It’s been almost 3 months since Matthews birthday, but I’m finally getting around to doing a blog post on his birthday. Initially I wasn’t so keen on doing a theme for Matthews first birthday. But as the time got closer and I started seeing cool things on Pinterest (you can see my inspiration board here), … Read more

I had an impromptu photoshoot with Matthew a couple of weeks back. While he was having a bath, which we do in the evenings as part of the bed time routine, I took my camera in and snapped a few photos – it’s ok, theres no ‘rude’ parts ;). Matthew loves the bath, loves playing … Read more

Tooth number 5 is well and truly through now. It cut on the 16th Jan, and looking into Matthews mouth (while he was asleep of course, no other way to get in there) I thought, tooth number 6 can’t be far away, it’s sitting right there. Still hasn’t cut, and I’m pretty sure has been … Read more

One of the Facebook groups I’m on had a discussion about things to do with your baby. Someone mentioned about colouring some pasta so I gave this a go. I cooked some spaghetti and then dyed it green.

I’ve discovered why you start losing your hair from about 12 weeks post-partum, it’s not entirely the hormones fault, it’s the little monster that has figured out how to grab and tug at everything and anything, and loves long hair! Which is the sole reason I don’t have any form of style cut at the … Read more
