Two days ago, #TheImbaks grew by 1 tiny human. We're happy to announce that we are proud (and exhausted) parents to a beautiful and healthy baby girl with fingers so tiny, and a cry that will wake up the entire country. We've slept a grand total of four hours these two days and discovered the ways of power napping, I'm covered in milk stains and hand sanitiser, but we've never been more happy in our lives. #MiniMI is finally here!

Thanks Kenny for making sure that this fatty is the coolest dressed baby in town. I mean, cats and cool copy shirts? #HipsterBaby coming through. Thanks for also thinking of me and knowing that I'll probably need to zen the fuck out after this baby's out. I'll probably see you again for Guzzy in... 18 years? Give or take...

I'm pretty speechless - I sought out to get these for #MiniMI but I guess Jem beat me to it. Thank you, for being there for us through these what 10? years and of course most recently, coming through with sneaker news and deals. She's already the trendiest baby on this planet, and you my Friend, have set the bar pretty high now.

We leave something of ourselves behind when we leave a place, we stay there, even though we go away. And there are things in us that we can find again only by going back there.

(almost) go time - first things first, a last supper with #TheCraigs and then it's ticktockticktock time to pack the baby socks.

Some days I might sound ungrateful, some days I might be abit too boastful. I try to keep most feelings to myself these days because I've been teased, dissed about sharing too much. Maybe I have. I think this will be much better anyway - I don't have to explain to anyone why today was a good or bad day, I don't have to worry if my problems are being gossiped about, I get to seethe and sob silently; how I prefer to calm myself down. Anyway, the point is I realised today that my life turned out to be weird, with its twists and turns, the highs and lows. I'm not at my happiest nor my saddest - but I'm certainly contented. Days like yesterday and today are hard because I'm still sick. But days like the days before and tomorrow will be so much better. I am trying to be a better version of myself - if being detached to people and being quiet is the way to do it then I will. Condoning to someone's perception of parenting, or how a Mother-Daughter relationship should be like isn't my idea of happy or being better. I'm not gonna be a perfect Mom - for damn sure. Never have been a perfect wife too. Never called myself a good Friend or even a wonderful Daughter. I'm just this one person, trudging along this path - trying not to be the clumsy clusterfuck that I am, thanking God for these little blessings and most of all for His gifts to me in the form of a Husband who not only showers me with the love that I need but the viruses that I don't really want and this little perfect tiny person that we are gonna welcome in a matter of days/weeks. It's been wild, but maybe taking a step back won't be that bad. ❤️

I've been reading "Quiet: The Power of Introverts in a World That Can't Stop Talking" at @shaffism recommendation. I always knew I was an introvert, I don't know when the transition happened but it did. And trust me, I'm in a much happier state.

I've waited a thousand lifetimes, cried a thousand tears. The past months have been an eye opening experience, feeling your little jabs turn into mighty kicks is a definite highlight but now I can't wait. We can't wait. Anytime now mon bébé, see you soon. #TheImbaks
