Bad night last night.

Sooooo restless and just crying so much when I take him off the breast….like he’s starving and not been feeding for ten hours!!!

Or he has stomach pains.

Or he’s throwing a tantrum because he has the Anastassiou naughty genes!

Or he just wants to be close to the boobie. On the boobie.

He needs the boobie!!!

While this is all very distressing for me and cause for me to continuously be googling symptoms and forums to see or try to decipher whats going on…and I am just sooooo tired…you have to wonder what he will become with this constant boob-ness.

Boob fetish?

Ladies man?

Mama’s boy?

I tell you something…as much as he likes to be close to the boobie. On the boobie. Need the boobie…I will not be doing this…

365 ONE: day 295…Thoughts with NYC

Day 295: October 29th, 2012 = COMPLETE!!!!!!

Cardio was = Swaying with the baby

Dance of the Day was = TV music

Improvised Acting Video I uploaded to my other blog was = “Bouncey Bounce”

My thoughts are with everyone back in the USA, more specifically, on the East Coast, with this impending Hurricane Sandy approaching. I am watching the news as I write this and the eye of the storm is 30 miles now only from the coast of NJ.

I never watch the news…no seriously, I never watch the news…it’s too depressing. And manipulative. I just can’t. I know people think I am crazy to not be current and up to date and in the know…but if its something so important I get told anyway.

But I have CNN on in the background right now as my hubby is in NYC, along with all my good friends up and down the East Coast…so it’s off and on the TV.

We hope everything and everyone will be ok.

For some reason I have missed it again and poor Stuart gets the brunt. Last time it was a hurricane I think that hit NYC and I was again out of the country, but Stuart’s flight was cancelled, so he had to deal with that and not being able to get to work.

When I think about it, I also missed the earthquake that hit Greece as I was out of the country, but my poor mum and brother got it.

I hope this doesn’t mean by the laws of karma that I get something later on….knock on wood!

Anyway….me and the little bubby are sending our love and good wishes your way USA.

365 ONE: day 294…One Month Today!

Day 294: October 28th, 2012 = COMPLETE!!!!!!

Cardio was = Walking

Dance of the Day was = new Robbie Williams song on X Factor

Improvised Acting Video I uploaded to my other blog was = “Happy One Month”

Anything to Note =

Today our little boy is ONE MONTH OLD!!

We celebrated his one month birthday with a candle in a creme caramel 🙂

That we bought from the store.

That I ate haha!

It is my video upload for today of course.

I would like to say that today, on his one month birthday, Alexaki was an angel and model baby…but that would be a lie. He has been quite the restless one and I am only getting to write this as my mum is holding him and trying to calm him down next to me.

He won’t stop crying.

Which in turn has made me cry off and on today with him.

And my boobs hurt…because he appears to be constantly hungry…and so after trying a million other things to stop him crying of course the boob comes out to see if that will stop him.

And it does.

For five seconds.

I know a lot of mothers right now would be shaking their heads with the “I have been there” nod reading this and all my other posts this past month…but unfortunately the knowing that everyone has been through this and understands doesn’t make it better really because I still have to go through it. I know it’s nice to know that others have gone through the all night and day crying and restlessness, the worry, but that doesn’t stop me from worrying.

It’s a mother’s individual challenge.

It’s a mother’s individual journey.

My question is…what if I am still in denial that I am a mother??

I repeatedly find myself saying “mummy’s here” over and over as I bounce around to soothe him…and I just don’t believe it!

And I don’t feel like a very good mother right now, I’m not going to lie. His cry is just so heartbreaking. It feels like he may have some stomach issues. And perhaps I am just not providing him with enough milk. I just don’t know.

You just don’t know what each cry means.

I just know that my cry is because that’s how I feel…heartbroken, that he has stomach issues that I caused, and that I may be starving him with my lack of supply or something.

I don’t know.

You don’t know.

You just worry.

And he is only one month old!!!!

Happy one month little one. I love you so much no matter what!


365 ONE: day 293…Mummy = Boob

Day 293: October 27th, 2012 = COMPLETE!!!!!!

Cardio was = Swaying and Walking with the little monkey

Dance of the Day was = “You Are My Sunshine” sung by me

Improvised Acting Video I uploaded to my other blog was = “Dad Asleep on Shoulder”

Anything to Note =

Weaning the little one off the soya formula as my antibiotics are over and hopefully left my system, or on their way out, and hopefully I am not in need of more despite the pain in my boobs 😦

So today we are down to only two soya formula supplements after breast feeding and tomorrow will be down to one….and then it’s only boobie for a little bit to see how it goes and if we need to supplement with regular formula.

So it’s been a lot of boob boob boob.

I feel like the little one is just having a ball! Milk with that…

20121027-231536.jpg

My poor little boobies 😦 Or should I say my poor BIG boobies haha!!

I mean I always had big boobies but now they are just BIG-ger! And it’s hilarious when I look down at the tiny teeny little boy feeding who’s just so teeny tiny compared to my big boobie! Haha!

I swear he can smell me or something. He was sleeping in his Moses basket and I leaned in for a second and his eyes shot open and he looked right at me! It was hilarious!! I have to creep around!

Annoyingly though I become the bad guy…I get all the crying when he is hungry and the restlessness for the want of the boobie. There is no fun time with me. He gets to be all cutesie and happy times with my parents, his grandparents, but with mummy it’s all boob boob boob. And crying if he doesn’t get it, if he wakes and it’s not immediately there…no good morning….no hello mummy. Just boob!
