FarFaria App | Review & Giveaway

Ellen / October 31, 2014

I guess it’s a sign of the times (god that made me sound so old!) but Aidan loves TV, smart phones and the iPad, I would love him to enjoy books, so when I found an app that incorporated both I knew it would be perfect for us! I must admit I was waiting in anticipation to begin using it,…

Aidan, monthly update

5 month update | Aidan

Ellen / October 30, 2014

Size-wise:  I haven’t had Aidan weighed this month but I would estimate about 10-11 kg (1.7 stone). He is now in 6-9 month clothes 🙁 Sleep: The beginning of the month we experienced a little bit of the dreaded ‘4 month sleep regression’ but we have moved past that stage and you sleep from 7:30/8pm until 8/9 in the morning. Also, you…

#wickedwednesday, photo post


Ellen / October 29, 2014

Ok so I may have laughed at this a little too much than I should. This face is the result of listening to a voice recording of baby Emma (12 weeks old) talking to her teddy. Whatever she was saying A did not like it! You know you’re a hardcore #wickedwednesday linkeruper (I hear that’s the techincal term!) when you…

Eggless Chocolate Cookies | Recipe

Ellen / October 28, 2014

A few nights ago, Clayton decided that he wanted cookies but we had none in the house so he said he would bake them (this is the man who can’t melt chocolate). Seen as this was a spur of the moment job we had no egg and no chocolate chips so I wondered how he would make them but I…

Aidan, by Aidan, day in the life, routine

A day in the life of A

Ellen / October 24, 2014

9:04am: Mommy finally woke up, I’ve been looking at her for ages! 9:10am: We went downstairs. Mommy changed my nappy and gave me a bottle. Nothing like a nice bottle when you wake up. 9:25am: Mom made me watch a TV show about people watching TV shows?! Grown ups are strange! She ate her breakfast, and didn’t share as usual.…

My Water Baby

Ellen / October 22, 2014

As I mentioned in my #happydays post, on Sunday me & A went swimming! We took part in a water babies taster class. Aidan hated bath time when he was born, then loved it, then hated it so I thought swimming might help him get over any fear he might be experiencing. Unfortunately you’re not allowed to take photos during the…

Beaba Review | Weaning

Ellen / October 20, 2014

Preparing Aidan’s food I recently posted about my baby weaning meals, so I thought I would tell you about what products I’ve depended on for the weaning process.  I like matching sets, colourful items and the easiest route possible, Beaba ticks all those boxes. I spent hours online (I’m starting to feel like I say this a lot! I swear I do…
