Just a few short days ago I was carrying him inside me. This was one of the last bump photos taken, after the realisation I had barely documented this pregnancy. And now here he is earthside. Thank you so much for all the kind words and well wishes, it fills my heart 💕
Our darling new addition to the family, Finley George, arrived on Saturday June 9th at 7.33pm weighing 9lbs 5oz. It was another intense and quick labor with no time for any pain relief, but I got through it with the support of Matt. We’re all smitten with him and he’s getting lots of love from his adoring siblings ☺️ Welcome to the family little one 💕
Feeling like a beached whale at 39 weeks. Baby is measuring 3 weeks ahead, he was already an estimated 8lbs at my appointment last week 😳 Let’s hope they’re wrong, eh? 🙈 It still feels surreal that we’ll be meeting our son soon. Can’t wait to see that little face!
One week in our new home. I underestimated how hard it would be with two little ones and being 38 weeks pregnant (also doesn’t help when the A/C isn’t working and you’re trying to unpack when it’s 80 degrees inside!) It’s something I wish never to repeat 🙈 but we’re on the other side now and slowly settling in.
36 weeks and I’ve definitely reached the uncomfortable stage. The struggle (and waddle) is real. We move house in one week and I’m trying not to panic about doing so when heavily pregnant. But it’ll be nice to finally get in and be able to nest. Before baby arrives hopefully 🤞🏻
Everly is going through a sweet stage where she is besotted with babies. There was a baby at her gym class today and she was completely captivated; all she wanted to do was sit in front of her and smile. I can’t wait to see her reaction when she meets her baby brother, she’s so excited. Then she can tickle baby toes for as long as she wants ☺️
We never planned on giving Everly a dummy/pacifier, but the hospital staff gave her one shortly after she was born and it was the beginning of a long journey of attachment to it! It had started to affect her bite so we knew it had to go. We had a few failed attempts, but in the end, we lost her dummy and after searching everywhere, knew we had to go cold turkey! It wasn’t as bad as we thought. There were a few days where she cried in the lead up to nap/bed time when she asked for it, but she never went to bed crying, and eventually she stopped asking for it. We’re now three weeks in and her teeth are already back to normal 👍🏻 Our next transition is from crib to toddler bed! 🤞🏻
After a year of searching and two unsuccessful offers, we have finally bought our first home in America! It’ll be a lot of change all at once, with a new house and a new baby, but we’re so excited to finally have a place to call our own. We’ll be sad to say goodbye to this place, though. This house has been our home for the past 3 years and it’s where Henry has spent most of his life. We’ve had some really happy times here and I hope we’re able to make plenty of new memories in our new home. Here’s to new beginnings!
