Graysons’ first smile

graysonblog1

Baby G smiled!!ย Finally! It’s no secret that we needed that smile more than our next breaths, so much so we couldn’t contain our excitement when it spilled across his chubby little face in Harrods.

We both craned over his pram sucked that smile in as if it was the final pay off for all that red faced screaming, poo, baby sick and sleep deprivation we’ve suffered for what seams like forever.

It was a moment that I was desperate to capture on camera, but knew the probability of that was slimmer than Victoria Beckhams thighs, but luck had it that I had the camera already in my hand so when our little squeaky cracked out that perfect gummy grin for the first time I was ready for it!

Oh my goodness, I know everyone says this, but it really does melt your heart and make your love for your little person completely consume you.

I don’t mean to sound overly sentimental, but I honestly think that the greatest gift that one human being can give to another, is unconditional love. It’s the thing that unifies us with those very few people.
Thats why seeing that smile, that little insignificant expression carried in that fleeting moment in Harrods on that rainy Friday afternoon will resonate with me forever.

Anyway, gush over, enjoy the vlog! x

  1. Hannah: I think that you are wonderful. You’re not afraid to show just how tiring it is, how wonderful it is and how utterly happy you all are. You’re inspirational x x x

  2. Grayson is so gorgeous! Thank you for all your updates throughout pregnancy and now as a new mum! I am currently 24 weeks pregnant for the first time and watching your videos has definitely helped me so far! I was wondering if you could write a blog about what your essentials have been since having baby Grayson? Just starting to buy things and would love to have some proper advice on what’s been useful and what’s not! Bella ๐Ÿ™‚ xx

  3. Haha, your Grayson voice at the beginning is hilarious. Love how he’s come out as an American – where did that come from?!

    I hope your test went well, fingers crossed you passed with flying colours. And if not, don’t worry, they say the best drivers pass second time round (well that’s what I was told when I failed first time round!).

  8. Hello! I just watched your baby spa video! New subscriber and follower ๐Ÿ™‚

    Baby G is adorable and he looked so content in the spa! I can only imagine how difficult being a new mother would be for you, but hang in there it’ll all get better. It’s moments like these, like you said, which make all the hard work worthwhile

  9. Absolutely in love with your vlogs, you’re such a kind loving mum! I’ve heard that babies find it hilarious when you tear paper, I don’t know if Grayson is old enough yet but you might want to try that our ๐Ÿ™‚

  10. Hey Hannah!
    Congrats! You guys have one precious baby boy ๐Ÿ™‚
    i’ve 2 questions for you. do you have anyadvice on starting a youtube channel? (i’d really like to,but i am a little scared)
    and i love your outfit in the first baby boy haul video, would you tell me where can i find them?
    sorry about the creepiness :S

  11. Never stop vlogging! It’s currently getting me through the ups and downs of pregnancy and is enjoyable to watch and have some insight into motherhood.

  12. Hello Hannah!

    Just wanted to tell you how wonderful it has been to watch your “bump to baby” progression on your blog. I’m due at the end of April, and have been following you religiously to try to find out what I should be expecting…thanks so much ๐Ÿ™‚

    If you have time, I would love to hear which products/baby gear you’ve found the most and least helpful in your first months with Baby G…we’re frantically trying to gather everything we need but really hard to know what to choose! (what did you think of your manual breast pump? which swing/bouncy chair has worked best for you? etc. etc.)

    Again, thanks for the time you put into making these videos! Its a huge help to the rest of us out here!

    xo,
    Brittany

  17. May I simply say what a comfort to uncover somebody that truly knows what they’re discussing online.
    You actually understand how to bring a problem to light and make
    it important. More people really need to read this and
    understand this side of your story. I can’t believe you’re not more
    popular because you surely possess the gift.

  22. With havin so much content and articles do you ever run into any
    issues of plagorism or copyright infringement? My site has a lot of unique content I’ve either
    authored myself or outsourced but it appears a lot of it is popping it
    up all over the web without my authorization. Do you know
    any ways to help stop content from being stolen? I’d truly appreciate it.

  24. You actually make it appear really easy together with your presentation but
    I find this matter to be really something that I believe I might never
    understand. It kind of feels too complex and extremely huge for me.

    I am having a look ahead on your subsequent
    publish, I’ll attempt to get the hang of it!

  26. Its such as you learn my mind! You appear to know
    so much about this, like you wrote the ebook in it or something.
    I think that you simply could do with a few p.c.
    to power the message home a little bit, however other than that, that is magnificent blog.
    A great read. I’ll certainly be back.

    my iphone and tested to see if it can survive a forty foot drop, just so
    she can be a youtube sensation. My iPad is now destroyed and she has 83 views.
