13 Months – A Tough Little Phase

By | July 14th, 2015|Parenting|3 Comments

We're going through a very weird stage at the moment. This post was supposed to be purely about the massive event that has been me returning to work after 13 months of maternity leave, but I can't in good conscience not mention the realities of this stage of parenting. I don't even know how to explain [...]

RECIPE l Sweet Potato And Coconut Soup

By | July 12th, 2015|Parenting, Recipe, recipes|0 Comments

You know when you just get something in to your head and there's no telling you? Well I've been flirting with this soup idea for a while now. It's not even particularly creative, but I wanted to recreate a certain type of soup that I totally obsess over when I come across it in a [...]

How To Have A First Birthday Party

I've been trying to write this post for weeks now. I wanted it to be a good post, lots of photos, and a nice tribute to the all important first birthday party of my beautiful son. I was nearly losing sleep over it. I didn't want to forget any of the things that I had [...]

A Year Of This

By | June 2nd, 2015|birth, breastfeeding, Parenting|5 Comments

Exactly a week from today is the 9th June 2015. My 7 pound 12oz little baby boy will be a one year old. I want next week to be about him and the celebration, and so I thought this would be a good time to have my own little "moment". It feels huge. I call it "this" [...]

Our A&E Experience

By | May 25th, 2015|Parenting|6 Comments

We had a little situation last week where we ended up in A&E with Billy. Of course it wasn't a pleasant experience, but thankfully it had a positive outcome. I wasn't going to mention it here, but then I remembered that I was actually googling things like a maniac when we were trying to decide what [...]

Bathing In Porridge Oats

By | May 21st, 2015|Parenting|4 Comments

I wanted to pass on this little piece of advice that a friend of mine gave to me recently. To give you a bit of background, Billy has very sensitive skin. Since he was a newborn he always reacted to any kind of product. I fell for the romantic marketing and bought the Johnsons products, which [...]

My Anxiety Medication

By | May 18th, 2015|Parenting|17 Comments

I've been anxious about writing this post. How's that for ironic? It's not exactly the most attractive topic to write about. Not that that bothers me in the slightest, but I suppose it's exposing yourself in a different way than you did before. Making yourself more vulnerable in a way. When I started this blog in March [...]

9 Months On The Outside

By | March 11th, 2015|9 months, breastfeeding, Parenting, update|4 Comments

It's that time again. Another month has passed and our little Billy Bear is 9 months old. God, there is really something about 9 months. It sounds punchy when I say it. It just sounds big. It's almost like the next biggest milestone before the big 1. I really genuinely cannot believe that my little [...]

Recipe : Baby/Toddler Cheesy Vegetable Fritters

I'm always on the look out for new and interesting foods to introduce Billy to. I love batch-cooking recipes and storing some of the portions in the freezer. It feels really good knowing what he is eating and knowing exactly what ingredients have gone in to the dish. I'm going to be sharing as many [...]
