Keeping Pets Safe around Bonfire Night | AD

As regular readers will know, we have two cats who we protect as best we can throughout the year – we don’t let them out at night – or even in the dark, they always sleep inside and if we haven’t seen them in a few hours we start to worry. We are especially cautious around bonfire night as there are so many hazards around – nice warm piles of…

Weaning has Begun!

Little Man is 6 months on 10th November and we had said that we’d wait until then to start Baby Led Weaning but over the last few days LM has been trying to take food from us and gnawing on everything. He was also very happy to sit in his Bumbo. Add to that the fact that he has been teething a lot of the last week and I thought…

Little Mr ‘Walker’

Our Little Man has been getting more and more frustrated over the last few weeks at not being able to do very much – he tries to roll but doesn’t get very far and the most mobile he has been is pivoting around in a circle on his playmat! We’ve tried to get LM used to using his Bumbo and his door bouncer and both keep him happy for a…

Splashing in Puddles

One of the best mornings that we’ve had with LP in a while was spent at The Lookout – set in the middle of a forest. The main part of The Lookout is a discovery centre focused on science and learning through play but we didn’t even get as far as going in there! We took LP, in her wellies, and Little Man in the pushchair and went for a…
