Yesterday we celebrated our 7th year wedding anniversary. Time sure flies when you are having fun – it feels like just yesterday that we tied the knot and although it doesn’t feel like 7 years, we’ve done so much together. Two kids, 2 dogs and 1 tortoise later our life is very busy now compared to what it was 7 years ago. Gone are the days of spontaneously planning a holiday, partying through the wee hours of the morning or even just watching a movie alone together. Life is so different now, we have to really make a point of planning alone time together. Even celebrating our anniversary is no longer a dinner for 2 affair.
Next up in the Celebrating Baby’s First year series is Cal, who will be celebrating his First birthday on the 29th of October. His Mom Kim has certainly had an adventurous first year with many ups and downs. Kim is a Work at Home Mom (WAHM) making AWESOME felt mobiles (seriously you need to check it out) and also blogs on over at Asher Love.
I picked her brain on her experience over the past year and this is what she had to say.
I’ve been back at work for about 2 months now and it’s incredible to see how much Aidan has developed in such a short time. When I get home some evenings and he greets me with his gorgeous smile, he just looks so much older than he did the day before. He’s already mastered 2 new skills within these few weeks – sitting by himself for a few seconds and rolling over from his back on to his tummy.
So yes, I am definitely missing out on special moments with him but I must admit it … I am actually enjoying being back at the office and these are the reasons why:
Earlier this week I was lucky enough to attend the Clicks Baby event and spent my morning with members of the media and other Blogger Moms. It was held at the awesome Four & Twenty restaurant in Wynberg, which is a magnificent spot – I will definitely be going back there soon.
