On us lately


♥♥ her vocabulary become richer and richer with every new day. She started with "nu" (no), "nani" (sleep), "apa" (water), "Ana" (her cousin), "pa!" (good bye), "bavo!" (short form of bravo!), "sizi" (instead of "suzi" = "pacifier"), "papa" (food), "ham" (dog's barking), "mami" & "tati" and now she also says: "nenea" (any man on the street), "papu" (short form of "papuci" = "shoes"), "caca" (poo), "pufu" (short form of "pufuleti" = some snacks), "ia" (take this), "hai" (come), "sus" (up), "pisi" (cat), "cra" (crow), "Mama" (instead of "Mara", her friend from the park), "măr" (apple), "miam" (that's how she asks for food), "catea" (short form of "cartea" = book), "aşa" (like this), "bebe" (baby).

♥♥ she is trying her best in pronouncing any word we ask her to pronounce. When we started this kind of game she was repeating the word as we were asking her to repeat, except for "cuţu" (dog), which she was replacing with "ham" (dog's barking) :-)

♥♥ any flying creature is a "cra" (crow) for her. Few days ago when she noticed a big fly, of course she called it "cra" :-)

♥♥ she is jealous. Adrian is her and only her. She cannot stand to see me kissing him or holding his hand. Immediately when she notices such daring behavior of mine, she comes toward us, screaming "nu, nu, nu, nu", and she pushes me away from HER Daddy

♥♥ currently she has only 3 favorite meals: supa de galuşte, ciorba de fasole verde cu perisoare de pui, mâncare de mazăre cu pifteluţe de pui la cuptor.

♥♥ and what bother me the most these days:

she throws food on the floor.......
I've explained her about poor children not having any food at all, I've told her it's not a nice behavior so she should stop doing it, I've told her I will slap her hands, I even slapped her hands.... She learned something: she knows it's something bad:

but she keeps on doing the same and to drive me crazy:

baby girl

♥♥ on 11th this month we had another appointment with the gynecologist. We were told our baby girl is perfectly developed, according to the calendar, and she weights about 800gr.

♥♥ she is super-active and strong (I compare her movements with Ilaria's in the same stage of development).

♥♥ only 3 months to go and we still didn't fully decide on her name. We had a list of preferences: Ana, Maria, Dionisia, Valeria. Now our favorite is Rebeca. I'm very happy with "Rebeca", but Adrian still has some doubts. He would prefer a "happier" name, ending in "aria" or at least in "ria", the same like Ilaria does. 

 me and Adrian

♥♥ on Friday, 15th, we've celebrated Adrian's birthday and 5 years of marriage!

Happy Birthday, Adrian! And many happy years together for us!

We had fun at Zoo Tg. Mures (, on a too hot day

together with our parents:

♥♥ spending 15th of July by visiting a Zoo garden seems to had became a custom for us, as last year we were visiting Zoo Brasov. So, which Zoo for next year? ;-)

♥♥ apart from the surprise with Zoo garden (Adrian drove us there knowing only the address), Adrian got another symbolic surprise:

After 5 years from our wedding day, I finally made our wedding photo album. The album was our wedding gift from my sister and it turned out gorgeous! And it's a huge satisfaction to have another project finished!
It was a great feeling to remember those happy moments!...
The doing process:

Kisses from us and have a marvelous week-end!
Ralu & Co.

I wanted to say hello! I've had a very busy summer and have been gone a lot and just got a chance to stop in and say hello and read some of your posts and catch up with you again! Your little girl is getting so tall! She's absolutely beautiful! I wanted to also congratulate you on your new one soon to be here! How fun!

La multi ani Adi! La multi ani pentru tanara familie Spirchez!!
Ralu, ce zici de un sondaj pentru a vedea care nume de fata din cele "participante" are cel mai mare punctaj?? Let's vote!!!! Sa votam, deci!!!:))

Mihaela said...

Very nice! You are a good writer and photographer! Foarte bine!

Hi Raluca! It has been a busy summer and I've gotten behind on blogs. I was thinking about you the other day and wondering how your little baby is growing, so what a pleasant surprise to find this great update on your blog!

Your wedding dress was so beautiful! It looked like a wonderful day and having your album done must be so satisfying! As a photographer I have designed dozens of albums for other people, but never my own. My wedding pictures are just 4x6 prints stuffed in an album. Go figure!

Will you be able to continue staying home after your second daughter is born? I remember you telling me that you get at least a year maternity leave, but where your girls are close together will they give you that same benefit the second time around? I hope so because there is no greater blessing than being home to watch your little ones grow.

P.S. I love the silhouette picture on your blog header with your growing family. :)

ce dragut :) ai fost o mireasa foarte frumoasa ,sa va ajute Dumnezeu sa aveti in continoare o viata la fel de frumoasa *_*

Raluca said...

@Dana: multumim mult de urari!! Ideea cu sondajul e interesanta; cred ca o voi pune in practica in curand :-)

Raluca said...

@Sue: maternity leave is maximum 2 years in Romania. When Ilaria will be 2 years old our baby girl should be born, so it shouldn't be any problem for me to stay home with our girls for another 2 years. You are right: there is no greater blessing and satisfaction for moms than to enjoy time well spent within family! I simply adore my actual job ;-)

@Luminita: iti multumesc si multumim mult de aceste cuvinte frumoase!!
