9 Months...


It's Wednesday 13th January and I am finally getting around to being able to do a long overdue blog post. It's been a little quiet here on my blog but I definitely have a good reason for that... Yesterday marked our newest addition turning 1 week old and so we have spent the past 7 days recovering, getting to know our gorgeous new baby and generally adjusting to life as a four. We have had lots of sleepless nights, cosy midnight milk cuddles and a fair bit of crying (not just from our new little bundle...) but after a week, I really feel like we are settling into this and we are all finally feeling a bit more normal. 


If you read my blog regularly, you will know I have religiously posted weekly bump updates throughout this pregnancy. I know sometimes bump updates can read as a little monotonous, with symptoms not changing much from week to week, but it is something I really wanted to do. I wanted to document all those subtle changes, as well as the more major milestones such as scans and first kicks. I have totally surprised myself that I stuck at it as it can be very time consuming and difficult to remember to take a shot every week (I got every week bar 2 I think). But more than anything, it's the photos showing how the little bump grew bigger and stronger each week, with my final photo being taken when baby Luca is 5 days old. 

I love that I have these photos as a memory of this pregnancy. Luca really was an exceptionally good baby to his mummy when he was in my tummy and I feel like I sailed through it. It went by so quickly and bar some bad heartburn and itchy skin, and for that I am so thankful. 

I will be doing some posts over the next couple of weeks about his birth story and a few updates too, but for now, we are just loving life with our gorgeous baby boy and LO. I look back at these pictures and then down to my left where Luca is sleeping so soundly in his bouncer and feel such amazement that I grew this tiny precious baby and feel so utterly blessed.

  2. Loved reading this. Documenting these things is something so special. I didn't blog my three but kept my personal scrapbooks and diaries as I didn't really learn about blogging then. But even though they're not online I'm so thankful for documenting, photographing and filming. This time around I'm glad to have done the same plus my blog.. Your pregnancy seems to have flown and how is Luca a week already?! Capturing these memories is one of the best things and the best reminder than we were able to grow actual humans! 😊
