We have now been Baby Led Weaning for 3 months. Little Pickle has still only fed herself, we have never spoon fed her. BLW is definitely a way of life for us now and I am so glad that we first started weaning this way.

Letter to my 16-Year-Old Self

Letter to my 16-Year-Old Self

The last couple of weeks, and my last couple of blog posts have cemented the fact that I am really proud of where I have got to in life. The last 9 months since LP arrived have been my happiest and I have been thinking often ‘If I knew then what I know now…’

Why?

Mummy and LP

I’ve been tagged by Rachel @Rachey320 in a meme all about why. The meme was started by mummycentral

‘Why…?’ is something that I will hear frequently from LP as she gets older. It is something that every parent hears numerous times a day from their children as their inquisitive minds develop.

Motherhood

Motherhood

Having LP has made me think about what type of parent I would like to be. With this in mind I have thought a lot about my childhood, my parents and my experiences. I think that with your own upbringing when looking at yourself as a parent, you have to repeat the things you liked and do things differently that you didn’t like or agree with.

Sleeping through…

Baby LP Photoshoot

As you all probably know, LP has never been the greatest where sleep is concerned. For the first few months she slept during the day for an hour or two at a time, waking for feeds and a little play time but at night she would be awake from about 8pm until anywhere between 3am and 6am!

Parenthood and Shiftwork

Daddy and LP - 1 Day Old

As you may or may not know, Dave works shifts. He works 6 days and then has 4 off. The 6 days he works are between 8 and 12 hours, and generally he leaves home an hour and a half before he starts work and gets home an hour and a half after he finishes work. He always starts with two days where he leaves before we wake in the morning and finishes on two night shifts.

It’s Only Just Begun…

My Blogging Kit

We have officially started our search for a childminder.

As I said in a previous post, we only need childcare for the times that Dave and I are both working. This means that as Dave works shifts, the days and times of the childcare will be different every week. This makes finding a childminder incredibly difficult as most would like to have the same days/hours each week.

Perspective

I thought I’d blog about my weekend.

Yesterday, Saturday, a good friend of mine, M, came round with her daughter Z. We’ve known each other a few years and got married within 6 months of each other and had our Daughters 3 months apart. We now live about 35 miles away from each other so can’t see each other as much as we would like but make sure we spend a whole day together at least once a month.
