Jenson: 37 months old

I wasn't sure if I was going to continue with monthly updates once Jenson turned three but we'll see how things pan out over the next couple of months. I may feature him more in my Friday Favourites or I might just do updates for his birthdays. I'm constantly debating with myself over how much… Continue reading Jenson: 37 months old

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

Jenson: 15 months old

We've reached Jenson's quarter birthday again! No, we don't celebrate silly little things like that but it's crazy to think that he turned one three months ago. Before we know it it'll be Christmas! Fortunately we've just finished Christmas shopping for him (we've been stocking up a bit at a time when things have been… Continue reading Jenson: 15 months old

Jenson: Ten months old

My baby boy is ten months old today! I say baby; I swear he looks more like a proper little person every time I look at him! He sits there quite happily (when he's not teething - more on that dreckly!) chatting to himself, sat up playing with his toys, engrossed in the television... And… Continue reading Jenson: Ten months old

Jenson: Nine months old

Yep, my baby boy is now nine months old - three quarters of the way to his first birthday! I was reminded last week just how quickly the time goes and how you can never get it back. We were browsing the clothing sale in Sainsburys and spotted some cute Winnie the Pooh gear that… Continue reading Jenson: Nine months old

Jenson: Eight months old

I know I start every monthly update amazed at how fast the time has gone but this last month has definitely gone by a lot quicker than the rest. It probably has something to do with the fact that I go back to work on Monday and I don't feel like I did enough with… Continue reading Jenson: Eight months old

My life in photos: November 2015

It's only when looking back over my photos from the last month that I've realised that I've actually been pretty sociable. And Jenson has developed a helluva lot. Here are our months in photos. Up first, yours truly... 1. I bloody love where I live! How gorgeous is this walk? It's the view behind and… Continue reading My life in photos: November 2015

Jenson: Six months old

Oh my gosh, how is my baby six months old? He's definitely not a newborn anymore. Today is his half birthday and it's crazy to think that in just another six months he'll be a year old and possibly walking and talking! This past month he has grown and developed loads. At his last weigh-in,… Continue reading Jenson: Six months old

Jenson: Five months old

Over the past month I've felt like Jenson has become more of a little person and less of a baby. Sure, we still have plenty of early milestones to go, such as rolling over, first tooth and weaning, but he has a proper little personality now, can babble for hours and he's getting really strong… Continue reading Jenson: Five months old

Jenson: Four months old

Yep, you read that title right. My little dribbler is now four months old - we're a third of the way to his first birthday! And now that I'm a smidge over halfway through my maternity leave I'm reminded that every day I get to spend with him is precious. It won't be long until… Continue reading Jenson: Four months old
