We’ve arrived in Queenstown! How cute is this AirBnB that we are staying at?! It’s a converted old school house that’s been beautifully renovated with so much charm. Wana take a peek inside?! 👀 Come join us on my stories for a little tour of the place 👆
I’ll eat you eat I love you so! 👑 Oh Arlo I have an idea what if you never grow up?! 😭🤗 I constantly go between wanting you to stay my baby forever to being excited about all our adventures together and the amazing things you will do in this life! 💛
The blossoms are out in London and it’s got me feeling all nostalgic, this time last year I was playing under the blossoms and wisteria with Arlo in my tummy! 📷 @kearaellen
Last year, in New Zealand 137 young people died by suicide and it’s estimated another 3500 attempted to take their own lives. In NZ it can take kids up to 6 months to receive the counselling they need. Having depression is like walking through the mud every day. Today kiwis are getting together to show their support by putting on a pair of gumboots, giving a gold coin donation and taking a walk in their shoes for a day. It’s a fun way for kiwis to join in the conversation about mental health. Gumboot up New Zealand! Especially if you look this cute in gumboots 😏 #gumbootfriday #gumbootupnz
Did you see the news? We’re here to stay NZ! (for now 😝) So, Jake and I don’t fight a lot but there’s one thing we always disagree on...where to live?! He’s a country guy and I’m more a city gal! But if I’m honest, it truly doesn’t matter where we live, just as long as we are together. My home is not a place, it’s a person...well two people, Jake and Arlo. My family are my home 💛
Big life update on the blog today....we’ve moved...Again!! I know it seems like we can’t sit still! Hello Wairarapa! Our new home, I cant wait to show you all there is to do, eat, see here starting with a coastal road trip to Cape Palliser, where you can climb a lighthouse, watch a seal colony and enjoy the non-stop views! ➡️ www.jessieandjake.com #wairarapa
Twinning with my little man 👯♀️ He’s probably gonna look back at these photos one day and think, mum and I look so cool in our matching outfits OR gosh what was mum thinking?! 🤣🤦🏻♀️🙈
Let the wild rumpus start! This wild one has already mastered the art of crawling and is now standing up on everything! Trying to hold on to every moment and milestone but this guy is growing up so fast! Weren’t you a sleepy newborn like, yesterday?!
Did you see I’ve added a playtime onto my story highlights?! 👀 So you can see all the fun that Arlo and I get up to and also get some play ideas for your little one! This play gym also featured on my latest blog post about my favourite baby products. At bargain of a price from Kmart I might add! Hands up if you love Kmart too! 🙌🙌🙌
Arlo and I never really got ‘that’ moment after he was born it all went so fast and was a bit of a blur. I had to have emergency surgery after haemorrhaging and was wheeled off to surgery rather fast. I had my placenta surgically removed along with repairing a cervical tear and a 3rd degree perineal tear 😣 It was all pretty traumatic and upsetting but it wasn’t till they wheeled me into recovery and Arlo was put back on my chest that we got our proper moment. I finally had my baby boy on my chest right where he was suppose to be. This photo is not amazing quality but I can never look at it without getting teary eyed.

I’d marry you all over again if I could.....oh wait I do nearly ever year 😝🤣 I’ve subjected my Husband to so many photo shoots.
