6 months in

So I have a new phone and along with this blogger app I guess there should be no reason for me not to post, so here goes.

For one, I cant believe it has been so long since we moved into this new place and what with all of the jobs we have been doing around the place I blinked and suddenly we have a little lady on our hands. It has been a busy 6 months and at times, actually quite often I have felt overwhelmed. I do think I have always been quite a laid back person but I think there has been to many changes going on and it has caused me a lot of anxiety. For one being out of work has at times been difficult cos I felt (And still do) a lot of guilt for not bringing any income in. That being said it has been fun and challenging spending this time with Eden before she starts preschool in January.

So I'm hoping to be around a lot more now. If you use instagram then look me up, my username is littleshel.

For now xxx

Managed to capture a lovely few pics of Eden and Daddy last week, where loving how well she expresses her love now. I can't imagine her ever being a moody teenager and not wanting kisses from Mummy & Daddy.

Forever Friends

I took Eden to one of these soft play places yesterday, and we met up with a couple of her little friends. We had a really nice time and I was so happy because we had no tantrums, no tears and she even played a little with the other kids. For me it feel's like a real achievement because she is usually not really into other kids but I have been trying to talk to her a bit about her friends and to tell her how nice they are.

I think it's finally working. My friends adorable little boy is only a few months older than Eden and I have this romantic view of them being life long friends and being really close etc etc etc.. but Eden has never been amused with him at all. It's a shame because he is such a sociable little thing and when he has wanted to play with her previously she has just cried or ran away from him; so I was so happy that we hit a turning point and she was really interested in him. They even exchanged a few kisses and posed together for a few pictures (none of which are good mobile pics but I like the out takes just the same).

Next, we will work on "sharing".

Dressing Up FUN


Seriously adorable images to follow :o)))

Was a bad mum today as i made Eden get dressed up in her Halloween costume as she never got to wear it in November, what with being sick at the time.. i thought i may aswell try to get my moneys worth, plus it's nice to try and get a Halloween pic every year.

Well she took it like a champ considering, i had to put it on her doll first to convince her to wear it hehe.

One thing that strikes me looking at these is how much older she looks, and how she has begun to pose and listen to what i ask of her when i take pictures. The poor kid has had a camera trust in her face since birth but surprisingly seems to really like it.

Oh, by the way my "i" key keeps sticking so i can't make a capital.. very annoying indeed!

I'm Back

It's been a while :o)

I have been focused on other things that have been going on and unfortunately writing/blogging has had to take a back seat.. SORRY I promise to be better... so what's been going on with you?

We have had craziness, in no particular order..

HOUSE MOVE - (at short notice) we spent the first month living out of boxes with the house down to bare brickwork (not good with a toddler I might add)

SICKNESS - Eden was hospitalised on CHRISTMAS DAY for a bacterial infection/fever/convulsion...

REDUNDANCY - yup....nuff said

So as life goes there has been a lot going on and some major lifestyle changes that we are still trying to adjust to. It has been tough but I am trying to see the light at the end of the tunnel now. I feel like there has been far too much stress to contend with. I am thankful that we have the new house to focus on and with me losing my job we have had to pull Eden out of nursery which she loved :o( but she is keeping me busy so there is no time to feel sorry for myself.

As Eden goes, well every day is FUN, CHALLENGING, REWARDING and HARD but I wouldn't have it any other way. We are waiting for her hospital visit on 15th Feb to confirm that she has thallasemia and to hopefully sort out a treatment plan of some kind. You see, she gets sick really easily, as well as being tired and lethargic a lot.. it has been really tough but hopefully we are now getting somewhere.

I'm sorry I feel like I am ending this post on quite a downward note but I will try to leave you with some niceness from the past few months. xx
