Deciding To Change His Name…


This blog started off as an online diary, and has captured many milestones of Baby Z from when he was 9 months old. If only I had started it sooner, so that I had his new born moments to look back on too. Reading some of my old posts, I can’t quite believe how quickly he is growing up already. Days…

Potty Training my 2 year old son…


Since giving birth, there have been two parenting tasks that I have dreaded with a passion. The first was weaning my baby off breast milk, and the second was Potty Training.

The Third Trimester…


The start of third trimester meant preparations, preparations and preparations! This included shopping for baby things (my husband went overboard and bought 2 baby leather jackets for ages 1 and 2!!!), getting the hospital bag ready, the baby cot from Ikea constructed in our room and reading up on lots and lots of labour stories. Oh and also watching endless…

The Second Trimester…


The next couple of months were simply the best. I had a lovely neat bump which I adored and I was still at that stage where I could do things with reasonable comfort. Que the date nights with Hubby! It was our chance to bond and enjoy a baby free life before our bundle of joy arrived, and I am…
