On Motherhood.

 

This week Arthur threw up in my mouth and on a separate occasion I caught his sick in my hands. We’re weaning at the moment which means I sometimes have banana in my hair, or I find stray bits of avocado in usual places. Most days we both go through several outfit changes (I won’t mention the other bodily fluids, most people have heard all about nappy blow-outs). On Thursday he accidentally scratched my eye, which eventually led to a visit to the GP for antibiotics.*

Arthur

 

One month ago today our wonderful, perfect son was born.

 

It already feels like he has been here with us for months and months, and simultaneously that it was just yesterday that we drove back here and showed him around his home for the first time.

Photo an Hour: 25th November, 2017

 

Here’s a glimpse into one of my November days! As often is the case with my photo an hour posts, it was the last day of the month that I could feasibly take a photo an hour… Because I managed to forget until the last week, oops! I managed it none-the-less, so here it is.

Photo an Hour: 12th September, 2017

 

When I took my rather lengthy break from blogging earlier this year, I also ceased my photo an hour projects. I attempted a photo an hour at Caroline & Nori’s wedding, realised how difficult that was to achieve in the first trimester and decided to be kind to myself! When our “secret” wedding rolled around in September, I decided to do a low-key photo an hour to help me remember bits of the day that our wonderful photographer Sassy, wasn’t around for.

About being pregnant

 

We found out that we were expecting on Easter Sunday. We took one test in the morning, which we didn’t quite believe, and so took another in the evening (after having spent a lovely but lengthy day with family!). That was the time we started to let the happiness, surprise, confusion, disbelief and glee wash over us. Finding out you’re growing a tiny, little human, is such an overwhelming feeling!

A secret…

 

As you may have noticed, I took a long and luxurious break from posting – the reason for which has been that we have been busying ourselves with the most wonderful and exciting secret. Of course, for some of you this won’t be a surprise as we’ve been sprinkling our news little by little over the past few weeks and months…
