We welcomed our little girl into the world on 21st April 2016, at 4:46am. We named her Daisy Nelle.
She’s everything we ever hoped for and more. But things haven’t turned out quite how we expected them to.
Despite having extra scans, we didn’t realise that Daisy did in fact have the syndrome I was born with – Marshall Stickler Syndrome. She was also born with a cleft palate, which has meant her first week of life has been a struggle. She’s been in the Special Care Baby Unit for the past few days, and we’ve endured a lot as a family.
But she’s a fighter. And she will be okay. And hopefully we’ll all be home together one day soon. These are my memories from the first week. There aren’t enough clips of happy family, or my big boy, holding my little girl. But these will come in time I hope.
I just wanted to say a massive thank you to everyone who has reached out to our family over the past few days. It’s made a really difficult and heartbreaking time a little easier to bear. And we can’t thank you enough.
If you have a little spare luck. Please send some to Daisy. We’re desperate to bring her home. xx
I’m Charlotte and I am one of those mums just trying to make it all work, if you know what I mean.
I’m 27, love carbs, rubbish 90’s music, Prosecco and baths without finding a bath toy stuck under my bum.
I have a little boy called Bill (born June 2012) and I am pregnant with baby number two who is due in April 2016.
I work full-time (which is bloomin’ tiring sometimes). And I also blog and make these videos for fun, because I’m daft like that.
I’m a Channel Mum Pro Vlogger – which is really worth checking out! https://www.youtube.com/user/channelmum
I was a single mum, just me and Bill. But then I had a bit of a fairytale moment when I met Mark (he’s a bit lovely) and things are better than I could have hoped for now. Especially now we’re having a little baby of our own.
I know that all mums are different in their own way, but I hope you enjoy seeing snippets of my life, all the same.
