Meet Mimi…

Lovely readers, I am so excited to introduce you to our precious little girl, Mimi Ada Copeland, born on 19th January.

Mimi’s birth feels like a magical blur that happened so long ago. In fact, it feels as though we have known her forever. But the reality is she arrived just three short weeks ago, and she was in quite a hurry, too. After just a few hours in the hospital out she came and our five year wait to meet her was over. I’ll never forget the moment I saw her beautiful little face for the first time and I haven’t stopped staring at it in wonder since.

The newborn bubble has been wonderful, terrifying and exhausting all at the same time – nothing quite prepares you for the realisation that you are responsible for keeping this tiny little baby happy and healthy. Mimi feeds non-stop and doesn’t sleep during the day so achieving anything at the moment is near impossible but I’m just going with it (this is the very first time she has settled herself to sleep during the day so I’ve grabbed a few minutes to write this). I’ve very quickly learnt that I need to place my phone, water bottle, snacks, TV remote on the correct side of me according to which boob she is on – this is an important lesson!

For now, I will be taking a short break from the blog and popping in as and when I can. We’ve waited a long time for this beautiful babe so I intend to make the most of this time as everyone keeps telling me it goes so fast; I already miss her being teeny tiny!

Thank you so much to everyone who has messaged me, left gorgeous comments on my Instagram or Facebook posts. I can not get over how kind and generous everyone has been. It is so amazing to be able to share the happiness we feel with you.

Katy and Mimi xxx

    Oh my goodness, what a gorgeous little thing! I’m glad you seem to be taking it all in your stride and taking the time to enjoy it all. Your blog readers will still be here waiting to hear from you whenever you can post so take your time. It does go so very fast! I’m so happy for you and your little family!

    So happy for you! You definitely need all the necessary items in arms length before starting to feed. You will quickly learn how to carry around baby without losing the latch and doing everything with one hand. Enjoy these early days. Xoxo

    Oh so happy for you and your little family… Congratulations, and enjoy this very special time

    Congratulations, she’s beautiful! My middle daughter is called Mimi – it’s short for Imogen. Her big sister was only 17 months old when she was born and ‘Imogen’ was a bit of a mouthful for her. It came out as ‘Mimi’ and it stuck!
    Soak up those wonderful, terrifying, exhausting, snuggly newborn days while you can. Already looking forward to more gorgeous photos soon 🙂

I went through a similar journey and the feeling of euphoria when you finally meet the children you’ve been waiting and longing for is indescribable. Delighted for you lovely. Welcome to the world little Mimi xxxxx
