way. In between the 3 year gap I stumbled upon an article on how to have a baby boy… Interesting, I thought!
Let’s just say I read it thoroughly, researched some more then we ‘practised’ it and the rest as they say is history…
I like to think of myself as a nice person (haha) so I thought I’d share what we did! Obviously, I feel I have to put a disclosure here and state I am not a medical practitioner and there are no guarantees on whether it’ll work or not but what have you got to lose, right…? (more…)
When we decided to try for Junior hubby and I
promised said we won’t buy much baby items aside from basics like clothing and nappies since this was our second time around, that went out the window fast! Don’t get me wrong, we definitely weren’t going to buy a new travel system or a baby monitor again but let’s just say some other things caught our eyes, so in no particular here are three of my favourite baby best buys…
Junior turns 12 weeks this week and I feel I need to just get it out there, I am truly thankful for having a good baby. I feel it’s only right I should say this now so that if my sweet baby changes overnight I can look back on happy posts like this and know I had it good at one time and hopefully I’d see such days again! :) (more…)
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 :)
