I think it’s pretty safe to say that flu season is officially here in my area. Basically everyone is ill to some extent and that unfortunately includes my household. Me and Kody along with Aaron and my mum have a horrid sore throat and chesty cough, my poor little boy sounds like he’s snoring when breathing 😢. Kody is asleep now so I can chill out in my pj’s on the sofa, all wrapped up in a blanket and with a Hot chocolate. I’m planning to go through my camera pictures and clear some memory space. What plans do you other mamas have tonight? Anyone else feeling poorly right now too?
There will come a time when you won’t remember reading your favourite book over and over again, when you won’t remember the way we play. One day you will forget all these precious moments we have shared but that doesn’t mean we shouldn’t do them as these are the moments I shall hold closest to my heart and the ones I will never forget. . I find it really sad that when Kody grows up he won’t remember all the things we’ve done whilst he’s this small! I’m just so glad I’ve managed to document a lot of them for us to look back on together. How do you other mamas keep memories for your children?
Me and Kody have had such a fantastic day out with @georgiaaxford and @jaydieannepomphrey it’s so nice that Kody has a friend a similar age to play with and little Piper is adorable, although a little too tiny to play today it won’t be long before she can join in! I basically had to bribe Kody with a carrot puff crisp from @organixfood To sit still for long enough to take a picture. 😂🙈Anyone else find it fascinating to watch how children play and interact together?
“I love my mummy” applies to both of us in this picture! Happy first Halloween beautiful boy 💙💙💙
Can’t believe my little pumpkin is now 9 month old! You have officially spent the same amount of time out in the world as you have inside my belly. Your becoming such an amazing little character, crawling around and climbing on everything. We spent the day picking pumpkins ready to carve tomorrow on Halloween, Kody has 3 outfits 😂 it’s a good job he gets so messy and has clothes changes several times a day 🙈
This cold weather is perfect for Kodys personalised all in one! It’s so nice and thick and a dark colour (thankfully! I love dressing him in white but it’s normally stained after the first wear 🙈) it’s the perfect thing to put on especially for a comfy day around the house and the fact it has no feet means Kody can stand up without me having a heart attack because he’s about to fall 😂😂😂 it’s from @preciouslittlestitches and KODY10 gets you a discount!!!
Now that the sun has gone away, our holiday has finished, autumn is here and winter fast approaching I’ve finally put away the dresses and sun hats in exchange for jumpers and bobble hats! (Kodys Is a little big, I think it will still fit next year 😂🤷🏼♀️) Anyone else find it hard to let go of our summer sun? I’ve had such a fantastic first summer with Kody that I never wanted it to end... at least I have Christmas to look forward too...
Row row row your boat, Gently in the bath. If you see a clown, Don’t forget to laugh... (Followed by hysterical laughter) Is currently one of our favourites at the moment. What’s your little ones favourite nursery rhymes? We need some new ones to add into our collection... Originals are good but we love a little remixed version in our house. Also anybody else’s bathtub look like an explosion in a toy factory? It’s s good job Kody is the only one that uses the bathtub often!
A perfect picture can often make you think someone’s life is just that... Perfect. Just remember that when you see everyone’s pretty, well coordinated feeds, that most of them only share the good bits (I’m guilty of that myself 🙈). Currently I’m having some serious holiday blues after coming home and going back to work the next day. I’m already looking at booking another even though we really don’t have the money! Saving for a mortgage is so damn hard. On another note Kody has come up in this awful rash all over his body!!! No temperature and it disappears when I press on it! Fingers crossed it’s gone by tomorrow 🤞🏻
Had another great day with my little family! Still no pictures with Aaron (that he will let me upload 😩) but plenty with this little chunk! We spent most of our day walking around Lanzarote’s Sunday market, which was huge!!! Loads of great buys tho! Anyone else slightly addicted to shopping too???
Kody was an absolute angel on the plane here! So much so that the surrounding passengers were commenting on how well behaved he was. A happy baby, no crying, no tantrums and occupied the whole way equals a mum win for sure! I wanted to share how I did this with you all so have written a blog about surviving an aeroplane flight with an infant, link is in my bio. I’ve even shared my “funny” mum fail.... it was funny for everyone else but I certainly wasn’t laughing!!
Ok so it’s not a holiday where I can sunbathe, it’s not a holiday where I can put my feet up an relax, it’s not a holiday where I can go touring for hours and it’s not a holiday where I can stay out until stupid times in the morning getting drunk. But it’s a holiday filled with love and laughter, it’s a holiday full of quality time with my favourite people and it’s a holiday I wouldn’t change for the world. Aaron pretty much refuses to get in a load of pictures and is much happier to be the man behind the camera 😂 but I’m sure I will get one some point this holiday!
Kodys loving splashing around in the shallow baby pool and I’m loving all this sunshine! It’s just such a shame that my poor little chap is all dribbly and snotty with red eyes and cheeks... I suspect he’s teething again. Luckily I brought some gel and calpol, hopefully it doesn’t last all holiday 🤞🏻
Our evening led us to playing at softplay... right before bedtime 🙈 not sure whether it has tired him out and he’s gonna “sleep like a baby” or whether he’s going to be super stimulated and fight going to sleep 😬 wish me all luck guys! I’m keeping my fingers crossed for an easy peaceful bedtime. Plus I’m doing all my packing tonight, we’re so excited! In 63hours we will be at our hotel, soaking up the sun and all the family fun 🎉😆
A few days late but I can’t believe this little man is 8 months old and it’s finally the beginning of autumn. To celebrate we went and did a diy photo shoot in a wooded area. If you want to get a sneak peek at the pictures check out tonight’s blog post (two thirds of a year) the link is in my bio!
Playing outside together in the garden for a little bit today! Strange weather but we dusted off our winter hats and got some fresh air! Kodys now finally asleep and I can spend my evening catching up on instagram and finally writing my next blog post Ft this gorgeous personalised cardigan from @preciouslittlestitches it’s just perfect for this type of weather OMG of course it’s amazing quality like all of their products!
Little did I know, over the last few days Kody has managed to cut a tooth!! Silly old me thought he just had a cold 🙈 got some serious mum guilt for letting him be in pain and not giving him some calpol 😢. It’s made him all stuffy and blocked up, luckily @snufflebabeuk sent us some saline drops and a nasal aspirator a few weeks ago! What great timing 😊 although Kody doesn’t enjoy using them they have allowed him to breath clear and get some much needed sleep! Thank you so much @snufflebabeuk we love your products! #ad
Looking back on pictures of the warmer weather then out the window is so depressing... then I think about my holiday in a few weeks time and get so excited! Also feel like I need to prepare you lot for my upcoming holiday spam 😂 sorry, not sorry 🤷🏼♀️ Anyone else got a holiday coming up? Where you lot off too?
