20 weeks here

20 weeks here

This week our Little Bear is 20 weeks old – nearly 5 calendar months. It blows my mind that he’s been out of me for half as long as he was inside – I can only imagine what the 9 month mark is going to feel like! My life is so incredibly different to what … Continue reading

A Full Life

A Full Life

I always make a point of trying to avoid saying “life is busy”. The phrase seems so over-used in today’s fast-paced society that I don’t even know what it means anymore. So I’m not going to say that I’ve been busy lately. What I am going to say is that life has been full lately. … Continue reading

The Half-way Mark

The Half-way Mark

There was lots of focus on the heart and kidneys, due to family … Continue reading
