  • Seriously running out of Maternity wear at this stage 🤪 Lots of improvising this morning to get this summer outfit together. Such a nice sunny Sunday outing in Kilmore quay with the family, dined in the #silverfoxrestaurant Amazing seafood, so fresh 👌🏻 (well, what I could have, definitely going back for the scallops & the mussels sometime) and walked (not far obviously) across the waterfront before ice-cream and a visit to the playground (not to be missed) Hopefully our last Sunday outing as a family of four before our fifth member decides to join us 🤞 wishful thinking maybe 🤷‍♀️ #sundayfamilyday #bumpstyle #39weeks #visitwexford

  • Almost 15 months ago, I gave birth to twins when I was 33 weeks, and it was a scary moment. •
•
•
We spent almost 3 weeks in the NICU and had to endure all sorts of things I couldn’t have ever possibly anticipated when I first peed on that stick. It was rough - so rough seeing them connected with all those wires that led to different machines. Any beep scared the life out of me - but when I finally got to bring my tiny babies home from the hospital, I finally began to breathe again. •
•
•
Back then, I probably would have assumed that by the time my little twins became energetic, I would be over the whole “preemie mom” thing. That whole chapter would closed and be behind me; I’d just be a “normal mom,” having “normal” mom thoughts. But even though my children’s prematurity doesn’t affect my daily life anymore in any major way, I’m still a preemie mom, through and through. And sometimes I think that’s hard for anyone who hasn’t had a preemie to truly understand.
•
•
•
The truth is, there are a number of things about being the parent of a premature baby that stay with you far longer than you’d ever have imagined. And some of those things change everything about who you are as parent, in ways you could never expect or even imagine. •
•
•
There’s a few things no one ever tells you or no one understands about having a preemie baby:
- You never forget what you all went through. - You never truly stop worrying about another potential health emergency. - The thought of having more children is terrifying. •
•
Being a preemie mom has changed my life in all sorts of ways, and not all of them are negative. Seeing my two formerly-tiny babies each turn into happy, funny, rambunctious little people has been profound, and what we went through taught me to appreciate motherhood more. And I also know how lucky I am that they are here, that I get to be their mother, because I know that not all parents whose babies were born early have had the chance to do that.

  • Book #25 books his book felt like it took me forever to read. After I finished I checked and it was only 5 days which is pretty good for me!!! It took me around 344 pages to start loving this book. (It’s only a 443 page book!!) I’m not saying I didn’t like it up until then, because I did. Like it. And then I got to the last page and was like “really!!!!????” Ugh. My obsession with closure is not quite fulfilled. But it was a good read overall. Good story lines (lines in this case as there are 3 main characters all with their own story line intertwined with each others) I liked the way it was written. So over all pretty good ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ @harlequinaus #racheljohns #theartofkeepingsecrets #mumof3 #mumofboys #bookstagram #goodreads #goodreadschallenge #book25 #justkeepreading #booksbooksbooks #whatsnext

  • On a wet gloomy day... this clever guy instinctively (or fluke) chose 'Elevation - Joyful blend'
.
.

Let's see how it works, because my other 2 sons are not loving the day so far...
.
.

To me it smells, sweet, floral and fresh. I just added 3 drops to my diffuser.
.
.

I love that I have something on hand to enhance and promote a certain mood. My favourite so far is almost anything rosemary in it. But there's so many oils and combinations to try
.
. 🌻ELEVATION🌻
Elevates mood, stimulates the mind and increases vitality with an energising and refreshing aroma. Elevation promotes a revitalising environment.
.
.

Contains: A blend that contains Lavandin, Tangerine, Elemi, Lemon Myrtle, Melissa, Ylang Ylang, Osmanthus and Hawaiian Sandalwood essential oils.
.
.

Uses: Diffuse to promote feelings of self-worth while also helping to lessen feelings of stress. A great blend to use in the mornings before waking kids to create a positive and energised mood. Rub over your heart, temples or wrists to elevate mood and promote vitality. After a long stressful day, try taking a bath with a few drops of Elevation to help lessen feelings of stress.

  • I love seeing my children love their Grandma 😍
Living in another country to my family makes seeing them difficult, but the fact they fly us over here to spend time with them makes it worth it ❤️
And the trips over to NZ they make for birthdays and special events is something I’m so grateful for 🥰

  • 2 years before this photo, I shuddered at the thought of working out in a gym with fitness fanatics. The machines, the body perfects,the sweat, the heat, wearing workout gear ... funny how now those are the things I love about working out.

