We have spent the past couple of weekends up at our caravan in Argyll. The weather has been appalling, but it is so lovely to get out of the city and to get some good quality family time.

 I have finally been able to do a full yoga practice! I am taking full advantage of Molly's long mid morning nap and I managed full primary series this morning. I loved second. It has been about 6 months since i did any Ashtanga and i was surprised at what my body remembers. My Mula Bandha requires a wee bit of work after giving birth, I have to say! Hopefully it is just a matter of time before I get that, and the rest of my practice back. 

I still plan to return to work one night a week from September. I have mixed feelings about this... I am excited to return to my wonderful business and to see all of my friends but I will be sad to leave my beautiful little girl.  I am glad it is only one night a week and that my mum and Andy will be doing the baby minding. I couldn't imagine leaving her with a stranger and pity women that are forced to do this early on in their babies life so that they can return to work.

Fingers crossed the sunshine of today will continue this week so that I can really enjoy some decent walks in the West End with my baby!

Molly is now 4.5 weeks old and the weeks really have flown in.  Every day is different on this journey and I have good and bad ones ( depending on how Molly is feeling ). In the main, I am loving spending time with my wee baby and watching her change and grow. 

The relentless rain has been difficult as we have been cooped up n the house some days. On my more intrepid days, we have been getting out to baby and mummy yoga, and baby cinema and the Grosvener in the West end. Getting out is more challenging in this weather, but more important to ensure that I don't go stir crazy!

We are being even more adventurous this weekend and are heading off to our caravan in Argyll. I am excited to be getting out of the city and getting some quality family time. Andy is off on Monday as well, so I have help wit the wee bub for the entire 3 days - luxury!

I am going to get back into my Ashtanga this week and hope to do some very gentle practice. A friend of mine said that her milk supply dried up as she started doing a strong Ashtanga practice 3 weeks after the birth of her child, so I am going to tread carefully... I am so enjoying breast feeding and would hate to jeopardize this.

I have attached lots of pictures of wee Molly. My dad was up from Wales last weekend, which was a real treat.I have added a shot of him, the proud Grandparent!
