Playing a bit of catch up here, as I’ve not had time to edit and post photos in a while!
Day 28 – Toothless
The top tip I have for new moms is this: photograph and video everything! The first few weeks pass in such a blur and they change so fast. My little girl is teething and soon these little toothless gums will be no more. Somehow that makes me a little bit sad.
Day 29 – Little Girl
Nothing more to say about that really – just that she’s so darn cute. Still can’t believe we made her.
Day 30 – House Work
Some days you just gotta bite the bullet and do the house work! Ameli wouldn’t be put down, so I did what our cleaner in South Africa used to do with her baby – strapped her to my back! She loved it and fell asleep really quickly. I guess housework is just that dull, no matter how old you are!
These stars adorn the shower screen for Ameli to look at in the bath. Excuse the limescale! I didn’t clean that yesterday!
We’ve been trying to go out for walks just to get out of the house, have a bit of exercise and it helps to tire Ameli out a little. There’s not much around where I live as far as things to look at, but there are a few parks so we went for a walk in one of them. It was a dull day, but these little flowers gave me hope!
Day 33 – Here to Stay
Another trip to the park today, and it was so cold and miserable, I couldn’t help feeling a little sorry for myself. I wasn’t built for these long cold days. Kind of feel like winter’s here to stay.
Day 34 – Reflecting
A bit of a heteronym, really. This is the view from my house. It’s also the view of the hospital where I was admitted last year March when I was desperately ill and pregnant. Walking out the house with my daughter today, the sun shone on the hospital and the window was open in the unit I was in. It made me hug her more closely, and appreciate that we both made it through.
