Boy Mum Blog-Hop!

Hello!  I'm Emma, a 28 year old mum to TWO bright little boys... Ollie (Oliver) just turned 4 and Nate (Nathaniel) is 6 months old today.  I've been a stay at home mum since Ollie was born and would like to call myself a housewife too but I'm crap at being domestic.  I've been married for 5 years to my awesome hubby James.  He's a geek...

We got pregnant with Ollie soon after we were married and the pregnancy went by smoothly (and the birth, though a little traumatic).  It took us a lot longer to have Nate... 2 years and 2 miscarriages to be exact.  For this reason, our family is complete... we don't ever plan on trying for anymore and I love being the only girl in the house.

I LOVE being a boy mama.  I have fun everyday and am definitely kept on my toes.  They are already great friends and so funny when they are together... and I look forward to bringing them both up to be good husbands and good fathers.  I love our life filled with trucks, trains, spiderman, mud, pee on the toilet seat, random rocks found in pockets and standing on legos!

  1. Visiting from the boy mom blog hop. Your boys are beautiful and it is so awesome to get to stay at home with the boys! I've experienced the loss of two of my babies as well and I just wanted to send you big hugs across the miles. It's a pleasure to "meet" you and your precious family today!

  2. Hi from Scotland and another boy mum from the blog hop. Your boys are so cute, love the pic of them snuggled up together.

  3. Hi, Emma! Cute blog and adorable boys you have there. I am a mom of 2 boys myself and love every second of it. Blessings from across the ocean!

  7. I LOVE your wallpaper. So cute! Your boys are precious. I have one of each, and my boy is definitely more rambunctious than my girl. I love how their littler personalities differ.

  8. Stopping by for the blog hop! So nice to meet other boy moms! I have two boys ( and we are done also) Ben is 2.5 years old and Ian is 7 months old! Similar ages in our boys :) Looking forward to following your blog!
