You have to love the eighties fashion of Diana. Our mama always tells us how fashion forward she was, isn’t it funny. Of course we love this pic of Prince William and Prince Harry with their mama… even princes can have a bit of fun.
We absolutely love these snaps of mama Lindsay and her 2 boys. How happy and excited do the three of them look? Do you know what else we love? Their dad is the photographer.
Yes we know Hunter Baby is based in Australia and therefore we are faced with possibly paying customs and the Dollar/Rand rate does not exactly allow easily spending but we couldn’t resist sharing this delightful clothing collection with you… it’s for boys only which we love.
We’ve just past the shortest day of the year and winter is in full swing. Mornings greet us with a nip in the air and nights arrive early. Our usual summer-living culture of outdoors, naked babies and playing in the garden is now replaced by bundling our babes up, turnings heaters on at midday, and finding ways to entertain that don’t involve splashing in water or digging in mud.
Here is my list of winter essentials that I couldn’t live without through these cold months:
Clockwise from top left:
Hearty recipes using in-season ingredients like steaming pumpkin with a touch of cinnamon, paw-paw with a dollop of full cream yogurt or segments of sweet, juicy orange. Image and more ideas from here.
I find the winter air very dry so I rub Jojoba oil on my babes after their bath to keep their skin moisturised without using any unnecessary ingredients.
Winter entails a lot of extra snuggling and this Frank Cushion from Country Road is the perfect cuddly addition to a nursery.
We seldom leave the house without our babies in beanies. This super stylish one is from Country Road. Cotton On has cute ones too.
Winter-themed books are a great way to celebrate the change of season.Winter is the Warmest is all about the cozy elements of winter like roaring fires and flannel pj’s.
The cold weather is a perfect excuse to indulge in a pair of adorbale booties. I love this pair from GAP as they are soft on the little feet and stay on because of the fold around the ankle.
Throws, throws and more throws. We can’t get enough of them – as blankets at night or wraps for afternoon walks. I have my eye on this one of from Country Road.
How cute is this bunny onesie from J.Crew (shipping to SA is available)? Onesies are my go-to winter wear item as the closed feet provide extra warmth.
Enjoy winter lovely readers. The perfect excuse for extra baby snuggles.
What attracted us to this book? It’s title of course! This lion gets board of his rural life so heads to the city of lights for some excitement and new opportunities. But, upon arriving in Paris, he is disappointed to find that no one pays any attention to him, even when he roars in the Metro.
Tessa and her husband, Dylan, live in Salt Rock with their 3 beautiful blonde girls, Mackenzie who is 5 1/2, Taeya who is 4 and Honor who is 9 months old. Tessa is a stay at home mama, a full time wife and a volunteer at Linc Church.

Apparently having a newborn pics taken while still in hospital is becoming quite a thing in the US. How do you feel about it? Would you consider inviting a photographer to your hospital room to snap away? This is baby Logan, snapped on the day she was born by Megan Hartley.
