Belle and Heath can be as different as night and day sometimes but one thing they have in common is that they both know how to wind me up! Once they have succeeded, they give me the cutest smile and all is forgiven 😉
Take Heath in the vlog below for example, he knows how to say Mamma but he insists on saying Dadda because he finds it hilarious. I am constantly amazed at how, at nearly 15 months, he has already learned how to influence the people around him. He tries to make me laugh, he shows empathy if someone is feeling sad and I especially love how, when he is throwing a tantrum, he can’t resist peeking to make sure you are watching him!
Belle is still full of energy at the moment and although I wouldn’t say she is being a naughty girl, she is definitely testing my patience. She has always been such a good girl and we never really had the terrible twos, threes etc. Whatever we had lasted about a week and it was either when she was particularly exhausted from a new nursery routine or if she was slightly under the weather.
Currently, she seems particularly clingy and whingey. She gets tearful at the thought of being left at nursery and complains if she has to eat lunch there if her best friend doesn’t. She argues every little thing even if she agrees with you, she will argue the opposite. But I know I am grumbling the little things as really, she is such a happy go lucky girl and I am eternally thankful to be her Mum. Every night I kiss and cuddle her before bed and she looks so sweet and content, I truly feel blessed.
I hope you enjoy this Day In The Life vlog. I loved capturing this moment in our lives on film. I know I will watch it time and again in the future. Let me know if you like it too. Bx
As the weather has turned cold and rainy recently, I’ve been looking at my wardrobe and thinking that it definitely needs a revamp. My Autumn or Winter selection of postpartum clothes is tired and just doesn’t fit as well as it used to. I have been looking at the lovely new range of mummy and baby clothes that are beginning to fill the stores and chosen some of my favourites for the upcoming seasons.
1. corduroy pinafore dress 2. triangle print leggings 3. white stripe wrap shirt 4. suede ankle boots 5. embellished vest
This adorable corduroy pinafore dress from Zara would be perfect for Annabelle with pastel pink tights and some little black boots. I have never bought any clothes from Zara before but I really like this and these cute little triangle print leggings for Heath. A lot of bloggers, like Hannah Maggs and Anna Saccone have bought their sons Zara leggings so I thought I’d take a look at what they have online.
For myself I have chosen this white stripe wrap shirt. I find the clothes in River Island can be a bit hit or miss with me. I like quite a few Autumn and Winter tops at the moment because they look tailored but not too formal for everyday wear. You also can’t go wrong with monochrome.
My footwear collection has definitely seen better days and I don’t really feel like living in my Ugg boots again this year so I have chosen these suede ankle boots from ASOS. The heel is not too high and at £40, it is a bit of a steal!
Finally, I really like this green embellished vest. I find this colour really flattering on me but I don’t have much in my wardrobe that is this colour. Oasis is one of my absolute favourite clothing stores pre and post baby.
