Hell, it’s probably only been the last few months that I have truly felt like the mother I thought I would be. And that we all do our best, and we are Amazing at what we do.
Ava is teething, and has a cold, and a cough. She hasn't cried and grizzled like this since the early colic days circa 6-13 weeks. She has bright red cheeks, massive molar gum lumps, a horrible cough and a tired mummy and daddy. We have dosed up, cuddled, distracted, fresh-aired, bounced, cooled and bathed. Most … Continue reading The Little Things
I Absolutely adore this outfit- a loose knit oversized jumper with a cute gold trim bow from H&M, teamed with these awesome, very grown-up looking dungarees. Casual, warm and ever so practical for early starts and Nursery days. Check out the H&M Babywear collection here- a firm faveourite of ours. Xxx
It's been forever since I uploaded one of 'Ava's outfits'- this is one of my favourite at the moment. Gifted to us by her wonderful Godmother, Jo.

We didn't think we would make it over this year, but with some late leave granted for … Continue reading Travelling with an infant- our trip to Barbados

She crawls everywhere, walks with furniture and her walker (with help), laughs a lot, claps, points, knows exactly what … Continue reading October Leaves
I need my little baby to stop growing! Time is going WAY too fast, I'm desperately clinging on to the last few precious months of maternity leave and savouring each day with my precious baby. We have a crawling Ava, with (almost) FOUR teeth, and this month we have eaten lots of new foods, played, … Continue reading 8 months old.
"The sirens did go on, and he did panic, as I disappeared up the street......he didn't know the way to the Princess Anne hospital (bad planning) and had no one to follow!"
How quickly do these months go!? Ava grows, learns and changes every day. Each day is different, and that is what I love about motherhood. Every achievement Ava celebrates, I celebrate too. I'm willing her on, always, and each new development astounds me. Vital stats: Weight: It's been a few weeks since we got Ava … Continue reading 7 months old!
