MY FIRST SOLO SCHOOL RUN | OUR CANDID DAYS #2


The school run! The dreaded school run, we all hate it but someone has to do it. Now don’t get me wrong, I’m VERY lucky and Brad does the morning school run on the days he’s working and I’ll do the pick up and on the days he’s off he usually does them. This is down to Iris, she can be a little bit of a demon when she gets tired and two school runs makes her VERY grumpy. 

WHEN YOU'RE DISNEY MAD & YOUR DRESS NEED TO MATCH YOUR EARS!


Having a Disney mad Daughter is wonderful! Of course over the past two years of her life we've drummed Disney into her, as we did Lucas. They're absolutely encouraged to decide which films, characters and programmes are their favourite and if they didn't like Disney, we'd absolutely not force it upon them but with two Disney lovers for parents - it was pretty obvious they'd be obsessed too. 

RUFUS' FIRST ADVENTURE | OUR CANDID DAYS #1


Last year, I started a "our candid days" section on my blog and failed miserably due to pregnancy.
So, in true "new year, new me" fashion, I am starting it again. Last time it was very much a linky for everyone to join in but now, it's just a blog my day style, weekly, feature for us to capture our days together.
And, what better way is there to kick start the year then with Rufus' first walk down by the river with his big siblings. He's been out to weigh in's, for coffee dates and Christmas shopping but he hasn't been for a nice adventure yet. Everyone loves a new years day walk, so we decided to do the same.

RUFUS' BIRTH STORY


I can't believe that I didn't get to complete my 39 week update. On Saturday December 1st 2018 at 39+1 weeks pregnant, my tiny, beautiful surprise gender baby came storming into the world and stole my heart 1000000% and I couldn't be happier to have him finally in my arms.
My labour was quick and absolutely perfect and for my final ever birth I literally couldn't be more overjoyed by how well it went. SO, this is my birth story.

WELCOME TO THE WORLD RUFUS LENNON | THE STORY OF YOUR NAME


Naming a baby is something Brad and I have always spent a lot of time going over and over. We've both got different ideas for names and different tastes. I like old fashioned names and quirky names and Brad, well he's just fussy and doesn't like much at all.
Naming a third baby was difficult, we have used names we liked and weirdly the names Lucas or Iris would have had if they were the opposite gender, just don't feel like names we'd use now. Lucas would have been Ella and Iris would have been Arlo. I cannot imagine myself with and Arlo or an Ella now.

A BUSY DADS GROOMING CHRISTMAS GIFT GUIDE | AD

*This is a sponsored post, all words and images are my own*


Shopping for men can be really difficult and choosing something they really want and need can be difficult. Brad takes a lot of pride in his hair and his beard and last year he requested I got him some grooming bits and pieces for Christmas. I thought i'd put together a little grooming gift guide to help you with some ideas for Christmas too.
