What does a six week old baby girl do?

  • she pulls her mumma's hair, catching it in her tiny fists and holding on with exceptional force
  • she smiles, if you're lucky
  • she vomits, if you're not
  • she grows out of her 0000 clothes but doesn't quite fit her 000 clothes
  • she screams in the car unless you talk to her the entire time
  • she feeds a lot (milky boob goodness)
  • she dreams of being held all day
  • she stares into her mum's eyes, her sweet mouth a little 'o' of hello 


 What does the mother of a six week old baby girl do?

  • she wears her hair in ponytails a lot
  • she smiles back so hard she feels like she might be having an aneurysm
  • she doesn't flinch – three kids in, a bit of baby vom won't phase her
  • she reluctantly folds the tiny clothes and packs them away, not yet ready to contemplate what to do with them in the long term
  • she talks to her baby in the car the entire time
  • she feeds a lot (chocolaty brownie goodness)
  • she dreams of not holding the baby for five minutes so she can go to the damn toilet
  • she stares into her daughter's eyes, kisses her sweet little 'o' mouth and says, "Hello to you, too, my precious girl. I love you more than you could ever know."


Hello friends


I’m Angie!  I mum. I write. I wife. My husband would say this is the correct order.  He’s so neeeedy. I live with my family in Melbourne, Australia, where I complain about the weather for 90% of the year – but I can’t imagine living anywhere else. Except maybe in Lake Como, waving to my neighbours George and Amal each morning.

    Oh, I love this Ang. It is the perfect blend of your love and truth (of motherhood).

    And at least there is a way to get her to stop screaming in the car…

    Adorable photos too.
