Sharing motherhood

One of my very best friends welcomed her first baby into the world today; a baby girl beautifully named Evelyn Lark.

Although they live quite literally at the other end of the country, I felt as if I was in the room with them when I heard the news this morning.

It brought back all the wonder, awe, passion and overwhelming love I felt when I first held my Baby Ayla nine and a half months ago; a feeling so unique and all encompassing, and one I never new existed until that day.

I am so excited for my friends and I can’t wait to meet Baby Evelyn.

I also can’t wait to share motherhood with one of my besties.

And, I’m looking forward to being reminded of the early days of Ayla, which already seem so long ago, and listening to the tales of my friends own unique journey into mummyhood.

Words of mummy wisdom

Sunday, 28 July 2013: One Hundred and Sixteen Days Old

I found myself giving words of mummy wisdom today!

And, for the first time, I finally found myself feeling like a mum… An actual MUM.

Hubby and I have some friends staying with us for a couple of weeks and they’re set to become parents for the very first time!

So while the boys were out fishing today we girls had a chance to catch up.

Of course the conversation eventually turned to babies (but not before property, family and fashion) and I was able to impart my knowledge on all things newborn – from poo, to clothes, to sleeping.

It was a conversation I never imagined myself being able to have but it was one I’d glady embark on again… I’m so excited to share motherhood with my bestie, who would have thought?!
