Life & blog update: September 2019

my baby girl is 3 weeks old in this photo

Life and blog update: September 2019….was all about my baby girl 🙂 So, feel free to skip this post if you’d rather read about travel. My baby girl L. was born almost a month ago. I actually managed to write about her already. Yes, she’s fine. And I’m fine too, otherwise I wouldn’t be here. This second postpartum recovery went faster than the first. At least these first few weeks weren’t as difficult as the first time round. (However, I still look pregnant. This time I’d probably need to exercise to get rid of the baby bump). Also, it was so much easier to deal with a newborn. I guess experience counts for something after all. The only issue was/is our toddler. As expected the whole situation of mummy being away at the hospital and then coming back and devoting her time to another child was quite difficult for him at the beginning. He was both angry at me and jealous of his baby sister. Yet at the same time he was also sweet around her. I wish I could tell you that he’s completely accepted the new situation. But it takes time. I know he’ll be her best friend, soonish. 😉

Meet my baby girl L.

She’s here. My baby girl L.

She was born on 10th of September. After 9 months and past her due date she decided to make a surprise appearance (will she always be fashionably late? Quite unlike her mum). I was supposed to be induced in a couple of days because I was practically 41 weeks pregnant and they don’t like it when the pregnancy lasts longer even if everything is all right. But suddenly I felt strong pain in my back and thought to myself this might be it, the start of something after all. Even though I had given birth once before I wasn’t sure that I had contractions until they were quite forceful and just minutes apart. We went to the hospital and after just 2 hours of intense, natural labour my baby girl opened her eyes for the first time in our world.

When I saw my baby girl I thought how tiny she is… She was 49cm long and weighed 3150g at birth. Much smaller than her big brother (not even a 2 year old yet). Was that already the beginning of a lifetime of comparisons? I hope not.

Life & blog update :August 2019

at the beach

Life & blog update:August 2019 .…was another hot month. Too hot for a pregnant woman in her last few weeks of pregnancy. Who knows maybe my baby girl is already born at the time when you read this 🙂 My second pregnancy was pretty much the same as my first pregnancy. The only big exception is that I got varicose veins in my right leg and that I didn’t suffer from heartburn in the last trimester. However, it wasn’t easy at all to take care of an active toddler with an ever growing baby bump. I think my bump is bigger now but I’ve actually gained just a bit more weight. I’m looking forward to a baby girl, I imagine things will be different with her. But then again, maybe it’ll be the same as it was with her older brother. The thing I’m sure of is that the first few weeks after birth will be difficult because I’ll have to muster somehow enough energy to spend quality time with my boy and my newborn. Will my boy be jealous? Have you had two kids under two? Give me some advice😉

Life & blog update: July 2019

Dvigrad, Istria, Croatia

a day trip to Dvigrad ruins

Life and blog update: July 2019….was a very hot month. It’s not easy to endure a heatwave when pregnant 8 and a half months! I spent some time at the beach chasing after my 20 months old boy. We attended a medieval festival in Istria which was lots of fun (link below).

What else happened in July? We went to see our friends’ new kitten. Oh, I forgot how tiny kittens are. Our 6 year old cat is quite big;)

Life & blog update: June 2019

Dubovac Castle, Croatia

We visited this beautiful castle in Karlovac, Croatia at the beginning of June

Life and blog update: June 2019…. was a month of local travel &adventures 🙂 We finally went on a proper day trip with our boy after a long time. We visited beautiful Dubovac Castle and had lunch with friends. Surprise, surprise I already blogged about it.

I’ve met up with an old friend. We were best friends growing up but then we drifted away and recently we’ve gotten in touch again. She’s got a baby girl so she handed me down all her small clothes for my baby girl. Is it customary in your part of the world to get used baby clothes from friends&family, from older kids? It’s quite common (and useful) here.

Life & blog update: May 2019

a beach on island Krk, Croatia

Life & blog update : May…was a kind of an ups&downs month…from birthday celebrations to a funeral and a wedding. But that’s life!

I blogged about our weekend trip to Berlin in April. It was really a great trip and just what we needed before our baby girl arrives at the beginning of September. I hope to blog about our last year’s trip to San Marino with our boy (I posted only two photo posts , I didn’t write about sights).

Alexander platz, Berlin

Alexander platz in Berlin, Germany

Life & blog update : April.. was an exciting month for sure. My husband and I visited Berlin for a weekend. It was our first trip without our toddler. We’ve had lots of fun and we’ll definitely be back for some more exploration of Berlin. Hope to blog soon about our weekend but for now you can check my photo post of Berlin (link below ).

Last month we’ve also found out that our second baby is a girl! So exciting!!:) I’m still feeling quite all right, no major pregnancy problems apart from my growing baby bump and the lack of choice in my wardrobe. And I’m starting to get excited about all the pink, glittery girly clothes 😉
