I’m so happy to introduce our darling girl Emily!
That last week of pregnancy was tough, with plenty of sleepless nights due to cramps and kicks (and a wakeful toddler who seemed to sense the change afoot!) but the birth itself was quick and calm. It was such a positive experience in fact that it left me on a massive high for days afterwards! Emily has just slotted right into the family – it’s as though we were waiting for her and now that she’s here life can really begin. It’s funny because I remember feeling exactly the same way with Orla – one of natures clever tricks perhaps! Second time around I feel like I’m taking things in my stride a little more. Nothing can prepare you for the earth shattering lifestyle switch-up of having your first baby but this time it’s all cool. It’s funny because now that Orla is such a person, I look back at her baby photos and I can see the Orla I know staring back at me but at the time I had no idea what was coming. Emily has her own vibe and I can’t wait to get to know this perfect little person.
I’m looking forward to getting back to my sewing table in a few weeks time but right now I’m busy savouring every sweet cuddle with my girl who is growing far too quickly already.
