NEW MUM LIFE | ZARA’S MUM

New Mum.

Where to even start? Its been almost 5 months of Motherhood and I am loving every moment of it. Time has flown by and honestly this is definitely an overdue post. New Mum life has been great so far and I cannot wait to see what the rest of this journey has in-store for me and my baby girl.

Motherhood has definitely changed me, and I would definitely say for the better. I have had to grow and mature quickly, because I had a little human that completely depends on me. No, I am not perfect – but I am trying to be. Everything I do, I think of how it will impact my daughter. I love being a Mum and I am the happiest I have ever been.

Being a Mum has forced me (in a positive way) to manage me time properly. Before baby, I could roll out of bed, throw clothes on and head out the door. With baby Zara, not possible. I have to be dressed and ready at least two hours before I need to leave and get baby girl ready at least an hour before. That will then give me time to feed her and change any nappies before we leave.

I have also become a lot more efficient and procrastination is not a friend of mine anymore. I need to use the 2 to 4 hour nap slots to get as much done as possible. For example, I have about 3 hours in the morning to shower, clean, have breakfast, emails and plan the day before feeding and playtime for the baby. We do have a routine that is falling into place and I love how organised and efficient life is.

I have also learnt over the last two months or so, not to take everything people say to heart. It gets really frustrating sometimes when people say that I “spoil” her or that I should put her down more often etc. Since it is only me and her for about 7 to 10 hours on most days, no one knows what we do or how long she is in my arms for. Also, I LOVE cuddle sessions with my baby. I love showing her love and being her comfort and security. Now, when people “give advice”, I know its coming from a good place but I also know that I do not need to ingest it.

What’s her name you ask? Haha. I have mentioned her name briefly.

Zara. My baby Brother (he’s 9, almost 10), picked her name. It means PRINCESS. And she truly is a Blessing and a Princess. She’s got quite the personality, makes us laugh and brings joy to everyone she’s around. She makes my heart full. I love her so much.

Baby girl.

I love being Zara’s Mum. I thank God for life and health everyday. This is the most exciting, nerve-wrecking and beautiful chapter of my life. For all MOTHERHOOD content, make sure to follow the LINK.

    I love that your brother picked her name, that’s so cute! And I’m glad that the two of you are getting comfortable in your daily routines. Enjoy all the cuddle time you can get while she’s still tiny! She’s adorable x
