Our baby is 3 months old!

I remember when I was pregnant, waiting and waiting to get to that ‘magic’ 12 week mark, my first appointment at the hospital… and how it took soooo long. I can’t believe how darn quickly the first 12 weeks of my darling little girl’s life have gone! And how I can hardly remember what it was like to not have her in our life. It feels so weird to look at my bump photos and grasp the fact that it’s Mayana in there!

She is such a precious little girl – brings such joy to mine and Peter’s life, and to so many others also. I can’t wait for her to reach her arms out to me, to give me a kiss, to say, “I love you Mama”… but for now, I’m loving watching her grow and develop, her gorgeous little smiles when she sees me in the morning – her chuckles when we play together, the way she snuggles into me when she’s snoozy, the gooey looks she gives her Papa. These precious days will be gone before I know it, and I’m going to enjoy and make the most of every single moment while they’re here.

Some days are rough, when she decides not to sleep, or feed properly, or doesn’t want me - only her Papa. But one little cheeky grin and all of that melts away and is taken over by an enormous wave of love – and the rough day is forgotten in an instant. And there is nothing more precious and peaceful than watching over her while she sleeps – sometimes Pete has to pull me away and make me go to bed so I can get some sleep. The love I have for is just all-encompassing and deeper than I could have even imagined.
