End of the Breastfeeding Era! 

13 months and 5 days of Breastfeeding! I would have gone on much longer but due to reasons I’ll reveal at a later date, I just could not cope with the drain anymore so I went for the quick stop method. I think he sensed it coming too as we …

Family Fridays #2

We went for our statutory morning walk. Daddy had taken the pram to work so I had to use a carrier with Baby E. Thank goodness he’s a skinny 10 month old! Unfortunately I didn’t take any usable pictures on our walk which is so unlike me. While he was …
