I can hardly believe its New Years Eve. It has been the longest year of my life. I have to say I’m quite glad it’s over. I am however looking forward to 2014 with a positive frame of mind.
This year began with me in work full time, living with my boyfriend and 1yr old daughter hoping and wanting baby two.
We got our wish. At the beginning of March I found out I was pregnant – we were ecstatic, however only 2 weeks later the worries began and unfortunately continued throughout the entire pregnancy. It was stressful, depressing and a very low time for all of us.
Izzy has been wonderful and kept us smiling (even laughing) with her brilliantly funny ways. I cannot tell you how much happiness she brings to our lives.
And on November 19th at 8.30pm an absolutely incredible event happened. Our second daughter arrived safely and healthy. She is beautiful and a true joy. It was worth the stress and worry as I guess I always knew it would be.
It hasn’t been an easy year but its done. I won’t be pregnant again. I won’t have to face that particular worry and stress again. And look what we achieved.
The year ends with me on maternity leave spending all of my day with my wonderful girls.
As 2013 draws to a close all I feel is thankful. Thankful for my baby born healthy without any problems. Thankful for Izzy who makes me smile a million times a day. Thankful for the two of them together as sisters. Thankful to my other half who soppy as it sounds makes my world a better place. Thankful to my family for being so supportive all the time. Thankful for this blog for giving me an outlet and thankful to you for reading it.
Happy New Year. May it bring you happiness and love.
