June was a very busy month for us, but we loved every single minute of it! As my nephew made his début appearance into this world, we had to attend his naming ceremony up in Scotland as is tradition. It was a long drive about 5.5 hours, Anjie was a darling, most of the time, but we still had to make a several stops when she started getting cranky.
That’s the new mummy and daddy in native Yoruba attire!
So this past week has been a lovely week for my family! Not only was it my boo’s birthday, but we also welcomed a new member to my family! I am now an aunty for the second time! And of course, lets not forget it was Father’s day too!
I’m still trying to get back into blogging but it’s hard! There’s just not enough hours in the day… But we’ll get there! In the meantime, I have definitely been very picture happy, so I’ll be making up with loads of them!
We’ve go another Omoniyi baby in the family! That’s another little cousin for Anjie to play with when the young man gets older. Congrats to you guys once again if you’re reading this! So while we were meeting baby Omoniyi, Anjie also caught up with JJ! Now that was funny to watch, they were playing together and running after each other, well running and crawling… And singing
I’m hoping I won’t need to do this any time soon but just in case I do, where better to bookmark it then on my blog…

Yes! My first nephew and second grandchild in the family, Jay-jay is a month old today!!
Although Jay-jay was a tad bit early (6 weeks to be exact), he’s proving there’s no stopping him! His growing everyday and delighting his mummy, daddy and grandparents non-stop! Although, his apparently giving them some sleepless nights already! The cheeky little man!
We’ll just So thankful to God for all He has done and what He will continue to do! I just can’t wait to meet and give Baby Joisah a big massive Aunty cuddle! And I bet his cousin Anjie can’t wait to meet him either! Hopefully in a few months! Can’t wait…
In the meantime, we’ll just have to make do with pictures instead, and yes, I have gotten consent! Isn’t he just a cutie!
I came across this article on breastfeeding from a newborn baby’s POV and found it quite enlightening and interesting. Wish I had read this before I started breastfeeding because there were days I felt like my milk supply just wasn’t enough and it was hard! I talked about it in a previous post here. And like the article said my mum always suggested I include some formula as that’s what she did with all of us. But in the end it’s working out fine for everyone…
Hope you enjoy the read!
Newborn Baby explains normal behaviour
Caroline, one of my dear readers (;-)) recently made a comment about her best baby buy and got me thinking about what ours was! After much thinking and pondering, I’ll have to say it has to be our AngelCare Sensory Mat and Baby Monitor!
So my folks left at the beginning of the week. I can’t say it has been a walk in the park… We’ve had some good days and not so good days (or rather nights!) with the little madam! But like my mum says ‘everyday is plus one’. She won’t always be like this, – not sleeping through the night, or eating every 2-3 hours – infact there will come a time when she will be almost too independent! So take it easy!
So remember I said I was going to get a Victoria Sling Lady baby sling? Well it came in the post and I have to say Anjie and I are absolutely loving it!
The Victoria Sling Lady Sling (VSLS from now on!) is pretty simple and cheap! Infact it is so simple you wonder why I didn’t think of that! (to be fair back home in Nigeria we carry our babies on our back with a large piece of cloth, I just don’t have the guts or know-how to do it!). I got if off EBay for £15 and it’s well worth it especially when my mum leaves this weekend…
So my booboo turned 5 weeks this week! She’s growing bigger and bigger and can officially be called an ‘orobo’ which means ‘fat person’ in Yoruba but in this case we’ll go for chubby baby
After about two weeks of battling baby acne, it is clearing up, thank God! Went to the doctors on Thursday and they gave us Oilatum Junior Moisturising cream and Bathing liquid to use twice a day and whenever we bath her and I’ve already started seeing improvements! Her skin is not as dry as it used to look so they means it’s working well! Hopefully before the week runs out she’ll have the skin of well, a baby again! Continue reading
