That Look! Only a mother knows!

A mothers love has no explanation, there are no words and neither should there be...

Happy Mothers Day x

You Bump and Me Series 'Fast Forward Six Months'

What a difference 6 months makes! My not so little bubba finally made an appearance on 9th July exactly two weeks later than predicted and it's been one hell of a roller coaster ride ever since.

Sleepless nights - Check

Raging Hormones - Check

Baby Brain - Check Check 

It's a bit like being pregnant only now there's a physical person that you have to take care of on a daily basis. Did I say sleepless nights?... OH yes, oops! that'll be the baby brain! You get the picture right? 

But its all been worth it every sleepless night, every hormonal tear shed, every ending to a sentence (you know) the 'thingy' takes on a whole new endless list of meanings, every item lost (but not really you just forgot where you put it 5 minutes before)... I wouldn't change any of it. I have the most beautiful boy in the world and he brings me so much joy each day watching him grow (FAST) and seeing his own little personality develop... Oh yes, he's going to be a cheeky one! Not sure where he gets that from :)

 

 


You Bump and Me Series - Impatiently Waiting

July 04, 2016  •  Leave a Comment

 

Being at such a late stage in my pregnancy it's all systems GO on the nesting front! As a self confessed OCD addict, these raging hormones and the imminent if not slightly later than expected arrival of the little one wasn't really helping matters.  

Racing towards the 2nd week of being 'overdue'  I would have considered myself to be in a pretty peaceful place all things considered had it not been for the midwives at each appointment putting the fear of god into me with their preconceived idea that my birth 'may' go wrong followed up further with threats of being induced. Followed by further still well meaning friends sharing their thoughts and passing across information to a then heavily pregnant women at 42 weeks summarising why it's best to be induced at 39 weeks or face potential life threatening problems... yes probably not the wisest move.  

In any case, I'm massively in love with this bump of mine and if baby wants to stay in their all cosy and warm for a bit longer then I shall continue to wait, happily, impatiently but patiently for my little person to make their arrival in this world.

 

"PERFECT"

the first inkling of you, crept into her head, and she waited
as you grew she adjusted her thinking to include the idea of you
wrestled with uncertainty, fear, doubt crystallizing into acceptance
and with a growing feeling of excitement welcomed you
curving her hands softly around you
eyes soft, mouth plush with secrets
visible signs of transformation upon her flesh
until the taut regions spongy with protective cushioning
shaped to your tiny fist in smooth ripples
as you revealed yourself in small beautiful shapes
pressing longingly against her, your perfect foot
testing its first ground while her hands smoothed and stroked
peacefully absorbing not just the thought of you
but the reality of you into her heart.

A Sunny Easter Wedding at Oaks Farm Shirley

I'm so happy to finally blog the Easter wedding of Nick & Helen at the beautifully quaint setting of Oaks Farm in Shirley. The day itself was blessed with gorgeous sunshine (albeit a few non eventful showers here and there) a complete contrast to the last few weeks of dull days and dreary rain.  Nothing quite like a wedding to make the sun shine.

The love and connection between these lovely two who met at work was undeniable during their engagement photo shoot and have gone from making their excuses about lost stationary in order to see each other to what was a beautiful wedding day... Seems like nothing was going to get in the way of these two getting married and their day flew by without so much as a blip. Even me at a then 6 months pregnant ploughed on and lasted till the late hours to capture treasured memories for the happy couple for what was a truly beautiful day.

A day trip to sunny Brighton

May 12, 2016  •  Leave a Comment

OH I do like to be beside the seaside oh I do like to be beside the sea... de dum de dum! I haven't been to a beach in the UK for god knows how long so we decided to take advantage of the glorious weather we've been blessed with recently, take bump out on it's first seaside excursion and headed to none other than sunny Brighton. 

Of course we had a few stop off's along the way, for the inevitable loo breaks that became a bit of a theme ahem... give me a break, I'm pregnant! :) 

None the less we made it in true 'Curly n Mikee' style mid afternoon in time to soak up the sun and indulge in a refreshing glass of cider for Mikee and a real strawberry milkshake for me a bump... YUM!
