Hi guys! I cannot believe time is flying by so quickly. It feels like it was yesterday when I gave birth to my baby girl and already she's almost one month old!!


How I'm doing:


- I'm a totally person than I was before. You guys know when your whole purpose in life changes in matter of days? That's where I am at now. I mean, first I wanted to get my engineering degree, then get my dream career, meet the perfect guy, get married to him, buy our first house....I had done all of that and life for the last few years seemed just....ummm inward and selfish! Now I look at my daughter and think wow, you are the purpose of my life. Raising you to be a strong, intelligent and respected lady is what I'll be aiming for. I still don't know how I deserved to have such beauty as my daughter <3 p="p">

- I have lost most of the 22 lbs I had gained during pregnancy and now only have 4 lbs to lose to be where I was last December. I need to wait for my 6 week appt though before exercising.

- The baby blues have completely vanished. I'm just enjoying the cuddle with my baby now :)

How Sofia's doing:



- Sofia's still waking up a lot to nurse. Right now she sleeps in a co-sleeper on our bed as she hated her bassinet. She sleeps from 7:30 pm to 12:30 am and then usually every 2.5 hours after that she wakes up to nurse. I'm not in a hurry to sleep train her...she's still so young!

- She's a champion napper. She takes two 2-3 hour naps during day and afternoon and a couple of 20 mins cat naps. She loves to nap in her swing or on a receiving blanket on the couch while her mommy browses the internet.

- She already has a tone of muscle control and mostly holds up her own head!

- She's about 10 lbs now and not fitting into 3 month clothing! Are all babies bigger than the clothes designed for their size? This is crazy!

- People think she's mostly daddy! Though her lips are identical to mine. What do you guys think?

Daddy's girl!

- We are no longer scared of getting the house on our own. I mean Sofia was always fine but her mommy was scared. I wear her in my Moby wrap (I think she's too young for stroller) and go for walks around the neighbourhood. Next is to tackle grocery shopping!

Hope you guys enjoyed this update. Will keep Sofia updates to once a month and then some at random. Have an awesome Thursday!

    Awww, she so pretty! God bless her.

    My kids always wore clothes that were supposedly for older babies, so I always think there's something tricky about that.

    Glad to know you are doing well. Def. it's a total life changing experience. I remember thinking "Wow, so this is what they mean about 'wait 'til you have kids'" It's impossible not to see life in a whole different way. =)
