We’ve got a game around here. It’s called ‘Where’s Baby Bow’. Baby Bow is a soft teddy which when the string is pulled plays Its a Small World After All. We started playing the game a little bit back one day, when I pulled Baby Bow’s string and hid Baby Bow under a cushion and then … Read more

There is nothing like being out at a nice cafe on a sunny day with plans to head over to the playground when your toddler who was sitting in his highchair randomly throws up all his fluffy and chips that’s he’s just ingested. With no real warning. We decided to take him home, luckily we … Read more

This has been sitting in my drafts for quite a while now. It was originally a link up on a blog, though I can’t remember what one now, but I was going through drafts at the wee hours of the morning the other night and was in the mood for sharing. A quick snapshot of … Read more

We had our final long weekend of the first half of the year. Not that it makes much difference to Matthew, all days still blend into one. Rob worked all weekend so Matthew and I just hung out at home, winter is finally here so it’s getting harder to get out during the days as … Read more

I’ve failed. I actually failed back in April. I didn’t really want to admit it as I was proud I’d made it that far, but then Matthew got sick over Easter and life got in the way. I don’t remember the last image I took for the 366 project, but you know what, I’m ok … Read more

Tooth number 8 has poked it’s way through. Matthew now has 4 teeth on the bottom and 4 teeth on the top. And for the time being, teething has calmed down so maybe we will get a couple of weeks before it starts up again. So far it hasn’t been a terrible experience, but I … Read more

Matthew – 1 Year 20 Weeks Old

It’s been a bit of a wet week, which has made for a bit more inside time than Jock or Matthew really like. They had both been going a bit stir crazy, especially Jock who doesn’t get to come out to Matthews activities, so when we had a bit of a break in the rain … Read more

We are starting to get to a point where Matthew is getting a bit over the highchair. He is able to climb into it but hates being strapped in. Sometimes being strapped in just makes for a harder fight then it needs to be. But if he doesn’t get clipped into his chair, he just … Read more
