The Gallery.

Since i started my blog i have started reading many other fabulous baby blogs. I find they inspire me to write posts more often and put more of myself into what i write. I have become a little immersed in the world of Twitter and the community of bloggers on there. One of the blogs Sticky Fingers runs a Gallery weekly where she invites bloggers to post a photo they most feel sums up her chosen theme and write about why they chose it. This week is Motherhood, this week i'm going to take part.


After looking through many, many photos i have taken since Tabitha-Lo was born its was this one that makes me feel most like a mum. I vividly remember the feeling of being in that black cab. The smell of the seat leather on that hot day, the way the driver was trying to hide his smile at our excitement, everything. I remember ringing my mum to tell her the scan was fine and trying really hard not to cry.

I remember how it was only then holding that scan that i really believed i was going to have a baby and be a mum. After seven years of believing Motherhood was not going to be part of my life i was holding a photo of my baby, and she was perfect.

  1. That is a lovely photo I remember how I felt when I saw my baby for the first time :-) infact reading that post has made me quite teary because my baby will be a year old in 4 weeks time, and I can't believe how fast this special time has gone already.
    You look so happy here :-) as they say, you are glowing!

  3. I recently found the 7 year old scan photos of my DD - nothing quite matches that moment when it becomes "real" that there is a baby in your tummy!

    You look so happy x
