It only feel likes yesterday that we were sat in the hospital cuddling over baby 5 minutes after she was born… last Tuesday she was 5 months old!
Over the last couple of weeks we’ve hit a lot of firsts as well… first time in her big girl pram, starting to sit up on her own, first sleepover with her big cousin, first proper giggles and responses to us, first big girl bath… our little girl is growing up!!
I know everyone says it but the last 5 months really have flown by! Amelia’s really starting to get her own little personality and really loves to play now! Her favourite toy is her Lamaze dragonfly and her game boy chew teether toy. She’s also found a new love for her little Einstein’s bouncer 💖 me not so much as I’ve heard the music it plays ALOT!
We love going swimming every week, attending sensory & our favourite rhythm time! The development during that lesson is amazing to see and we love teaching Daddy the songs to sing with us at home! She is definitely a singing and dancing loving baby and I can’t wait for her to join me, her aunties and her cousin on the dance floor!
It isn’t all smiles and giggles though… times can be hard, very hard! From the horrendous few weeks of colic, stomach ache, reflux and now teething! There’s always something! As mummies and daddies we have to try and be strong and some days all they want is a cuddle, a tummy rub or someone to be there and say it will all be ok!
Being a mum is one of the hardest but most rewarding things I have ever done in my life! I’ve learnt more about myself in 5 months than I have in 26 years! Some days I sit and wonder why and then I look at Amelia and remember that’s why 💖💖
What’s everyone early memories of being a new mummy or daddy??
