Finally!! / ¡Por fin!

Finally it seems like we’ve cracked it. Just last week I was crying as a tired mum who hadn’t slept a full night for almost 15 months now. He still woke up several times and went down to one bottle during the night back to asking for even more. We came back home from the…

First steps/primeros pasos

After a long time now standing up and holding on to things, walking around holding our hand he finally took his first real steps on his own on the 15th of August! Después de mucho tiempo ya parándose y andando con apoyo ya tomó sus primeros pasos el día 15 de agosto. My uncle got…

Flying with baby/ volando con un bebe

So we got here, even though I felt ill just thinking about travelling with him on my own. It's not the same when you are with someone who can help and take over. In the car journey to the airport he was angry and crying for some reason so it all started there. Then at…

A special summer/ un verano especial

I can't believe that we have already had a month holiday. It's gone so fast but been so special. To get to spend so much time with my little man…watch him grow and learn so much. We've been lucky to spend this month at the beach and it's been all about him: taking him to…

His first performance/ su primer acto en la guardería 

The feeling that I was going as a mummy to see MY son’s end of year “performance” at nursery felt very strange. Being a teacher usually I’m the one organising the performance with children for their parents to come and see. It felt weird being known as his mum in this environment. The people we…

First birthday/ primer cumple

So I’ve been so busy I haven’t even had time to write about his first birthday which was a month ago. His celebrations were ongoing. I took the day off and we went to the zoo to see the animals for the first time. My mum was over so he had nana time too. He…

Swimming lesson/ clases de natación 

As summer is getting closer and being in such a hot country we tend to spend the month of July in a pool or the sea so I wanted E to be used to the water. We have taken him to the spa pool twice and he loved it but I wanted him to have…

Bando de la Huerta

His first bando. He was all dressed up and ready like his mummy and had a fab picnic with friends. We saw horses, ponies and lots of typical food.  Su primer bando de la huerta. Se visitó de huertano como su mamá y hicimos picnic con amigos. Vimos caballos, burros y mucha comida típica de…

Family holiday/ vacaciones en familia

We were lucky to be able to escape for a long easter weekend to Ubeda and Baeza. Our first holiday with our little man which wasn’t visiting family. Joined by friends we had a lovely time! And so did our little man.  What to take on a few day break with a baby?  -travel cot …

Special / especial 

As he grows up so fast I realise every moment we spend together is so special! I love Sunday’s when he sleeps his siesta on me on the sofa. When we have playtime all day long. When we go for walks in the sunshine. Every time he laugh and smiles I fall in love even…

Father’s Day/ el día del papi

Thank you daddy for wanting me so much. Thank you daddy for loving me since the moment you realized I existed. Thank you daddy for holding me until mummy came to meet me. Thank you daddy for looking after me. Thank you daddy for making me laugh. Thank you daddy for changing my first dirty…

Eyes in the back of my head/ ojos en todos lados

Now my little Batman is well and truly on the move. So he tries to get out of his ball pool, his cot, he touches everything in his reach and has more energy than I do! This is just the start! Mummy get ready to chase me! 😂 Ahora mi pequeño Batman ha empezado a…
