Tales of Little Z – 10, 11 and 12 months

Oh my Little Z, how are you one? One year old. One. Whole. Year. Happy birthday my love! I am in real shock that so much time has already passed. But it’s been such a wonderful year. I have thrilled at watching you grow and change. It is an absolute pleasure to watch your relationship with Little H grow stronger and stronger too. You are so mobile now, moving around wherever you want, climbing up, crouching down, standing independently. Will

What Little H did – 3.0 years

WalkingWithTeddy

Happy third birthday Little H! As clichéd as it sounds, I really am not sure where the last 3 years have gone. I vividly remember you being such a small tiny baby that I was both in awe and fear of! You’ve changed so much in the last three years and yet in that time I feel like I know you inside out. I can’t imagine a world without you now. Not saying you don’t test my patience. This month

What Little H did – 2.3 years

Ah my lovely we’ve had such a good month together. The weather has been nicer so we’ve been outside exploring. You enjoy walking everywhere now and you can get around all the steps in the garden unaided. You genuinely do not stop talking my love! Let’s check out your busy April…

What Little H did – 2.1 years

Happy February Little H, Every month my Timehop pings up photos and tweets from the same day in previous years. This month I have now started seeing pictures of you from both last year and the year before. It seems so strange that we’re doing the third time round the calendar together now! Whilst it scares me that you are getting old so fast, I also love that you are so incredibly established in our life now! You’ve tested us

My darling little H, Happy Birthday my lovely! You’re 2 years old. How can you be 2 years old already? I so vividly remember you arriving. Of being with you that first night in hospital and wondering what on earth I had to do. But now it’s so normal you being here. It’s so normal looking after you. I can of course remember life before you were here…but I can’t remember how it felt full. You’ve tested me with your

Birthday’s when you’re the mum of a small person

Last month it was my birthday. Whilst I was still awake early, Sam got up and went downstairs with H so I could have a lie-in; For breakfast we had some delicious pancakes and H decided to play ball and not throw any of it anywhere; We went out for a nice morning stroll in the sunshine; Then over H’s nap time I had a quiet read and opened a few presents (so they didn’t get pinched by little hands);

Happy Birthday Sam!

Sam has just had his birthday, joining me in the 4th decade of life. We were coming back from our holiday in North Wales on his birthday (more to follow on that front) so I decided to organise him a little shindig yesterday with some friends and family. All of this was hush-hush though, I should add. Plans were going well and a good crowd had said they were coming. Sam was none-the-wiser. Unfortunately, with only 24 hours to go,

Surprise!

I am shattered today, no word if a lie. It has literally been non-stop. I arose at 6:40 to venture forth to rowing and then did two back-to-back outings in the 8, hitting a grand total of 22k! After a few chats / bits if admin, I got away shortly after 11:30 to start my part in the ‘Lou’s surprise birthday party’ plan. I high-tailed it home, showered and changed and then headed to Ware to collect Lou. Once at

Blog Post 14-06-2010

So, another year old.  Well, another year older since this time after my last birthday – it’s not as though I have suddenly aged one year in the space of a day…  Had a good birthday weekend – nice food and presents and a trip to The Butterfly World Project near St Albans.  On a bad note though, I felt rough for most of the weekend.  I was so tired last week that I woke up on Saturday for rowing with
