The best autumn/winter baby girls’ clothes 2017

The best autumn/winter baby girls’ clothes 2017

It’s been a while since I last wrote about what clothes are in the shops for babies. 5 months, in fact, eek! However, there are so many beautiful baby clothes coming into the shops for autumn and winter that I had to rectify this shortcoming! Baby style is something that I seem to be paying increasing amounts of attention to. Those who follow me on Twitter will know that while I’ve always liked Frugi, I have become a little obsessive recently! Oops – sorry hubby!

If I had unlimited amounts of money, I think I would just go nuts and spend hundreds of pounds on Autumn’s clothing. The sad truth is that I can’t, as I’m struggling having not had a proper income for the last few months! However, that’s the price I’ve paid for spending as much time at home with my baby as possible before I return to work. However, there are ways of getting around it. View Post

BlogOn Xmas Jumper Linky – meet Autumn’s Mummy!

BlogOn Xmas Jumper Linky – meet Autumn’s Mummy!

Hooray, I’m going to my first blogger’s event later this month! September’s BlogOn is Christmas themed and I can’t wait to rock my Christmas jumper, learn lots and meet other bloggers. If you’ve heard of BlogOn, you’ve more than likely heard of the goodies too and the fact that you NEED TO TAKE A SUITCASE. I have been assured that this isn’t a hoax, so I’d be lying if I said I wouldn’t be excited about ALL THE STUFF! I’ll also be officially ‘up north’ for the first time in my life, finally ticking off one of the things on my 30 before 30 list.

The questions have just been released for the BlogOn Xmas Jumper Linky. I’m taking part as a little ‘getting to know me’ post before I meet some of my lovely fellow bloggers later this month! Please wave hello in the comments, (and in Manchester), and direct me to your posts! View Post

A letter to my daughter at 11 months

A letter to my daughter at 11 months

Dear Autumn,

How are we only a month away from your first birthday? It makes me sad to think that you’re already so close to being a toddler rather than a baby. You’ll always be my baby though, no matter how big you get! As sad as it is when you stop doing funny little things, there’s always a new thing to follow. It’s just part of a natural, healthy progression.

We’ve had lots of fun this month, this is what you’ve been up to… View Post

Autumn’s Christening and how I planned it

Autumn’s Christening and how I planned it

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
