The Start Of Growth Tests

I’ve mentioned in a previous post that P1 was due to have an appointment at the hospital regarding her growth. They’ve been tracking her height and weight at the child development center where she has her physiotherapy sessions for the past two years and they have noticed that her growth has slowed which is concerning. Well that appointment didn’t happen …

To My Princesses – Letter 7

To my Princesses, So today, now P2 is beyond three months I’m going to write monthly letters to each of you separately. I thought this way it will be more personal for the both of you – P1 on the 24th of each month and P2 on the 6th. So this letter is my last joint letter to you both. …

Green Pomelo – Minky Baby Pink Cloth Nappy Review

So there’s a positive line on the pregnancy test. You’re having a baby! Now it’s time to start getting excited and buying lots of bits for your new arrival. I bet the majority of you naturally thought about all the nappies you’d have to stock up on. The first ever disposable nappy was invented in 1948. A baby will use …

I’m Missing Out On Things

Look at the frown on that face!! P2 has become more reluctant to fall asleep in her bouncer or car seat. In fact she’s quite reluctant to fall asleep anywhere during the day. And when she eventually does, it’s for a quick half hour power nap… and that’s if we’re lucky! I don’t know if this is an age thing?! …

Touch Me

It’s so crazy how grown up P2 is becoming and so fast she’s doing it! In the past few days she’s really begun to touch things, hold things and bite things – uh oh! Don’t worry, she isn’t suffocating herself… Yesterday, she was absolutely fascinated by my OHs top. Staring intensely at it, trying to reach forwards to grab it. …

Pit Of My Stomach

I had a really horrible Mummy moment at 4am this morning. That really sick feeling something’s wrong. My precious baby girl was still asleep. This probably wouldn’t have worried me as she used to wake between 3-4am. But for the past few days she’s had a feed somewhere between 1-2am. I jumped up, not even knowing what the time was …

May Bank Holiday Fun In The Sun

We’ve had a lovely bank holiday Monday with my MiL! I even experienced my first half pint of alcohol (cider to be precise) since… Well about a year. I decided, half wouldn’t hurt especially as I’d just fed pher!! It’s not like I’m some sort of breastfeeding alcoholic. Although there is a part of me that is scared I’ll harm …

I Didn’t Invite You Aunt Flow?!

Aunt Flow decided to pay a visit. I’m not overly impressed at her unwelcome visits. This is the second visit I’ve had since P2s birth (not counting the 6 weeks I bled continuously). Don’t get me wrong a visit from AF means that I’m not pregnant and have working ovaries and womb – fantastic. However, I’m breastfeeding, exclusively so why …

Walkers Hoops & Crosses Review

I unexpectedly received a parcel in the post yesterday morning. Inside contained a monkey holding a packet of crisps. I’ve been chosen, along with many other parent bloggers, to review Walkers Hoops and Crosses crisps. Both the girls absolutely love the monkey. Not surprising really, it’s beautiful. As for the crisps; well we were sent the Roast Beef flavour. Which …

Boobie Milk

A few days ago I was convinced I had a problem with my milk supply. I was terrified! My boobs felt really empty, I wasn’t getting that “filling” feeling, and P2 was feeding more often and not really sleeping. Even more to my worry is that I’ve only been expressing about 2oz and that’s a total amount. Turns out, I …

To My Princesses – Letter 6

To my Princesses, I’m sorry I’m a little late in writing this. Wednesday, when you both celebrated your weekly milestones, we were very busy and by the time I got to bed it was just too late. This week has been great, we’ve had busy days and quiet days. P1 you have been in a normal routine with nursery and …

Good Morning. Just Some Sex Ed Here

Pornography!! Caught your attention for a Friday morning?! At school, being a girl who preferred the company of boys over girls, meant that porn was the topic of conversation for most lunch times. It disgusted me, the way they put these women on a pedestal and expected us “normal” girls to be exactly like that. Most of the boys probably …

OCD – It’s A Real Thing!

I think I have Obsessive Compulsive Disorder when it comes to my bed covers. In fact I know I do. I have absolutely no idea what started it, where it comes from, all I know is that if I see mattress, covers aren’t straight or the duvet is making its way out of the cover I get a horrible tightening …

What A State

It’s been a busy day. And a hot day! I must have looked a right idiot walking through town – I was wearing a black vest top, pink jeans and my black knitted winter boots!!! My pumps have basically fallen apart and my toenails are currently fashioned by P1s artistic nail painting, not sandal/flip flop friendly. P2 and me had …
