Our Favourite Books

My mum read to me from been born and as a child I had the wildest imagination. My parents used to laugh because I was such a creative storyteller and they were convinced that one day I’d write books. I vividly remember some of the strange stories I played as a youngster and the imaginary games I used to come with. As an adult, I could always see what a massive investment reading to a child could be and although I never knew I was going to have children, I did know that when I did, that we would read…

Sponsored | myHummy Sleeping Aid Review

After the four month sleep regression, Edie and Mabel were brilliant sleepers. We have a really lovely hour’ish long routine where they start by having a bath at 6pm, pj’s and a bottle by 6.30pm and go down to sleep awake but drowsy in their own cots by 7pm.

People keep saying to me that time flies by once you have babies and they can’t believe how quickly the past year has gone since I had Edie and Mabel.

The girls started to sit up on their own shortly after our holiday…

They say time speeds up when you have children and it is so true – what a whirlwind of a year it’s been! Although Edie and Mabel are too young to understand ‘birthdays,’ we still wanted to mark the occasion, more so for their little cousins. We didn’t want to go crazy, so we just invited some family over for a barbecue and crossed our fingers the weather would be ok. Turns out the weather was on our side! We didn’t go crazy with the presents and bought the girls memory cases. I asked all their cousins to draw pictures…

Identical Twin Diaries | Eleven (and a half) Months Old

Next week, the girls turn one… it feels like only yesterday I found out I was pregnant! I had a little read over one of my early twin diary posts when they were only five weeks old and I couldn’t believe how much things have changed. I look back now and I’m actually pretty proud of how chilled out I managed to stay through those first few early weeks.
