A Letter To My Children

A photograph of two children, a little girl and her baby brother, sitting inside a tee pee and smiling adoringly at one another - To my children on mothers day - Mrs H's favourite things

Dear Little Miss and Little Mister H One of my greatest fears is that you will never know how much I love you. That you won’t understand that I feel truly blessed to have you in my life. You and your Daddy are my world. My life. You are my favourite of all my favourite things. Sometimes I am sad, or tired, or grumpy. I might snap at you or raise my voice. I may be doing jobs when you wish I…

Mother’s Day Wish List

Mother’s Day is now one of my favourite days of the year. Last Mother’s Day was absolutely fantastic. I was pregnant with our longed for rainbow baby. I got to have a lie-in, breakfast in bed, a family day out and a yummy meal in the evening. And Mr H had arranged the perfect gift. A pregnancy massage at the Champney’s City Spa in Tunbridge Wells. I believe that showing love and appreciation for the Mother in your life should…

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.…

My top 5 teething products

A photograph of a gorgeous 6 month old baby boy lying on a pale blue patchwork blanket and wearing a blue and black stripey top My top 5 teething products _ Mrs H's favourite things

Little Mister H has been grouchy all day. He’s been clingy and cried every time I have put him down. There has been a swimming pool full of dribble. He has been chewing everything in sight. And he has had a slight temperature and red cheeks. He is teething. And it sucks. When Little Miss started teething I had no idea what to do. I had read about it in baby books and magazines but nothing prepared me for how…

An Open Letter To Our First Baby

A sepia tinted photograph of a young baby's feet and toes - A open letter to our first baby - Mrs H's favourite things

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.…
