For as long as I can remember I’ve always found myself getting super excited for events. I’d daydream about how a certain day would go whether it was a birthday, a trip or a date. I may not have shared that excitement with anyone but I’d usually have the whole thing planned out in my head anyway. I’d say that managing my expectations has been the hardest part of becoming a mother. I suddenly have this unpredictable little person who doesn’t understand that the day is any different or that I’d been looking forward to it for ages. I’m trying…

Lyra started the week by being extremely clingy and so, even though I had willing extra hands to help she only wanted me. I worried that I would never be able to relax although luckily Lyra settled in…

This week has been one of the toughest weeks so far but it’s also been so much fun, weird right?! Lyra has hit the four month sleep regression and as I was used to her sleeping right through the night for weeks it has really been a shock to me. She’s also fighting naps so has been pretty grumpy all day long. Combining that with bad weather has left us both less than happy. That being said when she has given in and napped during the day she is so much fun. She’s really enjoying sitting and she gets the…
