This scrumptious nugget is 5 months old now! So crazy how fast time is passing. She's the happiest girl I know, and watching her learn each day is the most wonderful thing. This month she learnt to roll from her belly to her back, she can sit up with quite a few wobbles and flops, she tells great stories, stares at her hand and wiggles her fingers, she loves when my hair flops down by her face if I'm leaning over her, and she looooves watching her Daddy. Her smiles and giggles melt our hearts daily! 💕 Not so easy getting smiles from her when my face is hidden behind the big camera, but I need to take more "proper" photos of her. And get them printed! #florenceelizabethann #florencemacleod #5monthsold #frompushupstositups #bathtime #blueeyes #babygirl #theygrowupfast #love #smiles at Inverness

Not sure who wears the white vest best, John McClane or Florence? 😍 She's the most wonderful munchkin. Sometimes it's full on, but it's always worth it. 📷 - @mariolahartphotography #florenceelizabethann

😭 Thank you so much to @mariolahartphotography for our beautiful family photos! Can't wait to get them up on the wall 🤗 Mummas, it is SO important to get in photos! Even if you're not the weight you want to be, your hair's falling out and you've got bags under your eyes cause you haven't slept properly in months. These moments are so fleeting and precious and need to be captured! #myhairlookssogood #whydidicutit? #family #firstfamilyportraits #firstfamilyphotoshoot #getinthepicture #babygirl #preciousmoments #florenceelizabethann at Inverness

No surprise what my Best Nine of 2018 is filled with! What a year it's been; pregnancy, selling our flat, moving city, Matthew changing jobs, living with the in laws for 3 months, giving birth, buying a house, moving in the week before Christmas with a 7 week old baby...surely there won't be any more excitement between now and New Year's Eve... #whatawonderfulyear #bestgiftever #bestnine #bestyearever #florenceelizabethann #mercleodfamily #bumptobaby #theadventurecontinues at Inverness

🤗 The blog is almost three weeks behind, and I'll confess there have been quite a few days that I haven't taken a photo. I'm impressed I've managed to keep it going this long with everything that's been going on! I'll update it eventually, but for now we're busy getting settled in to our new home 🎉 Lots of boxes to unpack, and Christmas decorations to put up (they'll then stay up til February, cause I've never put a tree up this late in my life)! Thanks to @louisenicolson for snapping this photo of the three of us last weekend. It's been so lovely celebrating friends and family getting married this winter, can't wait for Lou Lou's turn next month! 💕 #mercleodfamily #florenceelizabethann #wedding #christmas #familyportrait #family #daughter #sixweeksold #secondweddingalready #babygirl #daughter at Muthu Newton Hotel

Day 331|365 - Yay! One month old today! Shortly after Mummy took this photo I had a poop explosion in my carseat, just as she was about to head out to the car to meet a friend for coffee! It took the path of least resistance and went all down my leg to my foot, thankfully contained by my sleepsuit! She thought she’d need to bath me, but I’m happy she didn’t, and just used up half a pack of wipes instead. . . . #florenceelizabethann #onemonthold #wherehasthetimegone #poopexplosion #actingallinnocent #pathofleastresistance #kaurmaeverywhere #teal #happygirl #babygirl #shesthebest at Inverness

Day 330|365 - Remember I said yesterday that Matthew and his Dad took a van through to Aberdeen to move our furniture out of the flat? Well, there was so much of it that they needed to go back again today, so this time Florence and I went too! Matthew drove us down in the car and dropped us off at Nana Jana’s, yay! Then he headed in to the flat to load up the final bits n bobs, and run around with the hoover. It was so nice spending the afternoon with Mum. I wasn’t the one doing the driving, but it felt very easy to just nip through to Mum’s for the afternoon, maybe we’ll do it more often! Until Florence no longer sleeps for an entire journey… . . . #florenceelizabethann #nanajana #spontaneoustriptoaberdeen #afternoonwithgranny #fourweeksold #aberdeen #granny #goodtobeback

Day 329|365 - She’s a Dog Whisperer as well as a Baby Whisperer! Haha. It was so good to finally introduce Florence to my Rachel today! We had a lovely Girls Day Out, while Matthew and his Dad headed through to Aberdeen with a van to move all our stuff out of the flat *Eek!* Then she came back up to the house for dinner, and Jasper was very excited to see her!! He snuggled right in when she sat down on the sofa with Florence, it was adorable! . . . #florenceelizabethann #dogwhisperer #babywhisperer #jaspermacleod #jaspertheminiaturepoodle #hegothishairchoppedoff #justintimeforwinter #oops #oldestfriend #babygirl #miniaturepoodle at Inverness

Day 328|365 - Oh my goodness, four weeks old?! How is that even possible? The past four weeks have been an emotional rollercoaster. Part of me is like “Woo! Four weeks have past! We’re surviving!” and another part of me is like “No! How is time moving so fast?! Stop growing!”. I’m very thankful to say that I think my hormones are balancing out a bit more now, and we’re getting in to the swing of things. Since starting the formula, Florence has been sleeping a four hour stretch and then a three hour stretch through the night, and that is absolutely wonderful! I feel so well rested, and don’t even nap during the day. I don’t think I’ll be giving that up even when we do eventually get the breastfeeding sorted out! . . . #florenceelizabethann #fourweeksold #babygirl #sleepygirl #suchacoolkid #babyknitwear #shedoesntsleepwiththedummyinallthetime at Inverness

Day 327|365 - I was in bed, and Matthew was about to climb in beside me, when I said I hadn’t taken a blog photo today…so off he went to get my camera and I snapped this photo of our little snuggle bug beside me.

