Tell me busy Mamas, what are some quick and easy HEALTHY snacks for me to have throughout the day? The amount of biscuits and chocolate I eat is borderline ridiculous!! 🙈 I can’t use the breast feeding excuse anymore as I stopped 6 months ago 🤣 so I really need to start eating better!

HAPPY CHEWSDAY this little love giving our mint fox Teether a good chew! Our foxes are currently sold out except for pink but don’t worry they will be back in a couple of weeks 👌🏼#thankgoodness .
I had to share some more photos from this shoot I did because seriously- check that pose haha!
Arlo had his 4 month needles today- apparently I blinked and 4 months passed! Our little man is such a happy little charmer and loves everyone he meets! He brings us so much joy and has fit into our family perfectly 💞
Today you start school and we honestly can’t believe it,
You’ve grown up before our eyes, you are so kind, gentle and have the most beautiful spirit.
You make us proud everyday with everything you’ve achieved,
At only four and a half we find it hard to believe,
That you’re already so clever, beautiful and bright,
And I know that you will take this all in your stride, and that everything will be alright.
It’s such a big step in your little life, the first proper milestone,
We are so unbelievably proud of you Lilly, we can’t believe how quickly you’ve grown.
We wish that you would slow down, so that we can breathe this all in,
I know that when you line up for your first day at school, my tears will be falling.
Well done my darling, you are so wonderful,
Continue to always be you, kind, gentle and so beautiful.
Wishing you all the luck in your first day of school, just think of us, and we will be there with you. ⭐️ Lilly’s first day at school ⭐️
meet Kiki-Cat. just before the holidays i went to collect Henry from school and she was waiting, in a cardboard box, for us to take her home. she’d suddenly appeared in the class room and Henry had taken a shine to her, and must’ve told his teacher we could take her. how could i refuse? luckily she’s cute. and, of course, the boys love her.
This time last year I was sat balancing a tea on my bump and this year I'm barely getting time to have a cup of tea. I wouldn't change it for the world though. Looking back at these photo I can't quite believe I had a life before Amelia. A life without Amelia in it. I can't quite believe she ever fit in there either!
We are in the final countdown to Amelia's first birthday on Monday and I'm in the throws of sorting her birthday gathering on Sunday. I am finding myself looking at photos from last year when I was heavily pregnant days before my induction and those early days with Amelia. It feels like a lifetime ago that I was pregnant but then I look at Amelia and I can't believe she is going to be one. Her first year has flown by and I am just so proud of the confident, funny, loving, happy little girl she has become and although I am sad that she is not a baby anymore.. I am so excited to see her grow and develop more.
I recently stumbled across this quote and fell a little bit in love:
"Do not ask your children
to strive for extraordinary lives.
Such striving may seem admirable,
but it is the way of foolishness.
Help them instead to find the wonder
and the marvel of an ordinary life.
Show them the joy of tasting
tomatoes, apples and pears.
Show them how to cry
when pets and people die.
Show them the infinite pleasure
in the touch of a hand.
And make the ordinary come alive for them.
The extraordinary will take care of itself."
7 months today and we're prepping for the crawl over here. She can shuffle backwards but hasn't worked out how to move forward yet. Only a matter of time but eek, I'm so not ready!! I mean, what am I gonna do about all those pot plants I already see her eyeing up??!! #7monthsold#theplantdestroyer#timetobabyproof
This girl is obsessed with dogs and flowers. She will spot the a mile away, shake her hands, arms and legs in excitement and isn't happy until we have gone and stroked, said hello or sniffed the flowers. This was a couple of weekends ago at my best friends wedding where I was bridesmaid and she was a flower girl. She was obsessed with touching and smelling my bouquet 🌼
