Making a start with weaning

Violet is now on the cusp of 6 months so we’ve decided it’s time to start the weaning process onto solid foods and honestly I couldn’t be more excited! I’ve been really looking forward to this stage in her development as it’s been so fun to try new foods with her and watch her reactions. She seems so grown up sitting at her highchair and eating proper foods now – where did my newborn go? As I’m really enjoying this stage, I thought I’d write a little post about our preparation to wean and what we’ve been up to so…

Review: Lunch at Bill’s Brighton

Living in Brighton, I’m not sure I know of one person that doesn’t love Bill’s. Being a local brand it just feels part of our city and our Brightonian culture. There is something special about the atmosphere, there is always such a buzz, the food is delicious and it’s a friendly meeting point for many, at any time of the day.

Our Daily Routine – DITL of a Mum, Blogger, Dog Owner and Coffee Drinker

As a super nosey person, I LOVE ‘Day in the Life’ videos (or DITL for short!) – if you type that in on Youtube there are thousands, I could get lost watching them as no two days are the same for anyone! I was going to film one today but as I’ve been up since 4am with a teething baby, I decided to save you all from seeing my dark eye-circles and hearing my scratchy voice – so I’m doing what I know best and telling you about my day via written form instead. I hope this works as well…

Extravagant Baby Products Wishlist

I’m not really one for buying over-the-top extravagant items, especially for Violet as she is growing amazingly quickly and already is growing out of all of her clothes and toys! Some of her newborn clothes were worn once before they were too small – I wish we hadn’t bought her so much at the beginning but as a first baby you just get carried away buying things, it’s only natural! However, just for fun I thought I’d scour the market for the most extravagant, luxurious baby items out there and for this evening only I’ll just pretend I’ve won the…

On being Same-Sex Parents: Your questions answered

Today’s post is a little different – It’s Brighton Pride this weekend and whilst everyone is planning their vibrant outfits and stocking up on rainbow flags, feather boas, glitter and booze, I’m at home with a sleeping baby, reflecting on our first Pride weekend as a same-sex family and what that means to us. This is certainly different to my usual Pride plans, thats for sure! So, I thought this might be a good time to share a window into our lives and our dynamic as a same-sex family. I recently posted on Twitter inviting my followers to ask any questions…
