Such a good weekend away with great friends. This chick is just surprising us daily with how grown up she is. Literally nothing gets past her now the little sponge [ I'm scared 😳]. Nothing like coming home to unpacking, grocery shopping, cleaning and sheet changing to kill your vibe though 😐 Emmi will be in bed at 7pm tonight and I'll be in bed at 7.10pm πŸ€ΈπŸΌβ€β™€οΈ. Can't wait to watch @theamosmob smash it on The Block. H bomb & Mossy you got this πŸ™ŒπŸ»πŸ”¨

Let's avo-cuddle? Yeah right mum, fat chance of that happening.. what's a Sunday morning sleep in anyway? #amumcandream

And it looks like I'm done breast feeding β€’ this is an old pic now and she had passed out asleep but it is one of the few times I was happy feeding β€’ I've never loved it, my back ached, my neck ached, I always leaked and the dependency that it HAD to be me always outweighed any bonding potential that feeding had β€’ I am a supporter of fed is best and a mother can feed her baby with boob or bottle or both and it doesn't matter and it's no ones business as long as that baby is fed β€’ I can't say I will miss it, but it comes with a realisation that I am now entering this part in my life where boxes are being ticked that I'll never do again, this is my last baby β€’ it's all a bit weird and I'm not sure how I feel about it β€’ lucky she's amazing allowing me to enjoy it more β€οΈβœ–οΈ

My arms are full and so is my heart πŸ’—βœ¨ Tonight we are all snuggled in bed having a family night film night seeing as we missed it last night πŸŽ₯ Lucy's already zonked on my chest and Ruby's enjoying snuggling tom and I πŸ‘ΆπŸΌ Whilst we watch Sing because it's one of Ruby's favourites, Tom and I are thinking of watching Miss Peregrines home for peculiar children πŸ€·πŸ»β€β™€οΈ Has anyone else seen it? πŸ™Š Today we've been super busy having fun! We went to Springfields and had a subway 🐷 Then did some shopping- Ruby got some new hair bobbles and clips to tame the mane and I got some new Gym tops/sports bra ready for next weeks First PT session, and tom spent Β£15 in the sweetie shop 🐷😩 πŸ›’ After a lovely walk round the gardens (where Ruby face planted three times and put her hand in bird shit πŸ˜‚πŸ€¦πŸ»β€β™€οΈ) shouting choo choo at the train πŸš‚This afternoon we all had a synchronised nap 😴 then went to the shop for dinner bits- Ruby learnt the word 'raining' it's literally the cutest thing ever as she skipped round co op saying raining repeatedly β˜”οΈ Lucy tried her first apple biscotti today and loved it she loves knawing her gums on EVERYTHING 🐷 that and blowing raspberries is her new thang today 😍✨ So we are pooped- the girls are cuddled into us both and I couldn't be happier πŸ’— Thanks to everyone who commented on yesterday's post reassuring me my child isn't in fact a cannibal but in fact it's completely normal, today she's been an angel πŸ˜‡ And it's made me feel 100% better that maybe after all I've got this Motherhood shit under control after all (for now maybe anyhow πŸ˜‚) #lfl #picoftheday #babylove

Kids are worn out after spending the day racing billy carts on the farm.
All in bed before 7! Unheard of.
HELLO apple crumble and Ninja Warrior! πŸ‘πŸΌπŸ’œ

Pregnancy has me all πŸ˜­πŸ˜‚πŸ˜ƒ. Poor Dave has had to cope with a roller coaster of emotions that seem so rational in the moment, and so absurd upon reflection. I'm incredibly thankful for an insanely patient and understanding husband, and for our beautiful daughter who makes each day just that much better. ✨

Finny got hurt, so my mom gave him his first Oreo. πŸ˜‚ I can't take it. πŸ˜‚

This afternoon was all about celebrating the unity of two very special and strong people. The great grand parents of Bear and Dino (husbands side) where married 60 years ago and so we had a big family gathering which included roasts and cakes, flowers representing the original bridal bouquet and chaos πŸ’πŸŽ‚πŸ˜‚. This photo I took 1 hour before said party when Dino insisted on asking for Bears hand again and again until she gave in with the biggest smile saying 'I love my Denny boy'. ❀️ sibling unity

🌿The "fourth trimester" is real. From troubles with breastfeeding to a 360 in your life. Now that Chloe is 3 months old I'm finally writing a post about just how real it was for me.

Today you are ten months old Nova. You are so active now with crawling and furniture walking. You are also a funny little girl, always laughing and smiling. You think hitting dada and sisters is the best and really like to pull their hair and his beard (mama is trying to teach you to be nice but that's apparently not as fun for you). You had your first trip to the emergency room due to a major ear infection. You have two new teeth now and still don't like many foods but have grown to like tiny pieces of egg and chicken. We can't wait to see what you learn next my love (maybe walking?!) ❀️ #MonthsOfNova
