Violets Four Month Update

FOUR MONTHS! Can you believe it? I say this every time, but Violet is growing up so fast and I can’t believe it’s time to write another update on her progress. This month she has definitely changed from a baby into a little person. She wants to be grown up now, she wants to be independent and her personality is showing through more and more every day. She’s been smashing the milestones this month, she started to hold her head up with ease, she can now roll from her front to her back and she occasionally treats us to the…

Newborn Sleep Essentials & a giveaway!

Babies and Sleep – it’s a big subject isn’t it? Maybe one of the most talked about in the parenting realm or at least level with the whole breast vs. bottle debate I’m sure.

We’re moving, we’re grooving!

It’s official, we have a roller! Violet can now roll from her tummy to her front and she can kind of shuffle about on her back. I seem to put her on the playmat in one place, turn my back and she’s across it on the other side, I’m not exactly sure how but I know she is starting to move a LOT and the days of being able to take my eyes off her for two minutes to nip to the loo are now over! So, as I’m trying to be super organised I thought I’d start to think…
