Happy 6 Months, Sofia-Malou!

Sofia-Malou is exactly 6 months today! Which makes me a not-so newbie mommy – only if I felt that way! I still have no clue what I’m doing. I’m struggling day-in day-out to create a routine for her that works. My excuse is breastfeeding – legitimate or not. She has begun sleeping next to me and cuddling, a thing that I was firmly against…The same with eating – I started with the solids a month ago, even though I originally wanted to wait until today to offer her the first spoon with veggies. Our nurse advised me to give it a try earlier and see what happens. Guess what – she had no problem swallowing the food and was getting ecstatic every...

Starting Over – But Coffee First.

With a cup of coffee in hand I spent a couple of hours wondering around the streets as Philip had to deal with the agency photographer who took the photos of our flat. Photos? Yep, we’ve put our flat for sale! That’s the first time in my adult life that I feel a little bit nostalgic towards a ‘thing’ and get a fluttering feeling in the stomach from the thought of handing the keys to another family. I guess because that’s the flat that became our home, the first home  Sofia entered and lived during the first six months of her life. We’ve actually decided to sell pretty much everything…and start over! Of course with the exception of a few unique home...

My To-Go-Snack – Healthy Muffins with Apple and Walnuts

Recently I’ve been living literally on muffins. Yes, but not the overly greasy and sugary ones, but their healthier home-made alternative (I’m talking both savoury and sweet muffins). They’ve become my to-go snack when I have no time to prepare proper lunch or simply when I don’t feel like wasting time in the kitchen during the day, when I can go out with Sofia or just read a book instead. Quite frankly, it all started out of curiosity whether I would be able to bake something eatable. Turns out – I’m pretty good at it. hehe. Also, despite my tiredness, I’d much rather spend an hour baking (in silence) after everyone has already fallen asleep, so that I can be all by...

Why I Began Vlogging Again

Even though my blog has taken a huge part of my life since I launched it, recently I’ve been feeling less and less content with it. I couldn’t get my head around why I felt this way until I recorded a short video for Sofia and had a look at it. It suddenly hit me – I wanted to be able to talk to you not only in written form, but orally. I wanted to get closer to all of you by giving you a sneak peak behind the curtain. And just like that I began vlogging and capturing on camera all that I’ve been writing for here on ‘Letters to Antoinette’. In today’s vlog (here) I’m going shopping with my...

Situation ‘I Look Like A Hamster’

Two days ago and very unexpectedly I rebooked my flight to Bulgaria. I got a horrible toothache and there was no way I could be able to look after Sofia-Malou 24/7 and deal with the pain. And the worst of all was that I couldn’t take any pain killers – I’m allergic to most plus breastfeeding. Sofia and I made it back and went straight to the dentist the moment we landed. I feel better now and the whole winter wonderland situation is without any doubt a mood booster. The only thing that’s missing is Philip, but he couldn’t join us as now is the busiest time for him work-wise. Oh and good news – I finally went back to vlogging again! I’ve...
