You may have noticed things have been rather quiet around here…. That is because Violet Sandra arrived on 24th February 2017 and has turned our lives upside down! After a traumatic birth, she arrived into the world at 02:54am and life has not been the same since. I cannot imagine life without her now, our connection and bond was instant and I haven’t looked back since. Since her birth we were in hospital for quite a while, she needed some extra treatment for jaundice so it’s been a long and bumpy journey so far, but I’m pleased to say we are all well now and settling in at home, finally. I want to share our story but bear with me – we are quietly muddling through a sleep hazed adventure of learning to care for our new bundle. She worries us, surprises us and makes us laugh and smile in different ways every day. I don’t think I’ve felt love like this before, it’s something you cannot put into words. We are just taking each day as it comes and adjusting to our new pace of life. It really is a rollercoaster ride I couldn’t ever have predicted!
So, before she wakes for her next feed (which could be any second, she’s just started wiggling next to me!) I’ll leave you with the some gorgeous snaps of her first days. I’ve been sharing more daily over on Instagram too (@fizzypeaches). When she gives me a moment, I’m looking forward to sharing our birth story and her first update!
