Winter walk in the Lost Gardens of Heligan

What started off as a little trip to a Christmas Market at the Lost Gardens of Heligan turned into a lovely walk around the gardens too. We met up with our northern friends (more like family) Kerry, Anita and Mick with their two little pooches Tia and Monkey.  After a browse around the stalls we…

First Swim

We finally did it. We took Alfie to a swimming pool for his first swim and he loved it.  He enjoyed bobbing around in his floating seat and with Mommy and Daddy. A nice quiet pool which was clean and warmish. The MASSIVE downside to where we went is you have to walk through the…

The arrival of Sebastian!

So, here he is. My man carrying our Christmas tree. Like all the movies involving lumber jacks he tossed that tree into the air and it landed on his shoulder like it was nothing … nothing but an awkward pile of prickles!!! Chris asked me to hold Sebastian for 30 seconds while he cleared the…

Children in Need

Alfie wasn’t at Nursery on the day of Children in Need but he still showed support wearing his onsie a day early.  ​​

Bonfire night

Fooood at the besties (hot dogs yum!) on a chilly evening before seeing the bright lights in the sky. Alfie clearly thought Travis needed a good old face grab and what better way to do it than with a rather sticky hand.  After lots of giggles, smiles and dadadas it was time to go. Now…

Halloween

Little snap of Alfie’s Halloween outfit for Nursery today!

Picking our Christmas tree!

Today we went to pick our first ever real Christmas tree! I’ve never had a real one before and haven’t really ever wanted one. I’ve always said no to Chris but as it’s Alf’s first Christmas it would be nice to have a new tradition. We ended up going to a local Christmas tree farm…

Alfie’s Christening

After what feels like an age it’s time for Alfred’s christening. After not wanting a theme, to having a theme then changing our minds again, we finally decided to give a nod to the ever classic Winnie the Pooh. As a child I was given a lovely classic Winnie the Pooh teddy bear and I…

Baby door bouncer

So even though Alf has his jumperoo (which he adores) we also got him a door bouncer so he can be on his toes where we can see him if we are in the lounge. From this we have discovered the ever entertaining art of baby river dancing. I could watch Alfie in his door…

Paper lover

Turns out Alfie has a love for paper. So much so he tries to eat it! When reading a story the first thing he wants to do is stick it in his mouth or scrunch it to his face. I like to think of this as his first steps towards loving books and reading like…

Finally I can reach!

After weeks and weeks of trying Alfie can finally reach his toes! (Excuse my talking I really didn’t realise how ooo arrr my accent can be sometimes!) ​​  ​

Apples and pears 

Alfie tried his first purée today (Apple and pear) and he wasn’t too sure at first but by the end he opened his mouth for more so we will try again tomorrow. His food list is growing! ​​
