The Elephant of Frimley* by Nicholas Rawls is a love story - between two sisters and the elephant they discover in their back garden and also between a father and the daughters he wrote this story for. Rawls' story, illustrated by Louise Jewell, started as a bedtime story for his children and I love that… Continue reading Book review: The Elephant of Frimley by Nicholas Rawls
Jenson has almost as many books as I do, so this bookstand would have to just hold his favouritest of favourites, but look how cute! It would make a perfect nursery accessory for babies who only have a small book collection so far. Elephant bookstand, £14.00
I don't know what it is about elephants but they seem to make popular toys for babies. Even I bought a load of elephant items for Jenson - probably a subconscious childhood thing as they're my mum's favourite animal and I had a fair few myself growing up. The Gro Company have an adorable range… Continue reading Item of the day: Elephants from The Gro Company

Now here's a great gift for a new baby - an elephant lounge buddy from Argos. Great from birth through to tummy time and sitting up by themselves, it's freakin' adorable. It's £39.99. If elephants aren't your/their thing, you can get a lion or owl.

Although I'm not classing Jenson as a toddler yet, as he's not walking, if you're looking at 12-18 months and 18-24 months old clothes, like I am, that's generally the toddler stage, right? Plus the word toddler is great for an alliterative blog post title! Here are some freakin' cute outfits I've found for under… Continue reading Ten cute toddler outfits for under a tenner

I know we've only just decorated Jenson's room but I'm already pinning ideas for when he's older.

You can get a matching duvet set, fitted sheet, cushion and curtains, with up… Continue reading Item of the day: Jungle bedding from Vertbaudet
One of the best things we've bought/had bought for Jenson is his bear play gym. Even now that he's outgrown the detachable toys, he still loves playing on the mat and I'd recommend a stuffed playmat to anyone with a new baby. This blue elephant one from Not on the High Street is adorable. They… Continue reading Item of the day: Elephant playmat from Not on the High Street
