DIY sensory bottles

April 23rd, 2014|Categories: diy|Tags: , , , |31 Comments

A little while ago I posted about some things I had made up for Chloe to help her wind down from school as she was struggling a little and was over tired. One of the things I made her was a sensory bottle, much like the ‘time out jar’ filled with glitter that I had seen on pinterest. Chloe’s is filled with pretty little beads and gems, sequins and glittler for her to shake and watch everything settle back down while chilling out.When I made Chloe’s I thought I’d make one for Noah as […]

:: well hello there ::

February 25th, 2014|Categories: Uncategorized|Tags: , , , , |13 Comments

Well hello there!! – it’s been a while since I’ve posted here.I lost my mojo for blogging somewhere. I’m not sure exactly where, or why, or how. But I guess it happens sometimes! Especially when life is busy.And especially when you have a baby that doesn’t sleep. Really doesn’t sleep. Currently we are lucky to get a 2 hour stretch overnight.During the day? If not in a pram being pushed around – 30 minutes is about our maximum. BUT I know it’s just a phase. (please let it be just a phase) And that it will get better.Meanwhile […]

a few of my favourite {baby} things

January 15th, 2014|Categories: Uncategorized|Tags: , |1 Comment

Hi everyone!I am often asked what I am loving in terms of baby products this time around and so thought I’d share my top 5-6 with you every few months. Here is the first instalment that covers a few things we are loving in the first few months of Owen’s life. In addition to these things, we are also still absolutely loving our video baby monitor which is a Uniden Baby Watch and I couldn’t live without our capsule/infant carrier for the car and pram. This is the first time I’ve had one for one […]

Hi guys!This giveaway is now closed! Congratulations to Allison A and Carlene D!This is one of my all time favourite baby items! We have been using ergoCocoons from ergoPouch since Chloe and I really wish they had been around or I had known about them when Noah was a bub!Noah liked being swaddled until I couldn’t find any muslin wraps that would fit around my nine month old! The transition to a sleeping bag for Noah was pretty hard as he just didn’t like having his arms out. Chloe was very much the same and […]

what my babies have taught me

November 4th, 2013|Categories: A Little Delightful|Tags: , , , |5 Comments

Before I was a mother, I dreamt of what it would be like to raise a family. I imagined beautiful days filled with baking and crafting and reading on the couch.I would tear pages out of my mum’s magazines when I would find a fun craft idea or decorating tip or delicious recipe to stash away for when I had children. {old fashioned pinterest!} I honestly thought I was prepared for motherhood before I actually had a baby- turns out nothing really prepares you for it, having children has been the biggest learning curve of […]

Owen’s dreamy cloud nursery

October 7th, 2013|Categories: diy|Tags: , , , , |24 Comments

Finally I’ve had some time to sit down and share Owen’s dreamy cloud nursery with you all! I was so excited to share this with you and had hoped to share shortly after I shared his little nook in our bedroom but then he arrived and things have been pretty crazy since then :o}At first we weren’t going to find out girl or boy so we chose an aqua and white colour theme as a neutral starting point for the nursery. I had planned on adding in some yellow and blue or green for […]

Now – now it’s been 7 weeks since our gorgeous beautiful Owen joined our family earthside and I had hoped to come on here and record a weekly diary of sorts of what it’s been like so far […]

meeting Owen

August 29th, 2013|Categories: A Little Delightful|Tags: , |18 Comments

Hi everyone!This post has been sitting in my drafts folder now for two weeks. I can’t quite believe how fast that time has flown! We are certainly in a beautiful newborn baby blur.Our gorgeous baby boy Owen joined us two weeks ago. As soon as I heard his little cry and held him in my arms I couldn’t stop crying happy tears – he was here! The whole pregnancy had felt a little surreal and sometimes I still couldn’t believe that we even had a baby on the way. But when he was placed on […]
