It's Been A While.

So it's been a while, Grace has well and truly taken over.
We have had a lot happen over the past month.
Unfortunately both my great grandparents passed away at the start of March, within a week of each other, it was a sad time, and I am truly grateful that Grace got to meet them both. They both lived long and happy loves, it was wonderful having the 5 generations within our family, even if it was only for a short time.
 
On a lighter note, Grace is doing amazing. I will do her 8 month update and fill you in on everything she's been doing. At the minute she is a happy baby girl, who is totally obsessed with her daddy.

I have also recently decided that I will not be returning to work. I don't think I ever told you all what I did for a living, I was a supervisor in a clothing store in a huge shopping centre.
At the minute it is not right for our family, and if I'm honest it isn't worth the money. I would spend more money going back to work, what with fuel for the car, the cost of a baby sitter and the constant temptation of buying more clothes, that I don't really need, we would be better off if I stay home, and I'm not going to lie, I couldn't be happier. Who wouldn't want to stay home with their baby? The thought of having to give my baby to someone else, while I go out to work is heartbreaking, and I am glad that for the time being I won't have to do that.

I now have to go and sort out a crazy baby.

BIG UPDATE!!!!

So it's been a while. Life truly took over, and I honestly don't know where to begin.
I imagined being a mum and keeping up with this blog an easy thing to achieve, how wrong was I? I have so much to update I feel like I'll be typing away for ages. So this is probably going to be a long one. 

Firstly a quick update on the kids (yes I said kids!!!)

Grace is doing amazingly well, she's 2 and a half! How the hell did that happen? She's in nursery five days a week, although it is just 3 hours in a morning, but I'm not complaining. She really has turned into the sweetest little girl, she is so caring and loving towards her little brother, we'll get to him in a moment, she knows a few colours, can count to 3, potty training is in full swing (I will do a post dedicated to potty training) and she's always singing and dancing, mainly to make her little brother laugh. All in all she's come on so much since starting nursery in September and I'm so glad we mad…

Grace's 9/10 Month Update.

WOW! 10 Months. I know I do this every month, but it really is going so quick. I have already started planning her 1st birthday. (It makes me want to cry just thinking about how much she's growing up)

Grace can finally roll over properly. Front to back, back to front. It's amazing. She's been doing it for a while now. One day she just could do it, and now there is no stopping her.
Crawling is still a work in progress. She shuffles backwards on her belly, and she can do 360 turns! The most movement she does is the bum shuffle, although it's not a full bum shuffle. I'm crossing my fingers that she will soon be fully on the move, however I am also dreading the fact that I while have to baby proof my whole house!


Weaning is still going amazingly well, I couldn't ask for a better eater. She really does like everything. Finger food is going slightly less better, she has tried little sandwiches, which she mushed into her high chair, among a variety of other things. …

Having A Break Is OK.

Having Grace has by far been the hardest thing I have ever had to do in my entire life, that being said it is the most rewarding, and I wouldn't change it for the world. However, and I'm sure many mums have found themselves thinking this at one time or another, I NEED A BREAK! I even feel bad just saying that, how could I possibly need a break from my own baby? What kind of mother does that make me? This past week I really have found it hard, but I have learnt that it is OK to need some time to yourself every now and again, you wouldn't be human if you didn't. Grace has been especially hard work this week, she has developed a dislike to me, yes me her mother, which makes it a million times harder to do, well anything. The only person she seems to like at the minute is her daddy, which is just too cute, but not very practical when he works all night and sleeps in the day. This is what inspired me to write this post. You will need a break every now and again, and it's ok…
