Funky Giraffe Bib Review

Typically, bibs are a must have accessory to weaning and feeding times. I personally rarely used them. I figured that kids will get messy and nothing can be so bad that our washing machine can’t handle – right?! With baby led weaning fully established and P2 being nearly 14 months old we’ve started to allow her to feed herself her …

“Both of us grew up with animals around us”

I’ve always had a love for animals. I’ve always respected them even if sometimes they didn’t respect me. As a child, my earliest memories, I’ve been surrounded by various animals. As a child, I grew up with a mum who’s career was a veterinary nurse. We actually lived attached to a veterinary clinic… When I say attached I mean part …

“This is even worse than when she was newborn”

Last night was night four that P2 has been up every hour. It seems to have happened with her illness but she’s not poorly anymore and seems to have made it a habit. I thought we’d finally cracked, nearly, her sleep patterns. She’d wake up in the morning at 7:30am, have just one nap a day in her cot at …

Pregnancy Diaries – 14 Weeks #3

I’m at that stage where I just look like I’ve been eating too much chocolate cake… Oh wait I have! I’m struggling to dress myself as I’ve always worn quite tight items of clothing. I feel fat and frumpy in anything I dare to wear. However, my boobies are slowly creeping towards my breastfeeding size so that’s a little bonus …

Extra Narrow Swing Shut Safety Gate from Tippitoes

I’ve very rarely used stairgates in P1s life span. The last time I used them was when I shared a house with one of my friends and her daughter. P1 has always understood, always been slow and careful when moving herself about especially up and down stairs. Then P2 came along, and we moved out. We actually moved before she …

“By 10pm her temp had rocketed to between 40-41.4c”

We’re half way through the first week of school Easter holidays. Just before they started I said I was determined to do stuff because last time we were all sick and I was even more focused on keeping everyone healthy. Well, so far, Monday we went to an ante-natal clinic which can’t have been much fun for the girls. Tuesday, …

Pregnancy Diaries – 12 – 13 Weeks #3

Apparently I’m entering the second trimester already! I’m supposed to start feeling more energised and less sick from now on… We’ll see… Week 12 saw a huge wave of exhaustion and dizziness. Hubby told me to enjoy this pregnancy as it will be my last but it’s very hard to enjoy it when you feel so darn rubbish!! I’ve literally …

Letter To My Nan – 7 Months

Hi Nan, I have some pretty big news for you. We are having another baby! I can imagine you rolling your eyes and saying “I thought you might be”. You knew with P2. I’m a little upset about things though, the thought of you never meeting this baby and not having you come visit me in the hospital just hours …

“I’ve entered that world now”

So I’ve entered that world now… The world of questions and people you don’t normally speak to expecting answers and you have to answer otherwise it’s rude! Yeah… That world. It’s been just one day, actually less than that, since I announced to the world that we are having baby number three! It’s a little daunting when people say “you’re …

“I’m pregnant with baby number 3!”

I’ve lost complete motivation in my blog the past two months and finally I can explain why. It’s been the fact I’ve been unable to speak about my life fully as we’ve had a secret to keep. That secret is rather scary, will change the dynamics of life as I know it. Deep breath in… We’re adding another member to …

Fisher-Price Feeding Range Review

P2 has always been a very independent eater and absolutely loves and embraces her food. As you all know, I’m a huge fan of Fisher-Price and was rather excited when they told me about their new feeding range being launched on 24th March! We’ve been putting some of the range to test. The Learn-to-Hold spoons are brilliant!! They feature bending …
