Things I’ve been most grateful for in 2017

As we go into the new year, I’ve been thinking about how quickly this year has flown by and how grateful I am for so many things; 1. First and foremost and above all else, HANDS DOWN would obviously be my daughter, Olive Chemeli Karanja-Mutiso born march 6th 2017 (2017!!!! who’s born in the 2000’s??!!…

Ellen’s Events

Last night, Olive, Wayne and I got to witness mum in her element and LOVED IT! Mum had an event to decorate and she KILLED IT! We are so proud of you mum! The event was Jamaican themed and also had to be a bit elegant, she’s been explaining her ideas to us over the…

All smiles 😊

Olive has began smiling, (smiling because she’s happy, not neonatal smiling) and it’s about the cutest thing in the world!!!!! On saturday I ran into a  family friend of ours that I have not seen in a while, Marcus Ngugi, and let me tell you, my little girl could not wipe her very gummy grin…

Moments ❤

So, I caught this moment the other day when we were having lunch at Muthaiga country club, my parents look like they are back together and have had another child, it was so beautiful to watch as they sat together laughing, talking and kissing baby O. Olive being cheeky :p

Ducky the protector!

Ducky, or so I’ve temporarily named him till Olive picks out her own name, watches over Olive wherever she sleeps. He used to be Wayne’s stuffed animal when he was a baby, I just find it so precious that it’s hers now😊

Beautiful milk stains

MY MILK IS BACK!!! WOOHHOOO!!!Never thought I’d be this HAPPY to have milk stains all over my shirt. I’ve even just squirted all over Olives face and the bed. I have to start wearing breast pads agan, never thought I’d be excited about that either! Big thanks to all of you who gave me advice…

❤ HAPPY ONE MONTH TO MY BABY GIRL ❤

I honestly can not believe how fast this month has gone, I feel like I will blink and she will be 1 years old already. I want her to stay this small for a little longer 😢
