Humpday Confessions {Link Up #10}

I am so late today with this post and linking up to the part for Humpday Confessions with Kathy however I can't seem to get the button working :( 


I wish I had the patience to give a wonderful explanation and an introductory paragraph which would explain why I am so late and why it is I haven't posted since last week's confessions but I don't so let's just get into it.




... I have been in Johannesburg for almost two weeks. I came to visit my cousin before she had her baby and to be around when the baby was born.

... Baby B as I was calling her was due on the 18th of July but i was hopeful that she would be a few days early so I could get some extra time with her before I was forced  had to go back to Cape Town but he decided the 18th was her date to arrive so now I only got to have 5 days with her.






... after being there for my cousin pre-labour and post labout I have a newly found respect for woman who give birth naturally and especially my mom because that is not easy!

... I am honestly rethinking whether I should have gestational carriers for my babies in the future.

... it was so beautiful to see how my family reacted to meeting the newest addition to our family. She's the first great grand child on my dad's side of the family so Baby B represents the new generation of our family.

... I know people always say when you have a baby everything comes naturally to you but it's still surprised me how easily my cousin and her hubby (and everyone around us) have adapted to being around the baby and changing her or burping her.

... I totally get why there are so many mommy bloggers out there. This is my niece and I feel like I want to tell the World about every little thing that she does. Oh and did I mention, she's only 5 days old? It's awesome to show off  discuss how different babies are and also your everyday concerns which you feel silly asking the doctor or midwife.

... my little cousin who I am extremely close too said she was scared when this baby comes along I was going to forget her and only love Baby B but when she met Baby B she completely ditched me but I can't hold it against her because come on, she's totally adorable,right?





... I only finished reading everybody's confessions from last week yesterday morning it was difficult to get through them with everything going on but when I got to the last one I was super impressed with myself. 

... over the weekend my phone just stopped working. It refused to charge and I was in full on panic mode



 I mean... how else would I document my niece's days without my trusty iPhone camera? Luckily it seems to be working at the moment. 

... I watched Bad Neighbors last night with my brother and his fiance and she fell asleep in the cinema but my brother and I was laughing out ridiculously loudly!

... I've always known Zac Efron is a hottie but OMG whenever there's a camera still on his face I literally look like this...




And that's all for today folks! Have an awesome midweek... I'll be popping by your blogs to say hello!

Awww, so cute! And so great that you actually got to spend some time with her and your cousins! When my best friends started having babies it was definitely an eye opener and I have a newfound respect for women who give birth naturally too! Just one question- What are gestational carriers?

Vera said...

I'm so late, sorry about that. Awwww congrats to your family on the new addition! I was an only child and I would wildly jealous of other kids who spoke to my mom because I was afraid she would love them instead of me lol. I was an over thinker.

p.s. boo iphones lol

I'm not a mom, and I never will be, but babies are pretty fascinating. I was riveted by my friend's baby, for the first three years of her life. There's something awe-inspiring about their discovery of the world around them, and I'm so glad you were there to support and be a part of that truly magical moment!
