On the first Sunday of August, we finally had Autumn christened! When I was pregnant, I thought I’d have her christening in the first 6 months. However, if you’ve been following our story, you’ll know that things didn’t quite go as we thought they would in the first few weeks of Autumn’s life. It took a long time for me to recover, so the stress of a social event was not something that was on the cards for quite some time.
However, in her 10th month, the time finally came. I had so much fun planning it all, although it was quite stressful! I planned it all in the space of about two weeks. I’m usually far more organised than that, but after a bereavement last month, the christening kind of sneaked up on us. View Post
While I try to give Autumn what we’re eating as much as possible and give her fresh healthy foods, I do often rely on jars and pouches. They’re so much more practical when you’re out and about or in a rush.
HiPP Organic have recently sent me some jars to try. I’m picky about what I give her, but I really like these as they have no added sugar. View Post
I’ve previously written about Medway Council’s closure of Sure Start Children’s Centres. The consultation period is over and there has now been a new proposal, as announced last week.
The new proposal means that 13 of the 19 children’s centres will remain open, but the services offered in some of them will be different. View Post
Okay, ‘fess up. Who else loves a good Aldi Baby and Toddler Event? I think I’ve only missed one since I found out I was pregnant with Autumn. I’d been planning to go, but I was kind of busy giving birth that morning!
The next one is tomorrow, Thursday 17th August 2017, so don’t miss out! There are lots of brilliant specialbuys for little ones, including some that I haven’t seen in my 18 months or so of attending them.
Now that Autumn has teeth, we’ve been brushing her teeth for a little while. MAM kindly sent us a Learn to Brush Set to help out! Autumn likes to try to do things independently, so it’s great that it has a smaller brush for her to try and use herself. They also sent us Heat Sensitive Spoons to try, which came with a cover.
