Surprise!!

18 weeks pregnant

Some of you might have noticed that my blog has been dead for over two months…Some of you might have stayed awake at night wondering what’s going on. Well no need to wonder anymore as I have finally decided that it’s time to reveal the reason for my absence: I’m pregnant! 

Raising A Princess

Posted on

It hit me today that I’m raising a little woman – or judging by these photos I snapped secretly today (yup, she was so into her performance that she didn’t even notice me) we might have a little princess on our hands. I mean seriously, Lana just turned two and she’s already into Frozen and trying to sing along to ‘Let it go’! (I’m blaming aunty JoJo who bought her an Elsa dress for her birthday haha.) But I have to say it is really damn cute when a 2 year old is copying Elsa in the Let it Go music video – my heart almost melted. So here you go, a silent performance by princess Lana!

2 Years of Being a Mum

Posted on

My wee crazy-haired frog/ballerina turns two today. Two years have gone by so quickly that I’m worried I’ll wake up one day to Lana being 20 and feeling like she was two only yesterday. Lana is such an explorer that I’m also worried she’ll do what I did and end up living somewhere far away from me when she’s older…I want her to grow up but at the same time I want her to be my little baby girl and stay with me. Always! 

The End of an Era

Posted on

Three weeks ago I finally decided it was time to stop breastfeeding. I never thought I would breastfeed for so long, but it became clear to me when Lana was 12 months that it was an unrealistic plan to stop then. Instead I kept going for another 9 months – and all I can say is well done me!!

My Frog is 18 Months Old!

Posted on

Today my little frog is 1,5 year old! Somehow going from a year to a year and a half has gone a lot slower than what Lana’s first year went. Maybe because there hasn’t been huge sudden steps in terms of development, such as crawling, walking, weaning and the first words were. But I don’t mind it going slowly as I don’t really want my little girl to grow up too fast! (Although I impatiently wish she’d start talking more already!)

A 15-Month Update

Posted on

I realised the other day that I haven’t written a Lana-update for ages so one is definitely due. She just turned 15 months, which sometimes feels like such a lot and sometimes like so little. Sometimes I think she looks huge and sometimes she looks like a wee baby. One thing is for sure though, she’s perfect! 

Happy 1st Birthday Lana!

A year has gone by since our little frog was born and changed our lives forever. Every day since then has been amazing and it just keeps getting better. There are no words really to explain how much I love my little girl and how special she is to me.

10 Month Update

Posted on

My wee frog is 10 months today, and to celebrate it she decided to sleep a whole 7 hours straight last night without waking up! She only woke up 2 times altogether – which is less than she’s done in a looong time. Please please please let this be the beginning of a new era!!

My Baby Is 9 Months Old!

We’ve reached another milestone: Lana’s now been on this earth the same amount of time she spent in my womb. Although it feels like she’s been here for a lot longer than that! She’s still such a sunny little character who keeps surprising us every day.
