Month number 1…

It’s nearly the end of January and I should know as it’s my birthday tomorrow 🎉🎉 (27 years old and looking at least five years older after nearly 9 months of being a parent – ha ha!) But this post isn’t about my Birthday or turning a year older as I’m pretty bloody happy at…

Aldi Baby Event 

I love the Aldi baby events, they’re so good for pregnant ladies, new mum’s and mum’s with a little one. I’m sadly not a fan of the Aldi nappies myself after having two bad batches of sticky tabs, but I would be tempted to try them again. I however abosolutely love the nappy bags and…

Amelia apparel 

One of my favourite patterns is tartan. It’s perfect for cosy winter days and can be dressed up or down. Yesterday we took Amelia-Olive to her first trip to the cinema (LaLaLand 👌🏻) and for a little play with her nanny. I absolutely loved this outfit and because it’s dark (except the top) it hid…

Christmas with a baby

It’s January 3rd and over the holidays I’ve ate enough turkey to feed a small army, consumed my body weight in chocolate, taken the tree down and turned AO’s nursery in to Toys R’ Us.  Celebrating Amelia-Olive’s first Christmas was such a magical time and something I will always remember (even if she didn’t) My…

2016 milestones 💕

We’re not at the end of the year but I think we’ve reached all of the milestone cards this year that we are going to (although you never know with my daughter, she astounds me every day) Since 5th May 2016, we’ve had seven and a half months of milestone moments including eating solids, rolling…

Baby weaning 

This morning I’ve looking through baby meal idea books I got given for some new purée/finger food ideas and it’s all “make your own ketchup” this, “make your own fish fingers” that 🤔. I hardly have enough time to go to the toilet alone without A-O demanding my attention.  So today I’ve whipped up the…

Amelia Apparel

It’s definitely getting a lot colder now and I love seeing Amelia-Olive’s wardrobe change from pretty summer dresses to cuddly winter outfits. This is one of my current favourite AO outfits to keep warm on a cool Autumnal day. OOTD: AO’s headband  and leggings are from a small handmade business which you can find on…

Board games and babies 

At a recent party me and my best friend were discussing the contents of our Instagram posts.  “Mines full of board games” She said.  “And mines just photos of Amelia-Olive” I replied laughing.  Recently I’ve seen a lot of posts and articles about why we shouldn’t be posting photos of our babies on social media….

The extended maternity leave…

So now everyone knows and it’s official, I can now tell you I’m not going back to my job and I’m going to be a full time mummy to A-O. For as long as I can remember, I’ve always wanted a family. I’ve seen the eye roll I’ve got when I’ve said to people I…

Amelia-Olive’s first Halloween 

This weekend was Amelia-Olive’s first Halloween. Last year I was about 4 months pregnant and me and the hubby dreamt of having our little baby here in their first Halloween outfit. And here she is…our beautiful Amelia-Olive I’m not one but two Halloween outfits (thanks Uncle Dean) Although she is only six months she did…

No filter needed…

If you have me on Instagram you will see smiley happy photos of my daughter in perfect outfits.  If you have me on Facebook you will see a happy wife and mother enjoying life as a new mum. Now, of course this is true. I am the happiest I’ve been in my whole life and…

Holiday-ing with a newborn…

I’ve seen and heard of enough horror stories of taking a baby aboard (crying non stop on the plane, becoming ill in a non English speaking country and generally hating the heat) to know I wasn’t going to take Amelia-Olive on a holiday outside of the UK anytime soon. When she’s older we would love…
