Costa's first birthday in pictures (38)

Costa’s first birthday in pictures

L ast weekend we had a small celebration for Costa’s birthday. My thinking was if you can’t go a bit bananas for at least one birthday, when can you?! I also imagine that next year and in years to follow I’ll likely be competing with Paw Patrol, Peppa Pig or some other toddler favourite for decorative control so […]

9 months to 9 months +

Costa, 9 months on

I remember when someone first told me how 8 months was such a lovely age and I just smiled and nodded without ever really knowing why! It wasn’t until we closed in on 9 months (last week) that I felt like there was a shift. In fact for whatever reason 9 months felt (and still feels) like […]

Pregnancy thoughts at 34 weeks
