I hate being late. In my old life I used to be rather 15 minutes early than 5 minutes late. That’s the thing that was driving me crazy for the first 5 months of Eric’s life -nothing can be planned any more.

10 things I miss about my old life

There are a lot of things I used to love, which I don’t have any more:

Rock climbing – I miss it the most. It gave me this incredible sense of achievement, something I don’t seem to get out of anything I do these days.

Baby conspiracy

Hey, you’re new! I love new people, welcome. You may want to subscribe to Baby-Log via RSS feed or via email. Thanks for visiting!Yes, baby conspiracy is the right name for this phenomenon. I believe that all the people in the world can be divided into two groups – those who have kids and those […]

Baby Sling

Baby slings are great. I got mine from my brother’s girlfriend, she gave me a baby-sling as a present when Eric was born. At first when I tried to fit him there he resisted and I almost gave up on it, but later I tried another couple of times and he got used to it.

First tooth

I barely noticed Eric’s first pair of teeth. He wasn’t behaving any differently; the only unusual thing was pink spots on his cheeks. Just before he turned 6 months, one day I was feeding him, when he grabbed my finger, pulled it into his mouth and I felt something sharp poking me – that was […]

I have said more than once that nothing comes easy to me. For a month now (starting at 6 months) we have been trying to get Eric on solids and what can I say – it wasn’t a

New phase in sleeping

Ever since he was born this jiggling motion worked every time, it relaxed him and eventually he would node off. The only thing I was worried about – what will happen when he’s too heavy for me to lift and rock, because he is a big baby. That worked beautifully for the first 6 months – but since yesterday it stopped. He screams and arches his back when Rob or I are trying this old technique on him. I guess he is telling us – I have grown out of that baby stuff :).
