Piglet is rocketing towards 15 months old. He is healthy, he is happy and he is learning every day. But he is not walking. He is like lightening when he crawls – that kid can move – but he has little to no interest in getting up on his feet to get around. As with

Some people love them, others hate them, but there’s no denying that baby and toddler groups can be a great way to make new friends. Be it an informal group for a cup of tea and a play, baby massage or a sensory class there is something to suit just about anyone. I have a

When Piglet was born the one thing I felt totally indifferent about was weaning. I was never particularly excited about getting him started on “real” food.

I’m totally late with this one, as Piglet was 10 months old on Boxing Day. Festivities got in the way of blogging though, and I was enjoying switching off a bit and enjoying the family time. So really, I’m not even sorry! Piglet’s 10th month was a big one for him. He developed in leaps

I love a good fireworks display. I really do. It’s great when someone has them at a wedding, or a nice big display on fireworks night. However, when it comes to fireworks at home I’m a complete fun sponge. In recent years I have found home fireworks increasingly irritating. I am sat here at 10pm,

I’m going to level with you. I have a HUGE changing bag for Piglet. Before he was born I always had a large handbag too – I’m just that way inclined! Thankfully, the Pacapod Mirano comes with multiple compartments for keeping all our bits and pieces in. The Changing Pod The changing pod does pretty much what

Up until now I’ve started each of these posts with the typical “where has the time gone…” etc. But actually this last month hasn’t flown by. We’ve had a lot on and been really busy, but we seem to have had time to enjoy it! At 8 months old Piglet has finally sat. It was
