Congratulations Mr & Mrs Dennis!

Yesterday we were lucky enough to watch two of our friends tie the knot and become Mr and Mrs Dennis. I honestly couldn't be happier for these two lovebirds. And seriously, you really could feel the love in the church/room yesterday, it was the most perfect day!

Elsie's Birthday Presents and Party Ideas

It's now less than a month until Elsie's birthday and since I'm a bit of an OCD super organised weirdo, I've known what theme and decorations her party will have and what presents to buy her for months. We're going to be having a party at home for her and *hopefully* we can spend most of the time in the garden as our house soon gets pretty cosy and cramped. But who knows with the British weather?! So, with only a few weeks to go, I thought I'd share some of the ideas I've had for her presents (I'm not buying all of them!) and where I'll be getting most of the decorations from...

Elsie's 11 Month Update

I can't quite believe that we now only have one month left until this sweet baby girl of ours turns one. It feels like only yesterday that she was all sleepy and scrunched up on my chest in the hospital with that super soft newborn skin and the most beautiful pouty lips (gets them from her Daddy). The last eleven months have literally flown by. And I know everyone says that but it really bloody does. It completely amazes me how much they can grow, learn and develop in such a short time. I'd do anything to go back for another cuddle!

Siblings Project //July 2017

Oh Oliver and Elsie, you really do keep us on our toes! Especially miss Elsie. This last month (before Ollie fractured his collarbone), he has taken to carrying Elsie into his bedroom to play. Now that he can't carry her, he tempts her to crawl through with toys she likes. It's so funny and cute to watch. Then if she escapes, he goes after her which makes her giggle her head off because she thinks he's chasing her. His other favourite thing to do is tell her off. He LOVES to be the one who's doing the telling off rather than being the naughty one for a change. So when she goes off rummaging through the kitchen cupboard or switches the Playstation on for the 218487th time of the day, he's straight over saying 'No, Elsie!', 'You're not allowed Elsie!'.

Chester Zoo with our two monkeys

It would be very difficult to write a bad review about our day out to Chester Zoo. We honestly had the best day! We haven't been since Ollie was about 9 months (see the photo below) so it was a much needed trip as I love the place. Last year we had an annual pass for the Welsh Mountain Zoo in Colwyn Heights but it's honestly not that great up there. It was ok to fill an hour or two or just to use the play area but it definitely doesn't fill a day and its nowhere near the standards of Chester. So we booked tickets (it's cheaper to book online up until the night before in case you are planning to visit there soon too) and off we went last Monday. The weather was on our side too which always helps!

Me and Mine // June 2017

We took our Me and Mine photos at the weekend but I've just not got around to writing a post to go with them! Nothing picturesque this month unfortunately, just a selfie on the floor with the ironing board in the background 😂 I had plans of going strawberry picking last week and taking a photo there but the weather crapped all over that idea.. so the lounge floor will do! We took a similar photo for our first Me and Mine photo in January and it was a lot trickier to get Elsie to stay still this time round.
