Maybe it’s wishful thinking that baby number two will arrive early but I have officially packed a hospital bag! At 35 weeks I’m ready to go. So from 37 weeks when I’m “full term” this baby is more than welcome to make his appearance (my pelvis and digestive system would be ever so grateful). So … Continue reading Hospital Bag – The List
As there is only about a month to go until we are back in the newborn sleep deprivation trenches, I thought I would write about sleep (or lack thereof) in our first year of parenting. This is another topic that can be tricky to talk about - everyone has different experiences, different opinions on self … Continue reading The one about sleep
This post is inspired by Pip Lincolne. Just a little insight into life for us right now. 6 weeks until baby! DOING: Multi tasking - blogging, instagramming, watching Netflix, relaxing. HEARING: The crazy windy weather outside due to the cyclone. LOOKING: Forward to Easter - a long weekend with family and my midwife appointment where … Continue reading Taking Stock – 31 March
The topic of breastfeeding can be touchy. It can be so easy to be judgmental of another person’s choices/experiences, but you can’t ever really know what it was like for that one mum and baby. So this is just a post about our experience with breastfeeding for the first time. I support everyone’s right to … Continue reading Breastfeeding
A nice family holiday before bubs arrives seemed like such a nice idea 2 months ago when we organised it. We invited friends (who also have a little 8 month old) for a weekend of beaching, fishing, swimming in the pool, playing board games and the little ones keeping each other entertained! A week out … Continue reading 32 weeks – the weekend we got flooded in in Iluka
I had planned to write down Milla’s birth story from right after she was born, but it was such a hard time with an unsettled baby who didn’t like feeding or sleeping, that the idea just got pushed to the back of my mind (also I’m a procrastinator). It’s already pretty hazy in my memory … Continue reading Milla’s birth story
When I was pregnant with Milla, I used to pore over all the pregnancy and newborn must-haves posts and lists that I would find online. I needed to know all of the things! And what stuff I simply must have! You can probably get away with very few things with a newborn (a set of … Continue reading Newborn baby stuff – The List!
So after my last rant whinging about pregnancy, I thought I'd lighten the mood and talk about some of the best bits about becoming a Mum. I feel like before you have kids you often only hear about all the hard stuff which comes with having kids. Going through child birth, lack of sleep, no … Continue reading Mumlife – the best bits
Alternative titles include: "Pregnancy - reasons why I'm never doing this again" and “Acid Reflux – you heartless wench” So I have to start by saying that I have been super lucky to have had a complication free pregnancy so far and also to have fallen pregnant so easily this time around. I know heaps … Continue reading Pregnancy – second time around – 30 weeks
Dear Milla Today you are 18 months old! It seriously feels like yesterday that we had your first birthday party. I guess we have hit a bit of a groove now and time is flying. We're closer than ever especially now that we are communicating more. You come and cuddle up next to me on … Continue reading Milla is 18 months old!
