So tonight was THE night. Adeline is going into her own big girls room. She is turning 7 months next week and myself and Thom know it’s gotta’ be done. We both actually haven’t wanted to put her in her own room yet. Especially Thom, which surprised me! I’ve had the attitude that I know we have to do it and now she’s managing to … Continue reading Big girls room!
I haven’t even been able to bring myself to write this, I’m finding it quite hard to share my feelings, or even put my feelings into a sentence, but I think like most things it’s good to share how you are feeling and hopefully it will be therapy for me and maybe even reach someone else who feels the same or have experienced the same. … Continue reading A change to the norm
I was laid holding Adeline’s hand this afternoon whilst putting her down for a nap, once she had fallen asleep I just found myself staring at her (we all do it, I’m not a creep).

But I did it, I left baby A for 3 days which actually felt like so much longer! I missed her so much, every part of me ached for her. I never thought it would hit me as bad as it did. I mean … Continue reading My weekend away from Baby A

You are the funniest, cutest and most beautiful little girl, to me you’re the best! I am so lucky to have all this time off with you to … Continue reading A letter to my Daughter…
Well another holiday success with Baby A! This time with both set of parents (mine and Thom’s) and Bonnie lady (our dog)! I’m not gonna’ lie I was quite nervous. Now you’re thinking I’m talking about Adeline, maybe Bonnie? Nope.. without going into too much detail, I didn’t know how it was going to be in terms of it being ‘full on’ with Adeline and … Continue reading A weekend by the sea.
