Nappy Rumbles

Nearly 4am in the morning and instead of sleeping whilst P2 is happy kicking about her Moses basket I’m awake posting about how stupid I am. I fell asleep with P2 snuggled next to me – as usual. But she woke me up with all the wriggling and bottom burping she was doing. Although she was sound asleep I decided …

Funny Little Things

  I love being a Mum. Today I have made a big effort in letting P2 self soothe. I seriously thought I’d end up crying myself but she was so excellent! Not a tear shed for either of us. I fed her, I burped her whilst over my shoulder, then I put her wide awake in her bouncer where she …

Expect The Unexpected

I bet we are all guilty of checking health issues online. If you type in your symptoms of a cold if would probably tell you that you could be dying of something completely unrelated. I’ve mentioned before that P1 attends physiotherapy for her lower limbs. She’s been loosely diagnosed with hypermobility – I say loosely because nobody from the physiotherapy …

Comparisons – I’ve Done It Again

I wrote a post about being naughty and comparing my daughters. Well I found P1s Red Book the other day. Even they are different! I immediately went to the weight chart for P1 and looked for the nearest weight to what P2 is at the moment. I know I need to stop comparing – of course they are both different …

I Did It

I’ve been nervous about expressing for a while – trying to decide when the right time would be to do it. I found the courage to express last night. It was prompted by a conversation with my OH a few days ago. We were discussing anniversary presents. I’ve sorted his present but it’s been quite tricky for my OH as …

Baby Wearing – Review 7

I’ve grown to learn that P2 is a baby who just loves mummy snuggles. This isn’t such a bad thing as an overall… But it’s becoming difficult with the life we have. Unfortunately I don’t have the time to just sit around anymore and cuddle. That upsets me. But P1 needs her mummy too and there’s housework that needs to …

Cherished Moments

I collected the girls handprint/footprint plates we made the other week at Clay Cottage. The business is owned by a family member so I feel quite welcome there and it’s somewhere I plan to go more often with both the girls. They have come out absolutely beautiful and I cannot wait to be able to hang them up in our …

Happy 5 Weeks Princess 2

Happy 5 weeks Princess 2. I’m still in utter shock at just how different things are with P2. She hasn’t had the “boot camp” of Special Care like P1 who was pretty much forced to settle herself in the incubator. P2 however struggles can’t settle herself, she has to be held or have boobie for her to fall asleep. She’s …

Little Miss Chatterbox

We’ve been having an issue with P1. I’m sure or at least I hope that all parents struggle with this issue with their children at some stage. Interrupting when others talk. Please tell me I’m not the only one?! It doesn’t matter who you are, where you are or what you are doing she’ll interrupt. Even when told to “sssshhhh” …

I’m Growing Up

We all battled our colds and viewed a house yesterday. A house for sale. We viewed one of three , 3 bed terraced houses that were for sale through the HomeBuy scheme for shared ownership – which meant potentially we could own our first home a bit quicker than expected. It was on the smaller side of what I’d hoped …

I Think I’m Going LoopyLoo

The only thing keeping me sane at 2am in the morning whilst my throat is on fire, my OH is groaning in his sleep and P2 is quite clearly not well and using my nipple as a comforter and occasionally a milk dispenser is how bloody cute she looks in a white footless sleep suit. Now go to sleep baby!

Where Did That Come From?

When preparing for the arrival of our second daughter we bought everything we may need. I had visions to breastfeed for just a few weeks. So we bought all the equipment for bottle feeding – steriliser, bottles, express pump, dummies, milk powder dispenser etc etc. They are all sitting in the under-cot-storage-drawer. Gathering dust most likely. I haven’t expressed yet. …

40 Acts – Day 21 – Say Thank You

Think about those people who’ve helped you or had a positive influence on your life. Phone, write a letter or even visit them to say ‘thank you’. Remember the small things too – the everyday things which deserve a ‘thank you’. I sent an email to my OH this morning thanking him for literally everything. I didn’t just say “thank …

Do You Lock Your Car Doors?

I read something on the Sky News app today about man stealing a car which had a two month old baby in the back who he then strangled and buried in snow. This is quite clearly disgusting and I will never understand what goes through the minds of others but it made me think of all the times I’ve left …
