Two Under Two Diaries: Our First Month Together

After a whirlwind few weeks, Pearl turns one month old today. Can you believe it? I feel like I always say that about my children’s milestones, but honestly I can’t believe how quickly the time has gone this time! Does it speed up every time you have a baby? It’s…

Pearl’s Positive Birth Story

I can’t quite believe I’m writing this, but I am going to tell you my positive birth story. Yes, I actually experienced this elusive ‘positive birth’ that I’d heard everyone talking about but I’ll admit that in heart-of-hearts I never thought I’d ever be able to achieve. I might have even…

Every girl needs a furry best friend, right?! Well, Robbie is in luck as he just got a brand new playmate to play with and he couldn’t be a prouder big brother! If you’ve been reading my blog a while, I’m sure you’ll have seen me talking about Robbie, but…

Weaning: 5 Things I’d do differently next time

I’m sure you’ve seen my recent posts (mainly of frustration!) around weaning Violet and her journey with eating. She is not a big eater and is extremely fussy, which has been a real surprise to me. I naively thought as I eat a huge variety of foods, flavours and spices,…

Review: Fisher Price Laugh & Learn Range

Just recently I’ve noticed a difference in the way that Violet plays with her toys. As she is 18 months now, she’s started to understand exactly how to play with each toy and what it does, rather than just being attracted to pretty shapes, colours or textures. With the new…

Top tips for family meal times & a giveaway with Portmeirion

If I could say which element of parenting I find the most stressful, I’d say anything to do with eating, for sure. Give me a full on toddler temper tantrum to deal with over a spilt bowl of macaroni cheese any day. Violet hasn’t been the easiest baby to wean…

Pregnancy #2: 37 week update – we are fully cooked!

It’s hard to get my head around that as of today, our baby is FULLY COOKED and could arrive at any moment! The baby is apparently the size of a Honeydew Melon, and feels as heavy as one too. I am starting to feel like the baby is seriously starting to run…
