My secret to 2 under 2

So last week, my oldest monkey turned 2. I won’t talk about how I feel about it all in this post, as that’s an essay in itself! But, I officially no longer have 2 little monkeys under 2. My biggest little boy turning 2 has made me reflect on the last few months. I’ve talked…

Happy 2nd birthday to my biggest, littlest man.. 

And just like that.. my little monkey is 2 today 🎉🎉🎉.  This second year has gone crazily quick and I can’t believe what a funny, kind, smart and happy little boy he has become.. and did I say funny? He is such a little character and makes all of our lives happier. I love how…

Outfit of the week.. 

Soo last week I slipped up and didn’t do an outfit post.. blame the two mini men in my life, so hard to catch a break and even harder to get anybody to take a photo for you when you spend the majority of your time with two little people!  But this week I’m back…

Product Review- The Bugaboo Bee⁵

As many of you are aware from my recent posts, for the last few months we have been road testing the new Bugaboo Bee⁵. It’s been a crazy and exciting few months where we’ve welcomed the birth of our second baby boy, alongside my oldest monkey finally getting to grips with walking and not wanting to…

Afternoon Tea at the Edgbaston 

Last week, myself and some Mummy friends (and two bumps) treated ourselves to a girly catch-up and afternoon tea. For most this meant a nice baby free afternoon, but I took my littlest munchkin along for the ride (he will get used to being dragged around with Mummy I’m sure). My monkey was off at…

 Surviving with a newborn and a toddler… one month on

I still can’t get my head around the fact that I’m a mum to two little humans, and I can’t believe we have survived a month already. Suprisingly I am coping pretty well with a 20 month old and a newborn and here is how… Going to bed early! As a first time mum everyone…

Choosing baby names…

Having a name that NOBODY can pronounce was a nuisance growing up. Especially when your name can be mispronounced as ‘Salmon’, which is what I was unfortunately called for the first 16 years of my life.  This went on until I got to sixth form and decided I was fed up of being known by…

Our first outing with a newborn & toddler 

Having spent two weeks cooped up indoors since my little munchkin arrived, I’ve been feeling increasingly sorry for my biggest boy, who is getting more and more bored at home on the days he is not at nursery. Don’t get me wrong he still gets the majority of my attention, apart from when I’m feeding…

Our first impressions of the Bugaboo Bee 5

I’m a big fan of my current travel system, the Bugaboo Cameleon 3 (read my review here) and was therefore delighted that me, my monkey (and bump) have been lucky enough to road test the new Bugaboo Bee 5. And this is what we think so far… It’s super light weight.. and I mean super, super light weight….

39 week bumpdate..

Okay, so by now I really really thought baby would have made an appearance! Don’t listen to people who tell you second babies come earlier, it’s nonsense!  I’m so eager to meet my baby and have them here with us now.. I’m anxious about the labour and want it out of the way, plus it’s…

My birth plan

This time around I am so much more anxious about the labour. First time round your oblivious and you don’t know what to except, plus your also more excited. This time, although I had a smooth labour myself previously, I’ve heard everyone else’s birth stories, and some are terrifying. Once you join the ‘mum club’,…

That’s one small step for man.. one giant leap for our household..

Something I’ve not really written about (and it’s not been intentional I’ve just been too busy to update and write about everything I’ve wanted to in the last few months) is my little monkeys slow progress when it comes to walking.  I’m so fed up of hearing the words.. “is he walking yet”.. people ask…
