Gosi und ich konnten uns am Sonntag an zweiter Stelle platzieren. Ich kann es immer noch gar nicht richtig glauben und bin nach wie vor unfassbar stolz. Am Sonntag haben wir dann noch Einen Trail der gleichzeitig das Finale von der Kreismeisterschaft ist, bei der wir mitmachen. Ich bin gespannt wie es laufen wird 💕 #equestrian #physio #akupunktur #vetphysio #dressage #dressagehorse #bester #love #loveluca #equestrian #gosi

Love...Swimming We took Baby Luca swimming for the first time when he was 3 months old. We could’ve taken him earlier but I wanted to wait for his first immunisation (we were told it wasn’t necessary to wait however). We are both keen swimmers so would like for Luca to share the same love for the water. This was in Mexico at the gorgeous @finestplayamujeres on his 5 month birthday. More on this resort & Baby travel to follow! Swim diapers from @alvababydiaper Go on baby, take a splash in the pool! . . . #love... #swimming #babyswimming #waterbaby #mexico #babytravel #familytravel #travelinspiration #travelgram #luxe #pool #stalbansmums #familygoals #photoinspiration #loveluca18 #loveluca #lovelife #babyluca #f4f #babiesofinstagram #instawomen #travelstyle #mama #love #instalove #instagood #mumlife #photooftheday #wanderlust #mumstyle #blogger

Love...Rainy Days It’s a rainy day in Toronto. For me, it’s been a nice respite from the heat in both 🇬🇧 and 🇨🇦. Today is for cuddles with my bubs, creamy hot chocolate, a good book (when Baby Luca allows) and sweatpants! Mmm...delicious! . . . #love... #rainydays #rain #stalbansmums #torontomoms #cuddles #bookstagram #goodquotes #qotd #loveluca18 #loveluca #babyluca #mumlife #expat #pregnancy #newmum #firsttimemum #f4f #parenting #baby #instawomen #strongwomen #mama #love #instalove #instagood #honestmama

Love...Winnie “We didn’t realise we were making memories. We just knew we were having fun”. I adore Winnie the Pooh. Reading Winnie stories to Baby Luca was special for me as it was a book I enjoyed as a child. On a recent visit back to @stalbanscity 🇬🇧 Luca enjoyed a trip with myself & his grandparents to the beautiful @aldenhamcountrypark to meet Pooh bear. I’d definitely recommend it here ~ lovely picnic spot, farm, walks & of course, 100 Aker Wood! . . . #love... #winniethepooh #christopherrobin #aldenhamcountrypark #100akerwood #stalbansmums #stalbans #photoinspiration #loveluca18 #loveluca #lovelife #familygoals #babyluca #expat #pregnancy #newmum #firsttimemum #f4f #babiesofinstagram #instawomen #strongwomen #mama #love #instalove #instagood #mumlife #momlife #photooftheday #storytime

Love...Faith Religion is a topic which comes up quite frequently and can sometimes be contentious. My husband and I are from different cultures and faiths, which can sometimes cause issues, however overall, our underlying values & morals are aligned and we have mutual respect, and that’s what I believe matters. Deciding what religion to bring up Luca was easy. Me being Hindu & my husband leaning towards Agnostic, we decided that he would be Hindu but that we would also teach him about other faiths. Baby Luca loved his first visit to the temple when he was just 6 weeks old! . . . #love... #faith #culture #values #qotd #quotes #goodquote #religion #hindu #agnostic #multifaith #mixedraced #loveluca18 #loveluca #mixedracemarriage #babyluca #mumlife #expat #pregnancy #newmum #firsttimemum #f4f #parenting #baby #instawomen #strongwomen #mama #love #instalove #instagood #honestmama

Love...Movies It sounds counterintuitive but going to the cinema with a baby is awesome. No really, it is! @moviesformommies facilitates moms to go to the cinema with their babies, providing changing facilities, subtitles (useful for when the babies get a bit vocal!), reduced volume etc. I loved the experience - I watched @crazyrichasians which was great btw. A great daytime activity to do with mommy friends, your partner, caregiver or solo! . . . #love... #movies #cinema #moviesformommies #babycinema #toronto #crazyrichasians #stalbans #photoinspiration #loveluca18 #loveluca #lovelife #lovethejourney #babyluca #expat #pregnancy #newmum #firsttimemum #f4f #babiesofinstagram #instawomen #strongwomen #mama #love #instalove #instagood #mumlife #momlife #photooftheday

Love...Everyday Luca is now nearly 7.5 months old and already has 5 teeth! As he shoves everything into his mouth and chews on his beloved @sophielagirafeuk (favourite teething toy by far!) people look at me sympathetically saying “is he teething?”. Poor baby and Poor parents right! It’s no fun but we’ve been trying to mitigate the discomfort through different things incl. homemade fruit & yoghurt popsicles and teething powder by @ashtonandparsons. For us, it’s meant some long days and sleepless nights. When I’m feeling a bit grouchy I remind myself that these baby years are short & ever so precious. Embrace the chaos, Mama! . . . #love... #teething #sophielagirafe #ashtonandparsons #firstteeth #thankful #qotd #quotes #goodquote #patience #loveyourself #loveluca18 #loveluca #lovelife #lovelight #lovethejourney #babyluca #mumlife #expat #pregnancy #newmum #firsttimemum #f4f #parenting #baby #instawomen #strongwomen #mama #love #instalove #instagood

Love...Timing We are (arguably) often living in a growing culture of impatience where instant gratification is making us perpetually impatient. However, look around, we’re all at different stages in life. And that’s OK! You’re where you need to be at this moment. For me, that’s sat on my balcony with a cup of tea after I’ve put Baby Luca to bed (for now!). Trust the timing! . . . #love... #trust #trusttheprocess #timingiseverything #blessed #thankful #qotd #quotes #goodquote #patience #loveyourself #loveluca18 #loveluca #lovelife #lovelight #lovethejourney #babyluca #mumlife #expat #pregnancy #newmum #firsttimemum #f4f #parenting #baby #instawomen #strongwomen #mama #love #instalove #instagood

Love...Parks Since having Luca, I’ve been frequenting parks more. Its a great way of getting fresh air, vitamin d, exercise & spending quality time with bubs. This was taken at High Park in Toronto ~ a great big park in the city with a lovely cafe, walking trails, scenic train and a kids playground. Luca absolutely loves the swings! Go on Mamas & Papas, Park it up! . . . #love... #flowers #parklife #park #highpark #toronto #stalbans #photoinspiration #loveyourself #loveluca18 #loveluca #lovelife #lovethejourney #postpartumfitness #exercise #babyluca #mumlife #expat #pregnancy #newmum #firsttimemum #f4f #parenting #babiesofinstagram #instawomen #strongwomen #mama #love #instalove #instagood

Love...Gratitude In between nursing, night time feeds, early wake ups, preparing solids, multiple laundry loads, constant clean ups etc... the list seems never ending(!) it can sometimes feel quite overwhelming. This is a reminder to just, stop, take a moment and give thanks. Today, and everyday, my heart is full of infinite gratitude for all that I have! Thank you!
