8 Months Old

This has been a big month so far for Clara.

She has moved into her own room this week and has taken to it surprisingly well. The only reason she wasn’t in her own room a couple of months ago is because we were using her room as a dumping ground over Christmas and hadn’t got round to clearing it out yet! But even though I know its time, I’m quite sad that its the end of another ‘baby stage’.

15 weeks: Part of the Family

Clara has been in our lives for 15 weeks now.

In that time we have quickly adjusted to life as a family of four. Izzy is still very happy about being a big sister – she is always hugging and kissing Clara and telling her how much she loves her. Yesterday, there was yet another amazing moment of sibling love when she she took Clara’s hand and said “I’m so happy that you are here”. And she genuinely is.

The feeling is mutual – Clara’s face lights up when Izzy is around. When Izzy goes to sit next to her on the floor she reaches out to hold onto her hand or clothes.

One week old today

I can’t believe its been a week since our beautiful girl arrived. She has settled in well at home and her proud big sister has taken so well to suddenly having a new baby in the house.

Baby Bump Art

I’ve seen some awesome pictures of pregnant women who have had their baby bumps professionally painted. I decided to try a diy version and bought some face paint crayons.

Proud big sister-to-be

Izzy seems to be really taking to the idea of having a brother or sister. When she talks about it there is such pride in her voice and on her face, and it makes us very proud of the way she is handling such a big change in her life. Of course once Nemo is actually here I know we will have some challenges to face and her enthusiasm may be tested, but throughout the pregnancy she has been preparing for being a big sister.
