The most beautiful mail day I’ve ever had 🌸😍🌸

Kovah & her first tea party. She was the best little hostess with her entertainment skills 😂🌸

So we are currently lying in bed, after being awake since 4am once again. Her fidgeting and shuffling all over the bed and my body, trying to fall back to sleep. The moments we complain about. But in these few hours I noticed she just kept coming back to me. Holding my hand, pulling my top, reaching for me. I’m her comfort and safety. And instead of feeling frustration I felt pride, I felt an overflow of love, I felt so needed. I let her crawl all over me, then gave her a bottle and she fell back to sleep...but not before rolling back onto me and holding my face. These moments of tender love won’t last forever, no baby keeps. But today I’ve woken with a heart so full, she’s my greatest gift. ❤️

She drifts into a world of mermaids and mystical oceans where she can swim without breath and ride on sea dragons... 🌊🧜🏻‍♀️

You know you go into the @nextofficial kids section too much when they know you both by name, ask how Kovah is and which colour my sling is today 😂 # #babywearingmama

Everyday is a day of love when you have a baby! Even though she’s kept me awake since 4am (send me coffees) she crawled over to me not long ago and just cuddled me. She’s my soul mate 🌹

I decided to start my day again as this morning was just the worst! Glad I’m spending my Valentines with my number 1. Happy Second Valentines Day baby bird 🌹

Yes I should do a new Valentine’s Day post but this photo melts my heart! Last years Valentine’s Day with our newborn Koko bean! How could I not post this again!? 💖💖💖

Proof that when you’re poorly all you need is a good playtime and lunch with your besties to cheer you up! 😊🌸

This girl has been such a trooper the last 2 weeks. We were back at the doctors today but not really any further in helping her. She has a bad stomach virus which has developed into a viral infection from her neck up so gunky eyes, sore throat, runny nose and a little neck rash. Seeing you babe sick is the hardest thing, knowing they are so super but you can’t really do anything. But today we both found comfort in @mywildbird 🌸 #mywildbirdcassin

When motherhood drives you a little insane from lack of sleep and your hair is still wet in the afternoon! Coffee where you at? ☕️

Today should be Kovah’s 1st birthday, if she had arrived on her due date. Life was so peaceful back then, she was the sweetest little baby, never crying unless you changed her, just calm and totally content. Everything was pretty simple, she’d sleep for 3 hours, wake up and feed and sleep again all day long! She is still the sweetest, most gentle and content baby, she just talks a lot more now. I’m so proud of how far she’s come, I just wish it happened a bit slower 😥🌼

Just reposting this MAGICAL photo from the insanely beautiful and talented @amykavs (isn’t her babe just the cutest) who has painted Kovah’s portrait, can you guys guess which is her? I’m so grateful for this community of close, loving and generous mothers on here. I just feel so blessed to be able to call Amy a new friend who has already been the sweetest soul to chat to on here. She’s also holding a giveaway so you can get your babes face painted by her too, so head over and enter because this is going to be so treasured! 🌸

Happy Friday! It’s only 9am and I’m already exhausted. Up so much last night and Kovah’s been awake since 5.45am. Got a weekend of shooting blog posts and hopefully a good lay in, can you beat my plans? 😂❤️

Post bath baby slinging, I remember this day so well! She LOVED being in a sling even at 6pounds and a month old! I miss my tiny bird and this sweet sweet view. 🌸

We made it outside today after a long weekend of rotten colds and sickness...and now this bird is teething. Blue skies and sunshine does NOT mean it’s warm though...outside is freezing today. But never the less it was so good to feel that fresh crisp air in our lungs...so much so this one had her nap around the supermarket. 🍃

While exploring new towns that we want to move to, this particular town we both fell in love with and whilst walking through the centre in the rain we stumbled across this tied to a pipe. Signs are everywhere in life, only if you keep your eyes open to the world around you. 🌷

Missing my latest blog post? Go check it out on the link in my bio. However much I love how beautiful snow is, I’m totally ready to start shooting some Spring posts! 🌱

Forever holding hands and there’s nothing I love more. When she naps, when she’s in the van, when I’m in a coffee shop, and just when we are watching a film under a blanket. Her little hand always reaches and gently holds mine. I’m feeling pretty sick and run down today so these moments are making my heart smile, she came upstairs and sat next to me and reached for my hand, like she knows! 🌸

