We celebrated the Christening of both Kaden and Florence last Sunday at St Thomas’ Church, followed by a small party afterwards. We had such a lovely day and cannot thank everyone enough for coming to celebrate our faith and our children on that special day. It was the first time the families had all been together, and was lovely!

The church service was short and sweet, with a really wonderful vicar leading the baptism. Kaden was brilliant and enjoyed having the attention on him, especially when the vicar let Kaden splash him with water too!

We had chosen Godparents for the children, and would like to thank them for accepting their roles in our children’s lives.

Florence wore a beautiful white Christening gown, the exact one her Nan Lorraine wore for her Christening day years ago. Although she slept through the majority of the day, she was a little star and couldn’t be more loved by all.

Kaden thoroughly enjoyed seeing all of his family and friends together for his special day, and was even more overjoyed at all the Lego he received as a result!

It was such a special day spent with the people we love the most, and will definitely be remembered and spoken about for years to come.

Thank you for reading.

The Summer of 2018

 A roundup of Summer 2018.

JULY

Just as the summer holidays began we were blessed with the safe arrival of our daughter, Florence Grace. So the first few weeks were spent welcoming visitors at home to meet her and send their well wishes. We had our newborn photoshoot when Florence was one week old.

 

AUGUST

Our first ‘big’ trip out for the day was to Skegness. By this point I was comfortable breastfeeding in front of family, but this was a test to get used to breastfeeding publicly. It was fine (thank goodness) and although it’s still a learning process, both me and Florence are getting better at it as it becomes easier with time. We’ve taken Florence to Hunstanton, Leicester and Sheffield for day trips, so she certainly hasn’t been bored!

Kaden spends a lot of time talking and singing with baby Florence, it’s obvious how besotted he is with his little sister. I worried so much about how this new arrival would affect the dynamics of our family, and yet it is as if nothing has changed. Florence has easily entered our world and it feels as if she has always been here somehow. All of our hearts are very full.

We’ve spent time with Mitch’s family as they prepared for Mason to go to University in September.

 

SEPTEMBER

Kaden returns back to school, ready for Year 2. It will be an adjustment back into the school routine from the rather relaxed summer. I am also returning back to one of my jobs this week, I’m looking forward to getting back into it and having something to do during the week! This job involves admin, social media, and website editing, and as I can do most of it from home I don’t mind going back so soon. It will be good to have my mind busy again.

Other exciting things we have planned for September are that both Kaden and Florence are being Christened in just a couple of weeks. It will be lovely to get the family together and celebrate both the children. Then both me and Mitch are getting new tattoos. So there is a lot to look forward too!

Thank you for reading.

Newborn Photoshoot

Florence’s Newborn Photoshoot

It doesn’t seem like five minutes ago that I was in Luana’s studio having my Maternity Shoot and chatting about pregnancy and how excited I was. Now Florence is here, and we returned to Luana for a Newborn Shoot.

Myself and Mitch are thrilled with the photos and can’t wait to share them with friends and family. Capturing this moment in time, where we became a family of four and welcomed our beautiful baby girl into the world, is so special and these photos will be treasured and used as memories for years to come.

It is completely obvious how smitten we are with baby Florence, especially her big brother.

We couldn’t be happier with the photos and products provided by Luana.
