To My Princess 2 – 11 Months

To Princess 2, I cannot believe that you are 11 months old today. The time is just flying by so fast now. This past month you’ve really started to show a pretty cheeky personality. You know exactly what you want and you get it. Still no walking, but you crawl super quick and even follow us when we call your …

Pipsy Koala Splash Mat, Foam Bath Animals & 2014 Calendar Review

Christmas seemed to be a bombardment of gifts and exciting new toys. We had wrapping and boxes everywhere. On P1s birthday we received a package from Pipsy Koala. Inside included their new calendar, foam bath animals and a splash mat. I’m a bit of a lover of calendars and diaries. I have to shamefully admit that I don’t think I’ve …

Letter To My Nan – 4 Months

Hi Nan, I’m really struggling this month accepting that I’ll never see you again or be able to feel your warm arms around me as our glasses clash when we hug. I miss you! Grandad wasn’t very imaginative with the Christmas presents this year, he definitely needs you to guide him on that one. I did all our Christmas shopping …

Goals & Resolutions For 2014

I’m so relieved that 2013 is nearly over. The start of it wasn’t too bad; we welcomed P2 into our lives, had a pretty awesome weekend away with hubby’s family, went away for the weekend as our own little family, a week camping with my family, on the 3rd September we saw our biggest girl start big school. This was …

“I definitely think the girls are about to travel like royalty”

The moment you see that positive pregnancy test your whole life changes. You spend every second of every day fighting to keep your little one safe. The impending fact that P2 will be needing a new car seat has been playing on my mind for a while. She’s becoming more and more squished inside the baby Maxi-Cosi CabrioFix and her …

“Separation anxiety”

Our littlest lady is experiencing major withdrawal symptoms from her big sister today. It started this morning. My hubby got up with P2 and snuggled her into bed with us. It was 9am so a major lay in anyway.   She spent the whole of the 30 minutes staring at the door and calling, in the way we know is …

Boxing Day is traditionally the day following Christmas Day, when servants and tradesmen would receive gifts, known as a “Christmas box”, from their bosses or employers. Today, Boxing Day is the bank holiday that generally takes place on 26 December. These days Boxing Day is more about the calm after Christmas Day, allocating homes for all the new gifts, tidying …

Christmas Day 2013

This is the first year in my whole entire life that I haven’t been with my Mum, Nan and Grandad on Christmas! After the mad unwrapping session with the girls this morning I think it really hit me. So much has changed this past year, the biggest and worst change of all was the loss of my Nan.   She …

Christmas Eve – (To Princess 1 – 5 Years)

To Princess 1, Happy birthday!!! I can’t believe you are five years old. It’s just crazy. You’ve been on earth for half a decade. You arrived to us after 19 hours of premature labour at 10:27am on Christmas Eve. You just couldn’t wait another seven weeks of being inside my tummy. You had a rough start but you’ve never stopped …

Christmas Part 2

Yesterday, we had our Christmas family gathering round the MiLs. Hubby’s Grandparents, Uncle, Auntie & Cousins/OHs were all there ready for games, quizzes and food. My MiL is always really good at organising parties full of fun. Again, I think it’s best to just show you our day in pictures: I used my new camera today! Do you like the …

Christmas Part 1

Yesterday, we celebrated Christmas with my family. Unfortunately, hubby and P2 didn’t make it, but P1 and I had a truly wonderful day and were very spoilt. I’ve been having a toy sort out but to be honest I think I should have just completely got rid of everything we have here apart from those memorable items and started again!! …

As you all know, because I bang on about it all the time, I’m a mother of a premature baby. My first born. My little ray of sunshine who fought through her first few weeks …
