Living Arrows 1&2/52


I am a bit late to the party, but I have decided to take part in Donna from What the Redhead Said‘s Living Arrows – which is a celebration of childhood! We could all do with a little more celebration in our lives! To quote Donna, “The project originally took it’s name from a poem

RLT’s First Christmas


So, RLT’s first Christmas has been and gone! As usual I got massively anxious about everything, such as having people dig at my parenting methods, RLT getting overwhelmed and out of his routine, the state of the house and the cat feeling left out. Turns out, it wasn’t all that bad (with exception of the

The Christmas Tag


Thank you to the second best Nicola I know 🙂 for the tag (she’s at Mummy to Dex, I recommend you have a look at the supermum she is, mixing up a storm in the kitchen with this baby led weaning malarky). Reading her post this morning got me sooooo Christmassy that I went out

Kielder Review


We chose Kielder as the destination for a winter break and the first holiday for RLT at aged five and a half months. Kielder Waterside is a development within Kielder Water and Forest and within the Leaplish Forest Park, which is also where the Winter Wonderland is based. We opted to go for 4 nights

Capture


I started to think that if RLT looked through images of his childhood, that there would be very few of us together. Therefore, I have had to request that my OH capture some moments when we’re together. Looking after a baby on your own for most of the day means that you get a phone

A few pics from week 21! 


Illness has struck this week, but hasn’t stopped the little man’s personality coming in to it’s own. He loves to laugh <3 RLT is really starting to show his little personality and what he likes and doesn’t like; it is a really exciting stage. Seeing his face when his dad walks into a room is

Four month sleep regression


Four month sleep regression has hit us! After sleeping through 7.30-2am only waking for dummy to be put back in before going off again at 5.30am from around 10 weeks, we seem to have reverted back to needing 1 or 2 night feeds again. I’ve read so much on the subject, so understand that how

Halloween


RLT’s first Halloween saw his cousins come round to trick or treat. Tried to dress him up as Pubert Addams but he was a wriggly little worm –  I saw another mum had done this more successfully than I, and she used hair chalk – will try again next year when he is a little

Rolling…


Rolling! So at day 135 on this earth, RLT decided it was time to roll over. Fortunately, I managed to capture the first time on video! Quite a nice end to his daddy’s week at home. I was very pleased he did it while his dad was at home, the less moments we miss due

Visiting Daddy at work


Rlt loved visiting Daddy in the newsroom! Here he is posing on the social media editor, Debra’s chair. Although it appears Reuben’s lack of sleep last night has taken it’s toll on daddy. R’s daddy is the head of digital at Johnson Press North East and he was doing a Saturday shift, so we popped

Waterbabies


Still can’t watch when I sit and video the under water swims at Waterbabies. I know it is in RLT’s best interests to go, as I definitely don’t want him to be like me around water. I can’t even put my face under the shower for fear of drowning (my Uncle did push me in

Vaccinations


Today is sponsored by baby tv and nurofen thanks for the advice @pics1981 Third round of injections – done. Next ones are at one yearold, which should be fun, as I’ve already specified to my health visitor that I will not be consenting to the combined MMR jab and which for them to source me
