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 […]
Category: FLORENCE IVY
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 […]
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 steer clear of them but it seems I’m drawn to them just lately, both for me & Florence.
We headed out to the Volks Weald VW festival today and it seemed only right to bring out the bold to match the rainbow coloured campers.
Florence wore this absolutely beautiful romper from Boots Mini Club. I just LOVE this bright floral print, it’s so colourful and summery. Mini Club clothes are among some of my favourites for her and make up a huge percentage of her wardrobe. They’re made from super soft fabric which stays brilliant wash after wash and their designs are just gorgeous.
I wore this bardot dress that I picked up from Matalan and loved it. Not only does it hide my baby belly with the layered detail it’s a good length too. The big flower print is so not within my comfort zone, but I actually felt really good in it. Paired with a denim jacket from H&M and my sandals from Boohoo.com it was the perfect outfit for a summers day out.
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 […]
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, a lunch date in town, going to your first birthday party, a day out with Donna & Joshua and a billion cuddles not to mention today’s unexpected trip to the doctors! (I will get to that bit in a minute).
You already seem so big to us! You’re so super duper long but still don’t quite fit into 0-3m clothes so we’re exhausting mothercare’s up to 1 month range and Boots Mini Kids as I can’t find anywhere else that sells anything that fits you! You have been busy practicing your best smiley faces and you’ve now learned how to poke your tongue out! We weren’t sure whether you would be able to do it with your tongue tie but you definitely aren’t being stopped by anything. Such a determined little thing.
You’re amazingly strong and while we probably don’t do dedicated tummy time as much as we should, you can push yourself up and stay there for ages – especially on Mama’s chest. You remind us of a little turtle. When you fall asleep on me or Daddy you are such a wiggler and wiggle your way into what look like the most uncomfortable positions but get so cross if we move you!
You seem to have made friends with Alfie for sure. Wherever you are, he goes and sometimes I end up with both of you on my lap!
We used our baby carrier for the first time this week and Mama is a definite baby wearing convert! It makes getting out of the house so much easier and means we can walk the dog just us two too. While your pushchair is still fab and we use it for longer days out & shopping you love being snuggled up close to Mama on the go.
While technically this should go in next weeks update, we’ve had a bit of an eventful day here. Mama found a lump on your tummy, fairly high up. It was soft & squishy to touch and I could move it a little but after a quick phone chat with Granny I decided to book you in to see the doctor to see what was going on. He wasn’t really sure what it is, and so has referred you to the hospital to have your tummy scanned so they can see if there’s anything strange going on in there.
We might have to wait 2 weeks before we get a date for your scan. Safe to say we’re a bit worried but trying not to get too stressed. Daddy came home early and we’ve had a look and it seems to have gone down so we’re just keeping an eye on you over the next few days and if it comes back we’re going to head to the hospital to see what they say. Two weeks is a long time to just sit & worry!
We love you little one. More and more each and every day.
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 […]
Oh Florence, it’s hot! Today has been marked as the hottest June day in the UK for decades and my goodness have we felt the heat this week in the lead up. It’s safe to say heatwave + newborn = grumpy EVERYONE, no sleep & […]
