Well, what a year that was!
It started with an explosion of hope and exciting ideas for my felty world and then quickly had a massive turn around when I found out that I was pregnant!
The first half of the year was then completely occupied with learning what my body was up to and how best to treat it so that my little sprog would grow strong and healthy.
- It's amazing how much time that takes up in your mind. All I could think about was baby, body, baby, body...
And to be honest, it sounds a bit silly, but that was my entire year!!
I have no idea what happened last year. I'm pretty sure that I spent most of it tucked away in a little bubble, ignoring the world!
And then, on the 24th November 2013
I gave birth to my little son
weighing 7lbs 8ozs
It was an absolutely amazing experience, and it hasn't put me off having more at all.
I'm sure I'll write a bit more about it all soon, I want to share my birthing story to any mum-to-be who's petrified like I was.
I guess you only hear the horror stories when you're looking into births, but they're not all like that, I promise!
And to end my amazing roller coaster of a year, I enjoyed a wonderful family Xmas with my son as a brand new edition!
What more could I possibly have wanted for Xmas?!
It has been amazing.
And now I'm venturing into the new year with a whole new outlook on life and it's precious little things.
Last year my New Year's motto was
'Make The Little Things Fun'
And this year I'm going to stick with it. My son, being a little thing himself, has been a never ending source of fun... stress and worry too, but I'll focus on the fun!!
And as he grows this year, Making The Little Things in his life Fun will be my ultimate aim!
Strange as it is, changing nappies has already become the funnest thing for us.
There's fairy lights, rattles, visually stimulating books and lots of tummy tickles at changing time! Not to mention a boogie to my Disney CDs!
Make The Little Things Fun
After all, what's more important than little smiles to fill your day!
Now... it's taken me about a week to get this post all sorted and written out (Mr Finn has been quite a demanding chap!) but I hope to be writing much more from now on!
We're getting into a routine, him and me, and this new year I would like to concentrate on my blog and figuring out how to sneak a little bit of felting into my day!
Happy New Year
to you all!
What are your New Years resolutions and plans for 2014?
