Mim Loves Blogs – Carry on Katy!

Mim Loves Blogs – Carry on Katy!

Well with the birth of Mini M, it’s been a little while since my last Mim Loves Blogs recommendation but that doesn’t mean I haven’t been reading blogs.  In fact, with the hours of day and nightly feeds, I’ve been reading more than ever!

So here is my recommendation for this week.

For the past 6 weeks since Mini M was born, life has been wonderful but, well, repetitive.  The nature of a newborn! I’m literally spending all of my days rotating through him breastfeeding, sleeping and pooping.  Being a baby is easy. The wonderful thing is that since 6 weeks post partum, Mini has now started to smile at me and sometimes he even giggles.  It’s the cutest thing!

It’s lovely to now feel like I’m getting something back from him although I really don’t know what he thinks it’s so funny!

I’ve been suffering from sleep deprivation and I’m pretty exhausted and was in need of a laugh myself so was over the moon when Katy at Carry on Katy posted last week.

This Week's #mamamimmention - Carry on Katy! www.mamamim.com

I just love Katy’s blog – it’s filled with variety humour, honesty and the funniest original illustrations.  Katy is a mum of two boys, Stan and Bob and a professional cello player.

Her recent post that had me chuckling was 17 Things that are as certain as Death and Taxes.  It’s the funniest list of 7 things that only a parent will understand are, as Katy says, inevitable events.

I love Katy’s style and her illustrations and I’m sure you already do too!  If you’re not already subscribed, check her out too on Twitter, Instagram, Google+ and Facebook.

I hope you’re all having a fabulous, or as Katy would say “fablas”, day!

    I love Katy’s blog too. She grew up near where I live and we met recently at Britmums, without me even realising who she was until a recent twitter encounter lol It’s a small bloggy world :D Thanks for linking up with #sundaystars x
