Reminiscing about our Little Mr’s arrival

It’s only 5 weeks until Little Mr celebrates his first birthday. I really don’t know where the year has gone. It has been an absolute whirlwind of emotions, adventures, challenges and life lessons. Prior to Little Mr’s arrival, I knew my life as it was would be no more. I knew it would dramatically change but I never expected the rush of love, the endless tears of elation, joy and agony and the overwhelming feeling of responsibility for such a tiny human being.

Today on the television, you might just notice the Johnsons Baby advert which features lots of #LifeisReborn moments. I’ve had a sneaky peek of the advert and it made me well up.

I remember so well the moment when Little Mr was passed to me by my hubby in the recovery room, I was shaking but couldn’t wait for a cuddle of my precious newborn. I wanted to kiss him and stroke his head, see who’s nose he had and look into his beautiful blue eyes and tell him how long we’ve been waiting to meet him.


Cuddles with Little Mr only a few hours old

A few hours later my son and I were on the ward and the midwives were telling me I needed to get some sleep. They were right, I was pretty exhausted. I’d probably had about 8 hours sleep over 3 days but I couldn’t take my eyes of my gorgeous little boy. That was the day my was reborn, I was a Mummy and it was the best feeling ever.

Something I’ve always wanted to be – a very proud Mummy

    Such a lovely post. What a cutie! Our little one was born 4 months ago but it feels more like 4 minutes. The time goes so quickly but it’s amazing watching them grow and learn about everything around them :) x
