Happy 7th Birthday L: An open letter

Ma Grande Puce*,

How time flies! How is it possible that it’s already 7 years since I became a mum?!? Little did I know how much you would change my life, turn it around and upside down. I was pretty prepared for dealing with a baby, and we were lucky in that you were a pretty chilled and easy baby, but what I wasn’t prepared for was dealing with a toddler, a little girl, and now a girl who’s getting bigger and bigger.… Read more

Happy 1st Birthday C: An open letter

To my beautiful baby girl,

Today is your 1st birthday so it seems the right time to write you this letter (which will only make sense to you when you are much older).

How long is 9 months?

My beautiful C is 9 months old today, which got me thinking about what 9 months means. When I found out I was pregnant with C I knew I had 9 months ahead of me, and they draaaaaggggggeeeeddddd on. (As they did during my pregnancy with L.) Every day lasted a week and it felt like I’d been pregnant forever, and still had ages left to go.… Read more

Magic Moments – Baby’s moving forwards

Having just got back from a fortnight’s family holidays there are millions of Magic Moments that I could talk about today (including our 10th wedding anniversary which we celebrated whilst away), but I am going to choose just one, or rather a selection of similar ones, all about Baby C.

She is 8 and a half months old now and this holiday has seen us reach various milestones – we went from two teeth to four, as her top two cut while we were away.… Read more
