(Ordinary Moments 15) *No 12* The Lasts

The Lasts 

Over the last few weeks due to us moving house (yes it’s finally happened-eek 🏡) I’ve been feeling a bit emotional.
I’ve been thinking of everything we have experienced in our flat of 9 years and getting extremely nostalgic!! 

I mean our flat was where we first moved in together, where we came home to after getting engaged and married,
where we discovered I was pregnant, it’s been Little Bs first home and ours together
and for that it will always have a special place in my heart!

This house though will be our first real family home! One with space for Us to grow (in size and strength),
to experience and enjoy and make our own!

This week though I have experienced so many lasts…… the last dinner, visit, shower/bath (we had damn nice bathrooms courtesy of B), the last drive home from work to that address, so many lasts and that put my mind onto how many lasts we experience day to day,especially as a mum……quite a lot of the time without even realising!

I thought about how many lasts i’d already experienced with Little B and he’s not even 2.5yrs.

  • The last time he had a bottle
  • The last time he slept in a cot
  • The last time he fitted into any clothes smaller than 2-3. (There’s some really cute baby grows I really miss)


I got scared of all the other lasts to come and then the thought hit me, that with every last, there’s a first and there are so many more of them to come.

  • His first day at preschool
  • His first friend (you know the one they choose themselves)
  • His first sport/activity he loves

And as he gets even older

  • His first kiss
  • His first drive or holiday alone
  • His first day at uni

Yikes!! The excitement, the nerves, the emotion. 

If B read this now, he would undoubtedly call me a nutter while grinning his head off at me.
But I know deep down he secretly thinks the same.
When I told him I’d put Little Bs name down on the waiting list for a preschool his words were……

What already?! I’m not sure I’m ready for him to go out in the big wide world alone yet!

Love it!!

(Apologies for the strange layout at times-we haven’t got internet sorted at the new house yet and apparently it could take a few weeks, so this is all written on my phone where there are limited functions on my app)
All sorted and adapted now Thank Goodness!

    Ah congratulations lovely on your new home. I hope you have lots of happy times and years there. I get very sentimental about things, so sentimental in fact. I know that I will be so sad to leave this home when the time eventually comes- it holds SO many memories for us. x

      Thank you!! It’s been so as to leave the flat but I really can see potential in this house and it’s all very exciting! I’m hugely sentimental and emotional even more so since having Little B. You use the word bittersweet and I completely feel this! I always think about the sad things I’m leaving but keep reminding myself of all the good to come xx
