Three months

In twelve short weeks, this baby… …has become this baby! Every evening as I kiss her squidgy cheek goodnight, I feel a little sad. It’s like saying goodbye to someone you’ve just met but fallen completely in love with. She changes so fast and learns something new every day – the day she smiled for [...]

Notes on motherhood: PND, broccoli, and saying yes.

It’s happened. I’ve become one of those mothers. I now think of other mothers and think how unlucky they are, because they didn’t get Emmi. Because, I mean, how could any child be better than Emmi? See? The thing is, I feel like it’s ok for me to feel like that, that it might actually be [...]

You glow, like a beacon through the fog, giving me direction. Fatigue. Blur. Existing. Surviving. Managing. Love like no other; fierce and honest and true. Inhaling [...]

Notes on a Pregnancy

When I sat down to write an ‘update’ post on my pregnancy, I had a vague idea of a few things I really wanted to share with you. Then I started typing and then I couldn’t stop typing and then I rewrote about 89 paragraphs to make them shorter and ohgod it’s still the longest [...]

10 Months

Here we are, and I’m ten months old. Ten and a half actually, because mum’s a bit late on this post. I’ve been going on at her for weeks to get on and do it, but you know what these mums are like; no good at multi-tasking. Anyway,  that means that in six weeks, I’m [...]
