Emily stole a quick 20mins in the garden yesterday whilst I cooked and cleaned, the first time in maybe a month?! It is all overgrown and gross out there! And so.many.spiders. Also, the digging patch in the corner of the garden was a wonderful idea, until you realise it makes a perfect litter box for the neighbouring kitty cats 🐈 Before getting into her digging, Emily ran to tell me 'uh-oh!' and pulled me outside to find her soil rather... soiled πŸ’© I'm so grateful that she came to get me rather than getting straight in there 😬 πŸ˜‚

Emily is off to her nanny's today so that I can get some work done! I love how easy it was to pack up her lunch using our reusable @nomnomkids snack bags and a yogurt pouch! ❀️

It has begun!! Last night, the evening air was so crisp I had to put on my big jacket, and Emily started picking up all the beautiful red and orange leaves... Autumn is here, and I'm not even sad about the loss of summer, but excited for cosy jumpers, boots, jackets and beautiful autumn colours all around! 🍁 This time last year I was dreaming about leaf collecting with Emily and now we get to do it for real. Bring it on Autumn!..#autumn #autumnleaves #autumncolours #autumnweather #helloautumn  #autumnvibes

I am having such a proud mummy day! After our journey across town and back with Emily, and nothing but her little feet to help her get there, we decided a quick stop for a strawberry milk was really needed..I just can't believe how much Emily has grown up in the last month or so. She is so independent, she is talking so well and is generally just growing! She's recently started pointing to herself saying 'baba' as she is now so aware of herself and recognises herself as a baby...but now I'm thinking, no she's just not!! I have a 'big girl's on my hands, and there is just nothing I can do about it..Except I can enjoy it! And today I really did. I loved walking with her to the bus stop, and having little chats along the way. She points out everything she sees, and I pretty much just agree with her..."yes that's a tree, and yes it has leaves", "yes you're right, that is a red car!". She is just constantly talking πŸ˜‚ And I am constantly surprised by what words she knows and is quickly learning colours too! She is putting little sentences together, which is totally not what I expected at this age. She is blowing me away. (Told you it was a proud mama day!!).I didn't even bother finding her a high chair today in the café πŸ˜‚ she sat so nicely in the 'big girl' chair and drank her milk. I had my coffee and she asked me so nicely to have some of my cakey treat. "Please mummy" is the most irresistible phrase I will ever hear!! The people sat next to us just stared at her he whole time πŸ˜‚ So I encouraged her to say hello and they had a lovely little chat. I love how social she is ❀️ I so hope I can encourage and nurture that as she grows up. I imagine so many more 'coffee dates' in our future, where we are not only enjoying ourselves and making each other happy, but extending that joy to people around us. That's how I am imagining our future today, and it warms my heart ❀️.I am thanking God so hard πŸ˜‚ I am so blessed to be this girl's mother. I am just so grateful. I am so emotional πŸ˜‚ I love her SO MUCH..I'll stop now...just needed to do something with these emotions πŸ˜‚ I am a proud mumma. #sorrynotsorry

We're on a solo bus adventure! 🚌And by that I mean, we are going across town... without the help of the trusty pushchair!! As you can tell, Emily is happy with the arrangement and is super excited about being on the bus 😍

This is Emily sleeping on a random sofa in a cafe in town today... Pity she's not doing the same in her cot, now an hour past her bedtime πŸ˜†

So proud of my husband for sharing some of his testimony at church on Sunday, and so grateful for @freedomcheltenham and all that God has done in our lives in the last six months ❀️..[Consistent Growth]It was a privilege to hear Sam share testimony on how God brought him on a journey of Consistent Growth. From wanting to give up on church all together to rekindling his love for worship and the church. We are so grateful to have Sam, Lorah & Emily in our campus and love seeing them develop into all God has called them to be. #freedomcheltenham #freedomchurch #cheltenham #family #consistentgrowth

Emily is on 'looking after mummy duty' this morning. Since she clearly deals well with being up at 4am and mummy really doesn't... I think it's only fair!! 😴
