365 Self-Portrait Project (week 19)

This week was pretty much normal. I got a few headaches and aches here and there in general. It’s because I do not sleep like I used to… (oh well). Our Sleeping Beauty is really good, though. I shouldn’t complain.


She likes to be held. A LOT. It’s pretty hard to be a walking swing chair for her with my sore back. Sometimes I feel like I just want to sit and scream it hurts so bad… .

(for those who don’t know: I had a very serious back injury several years ago)

It didn’t bother me with our No 1. She wasn’t very needy. This one is all about hugging, kissing and sleeping in our arms.


We visited a wonderful place on Mother’s Day. I couldn’t have gotten better flowers to celebrate it πŸ™‚



On Monday we had started the day very early. Our No 2 woke up around 6am and she soon went back to sleep but not me. I stayed up just to be able to enjoy the quiet time in front of the computer and a big cup of tea before everybody gets up.

At least during those hours when I’m up with the baby I have the time to blog and play with my pictures!Β 


Before I even started the day, during one of the nightly feedings I created this:

This is one of the self-portraits I had posted last week so I knew I actually am not done with Tuesday’s self-portrait. I was really tired that day as we had a few wake ups that night what usually doesn’t happen.

I dragged myself to do the laundry and while doing it I had the most miserable expressions on my face, ever πŸ˜‰ I was just tired. Really tired.

After I took this picture I had a different idea for it and I had decided not to post it until I create what I really had in mind but later I changed my mind and here we go. Me pretending that I’m calm and have everything under control. [totally staged photo!!!] πŸ˜‰


Bath day and headache day. Lovely husband took care of the kids while I lied down for a nap. First I thought I am not going to be able to fall asleep, then I heard a terrible noise like something JUST GOT BROKEN and I knew I had to get up and see what’s going on and clean the mess…, but I couldn’t get up I was so tired. A few minutes after I was sound asleep.

When I got up there was a mess to clean up, of course. Our No 1 had gotten into a potted plant and broke the pot and there was a soil all over the kitchen floor which of course my husband tried to cleanΒ  but he is not good at that at all πŸ˜‰

“Hello World”

She is finally awake for longer periods and more often. She still sleeps a lot but when she doesn’t she smiles and follows us with her eyes and makes the funniest sounds ever. She is totally different from our No 1!

I struggled with those pictures like crazy. Most of my selfies I have taken with 35mm lens. I think I haven’t taken a single self-portrait with my wide angle/macro cap which used with 18-55mm makes the camera really heavy, at least too heavy to hold it in one hand while twisting it and trying to take a self-portrait.

That’s why I look a little troubled on those pictures below πŸ˜‰

I will not post today’s photo in here as I really don’t feel like taking one right now but I want to be done with this post as soon as possible.

Anyway, I hope you have a great weekend, my friends!

Hugs from my tired corner!

“Meow” means Kitty – and the story behind it

Cat the Stranger – that’s how I call him. Homeless or just lost. Who knows. He looks like he’s been shaved by some kids just for fun. My husband says he looks normal. I mean, that the haircut looks normal. I don’t think so. He acts like he used to be domestic.

The first time I saw his walking towards me I ran, scared, back to our apartment. He looked so wild. He was waving his tail and meowing SO LOUD. After a while I got used to him and I let him get closer. I have no idea if he carriers some diseases so I won’t let my daughter to touch him or get very close. He is very friendly guy. It’s been about 3 days since we first heard him. He comes around our door about dinner time. Our daughter gets so excited when she sees him πŸ™‚

Thanks to that kitty she finally understood that when we say: “meow” it means “kitty”. I’ve gone through books with her pointing and cats, and saying “meow” every single time, but yesterday when she saw that cat and heard him you could see that “I GOT IT” face! It was sooo funny! Now she says “meow” every single time she sees a picture of a cat.

It’s really great to be able to witness all those little steps she takes to understand the world around her. It’s even more beautiful to observe how she does that, what helps her, and when it happens!

I am not a cat person. If I was that cat would’ve been ours already. I like cats but I hate that they need that litter stuff, and they poop at the house, and that they aren’t so lovey dovey… which for me is the main point you have a pet at the house πŸ™‚ On the other hand I don’t want him to go to a shelter where he might go pretty soon if he won’t go away. He looks so cute and friendly… and… so neglected. I wish I could do something for him…. .
