It seems like only yesterday that Violet was born and now she’s a ONE YEAR OLD. I just can’t get my head around how quickly the year has gone! Sadly, on her birthday, she woke up lots in the night with a streaming cold, she had a really awful nights sleep in our bed (meaning
And just like that, my maternity leave is over. Like a giant countdown clock in the sky thats been ticking louder and louder until the familiar music plays, my time is up and it’s time to face the reality of working life again. In fact, this time tomorrow I’ll be at work, which seems a
I really wanted to call this post ‘Our babies are the same age, one has just been frozen in time’ but I thought I’d be sensible and go with our IVF Frozen Embryo Cycle. Slightly less sci-fi, but both of them are true! So, without further ado, here is our amazing journey to getting pregnant
When it comes to finding out the babies gender, I am the MOST impatient person in the world. People say to me ‘don’t you fancy having a surprise?’ but the organiser and meticulous planner in me just wouldn’t be able to cope with that. I like to prepare, I like to know. How would we choose
So, I’m sitting here on my first day without Violet. I dropped her at nursery at 9am this morning and managed to leave without tears (from either of us!) As I ran through the reception I hoped no one would stop to chat as I felt the tears burning my eyes. I only just made
When my pregnancy app flagged up a notification saying ‘Welcome to the Second Trimester!’ I had to do a double take. HOW are we in the second trimester already? It feels like I’ve only just peed on that stick, it doesn’t feel real at all! This pregnancy has just flown by in comparison to Violet’s.
If you’ve been following our weaning journey so far, you’ll know it’s been a) a bumpier ride than I prepared for and b) Violet is turning into a way fussier eater than I expected, seeing as I’ve always been a good eater, even as a child. The whole thing has taken me by surprise to
It’s time for ANOTHER giveaway! I know, I’m feeling rather generous at the moment, so enjoy! Today I am giving away TWO tickets to The Baby Show in London at London ExCeL, which is being held between 2nd-4th March 2018. We went to The Baby Show back when I was pregnant with Violet and it
MEET BABY PEACHES, NO 2 – COMING 08/08/2018! Violets brother or sister has been cooking away quietly for 13 weeks now so I’m pleased to say we can FINALLY share our big news. Today was our scan and baby was happy, wiggling and healthy, with two arms, two legs and a beating heart. Such a
Firstly, some exciting news! A few weeks ago I was recently asked to join the Netmums Star Reviewer panel, which is a small group of bloggers & vloggers chosen to review latest baby products for the Netmums Youtube channel. So, of course I was delighted to join up and was shortly sent my first assignment.
At nearly 11 months old, we have decided to just bite the bullet and delve into the realm of sleep training. Violet is nearly 1 and hasn’t ever been able to self-settle for either naps and bedtime. For the last year we have rocked her until she drifts off every single time she needs to
Welcome to a little round-up of everything we’ve been up to recently! It dawned on me over my blogging break at Christmas that the reason I started my blog was to keep a diary of our lives. I wanted it to be a space to capture my thoughts, memories and something to look back on over
