Mummy Mondays – Benjamin Turns One! 

I still can’t believe my baby boy, my youngest child is now one! The last year went by in a flash, and yet Benjamin has grown up so much over the past couple of months, his development has come on leaps and bounds and I’m so proud of him.  Talking  Benjamin loves the sound of his own voice and will now copy or attempt to copy a fair few words...

Mummy Mondays – Benjamin at 9 Months 

I tried to avoid starting another of these posts by commenting on how quickly the time is going by but *whispers* how is my baby boy already 9 months old?! With our wedding just over 6 weeks away, this year truly has gone by in a flash, and my baby is beginning to look more and more like a little boy. This month has seen his development continue…  Moving Benjamin...

Mummy Mondays – Dove Baby Range for Sensitive Skin Review

I’ve suffered from sensitive skin since I was a child. I used to have eczema, and it still flares up from time to time. When it comes to the children, and Benjamin especially, I try and find products that are sensitive enough for their young skin.  I’ve only ever used water wipes with Benjamin, as I don’t like the added ingredients other brands put in, and I’ve made sure not...

Mummy Mondays – Getting our Bottle on with Tommee Tippee

Just before Christmas the lovely people at Tommee Tippee sent us some things from their range for baby Benjamin. As he’s now 3 months old, although I’m still breastfeeding, I am wanting to be out and about a little more, and this means I’ve been expressing more often.  Benjamin hasn’t taken very well to bottles in the past, as he much prefers the skin to skin contact that comes with...

Mummy Mondays- What I Miss about Being Pregnant

I’m the first to admit that I hate pregnancy. I’ve been through it three times now and I just can’t enjoy it, no matter how much I try. That’s not to say I’m not majorly grateful to be able to have carried all three of my children to term and given birth to them, I am really lucky, but that doesn’t mean I have to enjoy the pregnancy.  Saying that,...

Fofolino Luxury Muslin Review 

Benjamin has reached the age where he’s either spitting up his milk or dribbling where his teeth seem to already be coming through. For this reason, it’s vital we have a muslin cloth to hand at all times. Fofolino was created by a mother of four young children aged 2-5 who wanted something a little more luxurious from the burping cloths she had experienced so far.  The muslin squares are...

Mummy Monday – Benjamin Turns One Month 

How is my baby already a month old? It seems crazy how fast time goes when you aren’t heavily pregnant and wishing the days away anymore!  Benjamin turned one month on Friday and I seriously feel like I’ve blinked and missed the past month. I think it’s because he’s going to be my last baby that I feel I need to bottle up the emotions of these first months and...

Mummy Monday – How I Utilise my Time with a Newborn 

Baby Benjamin is almost 3 weeks old and I’ve finally started feeling like I’m getting the hang of this 3 children thing. It helps that Cameron is at school and Carly is still at nursery 3 days a week. I’ve worked out how to make the most of my time now there’s a new little one around and thought I would share for any other new mums who are feeling...

My Monthly Plans – November 

I can’t believe how quickly October went! I think it’s because I was wishing time away at the start as I wanted baby Benjamin to be born, and then after he was born time has flown with Ed’s paternity leave going by in the blink of an eye.  I’m looking forward to November as it’s a month full of birthday celebrations for our family, and is one step closer to...
