  • That feeling you get every time you see your baby smiling... Like reeaallyyy smiling (moms you know what I'm talking about). There are few feelings better than that. One more day til we find out if baby number two is pink of blue πŸ’™πŸ’— (also I hate that I just used that stereotype)
  • You guys, this guy has my whole heart!! Some days I worry about how I possibly have any more room in there for another one! My heart is already bursting and I know it's going to totally explode when baby number two comes along! Tell me about what it's like to be a mama of two or three or four or more? Share all the secrets, ladies!!! GO!
  • Just a little bit obsessed with this rawnola recipe from @ellenfisher cookbook! Doesn't hurt that Hudson loves it as well. Since starting my vegan challenge, I've felt better than ever and am so grateful for the group of women who have joined me! It's been such an amazing ans uplifting experience and we've also found new ways to add more and more veggies to Hudson's diet. He's wanting to try everything we eat and I'm loving watching him expand his own palette without realising it! Amazing how one small decision can make such a massive impact to our lifestyle and wellbeing!
  • NEVER too big to wash his hands in the sink. Haha not quite a luxurious sink bath, but we don't take hand washing lightly in this house. Also I just wanted to put him in the sink! It is absolutely crazy to think that this boy is going to be a big brother in  just over four months! P. S. We are finding out the sex of this little peanut on Friday! What do you think? Boy or girl?? (insert bump pic here but I have no bump...so that's awkward and slightly saddening).
  • This plant-based thing isn't so hard after all 😍 banana, mango, kiwi, papaya and kale all blended together this morning to make a delicious green smoothie. There's a group of us on Facebook exchanging recipes and sharing the next 30 days improving our health by eating a wholefood plant based diet! Curious? Let me know and I'll add you! 🍏🌿🍐
  • Sometimes I just like to sit back and watch him in his own little world. You know those moments where they are totally caught up in whatever is going on in their head and they've not got a clue that the world is still going on around them? I love watching the little wheels in his head turn and his imagination working. These are the days. I'll just be sitting here soaking them in ❀
  • Totally enjoying the sneak peek of spring we had today! Spent the afternoon playing on the sand dunes and forgetting all the stresses of moving to another country. This mama needs a margarita... Make it a virgin  though.
  • πŸ’«New PostπŸ’« Ads and I have decided to try a vegan diet for 30 days! I am absolutely loving it so far (shockingly). I was so afraid that I would always be hungry or that I would miss cheese (because pizza), but we have actually been cooking up the BEST meals! To find out what we're eating and to join I'm the challenge, head over to the blog! I would LOVE to have you guys join me! I promise it's fun... Last night I had mango curry and na'an...😍😍 link in bio!
  • Ads and I crept into Hudsons room last night to check on him and realised simultaneously that our little baby isn't a baby anymore. He's seriously so big now! We were both like wait a minute, WHEN DID THIS HAPPEN?! I think with baby number two I am going to focus a lot more on relishing the moments instead of looking forward to the next milestone. It's so easy to get caught up in making sure your baby is "hitting the milestones" that you forget to enjoy the milestones they've already hit! What's your best advice to a second time mama?? Throw it all my way!
