Entertainment for days.. well multiple minutes..

Major Cities by Omy Ava is at the age where a piece of toast will occupy her long enough for me to eat breakfast.. at dinner time, a cut up banana or piece of chicken will hold her attention for at least 5 minutes as she tries to self feed herself.. it is amazing.. While…

Love lives here..

There was a time where a messy house would put me out of sorts. By out of sorts I mean, I would go commando cleaning everything up, I would probably get annoyed at my husband and say something I didn’t really mean because why..why can’t me take his shoes upstairs..For me, in my younger years,…

Bedroom Update

When Greg and I first bought our townhouse we knew we needed to cosmetically update the house- I’m talking brown walls, ceiling fans, brown tiles.. the whole lot.. Apparently the lady who lived in our house prior to us purchasing was a police officer so my guess is that she didn’t spend much time at…

Feeding Essentials

Being a first time Mum means that I am literally at the mercy of friends, family and the media to educate me on how to raise my baby. If you’re not careful you can end up spending hundreds of dollars on products that you are just not going to use. Thankfully most of the advice…

Free Weekly Printable

If you menu plan like I do (or are looking to start) you’ll more than likely need a planner to stick on your fridge or keep in your handbag! I have a magnetic one that I sometimes use, other times I print out the list and keep it in my bag incase I need to…

This too shall pass..

To all those mums out there who haven’t slept a solid 7 hours since their baby was born.. To all those mums out there comparing their child’s development accomplishments with other babies and questioning whether they are doing something wrong.. To those mums who look through their instagram feed and self doubt that they are…

Sleeping training 101

 We were blessed with a baby who loves to sleep!! From a few conversations I’ve had with friends I can see that we are really really blessed. There have been a few things we’ve done that I believe have helped with this process. I know Ava may experience some sleep regression- we’re crossing our fingers…

Mum Life Lessons

I initially thought about naming this post ‘the postpartum season- not for wimps’ but decided against it considering it wasn’t very eloquent. I’ve been “on the job” for just over 11 weeks now and I find myself conflicted most days. So.. I decided to jot down a few lessons I have learned over the past 11 weeks since becoming…

Spring Time!

When I think of spring I think of muted pinks, feminine pastels and florals.. lots and lots of floral! While I’m not rushing to bring home a floral couch (Greg would have a mini heart attack), there are ways to add touches of spring to your decor and outfits! I’m blessed that we had a…

Ava May- 7 weeks on..

We are 7 weeks into this parenting experience! I don’t think you can even call it ‘parenting’ at this age? More like, 7 weeks into the new job role of bottle feeder, burper and high-pitched laughs. Ava is growing and developing well- we had her 6 week shots last week which were terrible, but she was…

I’m thankful..

This, my friends, is a picture from my night on Thursday…I couldn’t help but feel an overwhelming sense of thankfulness as I sat on the couch with Ava asleep on my lap. Motherhood has been one learning experience after another- learning Ava’s feeding cues and distinguishing her cries, laughing over the new sounds she makes…

Mug full of goodness!

This month Freedom Furniture are donating all proceeds made from mug purchases to the Children’s Cancer Institute! I don’t think there is a more worthy occasion to hop into your local Freedom store and purchase a mug or set of mugs! We spend at least $4-$5 a few times a week on coffee, I encourage you to go in…
