So this is it, 2 months after giving birth, I finally had the courage to do my first post-pregnancy OOTD! At first I was like what am I thinking doing an ootd now? I was really hesitant to do this post. I am still at least a good 4 kilos/ 8 pounds away from the weight I want to be, but then I thought, what the heck, I want to share this no matter what. It's who I am now and I shouldn't feel ashamed or any pressure to lose all the weight in such little time. Dieting isn't a top priority in my life, it never was and never will be specially now that I am breastfeeding my baby boy and he needs mommy to stay healthy so he can get all the good nutrients. I eat very healthy, but unfortunately I have little time to exercise so the best I can do now is go for walks to the park with the kids, running after my daughter, doing chores around the house and let's not forget going up and down the million stairs in my home. At the end of the day I am exhausted and last thing I want to do is push ups and sit ups. I don't fit in my clothes the way I used to " yet", but it feels darn good to wear some of my pre-pregnancy clothes again! David is gaining weight rapidly, smiling all the time and he's already sleeping through the night, I'm such a proud mama!
I have been to Niagara Falls more times than I can count. Seriously guys, it's one of those places that I never get tired of visiting specially now living near Toronto. We recently did a small trip there and I couldn't resist on sharing some beautiful shots of the falls, they are absolutely breathtaking both during the day and at night. I love seeing them at night when they shine different color lights on the falls.
If you visit the province of Ontario or the state of New York, you must go to Niagara Falls, just make sure that you visit the Canadian side for a better view of the falls due to their position across the Niagara River, you can see all three of the falls, the American, Bridal Veil and Horseshoe. Truly one of the wonders of the world!
I am back!!! Oh my goodness you guys... I've been wanting to write this post for a while now! Our baby boy David Gabriel, has arrived and we couldn't be happier!
After nine long months, struggling with severe nausea, rib pains, exhaustion, restless legs, backache, lack of sleep, a few trips to the hospital... I am so happy that our little bundle of joy is here with us! My heart is bursting with happiness.
Born right on the due date, April 15th @ 23:59. Everything went smoothly, thanks to my amazing husband that was by my side every second of it, our awesome Dr. and the wonderful nurses at the Oakville Hospital. We couldn't be happier and Sofia is thrilled with her baby brother.
Can't believe I only pushed for 8 minutes and had baby in my arms.
It's been really busy with a newborn at home and a 3 year old and that is why I won't be posting very often for a while now, but I will do my very best to be back soon. Meanwhile I wanted to share with you some of my maternity photos and our new family member. He is a little angel, eats a lot and is a good sleeper already. We are very lucky!
I really recommend every woman to take some maternity photos while pregnant, sometimes all you need is a good camera and good lighting. This pregnancy was really hard on me, I was pretty much sick all the time and I wasn't feeling my best for pictures, but I really didn't want to miss the opportunity of taking some great belly shots.
I will keep you all posted and hopefully will soon return with new posts. I got so many awesome treats from my dear husband lately, one of them is a gorgeous Guess bag and tons of beauty products for mommy to enjoy. I really gotta share it with you all.
Don't forget to follow me on Instagram and Facebook. Much love from our family to all of you
