**Special thanks to Rosetta Ann Photography for capturing the precious moments.**
I know my blog has been really slow for the last 7 months. (For the new readers, here’s why)
I think my loyal readers will be happy today that I am posting something personal after a very long time. Keep on reading and scrolling for my story and some more pictures.
My initial plan was to schedule some articles & videos before my due date. But I went to labor 5 weeks early leaving most of my works pending.
When I was in labor, my thoughts should have been centered on the well-being of my child but my first thought was- “I have at least 50 products pending reviews!” I was almost hysteric that I won’t be able to meet the deadlines and work commitments I had made with various companies.
Even after her birth I felt guilty. The uncertainty of my work, the sleepless nights with the premature baby, the unwanted weight gain and my same old chronic pain made my days longer and nights darker. I was depressed & angry at everything and everyone around me.
Gradually I overcame the dark feelings and learnt to manage the baby in spite of my difficulties. I have to say I am still learning the ways of motherhood, but it’s always a learning process, isn’t it?
Right now I am the heaviest I have ever been…. my clothes do not fit anymore and whenever I try to put on something old (or new) I feel like screaming & crying.
I am also really tired, hurting 24/7 and only a good amount of concealer can hide out the under eye circle. (Thank God for Clé de Peau Beauté!)
THINGS I HAVE LEARNT SO FAR….
- You can’t control everything, specially when you have a little one.
- Babies are small but they require your 100% energy & effort, sometimes even your 100% won’t be enough!
- Time management is everything!
- Coffee is going to be your best friend.
- At the end of the day; all the sleeplessness, tiredness, pain and trouble is going to fade away when your child looks into your eyes and gives a big heart warming smile.
Here is the best part of the whole experience:
My daughter is 7 months old now and she is getting more and more interactive day by day. I can’t ignore the fact how happy she makes me feel even though my shoulder and arms hurt like hell when I am holding her.
Truth to be told, You won’t know your true strength & endurance before having a child. I am discovering so many things about myself everyday and these are making me a stronger person.
I can’t say I am the best in everything, but I am the better version of old me!
Now get ready to enjoy the pictures!
QUICK DETAILS ABOUT THE OUTFIT(S):
My main focus behind picking the outfit was comfort. For my girl this coral dress was perfect, as it’s really soft and breathable. For me, I chose comfort with style. I was looking for a white top which would be forgiving to my *midsection*. Paired with the colorful harem pant and the vintage statement necklace, I found my match!
Baby dress: H&M
My top: Jersey Top in White (H&M)
Bottom: Harem Pants in Blue (Amazon and Here)
Necklace: Freedom Statement Necklace in Navy (Happiness Boutique)

So long apu! Missed your posts. She’s a cutie-pie Mashallah! Dua for you and the baby!
Thank you so much Silvee! <3
Whenever you get this sorts of chance, don’t ever forget to feel the glory of a sunny day ( like this ), the majesty of love or the strength of kindness. It’s amazing, isn’t it? …..and especially when Manha Moni is with you ……
Share your fun with others, that a good, purposeful life doesn’t exclude joy and laughter; it embraces them.
And remind yourself that happiness can most easily be found in the simplest of things. That humor can make the responsibility of being an adult easier to assume. Keep the gift of your optimism and curiosity alive and well. For to remain curious and hopeful is to never grow old.
Most importantly, as you continue to make your wonderful way in the world with youthful exuberance, remember always how much I love you.
And as well , know that every waking moment of the day your proud Mom has a heart filled with love and joy and unyielding admiration for the beautiful soul you have already become and for the beautiful joys you bring to the world, today and always.
Credit goes to YOU for the sense of your CHOICE of Dress and the Beautiful Necklace ( all the items are really catchy and attractive ) and the photographer ( Rosetta Ann ) really worked very nicely with her clicks to come up with these beautiful outcome . It’s praiseworthy …..
Thank you abbu!
You are more lovely than ever, Sifa! I’m so glad you have learned to prioritize these priceless moments with your baby over any other enterprise. They are so fleeting and can’t return except in the memories you are making now. Enjoy!
