So, I've somehow skipped July's insta-post but I have the best excuse ever, I was kind of busy popping out a baby but I'm getting back on track now and here's a beautiful August in Instagram shots. This month was kind of dominated by baby Blue as it was his first month outside of my tummy and it's been a complete whirlwind of first meetings and sleep deprivation; but of course, it's been amazing and these are a series of photos I won't be forgetting in a hurry.
Top row: My boys together, I can't even express how excited I am to see them grow up together and how proud I am of them both; Baby Blue absolutely loving his Poco Baby Hammock; First time using my Medela swing breast pump—just a practice, we haven't given B a bottle yet.
Middle row: The end of my pregnancy series (of which I still need to blog about!), at 41 weeks my little boy had already arrived; My Dad holding baby Blue; a shot of our new boy turning two weeks old!
