Life Lately: Volume 55

It was a big week in the Dzafic household. Our tiniest member took his first steps on Wednesday and spent the next 10 minutes walking. He has yet to do it since but we’re counting it as his first time walking. It was so cute and he was preeeetty proud of himself. As was his big sister. Anel caught it on camera too!

I’m on baby watch for my sister who was due on Monday and will pop out my second niece any minute now. The second she goes into labor I’m booking it down to Philly to hopefully be in the delivery room in time.

Hopefully, the next time you hear from me I’ll be an auntie again!


High: Luca walking was obviously my highest high this week (and month!) but on another note, I am so so so so excited for my new niece to come and check my phone every 0.2 seconds to see if my sister has texted yet. The excitement to meet her is putting me in the best mood and knowing that I’m done caring for my own newborns also feels pretty great 🙂

Low: Honestly, I had a pretty great week for once. My anxiety has been out of control with everything happening in the world lately but after long sessions with both my therapist and psychiatrist, we made a plan and it’s been working. Not feeling physically, painfully anxious all week has been incredible. The one (minor) low is that I have a really cute heat rash on the back of my neck that is ugly, itchy, and annoying. But if that’s the worst part of the week, I’ll take it
