Our Weaning Journey with Mamamade 

Mamamade weaning

We’re in full swing weaning with our second daughter Ottie at the moment, but to be honest, I wasn’t really looking forward to it.  Weaning was not my favourite time with our eldest daughter Eva. I really loved preparing the food for her and had so much fun making a mess! But she had multiple…

Home Tour: The Playroom

We’re really lucky to have enough space in our house for Eva and Ottie to have a playroom. It was definitely not an essential when we were looking to move, but was definitely a nice to have. In our old house the living room was starting to resemble Toys…

Home Tour: The Kitchen

The kitchen diner is where we spend most of our time, it’s such a great room. It’s a multi functional space with kitchen, dining area and living room area that leads straight onto the patio in the garden so it’s perfect for life with two small people. I’m so…

Ottie’s Birth Story

This post has been in my Notes since the week Ottie was born but I’ve kept it squirrelled away there until I’ve had time (and mental strength) to read it back and share it. I found my pregnancy with Ottie much harder than with Eva, I had very similar…

Home Tour: The Living Room

I’ve been meaning to share more of our home for months now but time seems to fly by so to give myself some focus, I thought I’d start a blog series with a look into each room. I’m kicking it off with the living room for no other reason…

Making Mealtimes Easy with Mamamade

Mealtimes are generally chaotic in our house. A wild toddler with a penchant for changing her taste every week is tricky enough but adding a newborn into the mix has turned them up to 11.

Our days are a whirlwind, during the week Ottie and I pick Eva up from…

Merry and Bright Christmas Garland DIY

I’m still a good four more mince pies and at least two viewings of Love Actually away from feeling fully festive but I’m getting there slowly! Eva has been asking if it’s Christmas every morning for approximately 7 weeks now so I thought adding a little Christmas cheer would…

DIY Halloween Velvet Pumpkins

It’s beginning to look a lot like… Halloween! The leaves are starting to fall, our list of scary films to watch is growing longer and spooky season is well and truly here.

Things are a little bit different here this year with Ottie’s arrival a couple of weeks ago. Because…

What to pack in your hospital bag: A checklist

I’ve been putting it off for weeks but I’ve finally taken the plunge and started to order a few things for my hospital bag ready for the new baby’s arrival. I’m a little bit paranoid I’m going to go into labour early and that it will be a speedy…
