I mentioned in Florence’s last baby update that she is becoming more and more interested in toys and we incorporate play time into every single day – have done since she was just a couple of weeks old really. We’ve been taking some baby play […]

It’s been a couple of weeks since my last baby update and as the weeks are going by so so quickly these days, I’ve decided to move to monthly updates rather than weekly with other posts about our days out and such as we go […]
We’re now seven weeks into your little life and you are growing so much before our eyes. You’re officially now out of Newborn clothes and well into your 0-3m wardrobe and you now have those gorgeous little rolls on your legs everyone talks about. It must be all that milk! I’m off to get you weighed again today as the Health Visitor forgot to bring her scales & measuring thingy when she came to see us on Tuesday.
Compared to last week we’ve had a considerably quieter few days which I think has been well needed! We had our six week check on Friday and both got a clean bill of health and you were such a good girl putting up with all the prodding and poking.
We headed out super early to the Next sale on Saturday and picked up quite a haul for your wardrobe.
After our early start we popped over to Uncle Dean & Aunty Tasha’s house and we both fell sound asleep on their sofa! Oops!
On Sunday we headed out to Penshurst Place to take a look around the Volks Weald car show with Daddy, Grandad and Aunty Libby. Mama has her eye on a VW camper for us to go adventuring in! You were pretty much centre of attention while we had our lunch as everyone who walked passed made a fuss of you and even the dogs who were there came and had a sniff. You steal the show where ever you go little lady! You loved having a kick about in the hay and taking in all the bright colours, not to mention being carried around the Maize Maze.
We’ve had some super sunny days and so we’ve had a few mornings out in the garden. You really do love being outside. You are most definitely a morning person and at your smiliest as soon as you wake up for the day. You’re also SUCH a fidget bum and wriggle from the moment you wake up to the moment you go to bed! You’re sleeping through from 10pm to around 5am at the moment you clever little poppet – must be all that moving about tiring you out. This week you’ve been busy finding your hands and feet and having all sorts of fun checking them out.
You provide your Daddy with hours of fun and I often find you sitting with strange objects balancing on your head or dressed in funny clothes but you don’t seem to mind. He makes up for it in cuddles!
Alfie is becoming much more used to you now and loves to just be near you and sniff your toes from time to time. You love watching him and touching his fur.
You’re growing far too fast little girl and I’m desperately trying to soak in every single second.
Ahh, week four already! I absolutely love this weeks Mama & Baby style outift combo! I’ve given my wardrobe a bit of a revamp this last couple of weeks thanks to the Summer sales and bold prints seem to have taken over a little! Normally I’d […]
You turned six weeks old yesterday and my goodness you suddenly seem so big! Perhaps it is because we weighed you on Friday (mothercare have scales you can use to weigh your baby – who knew?) and you already weighed 10lb 9oz! The health visitor […]
This weeks fashion post is all about Girl Power thanks to these cute slogan tees from two of our High Street favourites! If you can’t match your daughter while she’s little and can’t protest, when can you?! Afterall ‘Twinning is Winning’ right?
I recently discovered that River Island sell baby clothes! How I missed that during my pregnancy I am not sure, but since stumbling upon their kids collection I cannot stop browsing. We’ve ordered a few things from there for little Florence, but this little tee is by far my favourite. It’s in 0-3m and is quite roomy so will last through the summer. I love the ‘Girls Can Change The World’ slogan on the front and check out this adorable little capped tee sleeves. I’ve paired it with this cute handmade skirt from Do Make and Mend who I found on etsy. I can’t get enough of bold & beautiful prints for both Florence and I so when I saw this summery skirt I couldn’t resist.
I found this ‘You Go Girl’ tee in NewLook for a fiver! Teamed with my denim shorts I picked up from Matalan in the sale (you MUST check out there in store sale, I honestly could have bought one of everything – oops!) They come with a tie up belt with an Aztec embroidered pattern for the extra touch of detail and considering I’ve been so self conscious about my legs since I had Florence, I really like the length of them too. This is just a really easy outfit for a summers day.
I’m a day late with this one again Poppet, the weeks just seem to be racing away at the moment and I can’t believe you’re already five whole weeks old! Again we’ve packed rather a lot into the last seven days with lots of visitors, […]
Thank goodness for cooler weather! I finally have my happy, chilled out baby back and you’re so much more relaxed now that we’re not cooped up in one room with a whole load of fans blowing and can get out and about without worrying about […]
