Just a Mamma Keeping track of baby's 1st year

We are all part of the visual era and with so many #instagood and Pinterest perfect ideas on how to document baby’s first year in the prettiest and most unique way it’s super easy to get carried away. This 3rd time around I certainly did… With Eliana I just took a photo every month. With Lia I used a blackboard and monthly stickers. I still love her photo series (see it here), but storing the massive blackboard for a year…

Just a Mamma Letter to a one year old

Here we are, one year after the 1st moment I held you, the 1st time I heard your voice and the 1st instance I looked into your big, beautiful eyes. So many things have happened and changed over the past 12 months and although it sounds like a decent amount of time, it actually went by in a flash. Our tiny, fragile baby girl that slept for hours on end has become a bubbly, feisty toddler crawling wherever she likes,…

What Ava really thought about her half birthday photoshoot

January 9, 2018

It’s a little tradition that in the past have always involved food seeing as 6 months was the time we introduced solids to Eliana and Lia. Ava has however happily been enjoying food for a month but we like the tradition and thought a watermelon cake would be clever. I had it…

Turning 3 and it’s all about me!

October 2, 2017

3 It’s always been a favourite of mine… 13 Feb 2003 – the day I met Mr. Perfect, October 3rd – our wedding anniversary, also the amount of little ladies we currently have and 3, the age of our middle little. Isn’t 3 just the cutest? We’re past the hard work of those 1st few years and everyone survived the “terrible twos”… no more bottles, diapers, no trying to decipher the wants and needs of a 3 foot dictator. Yes, 3…

The birth of Ava Loïs

September 6, 2017

Today our Ava is two months old. I celebrate by sharing her birth story.

So here goes… Being my 3rd Caesarean section you’d think I’d be calm, knowing what to expect and ready for the day. This however was not the case. I felt more nervous and anxious than ever before. The knowledge of…
