I am becoming an emotional wreck! Last week I was emotional because my little baby somehow overnight has changed in to a big baby (I still cannot bring myself to call her a toddler!). This week I am a total emotional mess because it is my last week of maternity leave which means settling sessions at the nursery and trying to stop ignoring the fact that I am going back to work on Monday ! 

 I just have left Chloe at the nursery on her own for longer than 15 minutes (we started settling in session last week but I was there with her having fun and only left the room for 15 minutes). I have left her doing her first ever painting, seeing her at the table with the apron on starting to do her painting …. I got so emotional that I almost burst out crying ! 

Today was only to hours which Chloe apparently really enjoyed; tomorrow I will have to leave her from 9am till 2 pm …. How will I do that??? … This whole experience is so emotional and stressful! 


2 days ago Chloe has turned 5 months old !!!! 


She weights now 6,3 kg (  pretty much double her birth weight) and is pretty “tall” as we have to do a wardrobe change to 6-9 months clothes. 

 She is able now to :

– seat on her own for few seconds

– stand up on her own when I hold her hands.

– she only wants to stands

– she is blowing raspberries all the time 

– she stuck her tongue out

– she is eating solids and loves it ! (So far baby porridge and rice but if she likes that she will like everything) 

– put her feet in to her mouth (what a milestone 😊)


– she is such a happy and good baby

I can’t believe that it’s been already 5 months! 5 months of so much love and happiness that at times I think that I will burst. 5 month of worrying about the most ridiculous things (happening to Chloe). Can’t wait to see what tomorrow will bring , or shall I say what Chloe will bring 😊
