Joining Like Mother Like Daughter for this week’s {pretty, happy, funny, real}.



These flowers were a little ‘pick-me-up’ last week, a reminder to me that Spring isn’t that far away!! I cannot get enough of them, they were just so bright and beautiful. Nothing I love more than fresh flowers on the table.

Below are some really beautiful hyacinths my Nanna gave us for Christmas. When we received them, they were barely peeking through the soil, and in no time at all they’ve grown into these wonderful flowers! Nanna, thank you!







I finally took B to the barbers for the first time! His hair was getting so long and I really didn’t dare to cut it myself. But even though I was really happy about this hair-cutting business, I think Benedict was completely shocked by the whole experience, and about half way through it all just got too much and I couldn’t do anything to stop the uncontrollable wailing that followed!

He managed to cheer up when the barber gave him two lollipops for being “such a good boy”! Below is the after picture; it makes him look so much older!




Benedict has a habit at the moment of diving over the edge of the sofa to pick a book… A boy thing I think! So I think Eoin is maybe giving him a helping hand…? I’m not too sure!

Benedict has been waking up at 5am for the past few MONTHS now… and we’re still trying to make excuses saying its just a phase, he’s teething, he’s got a cough, he’s got a cold… But we have tried EVERYTHING! Anyway, it means by mid-day he will drop wherever he is, whatever he’s doing and just sleep! I absolutely love this photo though… so gorgeous.
