I can't believe she was already one month old last thursday! Time goes so fast sometimes it feels like I'm still on the same day eventhough 3 days have passed lol She is alot more awake now and aware of things aswell =) And for some reason she likes to fall asleep with sound and not in silence so I like to put her mobile on that's on her cot that plays a few songs and makes the mobile turn. She's also really fascinated with my hair lol When she's laid in my arms she won't stop looking at it. I think she's getting brown-ish eyes, because I can see some brown lines appearing, but then again she could just get blue eyes with brown stripes in.. we'll have to wait and see.
I went to town with her for the first time last Friday. I was great to just go somewhere other then the village and I think she liked it as well as she was awake the whole time, but she didn't cry or anything. The only bad thing about going shopping is that some shops are ridiculously hot so I have to keep on taking her coat off and putting it back on when I go out.. there's no need for heating with this nice weather it's silly.
It sure is hard work to breastfeed. Other women always make it look so easy, but it isn't and it's really easy to just quit, but I'm glad I haven't as I think I've finally got it down now so it's getting easier. I was on a forum the other day and I read that bottle fed babies (formula) only get fed like every 4 hours.. Violet wakes up around every 2/ 2 and a half hours, so unfair! lol But I'd rather wake up every hour then not breastfeed her it's so much better for her.
You'd almost think this was a baby blog and not a knitting/crochet one.. I haven't really done anything craft related, but I'm thinking of starting a new knitting project soon if I can manage to fit it in my "schedule" lol It's a summer cardigan with short sleeves and a sort of lace pattern on the front. It'll be my first ever cardigan so I'm a bit anxious to start it, but I won't know if I can do it unless I try. The pattern is in the latest Simply Knitting btw and it says it's perfect for people who have never knitted a cardi before, but have made things like patterned hats and things little more complex then just scarves. So I should be fine =)
Oh and I've finally got the internet at home btw, hooray lol ♥
This is only a quick update but still an update =D So there she finally is! She was born on April 17th at 12:06pm it took 13hours all together and she weighed 7.4 lbs and was 50cm long. I'll write about it more later when we have the internet at home (got it ordered and should be up and running for the 10th). The first week was really hard, especially cause I lost alot of blood and so became aneamic and I was a bit weak and well the tiredness doesn't help obviously, but I got through it and I'm starting to get used to it now. I've got lots more pictures, but they're all on a different computer so I'll post them next time. She's worth all the pain and all the hours being woken up she's just amazing and so beautiful and perfect and I sometimes still can't believe she's here and that I'm her mom, but when I do it feels good and I'm so proud it makes me cry.. the first few days I did nothing but cry cause of the baby blues lol
Luckily my parents were here when it all happened I really hoped it would happen that way so they could be there and see her straight away even if it was only for a few days :-) I can't believe she's 2 weeks and 3 days already it's all just gone so fast. I'll never forget those hours and the first time I saw her I was so happy I cried.
I hope everybody is doing well I'll be back on when I have the internet. ♥
