New addition

So it's been some time since I wrote in my blog.
We're a year further and my baby is one now going on two in two months and my big girl is 6.
We've been blessed with an addition to the family: a new baby girl who's name is Nevaeh-Divine.

I'm still on maternity leave at the moment but I'm not quite sure when I will go back to work or whether I will go back at all so for now I'm a SAHM again. I'm enjoying this a lot although there have been some challenging times mainly because it's not always easy to take care of two children under two.

It's also a challenge in a positive way to be a housewife and fulltime mom. It’s really teaching me a lot.
Patience, flexibility, creativity. I’m learning not to freak out when things don’t go as planned and to overcome and cope with difficult situations. I’ve learned that the difficult times won’t last forever. For instance when they all cry at the same time, there will always be another moment where they are all happy and content and things are good and peaceful.
Having to take care of three children certainly makes you grow as a person and as a woman. And I’m really grateful as well to be so rich in children.

I only had to do it for 4 weeks on my own now because the baby was born in Suriname South America and I had the help of my mother and husband for the first weeks.
Little by little it's getting easier. Since the car is fixed, hubby brings my eldest daughter Ixora to school and picks her up before he's off to work so luckily I don't have to worry about that part. Because for a while I had to take her with public transport on some days and collect her by public transport every day with baby and toddler.
Praise God that time is over even if by Gods grace it was pretty manageable most of the time .But it did take up quite some time and now I can just spend some time at home and do some cleaning and stuff.
I also get a lot of help from my six year old -when she is back from school -who is trying to soothe the baby when the baby and toddler need my attention at the same time. She's starting to get pretty good at it and loves her baby sister to pieces.
I'm really proud of her and grateful as well.
Overall I really feel so blessed and am so happy with my wonderful girls

Children are a heritage from the LORD, the fruit of the womb a reward. Psalm 127 : 3.

Glory to the Lord !!

It's Summer time / Giveaway (closed)

It’s officially Summer here in Ireland, even though most of the time  it is hard to see it when you look outside. There are days when there have been some sunny spells but the sun has been hiding behind dark clouds on most of those days as well. This week it's supposed to be a good week weather wise.  A few weeks ago the sun was shining since the morning and after dropping the two older girls at school, I decided to take Nevaeh for a walk to the park close by and to feed the ducks. On the way to the park the sun was so much in my eyes that I decided to stop at the Dunnes Stores and get sun glasses. Since Nevaeh was so interested in mine I got her some too. Mini mouse ones. She loves them. The week after, it was the turn for the older girls to get sun glasses. Hello Kitty ones for Yovannah. And pink, sparkly ones for Ixora. They really love their sun glasses and wear them on sunny days.

Since this post is post nr. 60 of my blog I decided to do a little give away.

Mummy, I need your 'pookie'

It’s World Breastfeeding Week from August 1st to August 7th 2013 and this year’s theme is Breastfeeding Support: Close to Mothers. You can read more about it on The focus is on community support, particularly in the form of peer-to-peer support.
To show support for World Breastfeeding Week, the Irish Parenting Bloggers group is holding a blog march about varied breastfeeding experiences, including experiences with breastfeeding support in Ireland. This inspired me to write a post about breastfeeding as well.

My breast feeding journey
When I was pregnant with my first child, I decided that it would be a great idea to combine breast- and bottle feeding. But in the hospital they convinced me how healthy and important it was to breastfeed exclusively and then I decided to go that road. I got a breast pump to express milk so my baby could get a bottle with breast milk when I was out and about or for the scarce times that I would leave her in the care of h…
