Birthday Selfie - 254/365

I'm a very lucky Mummy to have Chris and my bunch of beautiful babies to celebrate my birthday with. We took this photo during breakfast when Ben was trying his best to blow up birthday balloons for me.

Catch Me If You Can - 257/365

The twins find it hilarious to run off on me when I'm trying to get them dressed. They chase about the house after each other, stopping to tickle one another or blow raspberries on each other's tummies. My little cheeky monkeys!

Fish Fish - 256/365

Today the twins took quite an interest in the fish for some reason. At one point they both scaled Ben's Tripp Trapp and I swear if I hadn't been there to stop it Zachary would have stuck his hand in and scoped poor Squirt out as his fingers were just going into the tank. Thankfully Zoey seemed content to watch at point at the saying "fish fish" as she did. 

Five Already?

Every year on Ben's birthday I find myself wondering how did that year whizz by so quickly? This year I am asking myself it more so than ever as not only has Ben turned five, but he has also started big school which feels like such a huge milestone.

First Mummy Memory

I will never, ever forget the day Ben was born. The moment I set eyes on him for the first time and held him, that newborn smell - my little bubble blowing baby boy. My heart doubled in size that day, the day that precious little bundle had made me a Mummy and changed my world forever.

Big School Time

This time last year Ben started preschool,  it was only for three hour sessions at a time and very relaxed so it still felt like he was all mine. Now he's started big school, while I'm excited for him embarking on his new adventure, it does feel like I'm losing a big chunk of my little man to the education system.

I'd be lying if I said it doesn't make me a little sad that we have reached this stage already. While it is lovely having more one on one time with the twins and all the extra cuddles I get from them, I miss my little buddy and our chats and impromptu hugs during the day. I guess that's all part of parenting though, encouraging your child and giving them the independence that they need to be ready for the adventures ahead of them.


The Softest They'll Ever Be

Fairy Non Bio recognises the importance of Embrace and how important it is to make sure you make the most of every precious pre-school moment while they are still The Softest They’ll Ever Be by creating this video.

I, for one will definitely be making the most of all the precious moments I have everyday with Zoey and Zachary before they join their big brother at school in a few years. I just hope time slows down a bit as I want this time to last a whole lot longer.

It's Party Time - 255/365

Today was Ben's fifth birthday party. He had a Lego movie themed party and invited his whole class along with a few other friends. There was an entertainer there for an hour who did a vast array of things from magic tricks, a puppet show, balloon modelling, dancing, games and bubbles which the kids loved especially Ben. I thinks it's safe to say he had an awesome fifth birthday and I'd like to thank everyone who came along.
