Catchy title, right?! I am going to have fun with this one (this post)! It is crazy how much time passed since my last post. Were we still in Thailand at the time?! Probably. And we will be on Samui again, you just wait for my next post. But as for now, we are in Budapest. I am enjoying everyday life with Assya and Zoard. Assya will be 8 months old on the 23rd of this month (August) and Zoard is 3.5 years old.
Assya is exploring a toy box.
Zoard is singing to himself in his room. Occasionally he lets me know how lonely he is.It is nap time. For him.
This is what I am most proud of. I take the kids out a lot. In the morning and in the afternoon. I organize an insane amount of playdates and we use public transportation on a daily basis. Assya is not so much a fan after a certain time so I usually take her out of her stroller and she sits in my lap or I take the carrier with me.
I still take pictures as you can see. I started a collection of Zoard pushing Assya. On Instagram I have started a tag #pushingassya. Please let me know if you also have a hashtag of your own. I was inspired by a few mamas who have been doing their own tags and projects, I find it lovely!
Zoard still hasn’t started his afternoon nap which is frankly, quite bad. He should be napping between 2 and 4 and now it is 3pm. It will be very difficult waking him up, once he falls asleep, not to mention that he will not be tired until 10. But we will be.
Our bedroom is super dark in the mornings, and I am usually quiet and slow when I am waken up by Zoard, but let me see if I can find any pictures… morning (or sleeping) related.
Cute picture but around dawn, I am too sleepy to put Assya back in her cot and Zoard climbs in our bed at …who knows when… I just notice my bed space shrinking… so this is NOT a morning shot.
I really took this one in the morning. Zoard was showing us what he looks like when he is asleep.
You see how small our bed is?! Imagine me and my husband in it and these two, plus the swan! HAHA
We eat a lot but it is not so flattering to take pictures of anyone while they have tasty or not so tasty food hanging out of their mouth.
She is not crying. She is grateful. We are doing baby led weaning again. (Assya is making friends with some apples.)
By the way, my husband does most of the cooking.
Zoard still eats healthy foods but like I said, I tend not to take pictures of him doing so.
On the other hand, you can find lots of pictures of me nursing Assya. I feel very strongly about breastfeeding. And she is still just playing with the vegetables and fruits we give her so basically, breastmilk is all she gets. We do not give her water either.
Here is a shot of one of the coolest playdates we had. Do you see a pattern here?!

Assya is telling me I must stop right now and play with her. Yes, ma’am
See you on Instagram @zoardandassya!
