Ambers 14th -16th month

This girl is such a ball of energy, smiles and joy that dispite her boob obsession the constant night feeds, i still feel totally in love with her when she greets me with a huge smile each morning. No rush to talk but nonetheless she manages to express everything she wants even if everything is babas, daddies, aydis or meows! More recently mama, took your time... read more

Aydin turn 4 today!

Aydin turn 4 today!

Today marks Aydins 4th birthday! This beautiful wonderful boy that turned our lives upside down and made us parents and has taught us so much. I still remember the fear of being induced, the desperation for him to come naturally before having to be induced. Then once the birth was over the awe of having this tiny, little fragile, bundle that was somehow ours, part of us and ours to take care of. I had never seen or held anything this wonderful and was fascinated by how something so tiny could look so perfect.  We went on to learn a lot and continue to do so on a daily basis with his bright, intelligent, articulate boy that he is developing into. He is still fascinating to us and still leaves us in awe like that first day but now it’s with his handsomeness and intelligence.  At four the love of numbers is still very much there, the enthusiasm for reading anything he can see, the love of for his little Amber and for his family as he keeps reminding us we are. And his sudden love of all things birthday related after seeing both mine and Hal’s means for the first time ever he is aware of the occasion and reminding us daily that his birthday is on Saturday. I hope he feels even a tiny smidgen of how much we love him on his day.   I can’t understand how we are already here? It is ridiculous that in 1 month Aydi goes to reception. We have had this wonderful little boy in our lives 4 amazing years and... read more

Hali turns 40!!!

Hali turns 40!!!

Today is a wonderfully special day as Hal turns 40, I know for him it is a frightening milestone  but I just see that handsome 25 year old kid that I fell for. I also see how he has grown emotionally and mentally to become a caring and fun father to our 2. I am so proud of everything we have achieved and how we juggle life together. I am so thankful to share everything with you and appreciate every moment.  I know the last 4 years since parenthood hit our lives it has all been a blur, our time together has been minimal. Our wants and needs have dropped so far down the list we sometimes find that we can’t remember the last time we had a proper chat, but despite all this I think these have been amazing years. You drive me mad regularly but is there anyone else I would rather spend my free time from 8-8:30pm??? No way!! We love you to the moon and... read more

Jumping bean

Jumping bean

Signs that our little boy is building up his confidence, there was a time not so long ago he would not dare to even stand on these logs. It was such a joy watching how much he enjoyed jumping of them and getting more confident with each jump. Our baby is growing up far to fast and my emotions are all over the place, from joy to sadness the whole spectrum in between. How can this love keep growing? Everytime i think i can’t love more he proves me... read more

About Me

I'm Jo and this is my little place to record the moments I cherish of everyday life. I know I would never remember all these so at least this way I can capture them, and not only I but family and friends, can take a dip into the past when desired.
