We’re in February! This is my favourite month in the year because I have sooo much to be thankful for this month! This also tells me the year is well and truly under way, especially as it seems like we just celebrated Christmas!
So what’s so special about February? This post is dedicated to my new-ish readers who don’t really know much about me – yet!
When I got pregnant with Junior there were so many things I said I’d do differently, partly because I like to mix things up and experiment but also because Aj was (and will likely always be) a scapegoat our first baby so we were first time parents with rose tinted glasses and all! Now we know the truth, or at least so of it…
First of all, Happy New Year! This post should have come last year but better late than never! 🙂
We finally did a birthday party for Aj the weekend before Christmas and it went better than I expected!
I previously blogged about Nigerian vs British kids parties and I was torn on how to go about the party. I knew I wanted it to be as stress-free as possible (for me!) but for it to be fun for the kids. Hubby and I were pretty much on the same page regarding this AND maintaining a non-expensive budget too!
As the year quickly comes to an end I thought it’ll be a good idea to just say thank you to all my offline and online friends! For being there, reading, dropping comments (or not) and just sharing our lives with us. (more…)
And finally, I had a niece, thanks to my brother, Dipo and his lovely wife Tomi! I was starting to worry that Aj might be the only girl from my side of the family, but thankfully that has all changed now! I pray she is the first of many more to come too… (more…)
My little man is 6 months old today! He is such a cheeky little man and can’t believe how much I love him to bits! It’s true what they say about the heart expanding when one has more kids! You don’t love one any less than the other… It’s truly amazing!
Junior has started weaning! I haven’t been looking forward to this at all (I also dread potty training)! It is so messy and these babies are so unpredictable! I’ve promised myself I won’t put too much pressure on myself and will let the little man take the lead so we’ll see how that pans out…
Well, almost! Can’t believe Junior will be 5 months next week!
My maternity leave is slowly coming to an end… Mixed feelings really. I miss going to work (not that I’m a morning person though), tasking my brain and knowing that I’m working towards taking my career to the next level, that’s exciting for me so I’m looking forward to that! But also knowing that very soon my baby boy will be crawling and running everywhere and my cuddle time will be slashed in half… well, I don’t want to think about it!
Anyway, what has been going on here? For one thing, my folks are in town!!! Yipppeeeeee!
When I had my maternity photoshoot I signed up for two sessions, a before and after session if you like. We were supposed to have those really early baby shoots where the baby is asleep and placed in all kind of crazy cute sleeping positions but what with family, colic and baby rash it got pushed to the back seat. 4 months later we finally got around to baby shoot and the pictures are well worth it!
It’s really going to be hard to decide which will be enlarged in the near future! But here are some of my favourites from the day!
