June:: Birth Prep
It was always going to be that June would be a focussed month - the time when my baby girl was due. I knew well ahead of time that I wanted to be organised so that I could simplify and equip myself mentally and physically for what lay ahead.
As a result the blog went a little quieter than usual, and when I did stop in it was mostly about baby prep. Such is life!
In June Milla and I had Norovirus, I wrote a letter to my second baby, I showed off the baby moon bedroom that I had prepared (and now I'm SO glad we did! We swapped rooms around, freshened things up a little and got rid of some junk!)
I finished a set of chair pads (one of the danglies has now broken, oops!)
Finally, Baby arrived! I blogged about my last day at home with Milla (a super special time. I'm glad it was such a nice day for us both!!), and then announced the arrival of Katie.
Anna Wilson-Farrell, of online gift and homeware store Qwerky Home, gets super excited about sustainably produced, fun and offbeat homewares, gifts, furniture and stationery.Anna is proud to stock some amazing creations from New Zealand and overseas and tries to seek out other small enterprises to support. Many of the products are made of eco-friendly materials – some made of recycled plastic, recycled card and mdf, using sustainable natural inks and items that simply trigger that 'love it, must have it' feeling.
Qwerky Home is seriously cool, just hop over to their easy to use website to see their huge range of homewares, childrens gifts and accessories!! I'm currently loving their noahs ark wall decals

Onsie Bummsie are all about cute baby bottoms that dont quite fit in their onesies - You might have a big chubba, or a skinny malinky longy, You can make your onesies stretch even further with extenders!
They can be washed and reused over and over and over again, saving you money on onesies and getting them to fit just right!
