Introducing my little prince

Hello all,

I'm happy to announce that I am now a mommy to a little boy named Omar which in Arabic means the first born.I gave birth to him a month ago and haven't sat still since. I was under the impression that labour was the hard bit till I experienced the first few weeks of sleepless nights, sore boobies and the endless changing of nappies which left me with No time for anything else. My dad has nicknamed me 'Miss No Time 'for truly I live up to it these days :) I'm blessed to have my mum, dad and both grandmas fly in to help me in this adjusting period.

Labour now seems like a walk in the park which I assure you wasn't.I had to be induced because my waters broke before I dilated which had me in the labour theatre for 24 hours (on official papers they said 10, I don't know how they calculate labour but I know right then it seemed like forever). Ofcourse when bubby arrived , the pain of that excruciating long labour was lifted as they placed him in my arms, don't all mummies say the same thing. The feeling is surreal!

This new mummy wishes she had more time to blog and dilly dally on the internet but I now understand the meaning of 'precious time" :)Hope to get back into a routine soon enough to visit some of my favourite blogs. Thank you to you girls who remembered me and sent me emails. I apologize for not replying to them but I hope these pictures of my little prince will make up for it. Do Enjoy.

Till next time,
Much Mommy Love,

He is adorable Adla!! Congratulations with your beautiful son!

All that you write is so familiar to me. When my first was born I simply didn't understand how some people managed to raise two children or more! And I wondered (and still do hehehe) what was I doing when we didn't have kids, apart from work?
Try to enjoy him though, because it all goes quickly. I remember well that I considered the first 3 months to be the toughest. After that every one was getting used to each other and my baby could play and that made her much much more happy.
Just try to relax and don't over work yourself. Blogging will come in due time. I won't go anywhere, but will patiently wait till you have time again to write about your beautiful prince. Hugs LiLi

Congratulations Adla and hubby! Omar is so adorable! I forgot how they have these cute skinny legs when they are born! Leroy has that exact same green play mat thing (can't remember what they are called? the green one that has toys that dangle down, and is shaped like he is inside a flower). Oh, lol, one thing you might notice is, "placenta brain" doesn't go away in a hurry... Leroy's nearly 5 and I still have it!!!
Yes, the first few months (at least, if not more) will be a blur but honestly it does get easier and lots more fun. It's great that family can and do help you.
Don't stress about blogging, you have a beautiful little boy to dote on! Congratulations!

Omar is a lovely name and so meaningful. Be easy on yourself,Sweetie and rest when he rests. Savor this magical time in your lives because it passes to quickly. Remember that it takes time to "wake up" again with all the lack of sleep~but in time he'll get on his schedule.
We'll all be here thinking of you so don't worry about blogging rigt now. Just post some pics now and again~such a wonderful treat to "meet" your Little Prince.
