Happy Birthday Silia!

So, today is my little sister’s birthday! Happy Birthday Silia!
Let me tell you about my little sister Silia.
Silia is the youngest in our family and also the tallest. Growing up in a family with 3 older sisters, was always hard for Silia. From a young age, she would often watch us 3 older ones dress up, wear makeup, dye our hair, high heels and so forth..and now and again, we would find her impersonating those things to a point where she cut her own hair LOL- let’s just say it didn’t end well for Silia LOL
However, having a little sister is always fun. We would always ask her to do things for us and of course, she would only do it if there’s something given to her in return.
She’s at an age and time where the things of the world has become such a big influence. You know, the need to have certain things, keeping up with the latest technology, the need to have the latest pair of jeans or certain style of shoes, the need to be in certain places because that’s where everyone ‘hang out’ etc..
But amongst all these, I want her to know that it’s ok if she doesn’t have the latest IPhone or the latest style in shoes. What matters most is how you choose to live in the world and not be so influenced by the things of the world. You are a bright young woman and a perfect babysitter for my baby! lol
I love you Lia, and although at times we have our differences or sometimes I tell you off, give you growlings and snitch on you; just know that I do it simply because I love you.
I hope all your wishes will come true today!
I will see you later on this week. I’ll take you to McDonald’s and you can have allll the frozen cokes you want! 🙂
Love you Lia xx

30 Weeks Update

Soooo, I wanted to do a quick update on my pregnancy so far.
This week I will be 30 weeks!!!! Yikees!! Where did the time go?! It’s funny how 9 months feels like yonky years but it actually goes by really fast! Soon enough we will be holding our little bundle of joy and we are both excited!!
Ok so here goes:
  • Don’t get me wrong, pregnancy is the most incredible experience a woman can ever go through. However, I wasn’t really prepared for all the changes it was going to do to my body. The pain, the mood swings, the annoying food cravings, the need to vomit in the most random places, the dizziness, the heart burn, the ridiculous weight gain, and the list goes on! But amongst all these changes, I often remind myself that there is a little human being growing inside of me and all pains are definitely worth it!
  • As of now, I can no longer see my feet :/ I mean, my stomach is SO HUGE that when I stand up, I cannot see my toes lol
  • Getting in and out of the car, has become my absolute worst routine during the day! Because I drive to work, I fight with myself every morning to figure out a much more easier way to get in and out of the car.   
  • Let’s talk about sleeping. I used to enjoy sleeping- keyword: ‘used’. Finding a comfortable position to sleep in is a pain on it’s own! I turn from side to side every night to find a comfortable spot and usually lie flat on my back the whole night!
  • Going out places has now become my least favourite thing to do. I used to enjoy getting ready and changing from one outfit to the other. Now, the mere thought of finding something to wear is just too painful. And not to mention, that NOTHING in my closet fits me anymore. The struggle is definitely real!
  • Because I’ve gotten so enormously huge, it is so hard to keep cool in this ridiculous heat!! I now carry a little fan with me everywhere I go. And to be honest, it actually feels like the heat is twice as bad when your pregnant!
  • I now find it hard to pick up things from the ground. I mean, I miss just having to easily bend and pick up items, but now I just look absolutely ridiculous in trying; let alone the pain of it! So now, I just give up and usually get my husband to do it for me lol
  • Those baby kicks. I loooooove having to feel her kick. It’s the coolest feeling ever and in fact; I think it’s the best part during pregnancy. But sometimes those kicks comes so hard; that she kicks right in my bladder causing me to rush to the bathroom!
  • I can no longer shave my legs nor wear shoes with laces or straps. Long dresses and leggings has officially become my new best friends and jandals and flats is my new thing now :/
  •        I often find myself hungry in the middle of night. Or even worse, in the early hours of the morning!! I don’t know if it’s the baby or just me? LOL
  • My cravings. In my first couple of weeks of pregnancy, all I can eat was cold oranges. Then it went to watermelon and now pineapples! I’m just happy that it’s not some weird and bizarre cravings that I know most women have! 
     As I mentioned earlier, all these changes are definitely worth it. If it by means to bring forth another life to this earth, then I am all for it! I am excited for the next couple of weeks and to finally meet our baby girl.
