If there is ever a time to be over-sentimental and soppy, it’s around Christmas! Which also just happens to be my favourite time of the year – I feel like I’m always just so happy and excited the whole of December. And needless to say, this year is going to be a very special one for us, with our new little precious bundle of joy…


Who would of thought last time this year, I was to fall pregnant a month later, with my gorgeous baby boy, Rio Ezra Bush… I am so in love, it’s hard to even put words to it (I told you I would be sentimental!), and we’re just so incredibly excited to be celebrating our very first Christmas together. And even more excited about our three separate celebrations…

The first one as just the three of us here in London, on Christmas Eve and Christmas Day – then we’re heading down South to Sam’s family for a few days on Boxing Day. Lastly, we’re flying up to Norway to visit my family and will all be celebrating New Years Eve together! I am feeling so blessed for this Christmas coming, and I’m just counting down the days for the two weeks of family bliss and quality time together with Rio – for his very 1st Christmas.

Naturally there will be many presents for Rio from our nearest and dearest – many practical, which I am sure will be more satisfactory for us rather than him – but of course, lots of lovely bits for the main man too, such as more clothes (he’s growing so fast!) and some sensory toys and entertainment (as he’s just the most curious little boy).

For Christmas, we’ve already kitted him out with lots of lovely pieces from My 1st Years – the online go-to destination for personalised baby and children gifts, clothing and accessories; in other words – the ideal spot for parents and gift-givers this Christmas. There’s just so much adorable stuff on this site which will cover any of your needs (I mean – how cute aren’t these Personalised Blue Booties!?)

We’ve already got him a few pieces in the lead up to Christmas, as we’re shooting him for our 1st family Christmas card (eek, so exciting!), and have lots of lovely festive events to attend. I especially adore this Personalised 1st Christmas Bodysuit…

Not to mention this navy ‘Snow Cute’ Bodysuit – which will look so nice with some soft trackies, slippers and a snuggly cardigan (can you tell how excited I am to dress him up?!).

Naturally I had to get him the star of the show – the Personalised Red Santa Robe. I don’t think I have ever seen him this adorable, so soft and snuggly. Now I just a can’t wait to kick everything off this Christmas Eve, all huddled up in our comfy clothing, with the fire lit and our Christmas lights on. It’s that moment and this very special time as a little family unit, I have been dreaming of forever.
