It was this day five years ago that my life changed. Forever. One of those unchangeable unfathomable undeniable changes that often only happens once in a lifetime. I birthed my first child, and today marks the fifth year since that momentous day for me.
That day saved my life. That day gave me a family. That day made me change. That day changed everything - it was mammoth, and joyous, scary, actually if I want to be really honest it was terrifying. I could barely take care of myself yet here I am with a little tiny baby suckling happily on my breast. How could she trust me? I didnt know what to do! I was overwhelmed (and then add about a hundred well wishers... overwhelmed is an understatement!).
It was this day five years ago that my lil saviour, Lola, was born. I reflect upon the time we have shared together and am grateful for everything. She is a teacher - she teaches me continuously about life, love, honesty (hmmm we get alot of this!) and I respect her.
What a special special day, and what a special special little lady.
Happy birthday my sweet Lola. I love you!

I have been plugging away as much as I can to get orders out, as it is, this week is the week they will all ship (nappies) - some have gone already, all remaining nappies are in progress.
I know Ive said it before but I just had no idea how hard it would be to actually get behind my machines and back into it. I have a renewed respect for all mothers, and have decided that I just will never ever judge another again. I am in awe of some of my friends, they seem to be able to maintain their family, homes and relationships so much better than I can manage right now.
Ive really loved this journey, and every single day is a treasure, Ive just decided that I need to be more conscious of living in the moment, and not dwell or ponder or overprocess thoughts. It is so much harder than I thought. What a big big year!
Anyway, sorry about that - how about another cute picture??
