There were things I’d forgotten about newborns... how tiny and vulnerable they are (even the chunky 9lb babies still look so small), what noisy little sleepers they are with the snuffles and snorts, the gentle mews throughout the night, and how they have the most unimaginably soft skin. It is a treasure to get to experience it all over again 💕
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 🤞🏻
