*Concentration* . . What do you do when Nanna won't fill up the big watering can? Get her to fill the little one and poor it into the big one yourself 👍 . . When Anthony asked Connie whether she'd had fun with Nanna today she smiled and said "Bounce" - she'd been on the trampoline! I'm so excited for the conversations I'm going to be having with her soon 😍
*Bikes, bikes bikes* . . This was our outing yesterday before the massive amount of rain. My favourite bit was when I said to Connie "do you know where we are?" As we got to the park and she shouted the loudest "Yayyyyyy!" 😍 . . I'm still on for petitioning for a three day weekend - we only just relax then it's back to Monday again!
I would say that 99% of my day is attempting to sit down unsuccessfully. I had a little moment of excitement today when I thought to myself “oh I’ll be forced to sit down when I’m feeding baby no3...” Then I remembered 🤔🙄 I wouldn’t have it any other way. Bring on the chaos! 💪🏻 I thought these illustrations summed it up very well 😂😂
*Before the mud...* . . This little monkey slept TEN hours straight last night for the first time ever!! Thing is she woke up at 6.40am and was knackered by 10am 😴💤 . . We've had a wonderful few hours weeding and "elping" aka generally throwing mud around. I'm thoroughly enjoying our first weekend at home for a few weeks! Travelling is fun but it's also nice to stay still!
Aroma dia bagi aura yang positif. . Dulu masa baru2 pakai memang bau busuk White Angelica ni. Nampak sangat I am not a positive person haha. . Alhamdulillah sekarang dah bau wangi 💃 . #positivevibes #positiveday #positivemummy #YoungLivingEssentialOils #naturalhealing #naturalremedies #TakingWellnessToANewLevel #YoungLivingMalaysia #yleo
*I'm not coming in Mummy* . . I carried Connie for about 90% of our usual walk, then she gets down and refuses to come inside....child's perogative I assume! . . Sleep definitely breeds sleep, Connie had a long nap yesterday afternoon, only woke once last night and had a two hour nap this afternoon....now I've told you all she'll wake hourly this evening 😂
*Bubbles in puddles!* . . According to the weather on our @amazon #alexa there is a flood warning here today....do you think we might be ok? . . I'm enjoying the fact Connie understands almost everything said to her and can respond in a lot of ways too...am I going to come to regret saying that? 😆🙈
Before losing Albert I used to post my life all over social media.... I feel so different about that now and am a lot more private. I did however make a pact to myself to still photograph the good times so when I'm having a bad day I can look back and see I don't always feel like this. This photo was taken on bank holiday Monday, we'd been away for two nights by the sea and my first period finally arrived. I was feeling positive and happy. The next four days following were some of my worst full of tears and low moments. I know I will have another day like this soon and know it's a genuine smile 😊#positivemummy #angelbaby
*Tippy Toes* . . Connie's happy place is outside, she puts her "lellies" on by herself and asks for her "toat" and stands by the door impatiently waiting for us to get ready 😆 We then went hunting for "duddles" to jump in - all of the words now! . . Second photo is the results of my finally creating a spring corner in the house 😊 It was going to be Easter but I ran out of time! My Gran always used to decorate her house seasonally and it's something I want to carry on as a family tradition - what family traditions have you kept going through the generations?
*Like Mother, Like Daughter* . . I love going to the park with other adults as it means I can play too....nothing quite like swinging through the air or flying down a slide to make you feel carefree and happy 😃 . . We've been to visit family in Manchester today and had a lovely afternoon, not sure how another weekend has come to an end! Anyone else want to petition for a three day weekend?
*When you raid your sisters jewellery!* . . We've almost got back to normal today after our holiday, Connie has been more accepting that Mummy can't hold her ALL of the time unlike last week! She also threw half my lunch I'd made up on the floor so you know, swings and roundabouts! 🤦 . . We played in the garden this morning and we've just had a roof down drive to the office in the glorious sunshine! Connie is fast asleep with her sunglasses on. Who else is soaking up the vitamin D today?
*Twilight escape* . . Who could resist this little face when she makes a run for the door whenever it opens? This little outfit (thank you Carla & Valerie) made me think of a miniature French school girl 💕 . . I'd forgotten just how hard the first day with Connie after a holiday is, I'm exhausted! Thankfully she was too!
