Afternoon! Lil Pudding is halfway through her 5th month and I think we have a diva on our hands! She’s wants to be held 90% of the time but the upside is that she is such a snuggle bum😍 This is why babywearing comes in handy for those times her majesty needs me to cuddle … Continue reading Babywearing Like A Boss – The Lalabu Baby Shirt
Morning! As I write this post, I’m also sitting on a plane headed to Berlin. It’s the hubs’ birthday today (June 14th) and we’re snatching a few days away sans kidlets. My shirt feels uncomfortable now, as it’s also over 5 hours since I last fed my Lil Pudding before we left for the airport … Continue reading Got Milk? – Freezer Stash 101
Morning! Lil Pudding is now 16 weeks old - where did that time go please? Between getting over colic, longer stints of sleep, growth spurts, beaming smiles and reflux, Pud is thriving wonderfully. We took her to get weighed today and she’s a lil chunky chunk at just over 14lbs! But but but...with all that … Continue reading Fits Like A (Gummee) Glove!
Morning! Our Lil Pudding is 3 months old! We have officially past the Newborn 4th trimester stage and now it’s time for more fun, alertness and everything else that comes with a 3-6 month old baby. Unlike Lil Dumpling, her older brother, Pud loves to sleep - she’s been doing up to 7 hour stints … Continue reading First Aid? Nope – Tummy Time!
Morning! We’ve reached 37 Weeks today! By ‘we’ I mean myself and our Lil Pudding, who has reached full term. Although, we are not quite due yet! Having reached this milestone in my second pregnancy, I’m now turning my attention to packing my hospital bag. Just some of the things I’ve got to fit in … Continue reading 37 Weeks Today – Time To Pack THE Bag!
Happy New Year! I still remember when it was 31st December 1999, around 11:30pm and everyone was listening to Prince’s (RIP) 1999 waiting for the Millennium to ring in. I don’t feel as though 18 years have passed since then! They do say time waits for no man and since having our Lil Dumpling in … Continue reading 2018…The Year of Change Pt.1 – Maternity Leave!
So we made it to Barbados on Tuesday after an 8h30m flight. I’m glad and pleasantly surprised to report that our lil Dumpling handled his first flight very, very well! Our flight was at 11:25am so we had to wake him up at 6am to get ready to leave for the airport - that … Continue reading Dumpling’s First Flight – Pt.2
As you’re reading this, we’re at Gatwick Airport, embarking on our first ever Holiday as a family, with Dumpling! (Unless you count the time he came with us to Prague last year in my belly, but don’t think that counts to be honest!) Both hubs and I are both nervous about how Dumpling is going … Continue reading Dumpling’s First Flight – Pt.1

Before I had my little dumpling, I swore blind I'd never be that mum watching In The Night Garden with my kidlet. I just thought it was a complete and utter nonsense. There was nothing about a Flying blimp called a Pinky Ponk or a blue sailor called Iggle Piggle that appealed to me. Even … Continue reading Dumpling In The Night Garden, Live!
