About Me

My photo
Last year I turned the big 3.0 and got married - I thought that was my milestone year. As it turns out, 2009 quickly overshadowed 2008 when my husband and I found out we were pregnant. I'm going to be experiencing everything for the first time as a woman and an expectant mother which is why I'm calling this my year of firsts. I'm senior editor for Marie Claire South Africa.

Pumping that milk

It's been a while since my last post - not because I haven't had the time to post; but that I haven't had the inclination. I keep on thinking I have more important things to do like fill in Maya's baby book, finish putting together our wedding album, put the finishing touches to her room... and then I check in on my blog and think, I'll get back to it.

Well, today is a momentous occasion. It's the first time I'm expressing milk with my little manual Pigeon pump - managed to get it right first time and fill the bottle up to 4oz. Apparently that's quite good but I'm hoping with more practise I'll express more at a faster rate. So I've put it in the fridge and when Hein gets home, he'll get a chance to feed her for the first time. This is all so Hein can take over some of those early morning shifts - and also in preparation for when I go back to work next year and her nanny takes over.

Holding thumbs Maya is a Pigeon baby!
