So – we’ve done it! We had our first hotel stay with baby Arthur and we survived! I say we survived but let’s be honest: we’re so lucky with Arthur that the whole experience was an absolute dream. Let’s get stuck right in…
For my birthday, I asked for only one thing – a night away as a family of three. I wanted to prove to myself that we could do it, as I so desperately wanted to make sure we went on holiday this year. I wanted to go somewhere close enough that if at 3am it all got too much we could just pack it in and come home. I also wanted to go somewhere I was familiar with, so it wouldn’t be stressful having to deal with parking or finding our way around. It then fell into place that the perfect town to visit would be Tunbridge Wells – I know it, I love it, and my sister had recommended a lovely hotel.
I can’t believe as I sit here writing this that my gorgeous little Arthur is 3 months old. Wow, time has gone quickly. It feels like just yesterday we were putting him in his car seat for the first time and taking him home from hospital. He’s definitely not my squishy little newborn anymore, so I thought I’d have a quick chat and update you all on his 3 month baby milestones.
