The boys had a sleepover with my in-loves last night so I got to spend some one-on-one with my girl.
Sometimes I feel bad that I don’t get much one-on-one with her. So, I do my best to make that time count. But, she spent most of the night asking for “bra-thars” 😆 Then, I realized how much she just loves when we’re all together. Having one-on-one with all of my kids is a blessing, but I feel even more blessed knowing that they love to be with each other just as much!
How good and how pleasing it is when brothers (and sisters) dwell together in unity! Psalm 133:1
Things I will miss when you are big...
Riding escavators; teddy bear toast; spinning around to get bizzy; morning snuggles; the hilarious joy of juicy raspberries; h is for haeroplane; extracting stories from sleeping arms; weeeeeeeeeeee!; picking fellers 💐; greeting bees; shopping in fancy dress; “AGAIN!”; the changing sound of thumb sucking as you go to sleep; cuddles fixing everything; special sticks with names; clumsy, joyful dancing; leaving the landing light on; breakfast for dolls; uninhibited, uncomplicated nudity; made up songs; little water footprints on the sunny patio; narrating your own dialogue in the third person (...said M); pointing at the moon; eating tickly crisps; trying to say ‘flock of pigeons’ 🤭; dip-dip; little toothbrushes; shopping trolley snuggles; everything, everything, everything, and more.
I miss it already.

It’s cliche but time is flying by!
You finally rolled back to front yesterday.... but you haven’t done it since! You are desperately trying to crawl or walk but not sure which one you want to master yet! My heart is so full of love it hurts. I just love watching you change and grow day by day and your laugh is infectious 🥰.
This is now my final month of maternity leave. Settling in days with your grandparents are going well as we come out of lockdown. Love you so much smidgle bum 💖xxx #9monthsold#growinguptoofast#ivfsuccess
Now looking much more like the adult birds they will soon become, our juvenile kestrels have now been moved into a larger aviary to stretch their wings. It won't be long now before they can head back to the wild :)
My baby is moving into his big bed tonight 😩 ..outgrown the snuz pod !
We are a co-sleeping family 👪 however to start the night Cohen would be in his snuz pod right next to me . it made breastfeeding so much easier to bed sharing and using a bed-side crib made breastfeeding so much easier and me less of a zombie 🧟♀️ . We thought once Cohen was old enough to be in his big bed he would be in his nursery but he is still feeding multiple times a night so snuz pod is out and cot bed is into our room ... hopefully he will take to it well.
We had him playing in it earlier and he just lay down and giggled at us through the bars 🤣
We are looking up to spot an airplane, the one that will take us on our next adventure. Or maybe the one that will take us to meet family some 8,300 miles away?⠀
Apart from traveling to new places, going to visit our entire family in India is a big part of our travels. It's been over a year since we have spent time with them and don't know when we will get on a flight to see them.⠀
People are slowly becoming more comfortable with air travel and are getting back on a plane. We are still edgy because what if we have to quarantine ourselves or get stuck in another country because of lockdown. ⠀
Have you done air travel recently or planning on doing it soon?
