Wide Awake Club

I’m a sadist. I quite enjoy the 4am feeds as they’ve become my time to surf the web, catch up on some reading and checking my twitter and instagram feeds without feeling guilty that I’m not giving my full attention to both babies. I do, of course, like the soft baby cuddles with Blake and … Continue reading

Ever Changing Body

Ah pregnancy, possibly the most amazing and wonderful time of your life, but sadly this is something most women don’t realise until it’s over. It’s hard to keep up with the many changes of my pregnant body and I’ll be the first one to say I really don’t cope well for 9 months. I’m forever … Continue reading
