To My Princesses – Letter 1

(I’ve decided to do a dedicated post each Wednesday for my two Princesses. They were both born on a Wednesday so it seems appropriate for the post to be done on a Wednesday and I’d love for them to be able to read about their lives when they grow up.) To my Princesses, I started this blog as an online …

DP – Judgement Day

If you were to judge your favorite book by its cover, would you still read it?   My absolute favourite writer of all time is Sophie Kinsella. If I could I would own all her books and reread them over and over and over again. I definitely think that the book covers do the book justice. They are colourful and …

DP – Déjà Vu

Have you ever truly felt déjà vu, the sensation that you’ve already had the experience you’re currently having? On several occasions I’ve felt a weird sense of déjà vu. P1 has been the culprit of many. Most recently she was standing at the end of bed. She turned sideways and a weird feeling fell on my body. I’d been in …

That’s Definitely Not A Boobie

There’s absolutely no way I’m anywhere near ready to give up breastfeeding. I’m completely in love with doing it. It feels so natural and the bond I have with P2 because of it is amazing. However, it’s been playing on my mind that P2 hates the dummy. Therefore I’m scared she’ll hate a bottle and desperately want her to try …

Slow Up Speed Down

In April we find out whether P1 has got into the school we chose. For a lot of parents they’ll be wondering which school their children got into. You are meant to put three choices but we hated the other schools in our catchment area so only put one down. We’ll have to appeal if she doesn’t get in! Anyway, …

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 …

Excellence

I had a perfectly perfect day today. I had a leisurely “get up” this morning. No rushing about and no arguments. Still haven’t managed a bath time without P2 crying though. I dropped P1 with my Grandparents like usual for a Tuesday and headed off to visit my work with P2. On maternity leave yet can’t keep away. I then …

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” …

40 Acts – Day 25 – Share A Good Joke

Think of your favourite joke, and share it with someone today. Make it your Facebook status, or perhaps tell it over a meal tonight. Have a back-up in case it doesn’t work, and make your back-up a deliberately unfunny joke. That way if your first one falls flat, you and your audience can unite over how bad the second one …

First Smiles & A Happy Day

I’ve had a perfect day today – well almost perfect P2 did have a slight nappy leak. We had the HV come today and weigh P2. She’s now 9lb 6oz (4.25kg) !!!!!!! Our little porker. Today also marked her first smile. I’m pretty darn sure it wasn’t wind this time… She did it at me this morning accompanied with a …
