Firstly, the lovely Bron at baby space is featuring Lalie's nursery today which is very exciting... do pop over and have a look, it's a gorgeous post!
Secondly, thank you for your kind and reassuring words in response to my last post. I just wanted to say that despite not achieving many of the things I had set out for myself, I am happy and confident with where I am at as a mother. I'm not sure that came across in my post - reading back, I did seem a bit 'down' on myself. Having a child is such a steep learning curve - you really can't prepare for it. For me, I'm starting to find a rhythm that centers on being guided by my child, not by a list. I guess sometimes you can't see the forest for the trees. So I'm allowing myself to step back and appreciate the view.
I loved reading about your birth experiences, and it delighted me to sense such enthusiasm and eagerness from many of you to discuss experiences that hadn't gone as you'd planned. It's amazing how - after the fog clears - you can be left feeling so triumphant, even though your journey had gone so far off course. In the end, we all make it home.
Happy weekend to you!
...oh, and don't forget the giveaway!
