Braving Soft play with a 9 month old

Braving Soft play with a 9 month old

The moment Logan started becoming more agile and moving around independently, i.e. crawling, I was going round in my head, what we can do with him to keep him entertained now that, mummies lap is no longer a viable option (unless tired). Then I noticed some mummies blogging about soft play centres, so I was straight onto Google finding out where my nearest soft play centre was, and luckily there is one not too far from Wrexham’s town centre, so…

Logan’s 9 month update

Logan’s 9 month update

I can’t believe that Logan is 9 months already! Time is flying by, i am just so grateful for all the pictures as it’ll be lovely to look back at! Not much is new this month, but there are some updates – yay! Logan is fully crawling now and is into everything, there is nothing he won’t try to put into his mouth, so brushing and mopping is a daily sometimes twice daily chore. He is really good at pulling…

I may not be rich, but I am rich in love <3

I may not be rich, but I am rich in love <3

I may not be rich in money but I am so rich in the family that i have! So I thought I’d write this post because I’ve been involved in a discussion recently about the maternity grant and its eligibility etc. And it’s got me thinking about how I feel being a stay at home mum living in a council house and getting help from the government. Before I begin let me start by telling you how we ended up…

Kiddylicilous – My #wafermoment

Kiddylicilous – My #wafermoment

The lovely Emma Burgham, PR consultant for Kiddylicilous, recently contacted me and asked if I’d be interested sharing my #wafermoment, being a keen lover of the brand I jumped at the chance to get involved. The moment when Logan could start feeding himself and able to sit up unaided was a huge and emotional achievement, because not only was he growing up way too quickly it meant that every day that passed he was becoming that little bit more independent, even if I…

Reading/Singing This probably the most common form of activity used in this household, just because it gives me the opportunity to read to Logan and for him to absorb all these different words and phrases. And I’m a strong believer than reading…

BLW – Banana, Blueberry and Peanut butter oat cookies

I have been wanting to make these cookies for quite some time now, and they are the most simple yet subtly delicious cookies i have ever tasted. Seeing as i had 1 lonely banana left in the fruit bowl, i took advantage and decided to make these. But guess what, it’s not just banana I’m using this time, there are blueberries and peanut butter too! What you will need: 1 ripe banana (Well mashed) As many blueberries as you like (GO…

Where has my baby boy gone?

Where has my baby boy gone?

Growing up too quickly! Every single day I wake up and my baby Logan’s another day older and another day stronger. He has picked up so many new skills recently, pulling himself up to stand, moving around to get to his toys. Every night before i go to bed i sit at my laptop looking through his newborn pictures, wondering just where that time has gone. If only I’d have believed all those mums who told me to treasure the early…
