Mummy Mondays – Benjamin at 18 Months

Ok, ok, I know every mum sounds like a broken record as their child reaches another birthday or milestone, but seriously, how is Benjamin already 18 months?! It seems like so little time ago that he was being placed into my arms after a whirlwind labour, and yet here we are with a total tearaway toddler on our hands! The beginning of this year has shown a huge change in...

Mummy Mondays – A Benjamin Update

During the first year of Benjamin’s life I documented each month with his milestones. Although I knew I didn’t want to carry this on indefinitely, after all, not much happens from month to month after a certain point, it was still a bit sad when I stopped featuring him on the blog so I thought I would do a little update.

Mummy Mondays – Benjamin at 10 Months 

I have a 10 month old baby!

This month has seen his development continue…  Moving Benjamin...

Benjamin at 8 Months 

The months are still flying by. I feel like an awful mum as I actually totally missed Benjamin turning 8 months on Sunday. In my defence, we had an absolutely amazing weekend and I spent Sunday being the ‘hostess with the mostess’ at our family barbecue.  Better late than never, I did a little photo shoot in the garden with Benjamin’s milestone cards. He finally started sitting up unaided properly...

Mummy Mondays – Benjamin at 7 months 

It’s a total cliche, but every time I find myself bringing out the milestone cards as another month passes, I can’t quite believe how fast time is going. Benjamin turned 7 months just under 2 weeks ago and this month I feel he’s really advanced in his development.  Moving  No longer content with staying in one place, Benjamin now rolls everywhere. Ok, it’s not quite crawling, but he gets where...
