A great leader is dead.
There are no words to describe how brilliant this man was. He was a true believer. He believed in his country and his people. He saved South Africa.
He will always be in our hearts and his spirit will always surround us. South Africa is still a amazing and beautiful country and to honour Madiba we must continue to believe. Believe democracy, believe in justice, believe in love.
We will never forget you Tata.
Lying in bed with our two boys sleeping next to me. Normally V watches the iPad at this time, together with a bottle of milk. It is the only time of the day he is allowed to watch iPad, and the 101 Dalmatians is the favourite.
This evening the iPad is dead and charging it seems to take forever. I’m starting to get irritated – is it broken??? Instead of the 101 Dalmatians, I talk to V about the day and what he has done. He looks at me with his big blue eyes. I feed Andrea at the same time. A magical moment, V drifts of, he has forgotten about the iPad and he goes to sleep. Andrea is also sleeping. I’m on my own. I’m wondering why we need the iPad at all? I thought it was to calm down after a long day. We always read a book just before bedtime but the iPad is a nice pause aswell. Now I’m starting to think it is not…
I seem to be the only one who is patiently waiting for the iPad to wake up.
Some pics from our day…
Bad weather means playing inside – jumping in the sofa.
Sunday is zoo day…
Being a parent is exhausting, amazing, tough, incredible – you go from total frustration to overwhelming joy.
With Vittorio it has been a couple of weeks of pure joy. He is just the sweetest kid. Singing, talking, discussing, arguing (with the dogs mostly). He even treats Andrea pretty good, no drama just some hitting and pinching mostly to see the reaction and not because he is jealous.
He embraces his role as a big brother, and I think he is actually quite happy to have someone else in the family.
Having A in the family also gives you perspective. V is so grown up and can do so much. I love listen to him singing or talking on his own. See how he walks into his room grabs a book and starts to “read”. I feel that having Andrea has made me fall in love all over again with Vittorio. I feel so blessed having two beautiful little boys. See them grow up and develop into young men. What will they become?
This is my background on my phone. Today I’m on schedual feeding wise but the sleep – Naaa I let him sleep if he wants to. He sleeps good during the night and that’s the most important.
Went for Andrea’s vaccination this morning. He is now 6,3 kg – no wonder I’m losing weight. I’m trying to pump today but he is like a clock. Every time I get a “let down” he starts to jiggle in the pram. FOODTIME.
Outfit today – me and my kitty
Playing around with plexi and neon and this is the result.
Just love the colors…
69 kg, 5 to go. Going to the gym tomorrow for the first time, soooo looking forward to it. And a new design around my wrist (gray).
Just want to add – A just took the bottle YEAY. The temperature is the key, I think it was too cold yday.
So my day started at 04:35 – V wanted milk and some love. A was sleeping so I cuddled up with V in his bed and felt
his cold little feet. I just love to lie in his bed and feel his warm little body (and cold feet) and hear the birds telling you it’s a new day.
A is also getting better and bigger (!) – Sunday he ate non stop between 3 and 6 and he wears clothes that V had when he was 4 months. I’m trying to give him the bottle but he is not impressed. I have to if I want to be able to do anything longer than 2 hours.
Now all my boys are up except one (guess . The circus begins – Have a great day.
After getting both kids to bed I decided to create. So while cooking dinner and watching “lonely mother seeking” – I did this. It was not what I had planned to do, it never goes that way, but I like it.
