Nobody can prepare you for motherhood. Scratch that. Nobody can prepare you for parenthood full stop. I'm not referencing the sleepless nights and the tummy aches and the painful "rooting" (teeth moving underneath his gummies)... I'm purely talking about the all encompassing consumption that is being a parent. It consumes you in the best ways! I cannot stop thinking about Harrison when I am not near him. I can't stop cuddling him, and kissing him when I am near him. I just want to spend every waking moment with him! You will all have seen my post about Harrison a few months ago where I introduced our little guy to all of you. Well, it still holds that for every reason I have been quiet is because I am wholly devoted to my monster and he is a delicious distraction at the best and worst of times as hard as I try and focus.
Last weekend we spent some time in Underberg at Pennygum Cottages - the place where Row proposed to me and set everything in motion for the life we now live with Harrison being part of it. They had a pretty patch of cosmos growing in their garden and if you follow me on Instagram you will have seen several posts of us enjoying being surrounded by the flowers.
In three sleeps our little angel will be 5 months old and yes you can believe it - the best 5 months of our lives! They have honestly been nothing but sheer joy, even with a few sleepless nights.
