Celebrating a whole month with our little Benjamin.

Marvelling at how much he (and we) has changed already. 

Seeing him smile for the very first time (and having a little cry about it!) 

Feeling like we’re starting to get a handle on this parenthood thing (very, very slowly…)

Playing host to a whole bunch of visitors, who are definitely here to see us and not our new arrival… 

Plundering my new cookbooks (Student Eats and The Savvy Cook) for midweek dinner inspiration. 

Flexing my craft muscles for the first time in a while (helped very much by Jess!) 

Covering my eyes during this season of Game of Thrones. 

Enjoying fancy afternoon tea and pottery painting in York for a lovely hen do. 

Making the most of being able to eat cheese, steak & sushi again.

Searching for a dress to wear to a wedding next month… without much luck! 

Planning a capsule wardrobe for autumn/winter – it’s a dream not being pregnant! 

Enjoying a long bank holiday weekend as a family of three, eating and drinking our way around Leeds. 

Taking a million baby photos. 

Googling a million baby-related topics. 

Brunching at Issho, but sadly not taking advantage of their unlimited Prosecco offer. I’ll be back! 

Sleeping less than I maybe ever have (but feeling a lot less tired than I expected to). 

Watching the new series of Bake Off with an open mind, and a plate full of cake. 

Checking out my new desk at our new office (and sort of already wishing I was back at work – if only there were enough hours to do everything!). 

Getting used to being a mum. It’s kind of the best.
