#R2BC - Reasons to be cheerful... 1, 2, 3




looking back at 2012 I've spent half of the year being pregnant and the other half learning to be a mum. i must say the second half is by far my favorite. Pregnancy wasn't exactly fun and even though being a mum is proper hard work, even overwhelming at times, it also is one of the most beautiful things I have ever done in my whole life. If I was ever to name one selfless act I'm sorry but being a mum isn't that. i love my little guy, in a way that I never thought was possible and whenever you do something for love you do it for that amazing feeling love brings. I do everything I do when looking after lovely Harry not because I am this saint of a person but because I want to see him happy as that makes me happy. so agree with me? Not selfless at all.

On that note - and to take part of one of my favorite memes for the first time- here are my three reasons to be cheerful this week:

1 - I have a lovely little boy, or a big baby as you wish. He is healthy and strong and as far as I can tell he is also a happy baby. I love the way his face lights up with a smile about a thousand times a day. He is extremely curious and inquisitive and I just cannot have enough of watching him discovering this world.

2 - I have an amazing partner who really embraced the daddy inside of him - who knew he had it in him at all? - I can see in his eyes how much he loves Harry and I just love watching them playing and bonding. Every morning after my cuddles Harry looks for his dad and he now gets smiles as huge as the ones I get after a good feed. He might not be perfect and neither am I but he is turning out to be a great dad and partner.

3 - my boobs. lol nope, I didn't go crazy or am about to write about my neckline. Feeding my little guy is one of the most amazing accomplishments of my life. As many others, we had a bit of a ruff start with lots of  challenges but thankfully we both stuck to it and 5 and a half months on my boy is healthy and happy and i'm back to reason 1.

  6. such a lovely post! your reasons are wonderful. I'm enjoying feeding my baby girl still too. (I struggled with my first to get started so it is definitely something not to be taken for granted isn't it) and it is such special bonding time. xxx

    1. hi there, thank you for coming. Once he stops breastfeeding I must write about out experience as we struggled through two months of very hit and miss methods. We do certainly take it for granted, now whenever I meet someone who is pregnant my first advice is; visit your local breastfeed support group before the baby comes.
