So I’ve been MIA for a few weeks now. I have a good reason – a newborn baby!
The second day into my maternity leave, my waters broke. I had nothing prepared as I wasn’t expecting bub for another two and a half weeks. So while K made his way home to go to the hospital, I was waddling around at home packing mine and the baby bags. In hindsight, I should have done this beforehand when I didn’t have a million things running through my head.
Anyway – got to the hospital and sat around for a few hours and was sent home. At this stage I had only very minor contractions. K & I ate and BOOM! my contractions started. Back to the hospital and 6.5 hours later, my beautiful baby was born.
No-one warned us about the first few weeks with a new born! The lack of sleep, breastfeeding difficulties, doctor/nurse appointments, nappy changing, bathing etc. Being new to this game they call “motherhood” wasn’t as easy as I thought. But alas, I think I’m getting the hang of it (sort of)!
Enough of my ramblings and let me introduce to you my new bundle of joy baby Alexander.
I'm an obsessed OP-SHOPAHOLIC from Melbourne. If I could, I would op-shop and read blogs all day everyday - ha I wish!
I love making old things new from furniture to clothing. Come and join me on my journey.
Thanks for stopping by!
