A little update on life..

LUKE IS WALKING!
I was not ready for this! When Luke turned 10 months old, he started walking.. He is way too small, right?!
Look at those tiny legs. Not ready for this milestone, but I am sooo proud of him. He will be one so soon!! He had an early joint birthday party with his best mate, Ava. She was born the day after him, so it was perfect!
Matching jumpers, hell yes!
The party was a whole 16 and 17 days before their birthdays, but when is the best time to have a birthday party for someone born on Christmas and Boxing Day?! We had such a great time with our friends and family, but I am still in denial that my baby is soon to be a year old..
My mother-in-law made them a cake (see below – isn’t it amazing!?) and our dear friend Emma, made them the most gorgeous smash cakes! Luke didn’t get to sleep until 3am – maybe it was all the sugar!!!
When Luke was a few weeks old, Ava’s mum (Jemma, who I met at an NCT class when we were pregnant!) and I decided to attend a parenting class. Although we met up a lot and had each other, we thought it would be a good excuse to meet some local mums and babies that were a similar age to ours – how right were we?!
Including us, there were seven mums and seven babies and we are all still great friends now and try to meet as often as possible. The picture above was the first we took of the babies together. The one below is the most recent.
A few weeks ago, the first baby of the group turned one, and now the whole group are catching up! I cannot get over it how fast they are all growing. They are all incredible kids and I have grown so fond of them and their mums!
He has learned to pose for the camera – every time I hold my phone up, he pulls the above face. SOOO cute.
We met Father Christmas… Luke was not a fan…

SO in conclusion, life has been busy..!

I decided to go back to work-work in October and very quickly found a job doing what I love in a lovely Hotel not too far from me. It has been fab and I’m really enjoying it. Spending time away from Luke has been tough, but his grandparents are enjoying the time with him, and he loves them!
Greg is still my total rock – I literally don’t know how I would function without him. He is just amazing and such a fantastic dad.
I still adore blogging, and I am doing my best to find more time to do more posts. I have a few in the pipeline, so keep an eye out!
One thing I have found really difficult since being a mum is prioritising my time. The second Luke naps (which isn’t often anymore) or he is eating his lunch in his highchair, all I want to do is relax. As a result, my house is not where I want it to be and my blog has been neglected. I have been putting a lot of work into it recently – you will see it all soon!
Thank you for still sticking around and reading my posts.
I love you all
