unbelievable

Another day, another death in the family. This time the sudden and shocking departure of one of my georgian cousins. (We weren't particularly close because of the geography thing, but I liked him well enough and I am devastated for his family). At this rate I will be relativeless by February.

Similarly an (allegedly) innocent remark by Z when he was talking with meabout him going out on the 19th and mentioned how 'a change of scene might be beneficial' was interpreted by me as him saying that he views me and the baby as some kind of emotional burden and sent me into floods of tears. He says he didn't mean anything like that by it and I believe him because the man doesn't have a malicious bone in his body, but still how would you have interpreted that?

(Hint for mens: 'i know it's your hormones' is another really stupid thing to say, and best avoided)

All in all it's been an emotionally exhausting day and between them all my body feels knocked for a loop and I'm kitten-weak again.

So alot of things are a bit meh but hey my baby is still excellent and hilarious and thanks to his milk addiction has now acquired an impressive double chin, and a round little potbelly to sit atop his skinny frog legs. He dreams intensely and chirrups to himself in his sleep.

This is another sign of Matei's disobedience- I distinctly remembered ordering luscious, nibblable thighs.

I really look forward to having you visit. :)

I know this is all belated and everything, but this is the first time I've logged into LJ in 2008, so Nina, congratulations to you and Z on the birth of little Matei, may he have a healthy, happy life. Welcome to the world kid.

You could of course have squeezed him out a few days earlier and had a Sagittarius baby, but I'm guessing you really don't give two hoots what birthsign he was born under, and quite right too. Congratulations again.
(I am assured by my friends who are parents that the whole deranged emotions thingy fades somewhat after the first 3 months, either that or you're just used to the sheer unpredictablity of everything by then)

Thank you. :)

You're right - I didn't particularly care what star sign he would be although I would have welcomed a Sagittarius child because it would have meant an earlier end to the pregnancy. Still, this one is lovely too.

Deranged emotions are already settling down a little, and we are all thankful for that.

Oh, what a strange intense time for you. I hope there's no more bad news.

Me too. Although at least now I'm back in focused combat mode rather than curled up and weeping.

Have just stumbled across you via suzylou's LJ and wondered if it would be ok to add you? I gave birth to a baby boy at the end of August and can identify with so much of your entries on new parenthood!! Also little smurf is one of my names for the munchkin...it's that curled up thing they do when you pick them up after they've just woken up! :) Feel free to add me back if you're interested in life 4 months down the line!

PS congratulations :)

Wow, 4 months! What an unimaginably grown child. At 10 days old it feels like the baby is already more mature, I can't wait to see all the stunts he'll be pulling 4 months from now.

Please feel free to add me, I like meeting new peoples.

The changes you are about to witness in the coming months are mindblowing! It's like a watching a beautiful flower open more and more each day :)

Fab, off to add you now.

You've been through an emotional wringer. I am sorry for all this.

I'll tell you now, when you feel back on your feet physically, a half hour out, by yourself, no baby, will seem like heaven. And it doesn't mean that you find Z or Matei are emotional burdens. You'll feel recharged.
I'll also tell you that I know this to be true for dads also, sitting here years later, but I had the exact same convo with G. and the exact same reaction.

You speak truly. Things are much calmer over here today.
