Happy Days #07

I linked up with Tiny foot steps and what katy said hosts of #happydays. I love this weekly round up link!

Out and About 

Ok hands up, I admit it, I’ve been super lazy this week. I visited my Nan and done the grocery shopping at that about sums up my activity outside the house. In my defence, the weather has been awful and the majority of the week we were on flood warnings.

Fun at home 

We had a play date with baby Emma at the beginning of the week. I don’t really think Aidan even knew she was there though. Then he went to sleep, such a great host!

Aidan had toast for the first time and although it was super messy, he loved it. Oh and a similar experience with yogurt too.

I tried some messy play with Aidan this week, using spaghetti and food colouring. Well, it does exactly what it says on the tin, it was very messy and I am still find marks of red food dye on his Tripp Trapp (who said white was a good idea?)

Less fun was the teething baby I had at the beginning of the week. How heartbreaking is teething? He looks so terrified, like he had no idea why this was happening. Luckily the calpol would help ease the pain and let him get some sleep.

We also moved Aidan into his own room last night. I will be writing a post about that during the week.

Shameless plugging here, it’s the last few days of my FarFaria giveaway if you haven’t entered yet .

Time for Me 

I only noticed now that last week my ‘time for me’ section somehow disappeared. Like all other weeks I’ve not been too great at this but I did manage to begin a nail treatment when Aidan was napping. I think if all goes well with Aidan in his own room I might start make more time for me, having the ability to turn the light on in a room can make a huge difference ha ha.

Happiest Moment 

Yesterday evening when Aidan absolutely cracked up at my hair (which was in a top knot), and afterwards when I found his tickles (even though they have since disappeared). His smile and laugh make me smile so much! 

Next Week

Clayton’s got a few days off at the beginning of the week so hopefully we will get some dry weather and we can get out of the house for a while.


Until next time,

  1. Aidan is clearly loving that yoghurt. 🙂 He has such a lovely smile too! I’m sorry he’s been feeling horrible with the teething. It’s such a rotten time for both mummy and baby. Thankfully it seems to come in stages as each set of teeth come in so hopefully he’ll be over this one soon!

  2. Aidan certainly looked like he enjoyed his first ever yogurt – super cute.
    I totally hear you with the teething thing – it’s so distressing for baby and mum. Hope it passes for him soon – good old Calpol!
    It is nice to get your bedroom back, isn’t? Hope it means more time for you. 🙂
    Thanks for joining in with our #happydayslinky.

  3. Gorgeous photo of Aidan laughing and I love the yogurt one too. Teething is horrible, poor Aidan and poor you – hope those teeth come through quickly and don’t cause too much more bother.

  4. Sorry to hear about Aidan teething, its so horrid for you both! Great pict of him with the yogurt, he looks like he loved it! hope it all goes okay with Aidan in his own room, its such a big milestone.. Hope you have a great week

  5. Aww baby tickles are just the cutest! Big lol over the food colouring- white is never a good idea haha! Red is also the worst of the food colourings- I can never get it out of my hands when I make red icing!!
    There is a brilliant thing you can buy for teething- it is something you rub on their gums. I cannot for the life of me remember what it is called but you get it behind the pharmacy counter in boots.
    I will keep an eye out for the new bedroom post!
    Thank you for joining in #HappyDaysLinky x

  6. Aww, it looks like Aidan made a great job of that yoghurt, such a cheeky little picture.

    Sorry to hear that he’s suffering with his teeth, I hope that he feels better soon.

    Well done for making some time to start a nail treatment, I hope you get more of a chance for me-time now you can turn the bedroom light on, haha! =)

    Have a great week xx
