Surprise Baby Shower

Surprise Baby Shower

Yesterday we got a very nice surprise when we arrived at my Nan's house. We were meant to be going round for lunch with my sister, niece and mum but were greeted by my two aunts and my mum's cousin. Suddenly we were on the receiving end of an impromptu Baby Shower. The buffet was piled high with all our favourites which we just couldn't resist and my sister baked a chocolicious cake.¬†They had laid on a lovely spread including a crafty sign made specially for us. We were even more surprised when…continue reading →
The Journey has begun….

The Journey has begun….

My phone vibrated in my pocket. Clara had just popped to the toilet so I assumed it was a text from my mum wishing us a safe journey. Instead a message flicked up from Clara, a picture message. I really didn't think that an airports toilet was an appropriate place to be taking pictures but on opening the message I couldn't contain my grin. "well...?!" "well, I hope you washed your hands before taking the picture!" We grabbed each other in mini celebration as other travellers gave us inquisitive side glances. "got everything…continue reading →
It’s an Avent Event.

It’s an Avent Event.

We were recently incredibly lucky to be invited by Philips Avent to an event they were running to talk about a new product they are launching. This was our first event we had attended and to call us both shy would be an understatement. We arrived a little bit early as we are both a bit obsessed with getting to places on time. Though I'm sure that will go right out the window when our Lil Monkey makes its arrival. We noticed how at ease everyone else seemed as we were offered a…continue reading →
Family Bucket list

Family Bucket list

Some of our early followers may know that I (K) turned 30 in March and spent the last year of my 20's attempting to complete a Things before I'm 30 list. I didn't quite manage to finish everything on my list before the big 30 struck as our lil bump started to take all my attention. I haven't given up on it completely it's just other things became more important. Since getting our heads round impending parenthood, we've started to think about things we'd like to do as a family. It has become…continue reading →
Tweeting can be so rewarding.

Tweeting can be so rewarding.

The competition couldn't have been easier to enter. We see these kind of competitions run everyday on twitter, simply RT a tweet to enter.

So this prize was possibly one of the best prizes for our lil…continue reading →
To Blog or What to blog? That is the question

To Blog or What to blog? That is the question

Since starting this blog we have discovered that there are a lot more parent bloggers than we ever imagined. Each have their own reason for blogging and blogs seem to vary from short funny posts about baby's day to day activities to full on essays and rants or product reviews. We started this blog as a way for us to share our journey into parenthood, to help inspire or offer advice to people on a similar adventure to us. Like most bloggers we wanted the interaction, we both love being able to communicate…continue reading →
Clippasafe – BabySafe Bump Belt – REVIEW

Clippasafe – BabySafe Bump Belt – REVIEW

One of the main problems I have encountered since my bump has grown is that travelling in the car has been really uncomfortable. The reason for this was my seat belt. The seat belt sits right across my bump and I started to worry about the safety of my unborn baby in the event of bumps in the car. When we visited the Baby show back in February we visited the Clippasafe stand and noticed they had an offer on a product called BabySafe Bump Belt . At the time we had set…continue reading →

Makes me mad when it just says Dad

Makes me mad when it just says Dad

As week 22 draws near, my role has started to become more important. I'm there to help C out of chairs that once provided comfort, now seem to clutch at her as she tries to rise. I'm there to read bump stories and sing silly songs and feel the kicks that follow these moments. I'm there at the shops to hold the many new outfits C has to add to her wardrobe, since Button is adding a few inches each week it seems. I'm there to read C the next installments from the…continue reading →
