All is Well

I've been wanting to update since, well September... but having a baby really doesn't leave room in my life for all of those lovely introspective, fill-the-hours things like blogging, anymore. I'm lucky that I had so many years of self indulgence! I hadn't read a book either since pregnancy, until I got wise and started downloading books onto my iphone. The only time I have to read is during nursing when I can't hold a book because I need my hands, or right after when he's fallen asleep, and its dark. So I am glad for my iphone.
This will be really short, because its 2 AM and the only reason I'm not asleep is that I ate chocolate and I'm buzzed on the caffeine.
I am so in love with my little boy. I love being a mommy MORE than I ever dreamed I would. Nurturing a child is the most delicious thing ever. That said, when I make parenting mistakes, its so very scary, he's so precious and open and vulnerable. Tho he does seem to recover from any and all booboo's very quickly.
My boy is ten months old now. He is such a Leo, totally outgoing, smiling and calling out to people he see's(it really seems like mostly pretty young women!) and charming them. He is strong and energetic and happy. He sings and loves animals and waves bye-bye and this week he has taken a few staggering steps letting go of what he was holding onto in the playground and throwing himself into my arms. This week he started to dance for the first time to music we had on. He also clapped his hands for the first time. (now he claps every time he nurses!LOL.) So much has happened this week. He is evolving so fast its dizzying.
Here are a few recent pics of my Noonie (where do we get these nicknames?). Enjoy them.

  4. Hi,

    I’m wondering if you might be able to help me with something?
    My name is Emma Furniss and I work for a TV casting company called Casting House where we specialise in finding people for TV shows and documentaries.
    We are currently casting for a documentary series for the Discovery channel at the moment all about unique and unusual pregnancies. As part of this we are looking for lots of different women in different situations to share their pregnancy stories. One of the particular stories we are looking into and would like to follow is that where the mother to be is 50 or over.
    The show focus on women’s different and varying pregnancy stories and their individual journeys. We are therefore looking for extraordinary women who are currently going through a unique or unusual pregnancy to share their story , their challenges,
    and their day to day routines and how they are preparing for the birth of their child.
    From sharing the news with your loved ones, to medical appointments and baby showers – right up to the big day itself - we want to explore the realities – the highs and lows, the excitement and the inevitable anxieties that being an extraordinary pregnant mum brings, and help you share your pregnancy story.
    I was wondering if you may be interested in having a chat with me to see if you may know of any women over the age of 50 who are currently pregnant or if you might be able to point me in the direction of good portals to contact?
    Please feel free to contact me on emma@Castinghouse.co.uk
