2012 was an odd year for me. I spent the first 9 months of it pregnant which I loved every minute of and wished now that I hadn't wished it away as I did, I miss the excitement of the planning it all and the unknowing what baby was going to be. But then on the other hand I have the most gorgeous baby girl to be thankful for. The birth may not have quite gone to plan, I didn't get to use my tankini I'd bought especially for the water birth I'd planned and I lost my car all in the same day but I still have my baby girl to cuddle and kiss when ever I like.
Its taken my quite a while to get over what actually happened on the way to the hospital. I think to start off with I thought it was all a dream and nothing really happened. I thought Adam was going to go over to collect the baby's bits out of it and say it was fine. I didn't look at the car as we left in the ambulance so it was a bit of a shock when he came back and showed me this photo.
I know it probably sounds crazy but all I could think about was my lovely car and how much I loved it, still do! I now look at it and realise how luck we all were. Adam walked away with a broken collar bone and I was just badly bruised. But most importantly baby was fine.
Eleanor is now 4 months old and we couldn't ask for a happier baby, she is perfect in every way. Having four children in the house took a bit of getting used to but we are coping quite well and it seems to be working.
So this year I would like a normal, boring year please! Maybe a few surprises along the way but all good things!
