So another month has flown by and our smallest is now 13 months and slowly moving even further away from being my baby and turning into a proper little girl! This month she has loved Hannah being home for the school holidays - much to Han's frustration! She loves following her around, stealing her food … Continue reading Ruby’s 13 Month Update!
Dear Ruby, We made it to one! A rather large achievement on my part since I have managed to keep two children fed and watered for a year (7 in total) when I can't even keep a house plant alive for a week! When you came into the world exactly a year ago today, I … Continue reading A Letter To Ruby On Her First Birthday
As Ruby fast approaches her first birthday, I have been reminiscing about the first few months with her. She was never a particularly happy newborn, she had reflux and she cried A LOT. She didn't like to nap in the day (she still doesn't) and was happier on one of us than being put down. … Continue reading Our Essentials For The First Year.
I'm not sure where the last month has gone! Since I have been back at work life seems to be passing in a blink of an eye.

My parents … Continue reading Why I Won’t Sugar Coat Terrorism

It only feels like yesterday we were bringing her home from the hospital and enduring those horrible long sleepless nights, the ones where you try and be grateful that you have a healthy baby, but cant help but feel angry that … Continue reading Ruby is 10 Months old!
School Holidays are always so difficult to find cheap or free things to do when you have kids. Everywhere is so busy and everything is so expensive its easy to choose to stay close to home but with the baby it would of been hell. It was also nice weather (we even managed to bust … Continue reading Easter Holidays – What We Did
So every few weeks I do a bulk cook and put in tubs in the freezer for the baby. We use these on days when we are having something she can't have or we are eating later and there isn't anything for her to have to hand. I like to know that there are healthy … Continue reading Baby Food Cook-athon!
Soooooo the baby is sleeping...ALL NIGHT....and I cant help it I want to shout from the roof tops! All those people who I fantasied about punching in the face when the so much as mumbled the words 'Oh my darling Jemima slept through from Birth' or 'Archibald never slept through until he was 14, its … Continue reading Sleeping Through!!!
Hi Everyone, I have been thinking for a while about starting a blog but where to start? I spoke to a lovely friend of mine (our babies are birthday buddies) and she suggested I start here...so here I am. (She is 'themummystylist' in case your wondering!)
