Phoebe’s first Christmas was pretty chaotic, busy but still lovely. It felt like a rushed time, I was a new mum trying to get to grips with everything. But we did. We managed to decorate the house nicely and for it to feel Christmassy. It felt a bit odd not being at work and not surrounded by the usual festivities you get in an office.
At only three months we didn’t get her many presents but we had a really nice day, with Nanny and Grandad and Uncle Glen coming over for an hour in the morning.
It was the first Christmas in our new house so it was a pretty big adjustment to our family. It was all new but it was about creating new traditions and new memories. Here’s some of our wonderful highlights.
