Little feet that used to kicked my ribs 😻
🍼baby notes - it is not as hard of an adjustment to the newborn as I expected it to be. Maybe, the experience, or maybe the older memories are exaggerated, or maybe it is because I was mentally preparing for what comes with newborn that made the difference, but this is what it is and I am very happy with it.
🔖work notes - I haven't taken time off for maternity leave this time around at all. As a matter of fact, I worked during the first half of labor, and the day after Elisey was born I had a project that needed to be turned in. And a few days after I needed to go back ( unexpectedly) to a dancing part of my life too. A little too ambitious? Probably. A bit too "workaholic"? For sure. It works for me though. And I love it. Partially, I had things prepped on advance to ensure the workflow is not affected.
Partially, situations happened to come up that required my involvement. Not the best time in the world, but does life ever happen at the best time?
✨ life notes - my husband accidentally lacerated his hand, deep enough to probably cause some tendon damage. How severe we still don't know, but 10 stitches later, he's got a splint for the next 1-2 months. Hopefully, all comes to the best outcomes. In the meantime, this translated into my load being quadrupled, from work to home, as lots of changes needed to be made - he can't really help with a baby much and can't hold/operate heavy video equipment neither ( we are looking for a temporary replacement for him at the moment).
I'm just grateful this didn't happen before I had a baby. Life obviously likes to test my limits. But there is a bright side to it all. Always. And that's what gives me strength to move forward .✨
Маленькие пяточки, которые меня толкали изнутри еще совсем недавно.😻
🍼 малышовские заметки - в этот раз адаптация к новому малышу не такая сложная, как я ожидала. То ли опыт, то ли преувеличенные воспоминания первого малыша, то ли подсознательная подготовка внутренне заранее - так или иначе, я не против 🤗
🔖рабочие заметки - с этим малышом у меня не было вообще даже подобия микро-декрета, даже по американским меркам. В этот раз👇🏻
