Good morning! It’s the start of the weekend and half term, and we’re having a little toad trip to Yorkshire to spend the afternoon with friends (there’s food, catch ups and a hot tub involved) and I’m also tying in a visit to see my Dad (still in hospital but hopefully getting well enough to be moved to start rehabilitation). Enjoy yours, whatever you’re doing 😊
#AD • It’s a bright one today! I’m looking forward to half term, the first time I have been off for this one with Ethan and of course I will have the two boys to entertain for the first time solo... eek! We’re going to be heading to @intumerryhill on Tuesday to see a certain bear who’s quite partial to a spot of marmalade... 🐻 🍊 Paddington will be making an appearance at the shopping centre between 11am and 3pm, so we’re going along to meet him and do a spot of shopping too, as there’s something to keep all of us happy (namely Disney Store for Ethan!) 🛍 Also, theres a great offer on for families, where Paddington teddies will be given away to the first 200 people who sign up to the intu Family Club during Feb half term (Mon 18-Fri 22) 🌟 Loads of benefits to being a member (exclusive offers and discounts, a gift for your little one, a membership pack, a magazine and much more) so another great reason to add a visit to your must-do list next week 👍 #intumerryhill #intufamilyclub #paddingtoniscoming #februaryhalfterm #daysoutwithkids

We went to a maths class at Ethan’s school this afternoon and Sullivan causes quite the stir! I wore him with my @ergobabyuk wrap for ease and all the kids wanted to stroke him 🥰 #babywearingmama #notanad

Eight weeks in and I need a pick me up - or a full nights’ sleep 😂 But this #gifted skincare find is working a bit of magic for this tired mama and her tired skin 🌟 It’s @generationskincare face and skin serum and I have no obligation to share this with you here / but I am because I am completely blown away by this product. It’s made a huge difference to the texture and appearance of my skin and had really helped me reclaim a little bit of a glow 💁🏼♀️ It contains Vitamin C, Hyaluronic Acid and Vitamin E and is meant to reduce fine lines, help with acne and scarring and keeps your skin hydrated, making it a great base for make up. Trust me, this is absolutely brilliant and a little will go a long way so when it does eventually run out, I’ll be buying more for sure (available from Amazon). I really do think it has helped give me a healthy looking complexion (second photo, no filter - yes, I’m wearing make up but I think you can tell my skin is pretty good underneath the foundation).
E I G H T W E E K S O L D • This little chap is eight weeks old today and has just been brave at his first round of immunisations 👊 Of course, he cried at the time but settled and these pics were taken as we got home, and he’s sleeping on me now, so he’s doing well so far. He’s a thoughtful one, our Sulley Bear, and still seems to be figuring us all out. His arrival feels like forever ago but then at the same time, we are still getting to know each other and find our groove. The milestone card pictured is from @nestedfox and was #gifted as we’re excited to become #brandpartner with this fab company 🌟 These milestone cards are beautifully illustrated and cover all key milestones from waiting for baby to all the ‘firsts’, and a few others that you can fill in yourself, like this one ☝🏻 They have some lovely things in their range so we’re looking forward to sharing more from #nestedfox over the months ahead 🦊
When you’re the littlest in the family, and your Mama and big brother won’t leave you alone... 😂
