We asked Perth-born Michelle from A Minute Away From Snowing to share stories of her first five months of motherhood, and tell us which pieces she can't live without from our new SS16 Collection, inspired by WA.
It’s been five whole months of this little baby bear. Those first foggy months are behind us, as we navigate the ups and downs of now, but reveling in the way he still fits neatly into my lap and the way his eyes smile so sweetly from his cheeks.
My initiation into new motherhood is almost complete: I’ve come to accept that I’ll be forever tired, but that it’ll be forever worth it.
Over the past few months, I’ve gotten to know Finn so much better. What he likes, what he dislikes, what makes him smile so wide that his eyes disappear for a moment. I know that he loves to fall asleep to the sound of leaves falling to the ground as we go on our daily walk. Letting him take in the beauty of the natural Australian landscape is such an important part of our every day.
Both Finn and I were born and bred in Perth so, naturally, I was drawn to the incredibly sweet hand-painted and illustrated pieces of the new Baby Collection.
Both Finn and I were born and bred in Perth so, naturally, I was drawn to the incredibly sweet hand-painted and illustrated pieces of the new Baby Collection. Inspired by the sun and the sea of Western Australia (I count my blessings every day that we call this beautiful place home!) I love how the collection celebrates the ‘Australian moment’.
Our own every day moments are filled with playtime on the whisper soft Kayson baby quilt (Finn also loves the adorable knitted dice set!), getting fresh air with an afternoon walk (with Finn snug in these gorgeous printed wraps), bath time as evening falls with the beautiful hooded bath towel, and a good nap in between, in the luxurious Andee sleep suit.
The whimsical prints found on these pieces are unique to Sheridan and feature hand painted native Australian flora and fauna; as an ode and respect to this incredible place we call home. This appreciation of home and our natural surroundings is something that, as a mother, I hope to instill in Finn as he grows up.
As a mother, comfort and safety is also my number one priority. With Sheridan being the first official bed linen partner of SIDS and Kids, it gives me peace of mind that Sheridan’s Baby Collection ticks all the boxes for a safe sleep (and also in style for this little koala bear!).
The Sheridan Kids and Baby Collection is now available in their 35 David Jones Kids and Baby concepts Australia wide.
