About Me


Welcome to my blog! My name is Tomi and I am so many things to different people and I recently became a mum. I work per-time with a Cloud computing firm in Lagos, contribute to a natural hair blog and work full time running a photography business with my husband.

The cuddle blog is a family lifestyle blog that was born out of the need to document and share my experience trying to get a hang of being a first time mum, Faith, parenting and working from home while remaining sane through it all.

I write about my experiences trying to bring beauty out of the chaos and my journey to learning to balance these responsibilities. I do this as a coping mechanism for myself and to connect with other mums with similar experiences because no matter how we look at it, we mums need all the support we can get.

Pregnancy Diary 2: 1st Trimester || The Cuddle Blog

After the euphoria of finding out we were expecting our first child faded, We were hit with the reality that comes with pregnancy. Google became my friend that stuck closer because we hadn't announced to anyone except family which meant I couldn't talk to anyone about it yet.

Pregnancy Diary 1: How we found out || The Cuddle Blog

Before we got married, we talked about having kids and our desire was to wait a couple of months before we tried, that was the agreement but God had other plans. 
We were not trying and we were not not trying. To be honest, I was terrified of getting pregnant because I knew the responsibility it comes with - or I thought I knew - after the first 6 months, we already had family concerned for us but we were not worried at all as we had working on ourselves and getting to know each other better to focus on. Looking back now,  I am glad we had that time before we got pregnant.

You know how every month before you see your period it just feels like you're pregnant, I had those moments, I would make my husband buy me Pregnancy tests and they would all be negative and…

Watching my husband be a Dad || The Cuddle Blog

I could feel the excitement when I told him we were expecting our first child but it was nothing compared to the Joy he exuded when he held his Son in his arms for the first time. I saw the twinkle in his eyes "The first sign of my strength" He would say.



Why was it so special? Asides the fact that the miracle of the birth of a child is always so special, My Husband had never thought this was going to happen, He got married a little later than most people in his age group when he least expected it and about a year later found out he was going to have a baby. It was surreal which made him all the more grateful for the blessing of a beautiful boy. While I was busy thinking I wasn't quite ready to be a Mum, He was over the moon and making fun of me.
