Every Thursday afternoon, Sienna and I walk five minutes down the road to a little community centre for her Relax and Sing session. It began as Baby Massage and, more recently as she has started to do more than lay on her back and look slack, the sessions have evolved to “Active Baby” with singing, toys and sensory stimulation…oh and cake, there is always cake and a cuppa.
- IN THE DOG HOUSE Lucas’ barbers is called @blackdogbarber and they have a dog kennel as you walk in. Since the very first visit, Lucas has climbed in there as soon as he walks through the door. I look forward to seeing him wedge himself in there when he’s a teenager...purely for the purpose of a photo because he’ll be too cool for that by then no doubt. . Seriously though, @clarkeknowles and the lads at Blackdog are awesome. A talented bunch and great with my wriggly boy who asks a lot of questions and moans that hair got in his mouth (because he doesn’t stop talking or looking slack). I highly recommend them if you’re in the Wakefield area...or Selby as they have @blackdogbarbershop2 there! .

Most people have it on their neck/face as this is where it is most common however little Sienna was born with it on her thigh and her foof which is more rare. @greatormondst website explains it as “a vascular birthmark caused by abnormal development of blood vessels in the skin. A port wine stain is sometimes referred to as a capillary malformation.” It’s nothing to be concerned about, they don’t need any treatment. They just need to be kept out of the sun, but the rest of Sienna’s skin does to as she’s a child! Three in every 1000 children have a port wine stain and girls are more likely than boys to have one. . For me, Sienna’s PWS makes her a little unique and certainly doesn’t bother me. Most people don’t even know she has it, especially now it’s winter and she is in trousers a lot. As far as her foof is concerned, no one will be seeing that till she’s 40 anyway! 😂😉 I hope that as she gets older, she embraces it as part of being her. . #portwinestain #birthmark #PWS #babygirl #unique #embraceourdifferences #daughter #lookatthatchubbylittlethigh 😍 #motherhoodrising #ig_motherhood #honestmotherhoodCHILDREN IN NEED Lucas’ school had a pyjama day and bun sale to raise money for Children In Need today. He declared it to be “the best day ever” because he can go to school in his onesie and pyjamas. . Do you have anything fun planned to raise money? I once taught for the day in my pyjamas. In theory it was a great idea as they are my favourite thing to wear. In reality I felt lethargic all day! I like snuggling up in them to watch the programme in the evening though! . #cin2018 #childreninneed #boy #friday #pyjamaday #funday #raisingmoney @bbccinModelling my new tee from @sewsian today.
