A Note from Sam
I was stuck when I got to know the theme for November gallery is DREAM. Then I browse through all the photos that I have printed and found this photo of me & my boy. I have never envisioned myself being a mom, but now I could proudly say that being a momma is my best, dream job ever!
I journal on a piece of tag and stick it behind the layout simply because I didn't have space for my long journaling. Here it goes: Some of the mornings I woke up and it took me quite a while to realise that I am a mommy. Most of the mornings I wake up feeling blessed, be it seeing a smiley baby or a fussy baby. It's such weird feeling that I actually mean the world to him, and he needs me almost 24/7 as source of nom-nom and comfort. Of course I would love to have more of my me-time and scrapping time back. When he is all smiley, I feel like I am the coolest mom in the world doing all the 'right' thing - breastfeeding, cloth diapering, babywearing and documenting his daily life. There are times he is so fussy that I think I am so lousy and even feel like throwing him out the window (which obviously I would never do it). So glad that we made it to 15 weeks now. Way to go, baby!
November Fun Fact
I am kinda look forward to the month of November because I can start doing Christmas shopping. We don’t particularly celebrate Christmas but I still very much enjoy doing Christmas shopping, putting up simple decoration, etc. I like how the malls and stores are decorated beautifully with Christmas decorations. And part of me is jumping in joy because I am done moving (relocating) back to Malaysia, with all the baby stuff and scrapbooking stuff. I am amazed by how many scrapbook supplies I have bought in 2 years time. LOL
