Out for a country walk in the early days of my pregnancy I allowed myself to daydream about similar walks the following year, with our new family member in tow. I knew that babywearing would make this possible and was excited to explore our options. When I thought about carrying our baby, it was always… Continue reading Babywearing with Joy and Joe – Stretchy Wrap Review
Well the newborn days just fly don’t they. I know everyone says it and it’s a bit of a cliche but they just do. I think I must have taken over a thousand photos of Teddy in these first 7 weeks because I don’t want to forget a single thing. I’ve also been keeping lots… Continue reading Preserving Memories with Baby Art
Since finding out I was pregnant I was so excited at the prospect of joining in with the Me and Mine Project as a way of documenting our new lives as a family of three. Being due in January I liked the idea of starting a new project for the new year too. Our baby… Continue reading The Me and Mine Project – January
One whole month! I can hardly believe it. (I suspect I’m going to be saying that every month!) He’s already changed so much in this short space of time. We’re starting to find our feet and get to know each other, settling in our own little routine.

The new year brought with it the news of lots of engagements and it got me thinking about the excitement of planning our wedding. The first thing we did was to research venues as so many other things were dependent on this decision, from the date of the big day to the theme and food.
I can’t believe I’m actually writing this, but the builders have finally started the renovations on our home! If you’ve read any of my previous home posts, you’ll know that we’ve faced a lot of delays and false starts, so this really is exciting progress.
One whole week since you made your early arrival. Its true what they say, the time really does fly. One whole week of snuggling up at home getting to know you, although part of me feels like I’ve known you forever.
2018 was always set to be a big year, with our littlest family member due on the 3rd of January. With that huge milestone to look forward, I hadn’t really thought past those first few weeks of the new year. However since he made his arrival 8 days early, I’ve had a bit of time… Continue reading Actually 2018, I Do Have Some Goals…
