My Monthly Bucket List – October 2016

October is one of my favourite months of the year. The skies are blue but the weather is cooler and there is an autumnal chill in the air. The leaves have started turning and falling in piles perfect for collecting and kicking. Yet, the woods behind our house are still dappled with green. My sandals have been packed away and the boots are out. It is too cold to go outside without a jacket but the winter coats, hats, gloves and scarfs…

We made Little Mister H – Introducing We Made Me

A faded photograph of a lady with brown hair standing in a park and wearing her snoozing baby in the Wuti Wrap from the brand We Made Me - includes the blog post title "We made Little Mister H" - Mrs H's favourite things

I fell in love with baby wearing when Little Miss H was six months old and I bought my first wrap. I soon became obsessed but I was sad that I hadn't known about the benefits of baby wearing earlier. As my pregnancy with Little Mister H progressed I became more and more excited by the idea of wearing a newborn. I couldn't wait to have our little bundle of squishiness all wrapped up next to me. Then a few months before…

Little Mister H was 10 weeks old yesterday. And 10 days ago, he turned two months old. The newborn baby days are behind us. Little Mister H is now a very active and alert baby. He loves to smile and happily gurgles away whilst lying on his playmat. He makes the cutest noises and it sounds like he is trying to talk to us. We have definitely settled into life as a family of 4. And it feels like Little Mister H…

A faded photograph of a young woman looking wistful as the sun sets in a tropical setting behind her - Includes the title "Perinatal mental health #PNDAW16 - It's okay not to be okay" - Mrs H's favourite things

Today marks the end of the first ever Pre & Post Natal Depression Awareness Week #PNDAW16 run by PANDAS (the UK's leading pre and post natal depression charity). In light of this, I wanted to share my story of perinatal mental health. My experience of perinatal mental illnesses may be slightly unusual as I have suffered from depression for almost 17 year; most of my adult life. At times, my mental health has been terrible. At other times it has been…

Well hello and welcome to the first "Mrs H's 10 favourite things" post. I have been meaning to start writing these posts for a while now. I often discover fabulous Netflix programmes, a gorgeous new lipstick, a beautiful dress for Little Miss H or a cute babygrow for Little Mister H. And I have nowhere to rave about them. That is why I am starting this monthly post. This month I am being a little sneaky and including some pregnancy items from May…

Little Mister H is one month old. It is hard to believe that our sweet boy has been in our lives for only one month. I can't remember what life was like before Little Mister H was part of our family. I was sad that I never completed a baby book or made a record of Little Miss H's development. So I have decided to record how Little Mister H changes from month to month. Starting at the very beginning with Little…

A heart full of love – The Siblings Project – July 2016

A mum sits on a hospital bed with her three three year old daughter and introduces her to her newborn baby brother - with the title "A heart full of love - The Siblings Project - July 2016" - Mrs H's favourite things

I always knew that Little Miss H would be an amazing sister. That she would be kind and gentle to her sibling. She would be concerned for their welfare and look out for them. She would also boss her baby brother or sister about. Demanding that they play with her. Telling them which character they were playing in her imaginary games. Probably a Disney Princess or a My Little Pony. She would read them stories, show them how to paint and teach…
