I’d say there’s no formula on how you can keep cool and chill in breastfeeding because it all depends on you and your baby. Hello there wonderful people!

I’ve been wanting to write about my “first time mom” journey but you know I don’t hold my time anymore. It all depends on my little one’s mood. He’s been good lately and so the weather so most of the time I’d rather stay outside push the stroller and get some doze of vitamin D for the beginning of spring.

Even before I got pregnant I already knew I will breastfeed my baby. As every mother wants only the best for her child. I am so into it and I know I can do it. Looks so easy, right? Yes, it is! until I experienced it by myself. No, it’s not that easy at first? It was hard to begin with.

The night my son was born the hospital staffs immediately handed him to me to breastfeed. I felt like this is easy. I did my assignment after all. I read a lot about it, did my own research (a lot) so this is nothing. Until I am in the actual situation.Β  You know you can read everything you want up to the last note about your research but in the end the actual practice is very different. I thought breastfeeding is just “a walk in the park”, all you have to do is to put him/her in your breast and viola! you are feeding your baby. Unfortunately, that’s not my case. Of course when the baby was born he doesn’t know anything like how to latch. He doesn’t know where is your nipple and this also goes to the mother believe me what you have read and researched for like 9 months or more will be nothing in actual situation. Continue reading

LENTEN THOUGHTS

Hello beautiful people and hello beautiful planet!

Finally, spring has sprung. I so love it when the weather is changing especially the coming of spring because it signifies happy days outside. Beach, sun and sand soon. Summer is not that far though the blooming flowers of spring is beautiful in the eye. And it also means that whatever situation you are in right now it will not be forever and it will surely change in a couple of time. So if you are in a bad situation remember that no storm last forever and ifΒ  you are in a good one, enjoy while it last. Carpe Diem!

It’s Lenten season and I got some thoughts and reflections lately. I am not perfect and in fact I am very far from that but I always try to be good especially I am a mother to a wonderful baby boy.

I am not a very religious person but I do pray, a lot. I talk and write to God. Going to church everyday doesn’t mean you are nice if your soul is pure of anger and hatred. Praying is useless if you are hating. Continue reading

Hello beautiful people! This is the first time I’m blogging about mommyhood if that word really exist. I want to call it mommyhood that is everything about mommy duties and everything in between.

Before our little one arrive we’ve been scouting and researching about the things to buy. The first concern is how he will sleep after he came home from the hospital. He can’t sleep with us as he is too fragile. He can’t be too far away because he needs to be feed every two hours. It is a tough job researching from one product to another because most products promised good quality. Of course when it comes to your baby you only want the best. But still you have to be careful in buying considering each quality a point to review and think about. Continue reading

DEUX MILLE SEIZE 2016

Hello beautiful people! This is quite long overdue for the new year but I hope everyone had a great new year, a great start we all wanted to be.

I have been pre-occupied by my motherhood duties so please pardon me for not blogging for a while. I am squeezing my time in between when my little one is having his nap time.

I have so much to thankful for 2015. It gave me life’s most wonderful blessing, having a baby. I feel like I am complete the day I held him in my arms. I am overjoyed with happiness. Motherhood is a very tiring job as it is a 24/7 job but I can say that it is the most rewarding and worth all the sleepless nights and fatigues. With just a smile from your little one your heart melts. Sorry, I cannot find more superlatives to describe how happy it is to be a mother but I know mothers especially new moms can relate to me.

So, as I am a new mom, I have some thoughts about how to bring 2016 more meaningful and fruitful for me. Life is not about me, my husband and our surroundings anymore. We have now a little boy to think about all the time. To teach him good values and think of his future. Wow! Life is truly a blessing.

I am not that kind of person who’s really into new year resolutions and write them but some thoughts popped up my mind when the new year is changing. I hope I can be a good influence to everyone and I am trying not to just list it here but PUSH myself to do it. No excuses!

ON THE NINTH DAY OF CHRISTMAS

On the ninth day of Christmas, excitement and emotions fills my heart. I am like a kid always excited for Christmas but it dawned into me that I am away from the usual Christmas I grew up with. I am away from my family and friends.

On the positive side, I have my own family now and this is all that matters. I treasure my son’s first Christmas and get so excited about it.

 

Love on Holidays,

Anne
