My Rainbow Baby featuring Miracle Max

My Rainbow Baby featuring Miracle Max

Welcome to the second post in the My rainbow baby blog series. I have created this series in the wish that it will give hope to anyone who has experienced baby loss or is struggling to have a longed for baby. Little Miss H and Little Mister H are not the only rainbow babies. There are many of them. And I want to share the beautiful and poignant tales of these special little rainbows. I am inviting others to tell these stories. To talk about these precious children in their own words. And I will collate them on my blog so that there is a shared space where these stories of hope are held. I am honoured that today I am joined by Jo from Miracle Max, who will be sharing the story of her gorgeous little boy Max. Jo sadly had 6 miscarriages before being blessed with her beautiful rainbow baby. I only came across her blog a few months ago. And I am so glad that I did. As I feel such an infinity with her. Back in July, she wrote a very powerful post about post natal depression and when becoming a mummy is different from how you imagined. You can follow Miracle Max on Twitter, Facebook and Instagram. I will now hand over to Jo who will tell us of the story of her rainbow baby Max. My Rainbow Baby – Max’s story I’d never heard of the phrase ‘after every storm comes a rainbow’ until 5 years ago. It was something a friend at work said to me after we’d suffered our first miscarriage and it’s stuck with me...
Organic baby clothes review – From Babies with Love

Organic baby clothes review – From Babies with Love

Before becoming a mother, I was a charity fundraiser. I cared deeply and I wanted to make a difference in the world. But since becoming a mother, my desire to help other’s has increased. And I’m especially drawn to organisations and social enterprises that help disadvantaged and vulnerable children. That is why I was thrilled when From Babies with Love asked me to review some products from their AW16 Capsule Collection of beautiful organic baby clothes. From Babies with Love  From Babies with Love are not your run of the mill baby clothing brand. They are something quite special. In fact they are very special. Because From Babies with Love donate 100% of their profits to the charity SOS Children. That is amazing, right? Every penny of profit goes to helping abandoned and orphaned children. Children who have lost their parents through famine, disease, war or poverty. These children are given new homes in a SOS Children’s Village. They are given a SOS Mother and a SOS Family. And these children, who have nothing, are given security, a family and a home. AW16 Capsule Collection of organic baby clothes From Babies with Love is an amazing social enterprise that makes a real difference in the lives of children around the world. They also sell gorgeous organic baby clothes. Little Mister H was sent the Penguin Baby Grow and the French Grey Little Kisses Knot Hat. And they are fabulous. Little Mister H is at the age where he is constantly rolling or wiggling his hands and legs. He needs to wear clothes that are comfortable and won’t irritate. And the...
Bluestone Wales – A review of the resort and Kingdom of the Elves

Bluestone Wales – A review of the resort and Kingdom of the Elves

Earlier this month we packed up our car and drove for 5 hours to Pembrokeshire. Bluestone National Park Resort in Wales had invited us for an early Christmas break and to visit their 2016 Christmas experience Kingdom of the Elves. A review of Bluestone National Park Resort This is my first post about our winter holiday at Bluestone. I thought that I would begin by sharing a review of the accommodation, the resort itself and our visit to the Kingdom of the Elves. In a few days time I will share another post about what we got up to at Bluestone (it rained almost non-stop when we were there and so we spent the majority of our time on site). And I have also produced a little video of our break which features a short tour of our lodge. Check in and arrival We arrived at Bluestone at 17.30 in the evening. It was dark, cold, wet and windy. The beautiful sunshine disappeared shortly after we had crossed the Severn Bridge. Bluestone has an amazing and quick drive thru check in. And in less than 10 minutes we were ready to drive to our lodge and unpack. Finding our lodge was a little trickier than expected. It was hard to read the map and the road signs in the dark. So we missed the turning to our lodge and had to continue on Bluestone’s one way system until we could take the right turning. My parents (who were staying with us) were following us in their car. They got lost. They didn’t know which lodge we were staying in and none of our...
Our Advent 2016 Bucket List

Our Advent 2016 Bucket List

For Little Miss H’s second Christmas I compiled a list of activities for us to do during Advent. Last year I planned to do this again but unfortunately it did not happen. I was so anxious during my pregnancy that I wasn’t able to concentrate on anything else. This year everything is different. Little Mister H is almost five months old. Little Miss H is now at pre-school. And I am in a much better place. So once again I plan to do an activity a day with my children during Advent. I thought I would share our list with you just in case you are looking for some inspiration of activities to do with your children on the run up to Christmas. (You can always pin this post so that you can come back to it on another day). Our Advent 2016 Bucket List 1. Bake Christmas snow flecked brownies. 2. Make, write and post a letter to Father Christmas. 3. Buy the Christmas tree and decorate. 4. An early Christmas with Grandma and Grandpa. 5. Choose a present to give to a child for the Tunbridge Wells Mayor’s Christmas Toy Appeal. Wrap the present and take it to a donation station. 6. Make a den, snuggle up under blankets and read Christmas stories. 7. Make salt dough Christmas decorations. 8. Wrap Christmas presents with Mummy. 9. Make Christmas cards for the family. 10. Go into London to see the Christmas lights. 11. An early Christmas with Nanna, Grampy and Auntie B. 12. Go for a long walk in the woods. Come home for hot chocolate, a snuggle on the sofa and a Christmas movie. 13. Put on Christmas music...
Little Mister H at four and a half months old

Little Mister H at four and a half months old

Little Mister H is actually nearer five months old then four months old. But last week was one of those weeks. As a result, my blog was forgotten about and Little Mister H’s four-month update is very late.   Little Mister H at four and a half months old The past month or so The past month or so have been pretty darn busy. We have actually had 3 mini holidays. Which have been lovely. In October, we went to Dorset for a couple of days. We stayed in a cottage on a working farm and had a lovely long weekend in the countryside. It was Little Mister H’s first holiday and he got to see the sea for the first time. During half term Little Miss, Little Mister and I went to stay with my parents. Little Miss H and Little Mister H were spoilt rotten. And Little Mister H discovered that he loves to nap snuggled up on his Grandpa’s shoulder (much like his mother did many moons ago). We then went to stay for a few days at Bluestone National Park Resort which was fantastic. Little Mister H was as good as gold during the two 6 hour journeys. And we could have easily forgotten that we had a four-month old baby in the back of our car. During the past month we have also taken Little Mister H on his first trip to London Zoo, (He slept most of the time), for a wintry and blustery walk along Camber Sands (he slept most of the time) and to see the dinosaurs and the blue whale at the Natural History Museum...
