PREGNANCY
A very big little surprise :)
I am pregnant! The news came as a total surprise, as we weren't planning for another baby at all. In fact, we were very much finished with having more children. I had gone through the emotional period of waving goodbye to the sweet years of having babies. I had come to terms with the fact ...

Preparing for baby -- stocking the freezer!
With colourful Autumn produce spilling out of our local Farmer's Market this weekend, I was reminded of this time last year. I was pregnant with an obvious bump on display, and was enjoying the change of seasons with winter drawing ever nearer as I grew ever bigger. I also recalled the yummy feasts of stews and soups that ...

THURSDAY THOUGHTS
Scans, surprises, and science...
Ultrasound scans are a modern tool used to give us so much more information than previous generations of pregnant women had access to… but can scans give too much information away?! I have now had two pregnancies, and I always found the ultrasound scan to be both exciting and nerve racking. It is such an ...

Tuesday Tips: how to survive the first months of pregnancy
I've been very lucky during my pregnancies -- they have always been fairly easy. I was (of course?) extremely tired in the first months, and feeling nauseous here and there (especially when brushing my teeth or when I smelled the exhausts of cars), but overall, I have actually always really enjoyed those nine months. But it's ...

It is a beautifully illustrated story of a girl named Belle and her adventures in the French countryside, where she meets a talking bee and is introduced to the wonders of nature.

Wild Garlic, or Ramson, is abundant in early Spring. We have a simple pesto recipe in our bio which is great with pasta, on fish, or with a cheese toastie! And if you are wondering what’s so good about wild garlic, well, it’s great for you! It has antibacterial, antibiotic, antiseptic properties so it makes sense to pack as much into your diet as you can. It reduces blood pressure, heart disease and the risk of stroke. It’s also fun to forage. Recipe from @laraoflondon

How does your garden grow? Spring provides the perfect opportunity to embrace growing both flowers and vegetables with children. Whether you have a garden, window box space or a small ledge inside, children can learn so much from the experience of growing something themselves. It can really demonstrate to them exactly how the process of photosynthesis works as well as help with learning the cycle of how a little seed can flourish and then be used to create something delicious! Emma tells us how wonderful it is to grow ! “We love growing our own tomatoes and then enjoying tasty bruschettas and rich tomato sauces for both pasta and pizza. It is remarkably simple and the children absolutely love the process of watching the seeds grow. It also teaches them patience (whilst waiting for the tomatoes to grow), resilience (when things do not go quite as planned) and of course helps with embracing all nature has to offer.” Link in bio for her best tips. @the_flourisher_ #babyccinokids #babyccinoeats

Start collecting and pressing Spring flowers as you go on walks and little wanders. A collection can make the most special monogrammed letter. It’s a simple task and a satisfying project and it will mean so much to the grandparent, mother, sister, friend, spouse, or newborn baby that receives it. Great for birthdays, christenings, showers, anniversaries, and really any celebration of a loved one! See this post from @laraoflondon! Link in bio. #babyccinokids #banyccinocrafts
