Letter To My Princess 3 – 11 Months

To my Princess 3, Today you turned 11 months. These past 11 months have zoomed past and it feels like such a long time ago that you were a tiny screeching baby that we could never figure out. I don’t think you look like other nearly 1 year olds. I still think you are very baby-like in appearance which is …

“It’s been exactly a week since I last hugged my biggest daughter”

It’s been exactly a week since I last hugged my biggest daughter. I waved P1 off with my Grandad, her Great-Grandad, for 9 days away with him, my Mum, step-dad and brother. They’re currently staying in one of my favourite holiday destinations and generally a place I’ve dreamed of living myself, Gloucester. I wrote about how I felt I would …

“I am beginning to ask myself why she doesn’t sleep yet”

With a certain somebody headed quite quickly towards her third birthday I am beginning to ask myself why she doesn’t sleep yet. I have a nearly 11 month old who sleeps in the cot peacefully until morning, only really stirring when we go to bed or when her older sister shouts for me in the night. I wonder if P3 …

A Surprise Photoshoot

A few weeks ago one of my friends had arranged a surprise for our friendship group. She wouldn’t tell us what but just to pack a picnic and meet at Knole Park, the local National Trust site. It was beautiful there and I realised that we should really get outdoors more for adventures with my big camera because the setting …

Siblings August 2015

For all of this time I have been worrying about the relationships forming between my Siblings. Terrified they would hate each other forever. I’ve always wanted them to be the best of friends with visions of them happily choosing to go shopping or the cinema with each other. That’s what I want for them. Someone to always turn to. Best …

“I didn’t fully realise just how much I relied on her”

When my Grandad asked me if it was ok to take P1 on holiday for a week I jumped at the chance. A whole week of no arguing, no shouting, no rudeness and battles at bedtime. We needed a break from her if I’m completely honest as at the time, she was absolutely awful to be around. Typically, in the …

Climbing The Stairs At 10 Months

In January last year P2 climbed my MiLs stairs for the very first time. She was 11 months and 10 days old. It shocked us as she’d never made any indications that she wanted to climb anything. Today, at 10 months and 11 days old, P3 has climbed my MiLs stairs for the first time. I didn’t get to capture …

Letter To My Princess 2 – 2 Years 6 Months

To my Princess 2, Two and a half years you have been in our lives. I say it all the time but time is really flying past and it feels like just yesterday that I met my chubby little monkey for the first time. You are so different from your older sister. You’re heavier, sturdier and much more laid back. …

Letter To My Princess 3 – 10 Months

To my Princess 3, You are no longer a tiny baby watching the world go by. You’re firmly in that world, exploring and getting involved in absolutely everything. You are gaining a beautiful personality. It’s so different yet so alike to your big sisters. There’s a cheeky streak about you and I can see you’re going to cause chaos. But …

“Finally we have a preschool placement”

I have been desperate to get P2 into a nursery or preschool. She’s been on four different lists. It feels like such a long time since we put P2s name on the first nursery and preschool waiting list. This week we have finally been offered a nursery place for our beautiful 2 year old. Finally we have a preschool placement! …

“We’ve slipped back into a horrible routine”

I had hoped to be writing a post about how well P2 was doing with giving up milk. We decided about two weeks ago that we needed to cut it out completely to start with. Like an addiction. It’s how we helped her to lose her dummies that she was so addicted to last year and that “cold turkey” approached …

Siblings July 2015

When I see photos of all three of my daughters together I struggle to see similarities between them. They all have the same hair colour. The same big eyes. But they are so different. P1 is the image of me, P3 is the image of Hubby but P2 is a bit of an odd bod. She looks like Hubby more …

“Separation anxiety has consumed P2!”

Have you heard of children experiencing separation anxiety? I have but I’ve never truly experienced it until now. To be honest I think it’s been creeping upon us for a while. I first witnessed the terror myself when P2 panicked and cried because she couldn’t see me amongst the mummy’s on the playground. I had her in complete view but …
