Birth Cards - Keepsake DIY

I'm not really the sentimental type but I do struggle with throwing some things away that I think either of our daughters might want to see later in life. Because of this I have had a bunch of greetings cards that were sent to us after Evelyn's birth sat in a box on top of her wardrobe where they have been for the last 27 months.

Rosanna's 1 Month Update

One month old! I'm writing this with Rosanna fast asleep on my lap & Evelyn fast asleep on the floor as she decided her bedroom was too far away from us but didn't want to be on this bed. Love her.

Rosanna's 3 Week Update

It's a cliche, but I feel like these last three weeks have gone so quickly but I also feel like Anna has been with us forever.

Rosanna's 2 week update

Today is Georges first day back at work after his paternity leave & my parents are off to Turkey so it's just the girls & I for the first time. I'm a little nervous. This last week has been lovely & it's also had its challenges. Anna eats so much that it's hard for me to engage with Evelyn as much as I want to & Evelyn has small (tiny really) episodes of jealousy. I love seeing them together though so I hope that I can focus on the happiness & not stress too much. I'll let you know next week...

I'm hoping to find the time to write our thank you cards this week we're so grateful to the people who have taken the time to write us a card or send us a gift & I really want to be able to thank each of you properly. I know I'll get better at prioritising anything outside of the basics but I'm not quite there yet. Writing this, for instance, has been fit in to "movie time" which would potentially be the best time to cook/clean/shower. I'm learning, slowly.

Rosanna's 1 Week Update

On Saturday 20th June at 13:00 we welcomed our daughter Rosanna Erika (Anna) into the world & into our family. She weighed 3.5kg (7lb 13), has deep blue eyes & strawberry blonde hair. She also has a stork mark on her forehead that is the twin of the one I was born with. She's perfect.
