🖤 Black Lives Matter 🖤 The past few days we have seen everyone sharing, learning, trying to be better, educating themselves, donating and striving to change the world we live in but we need to keep going. We need to create a better world for our children where it doesn’t matter what the colour of your skin is. I have absolutely no idea what it’s like to go through everyday being judged because of what you look like and will not pretend to understand, but I’m committed to trying to help. It’s not enough to not be racist, we need to be anti-racist. I will continue to share helpful information and ways we can all help on my stories so please keep checking if like me you are wanting to help in anyway we can.
Is there anything cuter than a draw full of baby girl clothes? 💫 The contrast between what Matilda’s draws look like compared to mine is a true representation of how much effort I put into her outfits compared to my own. I’m currently in the process of buying all the next size up clothes and sorting through all the items that no longer fit her, which just feels like a never ending process 🤍 I am excited for all the cute little summer rompers and dresses though and wish they all came in adult size. If you’re looking g for adorable little girl clothes, I got the cutest little items from @jojomamanbebe and @nextofficial recently, and as always @boden_clothing have some adorable pieces. #babygirl #babyessentials #babydraw #babyrattle #3littlecrowns #jojomamanbebe #jellycatbunny #babyclothes #babygirlclothes #momlife #mamalife #mummyblogger #mummysgirl
Little picnic with my bestie 💕 Is anyone else’s baby just obsessed with socks?! If Matilda see’s a pair she will dart across the room to get them and then hold onto them so tightly. I love watching her little personality and quirks develop, it’s probably one of my favourite things about motherhood. Along with staring at her chubby cheeks of course 🤍 #babygirl #10monthsold #babies #babiesofinsta #babiesofinstagram #babiesbabiesbabies #jojomamanbebe #mumlife #mamalife #mamatribe
I feel ya babes 💤 After chatting to a couple of other mums, it seems like everyone’s little ones are waking up super early at the moment. Even with black out blinds it’s like their body knows it’s bright outside and therefore, time to start the day. Our wake ups are averaging around 5/5.30am at the moment and then the rest of the day is thrown off because Matilda is so tired 🙈As with anything though, I know this is just a phase and will pass and we just need to ride it out. So hang on in there if you’re currently living on coffee, because I’m right there with you! ☕️ #mamalife #mumlife #newmama #mummyblogger #sleepingbaby #babiesofinstagram #babiesofinsta
We’re finally back in London after weeks away from home 🇬🇧 I’ll be honest, it was a huge adjustment coming back home after so long away. We basically hadn’t seen anyone for 9 weeks and our surroundings were complete countryside in the middle of nowhere, so being smack bang in the middle of the city was a shock to all of us. Matilda didn’t remember our home so it took a little while for her to adjust, but now after a couple of days she’s loving exploring all the nooks and crannies of our flat and playing with her toys. I’m also feeling so much better now that I’ve had chance to unpack and organise. I’m someone that likes everything to be organised straight away and hate things being all over the places I knew as soon as I felt sorted I would feel so much better. I hope you’re all doing okay during this crazy time as I know a lot of us are finding ourselves in unfamiliar situations and having to adapt very quickly. #londonlife #mummyblogger #newmum #londonmum #lockdownlife #mamalife #mamatribe #motherly #motherhoodrising
It’s going to be a hot one today - sun hats and sunglasses at the ready! 😎 Our plans today include spending as much time in the garden as possible with a make shift paddling pool and hopefully ending in some pimms or gin and tonic 🌿 #motherdaughter #motherlylove #motherly #summertime #sleepingbaby #mamalife #mummyblogger #mumlife #mamatribe #hmxme #hmkids #babiesbabiesbabies
Things we didn’t realise about sleep until we had a baby 💫 1. You can survive for months on broken sleep. You might feel like your brain doesn’t work any more but you’ll survive. 2. Babies go through sleep regressions ALL THE TIME! 3. Sometimes your little one will wake up at 4am for no good reason (like this morning) 4. You can feel like you’ve go naps and bedtime nailed and then BAM a regression hits. 5. Timing naps is a a whole science in it’s own. 6. There’s no justice in a 30 minute nap. It’s only JUST enough time to tidy and make a cup of tea. 7. Who knew that if babies were overtired they sleep less? 8. Your baby will sleep through an atomic bomb, but you sit down on that sofa and they’re awake! 9. Even when they do start sleeping through the night you’ll wake up waiting for them to wake up. 10. Our brains are programmed to overthink when we become mothers so napping when the baby sleeps is impossible. What are yours? #motherhood #motherly #mamalife #newmama #sleepregression #babysleeping #mamatribe #mumlife
