An insight into my two girls



I really love this photo that my wonderful husband took of me with our two girls.













Had to share this one of our baby sucking her toes. Brings a smile to my face everytime I look at it :)














Thought I would share a bit about the girls birth stories. I do enjoy hearing about birth stories even if does make me even more clucky.

Amelia was born in 2006, a planned home birth, and is turning 3 in Sept, I honestly can't believe my little baby is nearly 3! She is excited to be having a party but not too sure what we are doing for her. My 1st attempt was shocking! I burnt the bottoms of the cupcakes, and her cake wasn't cooked properly (ovens fault...I swear!) and fell to bits when I tried getting it out of the tin. So we had to do a mad rush to the bakery for one which meant Daddy couldn't eat it.

Kiya was born in 2009, should have been another home birth but unfortunately everything conspired against it, she was almost a road side baby but we made it to the maternity unit with about 5 mins to spare. At 5 months, Kiya is a big baby (I don't do small babies it would seem) already 67cm long so almost in size 0-size 1 clothes and is 7kg already so that means medium nappies - just another excuse to buy more nappies haha!

Did your birth go according to plan?

Petit - Big Luxury for Little Kids


The lush top quality products of the Petit range include Petit Enfant - for babies & toddlers; Petit Amour - for girls; and Petit Prince - for boys. Attractively packaged and afordably priced, the Petit range is soap-free, ph neutral and enriched with nourishing vegetable oils and plant xtracts - now even the littles individuals can experience luxury, decadence and quality!

I just love the Petit Prince range as it is not very often you find things just for the boys. Petit Prince gives even the most macho of boys, the opportunity to get into good grooming habits and develop their personal hygiene regime. The stars of the Petit Prince range are its colognes - designed specifically with active boys in mind, these refreshing fragrances provide the perfect balance of zest and fragrance. No more drowning in dad's aftershave! With attractive, masculine and classic packaging, your little man is sure to love using these products.
