Oddments – The Royal Baby Edition

I meant to post this yesterday but ended up glued to Sky News waiting to hear about the baby. I loved some of the interviews that took place as they tried to fill time because nothing was happening yet –

“You’re a first time father…what advice would you give to Prince William?”

“Er, I don’t know really”

“What do you think they should call the baby?”

“Er, I don’t know”

Gripping stuff. When the announcement came, I’ll admit, I shed a tear or two and then again when they brought him out (also, I’d really appreciate it if they chose a name soon so I can get on with my life). I always cry at One Born Every Minute too, there’s just something so special about a new baby. It made me think back to those first few days with my own babies and that absolute euphoria at meeting them. I’ll never forget it.

Sarah from A Party of Seven shared her youngest daughter’s birth story (along with some lovely photos, of course). Sarah also takes some beautiful photographs of newborns.

Charlotte from Write Like No One’s Watching shared the story of her little prince’s arrival. It’s very real and honest, which I love her for. I love that she wrote from the heart and didn’t sugarcoat the horrible bits.

Kirsty from My Two Mums wrote about her son’s birth from the other parent’s point of view. Such a loved little boy, right from the start.

I love photos of brand new babies and these ones from My Model Mummy are so sweet. Really precious moments.

Some favourite photos of ours from the past week. We’ve spent most of our time in the garden, I love it!


  • Charlotte - write like no one's watching - Oh I loved this! And how stunning are your children. Just beautiful. I can’t wait to have baby number two. It’s becoming quite the obsession of mine now. Being a mother is undoubtedly the best thing I have ever done. xxReplyCancel

    • Hayley - Thank you, obviously I think they’re pretty gorge! You should absolutely have another, you’ll love it. I LOVE having two, it’s so lovely seeing them together. It’s a bit addictive though – I wouldn’t mind a few more (husband will freak!)ReplyCancel

  • Mary Louise - Thankyou for adding our post! And your babies are gorgeous!!
