Yesterday we had a huge (by my standards!) party for Finley. When we had found out about his heart defect we said that once he’d had his op and was all good we’d throw a big celebration and that is what we did! More on that in a mo…

As I was saying, yesterday we had a big party for Finley round at my parents house. It was wonderful as so much of the family were yet to meet him. The house was packed and all the different children of my sister, cousins, friends etc and all played so well together. So great to have most of my favourite people together under one roof to celebrate our brave boy! He’s also been just a pleasure these past couple of days. After having a rough day on Monday, something seemed to click and we’ve just been having a great time! He’s been feeding so much better and smiling loads! Also…

Awh I love that photo so much!! You look gorgeous Laura, glowing and happy and so cute having matching shirts :) :) Such a good idea to have a party after Fin’s op and for all the family to meet him :)
Must try some of the Eat Evolve stuff, it sounds so good!
Loving the tartan- he looks so cute! The Dr Bronners almond soap is amazing, it just smells so good!
Yay to the party bet it was lovely to celebrate your little boy and I bet everyone was lining up for cuddles! X
Looks like a lovely party! glad you’ve had a good week with Finley :-) Two more weeks till we are on summer holiday here – counting down the days at school! … I need to try that pancake idea of yours – I have been trying to dial it up with my eating and exercising over the last week – no results quite yet (i fact the scales seemed to go the opposite way this week!) but I’ll keep at it! lucky I have you for inspiration ;-)
you look so adorable in your matching shirts Laura! so glad to hear Finley is feeling extra happy and you were able to celebrate his op success in style!
Love that outfit int he second pic! The boot/sock combo looks fab! Glad that things are going smoothly as well, what a relief after all the mayhem. And the photo of Finley and you matching looks very sweet.

That soap sounds good- I think I may have to look it up!
Lovely pics of you and the baby! Saw that watercress salad on Twitter and hope to make it in the future at some point. It looks delicious!
