We are really lucky to live really close to both sets of our parents, so Piglet has regular time with all his Grandparents. They help us out a lot in loads of different ways, babysitting, cooking us meals, helping out with the DIY. It’s easy to forget how much we use them, so I try

When I was pregnant I knew I wanted to prepare some meals for when Piglet was born. I was anticipating late nights, times when he wouldn’t want to be put down and it would be hard to cook. When I haven’t had much sleep I don’t always want a take away, I knew I would

6 months old – Piglet is definitely not a new born anymore! 6 months sounds really old to me, he’s not a “new baby” now.  He’s not hit any major milestones this month, he hasn’t rolled over at all in the last month and the idea of him being ready to sit up is laughable.

Read about the first 2 weeks here and here. This week was a bit better. I think classes are definitely the way forward for me though, I need to accountability of an instructor! Day 15: Carrying on after the busy weekend. I did not badly and felt pretty fresh afterwards. Day 16: Managed to squeeze in Shred
