Bess and a smartphone

with 8 Comments

My last post was exactly a month and a half ago. Since then a lot has happened. I gave birth to my wonderful daughter Bess. She was a big girl and is so far happily breastfeeding and putting on weight. Being a mom for the first time is both amazing and very exhausting.

Picture of her sleeping in the cot made for my mother which i also slept in. John painted the animals on the side and my sis embroidered the bedding.

Today I am blogging from my new smartphone. Hopefully this will mean more regular blogposts in future.

    So very glad to see you on here! A smartphone is a boon when posting. I need to get my blog going more myself.

    The cot looks so lovely. I have something to send to you and we are looking at tickets to come over. Will write you about it soon.

    Tilykke!!! Congratulations with the amazing baby Bess 🙂 Little A also sleep in the same little bed has his father and grandmother did – love those little heirloom pieces – hope she’s a good sleeper and that you are feeling well. Here my little one has started on solid food – oh time goes by so quick.

      Thank you Heidi.
      Lovely to hear that your baby uses his heirlooms too. It’s a wonderful thing.
      Wow has he already begun solids – seems like yesterday he was born. The last year has just flown by for me. Can’t keep up!

    Oh I’ve been looking forward to a peek, beautiful images. How lovely to have the cot you were in too – my daughter was in the crib I was in as a baby, soon outgrew it though.

    Look after yourself, it is exhilarating being a mother but yes exhausting especially the early months.

    Look forward to more on your blog, just think of all the lovely things you can make for Bess when you have more energy and time.

      Hi Dawn,
      Cool that your daughter could use your old cot too. My mother says we can’t call this cot antique though 😉 – only Vintage!
