I’ve written about all of the stages of my pregnancy and birth with E, but because I started this blog when my boys were one I’ve never published their birth story before. I felt it was about time I did.I’ve said on here before that I had quite a tough time towards the end of my twin pregnancy as at around 37 weeks I was diagnosed with obstetric cholestasis and pre-eclampsia and this resulted in me having problems during my C-section. This is the story of how my wonderful boys arrived into the . . . Keep Reading
Baby led weaning – ideas for first foods and how to combine it with spoon feeding
The last few weeks have flown by. E has been turning into a chunky little girl - you know, the kind of baby with podgy legs that you just want to chew on and a tummy that needs to have raspberries blown on it. She wants to roll around everywhere and when she sets her sights on something she squeals in frustration if she can't get to it and put it in her mouth straight away.

Potty training twins: Success at last!
Wohoo - potty training is finally complete! (I talked about potty training phase one , phase two, potty training regression and potty training again last year).

The best things about having a newborn baby…
It's amazing how quickly you forget so many of the precious things about having a newborn baby. I wish E could stay this little for at least another year, but already she is on her third round of clothes changes. I can't bear to part with one of her little pink 0 - 3 month dresses - each time I put her in it I tell her that this will be the last time before I pack it away as it's too short now. Then, after it's been washed, I sneak it back into her drawer again, instead of adding it to the pile . . . Keep Reading
