Where does the time go? 9 months old!

Almost the last day of holiday with grandparents in Czech Republic and going back home. And little Canito is 9 months old! Every month I say the same thing and this time it is not going to be different – I cannot believe it, time simply flies. However, this month has been different for me, for us. Our little monkey has started to do lot of new things, move much more and I have to get ready to work. Sadly. I am struggling a lot with this idea, with this fact. We are flying tomorrow back home and this is in my head as a big ghost. I am trying to take it from positive side, but… There is huge but for me. I have became mum and it is my “lovely job” now. I have done my career, I have reached a lot already and now I have the most important “job”. I am sure that almost every new mum has to struggle with that and I am wondering how did they do it?! How did they leave such a small baby?! πŸ™‚ I am not going to pretend to be all “cool” about it. I am truly not and I am really sad. I have just seen him starting to crawl backwards, we have to do excercises as he needs to improve some movements as a premature baby, he is trying to repeat first words and he is “talking” more and more… During our holiday surprise has appeared! πŸ™‚ Two teeth are smiling to us! Two little ones has made him so grumpy πŸ˜€ Little Canito has started as well eat more! Different textures and new tastes will appear in blog soon πŸ™‚


This month we have improved sleeping. We are still waking up around 5 AM, however after his first bottle of the day, he falls asleep again. And our naps during the day? I have to say it is improved – a lot! I am so proud of him, it has taken us a while. But we have nice regime of naps – one (sometimes two) in the morning and then after lunch, more or less around an hour. Sometimes even longer. We are now moving as well a bit bed time, however it seems it will take a while as little Canito still needs to sleep a lot.


And now, suddenly, my time to go back to work. Our aupair is arriving this week from Mexico, so hopefully everything will go well… I am full emotions! Guilt, fear, and feeling overwhelmed… But happy that our little one is healthy and happy baby! So I can call myself coctail of emotions right now πŸ™‚


Good night to everyone!

    1. Hello Rhonda! Thank you so much for your message! I am absolutely in love with our little one and enjoying being mum so much. Wow, that’s great. How are you enjoying being grandma? Our little Canito is Demian, and Canito is just nickname. Thank you, I will tell him about his smile, I think he is already flirting πŸ˜‰

  2. Oh it’s the hardest thing to go back to work, I remember it clearly. I was lucky and Joshii was slightly older at one year and 2 weeks. But my goodness it was hard my heart just ached. Now my little one is 3 and loves nursery. But with this ew little baby (soon to be expected) we are planning an au pair as well. Let me know how you find the au pair.
    But you will get through it, just appreciate every moment you have with your child, and weekends/evenings and afternoons becomes even more special. Xxx

    1. Thank you very much for sharing your experience! My head is spinning, to be honest 😁 I am sure, it’s going to settle somehow and with time… Just the first experience is a bit scary! ☺️ and I am happy to hear that your little one loves nursery! And congratulations to the expected one. Girl or boy? πŸ˜‰
      I will definitely let you know ☺️I am curious, how it’s going to be life with aupair…

      1. Another boy, can’t wait now only few weeks to go. I think an au pair can be very beneficial both for Canito and you as a family. (My friends who got au pairs loves it)
        Just make sure the au pair takes him out to baby things to do. Are you going to work full time xx

      2. Good luck! I am sure, he will arrive faster than you can imagine. Time really flies πŸ˜‰ We have to figure out everything. I hope it’s going to be fine. I am going to work 4-day week with one day at home, so basically 3 days in the office at the beginning ☺️
