Another week has flown by. Our baby girl is now ten weeks old and she is making more sounds every day and she is definitely finding out that those arms and legs belong to her. I can honestly look at her all day. It’s just so fun watching her discovering new things. I’ve also been spending more time on tummy-time with her. She hates it! But slowly on she is getting better at it. And they say it’s good for her, so we’ll keep practicing. I’m also still reading to her every evening. I keep changing between Dutch and English books! And I’m having a lot of fun with these stories, she definitely starts watching me more and more. It’s possible that she's just fascinated with the voice that tries to do all these different voices but fails miserable. LOL!!

On Tuesday two of my colleagues came to visit. It was nice to see them again and hear how everything is going at work. But it honestly also made me wish my maternity leave could last even longer. LOL! There’s still a big problem with getting enough nurses to keep everything going. But I won’t think about that too much for now! Still 6 weeks to go before I have to go back.

On Thursday my mom and I took Rosanne on her first Zoo trip. It was fun! We walked and talked and enjoyed watching our baby girl sleeping in her stroller. I just love the Zoo. I really hope to be able to go much more when Rosanne is older.

I watched some episodes of Friends and Elementary this week, and I squeezed some reading time in before bed. Hopefully I’ll be able to read a little more next week, I just keep getting distracted a lot! But it was definitely a good week.

  3. Going back to work after maternity leave sucks but it doesn't take long to settle back into a new rhythm. Still, you have more time before you have to worry.
    She's adorable, btw. :)

    1. Aah Thanks Evelina. And you're definitely not a horrible woman. Before having Rosanne, I rarely thought babies were cute too. ;)

  9. Maureen Congratulations on your beautiful baby girl. They are such a blessing πŸ’ž

    Wow, that's a short maternity leave, here in Australia we get 6 months fully paid or 12 months half pay. I didn't realise how lucky we are.

    1. Wow.. that's amazing. Here we have only 12 weeks maternity leave. I still had a lot of vacation days so I added those to my leave, but 15 weeks is definitely the max. But compared to other countries I hear we are lucky too.
      Happy Reading!
