Isabelle's 6 Month Update


Happy half a year baby!

Isabelle now weighs 16lb6oz, we are still in size 3 nappies but she is in a mixture of 3-6 month and 6-9 month clothing, She seems to be too tall for the 3-6 month stuff, but too skinny for the 6-9 stuff.

Sensory Play Box [Review]


Emily was very kindly gifted a sensory play box, and I couldn't wait to share it with you. Sensory play box is a monthly subscription box, each box contains 7-10 goodies a month, there is also a really handy description card included in every box, which tells you about the items included in the box which I found incredibly useful.

Christmas With JD Williams


We were recently given the opportunity to work with JD Williams and review a selection of their Christmas stuff. I hadn't ever shopped with JD Williams so I wasn't really sure what to expect, but I did get some absolutely beautiful bits, and they had a wide variety of lovely things on their website. I also have my eye on some gorgeous boots, which I can't wait to purchase.

Ice Skating For The First Time [Ordinary Days]


For a while now I have been talking about taking Emily ice skating, she has shown a real interest in it and really wanted to go, with Christmas fast approaching now seemed like the ideal time to take her, just because there are so many pop-up ice skating rinks near Christmas time. Sam is dead against going ice skating, he said he knows that he would be no good and didn't want to give it a go, which worked out fine for us, as I did need someone to sit with Isabelle (of course she is far too young to go on the ice).

Visiting Santa At Drayton Manor [Ordinary Days]


We make an effort to take Emily to see Santa at the beginning of December every year to kick start our year the right way, and this year was no different. Normally we would take her to our local farm, but she has been going on and on about returning to Drayton Manor, and Thomas land. When I saw the adverts for there magical Christmas I knew that Emily would absolutely love it, and the fact everything was so festive, and there was a promise of snow - I was sold. With it also being Isabelle's first christmas, I knew I wanted to make it a special one anyway and that is exactly what it was.

Christmas Eve Basket


Every year I put together a christmas eve box for Emily, this year was no different aside from the fact I had to make one for Isabelle too - which was extremely fun, but a little more difficult for Isabelle as there were lots of things that wern't age appropriate for isabelle that I would have put in Emily's, and also she can't have the same sweet treats as Emily as she is dairy free (no problem I can find dairy free treats, but she isn't quite old enough for them at the moment anyway).
