Maybe he is...

I'm not sure what it is, but do you agree that people somehow always feel the need to tell you how your baby is feeling?

My son is crying, and only I know the differences of his cry...but someone will say something like...

Maybe he's hungry?
Maybe he's tired?
Maybe he needs changing?
Maybe he needs a cuddle?
Maybe he's constipated?
Maybe he needs a nap?

Well actually, how about maybe he's just fucking attention seeking and want's the whole world to know he's crying, huh?!

I get these comments all the time not just from my family who are experts in how to raise a baby, but from total strangers. I get it, some people just want to help, but i find it extremely annoying. My son is only 9 months old. He is very clingy. He is still my baby, so what do you expect? Yes, babies do cry, you know?! And for no reason sometimes, too!

I am writing this post because, someone said to me "you don't know anything about babies" I do and I don't. I am not worlds best Mother. I am a first time Mother. I respect that you have more children than me, but that does not mean you can go round saying this to people. Especially when you don't even know their babies!

I am his Mother. I know what he wants, and most of the time, he just wants me to cuddle him. He wants me to carry him wherever I go, and sometimes I can't get things done, but it's not going to be like this forever so I'll end this post on a positive note. I'm glad he knows who I am. I'm glad he wants my full attention. I'm glad he wants to come with me wherever I go. I'm glad he crawls to find me wherever I am in our home. I'm glad he cries if he can't see me, because guess what, i would be so upset if he didn't do those things. I'm glad he's reaching out to me when someone else is holding him.

"A portrait of my son, once a week, every week, in 2014."

I still can't believe you're 9 months. You've got two teeth at the bottom and another one cutting at the top. I feel like you're growing so fast and there is nothing I can do to stop it. Time is definitely not my friend. My sweet, darling boy...you are so fearless. I have to watch your every move. It's okay, I don't mind, because I love you and soon...you'll be walking and talking.

40 weeks today.

My niece woke up this morning and she said 'I was dreaming about Frozen last night. It's my favorite film.'  of course she requested to watch it with the babe after they've had their breakfast. I couldn't say no to that. She knows all of the Frozen songs already. She's only seen it since Thursday night and sings along to the songs, cutest voice ever. Actually, they both do with a bit of screaming coming from the babe. I'm not gonna lie, it's a great film to distract the kids, while i get things done. I think I've seen it a good 3-4 times since then.

My all time favourite thing to do is - capturing moments. It doesn't matter if it's a beautiful or an ugly picture/selfie...it's all about remembering the memories behind the picture. And that's what i'm going to be doing this week...taking as many pictures as I possibly can. I'm currently visiting my family in the West Midlands. I don't  really see them as often as I would like to, as I don't live close.. but we speak to each other every single day, so that kinda makes up for it.


My little niece came to visit us all the way from Mallorca on Thursday, so it's only fair she gets to see the rest of our family. We've been here in the West Midlands since Friday. Travelling with two kids is NOT the easiest thing in the world - especially with the age differences, a 9 month old, teething babe and a three year old Diva with a capital D - but I did it! I was so nervous. But all went well, and so far here at my parents house, so good.  I take off my hat to anyone who's raising more than 2 babes. I don't know how you do it. I don't know how my mama does it. You're all super stars. Honestly! But yeah, this trip was a well needed trip. It's always nice to see the family when you haven't seen them for a very, very long time. The only person missing is the Mister. I am of course missing him like crazy.

about time...
