• Eliza, five months

    July 8, 2012

    We were sat waiting for baby clinic last week, and when I looked around the waiting room I saw that we were surrounded by shellshocked mums and their newborns. I suddenly realised something I’ve been vaguely aware of for a while; Eliza’s really, really grown. Where did my tiny baby go?

  • Baby yoga

    June 19, 2012

    We’ve been trying out baby yoga…have you tried it? Eliza is so tantalisingly close to rolling over. She’s spent many recent hours on her play mat, flipping over to her side and back to her back, again and again, never quite finding her tipping point. Then a few weeks ago she discovered her feet and…
