Blogging again! (at last!)

Hi everyone!

Well here it is, my apology for not keeping up to date on my blog - I'm sorry ;)

Its been a crazy few months and even though I love writing my blog I have a pretty good excuse for why I've been "away." One major reason is that I had my baby 3 months early (a nightmare that I'll share with you some time soon) but thankfully after 11 weeks in hospital she's home and healthy! YAY!

Her name is Lux (which means light) and she's....well...amazing! Ha! No surprises there then!


She was born on the 31st July 2013 at 2 lbs 2oz (995 grams) and was very poorly at first but its amazing how resilient she is as she's now 10 lbs 9oz, weaning, smiling, laughing and pooping a lot! She was born early because my appendix burst when I was 26 weeks pregnant and after 3 days in hospital we hit 27 weeks  and the doctors had to operate as I was pretty ill.  I'll tell the whole story soon but as you can imagine its all still quite fresh and painful to remember but I'm hoping that writing it down will be therapeutic and will do me some good :)

Well theres soooo much to catch up with and this year I've promised myself to be better with blogging. I really love writing about stuff and sharing pics so I'll endeavour to keep it up and to help myself I've downloaded this free "Blogging Planner" by Laura Winslow Photography (super cute) that you can download here (just ignore the 2013 bit!)


I'd say fingers crossed it will help but IT WILL! I'll make sure! And I hope if you find it hard to organise blogging it helps you too. Do you have any tips on how to keep organised and inspired? I'd love to know what helps you :)

Well I think thats it for now but stay tuned for more later this week! PROMISE!

Chat soon,

  4. Wow sounds like you've been through a real ordeal! I'm so glad you and Lux have come out of it ok. My brother and I were born three months early (him down the loo) and even though I have health problems neither of us have had complications from being born so young and small. Congratulations on your beautiful baby! XxxX http:thesecondhandrose.blogspot.co.uk
