I noticed cradle cap on Oscar’s head just a few weeks after he was born. It wasn’t very pleasant looking but after googling cradle cap images, I realized that his wasn’t that severe after all. Weeks went by that I didn’t actively try to get rid of it, but during bath time I would shampoo and rinse his […]Read More Tried & Tested – Coconut Oil for Cradle Cap.
My husband and I aren’t the kind of couple that shower each other with gifts for no reason. We’re the special occasions kind of couple – birthday’s, Christmas, Fathers Day and Mothers Day, that sort of thing. I would class giving birth, a special occasion too though! I had experienced quite a difficult pregnancy and as most of us know, giving […]Read More Push Presents – Just how popular are they?
I had this lovely idea recently that I would bring Olivia to my 28 week antenatal appointment. Her dad couldn’t get off work for it so it was the perfect opportunity to have a mummy/daughter afternoon and include her in even more of this pregnancy. She’s a typical girl – sweet and maternal and extremely […]Read More Note to self.
I didn’t know when I would be sitting down writing this post. Just a few weeks ago I couldn’t see and end to how miserable I was feeling. I would cry easily just out of pure frustration. There was a bad aura in our house because of it all and my husband was feeling crappy […]Read More My Hyperemesis Gravidarum Update
I’m delighted to announce that I am pregnant with our second child. Olivia is thrilled to be becoming a Big Sister as you can see by the photo.

Surprisingly […]Read More Pregnancy announcement & Hyperemesis Gravidarum

I always felt that it would help with her independence for when she grew up. (I have no scientific proof of that but I felt she may be […]Read More Accidental Co- Sleepers
For those of you wondering who Rua is, he’s our fairy, I mean, he’s our daughters fairy. Rua lives beyond the fairy door in O’s bedroom and he first came to her attention late last year. She was very interested in him and how he would interact with her. She was only two and a half […]Read More Rua has been absent for a while…
When it comes to giving birth, every woman’s experience is different and there’s plenty of people out there that would scare the bejaysus out of you when it comes to telling their birth stories, but being induced into labour is pretty much the same feeling for every woman (I think). It’s not natural and it’s […]Read More Labor Induction – My experience.
Kids love stories whether you tell them one or read to them, they listen so attentively and get totally engrossed in what you’re saying. I love looking at Olivia’s expressions when I read to her, her little mind fixated on the pictures as I read every word aloud. It’s one of those things that you never grow […]Read More A few of our favourite story books.
