Touch Me

It’s so crazy how grown up P2 is becoming and so fast she’s doing it! In the past few days she’s really begun to touch things, hold things and bite things – uh oh! Don’t worry, she isn’t suffocating herself… Yesterday, she was absolutely fascinated by my OHs top. Staring intensely at it, trying to reach forwards to grab it. …

I Didn’t Invite You Aunt Flow?!

Aunt Flow decided to pay a visit. I’m not overly impressed at her unwelcome visits. This is the second visit I’ve had since P2s birth (not counting the 6 weeks I bled continuously). Don’t get me wrong a visit from AF means that I’m not pregnant and have working ovaries and womb – fantastic. However, I’m breastfeeding, exclusively so why …

Boys And Their Toys

I’ve had a lovely, busy morning with my OH. We had a meeting at the Ford dealer to discuss a new car. My current Fiesta Zetec is just too small, I have to remove the wheels of the pram for it to fit! I know you’re probably thinking “just get a new pram” I got to test drive a 2010 …

Baby Rug – Bug In A Rug Review

I was sent a special baby blanket from Baby Rug this week. I was uber excited to get using it. The weather has been really wonderful so this week we have been quite busy, giving me ample time to test the product out I was a bit concerned that the fleece type material would be too hot for P2 to wear …

To My Princesses – Letter 5

To my Princesses, It really feels like we haven’t stopped this past week! I started a challenge to help with the amount of shouting I do, and that’s also had quite an impact this week. I really want to be the best Mummy I can be and I know I fail at it, especially recently. I have got into more …

Challenge Day#8

I think we may be starting to see a difference in P1 since I’ve stopped, no.. reduced my shouting. Today, well today was amazing!! She got dressed without a fight, even her shoes, she went to nursery happy and when I picked her up she was fantastic too!! So much so that I treated her to the circus (a post …

Challenge Day#7

P1 was fantastic this morning! I didn’t have to raise my voice at all. 7:45PM – Raised to level 3, but it was a misunderstanding on my behalf so I apologised to her. Bedtime went smoothly too. Good day!

Breast Feeding Support Group

I attended my first ever baby group this morning. It was a breast feeding support group. I don’t want to sound boastful, but I didn’t really need any support. My breast feeding experience has been pretty easy for the both of us, I have plenty of milk and P2 latches perfectly – the only niggle we’ve ever had was right at the …

I’m Not Hungry

With growth tests looming, I’m trying to make sure P1 eats as much as she can. However, this is proving rather difficult with a child who seems to have an eating disorder. I’m petite, so P1 will never be a big girl but her appetite is appalling, and in all honesty worrying! I remember when she used to happily eat a …

To My Princesses – Letter 3

To my Princesses, This week feels like it has been really busy but in reality, looking back I don’t think it has been that busy. I have made a schedule for our home, a cleaning schedule so that has pretty much taken over my days now which is great really. I’m finally getting into a routine so we can all …

I’ve Just Got To Be Brave

Just a quick post this morning. I’m about to leave P2 for the first time since she was conceived!!!!!!!!!!!!!! That’s like a whole year ago! I’m so nervous. She’ll be in the fantastic, well experienced, loving hands of my MiL. Am I still nervous? YESSS! I don’t even know what exactly I’m nervous of. The emotions I’ll feel leaving her? …
