                                So happy to be posting on my blog after ages! My last blog post was when I was pregnant with my second. Now she is 4 years old!!Years flew by in a wink! Not that Im complaining. No more tantrums(not too much atleast!), dirty diapers, milk feeds, messy meals, waking up like a zillion times in the middle of the night and the list goes on........Iv had my fair share of ups and downs.
                                 My girls are now 7 and 4......and hopefully I can be a bit more regular here now. So here I am, on my blog after 4 years. So baby steps again ...........so bear with my amateur photos guys!
