Hayat Turns Two

Hayat Turns Two

It has been one heck of a 2019 so far! We celebrated New Year’s Eve welcoming sweet baby Zayn into our lives, officially promoting us to a family of 4. I’m in the process of putting together the details of his birth story, so it will be coming to the blog very soon. It’s going to be a fun read!  

Over the weekend, we celebrated Hayat turning two! It seriously feels like we just blinked and now we have an adorable, fierce, smiley little girl who dances and sings at every opportunity she gets. I wrote a letter for her, but really, it’s more for me to remember this special time in our lives.

Hayat's Birth Story

Hayat's Birth Story

I didn’t think I’d have the time, energy or will to ever write up a birth story.  Every detail of our labour experience has been deeply entrenched into my brain.  I’ll never forget the moment I thought I was in labour.  The first round of painful contractions.  My attempt at washing my hair and blow drying before speeding off to the hospital. The heavy weight of my Sorell's.  Even those moments where I wanted to hit Ali for doing nothing but trying to soothe me.  I was a wreck, as any 7 day overdue, exhausted, hangry, labouring mother-to-be would be.  But I still wanted to put into words the series of events that turned our lives upside down and brought us our first born beauty of a daughter, Hayat.
