Mother’s Day is just around the corner! If you have been struggling to find the perfect gift for your mother this year, or are a chronic last minute planner, I may be able to help 🙂
A Little Story First
This year will actually be my first Mother’s day being the mum! Oddly, the thought didn’t even cross my mind until I was talking with my own mum about her Mother’s Day celebration. She will be away for the actual day this year, so I celebrated with her a few days ago instead.
She reminded me that from this year on, Mother’s Day will always carry a duel meaning for me now.
Our sweet little Willow has arrived, and so has motherhood! It’s only been six week so far (at the date of writing this), and our exciting journey together has just begun. Already however, I have learned so much from our sweet baby girl.
She had a bit of a bumpy road to begin with– a good number of hospital stays, nurse proddings, and more blood tests than some people have in a lifetime, but now that’s all behind us and we’re home sweet home!
Willow starts each day with smiles and gurgles on her changing mat where she has learned to pull mummy’s hair. Her neck muscles are rapidly strengthening and growing now, as is her desire to look around at her new colourful world.
