Memory Lane

Just a short muddled post this evening. P2 is pretty much sitting up on her own now. It kind of happened overnight. Ok, she’s still toppling over every now and then but she’s amazing. I just cannot believe how grown up she is and she’s in to everything, especially food! I spent the majority of today sorting out wedding bits. …

Feeling Calmer

I cannot believe how grown up P1 is. She’s always been very mature for her age but recently she’s been outstanding especially with her little sister! In the past few days she’s been so helpful. Actually asking to change P2s bottom, get her dressed and give her a bottle. This evening she wanted to feed her sister her dinner, and …

Fisher-Price Grow-With-Me Highchair Review

I was very excited when I was asked to review a high chair for Fisher-Price. Especially as it’s completely brand new and not many have had the chance to even see it yet! We were fast approaching the weaning stages. My OH fixed all the pieces together. It was very straightforward and took no time at all. I always like …

Sleep Parenting

There’s research that says a co sleeping mother will regulate their baby’s temperature, breastfeed whilst asleep and many other wonders. My OH has witnessed P2 stir slightly, and then I would stir too. The scariest thing for me though has happened several times and its happened when I’ve not been co sleeping. I’ve woken up several times to find P2 …

Food Glorious Food

I’m really loving my food at the moment and my appetite is matching. I was doing so well on losing weight, toning up and feeling fantastic when I looked in the mirror. I even felt sexy if I’m honest. But the past few weeks I’ve been feeling down about breastfeeding and every time I look at the naked reflection staring …

What A Mess!

I’ve successfully completed two days of combine feeding, I say successfully, my left boob hasn’t quite triggered that P2 doesn’t want it anymore and has gone over drive on producing milk! We went round to my MiLs yesterday, this was the first day of combine feeding, I’d fed P2 all through the night and stopped after her first morning feed. …

Cow & Gate 100% Fruit Pouches Review

I was very excited to receive some tasty goodies for P2. Cow & Gate sent us a lovely package of pouches which arrived just in time for our holiday last week. Unfortunately the USB was not compatible our operating system – Windows 8. The pouches are made from 100% fruit with added vitamin C. I do like to know that …

The Next Phase

After a lot of crying, extremely large and painful boobs I have managed to persuade P2 into having night and morning feeds. Since posting about my struggles I’ve had so many people giving advice. I tried to get her to feed two days ago, which went fine for our morning feed but not so fantastic for the rest of the …

To My Princess 2 – 6 Months

To My Princess 2, I have absolutely no idea where the past 6 months have gone. You’ve achieved so much in that time and that means you are growing closer to your first birthday! You are a rolling, nearly sitting, smiling, laughing, bouncing, feet holding, strong minded, waving, eating, sleeping, cloth wearing beautiful little girl. This past month you have …

My Milk Has Gone

It’s gone. And I’m devastated. I knew this time would come, especially the past few weeks where I’ve noticed significant changes in our feeding patterns and my boobs. But tonight, it’s gone. I’ve used the last of my expressed milk too, except one frozen bag that I have round my MiLs which will be sent to make a keepsake. I …

Appeal Unsuccessful

Guess what? P1 doesn’t have a school. Yup. Our appeal was unsuccessful and I found this out the day before we went on holiday! We are half way through the school holidays. This is meant to be a time where my OH and I were going to part with lots of cash buying uniforms and stationary for our daughter. She …

Is This The End Of My Breastfeeding Journey?!

I’m quite upset that I’m writing this post in a way. I think we are about ready to end our breastfeeding journey. Well not completely anyway. It’s been about a month of weaning now, P2 is now on three meals a day which is usually half a jar. We’ve had no problems except the one toilet trouble during the first …

So we are home, unpacked and back to reality. Both girls and me are having major holiday withdrawals. P1 is struggling to find anything that amuses her, and P2 is rather down in the dumps. Here’s some of our holiday highlights: Our accommodation All that fresh air has wore them both out Trip to Longleat Safari Rainy stormy weather Cheddar …
