Introducing George Alexander Thompson...

As promised in my New Year's Resolutions post, I would like to properly introduce my Son, George, onto my blog in the hope that I can start including some more lifestyle posts, as the main part of my life at the moment is staying at home and looking after him.  The majority of my posts will still be predominantly beauty-based, but I'd like to have the option of including any other exciting bits too!

George's Story
On 16th September 2012, at 02:29am, after a whopping 26hours of labour, my husband and I welcomed a beautiful baby boy into the world, just 3 days early.  We didn't know whether he was going to be blue or pink at the time as we wanted the surprise, but had already chosen names for both sexes - so George Alexander he became (yes, yes, the same first names as our new Prince and future King, and we got there first - how cool!!).  I actually had 2 radio interviews about the fact we had a child with the same names, and me being a Kate too! #claimtofame hehe!

The first couple of weeks of George's life are a bit of a blur to be honest.  I was so completely zombiefied by the lack of sleep during the labour and the first couple of nights in the hospital, that by the time we got him home I was struggling to function.  George was a little tinker the first few days at home and refused to breastfeed - resulting in an even more stressed Mammy.  I just remember feeling so guilty that I had to put him on the bottle - not because there's anything wrong with it - just that I had my heart set on breastfeeding and felt a bit of a failure.  But once I seen that he was happy and content that he was finally feeding properly and gaining weight, all those feelings of guilt vanished, and I felt 100% more relaxed and could begin to enjoy my baby!  Martin (my husband) was at home with me for the first 3 weeks and I honestly don't know what I would have done without him!  I have so much admiration for single mother's who do it alone because I was a tired, emotional mess!  I soon settled into Motherhood and I wouldn't change it for the world.  Becoming a Mother is without a doubt the best thing I have ever done.  Cliché I know, but I cannot imagine life without him now.  He is now walking, babbling, and is the happiest, funniest, most loveable little character I have ever known - to me he is perfect and I feel so lucky to call him my Son.

George just the other day- aged 15months

I made my first ever YouTube video a few weeks ago - just a cheeky little montage dedicated to George's first year, in the hope that one day I will pluck up the courage to start making videos relating to my blog.  Don't forget to hit the thumb's up button if you like it :)

Hope you're all well and hope this Mumsy post didn't bore you all too much, lol.
