Siblings in August


I've given up trying to get these photos up on time for the Siblings linky.. it just aint happening! I am however trying to at least get them up within the month and so here I am with 1 day left of August and I've finally managed to take them..talk about last minute!

I'd be lying if I said this has been a great month for these two. Archers been especially challenging with his teething recently and it's stirred up a fair bit of resentment in Lily of late. I can't say I blame her as he's had her up every night with his screaming for the last few weeks and during the day he hasn't been much better. She just puts her hands over her ears when he's upset and says 'No Archer I don't like that noise!' We've tried telling her that he's just in pain with her teeth and crying is the only way he has to express it right now but she's 3 and we don't really expect her to 'get it.'

Toddler Style in August


It's been ages since I've done an outfit post and I want to get back in to it again because I love writing about clothes! This weekend I'll just be focusing on what Lily's wearing though as Archers been ill with a v+d bug and has been in nothing exciting. 

The weathers been on and off this week but we did have one day of really hot sunshine so I took the opportunity to put Lily in one of her new dresses. This particular dress I bought in H&M last week and I adore.

My Productive Working Environment at Home


I would so so love to have my own in home office for my blogging but unfortunately our house just isn't big enough for one. It's disappointing but doesn't mean that I can't create my own working environment using the space I have available, which is exactly what I've done.

I decided that our bedroom would be the best place to create a working space and to be honest it didn't take very long to set up at all.

Archers Six Month Update


Here we are halfway through your first year of life Archer, it's gone so fast! 6 months comes with so many milestones - weaning, sitting, speech development and I can't believe we're at this stage already.

We started weaning Arch at exactly 6 months and I feel like since we started weaning him he's been a lot happier in general. He's loving finger foods, mainly toast, cucumber and pitta bread although he's been a bit iffy with the purees and has basically been shuddering and spitting it out up until today when he did a 360, finally deciding he liked it and grabbing the spoon off me to put it in himself!

Weekend Watch - 30.7.16


This week has been so much fun! James has had it booked off work for a while and whilst we couldn't do everything we had planned on our to do list thanks to the weather (bye bye seaside!) we still managed to fit a lot in to the few days of sun we did have.

Siblings in July


It is SO HARD to get a decent sibling photo these days let me tell you! I'm hoping it gets easier when Archer starts sitting up so I can just sit them next to each other because this month I was about ready to give up let me tell ya. I attempted to have Lily holding Arch but he's just too freaking heavy and they toppled over after about 30 seconds ha, Then I tried lying them next to each other but Lily kept getting annoyed at Archer who kept kicking her and so I called it a day! In the end I actually ended up preferring just casual ones I took of Arch in his walker with Lily in the background and so I've put them in too.
