On this day last year...... 💕
I'm sharing this photo again as it popped up on my 'timehop' today as a year ago (I can't believe it!) and it feels like quite a pivotal day in everything that was to come. I was 37 weeks with Pearl, in the midst of a heatwave and chasing a crazy 17 month toddler around. It was so difficult, I was hot, huge and totally fed up, but at the same time we were just on the cusp of our lives changing forever! It seems odd to think when this photo was taken, Pearl wasn't even born and now I am planning her birthday party. 🎂
This year has been the fastest year of my life, at some points I never thought I'd live to tell the tale of two-under-two but here we are, out the other side with a one and a two year old. Pearl is SO close to walking so a new chapter is about to start and my next challenge - which one to follow when they run in opposite directions! 👀
Summer is always a challenging time with little ones - so much to think about (will they get too hot, suncream, water, shade, picnics, summer holidays, park trips, beach trips, paddling pools, sandy sandwiches.... just to name a few) and this summer is definitely presenting a few new challenges. I'm currently worried about keeping them both entertained for the entire summer, although I know by next year they'll be able to play without me, so I want to enjoy the baby days too.
I just keep telling myself 'it won't be this hard forever' and I know in the blink of an eye, it'll be next summer and things will be totally different again 💕
