• BABY FIRST FOOD IDEAS

    We first noticed about 2 months ago that Lawson was polishing off his bottles like an absolute truck, and every time we increased his feed by an ounce, he’d polish that off too and want more… Thus, we have started weaning! I was super excited to start weaning Lawson and watching him try new tastes

  • LESSONS OF A FIRST TIME MUM #3

    In a couple of weeks time, I will be the proud owner of a 5-month-old baby. Seeing as the last ‘Lessons in Motherhood’ post was when Lawson was eight weeks old (where has my baby gone?!!), I thought I should update you on some more lessons I’ve been learning as a new mother. 1. You

  • LOST IN MOTHERHOOD

    Today’s post is quite a personal one, but one that I’d like to air out and get into the open. I mean, what else is blogging for, really? When I was pregnant, I remember reading a plethora of articles about motherhood, and repeatedly came across some version of this phrase: “You will find yourself again.”

  • MUMMY DATES PROJECT 2017

    The lovely Louise Pentland off of Sprinkle of Glitter (blog) and Sprinkle of Glitter (YouTube) has blown my mind with her new project for 2017, which encourages mamas everywhere to basically spend more quality, present time with their kids, and blog about it.

  • POST BABY BODY TALK

    Ugh. I really don’t want to write this post. Weight-loss/health based blog posts tend to be a bit controversial right now because everyone has their own opinions (and rightly so) about ways of maintaining their health that works for their bodies. So this post is really just me sharing my thoughts about my post-baby body,

  • FIVE TIPS FOR SURVIVING ILLNESS WITH A BABY

    I write as I feel inspired. This week, I had wonderful intentions of writing a ‘Lessons I Learned During 2016’ blog post after reading Robin Sharma’s extensive list of 26 (he must have had a great year). But to tell you the truth, other than ‘you’ve got a higher pain threshold than you thought’ and

  • LESSONS OF A FIRST TIME MUM #2

    The day Lawson had his first vaccinations is the day I realised how much becoming a mother has ruined my ability to hold my s*** together. It’s a funny story… Twenty-four hours prior to his immunisations, I naturally spent a significant portion of time Googling. ‘How do I look after a baby with a fever?’

  • LESSONS OF A FIRST TIME MUM #1

    For a large part of my time as a pregnant lady, I was in complete denial of how much motherhood would change my life. Nothing prepared me for this little bundle of joy that would somehow sap all of my time (and money.) I vividly remember being given on more than one occasion unwanted nuggets

  • LAWSON’S FIRST PHOTOS

    Greetings from the other side! Hopefully you’re up to date with my social media enough to know that our gorgeous little Lawson made his appearance on Monday 26th September at 1:01am, after his Mama being in denial that she was actually in labour for most of the day! The photo above (where I look like…
