Una started dancing/Una je pocela da igra


In her playpen though and with her arms only but not too bad for a three weeks old… It looks like Serbian/Greek dancing style, blood is thicker than water 🙂

Unina prva setnja/Una’s first outting

Una je danas isla u setnju po prvi put! Isli smo u grad jer smo morali kod fotografa da Unu slikamo za pasos. Ova akcija joj se nije dopala jer smo morali da je budimo da bi imala otvorene oci na slici a i fotograf nije bio bas najspretniji. Posle smo se setali po gradu, jeli sladoled i cak pojeli sendvice i popili kafu u jednom od divnih kafica u Delftu. Dan je bio divan i Una je uzivala (spavajuci doduse :)).

Today was Una’s first outting! We went to town because we had to have photos of Una taken for her passport. She did not like it at all because we had to wake her so that her eyes are open in the photos. The photographer was rather clumsy and slow which did not help. After this we took a walk in town, had some ice cream and had lunch and coffee in one of the cozy coffee shops in Delft. It was a beautiful day and Una enjoyed it thoroughly (although she was sleeping :)).

Una is one week old! Una je napunila nedelju dana!


Today we celebrate Una’s one week birthday! She weighs 4680gr which is 130gr more than her birth weight. The lady in the photo was our kraamvergzorster (maternity care nurse). She left today so from tomorrow we are on our own!

Una has arrived!!! Stigla nam je Una!!!

We welcomed Una into this world on the 2nd of July 2007, at 23:16 at the hospital Reiner de Graaf in Delft. She came after more than 30 hours of labour and is worth every moment of it. She weighed whopping 4550gr and was the most amazing thing we had ever seen.

The whole labour experience wasn’t easy but we made it! Although we planned and prepared for a natural drug-free birth it didn’t quite work out that way due to the stalled labour after more than 20 hours. The midwife had to turn us over to the hospital staff which was followed by syntocin drip, epidural and a bunch of instruments strapped onto my body. Everything ended well and when they put Una into our arms all of it was forgotten and I felt I could do it all over again. The hospital staff was absolutely amazing which made the experience a lot more pleasant.

Una nam je stigla 2 jula 2007 u 11:16 uvece u bolnici Reiner de Graaf u Delftu. Porodjaj je trajao vise od 30 sati ali smo sve zaboravili kad su mi je stavili na grudi. Teska je 4550gr i osecaj koji smo imali kad su nam je dali je jednostavno neopisiv.

Porodjaj definitivno nije bio lak ali smo se izborili! Iako smo planirali i pripremali se za prirodan porodjaj bez instrumenata, anestetika i ostalih cuda moderne medicine, nije bas ispalo tako zbog toga sto je progres potpuno stao posle 20 sati kontrakcija. Babica je morala da preda dalju brigu osoblju bolnice, sto je bilo praceno ukljucivanjem sintocina za pojacavanje kontrakcija, epiduralom i cudom instrumenata i infuzija prikacenim na mene. Na kraju se sve dobro zavrsilo i kad su mi je spustili na grudi cinilo mi se da bih mogla sve ponovo. Osoblje bolnice je bilo sjajno sto je ucinilo citavo iskustvo prijatnijim.
