Family Favourites

I am always looking for new things to use on Amelia. Recently she’s developed some really dry patches on her back. I found this cream in the asda baby event for £1.25! Even after two applications there’s a noticeable difference. It smells divine and I’m tempted to buy the other products in the range.

Another favourite at the moment are the asda little angels peppa pig first pants. We’ve had a few ‘incidents’ – read Amelia weed on the carpet – because all her crawling, climbing and rolling was undoing her nappies. These are perfect as she can’t undo them and they have an adorable peppa pig design on them. At £3.87 for a pack of 30 they are a reasonable price and we’ve had no leaks, Day or night.

Organix apple and orange oat bars are now a regular on the shopping list too. Amelia makes a mess crumbling them up but as she scoops up the little bits and eats them it’s not so bad. (In the Aldi baby event they have boxes of 6 organix bars for £1.99)

I’m sure the shopping list gets longer as Amelia grows. She is 9 months in a couple of weeks and her first birthday is coming round so quickly. What did you do for your little ones first birthdays?

Mealtime Monsters

My last post was about two gifts that rob and I had purchased for Amelia. This post is about a few gifts I know my mum has purchased for Amelia. (Because I was with her at the time.)

Amelia is getting bigger now and eating anything she can get her hands on. She is still toothless so struggles with some bits but otherwise is a very happy little eater.

This wonderful monster bowl, plate and cutlery set makes meal times more fun for little ones. It’s from Aldi and I can’t wait to see her face when she opens it on Christmas Day.

The snack bowl is designed to help little ones with their coordination as it has a soft lid that they must put their fingers through to pick up the food. I’m looking forward to seeing Amelia’s little face. She loves bright colourful things and eating so combining the two will be a win all round.

Winter is Here

For me, it is now officially winter. Today, for the first time since before spring, when I walked indoors my glasses steamed up. It was so cold outside that when I came back home, my glasses were so fogged up that I couldn’t see. The irony is not lost on me.

I took Amelia on our usual walk, Something we now can’t do without gloves, scarves and Amelia’s gorgeous snow suit, a fluffy penguin one from next that her nanny on her dads side bought her.

Aldi have got their Christmas range in now and I could have brought everything. I settled for buying one of their gorgeous scented candles. There were several to chose from and I very nearly bought one of each but I restrained myself.

I can’t wait to buy our decorations and celebrate our first Christmas in our first home as a little family of three (5 if you count the uncle pigs).
