Coming up for air

It’s been a while since my last post and I’m finally coming up for air after my birth. Ella – Reese is now 3 months old and perfectly delicious. It’s true what they say…. it’s like having your heart taken out and bundled up inside this little creature. It’s terrifying and wonderful all at once. I will post some pics of our little monkey soon. For now I just found a cool shoe site for pregnant women that I wish I knew about earlier. Then maybe I could have worn something other than flip flops for my entire pregnancy. For those of you whose are experiencing swelling feet or feel your high arches aching from carrying the extra weight.. these shoes might help.

My faves are the Sofia.

I remember the last time I wore heels. It was for a friends birthday party and I was about 3 months along. When I put on my fave black pumps they felt okay and it wasn’t until an hour or so later that I started to feel the discomfort. As a result I spent a lot of the night sitting down or doing a seriously dodgy version of tree pose to relieve one foot at a time. I had to take them off as soon as we left the bar and walk to the car barefoot like I did in my carefree teens. We couldn’t believe it when, on closer inspection, they looked like raw bratwurst sausages swollen: red and purple. Where did my delicate little size 6’s go. Never again.
