One whole year of our perfect boy

So the wee man is one.  And boy has that flown in.  All the early photos of him have been popping up on my Timehop this week and it has taken me right back to his first week.  That week when we didn’t know whether or not he had Down’s Syndrome and we feared the… Continue reading One whole year of our perfect boy

Hilarity and not so hairy Huxley

Last week we were keeping up with the Jolly Jones’, who were up staying with us from London(ish) for a few days.  Poor Daddy Jones got more than he bargained for!  I had fed Daisy lunch and, after an hour and a half, had assumed we were out of the danger zone and popped her… Continue reading Hilarity and not so hairy Huxley

And the Bad Mummy Award goes to…

Today I have had an absolute shocker.  I am seriously hoping it is the baby brain.  This morning, I took Daisy and Huxley to Baby Sensory and then went for our usual brunch with friends at our very favourite lunch spot, The Hideaway.  I always order Huxley the soup as it is usually dairy free.… Continue reading And the Bad Mummy Award goes to…
