❋ • 𝓑𝓻𝓮𝓪𝓽𝓱𝓮 • ❋ We spent the day at my aunties house with some family members. Kody had a fantastic time playing with my cousins and splashing around in the pool before passing out asleep, during which time I stepped outside into the fresh air. My auntie has such a beautiful house and wooded area that how could I resist snapping a picture or two. #springhashtagchallenge
❁ • 𝓑𝓵𝓸𝓸𝓶 • ❁ Flower arranging is way harder than it looks, I set out to make a gorgeous wreath, half covered in flowers for this picture and this is as good as it got. The flowers kept falling off and it never stayed how I wanted it too! The flowers kept dropping and I had no idea how to fasten them in place 🙈. Then just to make things better my camera focused on the background instead of the flowers and didn’t last long enough for more pictures. Well at least I tried 😂. Anyone have any good tips for me? #springhashtagchallenge
☆ • 𝓐𝔀𝓪𝓴𝓮𝓷 • ☆ The word awaken makes me think of how much I dread to do just that 😂🤷🏼♀️ this mama is not a morning person! There’s never a morning where I am happy to drag my scruffy self out of bed. Especially not this morning, Kody seems to be better just as I feel like crap. Horrid stomach aches and an accompanying headache. Kody is now at his nanny’s and I’m contemplating taking myself back to bed 😂🤷🏼♀️. #springhashtagchallenge
Today has been a difficult one for me, Kody is really not himself, we were up most of last night while he screamed on and off for hours. He’s been so unhappy and clinging to me all day, having a meltdown if anyone else even looks at him. Hopefully it’s just his teeth that are bothering him and he will sleep better tonight 🤞🏻. Also guys sorry I’ve been absent for ages, we’ve been moving into our new house and life is just hectic, but now I’m back and ready for @littlepaperswan @edinburghwithkids spring hashtag challenge which starts tomorrow!
The weather today was just awful here today. Storms of hail broken by patches of sun that gave you hope it was getting nicer again, just to throw some more rain and hail down 😭. We spent a lot of today collecting up some house bits ready for the move and starting to box things! You never know how much stuff you have until you have to pack it all up. As Kody is getting older it’s getting harder and harder to get nice pictures of him whilst he’s awake, at least he will still fall asleep on me so we can take these beautiful sleeping ones 💛🧡💛🧡
WE’RE MOVING! We finally found a nice little two bed that’s cheap enough for us to continue saving for our mortgage whilst giving us some much needed space and Kody his own bedroom! I’m super excited, it’s freshly refurbished and has a good size garden. Ive been going over on my head how I want it to look which keeps reminding me of this amazing little plant shop we saw yesterday in Bristol! Think I’m due a trip back to grab some gorgeous house plants. What’s some of your favourite plants to keep in your home? In need of some ideas!
What an amazing day I’ve had out as a family visiting the Brunels Buttery, the M shed and just generally walking around Bristol. Lots more pictures in my stories 🔝. I love how much there is to do near us but I’m running out of ideas. What’s your favourite things to do as a family?
A child’s imagination is so magical and for us as adults something we often don’t understand. It can then sometimes be discouraged, even if that is not our intention. I often wonder what goes through my little mans head whilst he’s playing or sleeping and attempt to jump into his world when we’re sat playing, he has so much more fun and a smile ear to ear when I’m being daft with him, even if I do look silly, those laughs are always worth it. We spent this morning watching the Harry Potter films so this is my best guess at what he’s dreaming about. Based on your child’s day what do you think they will be dreaming about tonight?
