Mothering 2 – thoughts after 2 months

HappySisters

So Little Z has been part of our lives for two whole months now – almost 2.5 by the time I actually post this! As millions have said before me, I can’t believe it’s been that long yet it’s also like she’s always been here. I’ve almost forgotten what it feels like to be pregnant and I finally feel like I’m getting control of my body again. Today I was nipping upstairs and I felt fairly light on my feet

Whilst I was never one to say our family was

What Little H did – 3.3 years

Pigtails

Wow Little H, it’s been a hectic month but you have been on top form! You’ve tested us with a few tantrums but for the most part you have been hilarious! In fact, you’ve been so funny that I’ve not managed to capture even half of the hilarious things you’ve done. You had a virus in the middle of the month which was a shame, but you fought it off really quickly. Little Z has been lucky to have lots
