Sebastian Turns One

My third son, my longest pregnancy, first induction, hardest and quickest labour, shortest hospital stay, quietest baby, best sleeper, and all around the most chilled, laid back, content baby I’ve had the privilege to raise for twelve months. I had so much fun preparing and celebrating his first birthday, and I can’t wait to celebrate… Continue reading Sebastian Turns One

September {round up}

Blogging is still taking a back seat, but I am happy to report that September was a much better month than August! I did get sick, again, and almost lost my voice, but other than that it was largely positive. One of my younger sisters visited for a little over a week, at the same… Continue reading September {round up}

July {round up}

I also made dinner – which doesn’t happen very often: pork, oregano and manchego cheese meatballs. It was AMAZING and definitely going into rotation. Wearing:… Continue reading July {round up}

It’s been lovely and relaxing for me to have him around so often. He went to work after almost two weeks off and I had completely forgotten what it… Continue reading June {Round up}

Stuff You Need For A Newborn

I’m 38 weeks as I type this, it’s the middle of summer, and I don’t have my baby ‘stuff’ organised yet. I’m not even talking nursery here – this bubba will get a couple drawers in the boys’ room and that’s about it. So being exhausted, completely disorganized, and not having much {any} extra room… Continue reading Stuff You Need For A Newborn

Hello November 

Midway through another month, and into the third trimester now – time for another round-up…. Wearing: A bunch of new maternity tees from Ripe, which I bought in grey, white and mint, my fave turquoise jeans, and just recently a pair of denim maternity shorts. They took forever to arrive, and they were a pretty… Continue reading Hello November
