It’s f r i d a y, hallelujah 🙌🏾... i’m running on ‘e’ over here after this week... and despite the fact that a pillow fight just turned into world war iii over here, and there’s still a pile of clean laundry that’s been sitting there since tuesday, aand i had to pull tiny cactus needles out of my kids foot tonight 🌵 ...it’s okay, bc it’s friday, and that always seems to make everything better, amiright.!?

I’m that distracted mom that forgets milestone photos, but miss norah rose was one month old on wednesday ☺️
another reason to celebrate: we’re one month into breastfeeding! whether it’s one month or one year, it’s a tough job and any milestone is celebratory. (meanwhile i’m currently over here pumping)🐮
if you told me in my early 20’s that i would spend half of my day, every day, for months on end, in any setting, nursing my babies comfortably and confidently, i probably wouldn’t have believed you. but here i am, happy to be the source of nourishment for my b**e and thankful for this body for allowing me to do so because i know so many women dream of being able to breastfeed.
if i can give you any piece of advice, it’s this: don’t compare your baby-feeding journey to anyone else’s. raising a baby is a learning experience alone, let’s not put unnecessary stress on ourselves because of how we choose to feed our babies. ✨
Saturday night vibes ✨
today has been the loveliest day. tom is off this weekend, so saturday has actually felt like saturday for once.
we’ve not long got back from a lovely meal with the girls, who were both so well behaved.
when aria was a baby, we’d be more reluctant to interfere with her routine, but with olivia, we feel so much more flexible. and she takes it all in her stride.
i definitely feel like we’re more relaxed this time around. maybe because we know what we’re doing, or because she has such a laid back nature, or maybe both? i’m not sure. but it was so nice to break the routine for the evening. we’re now snuggled in pyjamas and watching a movie before bed 💤 have a lovely evening everyone!
S h e ~ grows. oh how she grows! already finding little pockets of her own world. already deciding to keep them for herself. already aware of how her body moves, feels and fills a room. a year is a lifetime for her and a mere second in which to catch my breath for me......💔
When you are given a request for jasmine ears 😍
absolutely love how these turned out!
Day two! baby no name has been affectionately ‘fed’ with toddler breakfasts, has had her face scratched by enthusiastic hugs and been rudely woken up by two older sisters pulling her in different directions, both desperate to hold her. welcome to the family little girl ❤️
Well we had a few flurries of snow this morning, but nothing more since. we have still stayed in today though, as it's really quite cold out there!
this photo is from the other week when the children spent ages whizzing through puddles on their scooters in the park. at what age do puddles stop being such a source of fun?!
