#WickedWednesday #6

This week has been a week full of sulky faces.


This was Baby on Saturday because mummy said no to giving her my phone. 

As I stated on my Instagram picture. People who say people with Down syndrome are always happy need to just take a look at this picture. It’s a perfect example of Baby throw an tantrum because she isn’t getting her own way.

Don’t worry I was nice enough to take more pictures of this tantrum (to save for her 18th birthday cake!). So you could see what I have to put up with from my 17 month old. 

Can you say early terrible two’s? 

As you can see she went on to try the “I’ll look really cute while I cry” tactic, to see if I would give her my phone.

  That did work so she went back to tantrum mode.

  She nearly broke me with the “Why mummy?” Look but I stood firm and I didn’t give her my phone. So….. 

  ….she decided to go for my iPad instead.

  The tears quickly dried up and she was back to smiley Baby again. 

Just goes shows, how much of a little madam she can be. 

She wasn’t the only little madam this week though. E has been join her in the sulky tantrum stakes although her wasn’t nearly as cute but was rather funny. 


Here is a sulky E because I told here I didn’t know where she put her new Lego magazine. I know I’m such a terrible mummy for not knowing where she left it last. 

I did find it 5 minutes after this picture hidden in the sock basket and when I told E her reply was “Your silly mummy, the socks wanted to read too!”

So there’s my #WickedWednesday which has been full of sulky, tantruming girls. Thankfully my boys have been good ish.

#BWphotoproject – Hearts


I was playing with photos and having my beautiful baby posing for a great snap that I could use for World Down Syndrome Day.

I think this photo is great because it doesn’t just raise awareness for Down syndrome but also heart awareness and that no matter what she is always be in my heart. 

We were really lucky that the 2 holes is baby’s heart at birth closed on there own as she got older and she was discharged from her heart specialist at 8 week old. 

Some parents aren’t as lucky as us and I want them to to they ar always in my thoughts.

#Project365 – Week 12

This week is an exciting week because it has Mother’s Day, My 1st Blogiversary and World Down Syndrome Day. 

It’s a very busy and full of fun week.

Day 74 


My Hubby and kids made me a special Mother’s Day breakfast. I must say it brought a smile to my face 😀 I am a very lucky mummy!

Day 75  


We had a poorly E who was on Monday, high temp, runny nose and feeling sorry for ourselves. Luckily calpol and mummy cuddles where prescribe with docmcstuffins on sky planner. She was fine and back to school the next day.

Day 76 


Tuesday was my first Blogiversary and I have some lovely pictures in my post all about it here. I hadn’t realised that Monday had been the start of Down syndrome awareness week. So I made baby a little poser (she was a natural!) and made this picture. I must say I’m pretty proud of both her and the picture.

Day 77 

E was a really brave girl when she went for her preschool booster. She didn’t even cry. she did get a little upset on second injection, but it was nothing a super mummy cuddle couldn’t fix. Super proud mummy at how much a trooper she is 🙂 

Day 78

Baby got her first pair of Piedro boots from her Orthotics doctor. She was given these and some splints because has a lot of movement in her ankles (due to hypotonia) these boots and ankle will give her the extra support she will need to stand and eventually walk. They are already working wonders and I think there beautiful.

Day 79


I almost forgot to take a picture on Friday and I only remember when I was in middle of dying my hair. So I had to settle for this lovely hair dye selfie. 

I know it’s so flattering lol 

Day 80

Today 21st March and it is World Down Syndrome Day! 

This is our #lotsofsocks for #worlddownsyndromeday #WDSD2015 #WDSD15 #downsyndrome #trisomy21 #teamT21 #21stmarch 

Today is world down syndrome day because people who are born with the genetic condition Down syndrome have 3 copies of the 21st chromosomes and the 21st of March is the 21st of the 3rd month.

We ask you to wear lots of colourful socks to show that everyone may be different but we as still the same. Plus if you add the heels of sock together but turn one sock upside down it makes and X which is the shape of a chromosome. 

💛💙💛💙💛💙Happy WDSD everyone💛💙💛💙💛💙

So there you go that my week in pictures 🙂 

I hope you have had a great week and I can’t wait to see your photos.

#BWphotoproject – Views


I love this stunning shot I took while out with the kids. This beautiful view in a 5 minute walk from my house. It is actually by a tree that I use to play in as a child and is the place I would escape to think (and smoke) as a teenager.

It’s amazing and I love how you can see the clouds passing over the fields and the effect they have on the skyline.

I really love this picture.
