When I Am A Mother I Will Never…

Never say never right? I found myself being really amused today thinking about the various things that I said that I would never do when I had a baby. Some were years ago, some were when I was pregnant, and some were even in the early days of Billy's newborn life. I think I would actually [...]

Six Months Of Motherhood

Billy is 6 months as of the 9th December. That means it's my 6 month anniversary with Motherhood. In some ways it feels like I've always been a mother and in other ways it seems like just yesterday that he was placed on my chest and I uttered my first words to my son, "oh [...]

Competition Time | Shall We Have Breakfast?

I'm not a morning person... said no mother ever! It's generally not a choice to be honest. When you have a baby, you most certainly ARE a morning person. You have to be. Oh, and babies do not know what a weekend is, just to be clear. I remember I used to say the phrase, "I will [...]

A Day In The Life

I was inspired by a post over at the lovely Love Little Poppins Blog today. She did a lovely post which described a day in the life of her little family. She too has a beautiful little baby, so I found it really interesting cross referencing our little routines. Maybe this is of no interest [...]

Travelling With A Baby – Part 2!

Thank you to those of you who read my last post about taking a baby on a holiday. I felt the need to write a second post on the subject because I didn't really get to elaborate too much on the actual travelling element of it, which I think is the reason why a lot [...]

Getting Out Of The House!

One of the best parts of my pregnancy was how active I was during it. I was blessed in that right throughout I felt really good and I didn't suffer with many aches and pains. I had the usual "morning sickness" but even at that it was always in the evenings when I got in [...]

Newborn No More

By | September 10th, 2014|Baby, breastfeeding, family, motherhood, Parenting, pregnancy, Travel|12 Comments

It's safe to say that our little squishy newborn is now a sturdy little baby boy. He's doing so many new things like lifting his head, trying to sit up, smiling and giggling all the time, and he's awake for longer periods of time which is great because we get to enjoy all of the [...]

Things have been a bit quiet on the blog front lately. I feel like I've been doing a whole lot of nothing and yet I've been so busy. I've been home quite a lot but I never actually find a moment to sit down with the laptop. I can type away on my phone while [...]

Two Months Old – Where is my newborn?

By | August 11th, 2014|Baby, breastfeeding, co sleeping, development, newborn, Parenting, vaccinations|0 Comments

Even writing those words feels surreal, I cannot believe my squishy newborn is now a two month old baby. Using the word "old" to describe his age seems hilarious as he's only been on this planet for a mere 63 days. But my oh my what an affect he has had on the world in [...]

The Storm Before The Calm

By | August 3rd, 2014|breastfeeding, motherhood, newborn, nursing, Parenting, pregnancy|1 Comment

No I didn't mix up the saying. I wanted to write about the first six weeks of being a mother who is breastfeeding. The storm before the calm. A lot of people had advised me that the first six weeks would be the hardest and this is something that I have found to be very [...]
