First Baby Teeth

We always thought Baby London’s first tooth would be his top left front tooth.  But that little nubbin of white that poked through the gum disappeared recently after being present for about a month, and instead he’s started getting his teeth through in the more conventional manner. This week his bottom right front tooth made…

Baby on the Move #MinuteMonday

Today’s #MinuteMonday is just a 60 second snapshot at Baby London exercising his new-found skill.  I have eyes at the back of my head now! There’s a little bit with his Grandpa in there too.  My Dad is 80 years old, so videos like this mean all the more.  Plus the song he sings is…

Weaning from Stage 1 to Stage 2

Baby London is now on what I consider the next level of weaning.  If you haven’t read how I started, then here’s the post I wrote. But as a quick recap- we didn’t go down the baby led weaning route, mainly because I’m a wimp and also I just don’t think Baby London would be…

What’s it like to be a Mum?

One thing people don’t tell you about babies is that they sort of hinder your daily life.  Sounds horrible to say, but it’s true! Don’t get me wrong you get used to it and as a Mother it’s something you deal with.. but for those without babies or embarking on a journey now of ‘about…

How to Bath a Baby without a Bath

Due to our upheaval and not being in our own home I’ve had to adjust the way I bath my baby.  Without his bath seat to keep him in place in a big bath I’ve had to learn how to bathe him in the baby bath all over again (and the baby seat won’t fit…

The Bagginses Adventure #MinuteMonday

Here is a new little vlog for #MinuteMonday. Thank you so much to Lucinda over at Teacher2Mummy for hosting it last week.  This move is getting me out of sync!  There’s a reason people hate solicitor’s they take bloody ages to sort anything out! This week’s ‘Monday perk me up’ is a little family vlog…

Is it Possible to Spoil a Baby?

I parent by instinct.  So far so good, I’ve not really read all the guides or books (‘Your Baby Week by Week’ was the only book I read.. and I read it week by week as a feeding guide!) because if I’m honest I’d rather read a good fiction, there is only so much baby…

Essential Story Time Reading: The Velveteen Rabbit

I love reading my Son books.  Whether or not he enjoys it is another matter.  When I read to him he’s usually just clambering all over me.  Sometimes he’ll stop what he’s doing to look at the occasional picture or try to grab a page.  I don’t know what goes on in his mind but…
