As soon as I knew I was having a girl, I knew instantly that I would be able to live out my fantasy of having a room to decorate with rainbows, clouds and unicorns!

#babyshowergoals

The baby shower was amazing yesterday! I am so thankful to have some amazing friends! The request for books for Liberty to create a library for her was a success! Asked people to bring a book which reminded them of their childhood or ones that taught important lessons and so happy with the selection n! I just need to add my additions of ‘Funnybones’ and ‘The Magic Key’ and Dave’s addition of the ‘Manchester United Annual 2018-19’ 👶🏻💦📚

#SkoolsoutforSummer! Maternity Leave starts now!

I am feeling such a wide variety of emotion! I have now finished work for maternity leave! It has been a stressful day with network issues, cancelled trains and my system crashing 10 minutes before I am supposed to leave #standard ! 4 weeks until Liberty is due so let the nesting commence and when I can crack open my Prosecco! I am so thankful to all everyone at work for your kind gifts, messages and support and can’t wait for her to meet her extended family! 🤰🏻➡️🤱🏻

Please stop hiding and let me see more of you – 4D baby scan round 2

With Liberty being naughty on Monday when we had a scan in London, Ultrasound Direct allowed us to have a rescan for free even though I am classed as too far along! Went to their York clinic today and they tried so hard to get some more pictures but she is still being naughty! #likemotherlikedaughter managed to get another picture, see her yawn and see that she doesn’t just suck her thumb, she puts her whole hand in her mouth!! God I love her! #hellodaughter

It is almost bittersweet! You get a reason to go on holiday however it will never be the same again! As candlelit dinners and ‘do not disturb’ turns into Bottle feed and Bedtime stories at 7pm.
