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.

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).

Children's Gift Guide


This year is Isabelle's first Christmas, and I know that she is going to be completely overwhelmed with all the wrapping paper and sparkly lights. It's also the first Christmas that Emily has requested certain things from Santa, such as a Sylvanian families toilet and a trolls blind bag - no seriously, that is ALL she has asked for. I thought that I would put together a gift guide of a few things that I have got over the past few weeks for the girls.

How To Protect Your Eyes From Electronic Screens


I never know how to answer that question, is there? When I was younger I remember my grandma telling us not to sit too close to the telly else we will have square eyes, or damage our eyes. The smart ass 11-year old I was, asked the option who informed me that you can't actually damage your eyes by sitting too close to the screen, but you can damage them from watching tv for an extensive amount of time.
