Things I’m Loving | The Newborn Edition

What an amazing, {traumatic}, and very wonderful 10 days our family has had.  Baby Hippo finally arrived and we named him Nixon.  We are all so in love with him, it’s hard to believe we could be so lucky.

After 5 days in hospital I am loving that we are home.  Nix and I are taking it easy as my recovery isn’t going to be particularly swift, but I have no desire to take our precious newborn out in this freezing weather anyway!

So much loving all the lovin’ on his little brother that Ethan is doing.  He has surprised me with his complete adoration, patience and concern for Nixon – he has waited so long to be a Big Brother!  I have loved this kid for eight years now and somehow I love him even more as he grows into a new role in our family.

LOVE busting out my Maya wrap again!  E lived in this wrap until he was too chunky at 18 months old for me to manage him and Nixon loves it too.  It was so nice to be mobile {I may indulge my children with cuddles on demand when they are this little and cute!}.  Would you just look at that sweet dollop of baby in that sling?  I die.

Finally, LOVING this amaze prize from the delight that is Sophie Slim and Ecostore.  It’s so awesome to have such beautiful products to use with our teensy little man, thank you so much xx

I live in rural Auckland, New Zealand. Two boys, one big, one not so big and 2 boy dogs belong to me and I them. I love Coca Cola in all of its sugar-less forms and I love you internet. I take way too many pictures of my kids and collect them all here. This is what I am doing when I should be cleaning or cooking or doing other 'useful' things.

  1. Aw he's just delicious – and you look amazing, not traumatised at all. That shot of Ethan and Nixon together is so precious and love how your wee doggy has photo bombed your shot. So lovely to hear that you are home and settling into motherhood again, always an added bonus when yummy treats from the Eco Store are involved too xx

  2. Oh what a bundle of deliciousness! Congrats to you all – hope you get to enjoy this special time in your lives xx
