Jenson: 26 months old

When people ask me how old Jenson is now I keep saying that he's just turned two, when in fact that was two months ago. Seriously, where is the time going?! Following last month's update we've been for his hearing test and had the follow-up with the Health Visitor. He slept all the way through… Continue reading Jenson: 26 months old

Flow magazine, hearing tests and Play-Doh! #LittleLoves

It's been a funny ol' week and felt very much 'business as usual' but still with little moments to treasure. Here are some of my highlights. Read: I bought Flow magazine for the first time a year or two ago and fell in love with it instantly - but £10 an issue is quite expensive… Continue reading Flow magazine, hearing tests and Play-Doh! #LittleLoves

Jenson: 25 months old

I don't want to be one of those parents who says 'my son is 25 months old' instead of 'my son is two' but it makes it easier for these monthly update posts. I'm not sure how long I'm going to keep them up for but when he's still changing month by month it makes… Continue reading Jenson: 25 months old

Summer bucket list 2017

Now that another half-term is behind us and summer is inching ever closer, I've got to thinking about things I want to do this summer in Cornwall - in particular fun and affordable things we can do as a family. Here's what I've come up with. 1. Visit the Tremenheere Sculpture Gardens. Taking Jenson anywhere… Continue reading Summer bucket list 2017

Memories from Jenson’s second year

When I was pregnant I bought a 'one line a day' journal to record Jenson's first five years and I'm sharing some highlights on/near each birthday. You can catch up on his first year here. Below are some faves from his second year. 30 May 2016: Your first birthday was the perfect day - gorgeous… Continue reading Memories from Jenson’s second year

Jenson: Two years old

Jenson turned two yesterday. Two! And he was an absolute angel. I don't know if I'm over-romanticizing it because I know that so many little kid things he does could be the last but I'm savouring the small things even more these days, like his bedtime bottles (yes, even though he's two!) and wanting to… Continue reading Jenson: Two years old

Self-Care Sunday #14

This is a face I've seen a lot of this week. I know I've mentioned sleep in my self-care tips before but in a week where I've been busy at work and had a not particularly well child on my hands while I've been at home, sleep has been key. I've left the dishes til… Continue reading Self-Care Sunday #14

Jenson: 23 months

Holy crap, when I come to write Jenson's next update he'll be two years old! We've got a lot of birthday planning to do before then. The biggest decision is deciding on a party theme: Moana or Dory. For the last few weeks Moana was his favourite film and it always gets him singing and… Continue reading Jenson: 23 months

The Good Fight, biscuit decorating and Papergang #LittleLoves

How is my annual leave nearly over :( Fortunately I'm off again in a few weeks for Jenson's birthday and I feel like I've been productive with my time this week. I've been out in the sun, spent time with the family and caught up with friends. And we've got another birthday party tomorrow -… Continue reading The Good Fight, biscuit decorating and Papergang #LittleLoves
