and baby makes three...

Greetings from the flip side! And thankyou all for the lovely well wishes on bubs' safe arrival. It has been such a whirlwind, it's been tough at times but so amazing - and now I pause for breath and realise my little newborn is 6 weeks old!
It gets easier every day, and it's amazing to see how quickly she grows and changes, it's so wonderful to see her smiling back at us now, babbling and cooing, all those little changes are at once magical and somehow unbearably sad.

Loving every minute spent with this one...

We have quite a nice little routine going now - V is currently working locally which is SO lovely, plus it means my morning shower-dress-makeup-breakfast routine is a little less rushed. Coffee and the paper are, as ever, essential to kick the day off

There has been no real cessation in coffee dates, they just take a little longer these days - I've learnt the essential skill of eating cake one-handed

Funnily enough, the vanilla milkshake cravings have continued post-pregnancy!

Lots of walks in this gorgeous spring weather we've been having!

Got some essential shopping done with my mum this week - indoctrinating Evie into the great consumer cult early! Hanging out as three generations of women in my family is pretty cool

Hoping to get some more blogging done in the coming days, without turning this into the dreaded "mummy blog", maybe a list of our essentials for us and the little one
Hope the past month has been good to you all!


  1. You've got to love that new born stage, so cute!

  2. So nice to read a new post from you! Great to hear all is going well :)

  3. I've been wondering how you've been :) Little E is gorgeous. And I'm glad she's already loving shopping.
    Keep well, enjoy this special time x

  4. I love reading positive posts about motherhood. It makes me less scared of becoming one myself in the future. I think it is wonderful that you are making time for yourself and still doing things you've done pre-baby! Good on you!
    You little darling is adorable!

  5. So lovely to hear from you, and hear everything is going well! She s so lovely-no wonder you are besotted! xxx

  6. What a beautiful little gem! Lovely to hear your news - thanks for the update!

  9. Yay been keeping up to date with you on Instagram. E is so cute and just has SO MUCH HAIR!! Super cutie.

  10. What a beautiful family. Enjoy x

  11. Evelyn is delightful. Looks like she is fitting in nicely x

  12. Motherhood really suits you! I absolutely love your nursery décor too. It's your blog, so you write about whatever it is that you are into. I personally love reading people's 'essentials' lists, and would be really keen to hear your thoughts on your pram too. Little Evelyn is beautiful too!

  13. She's divine! How amazing is motherhood? It's so nice seeing them do new things but at the same time it's sad to see them grow so quickly. It only gets better though xx
