Keeping busy

Two weeks ago our Theo arrived and the time since then just flew by so far. Theo has caught our hearts and is holding them very tight in his little hands. 😎

I had to observe M and Theo from the edge of the swimming pool. *sniff* They had a good time and Theo did his first dive. – No, I’m not joking.

My boobs, before pregnancy a firm handful, had changed to one cup more until the end of pregnancy. That was still ok, but now since I’m breastfeeding Theo they have turned into melons. And yes, I’ve a lot of milk, too much actually. So, I’m playing with the idea to donate the excess which is valued higher than gold. Preemies and sick newborns can digest breastmilk better than formula to help those little ones with our excess would be a good thing esp since Theo gets as much as he needs. But first we have to wait until 6 weeks after birth before we can start with it.

Kitchenwise I’ve been pretty slow and nothing else than a couple of cakes and some muffins popped out of the oven. But we’ll try to get better on this front again too.

Blueberry muffins, approved by L’s son 🙂

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERAYesterday evening we went to the cinema. Our friends I, J and Lexie took care of Theo while we were watching Elysium. The movie wasn’t that great but to be going out with M  again was very nice and for us as “new baked” parents a good opportunity to learn to let go. Theo had a great time at our friends place who pampered him as much as possible. To have grandparents around is a great support this comes with the family package but friends who take responsibility for your tiny loved ones are unpayable. You say thank you, but it’s actually not enough, you would like to say more, but the words are missing, cause they make you so happy that you can trust them with the most important thing in your life. ❤
