Happy 6 Month Birthday Felix! 

Happy 6 Month Birthday Felix! featured

My wonderful baby boy is 6 months old!!!! The last 6 months I’ve tried to be more baby-led than I was with Violet and Ezra. It wasn’t entirely through choice, as having 2 other young children means I cannot put Felix’s needs first all the time. I don’t have time to stick to a routine Read more

My baby is 3 months old! No longer a newborn and the 4th trimester is over. I’ve really embraced the 4th trimester with Felix in a way I don’t think I allowed myself to with Violet and Ezra. As difficult as those newborn days are, they have been precious and a privilege. I’ve not wished Read more

The End of Term

The End of Termfeatured

Today Violet has completed her first term at school. What a rollercoaster it’s been! She started in September excited but very nervous and it took her a little while to settle.

Unbelievably Felix is now 2 weeks old. Time has flown and I really cannot imagine life without him in it. He feels like the most special baby, I just adore him!

A Letter to Ezrafeatured

Dear Ezra Things are changing. Can you sense it? The house suddenly has all this baby stuff in it and Mummy and Daddy have been busily changing your bedroom around so you can share with Sissy. There’s bunk beds and soon you’ll be moved out of your cosy cot into a great big bed! We Read more

Preparing Violet for Schoolfeatured

I am now mum to a school aged child.  I find this really astounding that I have a child who goes to school!  It doesn’t seem that long ago that I was at school, but time flies and here we are! Over the summer Joe and I spent a lot of time carefully and gently Read more
