6 months!

ihyt-photo-George 6 monthsToday my little baby turned 6 months old! Wow! Everyone says that this age goes by so quickly and you know what, they are right. It only feels like yesterday that I was holding George as a little 8 pound 6oz baby in my arms for the very first time and thinking ‘how the h&ll are we going to look after this kid’?

IMG_2273As overwhelmed as i was at first i absolutely love motherhood. I love seeing my baby grow into a happy little infant. I love seeing him exploring his world (i.e. putting everything in his mouth) and hearing him laugh hysterically at some lame attempt to make him laugh.

But i won’t lie. Being a new parent is hard. There is no instruction manual that comes with a baby and over the first couple of months i was feeling pretty overwhelmed by everything. But we are learning, slowly, and thankfully we have more laughs than frowns these days.

We are starting to see snippets of his personality now. He is still pretty serious, but he does have a cheeky side and he is very, very determined. He started to do this crazy crawl thing a few weeks ago and now we are just waiting for his first teeth to make an appearance.

But all the tears, spit up and poop have been worth it, it’s been such a joy having him in our lives and we are so happy to have started a little family of our own. Happy 6 months my beautiful boy.

New beginnings

Clearly it’s been a while since I blogged anything…almost 6 months to be kind of exact. In terms of a life span, 6 months isn’t a very long time at all but a lot has happened in our life since then. The #1 news was the birth of our beautiful baby boy, George Ellis – he is a keeper.

{Please excuse the spit up, we do that a lot at this age it seems}

I had a glorious 5 months maternity leave over the summer (tick to the best tan i’ve ever had).  My husband thinks that i am exaggerating when i say that it has been one of the best summer’s of my life…but truly it has! I really wanted to enjoy my maternity leave with George and this blog fell by the way side as i cherished every moment with our baby boy. And to be honest, being a new parent is tough, I had enough trouble trying to put dinner on the table every night let alone write on a blog (i really don’t know how some of the mommy blogs do it!). But now i’m back at work and i feel that i have life more or less under control i kind of wanted to start blogging again. I was getting a bit bored with the old format so we have new name (same URL as i couldn’t change that), a bit of a new layout and some new content. Hope you like it.
