Mystery Blogger Award

This is the third blogger award I’ve been nominated for now! They say three’s a crowd, but it certainly isn’t when it comes to awards. The more the merrier, as far as I’m concerned!

I was nominated for this award by the lovely Tasha at It’s a Tasha thing. Thank you Tasha!

A letter to my daughter at 6 months old

A letter to my baby girl at 6 months old, expressing my love for her and discussing the milestones and firsts of the past month.

Dear Autumn,

I’m sure each month goes faster than the last. How are we at half a year already, my little cutie? I can’t believe it’s been 6 months since I got to meet you and first held you in my arms.

The Sunshine Blogger Quiz

Here are my answers to the Sunshine Blogger Quiz. I think it’s a lovely way to get to know fellow bloggers!

Intrigued, I read this post by The Unnatural Mother a few days ago, which was titled ‘The Sunshine Blogger Quiz’. It turns out that The Sunshine Blogger Quiz is just a bit of fun between bloggers, where they are asked questions by someone and then they ask someone else some questions. It helps readers to find out more about the person behind the blog, which I think is always nice!

The Unnatural Mother didn’t tag anyone specific, she simply asked people to comment on the post if they wanted to take part, so that’s what I did!

When do you start feeling like a mother?

When do you first start feeling like a mom/mother/mum? This post discusses when I first felt like I was a mum. Was it when I took my positive pregnancy test? Was it when I saw my baby on the sonographer’s screen or was it once she was actually born?

It was late January 2016 that I took my positive pregnancy test, so I’ve been thinking a lot about this time last year. I was thinking about when I started being a mum and when I started feeling like a mum. Without getting into a pro-life vs. pro-choice debate, I’d like to share my story and discuss with you when you first started being a mum.

A letter to my daughter at 5 months old

A letter to my baby girl at 5 months old, expressing my love for her and discussing the milestones and firsts of the past month.

Dear Autumn,

Firstly, you’ve grown so much more hair over the last couple of weeks! Where has it all come from all of a sudden? I love stroking it, it’s so soft. We can definitely see that it’s blonde now, the same colour as your beautiful long eyelashes.

A letter to my daughter at 4 & a bit months old

An open letter to my baby girl at just over 4 months old, describing my love for her and pride at all her achievements so far.

Dear Autumn,

I can’t believe how big you’re getting. Sometimes it feels so long since you were born and you were so tiny, sometimes it feels hardly any time at all. One thing is for sure, I can’t imagine life without you and I’m so glad to have you in it.
