Little Leather: Silver Moccs

Now that Nyla has discovered the joy of walking, she doesn’t want to be carried and prefers to walk everywhere. So I’ve been researching the right shoes – shoes which aren’t restrictive and suitable for toddlers who are still learning to walk properly and prone to falling. Leather moccasins (moccs) for babies/toddlers are all the […]

Cool stuff for kids: Rock & Pebble Apple and Pear Houses

I never had a dollhouse growing up. Probably because I was content with making do with draping a sheet over the dining table and thus creating a cubby house for myself and my dolls/stuffed animals.

Labour…so what is it really like?

Can you believe it was nearly a year ago when I gave birth to Nyla? This is a long post so I hope you are comfortable with a cup of tea… I remember the time when first pregnant I laid my eyes on those double lines on the test. Trembling, I was both excited beyond belief but […]

Dear Baby: Nyla at 6 months

Dear Nyla You are now 6 months and officially have reached your ‘half-way’ birthday – which is amazing considering it feels like I was pregnant only 5 minutes ago. I thought the baby stage went by quickly for Lily, but yours seems to be zooming past at light speed. You have now moved into your […]

My monthly letters to Nyla during her first year Dear baby, It sounds like an excuse but it really did get quite busy during the silly season so I didn’t manage to write you a letter last month. I can assure you it wasn’t because I had forgotten  (I’m a second child myself so overly […]
