Wonder Week #4 - Part 2

I suddenly remembered that Wonder Week 4 has two parts to it. The first hits around 14 weeks and the second around 19. We are officially in Part 2!

The power of little fingers

All of a sudden, Sticky has opened her little fists and is now grabbing everything. While I'm very glad to see this development, I'm not so happy to be the victim of it!

The dreaded question

Over the past few weeks, the most common question I've been asked is "Will you have another baby?" Just the thought of it sends me into an anxiety meltdown,

Teething torture

It seems Sticky has officially started teething. There isn't a tooth insight yet, but something tells me I'm going to need all my mummy strength to get through this!

A brave bubba

Sticky had her second round of vaccinations today.  Her ignorance was bliss. I wish I had some too!

The beauty of a baby's cry

I'm lucky - Sticky doesn't really cry too often. It seems to be only if she's got gas, is over tiered or doesn't want to go to sleep. The fact is, I don't mind if she cries because it means she knows I'm here for her.

A new direction

Now I've had 7 months sitting at home, it's time to take a new direction in my life. My brain has been in overdrive for a while now thinking of what I can so with myself while at home. I finally stumbled on an answer - I'm going to become a celebrant!

Mother's Day

Yesterday was my first Mother's Day. It was an emotional day because it wasn't that long ago I wasn't sure I would ever experience it.

Apology to my childless friends

I came across this apology to friends clip on You Tube today. It was quite timely given I've had 2 reminders in the past few days of how different my life now is with childless friends!

Sticky turns one

Today is a major milestone - Sticky has been in this world for one year today! No, it's not her birthday, it's her conception day. She was conceived one year ago today and that's something worth celebrating!

The month I fell pregnant I had given up hope. I was so caught up in trying to figure out our next move  I didn't have time to think I was pregnant. I remember the weekend it happened. I had gone in for my blood test and told I was ovulating. I knew we had to have sex so we managed it on the Saturday night but the Sunday was a write off after we had to rush the cat off to the vet at 9pm. I felt the window was closed but figured no harm trying on the Monday. And hey presto!

One year later, and this is what I have!

A beautiful, alert, smiley little bundle! I'm still amazed when I look at her to think one microscopic sperm and egg created her. From the moment they met, the colour of her eyes and hair, her personality, her mannerisms and so many other things were determined. 

In that year, she has grown from a tiny dot to this little monkey! And she will grow even more in the next year. I was reminded of how quickly time has already gone when I saw a friend's baby yesterday who's just a week old. She was born 3 weeks premise and weighed more than Sticky did when she was born! I couldn't believe Sticky was once that small but I know she was. 

At 15 weeks time has flown by and I hazard a guess time will fly even faster as she becomes more demanding of my time and energy, which I'm more than happy to give. I feel like I have to stare at her - too afraid to blink in case I miss anything. For me, there is simply nothing more important in my life than truly engaging with her. There is no tv show, Facebook update, website or phone call that beats her. I've wasted enough of my life engaging in those meaningless things so they now take a backseat to what matters most. Funnily enough, it's not a hard a choice to make!

Wonder Week #4

My Wonder Week book says each Wonder Week gets more intense than the last and they are spot on. Sticky is in the middle of one and it's been brutal.
