Hey, Mr Fox

Hey, Mr FoxFoxes, foxes everywhere, thats what it feels like at the minute. I’m not complaining though as with their cute little faces and their autumnal colouring they make the perfect addition to any baby or toddlers wardrobe or bedroom.  Continue Reading

Rest Your Sleepyhead

SleepyheadWhoever invented the phrase sleeping like a baby must have never actually had a baby. Most of the babies I know don’t sleep very well at all including A a lot of the time. Since the last time I spoke about sleep we have gone through quite a few different phases. During one of these phases A would not settle at night at all and was only happy to go to sleep when she was being held by me.  Continue Reading

5 Months Old

5 month oldLast week A became 5 month old but the weather was so amazing I didn’t have time to post an update. When the sun shines in Scotland you really need to make the most of it and that will probably be it now till the spring!

So A can now roll easily from her back to her front and back again. If you put her down to play and leave the room she will be an entirely different place by the time you come back, normally with one of her toys in her mouth smiling at her little adventure. Continue Reading

Pink and Blue

RainbowWhen I was pregnant I decided that I didn’t want to know if I was having a girl or a boy. This meant that most of the clothes I purchased where from the boys section of the store as I felt that these were more wearable by both sexes so it didn’t matter what we had. When A was born we were bombarded with pink, pink and more pink.  Continue Reading

Bugaboo Bee 3 and Me

Bugaboo Bee 3 and MeIn a previous post I mentioned that I was having a few little issues with the buggy we had purchased and said that it might end up not being my only one. The thing that finally pushed me into getting a new one was that when A grew out of the baby nest section of the Silver Cross she would have to face away from me. There was no option to keep the buggy parent facing and I just felt that A was still to small to be looking out into the world and not able to see me.  Continue Reading

Tiny CottonsIf money were no object I’d purchase nearly everything from Spanish label Tiny Cottons new collection named Hibernate. I’ve fallen in love with it all, and would love to see A wearing their designs. I’m really tempted to get her something but the question is can I justify spending the money.  Continue Reading

4 Months Old

4 Months OldI’m a few days late with this picture as I really should have put it up on the 28th but sometimes things don’t always go to plan when you have a small person to look after. So A is now 4 months old and is getting more of a personality everyday.  Continue Reading

Time For Me

TeaTime to yourself when you have a young baby is a rare treat so I’ve been trying to make the most of these moments. When A takes a nap I normally run around the house tidying up, putting washing on or making sure we are organised for the next days adventures. Continue Reading

Sweet Zzzzzzz’s

Sweet DreamsPeople are forever asking if A is a good baby. My answer is of course she is a good baby as how can a baby be bad? I think what they are referring to is whether she sleeps or not and does she sleep all night letting me get some rest.  Continue Reading

Simple Baby Gym

Baby GymLots of baby gyms that you can buy in the shops are large, garish and very expensive for what they are. For this reason I decided to make my own using some simple supplies from the DIY store and then attaching toys that A already had. Continue Reading
