Our Month In Photos: December

I’ll be honest, this is actually a backdated post. I initially started this “Our Month in Photo” thing for January, but seeing as we bought the camera before Christmas, and used it quite a lot around then, I thought I’d do this for December too! So here are five photos that me and Rachel both love from December. It was pretty hard cutting it down to five, but I don’t want this to be too much of a silly post. Here we go: “The Christmas Family Photo” You might already recognise this one. If you just scroll up to the…

Our First Christmas with a Baby

Well, after a pretty long day, and a much longer Christmas Eve, we’re done and dusted with Isabelle’s first Christmas.

Overall, it was probably as good as I could’ve hoped it would go. But before I carry on, I will start all of this off by saying I don’t generally like Christmas all that much. I’m not some mean spirited Grinch type person, but a lot of my depression stems from something that happened very near to Christmas nine years ago.

Isablog #19 – The Last One Before Christmas

Well, this time next week, as you’re probably very well aware, it will be Christmas Eve. And as such, I won’t be blogging. I try not to allow this blog to impact on my family time as much as I can; of course, it can’t fully be avoided. If I want to run this blog, which I very much do, I have to find time to write. But doing it on Christmas Eve is where I draw the line.

Last Minute Christmas Gift Guide for 6 to 12 Month Olds

I’m leaving this late. Well, very late. But here are 6 things that I feel would make somewhat decent presents for babies aged somewhere between 6-12 months; basically Isabelle’s age range. I’ve provided Amazon links to most of the products, but you don’t have to feel obliged to buy anything via these, it’s merely for me to show you the gift.

Isablog #16 – Keeping up Traditions and That’s the Seven Month Mark

As you may already know, I like to try and keep this blog as open and honest as I feel is appropriate. We need some boundaries, and I will try to keep them. But at the moment, I’m knackered. The problem with writing a weekly blog is often the fact you have to actually write a weekly blog. And this is the 15th time I’ve had to do this. Some weeks, I turn up and I’m very much up for it. I have a point, a purpose, and the mental energy to follow through on my promise to myself to do this. Other times, I don’t really know what to say, I don’t really want to write and I don’t exactly have the time. But I do it. Could I take a week off? Yes, but that’s not what I want to do.