Today’s play was bug hunting in the garden. Sunday’s are my only day work free and so that time with Kody is irreplaceable and I hope to always make the most of it especially when he’s little. When @instagram announced their weekend hashtag project as #whpplayful I was supper excited as it was one we could really join in with, especially as the sun was shining. What have you all been up to on such a gorgeous day? . . I adore the top Kody is wearing from @preciouslittlestitches it’s super cute and their clothes are always such amazing quality!! Honestly one of my all time favourite Instagram shops! And they can do anything you ask of them, she’s just amazing! #gifted
I’m back from my week long insta break, I had a lot of work to get done for my training course and I simply haven’t had the time to create content I was happy with. Also this is officially my first post of spring so how could I not use this gorgeous blossom bush as a background? I’m in love with how everything is changing, the flowers are emerging, the weather is warming and the days are getting longer and brighter. What’s your favourite part of spring? . . Thanks @littlepaperswan for inspiring me with all your gorgeous blossom shots recently, and of course I’m using @littlepaperswanpresets

When I saw how the light hit Kody during his nap time I couldn’t help but snap a shot... that turned into 79 🙈. Anyone else do that? Take 1000 photos to scroll through them and find the best 5 or so even though they’re nearly identical 😂. Check out the screenshot of my camera roll in my stories ⇧.
Happy Monday! What did everyone else do on this beautiful day? . . . We spent the morning swimming, something I thought Kody would hate. We haven’t been in ages and recently Kody has been throwing full blown tantrums when we get water in his eyes in the bath! You can imagine my disbelief when he sat on the steps blowing bubbles into the water, stepping straight of the edge into the pool and dunking his head under. We ended up spending nearly and hour and 30 mins in the pool because he was just having such a great time, smiles all round. Then we stepped outside into such gorgeous sunshine, and Kody napped for over two hours!! Happy baby and happy mummy, win win!
Happy international women’s day to all my feminine followers! . . Ok, ok yes it’s a pointless day because let’s face it we should celebrate women everyday as we are, of course, the superior sex 😂. No I’m just kidding, but it was a great excuse to use this content idea I’ve had in the back of my brain for a little while. . . . Creating content is so much harder in the winter, dull dreary days with awful lighting and rain that makes it hard to shoot outside. (I had to get a little wet for this picture 🙈.) but the days are slowly getting brighter and the light is lasting longer...
You can’t pick your family. . . . A well known saying that I hear all the time. For most people who use this quote it’s one filled with negativity as if this is a bad thing. For me, my little family is just perfect and something I couldn’t be prouder of. If I did have the choice to pick it would look identical to this picture. My life wouldn’t be the same without my boys. . . . . Also check my stories to join in with my favourite picture share
Because a cup of tea and closing my eyes is everything I’ve wanted all day! . . . Kody has had this little ongoing cough for the last few weeks but 2 days ago it got a lot worse. Last night we spent over 3 hours awake listening to him cough and then whimper where it must’ve been hurting his throat. I can’t help but feel sorry for him, it’s awful to see your baby unwell and in pain. Mummy cuddles and milk made it a little better until the next bout of coughing. Needless to say I’ve spent most of the day in my pjs with a cup of tea in my hand feeling tired. He finally fell asleep at about 7:15 but has already woken up twice... I haven’t even managed to leave the bedroom yet. Hopefully he falls into a swap sleep soon and gets a good bit of rest 🤞🏻. .
Kody was so brave for his injections today. I really expected him to scream and cry! Sat in the waiting room I felt sick watching him happily run around not knowing what was coming 😭. He had two in his arms followed by two in his legs, he cried whilst they gave him the injections but stopped nearly immediately after. I then had to rush straight off to work feeling super guilty for leaving him. He’s now tucked up in his bed after a relaxing bath, some of mummy’s milk and a little bit of calpol. Fingers crossed he sleeps well tonight! 🤞🏻
Thank you to everyone who has wished me a happy birthday, and bought me cards and presents. I have such wonderful friends and family. I had a fantastic morning just me and my little boy as Aaron was at work, we then enjoyed a delicious meal out as a family this evening. We’re now home and running Kodys bath because he’s shattered! I couldn’t wish for better people to spend my birthday with 😊❤️ Edited using “the white one” from @littlepaperswan @littlepaperswanpresets
