“Sometimes it’s the same moments that take your breath away that breathe purpose and love back into your life.”
― Steve Maraboli
Hello everyone and welcome to a new week! I trust you all had a nice weekend and are inviting a new week of endless possibilities. I thought it would be nice to start each Monday with a recap of our week with a few photos and just a little text. Ever since having Oskar just 7 weeks ago (!!!!!) I have used my iPhone more than I ever thought I would. Every time I see him looking extra cute and sweet I just cannot help but share it with you, my readers as well as every one of my family members. That’s right, you are a part of my extended family! I hope you enjoy these little moments that hold so much love and meaning for me. I hope they make you smile.
Yesterday I decided Oskar needed something other than a blank wall to look at over his changing table. Framed artwork just didn’t seem right and I was honestly afraid of what might happen if it fell. I found some sweet little artwork I bought a while ago by Britt Hermann, you can see more here. Oskar loves to gaze at the bright colors and soft shapes not to mention the heart from Austria!
The moments where it is just my little man and me are my most favorite. He sleeps on my chest and I just listen to him breathe before I doze off into my own slumber with one eye always slightly open in case he moves too much. These are the best parts of my day apart from when he smiles!
So, here is that smiling part! Oh how he smiles when his bath is over and he can move and shake so freely! He loves bath time. The constant flow of warm water surrounding his little 8 pound body must just be the best thing for him. It is so sweet to see him totally relaxed and enjoying the moment.
Many of you have asked how Coolwhip and Popcorn are dealing with Baby O which I find so thoughtful. Popcorn remains as curious as ever and very protective. Coolwhip is always wondering why he cries and gently nuzzles his head when he hears a whimper or a cry. Animals truly are so intuitive and I am glad my two boys have adjusted as well as they have.
I have found my job as a mother the hardest thing I have ever done, and at the same time the best job I have ever taken on. I am tired and I have black circles under my eyes that my makeup cover very well, but I wouldn’t change a thing. No one ever said raising a child was easy, right? I will say motherhood is meaningful and the best teacher I have ever known for I have learned so much about myself and the areas I need to work on. What better than a super cute teacher who loves you no matter what!?
For more cherished moments you can join us on Instagram. I hope you have enjoyed our little recap from the week. We wish you and everyone in your day a lovely Monday.
