And just like that Emily is one! I honestly can’t believe this day has finally come. The year literally just flew by. One crazy year of watching my beautiful baby girl turn into a crazy little character. If you want to see how we celebrated her first birthday, please continue reading.
This is slightly late as my little babe is now 9 and a half months old, but I didn’t want to not post it because it was such an exciting month for us. I still am finding it quite hard to gather my head around the fact you’ve been on this earth 9 whole months. It feels like only yesterday that you were a tiny newborn and now you’re this big, bold baby. So much has changed in the last couple of months and you’re starting to learn things so quickly. It’s all very exciting and also somewhat sad because you’re becoming so independent and don’t need your mommy as much. Now before I start getting too emotional, let’s get into your 8 month update because it’s definitely been the most exciting month yet.
They say labour is the only blind date where you know you’ll meet the love of your life. For me, that quote couldn’t be more true. Here’s my own labour and delivery story.
Before I found out I was pregnant, I really had no idea what I was about to get myself into. I had no idea what to expect or what was going to happen to my body, but now after going through it for nine and a half months, these are the things I wish I knew when I was pregnant. I doubt it would have helped me in any significant way, but at least I would have had some idea. If I’ve learned anything, it’s to expect the unexpected as pregnancy is one wild ride.
