5 things I’ve learnt during my first year as a mum

I had great intentions of writing lots of posts once baby arrived. I was going to fill you in on all the things I was too terrified to write about when I was pregnant. The things I learnt, read, bought, our somewhat tricky journey to getting pregnant, my anxious pregnancy… And then he arrived…. And all you mummies out there will know, time just kind of whizzes past and before you know it you’re lighting the candle ready for the first birthday cake. It seemed like that for me anyway.

So today I thought about some of the things I’ve learnt during our precious first year as a family of three. I still pinch myself that this beautiful little bundle of fun and laughter is all mine. I don’t think the feeling of total and utter gratitude ever leaves you when you have struggled to get pregnant; an unexpected benefit of fertility troubles, and one which I love.
