Awkward & Awesome Wednesday

Jeans, Shoes & Neckpiece: Mr Price; Top: Woolworths; Bag: YDE




Awkward:

Falling flat yesterday. I slid across the floor (okay, that's a slight exaggeration). I've got a purple knee as a reminder of the moment.
Iphone snapshots. While I dream of the Canon 550D, I need to sort out my old Canon, really.
This bun. It's getting old.
Isaiah discovered he can do all sort of sounds. The latest one is between a cry and the sound a monkey makes.
A baby in your bed. Why does the smallest person take up the most space?
I was in PJs for most of Heritage Day. What does that say about my heritage?
Wanting every colour from the Mac Matte lipstick range.


Awesome:
Getting many colours from the Mac Matte lipstick range. Obsessed.
New shoes. The highlight being a pair of ice cream Melissas!
A spontaneous braai.
Phone calls, with exciting news.
Waking up, then realising it's Saturday. I love when that happens. I feel like I won something, every time.
A bargain antique server.
Blue and orange. Together.
Prayer.
Isaiah, who is 7-months-old today.







Thanks to Lwazi for these quick Iphone snapshots.

Have a great day!

Motherhood Monday

Dress: Fashion Express; Shoes: Truworths; Bag: Foschini; Neckpiece: Sass Diva


Before Isaiah, my family consisted of Husband and I. We were each other's favourite place. Now that we're a trio, our family is so much sweeter. We never thought we could be so much happier. Our favourite place is where ever the three of us are. Things have changed, yes. Like, we haven't been to the movies in ages. Our days are lead by his eating/changing/napping schedule. Our weekends include a baby who wants our attention. And we love it. 

Our Saturday mornings are great. Isaiah wakes us up with his talking, and shouting, and laughing, and [often] face-smacking/eye-poking/lip-pulling. It's why we look forward to the weekend. It's the best life we never knew existed. Being a parent is such a huge responsibility, but it makes your heart so full. To express your love for your child is impossible. I love him soooooooooooooooo much (and more). 





Thanks to my mother for these (old) Iphone snapshots.

Happy Monday!

Motherhood Monday

Top, Pants, Shoes & Earrings: Mr Price; Bag: Foschini, Watch: Gifted Michael Kors


We experienced Isaiah's first crying spell on Wednesday night (into Thursday morning!), last week. 

I put him down to sleep at 9PM then he woke up screaming at 10PM. It took an hour to settle him, then he woke around midnight - again screaming. 

He didn't have a fever or any other obvious signs of being ill, so we thought we'd be able to get him to settle without getting him to a Doctor (as new parents, our first thought was to rush to the emergency room - of course). My mom suggested that his stomach might be the problem (he seemed constipated that day), and so we got out the Lennons (gave him 3 drops of Wonderkroon)! It seemed to help, but he kept fussing and threatening to sream - with silent, sad sobs. My heart hurt for him! 

Husband was worried, but I told him to sleep and I went into another room, where Isaiah eventually fell asleep at 1AM. That was good night. At 7 that morning, he woke up smiling and giggling as usual. It was as if nothing had happened. Now, to keep him regular, we've given him two spoons of Prune Purity in his food every other day. It seems to help his tummy (but I don't know what caused the stomach woes in the first place?!).

Leave any advice, or send me hugs!






Thanks to Husband for these Iphone snapshots, from Saturday.

Have a good week!

Gold

The Internet fails me today, again, and so I turn to mobile blogging, again. Here's what I'm wearing today. It's nothing particularly special. I built the look from the top, in a rush to get out the door after a sleepless night. I don't consider this my style anymore. I like to think my personal style has evolved into something edgier? As I say, I like to think so. 

Then again, I consider myself a moody dresser so maybe this is just not my style today. 



The top, skirt and neckpiece, from Mr Price; heels from Nine West; bag and sunglasses are from ALDO.
