This bank holiday weekend was a bit of a scorcher! So one of our favourite things to do as a family on sunny Summer days is head to the park with a full to the brim picnic basket, some cosy blankets and a game or 2 and enjoy a few hours relaxing in the sunshine whilst it lasts!
On bank holiday Monday we got up early and decided this was exactly what we should do and planned a trip to one of our favourite parks that has a beautiful manor house in the grounds, but before we c
Summer. It's definitely my favourite season. Light evenings, warm days and summer dresses are among the things that make me happiest. I think the sunny weather is good for your soul and instantly puts you in a good mood. However, sometimes the Great British weather has other ideas and this week we've found ourselves saying bye bye sunshine, hello wind, rain and thunderstorms. Did I fall asleep for 3 months and wake up in October? (Haha who am I kidding? I have a newborn, I do
It seems like moments ago I was looking down at my bump and wondering who you were. Did you have hair? Would you look like your big brother? Well it didn't take us long to get the answer to that question as you are the image of him, but so completely unique at the same time. My beautiful Elliot, it's sounds like a total cliche but I can't imagine you not being here now. Part of this crazy little family. The house that's slowly being taken over by boys and I couldn't be happie
We're getting closer and closer to becoming a family of four. The days and weeks have been flying past us and in all honesty, I don't know where that last 33 weeks have gone. But something I've thought about a lot in that time, and I'm sure it's a topic that gets every parent thinking, or even worrying, is how will our toddler adjust to becoming a big brother/sister? It's a big transition to go from being the baby of the family, having your parents and grandparents undivided
I'm not sure if it's the time of year that's making me nostalgic or the fact that I'm pregnant and probably a little too emotional, but lately I've found myself looking back at old photos really often. Whether they be ones from 10 years ago, or snaps we've taken over the last year, It's been something that I've really felt the urge to do lately. I love looking back on our photos and family vlogs, and having these special or even ordinary moments captured in time forever is so
For a while now I've been wanting to write a post like this. To just sit down and let the words spill out. But every time I try, it's as though my thoughts are stuck, as though they're locked in my head and I've lost the key. I get frustrated sometimes at not being able to properly express how I feel, which usually means I take that frustration out on the ones I love, more often than not my poor husband, who has no idea what he's done wrong!
I've felt a bit lost lately, lik
I count myself very lucky that I've always had a close relationship with my Mum. Not everyone is given that opportunity in life and I've made a mental note to show her more just how much I care. She's given me a lot of support and advice over the years and always encouraged me to follow my dreams. My Mum was never very strict with me, I think this is one of the reasons I never rebelled and we never had many heated Mother/daughter arguments when I was a teenager. She always ha
Toddlers are like a riddle that's impossible to solve. Just when you think you've got it sussed and are doing quite well at this parenting thing, they throw you another curveball that changes everything. Archie is about to turn 22 months but I feel like the terrible two's are already knocking at our door! But on a recent trip to the park, as I watched my little whirlwind run ahead without a care in the world, I suddenly realised that this moment, right here and now might be o
Messy play. Two words that fill me with equal parts excitement and horror! Archie's favourite thing to do by far is painting and drawing. I have to admit I don't get the paints out as much as Archie would like which makes me feel bad, but the thought of the clean up can be a bit of a nightmare, especially when he's asking for the paints at 7:00am! But recently, the boys and I decided to throw caution to the wind and have the messiest of messy play days (I know. We're wild!) W
Recently the boys and I went for a little weekend get away by the sea. It was just the sort of thing the three of us needed, as we've been working a lot lately and the days just feel like they're flying. Weeks are turning into months before we've even had a second to sit down and just breathe. So when FatFace offered to whisk us away on a weekend of happiness, we jumped at the chance.
So last Friday, we packed up our bags and headed towards the sleepy town of Sandwich, not
I took these pictures of Archie the day he turned 18 months and they really capture everything about he's cheeky personality and boundless energy at this stage. I'm going to do a full video for his 18 month update soon, so watch out for that. But I just wanted to share these pictures with you and document some of the little things about him at this age. At 18 months he's really starting to develop his individual personality, and I find myself looking at him so often thinking
