I’ve been away for a wee while but I’m back with some big changes.
Life has been pretty busy recently with finishing up work, starting to retrain for a new career and this…
So 2017 is going to be busier than we could have imagined. I still can’t quite believe that we will be a family of 4 and that my little baby will be a big brother. After a loss last Summer I could not be happier or feel more lucky to be bringing another little person into our gang.
The last few months can pretty much be summed up by the following image…
Having been through pregnancy, birth and life with a newborn once already I am excited and nervous at the same time. I am massively grateful to be able to give my son a brother or sister but I no longer have the rose-tinted spectacles I chose for myself the first time around. I’m anxious about the birth after a rough one last time around but I have lots of positive people around me cheering me on. The thought of dealing with a newborn and a toddler, the return to sleep deprivation and the uncontrollable hormones is scary to say the least. At the same time I’m excited for all of those firsts again, especially the firsts for my little boy in his new role as big brother. Most of all I can’t wait to see what our new family member is like, will he/she be like our boy or totally different?
It’s a very different experience this time around but I imagine that we will be feeling those same incredible highs and lows all over again, and whilst they will be familiar it still feels we are stepping into the unknown.
So 2 under 3 and a new career it is, bring it on 2017, we’re ready for you!
