My blog had to be put on the sidelines for the past couple of months. But that’s because my time is being occupied by a jumping little 2 month old, who’s been growing so fast and early. He’s already teething and my priority is to make him as comfortable as I can during this painful time.
It still feels like a dream. I honestly look over at my son and can’t believe he’s there. He always surprises me and puts a smile on my face when he smiles. He is very much a momma’s boy right now. And while it is adorable, it definitely makes it harder to get things I want to do done. Every now and then, he behaves well enough that I can push out some posts.
It’s definitely an adjustment to post everyday like before and keep you all in the loop with my life. I’m starting to get a routine with him that allows me to have chunks of time to do my things.
Something I’ve been grateful for are the moments he plays with me and cuddles with me. He is very sensitive and loves to be comforted.
I feel like I am getting back on track with my life now, and can get back to taking care of myself too. I’ve kickstarted my skincare again and this week I am going to give myself the luxury of a bath ( taking a bath now is a luxury because showers are quick and easy). I feel like after these past 2 months, I deserve to pamper myself and take care of me. And it’s kinda like Christmas to me right now. I honestly cannot wait.
It has been a challenge with him, it’s not always rainbows and sunshine like my IG stories and IG posts (even these photos on here) show you all. And for other first time mothers out there, they will know.
It’s not always easy to keep a clean house, it takes a lot of effort to upkeep the baby, you, and the house. ( I’ve also made it harder on myself by having the pets to watch over too). So behind the scenes there is always a little bit of laundry to do, I am very thankful for having a dishwasher otherwise I have no idea where there would be time to hand wash dishes everyday.
And that’s not even the start of behind the scenes. There was a huge struggle with breastfeeding in the beginning and I won’t lie I got very discouraged and frustrated at myself. But with some help, breastfeeding has gotten better and he is eating really well.
If there are any of you that want a blog post that talks more about the struggles with breastfeeding, routine, dealing with housework. Let me know! Send me a comment or hit up my DM on Instagram (purelytimeless).
Now with that, someone has woken up and is looking right at me with Hungry Eyes.
Til next time everyone!!
