Before your arrival I had honestly thought that I’d end up having so much more opportunity to share our new life as a family in this space…throw in a global pandemic into the maternity leave mix and it would seem that life had different plans in mind!
You continue to be an absolute source of joy in our life, an emotion that thankfully overshadows all of the others that come quick and fast during this current climate. I think it goes without saying that this isn’t quite the maternity leave/ introduction to your life that we were hoping for, but we’ve done our very best to give you as many opportunities and wonderful experiences as we could do and as safely as possible.
You continue to leave us in awe, how much your cheeky little personality is developing. You are curious, fearlessly independent, so sociable and often quite the chatter box! Your strength and determination to reach milestones often leaves us shocked but we relentlessly swell with pride ❤
I feel honoured to have been your very first word and you are now so close to crawling and are curiously delving into the exciting world of food via baby led weaning which you are smashing so far! Soon comes the time that you will gradually move into your own bedroom and I honestly don’t know how to feel as within the blink of an eye you have already became a proper little boy ❤
This past half a year has been an adventure for us, one which has bonded the 3 of us in ways unmatched. No matter the odds, I continue to look toward the bright future I feel ahead of us; though times are uncertain, our little family unit keeps me strong.
Until next time,
