Wordless Wednesday – 7 Days of Parker

Yesterday Parker turned one week old. In a blur of all things newborn, that week went really fast. Here’s a photo from each day of that first week.

Introducing Parker

Born at 12:20am on Tuesday 28th October, this little man. The newest member of my little family, Parker Reed.

Mum and Parker

Today was his due date so I thought it fitting to write this post today. Actually that’s not true. Today was his due date but I’ve been in a haze of broken sleep and cracked nipples and haven’t written more than a Facebook status update since going into labour.

We are all doing well and leaving hospital as soon as I could was the best decision I ever made. I was still there longer than I would have liked because getting discharged is a lengthy process of waiting for people to come and do the checks they need to do. They say they will be right there but it actually takes six hours for them to get there and do the checks and sign you out so you can leave.

Now that I am home, we have been able to enjoy these early days together as a family. I have been able to sleep more than I ever would have in a noisy maternity ward and I have had fresh air and natural light and proper food. Good food. I am loving being home with my little family. My perfect complete little family of five.




Wordless Wednesday: Superheroes

The kids were very lucky to receive some fun costumes thanks to Warner Bros. They had hours of fun playing superheroes.

The Batmobile is in for repairs, so Batman has to ride the Thomas Scooter.


So busy fighting crime and stuff, Batman fails to realise his shoes are on the wrong feet.

Cutest Robin in the whole universe.

Wordless Wednesday – Hanging Back

I love hanging back and taking photos of my family from behind. It’s candid and tells more of the story of what’s happening. I have quite a collection of photos I have taken of the backs of my family. I hope grouping some of them here like this doesn’t look too creepy stalkerish or Blair Witch like.
