It seems this week I got myself a life, well something similar to one. I’ve been busy and not just with laundry or buying more watermelons for Aidan to gum to death. My Mum & Dad have gone home but my awesome sister Stephanie is spending some time at the Mezza house and enjoying getting to know her nephew now she’s back from Europe. It’s so weird to think of my sister as an Aunty but that’s what she is and it’s pretty cool to witness them bonding. We’ve been watching marathon episodes of Gossip Girl, tickling Aidan and having naps… it’s been nice. She’s still here for a couple more weeks yet and I intend to soak up as much of her as I can.
Aidan seems to be in more of a routine now and we find ourselves waking once a night. His last feed is at 21:30 and then wakes for a feed at 02:00 and then again at 06:00. I’ve been hesitant to share our good news incase I jinx it. In the day he has apple puree for breakfast around 9-10, a bottle at 11:30, then one at 15:30 followed by dinner of sweet potato and a bottle around 19:00. No dreamfeeding, no expressing, no crying… from either of us. He has a full tummy and is finally content, well for now anyway lol. The weight has lifted and I find it so much easier to breathe. Now he’s not the only one smiling, I am too.
Steve is doing really well at work and is being recognised for it so I’m very proud of him. A few exciting things are happening which I might share later on. At home he’s also getting all the gold stars. Things have been good, better than good most days and I feel very lucky. There are times when it’s not easy and we snap at each other and go to our corners to chill out but those moments are rare. Our marriage might be even stronger than ever and I find myself wanting to use words like “blessed” but instead I’ll use “Bliss”. We’ve been together for 7 years and I’m thankful for everyday, even the hard ones.
My mind is a bit all over the place at the moment, because I haven’t blogged as often lately I find my mind is filled with a backlog of “posts” just begging to be written, all with corresponding photos. Right now though, I just needed to write, skim a little off the top so to speak. I miss relating to my readers through all the touching comments and I miss the way I feel when I write. I feel so lucky to connect with others, especially over topics which are usually left unspoken. Blogging is a very interesting medium.
