Georgie turned 9 months old last week and, as with Beau (and all the other #9monthsin #9monthsout tags on social media!), we took some 9 month photos to celebrate the milestone. Continue reading
Yesterday Beau’s preschool teachers checked to see if I was getting their emails, because I’d been asked to send Beau to preschool in his gumboots but he had arrived in trainers. Continue reading
When I first started blogging (pregnant with my first baby), I had no real plan or intention… some days I still don’t think I do… I want this blog to be authentic and in the moment, a snapshot of where we are at in life. Continue reading
Beau started preschool at the beginning of Autumn. It’s just a couple of weeks now until the winter-time, so it’s taken me some time to find the words to express how I feel about it.
To be honest, though – I still haven’t found the best words. It has been such a wonderful journey so far – a natural and easy transition for him, and for us – but oh my goodness my emotions. I’ve been all over the place and back again. Continue reading
Someday I will look back on these videos and laugh, affectionately, at my novice videography skills. I’ll be grateful I made them, though… because it was a start. And we’ve all got to start somewhere.
I’m not sure how frequently I will make videos of A Day in the Life – but this is the first. Just a typical Monday with a baby and a preschooler. I did manage to put my feet up for a few minutes in the afternoon… if you look closely, you might just see it!
Shot on my iPhone (although you can probably tell that).
For you, my darlings.
Our little Georgie girl is now 7 months old… which means her “6 month update” is actually a month late. But I’d rather post her 6 month update a month late, than post her ‘7 month update,’ because I have a thing for even numbers and it just sounds really awkward. (This might help you to get to know me a little better… I’m really quite particular, but also a bit of a kook). Continue reading
Usually we go away for Easter, taking full advantage of a long weekend to get away and enjoy the last blast of summer. But this year we have opted to stay home, due to friends’ birthdays, weddings, baby showers, and to have fun ‘egg hunting’ with cuzzies. Continue reading
These busy days of early motherhood really are a whirlwind. Intense, full on, consuming… some days it feels as though you are knocked from pillar to post and can’t find your feet, other days you are so exhausted you feel like a dead weight and can’t think in a straight line, let alone move. Continue reading
As the rain gently falls on my office window, I can hear the sounds of ‘bath-time’ coming from upstairs, and I appreciate this half hour I have to myself.
We’re going camping in just under two weeks time – so I’m going to make a start on our packing list, and am hoping that the sunshine we’ve been enjoying makes a return for when it’s time to go! Continue reading
I remember waking sometime after midnight, with a sense that something was shifting. I was almost 42 weeks pregnant, so the inevitable had obviously been in my consciousness for some time – but the strange thing about birth is that, even when it could begin at any moment, it always feels so far away. Unimaginable.
So I just lay in bed and waited, with Nick sleeping soundly next to me, and I thought to myself – ‘I’ll just see if that happens again.’ Continue reading
