Potty Training Tips & Essentials

I have to admit, I was terrified at the prospect of potty training and put it off for as long as possible. I was genuinely dreading it and although Sophie has been showing a few signs for months now, it was hard deciding when was the 'right time' to start potty training and how to even go about it. I literally had all the gear and no idea haha! Sophie has just turned three and is now dry during the day and has been confident using the potty or toilet for a few weeks now, so I thought I would share how we did it and some of our essentials with you.


Sophie's Third Birthday

We had a lovely weekend celebrating Sophie's birthday so I thought I would share how we spent the day along with some photos from her birthday and her party too.



I can't quite believe my beautiful little girl turns three years old today! The past three years seem to have flown by and my baby girl has grown right before my eyes. She really isn't a baby any more - in fact, the baby days are just a distant memory now. Although, I have loved watching her grow and develop her own little personality.


A Weekend Away In Northumberland

A few weeks ago, we had a little weekend away to Northumberland with my parents, so I thought I would share a few photos with you and what we got up to. Neither Toby or myself have been there before, so we didn't really know what to expect. However before our trip, a number of people had told us how lovely it was there.


Bringing Your Newborn Home

When preparing for a new baby, there are so many factors you need to consider, including bringing your newborn home from the hospital. A baby's first car journey home is probably the most important trip they will make and I know myself it's a pretty nerve-racking experience. This is why I have put together a couple of tips to help bring your precious bundle home safely.
