Hi there blog friends!!
It’s been two weeks (and a day!) since our beautiful little bubby arrived. Her name is Ruby Allegra and she was clearly very keen to meet us as she made her appearance a few weeks early (at 37 weeks 5 days!)
She was born on Friday the 6th September at 5:13 am. Weighing 2.88kg
I’ll share more details later on as I really want to write down her birth story (I never understood before why people wanted to share that, but having gone through it now I totally get it - it’s such a special, unique experience for everyone and I don’t want to forget the details so I’ll definitely be recording it!)
For now I thought I’d share a few photos that I took at the hospital. The family pics were taken when she was 4 days old (the day we left the hospital) and the others she was just 2 days!
She’s changed so much already since these were taken and I kind of wish I could just freeze time for a little while as it’s rushing by so quickly! Having a newborn is exhausting, and at the same time it is the best thing in the whole world! I feel so so grateful that I get to be her mumma!
Tom has also been such an amazing dad - he’s a complete natural and it’s so beautiful seeing how much he loves her!
That’s it for now but I’ll hopefully be back with some more posts soon when I find bit of time! For now I’m just soaking it all in, enjoying the snuggles and trying to be as present as possible!
If you’d like to stay more updated you can always follow along on Instagram @laurennatalia.co as I do tend to post there quite frequently! It’s my little “creative outlet” at the moment amidst all the things that come along with caring for a newborn!
Lots of Love
