Wait, what? I can’t believe it’s been 2 months since we welcomed our baby into the world! It’s true what they say – when you have a baby, time goes by too fast. It’s just inappropriate how fast. At the same time, I feel like he’s always been a part of this family. I can hardly believe it used to be just the two of us.

Meet our baby

Jacek was born on July 24th at 17:27, 53 centimeters long and weighing 3,01 kilograms. He’s delightful and scored a full 10 on the Apgar scale.

How we’re doing

I’m not just saying this, because it’s the internet – we’re actually doing GREAT. The first days were hard (mostly due to our traumatic experience at the hospital), but ever since we came back home, it’s been nothing short of wonderful. I’m positively surprised at how well me and my husband adjusted to the new parenting routine. It’s great to know that all of our intense research on baby care didn’t go to waste.

This surprised us

Parenthood – I can’t believe how naturally it came to us. It doesn’t mean that we’re not tired or overwhelmed sometimes, but the transition was much smoother than I expected.

Marriage – I knew things were going to change between me and my husband, but I’m still surprised at how we’ve grown as a couple.

The intensity – no matter how much you hear or read that having a baby is a lot of work – it’s still a shock. It’s a ton of work and a lot of things to keep track of.

The volumes of laundry – Don’t let the baby’s little size fool you. The clothes might be small, but they add up to tons of laundry somehow.

Bath time – I know most babies love baths, but it’s the first time I’ve seen a baby fall asleep while having it’s head washed. 🙂

Products we love

Baby Swing Chair – If I could, I would hold the baby in my arms all day long. I don’t think my spine would be up for it though. Thankfully, Jacek loves hanging out in his swing chair. It’s been a life-saver for our backs.

Envelope Sleeping Wrap – I’m not even sure what to call it. A blanket? A wrap? A sleeping bag? Either way, it’s probably my best purchase out of all the baby things. Jacek loves sleeping wrapped in this thing. He likes it so much, I actually ordered an extra one a few days after his birth. Just in case we needed to wash the first sleeping bag so that he has a second one just like it.

Picture Highlights

First two months overall

It’s incredible how your life can change completely in a blink of an eye. Time flies faster than I can grasp it, but I’m letting it slip through my fingers. I cherish every minute of our new life as a family of three and I just can’t get enough! With that being said, excuse me while I go hug our baby for a while 🙂

Lots of love,
Anna
