Motherhood

For as long as I can remember I have always dreamed of becoming a Mum, and having a large family... I loved watching The Waltons as a child and loved the idea of having a busy household with kids running around.I soon learned nothing is that simple as they often make it out to be..at 20 yrs old I was devastated to be told I had severe PCOS & would never have a family unless I had fertility treatment. I held it together in the appointment and once I got home and had to break the news to my Fiance (who is now my husband!)  I completely broke down...my dreams shattered. It was a very dark time but my other half stuck by me and we eventually got married a few years later. After a magical honeymoon we came home mentally prepared to start fertility treatment to see if we could ever get our dream of becoming parents. After 4 cycles we were over the moon to discover we were pregnant with our longed for baby.The moment I held my son I finally understood a " mothers love" it was t…

In & out all day long...

As many of you already know Faith has been wearing her hearing aids since she was 10wks old. It became a part of her routine everyday that they were put on in the morning when dressed and removed at night before bedtime or occasionally during the day for certain reasons like feeding or swimming. Every appointment we went to we were asked if she was tolerating them and we always said that she wasn't fazed by them. The only issue we had was stopping them falling off so we were recommended the headbands which are fantastic in keeping them in the right position.

We have had some scary moments were she has managed to get the ear mould into her mouth and choked. I have to watch her like a hawk and if we are in the car she can no longer…

Becoming a big kid...

Losing your first tooth is a huge milestone as its a sign you are becoming a big kid! Well that day came on Saturday for Roo! 
We were told at a dentist appointment back in Nov/ Dec that he had a wobbly tooth so we waited with bated breath to see how it would all unfold as we were unsure how he would react...fast forward 3 mths, he started to wince when eating & wouldn't let us check in his mouth to see if there was anything to be seen..it wasn't until when I noticed he would only bite his food with the side of his mouth instead of the front and I realised it was the wobbly tooth!! 
But it proved to be quite stubborn and would not budge. On Saturday Roo woke up in one of his moods, very emotional, crying at the slightest thing, unable to tolerate much so the guessing game was on to try and work out what was wrong as he was unable to tell us. Gave him some crusty bread for dinner as he hasn't been eating very well recently and I knew he would eat that and at the end hi…