I really didn't want any part of my life to be restricted by my (lack of) fitness.

If you're a woman/mum/wife wishing there was a perfect program designed just for you, with workouts so fast you can do them while the kids eat a snack, then check out the link in my bio 👆🏼👆🏼👆🏼👆🏼let’s chat, everyone has time for 20 minutes ‘me time’

  • Inspired by @our_little_table strawberry chia overnight oats, I made strawberry and chia porridge this morning. It was so cold 🥶 but littlest one is waking me up at 5.40ish the last few days, having a big feed and sometimes going back to bed. Today she did go back to bed so I went for a walk with pup and to warm us all up I made this. Using the last bit of my @ballantynesstrawberries Can’t wait for markets tomorrow 🤗 #breakfast #porridge #winterfood

  • Healthy and Alive feels damn good. 🙌🏼
Guys. We all wake up everyday wanting to feel and look our best. We all want to feel more alert, less depressed, have less anxiety, be less bloated, get over that weight plateau, and function optimally.

I can help you with that. 
I coach a 30 days to healthy living program that will change you. Completely transform you. I’ve done it. I no longer need naps to take care of my children. My PMS is non existent. I don’t feel exhausted by 12pm. I’m not saying you are unhealthy. However just like we service our cars and change it’s oil, we can all use a reset. Something to have accountability with to return our bodies back to it’s alkaline state, where it’s functioning optimally. Have you been eating like crap? Are you hooked on coffee or sugar? Do you need a reset? 
Stop being afraid of changing your life. Stop thinking you can’t. I’m no different than you. Stop with the inside voice telling you ‘you’re not good enough’. YOU CAN. 
Come with me. Let me show you how. 
So what’s your excuse?! Comment below if you want more info! Next group starts August

  • Our baby girl is 5 months today! It seems like a lot has happened this month. Annabelle is just growing so fast, I almost get sad when her milestones happen; it means she is growing up. 🙂 
She has been chewing on everything, so I wouldn't be surprised if first one is on its way. She also learned how to blow bubbles this month, which is so cute, but makes the drool go everywhere!  Another fun milestone is that she found her feet this month! That is one of my favorites!! I think its so adorable how they play with their little toes. 🌀👧🏼🌸❤️#cutebabies #beautiful #babygirl #mumof3 #mumof3kids #5monthsoldbaby

  • Today we finally made it to @minimaegden, it was delicious and we will definitely be back for a hot chocolate.
The boys then decided they wanted to go into the @giantscausewaynt, despite my choice of footwear we climbed over the pillars and rocks and poked around the rock pools.

  • Kad pēc diviem skaistiem kopā nodzīvotiem mēnešiem saņem lielāko dāvanu - dubultsmaidiņu, kurš atsver katru negulēto minūti, katru nomainīto autiņu, katru mazo vai lielo raudienu un punča sāpīti!
Tieši tik ātri tas viss pazūd un aizmirstas, ka saņemot jautājumu, kā Tu tiec galā, es samulstu, jo viss šķiet diezgan pašsaprotams! Viss notiek pats no sevis!
Brālīši guļ, brālīši raud, brālīši ēd, brālīšus mīļo lielā māsa un vecāki!
Viņi aug!  Laiks skrien tik ātri! 
Vienmēr esmu zinājusi, ka bērni ir laime, bet man pat sapņos nerādījās, ka reiz man varētu būt meitiņa un divi mazi ķipari vienlaikus, kas sniedz tik daudz mīļuma!
Svinam mazos svētkus šodien, jo Emīlam un  Renāram šodien jau 2 mēneši!
Paldies, ka Jūs man esat! #mīlestībasaplenkumā #dvīnīši #2mēneši #vēsāmierā #2montholdtwins #smaidsradasmaidu

We have family down and this little dude is our nephew and 4/5 months younger than Evie however Evie refuses to call him by his name and just addresses him as baby. .

So here's a luscious photo of Evie and Baby for absolutely no other reason other than they are bloody 'ansome 😍

Implementing a successful routine for child number 3: Investing time into your new baby’s routine, during the newborn stage, will result in your baby slotting into your current family routine. This means you’ll come out of the newborn stage settled and sleeping through the night. *
Kit is 7 weeks old and slept through the after 10 days of my routine.
