Gaining confidence and making the most of the winter sun

AFTER nearly six months I feel like I’m finally getting into the swing of getting out of the house with two little people – and even being spontaneous. For a while I only went places with both Santi and Ezra if Stew was with us or if we were meeting friends so I wasn’t alone. Read More

Changing our baby’s name after he was registered

CHOOSING your baby’s name is a huge deal, but what happens if you choose the wrong one?

What the boys wore: Stars and stripes

THE weather hasn’t exactly been summery for July, so sadly all the lovely shorts and t-shirts I optimistically bought have stayed in the wardrobe and we’ve been in trousers and long sleeves.

WHEN picturing your life after having a baby you might imagine cosy evenings all snuggled up on the settee watching Disney films.

Newborn baby essentials: Perfect Prep, Baby Bjorn and Cosydream

HAVING a baby opens up a whole new world of “must-have” gadgets for feeding, sleeping and generally making your life easier. I was sucked into buying a fair few of them for Santi (mainly out of desperation after sleepless nights) – some worked, others didn’t, and some we barely used. thought I’d share my recommendations Read More
