Baby, baby, baby....


It's been so long since I last posted, and I am so sorry about that. Blogging makes me feel closer to the world and I have honestly missed it. We've gone a long way since our last post in May, when my baby boy Albert, was three months old. Between thousands of poopy diapers, boogies, drool and soooo many sleepless nights, I've reached a point into this astonishing experience called motherhood, when I simply cannot recognize myself anymore. I have an endless amount of patience, I love all babies and toddlers, even those bratty, annoying ones kicking and screaming in the supermarkets, I can sing for hours and more if the baby needs to be put to sleep, and, as a general idea, I have become another woman.
I have no more spare time. Sometimes I don't shave my legs, but what am I talking about? Grooming myself has become a luxury. I barely find a moment to pee. He has no mercy, really. I have to feed him with my legs crossed.
In a few days he'll be 9 months old and we are very thrilled that he has already decided to get up and stand on his two little feet. he's been doing that for a few weeks now and he is also calling me "Mmmma-mmma" which has finally made me pee my pants.
In conclusion, I have never thought I could ever love someone so much and so completely....Someone said once that, being a mom is like living your whole life with your heart beating outside your body....and oh God, so much truth in that. Sending hugs to all my blogging friends, love you guys so much. Thank you for reading me.

Petronella, your baby is adorable... motherhood goes by so quickly... they grow at an astonishing rate. It's incredible how much you can love another being. I remember the days of no time for myself... no biggie... raising our children are the best.

I'm not writing at the moment and not really reading but I saw you posted so I didn't want to miss you. I'll be back to reading soon and I hope writing again... I have a lot going on...

I have missed you, love you ♡♡♡

Seeing that little Albert and his gorgeous blue eyes put a big smile on my face. Petronella, he is so beautiful. Just remember that he loves you just as much as you love him. You're his whole world and he doesn't care if your legs are shaved or your hair is done!! Unconditional love! That's what it's all about. So nice to hear from you. XX

He is so beautiful, and I love how you noticed how much you have changed since having a baby.
Funny how becoming a mother can change a person so much. I am so happy for you.

Dear friend,

I am so happy for you.
I was mother to 36 years and wanted it as a dream come true.
Your beautiful Albert is the cutest boy I know!
I am thrilled to read every experience reported by you.
If it was easy, less far, sure I would have already sent many gifts for him.
I love you both.

Greetings.

I loved reading this. There's no experience like motherhood. I'm so glad you're enjoying every moment you can. They grow up so fast, and the journey keeps changing. Congrats on such a beautiful little boy!

Welcome back! He is precious - what a beautiful baby. I am so happy for you! Sounds like such an awesome experience. Hopefully, I'll know what that feels like someday. We've missed you but I also believe that being in the present and experiencing what is near is such a blessing. Hope to hear more from you about your new adventure. xoxo, Beautiful Lady!

Congratulations on your success!

I remember where I used to work I grew from the new parent to the older experienced parent with teenagers etc. (Actually as of yesterday both mine are now in their 20s! - I feel so old). One of the younger to be a new parent came to me and said "You don't say much about what being a parent is like. Everyone else has loads to say." I explained my experience was whatever anyone said was pointless, only once the baby arrives do you really understand. I said "Come back in a few weeks/months after it arrives. I tell you now you won't remember what it was like before they came. Then we can talk". Some months later he arrived at my door and said "You're the only one that said the truth. Can I ask some advice?"

He's so cute! I remember when my little rascal was at that age!! Now I wish I can go back to those moments.. But there's something charming and worth looking forward to and at the same time challenging in every stage of a child's life the nicest thing of it all is, we get to experience and witness it ourselves first hand! :)
