Giving birth to a human being – a truly unforgettable and special experience for a family. About 18 months ago I experienced this wonder. During pregnancy I did read a lot about the current development of my baby and I did a bit of research on certain topics I was interested in, such as breastfeeding, bonding, how to calm a crying baby etc.
Once we came home and our everyday life started as a small family, I ended up reading way more about anything related to my baby. Be it sleeping, eating, pooping, I used the internet trying to get as much information as possible from women who have been in a similar situation as me. In this time I also talked a lot with my fellow mamas about any issues we had. In retrospect I think there were couple of topics I did not think about, so here’s what you might want to prepare for:
Today I’m a mom since 16 months and 5 days. It is the most intense time I’ve lived so far. My days have never been fuller with to-do’s but also never been more filled with tiny moments of joy. Here’s what I learned in the past months about motherhood:
2019 is already a little bit over a week old and amongst my new year’s resolution to be more conscious about my consumption, I want to be more thankful for my life. “Be the energy that you want to attract” is a good mantra for this. In the past I used to see some of my relationships rather negative and I want to stop judging and nagging about people, I believe with practice one can learn that. Additionally I think that positivity can be contagious, so I hope to catch it and to spread it!
10 months ago today, my baby boy was born and it’s time to sum up some new stuff he taught me over the past months:
Here’s the first post of 2018!
I’m sorry for not keeping up with writing lately. Christmas holidays have been busy and it took me a while to get back to the usual routine with baby Natan.
Now we are looking for a new place to live which is also why a lot of my free time is spent on searching and visiting appartments. Haven’t found the right place yet but I hope we will move by spring. We definitely need a bigger space, we need more room.
