By now it's been almost 2 weeks since our beautiful daughter Ondeya was born and my wife Leila and I took her home. I am happy the cold winter has ended and the European spring is starting. I look forward to spending time with my family outdoors in nature while the sun is shining and the sky is blue.
New Borns sleep a lot and Ondeya is no exception, but by now we know her sleep and feeding pattern like clock work.
It is an amazing feeling to watch her sleep, by now she has also started this habit of smiling at us whenever we hold her. I see her change and grow from day to day.
My wife Leila is is going through the postpartum period but rather recovering fast.
She is really handling everything like the strong, beautiful soul she is.
During a woman's postpartum period — which some researchers believe actually lasts up to 6 months, a woman's body will experience a number of changes, from healing after childbirth to hormonal mood swings. All of this in addition to tackling breastfeeding, sleep deprivation, and the overall monumental adjustment to motherhood.
There is also a clinic literally 5 minutes walk from our place in case we need to see a doctor.
Ondeya was registered as a Latvian citizen in the hospital and we intend to also register her as a Namibian citizen at the Namibian embassy in Finland when the time is right.
For now she is all about sleeping, feeding and resting so I took my older brother's advice and also rest while she sleeps.
We are so in love with our daughter...
