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

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

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

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

NFL


Mark has gone to see NFL’s The New York Giants at Twickenham today. He said he can’t wait to take #rlt with him – but he’s already seen them, I have a certificate to prove it! When I was three months pregnant, we decided to go to New York for 10 days over Christmas – we wanted

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
