Two and a half years of being a mum! Crazy how quickly it has gone (and at times very slowly). My last update was at 18 months old - I really must write these more regularly because although the last year has flown, it also seems like a lifetime ago. So here is the full … Continue reading Milla is two and a half years old!
Ok he’s actually a lot closer to 10 months now but I started writing this a month ago and I’ve been too busy to put this post up! But here it is, better late than never.. It seems crazy to me that there are only a couple of months till my little boy is one. … Continue reading Dash is 9 months old!
The big girl bed transition has happened! Really it just happened out of nowhere and was pretty straight forward.. In the end! Almost two weeks ago I decided to lay down for nap time with Milla in the big bed. It was raining outside and I was tired so it was actually really nice to … Continue reading Big girl bed success
I don't know about you, but I love hearing the stories behind people's names and the reasons they chose certain names for their kids. For instance, my dad read the book "Heidi" when he was a little boy and always knew he'd name his daughter Heidi after the character that he loved. Granted he had … Continue reading What’s in a name?

Plus a new baby who, in … Continue reading Toddler Sleep and the Big Girl Bed Saga

Let's call it part 1 and to be continued. 1/ You can survive for months on very little and broken sleep. … Continue reading The things I’ve learnt about motherhood
If you have read my first post about breastfeeding (you can read about it here), I can say that my second experience has (thankfully) been the complete opposite! So it’s bittersweet to be writing about it now as our breastfeeding journey has come to an end. After 8 months of feeding my little boy, he … Continue reading Breastfeeding: Part 2 (and Final)
Hello my friends I’m back! Full of new years good intentions and bucketfuls of hope that this is the year I smash some business and personal goals and come back from the trenches of being a very new mum to two kids 20 months apart. Realistically, life is still going to be pretty full on … Continue reading Oh hey there 2018
I'm writing this in amongst moving house chaos. It's been on my mind to write this story down but the last few months have just been nuts (if you have been playing along on Instagram, you'll know we've been dealing with buying a house, selling a house, a sick toddler (also adjusting to a new … Continue reading Dash’s Birth Story
