Little Loves | Tonsillitis, Twinning & Sharing The Love

You may (or may not) have noticed I completely missed last weeks Little Loves. I had a super poorly Baby and Thursday saw us sent to the hospital! After battling to keep her temperature down, nothing was working so we were sent to the hospital where they discovered she had tonsillitis. The next few days were spent fighting to get her to take her antibiotics and snuggling a very unsettled Baby.


I am still reading After You and the more I’m reading the more I’m getting into it. This week I have read some lovely blog posts – one of my favourites is by Georgina about her thoughts on THAT mums net thread. Another read that I can really relate to is A Letter To My Daughter About Becoming A Big Sister by Steph from Raising Emily! I remember feeling all those emotions myself.


Now that Celebrity Big Brother is over I haven’t really had anything to watch in the evenings. If Peppa Pig counts then that is the thing I’ve been watching most lately – not out of my own personal choice I might add! I am loving instastories though and waste a huge amount of my day either doing my own or watching others. I am such a nosy parker 🙂


A lot of crying thanks to the nasty tonsillitis. I also heard that apparently research says it’s ok to pick up your baby each time it cries. Now I thought this was just something us parents did but now that research has backed it up we will feel better about it? Baby’s cry to communicate their needs – of course it’s ruddy ok to pick them up!!


Technically last week but as I didn’t link up I will squeeze it in! We got arty and did some blow painting. I’ve been struggling to get motivated which results in Little getting bored and grating on me – in the nicest way possible! So I’ve made a list of activities we can do at home 🙂



I could not resist dressing the girls the same on Sunday! I’m all for a bit of twinning is winning!!


and lastly..

As you are reading this we will probably be at a new soft play that Little spotted whilst in Hatfield the other day. She has been asking about it everyday and today is finally the day!

I hope you have a fun filled weekend and enjoy the week ahead 🙂

    My hubby watched CBB this year and I did get into to too. It’s amazing that you forget what you used to watch when a regular show like that ends.

    Tonsillitis is horrible! I have had it so many times! Do you have Netflix? There’s some greats shows on there at the moment. So jealous you can dress them matching. Cameron and Benjamin are too far apart in age! x

      Yeah I struggle to find twinning in both their ages and it will be worse once Little moves into 3-4 ox

    I had tonsilitis so many times as a child and finally had them out at 16!

    I hope everyone is feeling better now 🙂
    Peppa Pig features a lot in our household, but personally rather dislike that pig haha! My son can do the George Pig cry :/
    Brave doing blow painting! I think I need to put a screen up so my son doesn’t get paint all over the walls! But lovely being creative of course.
    Have a great weekend.

    Oh no! I hope little lady is on the mend! I love the twinning photo – and the paint blowing is definately something ill try when Ben is older!

    Tonsillitis sounds rubbish. I hope she is better soon. I really want to read me before you and after you but I rarely pick up a book since my youngest was born 8 months ago. #littleloves

    Sorry to hear Baby’s been unwell, it’s so hard when they’re small and can’t say anything! I love the twinning photo… I really hope I get another boy just so I can match them… or a girl and they can both rock unisex!

    Ooh that twinning photo is TOO cute! I hope Baby is feeling better now? There’s nothing worse than seeing your baby poorly. Mama always knows best though :). Have a fab week lovely (and hope soft play was fun!) xx

    Oh that last photo of matching little legs is precious. I love it. Talented creativity on the straw paint blowing too. So sorry to hear of tonsillitis bless MM used to hate taking antibiotics it is hard getting them to take it. hope you had a lovely weekend. #littleloves

    If I had two girls, I’d totally dress them in matching outfits. It’s so adorable. Hope you chase the tonsillitis away soon. It’s so painful x
