Big boy bed ๐Ÿ’™

Itโ€™s been a long time coming but itโ€™s finally in place ๐Ÿ™Œ๐Ÿผ Heโ€™s waited 2 years and 9 months for this moment but heโ€™s always been such a good sleeper we didnโ€™t want to ruin it ๐Ÿ™ˆ but heโ€™s all tucked up fast asleep and not fazed at all ๐Ÿ™Œ๐Ÿผ #thatsmyboy ๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿผ

In this big old world we live in, we all have our own little world. Here is mine. Him, me & the all-important little person we created. Stopping before I start writing a giant story but... everyday Iโ€™m reminded not to take anything for granted. Thankful & grateful (and always in need of hot caffeinated beverages). Ps. I really like how Anushka is pointing at herself as if to say โ€œthis photo is all about meโ€. Sheโ€™s right.

Happy Bank Holiday weekend! We spent the day thinking it was going to rain, but enjoying the sunshine! What is going on with the weather?! ๐ŸŒž I thought our weekend would be dominated by sleep training, but Violet's taken to it like a duck to water and been so good and how we have an evening to ourselves! Long may it last ๐Ÿ‘Œ๐Ÿป๐Ÿ‘Œ๐Ÿป๐Ÿ‘Œ๐Ÿป hope you've had a lovely day whatever you've been up to ๐Ÿ’•

How do children learn? From the moment they are born they copy and mimic what we do, and we model what they should do, taking their part in conversations, teaching them speech patterns, and teaching them how to care and love, and treat tiny people, and then they ask you to help them carry their doll and your heart just melts.

The first time I laid eyes on you. Perfect. So big for being 35 weeks. Beautiful. The most amazing thing Iโ€™d ever done with my life since your sister.
Iโ€™m so glad God chose me to carry you, to fight sickness and a blood clot for you, to labor 17 hours with you, to deliver you, to be your mama forever. โค๏ธ

Well today was a little bit hot!

Yesterday this beautiful little girlie was sent home from nursery, for the first time ever! I mean she has been ill before, but she was so desperate to go, and after an hour or so I had to pick her up. :( She was so upset leaving her brother there, as was he. Poor little monkeys. But sometimes a lazy day is all you need, and she seems right as rain now, thankfully. Just in time for half term!

These cousins are the cutest.max and Charlie are the most boisterous boys ever and Bella is just as much one of the boys.so funny to walk behind then listening to them whitter their little stories ๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜‚

Happy first birthday, our sweet Lillian-James! You have been such a blessing in our lives; sassy since the day you were born (pulling out your feeding tube and IV multiple times, making it known when you were unhappy or just needed a cuddle), funny, strong-willed (no idea where you get that), and the sweetest little thing.
You are so loved. โค๏ธ

The @radissonblumogan didnโ€™t disappoint. What a great week weโ€™ve had. This was our second stay here - not something weโ€™ve done before. Visiting a place you already know definitely has its advantages. It takes the stress out of booking as you know youโ€™re going some you like. You know where everything is and what you need to take with you vs what is provided. The only downside I can think of is that a repeat trip loses the excitement a little as youโ€™ve already discovered everything (especially if your trips are only 7 months apart).
โ˜€๏ธ
How about you? Do you keep visiting your favourite spot or do you like to mix it up?

Never been afraid of a bit of daytime sparkle โœจ Nabbed this top up at a friendโ€™s house when helping her clear out her wardrobe (thanks again @everydaylikethefirstday!)... sometimes one womanโ€™s rejects are another womanโ€™s treasure ๐Ÿ˜ Very important task at hand today as weโ€™re off to buy a scooter as Ellโ€™s (late) birthday present. Apparently it HAS to be yellow - please donโ€™t let us down @bluewatershopping! ๐Ÿคž
P.S. How dead is my plant?!

~Middle Child~
Oliver turns 7 this year and the time has just flown by! When he was born he was often referred as "Spider Monkey" because of his long arms and legs. As he grew older his nickname became more apparent as he used to wrap his legs around whenever he had a cuddle. .
.
He is my middle child, the child who's favourite colour is Pink, he loves monkey's and his favourite past time is bug hunting! .