*Home again, home again...* . . Holidays are never long enough and life always seems to go too fast, after some wonderful adventures and family time we are back home and just we three again. . . Connie's vocabulary has quadrupled and she parrots almost everything we say (when she's listening) so I'm going to have to really curb my swearing or there will be trouble....we can only get away with telling people she's saying "ships" for so long 🙈
*Summer ready* . . After over a year of trying Connie will now wear her sunglasses! Then Nanna treated her to a lovely sun hat on the boat home! She went on wearing her winter hat and came off wearing her new summer hat! 😍 . . Long journey home to England today, so grateful to my lovely Mum & Dad for letting us highjack their holiday, it's been lovely and Connie's speech has come on leaps and bounds this week!
Day 3 - baby weaning - all gone!😋👶😆
*Paddling and exploring* . . We've had a lovely first day here, we went exploring in the garden before we'd even got dressed! We went a second time this afternoon to have a full explore and found lots of flowers, puddles, brambles and trees that have done lots of growing! . . I felt immediately relaxed waking up here this morning, it's definitely my happy place! Connie on the other hand is too wired to sleep! 🙈
Baby weaning - day 2 😋😜 🍫
H o s p i t a l 🚗 P a r k i n g . . . Lennox has probably funded a brand new park after the money we've thrown into the hospital car park machines, that's without adding all his visitors too! 🙈😱 Shout out to Alder Hey who charge £2 per visit, whether that's an hour or a week. It made a hell of a difference to our parking bill! All hospitals need to take a leaf out of their book! After a £50 fee at Manchester Children's Hospital & then about 73612628461 x £5+ tickets at the Royal Lancaster Infirmary. Maybe we should start going on our bicycle 🚴 instead!🤣😆
*I can see the sea!* . . Today was Connie's third time on a ferry, she loved watching the waves and had great fun eating in the restaurant - she thoroughly enjoyed her scallop too! Little foodie! . . We are now on our way to the French house, very much looking forward to a few days of relaxation and good food 😊
21 weeks & he loves food as much as his Mamma ✌🏽❤️
Spending every single day with my son/side kick/best mate 💙👶 it's the best!
What a special weekend with the most inspirational, special & loving friends 💙✨

Accepting that I need to think of ‘me’ in order to succeed at being a good Mummy was something I struggled with. . I thought if I acknowledged that I was lost it would make me a bad Mummy, like I couldn’t cope. The Mummy guilt would override me and I’d continue on convincing myself that I was ok with just being Mummy. . However, I wasn’t ok. I wanted to still feel like me at the same time. To be happy, to smile from the inside and look like me on the outside. . It took me a few years to realise who I was post kids. Who I wanted to be and what goals I wanted for the future. . To realise how to live with anxiety and how to process my sadness. . But I strive for it, for me and my little ones. I am living a positive happy life for ‘me’ while being a successful Mummy too. . Does this sound familiar to how you feel? I see so many Mummies on here and talk to others about the pressures we Mummies face and how we soldier on through without thinking of ourselves. . But let me tell you. Your important!!!! You deserve to smile and you deserve to feel like you!!!! . Do what makes you happy and set yourself positive goals in order to move forward 👍 . Need some help finding your goals, head to my website and read my page ‘A Happy ‘You’ 👍 www.jessicaanne104.com . If I can do it so can you!!!! 😘 . What have you done to make you smile today? . . . #findingthepositive #howtobepositive #howtobehappy #beahappymum #happymummy #positivemummy #succeesfulmum #positivity #remembertosmile #ig_motherhood #mumlife #momlife #mummyhood #ukparentingvlogger #womenempoweringwomen #mumssupportingmums

*Freak snow storm?* . . Sorry not sorry for more snow pictures, we were not expecting it and it basically took over the area this morning and has pretty much gone already! Connie didn't seem to enjoy it as much today, I had to carry her round most of the time we were out! . . I'm disappointed as I've done nothing to celebrate International Women's Day, this little one makes me want to strive to be a better woman and person overall every day 💕
