Breastfeeding… Let’s Get Real

For the first time in my life, I have made it past three months of breastfeeding my little baby. It has not come without its struggles – trust me. With my firstborn, we struggled immensely with colic. No matter what I did with my diet, my breast milk made her sick. My milk supply was […]

Our Weekly Update! 01/07

School holidays are kicking my butt. Seriously, it’s rough out here in the wilderness guys. I love having my kids around, but it also makes me want to lock myself in the bathroom, lie in an empty bathtub and drink wine. And yes, I’ve done that. It’s my own fault, I did not plan ahead. […]

Feeling All Touched- Out

For the longest time I did not have the words to describe how I am feeling. I thought it was just my anxiety acting up, or a side-effect of PPD. But I realized what it was during this last growth spurt, as my husband handed Nova to me for what felt like the millionth time […]

Our Weekly Update 09/06

HAPPY (END OF THE) WEEKEND! Or happy almost Monday? I don’t know. Better late than never. I have had such a non-eventful week… sleeping, working, changing nappies, trying not to get poop under my fingernails and being everyone’s snack bitch. That’s about it. I wanted to get this update out into the world on Saturday, […]

Weekly Update! 01/06

HAPPY WEEKEND! Yeah, I know… It’s almost over. I am still trying to figure out how to do all of this with three kids (especially with one of them being only 9 weeks old). I hope your weekend has been amazing so far and that you get some time to fill up your metaphorical cup. Anyway, […]

Nova’s Newborn Photoshoot

I have been posting sneaky previews of Nova’s newborn photo shoot to my Instagram these past few weeks… I finally had a moment to sit and pull them together. It was supposed to be a birth photography session, but as with all our children’s births – it just did not quite go according to plan […]

Our Weekly Update!

HAPPY WEEKEND! And what a week it has been. I am pretty darn exhausted. This entire month has been challenging, with my husband being retrenched and us having to share a car for the first time since 2011! I know, first world problems. So much is changing, my anxiety and I do not like change. We […]

Nova’s Birth Story

I am 8 weeks postpartum, its 4:05 am in the morning and I felt the intense urge to pen down the newest addition to our family’s birth story. Crazy right? The thing is, I am forgetting things lately… and I want to remember this. Things happened so fast that we could not have our birth […]

32 Weeks… This Was Not Supposed To Happen

I am a NICU mom. I am a 1-in-7 statistic. Knox was born at 34 weeks, needing an oxygen machine to breathe for him and a feeding tube to sustain him. I spent night and day pumping breastmilk when I should have been rocking my baby to sleep. I was not the first person to […]
