Attis first swim βœ” ever taking these boys to the pools solo? πŸ™… never ever πŸ˜… #thatwasintense #gladwehavethebestgrandies #attisfirsts #archandatti

And just like that, life seems infinitely better after some sun πŸ’–πŸŒž #thankfuckforthat #hangingoutforsummer #dontmindthesnotonmyshirt #prettymuchapermanentfeaturenow

How are we at Thursday already? And I mean Thursday is nearly over anyway, this week has flown by I'm actually shocked. I feel like it's one of those weeks where I've been busy as anything but have actually achieved very little πŸ˜…πŸ€”πŸ’ I mean whatever, I'll take it, it's been a much better week for us so no complaints here πŸ‘‹ #justcheckingin #bcwestillboringaf #andlikekindabusy #butnotreally #atticusvictor

We still here πŸ‘‹ trucking on, Arch is back at kindy & Atti is sick af, but it's a fresh week & we are getting up out of the shit show that was last week πŸ‘ŒπŸ’πŸ™Œ #archandatti #justboringafatm

8 months old already my baby boy πŸ’”πŸ˜­ I can hardly believe it, it seems like I've blinked and you've grown up. All of a sudden you sit, bum shuffle around & stand holding onto the couch, you want to crawl so much as well. You've got 2 wee teeth, love a good pash & you're always down for a cuddle, and today you said your first word, 'Zara' πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚ not mum or Nana or even dad, good ol aunty Za got the title. The brotherly bickers have started, you absolutely adore Archer but he is not your biggest fan, especially when you pull his hair, play with his toys or even look at him. Atti, you were once my dream baby, this past month you've been more like a devil child but I love seeing you grow into your own person, the cheeky is already starting to come through and I know I am going to have my hands full to the brim with you and your brother. Filled with love for you, Atticus πŸ’–πŸ‘Š #atticusvictor #8monthsold

Let's be real, it's a been a shit show of a week, but I am blown away by the kindness, generosity & support I have received. I cannot thank all of you enough, there is nothing more empowering than woman pulling other woman up out of the shit & my heart has never been fuller knowing I have so many beautiful souls around me. Every message I've had on snapchat, comment on posts, direct message has gone straight to my heart and every act of kindness has made this week survivable. Sunday last week, I stared down the barrel of what I knew would be a shitter and honestly did not know how I would get through. And I did, because so many people reached out and gave a shit. Today, I am crying happy tears because I am so damn grateful πŸ’– #heartfullasfuck #luckiestwomanever #bestfuckingtribe #atticusvictor

Early shower for these two, purely because I needed some space between us. Like glass walls, a barricade. I have been constantly holding, rocking, feeding, cuddling and beginning the whole cycle again day in, day out, for literally how many days, like seriously I've lost track. And nights too, let's not forget about the lack of space between them that I have to sleep in. I am touched out & my cup is feeling pretty empty, there's not much of me left to give to them. Tomorrow, I get to clean for 2 hours, by myself. And I have never been more excited πŸ˜©πŸ€”πŸ˜‚ #imworkingsodunnohowmuchofabreakitreallyis #butitisabloodybreak #alsoifwecouldhaveadecentsleep #likethatwouldbeheaven #evensittingametreawayfromthemisheavenrn #andtheyarerelativelyhappytoo #thankgaaaaawd #archandatti

Because somehow even though I was hungover and in pain in this photo, it's better than tonight. To be fair, today was looking up, it wasn't too bloody bad. But then it was bedtime, and that wasn't bad either. But now it's 10:45pm & between the 2 boys they've woken up I'd say at least 12 times in almost 3 hours. It's like a coughing chorus, I'm just waiting for Arch to cough until he's sick and for Atti to go back to sleep, no doubt for him to wake up again in a matter of minutes from his cough or even better, Archers coughing. Oh the joys, winter is such a time to be alive, the best time to be a parent πŸŽ‰πŸ˜’ nothing like double coughing fits to keep ya on ya toes πŸ˜ŽπŸ˜‚ #wehaventbeensickinmonths #sonowwegotashitgo #surprisinglyimokay #tonighimcoping #lastnightwasgoodbutifitwasshitiwouldnthavecoped #ivecometotermswithmyluck #bythatimeanihavenone #archandatti

Arch has been hit with 2 bugs in 4 days, croup and now by the looks of it a potential tummy bug πŸ˜«πŸ˜” I'm really feeling it, all of it, life has hit me like a ton of bricks this week. And since I can't go into a legit coma for the next few weeks, next best is to hibernate 😞 #ifyouneedusplzdont #notgettingdressedorleavingthehouse #maybeaslightexaggeration #butforrealwhatIwannado

I've been meaning to take & post this photo all of world breastfeeding week, and in classic Aspen form I've left it to the last possible day. This is me, celebrating the fact I have breastfed every single day, for the last 3 years, 6 months & 7 days. It has been the single hardest thing I have done & also the shining light when life gets rough. I have breastfed my way through 2 city moves, a break up and an entire pregnancy. I cried and screamed and gritted my teeth for the first 6 weeks of feeding Archer. And for all of my pregnancy with Atticus I hated feeding him, it was such a horrendous feeling that it made me want to vomit every night I lay down with him. I have been in tears more times than I can count while feeding, from love, from sadness & from pain. But I am so proud of this achievement, and for how ever many more years I carry on, I will be proud of myself, for doing this, for them. #gotmoresappythanIintended #worldbreastfeedingweek #thatsalongtimetobebreastfeeding #damnrightimgonnabeproudofthis #ithasnotbeeneasy #butitsbeenworthit #bcimtoolazytogetupproperlyinthenight #breastfeeding #archandatti

I sit him up, he goes down & then he rolls & rolls until he's stuck and then we start again. All day long. #ripplants #justwaitingforhimtostartkillingthem #itreallywontbelong #itsannoyingmesomuchthattherugismtstraight #thewristrollstho #atticusvictor
