One to Run- Mackenzie turns 1

Well….we made it! A whole 365 days of Mackenzie by our side, in the flesh with those beautiful big eyes and luscious lips! The most beautiful girl in the world- our sweet girl. When I started this blog I was pregnant and had just lost Mackenzies twin at 9 weeks pregnant. It was a whirlwind […]

Reflection- the good, the bad

I’ve been meaning to write this blog for a while but I haven’t found the chance to sit down and get all my thoughts onto paper. I think apart of me also, thought that things were going to change drastically and what I was going to write down leading up to now would not reflect […]

Baby number 2.0

“I don’t think I can have anymore” ….I remember saying to Josh even months after we had Mackenzie. I wasn’t scared, I was just content with Mackenzie. She was sleeping which meant I was sleeping, Josh and I were still adjusting to parenthood but still able to have some alone time together and independently. We […]

Traveling with a toddler

When Mackenzie was 6 months old we decided we would go on a little vacation after Christmas to celebrate her first birthday. North from us seemed like a good choice, warm weather and beaches along the coast line of Queensland. We would travel in our new car and stop at Coffs Harbour 5hours from us […]

Sleeping through the night was still happening for both Mackenzie and I, and wake up time was around 6am. Bottle and then bed […]

Mother’s Day

As I sit here in my hot warm bath, drinking a glass of red wine, I can’t help but forget I am a mummy. Mackenzie is only four months old so I guess being called “Mum” is a bit foreign to me seeing as it isn’t coming from her at the moment. My first Mother’s […]

Tomorrow is a new day..

“Tomorrow is a new day”- a phrase I would religiously live by and what got me through the first few weeks of motherhood. The forth day in hospital was my last day in hospital. We spent the day finalising our discharge papers for both Mackenzie and myself. Once we got the all clear we left […]
