Afterwards by Rosamund Lupton

One of my goals this year was to read more books.  And I’ve totally succeeded on that front!  When the baby naps I’ll occasionally curl up in my bed and just read until he wakes up.  It’s currently one of my favourite things to do. The book ‘Afterwards’ by Rosamund Lupton has been in my…

Top Tips for Single Mother’s

I have to hand it to you single Mum’s because it is hard hard work!  During this extended period where we’re waiting to move into our new flat myself and MrLondonMum have been split up (physically. Not split up in terms of our relationship!).  And as the non working parent obviously Baby London has come…

Baby London is 8 Months Old

Our little cherub is now 8 months old, and I’m really starting to think about his 1st Birthday already! How on earth did that happen? This month has seen many milestones being ticked off.  He can crawl with ease now and he can stand by pulling himself up onto anything he can reach.  He also…

Totseat Review

With pretty much all restaurants catering for baby’s with high chairs you may wonder where the Totseat comes in handy?  At the moment if I’m honest I leave Baby London in his pram if we’re out.  Feeding him with the pram upright and pushing him as close to the table as I can. The need…

Cheap Way to Entertain a Baby #MinuteMonday

Baby London loves a new toy to play with, but sometimes it’s just those simple household items that fascinate him.  He spent hours playing with this newspaper the other day taking each individual page off and discarding it much to the amusement of MrLondonMum, myself, my Dad and my half-Sister. Both sets of Grandparents now…

First Baby Teeth

We always thought Baby London’s first tooth would be his top left front tooth.  But that little nubbin of white that poked through the gum disappeared recently after being present for about a month, and instead he’s started getting his teeth through in the more conventional manner. This week his bottom right front tooth made…

Baby on the Move #MinuteMonday

Today’s #MinuteMonday is just a 60 second snapshot at Baby London exercising his new-found skill.  I have eyes at the back of my head now! There’s a little bit with his Grandpa in there too.  My Dad is 80 years old, so videos like this mean all the more.  Plus the song he sings is…

Weaning from Stage 1 to Stage 2

Baby London is now on what I consider the next level of weaning.  If you haven’t read how I started, then here’s the post I wrote. But as a quick recap- we didn’t go down the baby led weaning route, mainly because I’m a wimp and also I just don’t think Baby London would be…

What’s it like to be a Mum?

One thing people don’t tell you about babies is that they sort of hinder your daily life.  Sounds horrible to say, but it’s true! Don’t get me wrong you get used to it and as a Mother it’s something you deal with.. but for those without babies or embarking on a journey now of ‘about…
