A – Anxiety
Not the most positive start to this challenge! Before I was a mum I had never really experienced anxiety but now I suffer with separation anxiety, probably worse than Jasper.
B – Breastfeeding
I have been lucky enough to still be exclusively breastfeeding Jasper (alongside solid food now) which I feel really grateful for.
C – Classes
I know these aren’t for everyone but I love going to baby classes. Me and Jasper currently go to Tiny Talk, Singing Class and All Kinds Of Play each week.
D – Drumming
Jasper drums on anything, anywhere, all the time.
E – Enthusiastic
Since becoming a mum, I have definitely learnt to be enthusiastic about everything. I do find it funny though when I forget I am talking to an adult, and not Jasper, and say something like “Look, a boat” really enthusiastically.
F – Funny
As Jasper gets older, he’s developing such a silly personality which is so funny.
G – GP
I have been to the GP’s more times since becoming a mum than I did before.
H – Happy
Every time I look at Jasper’s little face or watch him playing my heart just fills with so much happiness, I didn’t know was possible.
I – Instinct
Since becoming a mum, I have realised that mother’s instinct is definitely a thing.
J – Jasper
My baby boy. Me and James loved this name before I was pregnant and as soon as we found out we were having a boy we knew he would be Jasper.
K – Kisses
Jasper has just learnt to give and blow kisses. He gives the biggest and wettest kisses ever but I love it.
L – Life Changing
I didn’t realise how much my life and priorities would change when I became a mum. Even when I was pregnant I didn’t know but now that he is here my outlook on everything really has changed so much.
M – Mummy
I absolutely love being Jasper’s mummy and I can’t wait to hear him call me this.
N – Nappy Changes
Jasper has just realised he can roll away from me mid nappy change so that has made them even more difficult, but his bare bum is really cute.
O – ‘Oh Dear’
This was one of the first books Jasper got and we have read it so many times.
P – Proud
Jasper only has to do the smallest thing and I feel so proud. When he was a newborn I was so impressed every time he did a burp!
Q – Quiet
The only thing that keeps Jasper quiet is chasing his ball around.
R – Routine
I have always liked having a routine but I think since becoming a mum I have learnt to relax my routine a bit and really try to follow Jasper’s cues a bit more.
S – Sleep
Or more accurately lack of sleep. I’ve not slept for more than a couple of hours in row for months.
T – Teething
Jasper is 10 months old now and has only just got his first tooth so it has felt like he has been teething forever.
U – Unconditional Love
I just love my baby so much.
V – Vacuum
This is something I really struggle to get done these days, firstly because I have no time and secondly because Jasper is really scared of the hoover every time it comes out.
W – Weaning
I am well underway with trying to wean Jasper now, I love when he tries a new food and really likes it. Recently he has been loving mushrooms and houmous.
X – Xylophone
Me and James bought Jasper one for Christmas but so far I think James might have enjoyed it more.
Y – Yoghurt
Jasper’s favourite food.
Z – ZZZZZZ
The constant battle between wanting to stay up and blog and needing to catch some of these.
I would like to nominate Hannah over at https://theswirlesclan.home.blog/.
Thanks for reading, Jen x
