status viatoris – being ‘on the way’/being in a state of pilgrimage

Home at last

Home at last

I have been trying to write a blog post for a number of days now, but something always seems to crop up at the most inopportune moments.

Beatific - for a moment, at least...

Beatific – for a moment, at least…

And that something goes by the name of Maya.

Daddy's onesie - a temporary alternative to Daddy himself

Daddy’s onesie – a temporary alternative to Daddy himself

The reason I no longer have five minutes to myself, can barely string together a coherent sentence and am lugging around udders that would do Daisy the Cow proud, finally made an appearance on Friday 10th of January at 21h32 after a fifteen hour labour followed by an emergency caesarean section, and weighed in at a modest 2.56kg.

A lady always crosses her legs

Even the littlest of ladies should always cross her legs…

And as soon as I manage to snatch an hour to myself (ha ha ha), I shall offer up the warts n’ all birth story – why the grimace? sharing is caring, don’t you know…😉 But for the moment I leave you with a few photos of the new arrival, and the unsurprising news that I am exhausted but exhilarated, terrified by my new responsibilities but bursting with excitement about what the future may bring.

Also comes with eyes!

Also comes with eyes!

This is Status Viatoris: no longer just a Modern Day Nomad, now also Mummy to a tiny daughter. Who’d a thunk it…

    A big hug to you!

    What a little sweetheart! You are in for a real adventure. Yes, plenty of work, but her every new move will warm your heart.

    She’s a lucky little girl to enter a world of love and care…..and such a sweetie!
    Oh, well done you!

      Thank you very much! I was expecting a stocky little bruiser, so being landed with this blond china doll was a bit of a surprise… luckily she is tougher than she looks so should survive my untutored ministrations!

    She’s BEAUTIFUL! Am I mistaken, or is she also Perfect??! Hooray for Maya, welcome little girl. And… is that ginger hair? What splendid days for all of you. I hope you are recovering well from the surgery. complimenti!


    • statusviatoris Says:

      Thank you – she is perfect, how did you guess!!😉 Her hair is a mystery at the moment, I was hoping for it to be black like Daddy’s, but red was my second choice, so fingers crossed it goes that way!


  5. Anja Says:

    Kirsty, she is gorgeous!!! Hopefully you recover quickly, it’s been quite an experience I suppose. Enjoy every minute of her, it all goes so fast and before you know she goes to uni. besos


    • statusviatoris Says:

      Or if she takes after her Mummy, she’ll be booted out of school at 16 and head off to seek her fortune in foreign lands…🙂 Uni is probably better!


  6. Elizabeth Says:

  7. Jo Caistor Says:

    Congratulations Kirsty: what a treasure! Clever you and clever Daddy. Do I see something of your papa in her? Welcome to the world of excessive worry and enormous joy! Much love, Jo.

    Belated congrats!! Somehow my RSS Reader missed this most auspicious announcement. Is she ginger-haired? Lovely, my favourite colour. Wishing you all the happiness in the world! Enjoy, enjoy, enjoy! She’ll grow up in next to no time, after all! PS: Am a newly minted auntie to a very assertive little baby girl.


    • statusviatoris Says:

      Congratulations to you too! How is aunthood treating you? Lucky little niece to have such a strong female role model in her life… Not sure what colour Maya’s hair is or will be. I am hoping for red, but only time will tell!!
