The boy and I were talking about something last night, and it made me realise how spontaneous and fun I used to be and how much I’d changed. It made me sad to think about it. I don’t know when I changed so much and I wish I’d only become less spontaneous since having a baby as that would be to be expected, but I know it was way before that. I suppose it must be an age thing but… View Post

I’ve decided to set up an email account for baby girl so that her Daddy, Grandparents and I can email her. We’ll use it to share stories with her, tell her what she’s like at that moment in time, send her photos, and just let her know how much she is loved as she grows up. Then, when she’s old enough I’ll pass the email account over to her so she can read it all and have something special from… View Post

I loved you from the very start, You stole my breath, embraced my heart. Our life together has just begun, You’re part of me my little one.

Like first steps and skinned knees, Like bedtime stories and ABC’s. I thought of things you’d want to know, Like how birds fly and… View Post

I’ve been on Instagram a while now and I’m glad it’s… View Post

I wish I cared less didn’t care about what people think. I wish I had more clothes that fit me and don’t highlight my belly/bum/hips/love (hate) handles. I wish I didn’t have post-natal body ‘issues’ and could work out hard like I want to so I can feel better about myself. I wish I had more confidence. I wish I didn’t let my lack of confidence and low self esteem affect my days.   Bad day. You’re totally worth it… View Post

Hi! I’m Louise, and this is my new blog. It’s where I’m going to share my life as a new mummy and the journey I took to get where I am (it wasn’t easy), talk about pregnancy and IVF, parenting, and life with my daughter. But I’ll also share other parts of my life with you too when the mood takes me. Since becoming a mum, I’ve loved reading mummy blogs (when I can find the time), and I’ve really… View Post
