Sometimes there are things in life that turn everything upside down. Major changes that have such an impact that you completely switch your priorities. For example a change like becoming a mother.
And that’s exactly what I became on October 23, 2014 after 12 hours of induced labor. It was tough, but the reward so worth it: a beautiful baby girl, Eliza. Immediately I was madly in love with her, and in the hours, days, weeks and months after her birth, I only fell more and more in love. What a special experience to love someone so unconditionally.
And now she’s 4 months old already. She’s doing so great, growing fast, and she’s cheerful almost all the time. Every cliche on motherhood is true. Like time going so fast. I try to fully enjoy every moment with her. Another cliche is that you have little to no time for anything else but the baby. It’s a bit of a struggle to find time to work on things for Jeau& when there’s a baby that needs my attention. That’s why it’s been a bit quiet over here. I really need to update my portfolio with new work and write a couple of posts for the blog. I will, I promise. Just have a little patience with this new momma. 😉
For various reasons I’m not going to post a lot of pictures of Eliza on my website. Even though I really love mom blogs with pretty photos of cute babies and children. I’ve decided against it. I do post a lot of her photos on my private Instagram account though. I accept followers that I know personally or trust to be real and genuinely interested. So no fake accounts and spammers.
Well, I think this is it for an update on my life for now. And ok, here’s just one pic of Eliza for you guys, from right after birth.
