Olivia Rose Shaw

So I finally got around to writing down Olivia’s birth story. She was due 2nd of January and the plan was to have a natural birth with epidural. My pregnancy was good. I had nausea the first trimester but that went away as soon as I hit about 14 weeks. Yes, I was tired but…

28 weeks and other things I have been thinking about.

I am 28 weeks and 1 day pregnant. I only know this because my pregnancy app told me. How different to the first pregnancy where I literally knew to the second how far along I was. It is probably because I have a very busy toddler. So 12 weeks, more or less, to go. In…

So how do things compare?

Today I am 21 weeks prego, it’s Andrew’s birthday and Sam is just over 21months old! And they are both sick. Hence, I am awake at 4:15am because I can’t sleep due to them coughing so much. As I am up, I thought I might as well do a little blogpost. People have been asking…

Half way already?!

Today marks the half way point of my second pregnancy. 20 weeks down, 20 (hopefully) weeks to go.  In a way it feels like it’s taken forever to get here, but at the same time it has flown. So a little update on my pregnancy. I’ve gained +-5kg….of that about 4kg in my boobs. Not…

Testing testing….does this thing still work?

Okay…I’m feeling rather guilty that I have neglected this blog for so long. I’ve tried to come up with excuses but if I’m honest,I’ve just been too lazy. But I AM BACK….well let’s hope so. So what’s been happening in the Shaw household? Well, quite a bit actually. I ran the Two Oceans half marathon…

So we went camping…

For quite some time I’ve been wanting to go camping. Yes, I am one of those girls. I really like being outdoors and have grown up spending most of my time doing something in nature. Sam adores being outside and I really wanted to introduce him to camping. We finally decided that my mid term…

Teething…..f%$^&%$^&%^ teething

So as you probably can guess from the heading of this blog post,is that Sam is teething. Why do babies¬†even need teeth? I am more than willing to blend Sam is food for the rest of his life…totally okay with. This past weekend can only be described as a weekend from hell. It all started…

To 1st-birthdaying or not 1st-birthdaying…

Sam is turning one in in 43days. ONE. Yes, you read that right. Where has the time gone?! The little dude is going to be a toddler in 43 days. WHAT?! Anywho with birthdays come parties… and this is what this post is about. I have gone to some spectacular kiddies parties where it literally…

A very pretty garden…

So I love plants. I even studied Botany…jip true story. Our house is filled with orchids and we even have green curtains. *I might be a bit too obsessed with the colour green*. I am lucky to have married a man that also loves plants  *just not green curtains…but hey we all have faults*. Anyway…

My 31st birthday….an odd one but good one.

So 31. I am 31 years old. That sounds old but not in the way you think. Like it sound like I should be an adult. Obviously I am but you know what I mean…*could be the wine talking now* So my birthday started at 4am. Thanks Sam. He obviously wanted me to start celebrating…

It’s spring time…

Happy 1st of September!  Yes I put a flower in his hair…. So I’ve kinda been M.I.A because…I actually don’t know. Those last weeks of school were busy and then holiday hit. I had all the intentions to blog during my time off but I just didn’t have anything to say so I didn’t. I’m…

Nice try. Go run.

1. “I’m too tired to run…my baby kept me up all night”. Well,you will be tired before the run and after the run so what is the difference? Nice try…go run. 2. “I don’t have a gym membership so I can’t exercise”. Last time I checked the road didn’t require any membership so nice try….
