- Baby Emilia is 6 weeks old tomorrow and is getting cuter and cuter by the day. My midwife weighed her last week and she was 9 lb 9 oz. She is now wearing size 0-3 months clothes and I have piles of clothes that she has already grown out of. It feels like she's growing before our eyes!
- She's so alert now and has started making eye contact with us. She's fascinated with colour and light and is becoming more familiar with her surroundings. A few days ago she starting smiling at us when we talk to her but we can never seem to catch it on camera.
- This little girl keeps me extremely busy during the day and when shes not attached to my boob or sleeping she wants lots of cuddles and my full attention. My sister sent me the Ergo baby carrier a few weeks ago and it has been an absolute life saver. I can now get work done around the house with her still being attached to me. It's so much easier to get out and about with her too and she usually falls asleep pretty quickly once she's in her baby carrier. Baby wearing is Gods gift to mothers!
- 5pm and the weekend can't come around fast enough for me as I just love having Rob around! He's such an amazing hands on dad and Emilia just adores him. I love our little family so much!
- Every Sunday afternoon we visit Rob's parents for Sunday lunch and Emilia gets totally spoiled with love by her Oma, Opa and Aunty Katharina. They all absolutely adore her and are always arguing over who gets to cuddle her. I can see her little mind ticking and taking in all of the different languages she's surrounded with.
- I'm getting so ridiculously excited about my mum arriving from New Zealand for a whole month in late March! She gets to see Emilia all the time on skype but it's just not the same as in person. I miss her so much especially now I'm a mother myself.
- Rob, Emilia and I are flying to New Zealand for a whole month in July/August. I can't wait for my family and friends to finally meet our little girl!
- It's no lie when they say that motherhood is a full time job, but it's definitely the most rewarding job I've ever had.
