“February is the border between Winter and Spring” Terri Guillemets.

I saw this quote recently, on someone’s insta square, and for the life of me I cannot remember where I saw it. But I love it.

It’s such a transformative month and I get all excited seeing the new buds sprouting above the surface. New beginnings.

With each new Spring comes new beginnings. New blooms in the garden, new colours and new weather.

I’m looking forward to many more walks in the Wintery Sun & filling my lungs with fresh air.

What do you love about February?

Today marks a month since we lost our little Rambo. We’re still trying to heal but, as all the advice said, it is getting a little lighter to carry the grief each day.

Isla still isn’t sleeping very well and when it gets towards the end of the evening, we’re all a little out of sorts. Simply, we miss him so much.

I’m going to brave it and write a blog dedication to my little best bud, I haven’t felt brave enough yet. He was such a lovely dog, also a bit weird & funny, it will be nice to share his stories.

I love this photo of the 3 of them snuggling. This was just before Christmas. This is quite often what view I would have behind my desk… my little snugglers!

Do you take loads of photos of your pets snuggled in different ways?

The Winter Sun has been so beautiful over the last few days.  I think today we’re going to see a change to cloudy skies.

I love this photo. The low sun and the kids having a little adventure. I spend a lot of my time watching them interact. I guess that’s a big part of parenthood. Learning and growing.

Have you been making the most of the weather?

A little corner of my office… I spend most of my week here so it’s nice to pretty it up sometimes. I even managed to blur out the water marks on the windows (they need a good clean).

My tax return has been submitted and my assignment has too! Quite a day for submissions and I’m relieved. I’m in the last year of uni and I’m so grateful for the support I’ve had to complete it. I am focussed on finishing, which is giving me the mindset to get it done.

What did you do today that your relieved about?

Daddy = “Kids please don’t try and walk on the ice”….
Kids = ☝🏻

They kept edging towards the pond, “I just want to break the ice”. They did make me laugh. And yes, they ignored the instructions. But they did only tap the ice with their toes.

It made for a little adventure this afternoon. I love this Winter sun!

Do your kids love standing on frozen puddles?

The frost is so beautiful 🥶 I love the days where it is frosty but super sunny. The sun was beaming into my office today. It made my heart happy. 

This weather is definitely snuggle & binge watch TV shows kind of weather. I’ve started watching Bloodlines on Netflix. I started it as I just loved “Judy” from Dead to Me and thought I’d give this a try. It’s quite gripping & I’ve not been too good at predicting the storyline so far. Which usually I can!

Do you have any Wintery snuggle shows that I need to add to my watch list?

13 Weeks – 3 months

13 Weeks – 3 months

Yes, we are now at the 3 month mark, not only does she just seem so diddy, she is so strong & alert, it just doesn't seem right. You'd expect her to be this little newborn who just wants a cuddle. Oh no, this little lady has other plans... She wants to be standing all the time, stretching her legs so they lock at the knee. She'll grasp your hand too whilst she does this so she's balancing, then give you a massive smile! We've had a bit of a break through with feeding and sleeping.... 3 of the 7 nights the past week, she has only woken up once & it was early morning. The other nights has been anything up to 3 times she will wake for milk. I'm not sure what's done differently the nights she doesn't sleep to the nights she does. I think it's just ...

My first month with Isla

This first month has been amazing and difficult, all at once, but I certainly wouldn’t change it for the world. Whoever told me that having 2 under 2 would be very hard to start with, wasn’t lying! I am hoping that the latter part of their advice “It will get easier” wasn’t a lie either. Isla is doing really well, she is a little colicky as she gets very upset late afternoon/early evening and has pangs of cries where only tapping her bottom will soothe her. She doesn’t really burp, more pops off, so burping her after feeds doesn’t really help. The midwife said that infacol will not help either as thats more for burping issues than with trapped wind, the other end. She snoozes on her tummy and when she has processed all the wind, all you can hear is almighty trumps from her moses basket and you can…

Week 3

Week 3

I cannot believe how quickly the past few weeks have gone, the days are flying by, which albeit might be due to Isla's perfect little 4 hour routine. But looking after a newborn and a toddler is certainly a longggggggggg old day that goes really quickly... doesnt make sense, does it? Isla was 3 weeks old yesterday and to celebrate we got her officially registered, welcome to the official register of the 2012 births little miss Isla Rae Constant. It was very exciting and in typical newborn fashion, she cried for milk as soon as we got to the registry office and fed right up until we left - I was there for the hour whilst she fed! Isla also decided to surprise us with a 3 week celebration of her own yesterday, she gave us the biggest, cutest, beaming smile for the first time. She looked so adorable and her eyes ...
