Sigi turns one next month (excuse me while I just go and sob in the corner), and I feel guilty as hell. Now, let me explain, for the last two years we've celebrated Frey's birthday's with big parties with family and friends, and that was my plan for Sigi but then lockdown happened, and even … Continue reading Planning A 1st Birthday in Lockdown
Yes, my baby girl is now 9 months old, we're steadily heading towards her first birthday. Which makes me want to beam with pride and ugly cry at the same time. So, Sigi is still a big, healthy, very strong baby. We were planning on doing baby-led weaning with her, but trying to do this … Continue reading Sigi’s 9 Month Update
With everything that's going on in the country at the moment, I can imagine I'm not the only one who is planning to stay in on Mother's Day. With this in my mind, I've been racking my brains with ideas on what to do and I've come up with a few ideas that I thought … Continue reading Things To Do if You’re Staying In This Mother’s Day.
So, this is going to be a bit different to my usual updates about Frey. You see there's a few things that I've never mentioned on here or on my social media about Frey which I need to explain. Just after Frey turned two, me and the hubby were getting really worried about Frey, his … Continue reading Frey’s 30 Month (2 1/2 Years) Update
Before I became a mum, meal planning and food budgeting were things that never really registered with me, and then I had Frey and I quickly realised how naive I had been. I can't believe how relaxed I used to be about our food shops and what we were going to have for dinner. There … Continue reading Meal Planning and Budgeting
I say this every time, and I'll say it again, I can't believe Sigi is six months old. Where is the time going? While I love how much she's developing, sometimes I just want time to stand still, just for a few moments and let me enjoy how small and wonderful she is right now. … Continue reading Sigi’s 6 Month Update
Sigi is almost 6 months old (how has that happened?!), Which means I'm also nearly six months postpartum so I thought I would do a bit of an update about how I'm doing. Physically, my C-section scar has healed very nicely. I do get the occasional twinges, especially if I've had to walk a long … Continue reading My (Almost) 6 Months Post C-Section Update.
There's pros and cons to everything you do as a parent and cloth nappies are no exception. With this in mind I decided to do my list of pros and cons for using reusable nappies. Pro: Environmentally Friendly. Definitely the most obvious pro, with disposable nappies taking anywhere between 200-500 years to biodegrade, you can … Continue reading Sustainable Living: Pros and Cons of Cloth Nappies.
This is the first in a series of posts I'm planning to do all about our journey with cloth nappies and reusable wipes, how we've been managing with them so far. When we had Frey I didn't even think to look at reusable nappies or wipes. The overwhelming feeling of being a first time mum … Continue reading Sustainable Living: Cloth Nappies, An Overview of Our Journey So Far.
That is the most infuriating question of all at the moment. So, lately, there have been problems with napping in our house. Frey has just turned 2 and hes at that phase where sometimes he just doesn't want to nap, and honestly, it's exhausting. He used to go down for a nap between 12-1 and … Continue reading To Nap or Not To Nap?
