We went to our first mama baby yoga class. Lukas was a little mini man compared to the others. But he was awesome. Basically it’s not really yoga, more stretches for a mama body carrying a baby around everywhere. Needed!
Look how tiny he is chillin out on the floor…
And after that thrilling morning I went to bookclub with these lovely ladies. Yes! Two activities in one day. See me rollin!
We read the beautifully written Girl, woman, other by Bernadine Evaris. Or, they read, I only got through 30%. Not blaming the book, blaming life and baby and Netflix.
Tried to take a cute picture in the morning.
There is a reason I call him my little fatsaurus…
Cheers Sita… but I do agree, I think he looks a bit like me in that pic. Must be the double chin action.
In other news I cut my hair. Guess I’m finally grown up because didn’t get princess hair. An era finally reaching its end.
And that’s it folks. It’s early morning. Fam is sleeping. Today Lukas and me are joining George working in Kensington. Exciting times.
Trying to do some light exercises at home today. I got 15 min in. Let’s agree that between baby and dog that’s pretty impressive.
He was happy playing away at the mat while W was hovering behind ass hoping this was some new game for him. Sorry buddy.
We are all getting used to the new addition. Even Woolly has accepted his fate.
Even matching with his lil bro.
My awesome family!
We all went a bit stir crazy at home yesterday. L was moaning because stomach pains and G and me were a bit snappy and tired. Still loving this life but some days are easier than others…
It’s a good thing I love him with all my heart. And that I can do things like get my hair done (tomorrow) and bookclub (Wednesday) to remember I’m a normal human being. Because I am. Somewhere deep inside.
Look at that little Popeye arm. Eat your mama milk and formula and you’ll get big and strong. He’s already pretty strong so now we are working on fat. I want croissant legs with proper folds.
But for now we sleep after all that hard work of keeping mama company through her yoga.
Early Saturday morning. He is sleeping on my chest and G and W are still in bed. I don’t mind the lack of sleep, this is such a special moment.
I’m finding having a newborn easier than I thought. I mean, it’s not that it’s all song and dance but I’m loving my little man and I’m not struggling that much with lack of sleep (with that said, I get around 5h a night and a lot of mums get way less than that).
He’s a fairly easy baby and since we decided on stopping the boob both him and me are soo much happier. A boob free life for everyone! And he is properly smiling now and happy to play.
Yes, I love getting to know my son and now that we are better at leaving the house every day I don’t struggle with sitting on the sofa all the time. I even have time to read my bookclub book now that I’m not trying to breastfeed all the time.
So we chill and play and walk and get to know each other. My little happy guy who loves his gym, windows and lamps plus his parents smiles.
George is away and we are busy practicing tummy time. The little guy hates it and just rolls around on his back. Every time. I don’t think that’s the point but at least he’s practicing his rolling. Go Bulgarian mountain warrior!
We are finally getting some kind of normal life. On Tuesday we met Eric for lunch and then the NCT girls and yesterday we had lunch with Linnea and Maja
It’s awesome having some other mums to hang out for the simple fact that they are on the same timelines. Early lunches that easily take two hours since midway you have to feed the bubba.
Other awesome things that happen when you have a baby is that you step in a poo nappy. Well, one of us were happy about it at least. Look at that smug face…
We ( I say we because Lukas is definitely part of that decision) have also decided to stop breastfeeding. He hates it and it takes forever and makes us both miserable.
So for now I pump and do formula and then eventually switch over to only formula. I’m sure he’ll be a happy bunny either way.
He’s got all his mamas and papas love and that is all that matters.
It’s 4.30 am and we’ve been up since 3. I’m trying to be really boring so that he gets that it’s sleepy time but he’s so damn cute.
I’m losing the battle…blogging is my last resort.
George was amazing and took Lukas the night before. Unfortunately L wanted to make sure it was a proper gift and didn’t sleep from 2 so I woke up to a George at his wits end. He was ready to throw the baby in the wall 🙂
So we just chilled out before getting ready for dinner and drinks in East.
Having a lovely day today. George is giving me a bit of a pre birthday so this morning he left with dog and baby and gave me a lie in. Glorious, glorious lie in.
I sleep quite a lot and I’m definitely not complaining but since I sleep next to Lukas I’m always alert, even when sleeping. So it’s something to say for that totally dead sleep when no one is around.
After that me time I met them in Queens head for lunch.
To give context. When I was little my dad always gave me these for my bday. I hated all things pink and heart shaped but I loved this box of candy. But I grew older and moved away and my dad stopped buying them.
So to see this from Lukas made me cry. So incredibly sweet to start the tradition again this way. Plus very impressed with Lukas organising this with granddad.
I’m feeling all emotional and filled with love at the moment. Between George’s sweetness, this from dad and mum and my girls coming to London in April I feel surrounded by love and amazing people. I’m so very spoiled.
It’s a storm raging outside. We are snuggled up at home. George took both the night feeds so he is sleeping and me and little man are chilling on the sofa.
It’s a slow life. Time just pass. I do very little and at first I struggled with that. But now I’m accepting the fact that my job right now is to grow and nurture this amazing little human. I’m literally getting paid to do this.
So it’s all about him. We eat and sleep. But we also play and sing songs and get to know each other. Bonding with him and in our family.
We are awesome together. George and I help each other out and we both want the world for our boy while being pretty chilled out. We both do equal amount of the work when he is home and Lukas is bonding as much with his dad as his mum.
It’s a pretty amazing life with an amazing little human.
