DIY: Child Monitor



My Husband had just indicated that we needed a baby monitor because, I have to cook and I can't watch the baby sleeping until I hear him cry - Which is not very good- So, this faithful day I was home alone and cuddles had taken a nap, I wanted to use the window to quickly get some things done in the kitchen so I improvised. I hope this can help you as it helped me.

Pregnancy Diary 2: 1st Trimester || The Cuddle Blog

After the euphoria of finding out we were expecting our first child faded, We were hit with the reality that comes with pregnancy. Google became my friend that stuck closer because we hadn't announced to anyone except family which meant I couldn't talk to anyone about it yet.

Pregnancy Diary 1: How we found out || The Cuddle Blog

Thanks for visiting my blog today. I decided to share my Pregnancy diary, lessons I learnt in each of the phases and it will be in 5 parts. How we found out, 1-3 Trimester and Birth Story. I hope you enjoy it.
Before we got married, we talked about having kids and our desire was to wait a couple of months before we tried, that was the agreement but God had other plans. 
We were not trying and we were not not trying. To be honest, I was terrified of getting pregnant because I knew the responsibility it comes with - or I thought I knew - after the first 6 months, we already had family concerned for us but we were not worried at all as we had working on ourselves and getting to know each other better to focus on. Looking back now,  I am glad we had that time before we got pregnant.

You know how every month before you see your period it just feels like you're pregnant, I had those moments, I would make my husband buy me Pregnancy tests and they would all be negative and…

Why was it so special? Asides the fact that the miracle of the birth of a child is always so special, My Husband had never thought this was going to happen, He got married a little later than most people in his age group when he least expected it and about a year later found out he was going to have a baby. It was surreal which made him all the more grateful for the blessing of a beautiful boy. While I was busy thinking I wasn't quite ready to be a Mum, He was over the moon and making fun of me.
