Anjie turned 3 weeks this today! Yipppeeee! From next week we can actually start counting in months, but I think I’ll stick with the week count till about 2-3 months
Anjie’s getting darker in the skin complexion department, meaning she’s once again tilting towards her dad in terms of looks! But it’s still early days so we’ll see! Some people see her pictures and insist she looks like my mum (I’ve been told I’m a darker version of my mum as well) so its just interesting to see which way she continues to swing in the looks department!
This week Anjie turned two weeks! I’m not going to say it has been fun all the way cos it hasn’t but like someone rightly put it, parenthood is hard, but then you come across those moments which make it absolutely worth it, like when she smiles in her sleep (she’s doing that now, priceless! Can’t wait for the proper smile though!)
I can’t deny the fact that the sleepless nights are getting to me. It’s worst in the early hours of the morning between 5am-7am, at that time I’m just exhausted and want to sleep! The good new is that Anjie recently picked up this pattern which I hope she sticks with for a bit. She falls asleep around 8-9pm after a major feed and sleeps till 2-2.30am! Once she sleeps like that I try to hit the bed around 10pm myself cos she’s with grandma at this time.
In Yoruba tradition we have a naming ceremony for a new born baby on the 8th day of the baby’s birth. So technically a name isn’t given until the ceremony which means I jumped the gun in saying the name of my baby girl but I couldn’t help it! I love the names we came up with and just couldn’t wait. Anjie’s naming ceremony was on the 28th of December…
Now Abby thought this was pretty cheesy but I couldn’t care! I’m a very very proud mummy so I’m going to show my baby to the world even if it’s with a cheesy song! Lol… And do you know why? It’s what mothers do!
Here’s a short collection of my little angel since she was born…
And here’s wishing you all a very prosperous 2012! God bless…
So this time last week I had just come out of labour and was getting used to my baby Anjie – today, I’m still settling in and adjusting to motherhood! There’s absolutely no rush to adjust especially as these are the early days. So really what has happened since we got home?
