You are in Year Two
Dear Mads, It's time for me to write you another well overdue letter as you start back to school in year two. Indeed the last time I wrote you a letter was on the day you started year one, so a whole year has passed. When you were a baby and a toddler I used to write to you often,...

{The Ordinary Moments 17} #14 ‘How are you One?’
My Beautiful Little Bird, How are you One? On Monday evening of this week we popped your pyjamas on and I fed you as I always do. I then took you into your room and instead of putting you down straight away like I normally do I held you for that little bit longer. I thought back to that same...

{The Ordinary Moments 17} #10 ‘You are Eleven Months’
My Beautiful Little Bird, Yesterday you turned eleven months. In all honesty to me it feels like sort of a milestone month, even though you wouldn't normally think of it that way. The last month before one. Probably the most bittersweet one of them all. Speeding towards being a whole twelve months old. A year. 365 days. No longer a...

{THE ORDINARY MOMENTS 17} #6 ‘YOU ARE FOUR’
To my Dearest LL, Firstly I should start this letter by apologising to you for not writing you a little note for absolutely ages. I looked back at my letters to you thinking that the last one I would have written to you would have probably been your last birthday, but I am embarrassed to say it was even longer...

{THE ORDINARY MOMENTS 17} #3 ‘YOU ARE NINE MONTHS’
My Beautiful Little Bird, You turned nine months old this week. It's a cliche to say it, but I really can't believe it. Nine months of having you in our lives. I couldn't possibly imagine not having you here now, it's funny because I couldn't imagine being a five, four was our normal, yet now I look at photos of...

{Our Little Bird} I’m a Bad Mummy- A Long Overdue Update…
My beautiful little bird, I need to start this letter with an apology. I haven't written to you since you were two months and you just turned five months last week. This makes me feel awful because I wrote to your sisters so much more than this. However at the same time I don't feel guilty because the reason I...

A Letter to You going into Year One
Dearest Mads, So here we are again. The night before the start of a new school year. This time last year I had the biggest anticipation in my tummy. It was filled with nerves, with butterflies dancing around, and every time I thought about the prospect of you going to school, it would make tears spring to my eyes. I...

{Our Little Bird}- You are Two Months Old
To my Little Bird, I cannot believe that I am already writing you your two month letter, I think because I was a little late writing the one month one, but it has come around so quickly. Time is speeding by and I want to grasp it with both hands and tell it to slow down. But at the same...

{Our Little Bird}- You Are One Month Old
To my Little Bird, On the 18th April 2016 our lives changed forever yet again. For nine long months I said a little wish when I went to bed every evening, I wished that you would be born safe and sound. And at exactly 10.06am on that Monday morning I got my wish. You arrived into the world screaming and...
