Party planning is in full swing now with less than 3 weeks to go and I couldn't be more excited after receiving all this unicorn swag today! (Can I say swag? I'm not sure I'm young enough to use such a word ๐Ÿ˜‚) All these gorgeous bits are from @makemydaystationery swipe to see more ๐Ÿ‘‰๐Ÿป and there's loads more which I've posted on my stories earlier if you want to go and look ๐Ÿ‘€ The lovely Aimee has set up a discount code which is THROUGHEMSEYES20 which will get you 20% off her Etsy store ๐Ÿฆ„โœจ๐Ÿ’—๐Ÿ’ซ๐ŸŽ€ (p.s. you're all invited to Evie and Isla's party as me and @lilandlife will Instagram story the shit out of it ๐Ÿ™‹๐Ÿป๐Ÿ˜‚)

When you make a friend on mat leave and you both have a mutual love for eating ๐Ÿ™Œ๐Ÿป (aka we made friends because we were both following slimming world, safe to say we aren't anymore ๐Ÿ˜‚) every play date with @mrsyeulett & Tommy has involved lunch, cake or coffee and sometimes all 3 ๐Ÿ˜† today we opted for an all day breakfast, a steam train ride & a walk round the park ๐Ÿ™Œ๐Ÿป #willawalkcanceloutthecalories #matleavelife #ohiwillmissthis #makingthemostofit

After my post the other day about not having a bath in a really long time because it's always full of Evie's crap I decided to make an effort (yes having a bath counts as an effort) clear out the plastic tat, whack out the candles & relax. Apart from it wasn't relaxing ๐Ÿ˜‚ It was too bloody hot & I was sweating unbelievable amounts (another postpartum joy no one tells you about) & then I realised you can't really rinse your hair effectively in bath full of bubbles can you!? However I did get 20 minutes of peace and quiet so it's swings and roundabouts ๐Ÿ‘Œ๐Ÿป๐Ÿ›๐Ÿ’ฆ๐Ÿ”ฅ

I think a certain little lady is still catching up on sleep from Wednesday nights 2am party as she woke up this morning at half 9 and was back down by half 10 . . I am definitely not complaining as my house looks like a bomb site after going away (how does that work when you're not even in the house!?) so I've had the radio on full blast and managed to blitz the kitchen whilst Eves catches those zzzz's! ๐Ÿ’ค

This little one loved her first trip to the aquarium ๐Ÿ˜๐Ÿ ๐Ÿ™๐Ÿก๐Ÿฆ€ we have had the best week off with Daddy but he goes back to work tomorrow (poor lad going back on a Saturday shift) and then Eves and I have one more 'official' week of maternity leave before we start the settling in sessions for nursery. I don't know how I feel about it? Obviously I'm apprehensive but I'm kind of excited for her, she just thrives in social situations and I feel like she will grow and learn so much from this time in her life! I'm by no means looking forward to returning to work however it doesn't fill me with complete dread, I'm currently hovering at this weird *in between not sure how I feel* stage which I think is a positive thing as I'm just going to take each day as it comes โค๏ธ

When you're the same size as your rucksack ๐Ÿ˜ We decided to swap a week in a caravan in Anglesey for 2 days in Birmingham, albeit a slightly different change of pace and scenery however there is much more fun to be had in a city for this one ๐Ÿ‘†๐Ÿปโค๏ธ The thought of being trapped in a caravan with this crawling ninja is not my idea of fun ๐Ÿ™ƒ๐Ÿ˜‚

I spent the whole of my pregnancy in the bath, I absolutely love them! However since we started with a bath and bedtime routine for Evie at about 3 months old I haven't even dipped my toe in a bath! (Don't worry I've been showering instead. I haven't stopped washing altogether) The bath now belongs to this little lady, look how her toys have encroached upon my lovely chilled zen bathroom. The candles and bath soaks are gone and they've been replaced with a (rather annoying) singing fish and brightly coloured boats. But look how happy it makes her and that little round face with her hair flat to her head after a good old wash with @johnsonsbabyuk Top-to-Toeยฎ she looks like a different baby! #welcometotheworld #johnsons #johnsonsbaby #ad

The most insane Nutella, Oreo and flake ice cream from @pan_n_ice in Selfridges ๐Ÿ™Œ๐Ÿป๐Ÿ˜๐Ÿซ๐Ÿฆ

Me and Evie Pops are super excited to be teaming up with @johnsonsbabyuk! We've been using the JOHNSONโ€™Sยฎ Top-to-Toeยฎ baby bath as part of our bedtime routine. I do love watching her splash around in the bath and there is nothing quite as cute as a freshly washed baby wrapped up in a towel! #welcometotheworld #johnsons #johnsonsbaby #ad

The mug that nearly questioned my marriage. "You want to spend ยฃ20 (and the rest hun but okay๐Ÿ˜‚) on a mug for our 1 year old daughter" well when you say it like that Daniel you make me look like a crazy woman (๐Ÿ™ƒ) but in a word yes. In my defence it's totally sentimental and when she's 18 I'll be like look doll I bought you this for your 1st birthday and Eves will be all awwww Mum you're the cutest (๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜‚) plus I got free postage and free personalisation so technically it was a bargain, yes?! #iknowisoundcrazy #thatsbecauseiam #howcutethough #emmabridgewater #mumsofinstagram
