Darcey is now three months old and I cannot believe how quickly that time has gone! Thought that I would update you all as to how we are getting on so I'm afraid that this isn't book related. I have thought about writing this post for a while, I am always completely honest in my reviews so I am going to be completely honest in this post too. I have found being a new mum really hard. I hoped that I would be a natural but I have to admit that things haven't come that easily. I can now hold my hands up and admit that I have had full-blown post natal depression, the past month and a half have been extremely difficult and without the support of Dr S and my family, I don't know how I would have coped.
I really wish that people would talk about these things more as it is so, so easy to feel that you are the only one that is experiencing it. I am definitely coming out of the other side now and I love being a mum to Darcey and seeing how much she changes every single day; she has her moments but on the whole she seems very happy and content and we get lots of smiles now which is just lovely!
Once again though, reading and blogging have helped me through a really difficult time, being able to escape into a book, if only for 20 minutes or so has done me the world of good. As you can see from the picture of Darcey in her chair, we have started her early with the books, she loves looking at them and I can't wait to be able to read her a story, the tough part will be deciding what to read to her first!
