Orchid

Happy Sunday everyone, hope you’ve had a good weekend so far! Isn’t that orchid pretty? We got it as a late anniversary gift from my parents and when I had the camera out earlier this week I decided to take some photographs. This week feels like it’s been extremely busy for me! I’ve had a couple of hospital appointments with Fin, one of which was getting his tongue tie snipped so I was glad that was all sorted. He also had a prolonged jaundice screen which came back clear meaning his jaundice is breast milk jaundice and totally normal. We also took our first drive together in the car with no James which was nerve wracking. I have a mirror attached to the back seat so I can still see him thankfully but I was still looking over my shoulder at every junction and red traffic light! I also got my car MOT’d and had a brilliant shopping trip so feel like I haven’t stopped.

Some nice eats considering I sometimes feel like I have no time to eat! I’ve been making a decaf coffee with coconut oil and when it’s in the fridge, some leftover coconut milk, each morning as coconut is good for breast milk. On Wednesday when I was out with my Mam and Aunt I enjoyed that Chicken Almond Tagine from the M&S cafe, it was delicious! I’ve also been loving my new smaller slow cooker and that beef stew was gorgeous, check out my Instagram feed or Facebook for the super simple recipe. I’m planning a post all on chuck it in slow cooker recipes as I think I’ll be using them a lot!

Move

Walking with pram

Not a lot on the movement front again this week, we did get out for a couple of walks, ahem, if walks around the shops count ;-) The weather has been crap here which doesn’t help either although I know I need to lose that excuse! Sooo looking forward to being able to work out again properly!

Wear 

All the stripesAll the stripes!

I’ve been getting some breast feeding tops and naturally went for all the stripy numbers! I got two tops from JoJo Maman Bebe and Mamas and Papas. I also treated myself to some new black pants, a cardigan and button up shirt from New Look. I am in the process of losing weight, but as I said in this post, I don’t want to put things on hold for that. There’s no reason why I can’t look good at this size too!

Love

Finley

I will stop posting loads of baby pics eventually, honest! What can I say, I’m just in love with my little fella! Also…

    Yay for no hospital stays :):) your little lad is looking like a total hero. And now I totally want a peach and avocado green smoothie! I made a smoothie with a carrot in yesterday, it was soooo lumpy haha poor old blender.

      Yey indeed! What a shame about the lumpy smoothie, I might actually try popping a carrot in one of mine this week as I have loads of them to use up!

    His hair is so cute in that pic!
    Glad you are getting out and about too- walking around shops counts as being active still.
    Today we are heading out to London for the day- yesterday I worked most of the day until about 7.30, apart from a run in the morning and a pop to the shops late afternoon, so as a treat for getting it all done we get to go out today :)

      Hope you had a nice day in London, it must be handy living so close so you can just head there for the day!

    No, please don’t stop posting baby pics … well maybe when he’s 18 or so that is ;-)
    Great to get that first “solo” trip out the way and settling into some sort or “normal”.

    I am slightly partial to coffee with coconut oil, that is after my first one where I nearly burnt my entire mouth – forgot how oil would keep it so hot for so long, oopsie!

      Haha, I’m glad you enjoy the baby pics! I nearly did that with mine last week, I try and remember to add a bit of cold water now!

    Look at his little mohican! Aw please don’t stop – more Fin pics please! I dusted off my slow cooker this week and have some beautiful lamb to stick in it – all the way from my parent’s friends farm in Wales! Not sure how I’ll muster the patience to wait for it to cook… ;)

      Haha I know it goes like that itself believe it or not! That lamb sounds amazing, I wish James liked lamb as I’d buy it more often!

    So glad to hear you’ve had no hospital stays this week yay! And walking round the shops definitely counts as a workout for me – that was my workout today in fact! ;)

    Ahh that’s a cool idea about having the mirror so you can see Fin. It must be so scary at first I guess! But then I’m sure you get used to it.
    I love my slow cooker but I do need some more recipes to play with! It’s become a bit of an eye sore in the kitchen again now sadly. Grrr.

    Reply
    • Laura Agar Wilson

      It is but as you say you do get used to it thankfully! Hopefully I will have some recipe ideas for you soon!

    EVERYTHING tastes amazing when you’re breast feeding. I can clearly remember making sausages, broccoli and mashed potato when I got home from hospital after I had Jazzy and Joey. It was the best meal I ever tasted nothing like feeding two babies to make you enjoy your food. I would love some slow cooker inspiration it seems like such a great idea but I hardly ever use mine. If you have time that is, that will get better I promise.

      Blimey I bet it did with feeding two! Yep my appetite is pretty high right now and I know what you mean about food tasting so good!
