Carly Naughton  I am proud of many things in my life, but nothing more than my son. My life began when your little heart first beat underneath mine. @oakland.original

New blog post up. Just me feeling all pregnant and emotional I think!

We made it to about 23 months. Our breastfeeding journey has now ended, which is an incredibly sad and bittersweet moment for me. We fed through reflux, through several hospital stays and operations for me, we fed with only one working breast, my milk dried up after one operation and I spent a month relactating, pumping 15 minutes of every hour and then having to manage a baby who refused my breast, we fed while I underwent IVF and then 8 weeks into my next pregnancy. I've stopped now because it's too painful being pregnant. Stopping was just as hard as starting. Breastfeeding does not always come as naturally and easily for some women. It is bloody hard. I pushed us to persevere through some incredibly difficult and stressful situations to get us this far, and I'm glad I did. Breastfeeding was one of the most beautiful experiences I've had with motherhood. Already I miss gazing down at that little face, quietly suckling my nipple. I felt empowered that my body sustained my child. I did this photo shoot right before stopping so that I will forever have memories of our journey, including the ups and downs. Not every woman can breastfeed, and that's totally ok too! Do what is best for you and your baby. I can't wait to experience this all over again with our next baby #breastfeeding #normalizebreastfeeding #normalisebreastfeeding

That time Oakland partied hard in Vegas. Less than a month til our next family adventure. I'm really looking forward to taking Oakland to see villages in Vanuatu. I want nothing more than for him to grow up knowing that while we live one way, not everyone lives life the way we do. I want him to gain an appreciation for how people the world over live and to devour knowledge of other cultures.

Our little blobby πŸ’˜πŸ’˜πŸ’˜πŸ’˜

New written blog up on my Wordpress. I've been so slack and haven't written in so long! Link is in my Facebook 😊

Hi little bumpy! You're 7 weeks and 4 days, you're losing your little tail, have little limb stumps and are the size of a blueberry! You don't know it yet but you're so loved and wanted. You're making your mummy incredibly tired and sick and she can't stop eating like crazy. Keep growing little one πŸ’˜

Last night was family pizza night. We used tomatoes and basil from our own garden. I struggle with mess so this was a real test for me but Oakland loved it. Also, yes I really love tomato paste 😳

So many beautiful people made this a reality for us. This gorgeous arbor is available from @knotsoflove.x and a special thank you to @kellylanemua for donating her talents. I couldn't even bring myself to wash my face last night because the makeup was so amazing πŸ˜‚

The most perfect night of my life πŸ–€πŸ˜πŸ’

Poor Oak, he had his first big accident today, two days out from the 'wedding' of course. The doctor gave me sneaky butterfly stitches to put on him in ninja fashion once he fell asleep today. Despite losing a giant chunk of eyebrow he is happy as ever!

New vlog up! Watch this space for our scan Friday and also our wedding Saturday! Stressful doesn't even slightly sum up what our week is!

Poppin' and lockin' and it's not even 6 weeks in πŸ˜³πŸ˜³πŸ˜³πŸ‘ΆπŸΎ
