When I first started writing this the Little Lady was far closer to 2 years old than she was 3. I filed it away and never got around to finishing it, but as we rapidly approach her 3rd birthday I really want to publish this little piece, even if it doesn’t say much. Continue reading “2 year update”
Here I am, after what has been a mammoth quiet period. Where have I been, I hear you ask?
Woo hoo, we have been on our first family holiday!
We had thought about this for quite a while and had decided that flying somewhere may not be our best option. We struggle to travel light at the best of times and we also didn’t want to risk the Little Lady screaming for an entire flight (driving passengers and us mental) and totally putting us off going on holiday ever again. Continue reading “Road Trippin’”
To say hate is probably too strong a word but the Little Lady is definitely not liking her swimming lessons any more. Continue reading “From Love to Hate”
Well what can I say life has been hectic and the Little Lady is changing quicker than a blink of the eye. Continue reading “Happy New Year!”
So, last week at 14 months 1 week the Little Lady decided to take some steps on her own! This was obviously greeted by lots of whoops and cheers from me, all of which I managed to catch on video. Continue reading “We have a walker!”
Before having a little one I could safely say that I was quite “indoorsy”. Mr K. loves being outside and finding adrenaline filled things to do, but I enjoy the quieter things and would rarely put myself out of my Comfort zone. I would try different things so Mr K. and I could do things together but if I didn’t have to I wouldn’t push myself……..until now. Continue reading “She made me do it!”
I’ve been really lame about writing anything for some time now and I’m really late with this and completely missed writing anything on the Little Lady’s birthday. She turned one on the 29th July, I still can’t quite believe it. Actually I still can’t believe that we have a child, will I ever get used to it? Continue reading “Happy Unbirthday!”
When Mr K. and I arrived home the Little Lady reduced me to tears. Mr K. picked her up and lent in with her for a cuddle and she lent in too, little arm out to go around my neck. She then lent back and touched my cheek smiling. This made my heart explode, we had missed her so much. As I cried she touched my eyes still smiling and then lent back in for a cuddle.
As I write this I am sat in a hospital waiting to have surgery on my lower back and this will be the start of a tough few months. Firstly the hospital is about 400 miles away from home, so Mr K and myself travelled to London the night before my surgery leaving the Little Lady in the capable hands of my amazing mum. This was a difficult decision but we felt that Mr K. would need to be there for me for a few days and as we are lucky enough to have family so close we knew that leaving her where she is happy and comfortable was the best idea. I had a small procedure on my back when the Little Lady was 6 months old but we were only gone for a day. This time we would be away for 5 days and it would be the longest we’ve been apart. The idea of being away from her broke my heart and I was also a little apprehensive about how she would be without me because she had started to become incredibly clingy. Secondly my recovery was going to be a difficult time for all of us. 6 weeks of no picking her up followed by another 6 weeks of not lifting her car seat into the car or leaning into her cot with her in my arms. I was going to need a lot of help but hopefully all of this will just be a minor blip.
