Savouring the little things

The more I experience Motherhood, the more I realise to not sweat the small stuff. In fact, it's the small stuff that brings you the most pleasure and will pass you by if you don't pay attention to it!

Crisis of confidence

With my celebration registration in hand, I've tried to bound forward in getting my business up and running. I've faced IT frustrations, insurance questions and photo nightmares, but by far the greatest hurdle is my self belief.

Unapologetic parenting

Earlier this week, a friend and I were agreeing how difficult it is to go out with our squealing babies at the moment. They don't scream, but squeal so loudly you eat quickly trying to get out as soon as you can. This article a friend posted on her blog has made me rethink my approach.

7 months

Sticky is 7 months old today. There are many things I could say about her, her milestones and all of her achievements to date. However, what I posted on Facebook this morning pretty much sums it all up:

7 months today and already my greatest teacher, clearest perspective, strongest motivation and truest love.

Food glorious food - Phase 3

Given Sticky is 7 months old tomorrow, we've moved onto the next phase of eating - new food and 3 meals a day!

Return of the squealing baby

A few months ago, you may recall me lamenting that Sticky had found her voice. Now, she's found it all over again!

Raise our babies right

A few weeks ago, I was watching an episode of Grey's Anatomy. One of the characters said, "This is the way the world changes - by good people raising their babies right." It's stuck with me ever since!

Knowing when to let go

My husband and I have been talking about when to move Sticky into her own room. I'm hesitant to do it because she still seems so little. But she'll soon be 7 months and heading off to child care. Does that make her small or does that make me want to hold onto her as long as I can?

Miss Financially Independent

I set up a bank account for Sticky today. One of the greatest lessons I've learnt as a woman is how to be financially independent and it's one I'm determined to teach her!

The arrival of the clingy baby

When I was pregnant, people told me to get a baby carrier for when the baby would become  really clingy at 6 weeks old. Sticky never did that but she's making up for it now!

Not the perfect mother

I've come to the realization I'm not the perfect Mother. And, I hate to burst your bubble but you're not either. So why do we fill ourselves with so much anxiety trying to achieve something that doesn't exist?