Day 326|365 - Florence got to meet her Grand Auntie Anne tonight, yay! She had to fend off these two munchkins to get a cuddle with her; they’re so obsessed! Asking for a cuddle the minute we arrive at the house, and complaining if the other got a longer cuddle than they did. They couldn’t comprehend why Anne was allowed such a long cuddle, because she lives in Glasgow and only gets to see Florie for a short while this evening, and they’ll get to see her loads and get loads of cuddles another time. I love how much they love her already! . . . #florenceelizabethann #meetsauntieanne #cousins #grandaunt #snuggles #cuddles #fightingforcuddles #family #soloved at Inverness

Day 322|365 - It was so wonderful being able to take Florence to our old flat today. So emotional! Our first home, where she spent the first 7 months growing inside of me. It felt so good snuggling her on the sofa…while Matthew packed up all the stuff in the kitchen…I wasn’t feeling well, you see, because of the antibiotics, so poor Matthew had to do all the hard work himself.

Day 321|365 - Say what now? I’m three weeks old already?? (Almost 5 now, but shh) Florence went on her first adventure to Aberdeen today! She surprised our old Teens group at Bon Accord, got to sample Mr Li’s Chinese Takeaway (from my milk, of course), and got to stay at Nana Jana’s house. It was so lovely being back! #florenceelizabethann #threeweeksold #eyesbrowsonfleek

Day 316|365 - "I woke around 5am with a slight temperature and body aches, so I took some paracetamol and texted my Mum (who was in the room upstairs), because no matter what age you are, sometimes you just need your Mama. She came down, felt my forehead and didn’t think I was very hot. Ha. Florence had been gurning, but she’d settled again, thanks to her dummy. So I tried to get back to sleep. Florie woke again at half 7 for a feed. This was a little more unpleasant than usual, and that’s when the bottle of formula I’d been given by a friend for emergencies became very tempting!..."

Day 312|365 - Florence and I went to Mothercare today to get her a playmat, because she’s been so awake and alert the past couple days I figured she needed some stimulation…you can see she’s clearly loving it. . . . #florenceelizabethann #justlikeherdaddy #grumpyface #notimpressed #playmat #lovinglife at Inverness

Day 311|365 - "I attempted to take some newborn photos this morning, with the help of my sister. I thought I’d be an absolute pro at taking my own newborn photos, but turns out I was just a nervous mother! It didn’t help that the previous night we’d only slept 45 minute stints so I was exhausted and over thinking everything. I fed Florie for pretty much an hour…although, let’s face it, she was asleep for most of that probably, and she woke up the minute..." . . . #365project #newbornphotography #firstimemum #sleeplessnights #toes #babyrolls #looksjustlikeherdaddy #florenceelizabethann #chillin

Day 307|365 - One week old…what?! This first week has been an absolute dream. Florence is so content, we’ve had a pretty decent sleep each night, we’ve been out for a couple of hours every day except one, when we just stayed in and snuggled all day, Daddy has coped surprisingly well with the interrupted sleep through the night…but he hasn’t been back at work yet! We’ve had many visitors in to meet our adorable munchkin, and many getting in touch desperate to meet her. She is so well loved already!

Day 306|365 - Are you getting fed up of all the Florie spam yet? I was worrying I haven’t been taking enough photos of all her adorable little hands, feet, ears…everything! But going back through all these blog photos from the past two weeks, I’m happy to realise I have plenty of photos, haha! #florenceelizabethann

Boy oh boy, was yesterday a bad day. I said I would try to avoid giving my baby a dummy, but on Saturday night I gave in and gave one to her...best decision ever. This little lady just loves to suck, and I was letting her suck on me far more than my body could handle. I woke early on Sunday morning with a temperature and body aches, and the fear of latching Florie on, because of the damage to my nipples, got all too much and I decided to give her a bottle of formula at lunch time. By mid afternoon my temperature had raised to 39.2°C so we called nhs24 and got an appointment at Raigmore. Turns out I have an infection in my breast so I am now on antibiotics. A wonderful friend dropped off an electric pump last night and I was able to express some milk 🎉 She slept for 4 hours between feeds through the night and I feel better today than I have for the past week. I was saying some pretty horrible things about myself yesterday, worrying that I couldn't look after this precious gift that we've been given. It's a huge relief to not be feeling like that today. It's important to look after yourselves, so you can look after your little ones, Mamas! Don't feel bad if you need to use formula! . . . #newborn #babygirl #17daysold #mumblogger #theblogissobehind #inverness #raigmore #firsttimemum #mastitis #breastfeeding #expressingmilk #breastmilk #snuggles #florenceelizabethann

Day 303 - I don't even remember what happened today...oh! We had a snuggle day! So nothing happened and that was wonderful. We both just took turns snuggling our beautiful baby girl, breathing in her newborn goodness, and I took some photos of her adorable tiny hands and feet. Ugh.

Day 299|365 - "Where were we...midnight came and I was now attached to the epidural drip, enjoying occasional naps and just chatting away to our new midwife, who actually knew Matthew from church a number of years ago, so that was lovely! They examined me around 2:30am, and I was fully dilated and ready to push! This made me a little nervous...would I be able to push? Would I poop on the bed (Yes, I went there, sorry Mum)?

Matthew took this photo when we were left alone as a family for the first time and I completely forgot about it until this afternoon when I asked him to send it to me. It's my new favourite photo. A grainy phone snap. This was the most wonderful moment of our lives and I'm so thankful we snapped this photo to keep forever. I've got a week of blog posts to catch up on, hopefully I'll get to that tomorrow. I'm planning on doing a full birth story, for those interested. #family #macfamily #florenceelizabethann #familyselfie #firstfamilyselfie #raigmorehospital #birth #newborn #firstmoments #labourward #postlabourhigh #highonlife #highonlove at Raigmore Hospital
