The past two weeks...

Friday, December 10, 2010

Hello my friends! Firstly, might I say an enormous thank-you to all of you who sent your kind words and gorgeous wishes regarding both the birth of our precious baby girl and my feature interview in the latest issue of Adore Magazine... it really means so much and has only added to the magic of the last two weeks!

I know, I have been super slack with my blog posts lately BUT I have THE BEST excuse in the world... how can anyone NOT want to give their undivided attention to something so sweet, innocent (for now anyway), and beautiful... these pictures of our darling Allegra Isobel Bouw say it all...

Allegra @ 12 days old...

Would you look at those lips! Allegra @ 13 days old.

I know I am yet to share the story of her birth as well as the details of her nursery but I do promise I WILL do this next week! But for now I thought I would share a few snaps from the last couple of weeks... it has been filled with many 'first times' for us as a family!

Mumma & Dadda Bouw on our first
lunch date with little miss Allegra!

Taking Allegra to see the Christmas displays...
the fact that she slept through the whole thing
didn't dampen our spirits in the slightest :)


Cuddle time!

AND today marks another special occasion... 5 years ago today Mr B and I 'officially' began dating :) I wish I could say we will be celebrating a romantic evening just the two of us but instead we will be spending it with 700 others at his work's annual Chrissy do! It is a masquerade theme and I have had literally had no time to shop for a new frock so will have to wear something I already own... however I unexpectedly managed to pick up a new mask on my way to making a very quick and unexciting trip to the chemist!

I am thinking of teaming up the mask with this dress, these shoes and accessories I already own... what do you think?!

I'll let you know what I decide on. Have a beautiful weekend and I'll see you back here very soon!

P.S Did I mention this will be the first time I will be rocking a frock since giving birth 14 days ago... eeek!

P.P.S It's not all that bad... the post-pregnancy gods must seriously love me because I have lost almost 9kgs in 2 weeks!!!
