All Kody wants to do at the moment is get down and walk (holding my hands of course because he’s a big scaredy cat 😂) and I’m totally ok with that! Learning and exploring is such a natural thing for them to do at this age. They have this big wide world with things they’ve never seen and done and wow how exciting it must be! Kody spends so much time wanted to get down and walk whilst we’re out so I’ve invested in a pair of “cruiser” shoes from Clark’s meaning he can get down and have a wonder through the shopping centre with me... my back greatly regrets this decision 😂.
Little ones learning to walk is such an exciting time for us as parents as well as for them. Just look at the joy on his face as he runs around the house after his daddy! He will now walk between two people in short distances but isn’t confident enough to take any step with nobody there. Kody is so nearly one, when did your little ones begin walking?
Because nap times are for pjs and tea.... A lazy day for us today before heading off to work in a little while. Kody is nearly over his bug now and is a much happier little chap and as a bonus we’re maintaining our 2 hour long nap! Which is should probably be using to get some stuff done 😂🙈. How long does everyone else’s little ones nap for?
Sorry guys I’ve been super quite recently. Firstly happy new year as this is my first post of 2019! . The last few days have been really rough. Kid has had a really bad stomach bug at the same time as cutting his two top teeth. Needless to say his nappies have not been pleasant and Sleep right now is non existent. So try not to take much notice of the bags under my eyes and the scruffy unbrushed hair. Apparently this bug has been going around for a few weeks, so glad he didn’t have it over Christmas. Anyone else had this horrible tummy bug recently?
Light must be such a magical thing for young children, it must be so difficult to understand. As it bounced off Kodys baby grow I watched him as he went to grasp it in his fist, and as confusion and frustration showed in face when he couldn’t. Light travels so fast... much like the speed this year has traveled at. One second we was at the beginning and now we are at the end... my last post of 2018. I want to wish all my followers a happy New Years Eve and to thank anyone that has shown there support for me in this year. Having Kody was one of the best things I could’ve ever done and although many people have doubted me as a young mum I wouldn’t change it for the world! . . . I also have a new blog post about my Days in December if anyone fancies a read. Link in my bio 😘
Happy 11 months my little boy, only 31 days until your first birthday! It’s crazy how fast the time flies when we’re having fun. Matching up odd socks however is not fun! Kody seems to loose one of his socks nearly everyday... I really don’t know where they go to. Although taking this picture has made me notice a pair... anyone else spot the pair amongst the few I’ve take from his “odd sock bag”?
This is how I’m feeling after a busy Christmas Eve. All previous Christmases I’ve been super prepared months in advance... not this year, I’ve bought most of the presents the last few days, a few bits even today and had wrapped next to nothing. I really regretted not starting sooner after being swarmed by paper, presents and ribbon. I’ve finally finished and Kody is tucked up into bed. Are you one of the people that started super early and could put your feet up today or was you like me, scrambling around last minute like a headless chicken?
Was supposed to post this picture of Kody yesterday but completely forgot 😂🙈 Likely because I’m running around like a headless chicken. I’ve got a busy day ahead of me tomorrow preparing for Christmas, I still have a few bits to get as well as EVERYTHING to wrap.😩 What does everyone else have planned for tomorrow?
This little boy is my everything!! The reason I get up in the morning (and in the middle of the night 🙄) look at those bags under my eyes! I look like I’ve been dragged through a hedge backwards, but I suppose I can’t expect to look any better after over 10 months without a full nights sleep! We’re finally going to sleep in our own bed by himself, but he’s still waking up at least twice a night. When did your little ones start sleeping through?
Happy Friday everyone... I Finally got around to doing a little more Christmas shopping today, although we didn’t actually buy very much! I’m so behind!!! Please tell me I’m not the only one scrambling around trying to be ready in time?!?! The weather has been bitterly cold today, which for me just makes it feel that even more like Christmas. 11 sleeps until Santa! Also, anyone else’s little one pull their hats and blankets off??? I’m pretty sure he’s trying to freeze himself!
A super late post tonight, but today has just been so busy! I spent the day shopping at Primark, so keep an eye out for what I bought (will share to my blog a Primark haul in a few days.) We came out of the car park through the wrong exit and managed to get lost on a one way road 😂🙈🙄 For those of you that don’t know me very well I teach gymnastics to children and tonight was our Christmas display. I got home just in time for Kodys bedtime, fed him some milk and settled him for the night before sorting through everything I bought today. I’m only FINALLY managing to sit down with a hot chocolate and I’m a celebrity. Has anyone else had a super busy and stressful day?
10 whole months of loving you plus a day because yet again I’m a day late 😂🙈 Happy December everyone, who else is just about ready to burst with excitement for Christmas? I seriously couldn’t resist doing a Christmas theme for Kodys monthly picture! He got to open his first advent calendar door this morning (yes I know it seems like all my child eats is chocolate 😂) and we finally took the labels off our Christmas PJS which are super soft fleece (pic in stories). Today has just felt so festive, We also did a little shopping and I bought us some paint, card and pens so hopefully we can make some cute little DIY Christmas cards for family and friends next week. Any other good Christmas gift DIY ideas guys? Feeling artsy 😂
Went to Costa with a friend today who caught some beautiful pictures of me and Kody. I’m so proud to still be able to feed him at 10 months old and glad to have some cute pictures like this to look back on. Also yes I am feeding him chocolate brownie.... he wants anything I have and I feel too mean to not let him try some 😂🤷🏼♀️ @laurensimmonds1
We have definitely hit the 9/10 month sleep regression! Kody is waking up frequently throughout the night and staying awake for HOURS... he’s fighting going down every night and I’m completely exhausted. Please if anyone has any tips with surviving this regression I’m all ears... anything is worth a go at this point 😂 His normal bedtime is 7:30 and I finally got him to sleep at 9pm tonight after an hour and a half of screaming and fighting. I’ve tried moving his naps back but it just makes things worse 😩
My latest blog post all about our first family holiday is now up and the link is in my bio. How gorgeous are the views in this holiday picture... it’s my absolute favourite and I’ve been dying to post it! . . . Also the first glimpse of our practice Christmas photos are up on @jades_babyphotography if you want to have a look.
I’m currently in the process of writing my next blog about our holiday to Lanzarote back in September and looking at all these pictures are giving me some serious winter blues! I love the autumn and I am so excited for Christmas but there just something so nice about being able to go out and not worrying about wrapping Kody up warm and not having his little nose go all red and cold during our walks. Anyone else already excited for next summer? Maybe I just need a little winter sun... another holiday perhaps 😂🙈
