I’ve been loving writing these posts and so here is week three, a day late as yesterday I wrote a special post for mine and Dan’s anniversary instead. I would really recommend everyone to reflect back on the week and try to think of things that have made you happy, it really does make you so grateful for what you have in life. I can’t think of much more to waffle on about right now so I’m just going to jump right in.

1. An Autumnal day out at Paultons Park with our Mummy and baby friends. We went on some of the bigger rides that we hadn’t realised we could take the little ones on and Darcie absolutely loved them. She’s such an adrenaline junkie and was saying ‘weeee weeeee’ the whole way around, such a shame it closes the end of this week for the winter! But she’ll be even older to enjoy it even more when it reopens again. Continue reading “10 Things That Have Made Me Happy This Week 22.10.17”

The New Forest Fairy Festival

Last Saturday we paid a visit to The New Forest Fairy Festival in Burley. We’d taken Darcie last year when she was four months old when she was too young to really appreciate what was going on but the excitement of having a baby girl to take to a fairy festival was too strong for me to resist! This year however she was able to enjoy the day a lot more. As she is now walking, she just loves having space to roam and explore and all the bright colours and music at the festival were an added bonus too. Continue reading “The New Forest Fairy Festival”

Slow Down, Baby Girl

You are only nearly nine months old and yet already I have a bittersweet taste of your growing up. You are growing in independence and confidence each day which is so amazing and exactly what I wanted for you but I can’t help but long for the newborn bundle who needed me so strongly. I carried you with me for 9 months and now you sleep in your own room at night. I nursed you for 6 months and now you love to tuck into cheesy spaghetti and juicy tomatoes.

Happy Mummy Happy Baby

One of my favourite sayings I have heard since being a Mum is “Happy Mummy Happy Baby”. For the first few months of Darcie’s life I couldn’t quite work this one out, in those first months your babies needs are so high and you are so drained in every way that the priority really is just getting through each day and still be smiling at the end of it. I think in those early days it was hard to imagine being able to ever put myself first again but now 8 months on I am finally finding a balance that works for me.
