Maybe Baby

We had a slight break through last night. P2 had her last nap at about 6-7:30pm. We then managed to keep her awake until 10:30. Where she had her feed and I put her down awake with the mobile playing. She didn’t go to sleep straight away, I had to pick her up and give her a bit of a …

Is A Routine Needed

Sometimes I hate being small. Especially as I’m a parent too. Especially being a parent of P2. She’s huge! Very long, against me she looks like a toddler, against anyone else she’s still my teeny baby. We had her weighed today, 13lb 2oz. Last time she was weighed she dropped a line on the growth chart from 50th to 25th, …

I’ve been eagerly awaiting the date that it starts and we only have one more week to go! Wooo. I have also been …

Happy Father’s Day

I think Father’s Day is a little unfair. On Mother’s Day all mothers are meant to put their feet up and be completely spoiled rotten. On Father’s Day, all fathers are meant to have lay ins and be doted on…Erm… Doesn’t this happen every day?! My OH is an amazing Daddy. He truly is. He’s come into our life, P1 …

Oh Man!!!!!!

Seriously, I’m exhausted. Quick post this morning. P2 just would not settle in her cot last night. She’s done so well up until then. She woke up so many times I felt like a yoyo. I persevered three times but when the fourth arrived and they’d all been within about 3hours of me going to bed, I gave up. I …

This Is The Life

We tried out a different play centre today. The Fun Factory. It has an indoor ice rink, indoor climbing wall, soft play for ages 0-13yrs and a sensory room. I’m still debating as to whether its better than our usual choice of play. I love that it has more of a variety for the children. I love the sensory option …

First Tastes, Highchair Needed Soon?!

This morning we gave P2 her first taste of something other than milk. She’s 18 weeks old, a little early than the newly recommended 26weeks, but considering I weaned P1 at 4 months I’m quite confident that having a little munch on something wouldn’t harm her. P2 was allowed to try a rusk. She absolutely loved it! Her gums munched …

I was approached by Little Bird Told Me recently to review a product for them. They gave me the choice of many beautiful toys. Luckily, I’m already a huge fan of their products and we have the Mama Bear and Activity Spiral, I really wanted to review the Birdy Bear Activity Toy but my OH persuaded me to get Papa …

DP – Person Of The Year

You’re asked to nominate someone for TIME’s Person of the Year. Who would it be, and why? My person of the year would be my OH. I’m slightly bias of course, he’s the one person that’s been there for me no matter what. In the past year he has held back my hair countless times whilst I suffer with morning …

Hollyoaks Upset

I was getting rather frustrated with a Hollyoaks story line. I know… It’s only a soap. If anyone watches it, you’ll all know about the Sinead O’Connor storyline. She fell pregnant with Rhys Ashworth’s baby, and has now given her baby to her step-mother. The whole storyline has frustrated me. I hate how Hollyoaks is making young mothers look like …

Bounty Mutiny

Mumsnet has started a campaign to end Bounty Sales Reps being able to go into maternity wards. When I first read about it on Twitter I didn’t think there would be many people against Bounty Reps. But there is! Including me. With P1, they came and asked if I’d like a picture of her. They must have been completely blind, …

“I’m too squished in here Mummy!”

We’ve had one of those days. It’s been terrible… But the outcome is that our bedroom is pretty much spotless. Finally. And at a completely manageable state. Now all I have to do is actually manage it. P1 has hit yet another phase of repeating and asking the question “why?” I have lost count of the amount of times I’ve …

Zombie State Of Living

As P2 grows in herself, her sleep pattern seems to deteriorate. Drastically. I’m feeling the most sleep deprived I have the whole 17 weeks and 6 days of her existence in the real world. I don’t even think she’s solely to blame. She didn’t used to fall asleep for the night until 10:30pm, but now she falls asleep somewhere between …

Up Do

I’ve been looking at wedding hair styles today. Now the dress is sorted, and I’ve decided on who I want to do my make up, I’ve started researching people who can do my hair. I’m very picky when it comes to hair. I’ve only recently found a hairdresser that can cut my hair exactly how I ask, and that was …

Round Like A Circle

I’m feeling angry at myself. The anger gets stronger each day. I hate who I am. Who I’ve become. Where I’m heading. Why do I have no motivation? I have three things I need to do: 1) Express milk. 2) Tidy the room. 3) Exercise. I fail to even do one of those each day! All are as important as …