Do you remember those sunny days when you were young, getting on your bicycle to meet your friends, buying your Fat Frog Ice Lolly on route and cycling to the pier, where you would sit, share stories, laugh and giggle about silly things. When you got too hot we would just jump in to cool off and then back out to lie soaking up rays as though we were in the tropics.
.
Those were the very best of days, I remember them so fondly. Itโ€™s those days that I now tell our children all about. I know it would mean all of our online community would suffer, not able to be connected and basically stepping back into the dark ages away from all of the things that are now very much part of our lives, but in some ways I wish we were back there with no smartphones, no iPads, and living a much more simple yet richer life.

Such a lovely spontaneous evening out with my partner-in-crime @fourlittlefeetandme yesterday. Gin in a can, public transport and blister plasters galore, thereโ€™s no-one else Iโ€™d rather gad around one of our favourite stomping grounds, St.Andrews, with. ๐Ÿ‘ญ I just wish weโ€™d had longer, next time I may just forgo the heels and wear the flats that are tucked inside my Bayswater though ๐Ÿ˜‰๐Ÿคฃ

I'm so sad not to be waking up in France! We had the best time, and I'm already desperate to go back! On one of the days we visited Pont du Gard, which is an ancient Roman aqueduct, it was such an amazing day out.

B a n k H o l i d a y W e e k e n d ! I am so glad to finally make it to the bank holiday weekend and May school holiday. This term has been such a tough one with my big girl taking her SATs, me out of the picture for 2 weeks with tonsillitis, and the little one struggling with hearing loss. We'll probably do something nice on Monday, but for today, I just want to chill out and take some time to just BE...

Having a family of my own was something I always wished for. Now I have the perfect little family and I couldnโ€™t be more proud! We are going to enjoy our new garden today and it will be a challenge to keep him out of the sun. Because of the chickenpox I canโ€™t put much sunscreen on him... Oh well it will keep me alert today ๐Ÿ˜‰

Throwback to last summer with Frances modelling a vintage floral Sunbonnet. I can't believe how much has changed! I don't think she's quite prepared that a little brother is on the way! ๐Ÿ˜„

It may not be as sunny as last weekend but I hope you have a good one. Thanks to everyone for tagging your bonnet pics, it's so lovely to see and I'll be sharing them throughout my maternity leave. ๐Ÿ’•

Good morning and happy start of bank holiday and half term! ๐ŸŽ‰ Hope you all have loads of lovely things planned. I have a few child free hours today so Iโ€™m going to be (finally) sorting my GDPR privacy policy (no YOU left it to the last minute) and getting some orders done then hopefully Iโ€™ll have some time to read in the sunshine for a bit. Letโ€™s go!

Exactly one year ago at just about this time, the midwife on call looked at me and condescendingly asked why she should keep me overnight if I didnโ€™t want pain medication for my labor.
The nurse was floored. I was shocked. My mom was about to cut her. I said through clenched teeth, with silent tears streaming down my face as wave after wave of contraction came, โ€œBecause Iโ€™m not about to have a baby 35 weeks at home.โ€
So she admitted me, after the wonderful nurse fought for me and my mom may have threatened her.
I labored all night. Rob was by my side through it all. Just like this: lovingly, tenderly, holding me up when I couldnโ€™t take anymore. Tomorrow our baby will turn one. And tonight I am thankful that I have this photo to look back on and remember the peace my husband brings me when life is spinning chaotically out of control, and the immense sovereignty of our God who knew exactly what He was doing when He decided that Lily-James would be born a month early. His handiwork throughout it all has been beautiful and a testament to His faithfulness even when we are faithless. โค๏ธ

It's been a while since I've posted on Insta for various reasons, including phone related issues...but I'm back! ๐Ÿ˜€ I'm loving this shot of Autumn I took a couple of weeks ago.

I don't know if the sky is falling but I'm finally getting around to going on that girlfriends' getaway I've been hypothetically going on for 10 years๐Ÿ™Œ Why does packing for 2 days seem harder than for a week & why do us Moms put off a #momventure for so long? I'm sure it has something to do with this smidge of guilt that had me fill my fridge with every item of junk food from the grocery store today ;) Props to Daddy who's holding it down while this gal restores before the madness that is the month of June hits. Happy weekend all! What's on your horizon? XO
