So overwhelmed, so happy, so scared, so proud, so overwhelmed. So f*cking happy.
Exactly 1 year ago I announced that we were expecting another human to join this family.
This little human is now my 6 month old best friend. My Indy. And now she’s laying right next to me, sleeping.
Female bodies are so freaking amazing.❤️
Such a crazy yet beautiful idea, knowing that these two little girls that will soon grow into two women, will always have each other, for the rest of their lives🙌🏼.
Secretly snapped this shot 2 hours ago, because I knew this wouldn’t last longer than 5 minutes🤣. It lasted about 3 before Indy started pulling her hair and wanting to rip the pages😂. Bless Zinnia’s heart and patience💛.
@instagram took the orignal photo down because it has been reported. My nipple wasn’t showing.
It was a cute squished mouth of my baby who was in a milk coma and a part of my areola (skin pigmentation around the nipple) showing.
Such a sad reality that all male nipples are allowed, and female nipples are allowed on this platform as long as they’ve been presented in a sexual manner. But nipples that are functioning as nature intended them to are reported and removed.
So sad. So f*cking sad. #normalizebreastfeeding 💔
I’m exhausted and nauteous while publishing this post and writing this caption.. because it has been such a learning experience, this day.
Hubs is away for the weekend so I decided to go to the city center for an afternoon with my mom and my 2 girls. But little did I know, I was in for quite a few tests today😂.
The day started off quite peacefully: Indy waking up at 8AM, and getting ready to nap around 10AM; her morninb-naps have always been a no-failer, she always (ALWAYS) sleeps at least 1-2 hours every morning. But today she decided that 15 minutes would do (which obviously wouldn’t “do”). But okay fine, I decided to take a shower and get ready to leave and to get Zinnia ready bc we wanted to head out with the bus. Checked the times: Damnit, we just missed it, so we’ll have to wait another 30 minutes.
We got at the bus stop 5 minutes early, but after 15 minutes of waiting we concluded that this bus jus wasn’t planning on showing up. So we decided to wait another 15 minutes (30 min. in total) for the next one.
We arrived in the city center a bit later and Indy decided to drift off (probably out of pure exhaustion). But woke up crying 15 minutes later.
We had a fun day (without naps) and decided to get back on the bus bc we were exhausted and just wanted to get home (Indy was totally over it too). 1 minute before arriving home, my mom panicked because she thought she forgot the keys, which resulted in me panick-calling the place where we had lunch and us searching my mom’s stuff for the keys. But they were just attached to another bag.
We got home, I breastfed Indy as she drifted off, but she still refused to stay asleep, so I let her play on her mat where she decided to throw up some prune puree from earlier.
I decided to give her a shower as an attempt to finally get her to sleep, but during that shower Zinnia hysterically screamed my name twice. The first time because she pooped and the second time because she dropped “her” (read: my old) iPhone in the toilet.
I told her to just please take a shower and go to bed. I helped her get ready for bed and continued with Indy. (cont. in comments😂)
🌼Zinnia, my first born child that carries the name of a flower, has been picking flowers for me since the day she could walk. Now, 7 years later, she still does.
I’m so proud of her and am so privileged to have her as my daughter. That’s all, just needed to share that with the world today.
Now something totally else: I’ll be cleaning up my followers. All followers that haven’t engaged (liked/commented) with any of my last 50 posts, will be deleted/blocked automatically by an app that I use to do this. If you want to be “whitelisted” (not blocked), make sure to leave a like or comment on any of my latest posts. Thanks for understanding.💛
Happy 7th birthday my first love - this is the first birthday photo where I’m not carrying you on my hip and I honestly don’t know how to feel about that😭.
But my baby, please stay as sweet, loving, caring, compassionate, free spirited and the true gemini that you are. Thank you for blessing me with your love.
You changed me for the better 7 years ago and I’m so glad you did.
I love you🧡✨.
