Once upon a time...
I've written in the past about struggles we've had with Grace's sleeping. She was never really terrible but we have definitely struggled more times than not. It seems like now though she is on a whole other level. Due to a couple of illnesses only a month apart we got into a bad habit of … Continue reading Sleep training- when does it get better!?
As a mum I, like the majority of others, have been struggling with months and months of sleep deprivation...and the ghastly eye bags that come with it! I've been searching high and low for the perfect concealer to cover them up, and until recently had no luck. Nope, nothing was hiding those bad boys. Until … Continue reading Saying good-bye to those eye bags
And just like that, our baby girl turned 1 year old on the 29th April. The day before I had been feeling quite emotional, as that had marked a year since I went into hospital and was induced. It was such mixed feelings, obviously happy given that I now know the outcome, but also I … Continue reading Grace turns 1
After months of umm'ing and ahh'ing I have decided to give slimming world a try, seeing as I haven't been having much luck on my weight loss journey (I.e nothing has changed!) What made me most nervous initially was being weighed... I never weigh myself as it does genuinely make me upset, and tend to … Continue reading Slimming world…so it begins!
I realise I haven't written a post in a while but in all honesty i've felt so tired of late, by the time the working day is done and Grace is in bed and dinner is over, i'm flat out on the sofa and completely switched off. There also hasn't been an awful lot going … Continue reading 10 months and beyond
Today marked my first official Mothers Day, as last year I was still pregnant with Grace. Although I don't need a particular day to remind me about being a mother or to celebrate it, it's still so lovely to take a step back and feel the love and appreciation, and I love seeing all the … Continue reading My First Mothers Day
So we are now in March, I haven't lost any weight (in fact, I've probably gained some) and I'm starting to feel like I'm in a bit of a slump again. The recent bout of cold weather sent me into hibernation mode and I resorted back to snacking and bad food to get by. I … Continue reading The Winter Blues
Oh.my.god. Just when we think we've got the bedtime routine down to a T, Grace decides that "actually no you guys are getting too comfortable, I'm going to crank it up a gear" and then all hell breaks loose. Why why WHY does this happen??? We made a breakthrough, she went down on her own … Continue reading Sleep regression….why?!?!
We've been weaning Grace for nearly 5 months now and it started off really well. She has taken to food well and transitioned comfortably from boob to bottle at a really good place. However, now that she is 9 months old I am starting to have concerns over what she is eating. She's still into … Continue reading Weaning worries
We love to have little getaways as a family, it keeps us from just sitting around doing nothing stuck in the same routine alllll the time and keeps Grace stimulated seeing and doing different things. This time it was a trip down to Plymouth so Justin could watch his beloved Football team play away … Continue reading A weekend in Plymouth
