Finding Happiness

Our June 2017 bucket list

How can we possibly be at the end of the third day of June already? This year is zooming by. And I’m certain that since having Little Mister H I have entered into a parallel universe where time moves twice as fast. May was a wonderful month. It was the month Little Miss H turned four. And we seemed very busy. I’ve got a feeling that June is going to be a fabulous month too. And it’s already off to a brilliant start. As…

My Rainbow Baby featuring Family Travel with Ellie

My Rainbow Baby is a blog series where I ask fellow bloggers to share the stories of their children born after baby loss. These babies are the rainbow that appears to brighten up the sky after the darkest storm - My Rainbow Baby Blog series - Mrs H's favourite things

Welcome back to the blog series My Rainbow Baby. I created My Rainbow Baby in the wish that it will give hope to anyone who has experienced baby loss or is struggling to have a longed for baby. To show that even after the darkest storm a rainbow can appear. 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.…

The recent glimmers of sunshine have turned my thoughts to summer. I can already imagine Little Miss running around the garden in pretty summer dresses. Or Little Mister H taking his first tentative steps while wearing a cute pair of dungarees (I do love my boy in dungarees). And JoJo Maman Bébé is always my first port of call when I am looking to buy beautiful summer clothes for my children. We were very lucky that JoJo Maman Bébé recently sent Little…

Little Mister H at eight months old featuring Sgt. Smith

A photograph of our eight month old baby boy wearing a grey and yellow striped personalised dinosaur babygrow from Sgt. Smith, sitting up, starring at the camera, blowing a raspberry and with a very cheeky face - Little Mister H at eight months old - an update - Mrs H's favourite things - featured image

Our little boy is eight months old. He is growing up too quickly. Months pass in the blink of an eye. And the newborn days seem far behind us. Even at eight months old, Little Mister H seems to be approaching toddlerdom at a rate of knots. I wouldn’t be surprised if he starts walking before he is a year old. But in the meantime I am treasuring every moment with our precious little munchkin. And he is such a joy to be with.…

Dear Baby, Today could have been your 4th birthday. Today your Daddy and I could have been singing happy birthday to you. We could have watched you open your presents. Seen you smile as you blew out the candles on your cake. We could have taken you to see the animals at London Zoo. Maybe you would have asked to take one of your new toys with you.…

The past six months have been the quickest six months of my life. After a pregnancy that dragged and often seemed as long as the gestation period of an elephant, the last few months have flown by. Our baby boy is no longer a new born. And in the past month he has become a real little boy.…

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.…

Our Advent 2016 Bucket List

A photograph of a branch of frost covered red berries _ Our Advent 2016 Bucket List_Mrs H's favourite things

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…