Coffee is needed but Fridays are the best day of the week! Mini Mozart class this morning and seeing our favourite baby mamas this afternoon. Cheers to weekend my loves ☕️

How sweet is Kovah’s first camera? Photography has always been a huge love and hobby of mine, since I had my first film camera when I was about 11. So naturally for Kovah’s 1st birthday I had to get her her first camera. 🌸📷🌸

crystallily1

Sunshine is becoming more frequent and I can’t wait to spend weekend by the lakes having a picnic like we did last year when Kovah was so dinky. But for now, the fact I showered, washed and conditioned my hair today will have to do. 💁🏼‍♀️ #WetHairDontCare

Anyone else’s baby going a bit nutty from the Supermoon? She’s angry for a second when I put her down and then just super sad when she’s on the floor by herself. Doesn’t help that I can definitely feel a cold coming on. Some nice rest with feet up for us both today. ☕️

Nothing better than freshly ironed linen slings and Muslin blankets. There’s something so relaxing and therapeutic about it. 🌸

We picked up Kovah’s 1 year photos this weekend and I had to fight back to tears while signing for them! Can’t WAIT to be able to put these up in our home because they are the CUTEST!!! But until them they are staying wrapped up so sticking little fingers don’t get to them! 😍

These little newborn baby fit get me right in the feels. Not perfect, badly edited as I’ve come a long with that this past year but still and will always be one of my favourite photos. 🌸

Excuse while I melt over here, Kovah’s first pigtails and I can’t take the cuteness! They are officially the best thing ever and I they are SO bouncy when she crawls it’s hilarious! 🤣❤️

Regained some appetite today and feeling a little less grim! Kovah napped in her sling while we looked at new house furniture but now she won’t nap while we’re home! 🙃 but hey I’m feeling more in control today so roll on hours of playing with my little bird! 😊

crystallily1

Times have been pretty hard lately, very little sleep, Kovah not wanting to sleep until after midnight and then looking after her and doing it all again the next day. It’s been a SUPER hard phase. Today she hasn’t napped...she slept for LITERALLY 10 minutes then woke up like she’d had 3 hours. Along with feeling as rough as I do it’s been a hard day emotionally and physically. But this sweet soul has been asleep since 8.15pm and I’m hoping it’ll last till morning. However frustrating and hard motherhood gets at times, it’s so worth it. This sweet soul is dreaming about whatever her heart desires, totally carefree; it’s magical. She’s my reason for everyday. Count your blessings. 🌸

Today is definitely a look after yourself kind of day. I feel rotten, run down and pretty sick. So when Kovah naps I’ll be making hot chocolates, reading my favourite book in my favourite slippers and using my favourite essential oils to kick whatever illness this is! 🙏🏻

And so another week begins. Hoping and praying this week brings us some good news regarding houses, all exciting but very very stressful. But I’m trying my hardest to still stick to my resolutions in the mean time and I’ll be editing another fashion post this afternoon! 🌷

Slinging in the snow today! Did you get any? It was a bit of a freak snow storm which stopped suddenly and then turned into yucky drizzle. We ventured out in it for a play then went for a nice Sunday walk. I feel Like I’m still thawing out but nothing a hot choccy can’t fix! Hope you’ve all had a snuggly sunday! 🌨

Ventured off to another potential new home town today and it was a lovely day even despite the rain! Mike found a pub he said would be his favourite (which had nice mirrors) and I got over excited at the fact there was an ASDA and an ALDI! Now we’ve got to keep the positive vibes flowing and hope it all works out for the best! 🏡

Breakfast today was overnight apple oats with warm pear & cinnamon. I might quickly whip this onto the blog tonight because it is SCRUMMY and got the approval of Kovah! Family friendly breakfast that only took about 5 minutes! 🍐

Yes there is a lot of newborn Kovah spam on my feed but seriously I can’t stop! Blame timehop and mama hormones! 💛

Postpartum hair growth in all its glory, making the messy Mum bun pretty easy to do. But I’m so proud of this little lady. Just had her 1 year jabs and we both cried. It’s the first lot I’ve had to told her as Mike usually has her and I close my eyes 🙈 always gets you right in the Mum feels! Now that’s over its cuddles and chills all afternoon! ❤️

So today is the dreaded day...Kovah’s 1 year jabs. Every time she’s had them Mike has had to hold her because I feel so guilty but today it’s just me. Wish us luck! 😰

