Jenson: 14 months old

It's the start of a new month which means it's time for another baby update! Jenson is now 14 months old and the last month has been spent dealing with four three ts: teething, talking, (almost) toddling and tantrums! It certainly ain't all rosy in our household! Teething: Jenson now has at least 12 teeth.… Continue reading Jenson: 14 months old

Saturday Share #59

Man, it's been a great week in the blogosphere! So many people have given me food for thought and kept me entertained, with Comic Con trailers, recipes to try, must-use Instagram hashtags and even a discussion on contraception. Grab yourself a nice chilled drink (just me? So hot!!!) and enjoy. Lifestyle Alice wants us to… Continue reading Saturday Share #59

Jenson: Nine months old

Yep, my baby boy is now nine months old - three quarters of the way to his first birthday! I was reminded last week just how quickly the time goes and how you can never get it back.

Follow Friday #38

Ah, this poor blog is feeling so neglected. I've been favouring sleep over time for reading/writing and last week's half-written Follow Friday never got finished/posted. Poor little thing. Anyhoo, here's the result of an attempt to clear some of the 1000+ saved posts on my Bloglovin account! Lifestyle Yaz is bloody fed up of that… Continue reading Follow Friday #38

Jenson: Eight months old

I know I start every monthly update amazed at how fast the time has gone but this last month has definitely gone by a lot quicker than the rest. It probably has something to do with the fact that I go back to work on Monday and I don't feel like I did enough with… Continue reading Jenson: Eight months old

jenson's weaning journey

Our weaning journey so far

Weaning. Now there's a scary word if ever a new parent heard it! It can be pretty daunting thinking about when and how to start the process, especially when there's so much conflicting advice out there. I think everyone I've spoken to about it has started a different way but we had a very clear… Continue reading Our weaning journey so far

Jenson: Seven months old

Last Wednesday our 'little' bundle of love turned seven months old. It doesn't sound like that significant an age but he can now move on to the next stage of Ella's Kitchen food, which means meats, casseroles, spag bol and other yumminess. And I'm making more of an effort with baby-led weaning. I was really… Continue reading Jenson: Seven months old
