Evie

I have something very exciting to share with you. It's absolutely HUGE in fact, the most amazing and wonderful thing to have ever happened to me. Those of you who read my blog regularly will know that normally my reason for not blogging is down to my work, but for my recent absence I now have a much better excuse! On Sunday 25th July at 2.15 in the morning I became a Mummy!!! Our little daughter Evie was born, weighing a very healthy 9lbs 3! Needless to say the last six weeks have been an absolute whirlwind, Phil and I have been knee deep in nappies, muslins and babygrows! It's taken a while but we are finally getting into more of a routine. We are definitely learning what Evie's little squeaks and different cries mean and getting out of the house no longer takes up half a day! Evie's a very alert little bubba and so is especially keen to do anything other than sleep, therefore finding the time to make a cup of tea let alone write a post has proven to be rather a challenge! Everyday it amazes me how she seems to change a little- I can't believe how quickly she is growing and in the past week she has started to smile which I find so joyous it makes all the sleep deprivation pale into insignificance :)
Workwise I will be having a break so Evie and I can spend as much time with each other as possible. I will still be blogging though but if there is a longer gap in between posts you'll know why ;) Got to go now and wake the little munchkin up for her tea but I'll leave you with a picture! :) Bye bye for now xx

Emma, I didn't even know you were pregnant, goodness me, how did you keep that so quiet, Evie is absolutely gorgeous. My goodness, how have you managed to tweet at all, let along blog, let alone design! I kept reading it thinking you were fooling us and the baby was going to be a rabbit!
I imagine you to be really petite, are you? cos 9 lb is huge if you are!!
Am delighted for you and Phil, that is wonderful news and she is so so gorgeous

Thank you everyone- I know I'm biased but she is a cutie isn't she!! x

Huge congratulations - seriously how did you keep that so quiet? Unless I missed a tweet along the way I hadn't a clue! I assumed you were super duper busy with work etc. You're so tiny - 9lbs is huge - but I bet you wouldn't change things for the world. Wishing you and your new addition every happiness. Really super news!
