I finished my last post saying I had hope….. In june I still had hope. So much hope. I hoped to see my parents again this summer. Before Covid-19 took over the world our plan was to spend a month in Estonia from mid July to mid August. Now this plan wasn’t there anymore because … More 2020, The Mad Year – Part 2 – Summer, Fall And Winter
Well this is long overdue, not sure if I visited this blog even once last year…Maybe? Maybe before it all got mad? I say 2020 but “this” is not over yet, is it? It’s February 2021, a day before Valentine’s and I still feel that not much has changed. I don’t even know how to … More 2020, The Mad Year, Part 1 – Spring
It’s been two months of Jacob’s first birthday, so I thought that I finally take some time and write his birth story down. Because strangely I still remember everything like it was yesterday.

Gosh, pressed my Mom Journal button the Bookmarks bar and it took me to my blog. I was logged out. That’s how long it’s been! And I got confused…..I was like where do I sign in? Why I only have an option to follow myself? What? What year is it?? Then I realised I have … More Well, hello!!!
It feels like it’s been forever since I felt full of energy, motivation and well…like myself! I’ve been introduced to the joys of having two kids and having them both ill at the same time or separately first one and then another… it’s like this never ending vicious circle that as soon as things get … More Broken
Now I’m writing this basically for my two boys because maybe one day when they’ll be rebellious teenagers I forget these beautiful moments and how obsessed I was with them every minute of every day! Firstly, to my first-born, nearly a 2-year-old, Quinn: You’re amazing. Your gorgeous brown eyes, cheeky smile and your very loud … More New Type Of Love Letters
OH how the times have changed! Today I was in baby sensory class with Jacob and the theme was “show time”. So the music was sort of Hollywood/musical theatre style. Then Big Spender came on from Sweet Charity…and I realised how much has changed within 10 years. This song took me back to year 2009 … More Hey Big Spender!
I started writing this post when the new family addition, Jacob, was 5 weeks old…he’s nearly 3 months now.. I think?! Safe to say – I’ve been busy! So….. I’m a mom of two boys now! I’m so glad we didn’t find out the sex beforehand. It felt beyond awesome to lift the baby up … More And Then There Were Two
Firstly, let me start by saying how much I appreciate midwives and what they do. I think it’s an incredible job and in my next life I might as well become one. I have also watched almost all seasons of “Call the midwife” and that made my appreciation even stronger. Thinking back about my first … More The Role Of A Midwife
I’m 38 weeks tomorrow and I am ready. My hospital bag’s been backed for a while now so I’m ready to go when the time is here. I just have a feeling that this time around I won’t have to wait as long as I did with Quinn, plus they also say that second babies … More Any Day Now!
