I feel all sorts of emotions typing this post. Our last family portrait as a three. Any day now our whole family dynamic and life as we know it is going to change forever. Of course I am ridiculously excited to welcome our new addition, but part of me is feeling a little nervous for what lays ahead too. The last three and a half years since Bella was born have exceeded all of my expectations of what Motherhood would be like. Its been more amazing than I could have ever imagined and I have loved every moment of it. Yes, there has been tough days. Those days when I have counted down the minutes until bed time. Days that I have cried more than the baby probably did. But overall, it’s been wonderful and I’ll always be so grateful to Bella, for making me a Mother. For teaching me how to love with no limits. And for showing me how to enjoy the simple things in life.
May has been mainly focused on getting everything ready for our baby boys arrival. I have washed more teeny baby clothes than I can count. I have repacked his bag a million times over. And I have zoflora-ed the shit out of my kitchen table way more times that probably necessary. We are ready. Oh so ready.
We’ve also been trying to make the most of our last few baby free weekends together which has been just lovely. Josh and I enjoyed one last little getaway in Reading at the beginning of the month. The following weekend I got my hair done and we had our maternity photos taken (more of those here) which is also when we captured this months Me & Mine photos. And the last couple of weekends have been spent taking it slow as a family, soaking up the calm before the storm I suppose. The sun has shone, we’ve been for lots of
walks waddles with the dog, played in the garden until past bed time, eaten way too much ice cream and just enjoyed each others company. It’s been exactly what I have needed and it’s made me even more excited for lots more weekends spent like this over the Summer, just with our baby boy in tow too!
There is a fair few photos this month, but I just love all of them so much that I couldn’t choose my favourites so I have included them all! These photos will always hold a very special place in my heart that’s for sure. A big thank you to Charlotte Rawles Photography for capturing them for us. We love you.
Me & Mine in May <3
