So, one minute it was March and I was awaiting the arrival of our daughter, the next minute she's here smiling, giggling and rolling and its nearly August. It feels just like yesterday that we bought our little newborn back from hospital and started to settle into life as a four. Our chirpy (read chopsy), happy and contented little Anwen is an absolute joy and such a wonderful addition to our family.
I thought I might have updated this blog a bit more than I have done since her arrival (i.e. at least once) but as it turns out I rather lost my blogging groove when life's pace stepped up a gear.
However I've found great enjoyment in documenting life's adventures through Instagram. Its a great form of social media and I've experienced a real sense of community from it. If you use it then do look up and follow @littlemaldod for more up to date happenings.
As well as welcoming Anwen into the world in March we've had a fun filled couple of months. We've celebrated mine and Wilf's birthdays, spent time visiting friends and family and had a lovely week in West Wales in a delightful farmhouse. We've also had lots of lovely home and garden time and have been making the most of the amazing sunshine. Here's a few photos of what we've been up to.
A break from the shop while we adjusted to life as a four has been lovely (and much needed) but I knew I'd want to get back to little maldod over the summer, so here I am! Yes in case you've missed it the shop will be open for business again from this Friday 1st August (gulp!)
I'm very exited to share some lovely new products that I have planned as well as making some little maldod versions of things I'm finding really useful with a little one again.
I'll share further details of these in future blog posts but this feeding cover is a small taster of what's to come.
If I'm honest with you, as well as being excited I'm also slightly nervous about opening up the doors again. I'd got used to running things with one toddler who could be depended on to have epic afternoon naps and to go down well each night (SO lucky, I know.) Now there's another little person around and time is even more precious. I've therefore decided to make a small change to how the shop is run but I'll update you on that next time.
I'll also share some details of a special offer on samples that could be making their way to you very soon.
Thanks so much for stopping by and I look forward to welcoming you back to little maldod on Friday!
