New Life

22 Nov

So I’m in an ever changing place between.

I’m somewhere between being entirely overwhelmed in knowing that we have created a brand new, individual, unique life, with somewhat eternal potential … and knowing the reality of the world is that all 7 billion of us alive on earth right now (never mind all the other people not alive on earth right now) sprung into being in pretty much the same way.

I’m somewhere between feeling very daunted at the responsibility and hugeness of parenthood… and the reassurance of knowing that I mother naturally, and that this is something I’ve always easily expected to step into.

I’m somewhere between nervous and relaxed, ill and well, tired and energetic, excited and quiet, youth and motherhood.

And its a good place to be.

Our tiny one is around 13 weeks old, and we are due to meet her or him around the end of May. We can’t wait! Do join us on this journey – I’m planning on keeping this blog updated regularly.

Love, Carolyn x
