How to get a cat ready to have a baby in the house


Our cat, Orla Kitty, is a very important member of our family. When we were planning to have a baby, one thing we agreed on was that we would make lots of effort to get the cat ready for having a baby in the house. We felt as though we knew our cat very well

Baby Yoga Review


At six months old, RLT has done three terms of baby yoga! Not bad, ey? Not your every day baby activity, so here is our review! Firstly, baby yoga classes in the UK, are nothing like the extreme videos that you may have been of a woman in Egypt throwing babies around! OMG, I couldn’t

Note to self – me six months ago


Note to self – to me six months ago, knowing what I know now. I’ve decided to write a post to myself six months ago, to get down the things I’ve learned and to encapsulate what a journey the past six months have been! Hi Crabstix So your little boy is due about now, these

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

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

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

World Smile Day


‘Send me a picture of Reuben smiling’ was the instruction I received on WhatsApp – I thought ‘awww his daddy must need cheering up at work’. How silly of me. Next thing I see popping up on my facebook feed is that particular image of RLT promoting World Smile Day and for readers of Hartlepool Mail

8.5 months pregnant update


16 days until the little fella is due! There is whole lot that needs doing first, as we moved in to an old house, which requires lots of TLC. Today I can’t flipping move. I thought I was doing well trying to do my bit but my body literally won’t let me move today. Everything
