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

Self-Care Sunday #16

One of my highlights of the week is taking Jenson to his swimming lesson. Of course, it helps when we have time to stop for coffee and cake with our friends after, but I actually really love just being in the water with him. He's so happy and fearless, it's great to see, and it's… Continue reading Self-Care Sunday #16

Birthday celebrations, summer footwear and awesome post #LittleLoves

I've had a hectic week off work as we've been celebrating Jenson's second birthday! I'm now officially the mother of a two year old. May the tantrums begin (continue...). But Jenson hasn't been the only one to receive some epic stuff over the last few days. Here's a look at our week. Read: As I've… Continue reading Birthday celebrations, summer footwear and awesome post #LittleLoves

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

The Next Together, Peppa Pig and annual leave #LittleLoves

What a week! For the last few days I've felt like it's not my place (and my blog is not the platform) to comment on the tragic events in Manchester but it has been on my mind a lot. It has certainly made me cherish the little moments with Jenson more. Here's a look at… Continue reading The Next Together, Peppa Pig and annual leave #LittleLoves

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

The Sun Is Also A Star, family time and Cornish weather #LittleLoves

I almost skipped Little Loves this week because when I came to draft the post I thought it wasn't very exciting. Then I remembered that blogging isn't just about the good times; life can be mundane at times and we shouldn't feel the need to hide it or embellish. So here's my rather average week!… Continue reading The Sun Is Also A Star, family time and Cornish weather #LittleLoves

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

Manic Pixie Dream Girls, Peppa Pig and Ed Sheeran sing-alongs #LittleLoves

It's been another one of those weird weeks where the weather was gorgeous all weekend so I was able to frolic in the son with Jenson and then when my working 'week' started (sorry not sorry) I was in bed every night with Jenson with no evenings to myself. I find it easier to cope… Continue reading Manic Pixie Dream Girls, Peppa Pig and Ed Sheeran sing-alongs #LittleLoves