12 days old and I remember taking this photo so clearly. These moments were my favourite, I was still breastfeeding, she was SO teeny and I could just carry her around the house for hours and she loved it. I miss those newborn days so much...especially when she doesn’t sleep now and back then she’d sleep the day away. My little tiny Koko pop 🌸

After a night of barely any sleep and a slow morning because I feel super drained, I didn’t want to do nothing for myself today. So while little lady naps I came downstairs, lite my @yankeecandle and read some of my favourite book. I rubbed a little lavender and tea tree essential oil into my feet to really calm and relax me. 20 minutes of me time felt SO good. I hardly ever get time to just spend on myself nowadays with all this housing business going crazy, it’s been eating up so much time but I know very soon that’ll be worth it and my one on one time with myself will be so amazing in our new home 🕯📖

These are a few of my favourite things, from Kovah’s Wildflower Themed 1st Birhday. I’m still impressed with myself that I made her cake; roses, snapdragons and vanilla vegan yumminess. 🌸🌷🌿

Out and about exploring new little towns in hopes of finding our home soon. Came across this sweet tea room today that hosts baby showers and is also a gift shop! Too sweet! Everyone should have a cute coffee shop near their house 🏡🌸

So much newborn Kovah spam but how can I not?!? This day last year t was Friday 13th it was snowing and Kovah had just been discharged and we both got to go home together. That little yawn 😍😩❤️

Are you serious? 😭 this came up on my timehop and I was a crying mess in Costa today! I can hardly remember holding her when she was this small, seems like forever ago. I miss those tiny cuddles and sweet little hiccups! 😭💖

However stressful Kovah’s party was...I really want to do it again! The first time I’ve organised, styled, decorated and baked for an event and I LOVED it! Anyone need their birthday party decorated and styled? 🙋🏼‍♀️🌷

Bed time routine for us is still all over the place after leap 7, she’s slowly settling back into it but we make the best of it and soak in the cutie cuddles all night long! (Don’t judge on the cosleeping - yeah you “shouldn’t” do it but you shouldn’t do a lot of things these days🤷🏼‍♀️) @sheepers slippers on, @kokoso_baby on the butt and jammies on! Goodnight everyone🌙✨

Just in case no ones said anything to you today: Hello Good Morning You’re doing a fabulous job. I believe in you.

Our first Monday of 2018 without Dada. He had a wonderful 16 days off over the holidays but we definitely got used to him being around. Today has also shed some hope and light on our 2018 and the positive thinking is strong. But today also bought some much needed inner calm. Kovah took the longest nap she has done in a long time and I think it’s because I put her down on her front. She’s been trying to sleep like this at night but as she’s in our bed and fidgets she takes up too much room on her tummy. (Haha sorry girl) But I just took a few minutes today, to sit and watch her dream and gently snore. I still find it pure magic that my body made her and she’s mine. 🌸

crystallily1

Great start to the week with Kovah sleeping from 9.30pm - 9am! On the hunt for houses and sending off applications today and I’m feeling pretty positive about our housing dreams this year. But who says Mondays and house hunting have to be done without treats 😊

There’s a high chance you’ll be seeing more photos of her party before the blog post is up because these are melting my mama heart! But here’s a little story for you about why this particular @mywildbird sling is so precious to me. It was a winter collection ( as you know Kovah is a winter babe) & it’s called Snow Owl, from day one I said Kovah would be early and it would snow when we brought her home, sure enough the day we got discharged from NICU it snowed, Friday 13th no less! It’s a herringbone pattern and it’s just beautiful. For me it’s all of Kovah wrapped up in it. My little snow bird, wrapped up in her snow owl sling, a year on being held safe in her mamas arms...somewhere this time last year she couldn’t be because I was fighting in recovery and we were apart for 3 days. This moment at her party is so special to me and I’m so glad I got to sling her on her special day! ❄️

Can’t believe we finished our 12 months of milestone photos, but they were the perfect addition to her Wildflower Party yesterday! 🌸🌼🌷

We have the had the most precious & special day. It’s been total magic, Kovah’s been flooded with love and gifts it’s made me well up so much throughout the day. It’s been such a happy day filled with light, laughter and love and compared to last year it’s been the best day we’ve shared with Kovah, our friends and family. It’s made celebrating this girls birth so much more positive for me and I’m beyond grateful. Thankyou to all who came and loved on our baby girl and shared in our celebration of her first year earth side! 🌸🌼🌺
