Splish splash!

Well, it was a success! We splished and splashed and spun round in circles, and Matilda even went under water!

We're off again today - so I hope it's as good this time (despite it being hotter than a sauna...)

The time has almost come!

Come 4.30pm and we're being picked up to go for our first swimming lesson! I'm so excited, but nervous about meeting lots of new people too - thankfully I know 2 of the mums already going, so I think there will only be 7 other people to get to know...

See you on the flipper side!

I'm gonna have a waterbaby!

Great news - I've got a place to take Matilda on a swimming course from the end of the month! I'm really looking forward to it, but just remembed that I need to buy myself a new swimming costume! My old one had gone threadbear and I threw it out before I was pregnant! I don't think people would appreciate me going in a bikini, and showing off my baby belly to the world...

In other news, she is growing out of 0-3 sleepuits already, and we had to get some 3-6 month ones even though she is only 9 weeks old! We spent loads on her today - she just grows out of everything so quickly...

I'm back!

I know it's been a while, but it's been a pretty busy time for me...

Our beautiful baby girl, Matilda Elizabeth, was born on 6th January at 11.44am, weighing 7lb 5oz. I can't believe she is 9 weeks old already, and the most gorgeous little (big!) thing I have ever laid eyes on. She weighs 11lb 14oz already! I am overwhelmed with love for her - I knew it would get me bad, but I didn't realise it would be this bad!

She is such a happy little thing, already treating us to the cutest smiles. She loves chatting to us in her wonderful baby language, and kicks her legs nineteen-to-the-dozen when she's excited! Her personality is coming out now, and she's becoming a real little person. She is mesmerised by our faces, and she is also mesmerised by the TV (!). She loves lying with her tummy on Daddy's hand, at arms length up in the air. She adores having a bath, and I can't wait to take her swimming.

She's just a wonderful, beautiful, alert baby girl. We wouldn't be without her, and don't know how we lived before she came along!

Here is a montage of photos that I made, but you can read more about her here.

Grrr blogger beta

I signed up to Blogger beta a minute ago to see what it was like, and so far I am not impressed! I've been trying to upload pics of me and my bump, but it won't let me! Very frustrating...

I'll try again later.

Anyone else got their Christmas trees up yet??
