HELPING IRIS TO BECOME A GENTLE BIG SISTER | MY FIRST BABY ANNABELL


I still find it strange my tiny, little, dinky dot of a Daughter is going to become a big Sister in December. It's crazy. She's already obsessed with babies so introducing her to a doll is to help encourage her to be gentle. She's pretty good but i'm hoping I can get her to stop accidentally poking eyes when she points out body parts.

BLUESTONE - WALES | TRAVEL DIARY PART TWO


Half way through the week at Bluestone I was reflecting on everything. Cliche? weird? I don't know but I was thinking about the fact this time next year we'll have a 6/7 month old, we'll be a family of five and also how for someone who had not thought they'd enjoy a holiday in the UK, I was wrong. The kids faces we're perfect, constant smiles, the things they were learning, the things they were loving and to be honest, Iris especially, was just loving that once again Mummy and Daddy were together instead of one being at work or asleep. 

Being working parents, Brad and I having to work opposite shifts, meaning that basically everyday of the week one of us is asleep, one of us is always exhausted and that means our spontaneous family walks, trips to the park or days out are not just limited, they're practically non existent at the moment. So mini breaks like these are so important. Of course things are changing, maternity leave is there in the distance, but until then a mini break like this was really, really important for us and something we don't take for granted.

A LETTER TO BRAD | YOUR LAST FATHER'S DAY AS A DADDY OF TWO


Brad,

How are we under six months away from having a third chid? I can't believe it, I know you can't either. It's crazy really. You've been a Daddy for four years, four father's days and so much has changed in that time. You've grown as a person and Dad and well, you've even become my husband!

BLUESTONE - WALES | TRAVEL DIARY PART ONE


Arriving at bluestone after eight hours of travelling was exhausting and so exciting. We took a train from Bitterne to Southampton central, Soton central to Cardiff and then Cardiff to Narberth. We then waited 30 minutes for a taxi and finally arrived at bluestone around 8pm! 
We were kindly allowed to be taken to our lodge by the taxi, we arrived at number 23 Carn menyn, a beautiful green log cabin called a "Ramsey Lodge" an upside down house and it instantly felt homely. 

DUBROVNIK - CROATIA | TRAVEL DIARY WITH TWO UNDER FOUR (PART TWO)


As promised, here is part two from our amazing trip to Croatia in April. Apologises for how long it has taken. We had the best time and I was so happy to have had the best trip where we made the best memories. The last two full days weren't overly busy but we still felt like we had done loads and didn't miss a thing. We loved the old town a lot and it was somewhere I will never forget, it was beautiful. It was full of the most beautiful architecture and orange trees and contains so much history. 

FIRST TRIMESTER PREGNANCY UPDATE | DEAR BABY NUMBER 3



Dear baby number 3,

I still am in disbelief that I am writing this but documenting what is about 90% going to be my last ever pregnancy is something I want to keep documented and special. I still can't believe how much you surprised us. We'd wanted baby number 3 at some point in the future but had decided to wait but you had decided now was the right time and for that i'm so grateful.
