This morning started with a doctor's visit...my postpartum checkup with the OB! I snapped this picture of Emilia in the waiting room. Doesn't she look like a present?! I especially love the drool on her mouth, ha ha ha! Jonathan and I always remember watching the new mamas come into the waiting room with their bundles of joy and thinking "that will never be us!" It just seemed so surreal and far away yet here we are almost 3 months later with our own little Emilia! It's quite amazing when you think about it...being an OB or midwife must be such a rewarding job. Although it was a bit sad leaving the clinic knowing that we were now finished or I guess you could say "honourably discharged"! After months of doctor's appointments and ultrasounds you build up a relationship with these people and it seems strange when it's suddenly all over. Jonathan and I both feel like we just got out of a 9 month relationship or something, ha ha ha!
After the doctor's office we went to Costa for a much-needed coffee fix. We are all exhausted after the weekend...I don't even know why, I think we must be old fogies or something! Any bit of excitement has us yearning for a long nap afterwards to recover, ha ha ha! It's probably because of the broken sleep with Emilia...but we are definitely very tired lately! I got a chicken sandwich for lunch followed up by a croissant & black coffee...and you can catch a glimpse of Jonathan's lemon & poppyseed muffin in the background, mmm!
I attempted to film a video for my channel with Emilia today...it was a big fail but she did enjoy hanging out in my cupcake room!! Do you think she wants to swap?! I love her chubby cheeks!! And her little hand dimples, he he he! What a cutie ;) I also tried putting her down for a nap in her crib this afternoon but it didn't work because she had fallen asleep on the boob (like always!) and was taking a grand old nap then until I attempted to put her down. Of course the minute her head hit the mattress she opened her eyes and smiled at me as if to say "oh hey mama, is it playtime now?" I even put on her mobile in hopes that the music and spinning would hypnotise her into a deep sleep but it was all in vain...she just lay there grinning at it the entire time thinking it was all a game. And then when I crept up to her closet to take out her hair bows for the video she locked eyes with me through the bars of her crib and let out a big fat CHUCKLE. Ha ha ha, what a fail! We'll try again tomorrow...
In any case I did manage to film my Mom & Baby November Favourites video (sans Emilia...aww) so that will be up on my channel later this evening. YouTube is performing maintenance today so I'm not sure what time it'll be available to watch. Above is a sneak peek at my favourites for the month!
Hope you're all having a marvellous Monday, as my blogger friend Liesl would say ;)
