She is here!!!

Our little girl has arrived safe and sound and my world has new colour ever since. This pregnancy was hard and in so many ways, her arrival feels like redemption – like a new morning, after a dark night – like a fresh start.

My dear beautiful, perfect girl,

I have no words for the joy I feel, to finally hold you in my arms, healthy and happy. You were so worth the ride. You complete our family and you are such a blessing. When you were born, spring finally came, the sun has been shining all week, the trees turned green. Today is Easter Sunday, there is new life everywhere now and all of that feels very, very fitting.
Birth, newborn life and shifting into a family of five has had it’s challenges, naturally. But we are so lucky to have you and we are so thankful, cause life looks pretty good with you in it.

You are a dream come true.
I love you always and forever,
Your Mama

P.S: Ihr lieben Mitlesenden, DANKE, dass ihr die Geschichte unserer kleinen Tochter mitverfolgt habt. Danke auch für alles Mitfiebern, Anfeuern und die Vorfreude. Ich mag sehr gerne mehr erzählen  (z.B. ihren Namen, hihi) – wenn du mehr wissen magst, dann schreib mir einfach. (In einem Zeitraum zwischen den nächsten zwei Stunden und den nächsten vier Monaten werde ich garantiert antworten, hehe.)

*37 weeks: tic toc tic toc…

Baby, Baby, Baby.
I know you have some weeks left (almost three!) to prepare for your arrival, but after yet another sleepless night, tossing and turning with pain and discomfort, I am just SO ready for you to make your grande debut early. You know?

But I trust you more than I trust my own impatience.

You know better when the time is right, so stay put for as long as you like. In the meantime, I will soak up every last minute of my last days and weeks of my last pregnancy. I feel very ready to never be pregnant again. The constant stomach aches, the overboard tenderness, the insomnia and aaaall the little pains – I am so ready to leave this all behind. But I know I will look back at this time with nostalgia, knowing it was OUR time, the time when you and I were close constantly and my body did this amazing work of helping to build yours. So I’ll try my best not to spend the rest of this pregnancy impatient, but in wonder and gratitude. I was never so close to the finish line. We’re almost there, Babe. Almost there.
