Wow, it’s been a busy weekend but I can’t complain! It all kicked off on Friday evening when a friends baby was born, the photos were just too cute for words. Saturday got off to a quick start, with a gentle gym session followed by a manicure. This wasn’t any old manicure – this was the ‘Baby Shower’ manicure, yep, you guessed it baby themed nails!!! Absolutely love them.
After a quick baking session where I made another batch of those awesome double chocolate cookies I headed off for my weekly reflexology session – it’s just so relaxing and the little one loves it too!
After all of that I was feeling pretty tired but did a few chores on the way home before heading out to meet a friends three week old little boy. It was a complete eye-opener as to what our lives will become in a few short weeks. He was snoozing away in his moses basket ‘drunk’ after his last feed – just adorable. I really hope our little one is so well behaved. It was great to chat to some new parents about the first few weeks, birth and what to expect and we left feeling reassured about several things which was fantastic.
Sunday morning was another busy one a baby first aid course – we learnt all about CPR, choking, burns and dealing with injuries. While the course was intense and I hope we never have to do any of these things we now feel slightly more prepared!
Sunday afternoon was the highlight of my weekend – my baby shower! Can’t actually believe it had finally arrived. I was slightly apprehensive but my friends and mother-in-law did the most amazing job. We had so much fun playing games, eating and guessing which chocolate bar was in the pooey nappy! The little one got completely spoilt with so many gorgeous gifts which we can’t wait to use.
Now it’s back to work with a bump on Monday morning but I had such a lovely weekend, next stop…baby time!
