WEEK IN THE LIFE OF A MOM #1 | 3 Month Old Baby


Happy Monday! Hope you're all off to a great start of the week! I decided to start a new series on my blog featuring some snaps that I take throughout the week (or weeks, since sometimes I don't post that many things in just one week). I wanted to share here the weekly photos I put up on Instagram, so that I can also catch you up on recent experiences we're having. 

Firstly, let me just say that I adore putting little Victor in this polar bear outfit from H&M. I also had the brown one that they have in store, but that one is now too small for him *weeping*, so I've had to switch to a bigger size. I honestly feel like he is growing up way too fast!


When I sent my hubby to get some quick groceries from Lidl, he came back with these. I'm so glad that tulips are back in store! And I'm so excited for it to finally be spring. Hopefully it won't be long until we get some actual warm weather.


This was my breakfast for a few days in the past few weeks. You know when you discover a new combo that you fall in love with and you keep repeating it over and over again?! Well, this is what happened with this combo. It's the basic avocado toast, except it has red onion sprouts on top - it gives an amazing flavour. I love it! And I had an egg on the side. Perfecto!


Sometimes, as a mom, you just want a moment of peace and quiet. So I'm trying to have a quiet moment to myself in the kitchen... but there's some creepy dude stalking me constantly. Send help! :P


As you may or may not know, I'm currently trying to bring my milk supply up, so I am doing everything you could possibly think of to achieve that. I'm not sure if there's a milk supply booster that I haven't tried - haha! Ok, that's an exaggeration, but really - if you have any suggestions for that, let me know in the comments and I'll give it a try if I haven't already. Here, I was having an oatmeal breakfast with jam on top and a lactation tea on the side. It does seem to help a bit, but I think I'll talk more about increasing milk supply in a separate post one day.


This photo was taken about a month ago - I think - and at that point, Victor was going to bed super early, at around 6 p.m. So I took advantage of this solid bedtime and, while hubby watched him, I got a wild mommy outing - haha! Jk, I actually went shopping on my own for the first time in a very long time. Two hours of walking around the mall! It was glorious!


I think Victor has a new bestie: he loves snuggling this little sheep lovey. Also...you might have noticed in the first photo that his socks are getting waaay too small for him. But I had no choice until the H&M order arrived with some properly sized socks. 


I think it's safe to say from this photo that his gums have probably started bothering him a lot more! Haha! He will chew on anything, but he especially loves his daddy's hand. :))


Often times I spend baby's naptime catching up on some baby reading or trying to find new things I could do to entertain him... #momlife. I'm loving this book to keep up with what's new with his development, what milestones we could expect etc. I've also heard a lot about the Wonder Weeks app, so I got it recently and I'm feeling very intrigued by the leaps that babies have. Victor is definitely having one at the moment. If you have a small baby, I would highly recommend it.

Hope you enjoyed hearing about some things we're currently experiencing! 
Have a great week!
