Every mom needs to brag about their kid occasionally, right?


And it only took 2 weeks too.

I’m so proud of her (and so happy about the money we’re saving on nappies).  She still uses a night nappy, but we might take her off that soon as well, seeing as she has woken up with a dry nappy every day for the past week.

Potty training was one of the things I was most anxious about when we embarked on this whole parenting journey.  I wasn’t looking forward to cleaning up accident after accident, or being stuck at home with a kid who needed to be taken to the loo every 15 minutes for weeks on end.  I should’ve known that it wouldn’t be like that.  Sienna has been the easiest kid on the planet to raise up to now.  Potty training was no exception.

Bring on the next thing 😀


Sienna’s Favourite Things

19 Oct

Okay, so I’ve seen this on Jenty and Louisa‘s sites and thought that I’d like to do one too.  At least it’ll get me posting again 😉

TV Show: Spongebob Squarepants, ad nauseum.

Meal: Its a toss up between 2 minute noodles and toast with Bovril on. Easy kid.

Fruit: okay, maybe not that easy.  She likes those dried fruit sticks at least. Real fruit is a no-go for now.

Vegetable: erm, potatoes?

Breakfast: this one isn’t so hard.  Sienna loves oats and cereal.  She normally eats a very hearty breakfast that lasts her until well into the morning.

Drink: my kid has always loved any form of liquid.  Her favourites at the moment are milk with the Purity powder in and Oros.

Drinking yogurt flavour: I must admit that I haven’t tried giving her drinking yogurt yet, but she loves the eating kind. Strawberry is her absolute fav.

Sweets: somewhere along the line, Sienna started liking chocolate.  It’s not something she picked up from me.  Her favourites are Chomps and the little chocolate bear vitamins that she gets every day.

Chips/crisps: I much prefer salty snacks to sweets and most of the time Sienna’s the same.  She’ll eat any chip, even if it burns.  We usually get her Cheese Curls or Flings.

Toy: this changes daily.  I don’t think she has one toy that she prefers over anything else. (I’ve been thinking about this for 10 minutes and I still can’t think of any toy that she likes more than all her others)

Colour: As far as I can tell, it’s always been red.  She loves wearing red clothes and notices red things first.  Her favourite outfit is a red dress.

Something that happened yesterday:

I was off sick with a tummy bug yesterday, so I don’t really know how many cute things she was doing around the house while I was hiding in bed.

She did do one really cute thing though, I’d gotten back into bed soon after her dad brought her home from daycare, and she proceeded to climb up onto the bed.  The next moment she was snuggled up under the covers next to me.  It would’ve been lovely to keep her there if she could lay still for longer than 2 seconds.

My Little Girl’s Birthday

6 Jul

Today is the first anniversary of the day my darling daughter was born.  Its been a year of learning and laughing and experiencing new things.  The cliché about nothing preparing you for life as a parent is certainly true.  I didn’t know how many nappies I would change, dirty noses I’d wipe or bumps and bruises I would kiss better; but I was kind of prepared for that part of it.

What I wasn’t prepared for was the overwhelming and all-encompassing love that I feel for my baby girl.  Her smile slays me daily.  Her laughter is the most infectious I’ve ever heard.  Her pain moves me to tears.  I’ve never before felt so helpless and so powerful all at the same time.  If I had to choose to give my life to save hers, I’d give mine in a heartbeat.

She is part of me in every way and today I want to share a bit of her with you 🙂

She's the happiest baby I know 🙂

Happy 1st birthday my little angel.  I love you more than I could ever explain!

I’m back!!

I’ve finally managed to get internet at home, so I can finally start blogging again.

Of course I’m tremendously excited about this.

I’m also at a complete loss as to what I’m going to be writing about.

I’ve been out of the blogging loop for so long that I feel as if I’ve developed a mild case of writer’s block. I may resort to posting memes until I get my mojo back. (Or until I have something interesting enough to blog about)

First thing’s first though….I need to post a pic of my gorgeous daughter for you to admire.

See you soon!!
