2014- A New Year

So, another year has been and gone. 

Last year was the best year ever of my life, my life has totally been flipped upside down and I love it. I love being a mummy to my boy, Alfie. He is fantastic, adorable and cheeky. He keeps me going, even when I'm feeling not up to showing my face to the outside world he gives me that extra push to go out and I feel much better for it. He has helped me build my confidence, even though he can't talk to me and tell me to get a grip. I do it for him. He is the most important thing in my life, and everything I do- I do it for him. 

At the beginning of 2013, Alfie was a 24week old baby curled up in my tummy. And then April came round and it was time for Alfie to meet us. He was 10days late but it made it more special when he was eventually ready to come into the world. I remember cuddling my boy for hours and just staring at him all night. I didn't sleep, I couldn't. I just wanted to stay awake and keep him safe. 

In September we went for our first family holiday- Alfie was4months but it was lovely to get away from Lincoln and it did our little family the world of good. Just being together. 

In July, I started my little blog 'emmaandalfiesworld' -it is the best thing I've ever done. I've met loads of lovely people and everyone is so supportive. I have friends with newborns and friends with older babies than Alfie and the community is very strong- we all go to each other for help and advice. That's what I love about blogging- you have a group of people that are there to chat too day and night- especially us parent bloggers! 

My aim for 2014 is too make my blog bigger and better. I appreciate all the followers I have& I can't wait to see what 2014 holds for us all.
