Dear Little Lady, It’s your 2nd birthday! Oh it’s gone so fast. I feel like I’ve blinked and you’re 2. Two years ago I was meeting you and your sister for the first time. You looked so tiny in your incubator, there was barely any part of you that didn’t have some sort of wire attached to you. Right at that moment when I stroked your tiny hand I knew you were a fighter, a true warrior and you have proved me right. Your first year was all about getting you better, making sure you survived your early delivery but… View Post

Little Lady has got to the Miss Independent stage, even things she still needs a bit of help with she refuses the help. She wants to show everyone how good she is at everything especially when it comes to eating. Part of the fun of the first year or so of children eating solids is the mess!

Little Man loves reading and has felt a huge sense of pride being able… View Post

If you’re like me then you will have already taken thousands of photos of the kids this summer and the holidays are only just about to start. There is the obligatory paddling pool photo, the water fight photo, the first time they dipped their toes in the sea photo. There are just so many photos opportunities in the summer, I love it. What do you do with your photos then though? I always think I should get them printed but never get round to it and apart from the odd few for the mantelpiece they all tend to just sit… View Post
