Mormor (grandma) has left the country – its been lovely to have her here to support and help during the first two weeks of James’ life – and now it’s slightly scary to take care all myself when daddy is at work! She said before she left, that I have passed the basic ‘mum-exam’ and now able to do this on my own – yay 🙂 So of course we can handle this, James!! 🙂 His new Passport will soon be in process so we can go to visit the rest of the family in DK and UK – and to enjoy the nice European summer! I can’t wait to go for a stroll with the pram OUTSIDE!!! However first off, we need to make a birth certificate in English and Arabic language stamped by the authorities in Dubai, then we can apply for passport (looking forward to the little cute photo!), then we need to process the visa and THEN we can travel home! It will take a few weeks but should be able to reach Europe by end of August!! Fingers crossed.
Today is the first day at home alone – and its going so well that I even have time to write this update 🙂 We’re eating and sleeping a lot! Well James is … I have been cuddling and sending photos to daddy… even of his snot… a big green snail was finally out of his little tiny nose so without thinking I took photo and sent to daddy… Okay not a beautiful Kodak moment but James sounded like a steamroller and maybe have a little cold, so I was so happy it was finally out! 🙂 And now I understand what they mean when they say your life changes after kids, never in a million years would I dream of sending my husband a photo of something so gross as snot in the old days I only sent beautiful photos of myself to him, but now I actually take pride in the achievement of getting it out his little nose LOL!! .. How life changes – not that we would change a thing, but maybe less snot photos in the future…!! (Sorry James and Daddy!)
There are lots of firsts at the moment in our house – not only first day home alone – Daddy took great pride in playing James the first piece of music he would ever hear, of course it had to be Oasis – Champagne Supernova, Daddy says James loved it but i’m not so sure 🙂 But for me there are some personal victories also! I can finally fit my wedding ring again – or to be correct, I got it on and now there is no chance it will go off again!! But doesn’t have to anyway 😉 Pampering – Oh I missed you; I can start using a bit of perfume agin, I took a bit of nail polish on the other day and maybe I should start on make up again… Before pregnancy I wouldn’t go out with the bin bag without make up and now I haven’t used it for days!! So far I’ve been using my maternity clothes after birth, which are so comfortable (and I still look like I’m wearing a floating donut) and because of the scar I don’t want to wear anything tight – but I’m starting to fit into some old clothes again yayyy – did I mention I now lost 11 kg – ‘ONLY’ 16 kg to go… two of them are possibly milk… 🙂 BUT the most important thing is that all James’ ‘firsts’; well everything we do these days are firsts, all from lifting head to visit the mall – the proud parents are taking lots of photos at the moment – will try to avoid snot from now on (and no it was not appropriate to snot post photo on the blog!)….!!
Have a nice day xxx
