March Favourites // Little Loves


I can never quite believe how quickly another month can whizz by, and suddenly we're into the next month and I'm writing up my little loves for March.

Yet again, this month has been littered with hospital trips... affording me much time to read books and watch movies and listen to podcasts, and I'm thankful to report that baby remains on the inside. With every week that passes, we enter safer and safer territory and though I won't deny that each scare is slightly terrifying... I am increasingly thankful for the strength this little baby is already showing, and for a good God who I can rely upon, no matter what. We are almost at 32 weeks now, and the hoped for 37 draws ever nearer...

So here we have my little loves for March...

Something Old // A Little Antique Haul...



I don't know what it is about old stuff, but there is something in me that just finds it innately more fascinating and beautiful. For me, stepping into an antique shop is like stepping into a treasure trove. Every single item has a history - a story to tell... and unearthing those stories, treasuring those stories and making your own story part of their story is, quite simply, magnificent.

Thoughts from a Hospital Bed // Last Night


                        

It's taken me a little while to write this post... I've needed a little bit of recuperating and reflecting. Often my response in a crisis is to tumble it out in a post of raw words... To get my head clear and process my thoughts through the process of writing. But, to be brutally honest, last night was full of tears and anxious thoughts that threatened to overwhelm me and I've needed a little time today to reflect and recover and gain some perspective on last night.

The Simple Kitchen // Pitta Pizzas



I am forever on the hunt for simple, healthy recipes that the children can get involved with. Cooking with little ones is risky business... it has the potential for disaster, stress and a lot of mess. But if the right recipes can be found, it can be a really unifying, fun, learning experience for everyone involved.

Note... ALWAYS get children to wash hands first... that way, when you are culling and editing your photos later and spot your one-year-old sneaking a handful of cheese from your artsy recipe flatlay, you know it really doesn't matter...

Siblings in March // Characters on Show


World Book Day came around for these little siblings at the beginning of March. I will admit, I am one of the minority who actually loves the opportunity to dress my children up in their character of choice... And I think you can tell from their faces that they love it too!

Their characters of choice... Reflecting each of their personalities so perfectly...

30 weeks...



When you're on your fourth baby, there are certain assumptions you make. My first three have all been full term babies, ranging between 39 and 42 weeks. For me, there was no thought in my head that a premature baby might be something we needed to get our heads around when we found out I was expecting our fourth.

But when I rushed into hospital a month ago, at 26+3 weeks, suddenly that reality hit.
