What to buy a six month old for Christmas


What do you buy a six month old for Christmas?  If someone asked them what you actually wanted for Christmas, it would probably be to FINALLY get that dummy in your own mouth, or your foot! Having a June baby is great as you can split the wants and needs in six monthly intervals! So

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

My Alphabetical Year in Review! 2016


My 2016 alphabetical year in review! Big thanks to the lovely Maria over at Mummy to Logan  for posting the original Alphabetical year in review, and bringing it to my attention. I should be doing housework, but RLT has decided he can’t sleep in his cot today, only in my bed, so I have to

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

The RockingMotherhood Tag


Thank you to the lovely Nicola at Mummytodex for sharing the # RockingMotherhood tag with me. I have decided to take part as Nic is so kind as to have sent me a few things now and I’m a bit scared she’s going to stop if I don’t stop being lazy! . I have listed the

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

How do you feel when you give birth?


I literally couldn’t describe how I felt after I gave birth. The adrenaline and tiredness was all too much. So when my sister-in-law asked me how I felt, I simply took a few photographs. At the time I couldn’t bear anyone to look at them, but now almost five months on, I think it is

sleep regression

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

Nuna Rebl drama


So this week a german safety test put the Nuna Rebl through it’s paces at 40mph and the results were terrifying. The seat base just snapped! Uk safety tests are done at 30mph at which the Rebl is thought to be fine, which? Found out about the German safety test and indicated to readers that
