Advice for new mums…

Honestly, I’m probably not the best person to give advice on having a baby and what happens next as I’ve only had one baby, a baby, my baby, little Emily who isn’t so little anymore, but in the eyes of just about most, is very little, but I do think there should be some kind…

What I’ve learnt in the year since Emily was born

Since Emily was born so many things have happened. Amazing things, wonderful things, crazy things. It’s been a brilliant journey and we’re only 15 months in. The past 15 months has flown by at a ridiculous rate. How did we make it through this time without killing each other? But although there’s been moments, it’s…

Some ways I interact with Missy

Little Miss is an active baby. As you’ve read from my previous posts she’s a keen kick-boxer, dancer and loves the sound of any form of movement, or even my breathing to set her off on her mission to make herself known. At first the idea of talking to her seemed odd. Like, how on…
