Ava - 11 Months Old



Ava is now 11 months old and I'm struggling to comprehend that in just a matter of days she will be one year old! It's crazy and makes me feel so emotional! I've already started prepping for all the things I want to do before her big day and for her birthday party too! Where has the time gone?

Let me tell you, those milestone card photo's have gotten more and more difficult to take as the months have gone by! Now she's either playing peekaboo behind it, throwing it to the other side of the room or she's gnawing on it. We recently got a carpet in our living room where we take the photo every month so I made sure to keep a patch of the old carpet so then the photo's will be exactly the same! It would have looked so strange if the last two milestone cards were taken on black carpet! Yes, I'm crazy!


Character
She has the most endearing little personality, she's so lovely. There's nothing she likes more than being with her family and smothering us with lots of kisses and cuddles (and the occasional cheeky smack to the chops!) She's affectionate, inquisitive, comical, excitable, independent and cheeky. She also feisty when she wants to be and will tell you off if she isn't happy! I love watching her character develop every month, she is a total mini me. God help us!


Size

I've not had her weighed this month but I'm guessing she is around the 22lb mark. She is quite tall and now that she's more mobile she is slimming down a little, which I'm sad about. I love her plump, there's nothing better than a chunky baby! She still has the sweetest little hamster cheeks though, I hope they stick around a while longer. She wears 9-12m in pretty much everything now and they all have plenty of space. We recently had her feet measured and she was a 3G.


Health

She's not been so well this month. She's had a cold which seems to have lasted forever. She's not unwell in herself but has a cough which is on and off and a constant runny nose. She's also cutting her 7th and 8th tooth which I think have been bothering her, the others didn't seem to do. They've given her a temperature and she's quite touchy and off her food a little.


Feeding

We still breastfeed and have no intention of stopping anytime soon. With her being unwell and teething she has been feeding more than usual but I'm glad I'm able to offer that comfort to her. She also drinks a cup of water a day, she's not just drinking milk. She loves to eat but with her being unwell I've noticed she hasn't had her usual appetite. Her favourite foods are; pasta, carrots, baby corn, sweet potato, scrambled eggs, ham, chicken, cheese, tomato, yogurts, raspberries, blueberries, grapes, banana, cereal. She enjoyed her first ever nutella pancake on pancake day, yum!


Sleep
Her sleep was terrible last month as she was going through sleep regression and a leap at the same time but this month it's picked back up again. She's still not sleeping through but she's started to settle easier at night and she is waking less. When she does wake she quickly goes back to sleep with a feed or with a cuddle. She's very hit and miss when it comes to sleeping in her cot, she of course prefers to be cuddled up to me. I don't mind this. We sleep safely and although I don't get much sleep when she's tucked up beside me, they aren't babies for long so I'm soaking it up. When it comes to naps she prefers to sleep in her pram in the kitchen. She'll nap in her pram for a good hour, sometimes two. If I put her in her cot upstairs she will only have 20/40 minutes. I think it's because our bedroom is at the front of the house so it's quite noisy around the time she naps.


Milestones and new tricks
* We have a walker! She's not 100% confident yet but she can walk from one piece of furniture to the next without holding onto anything. She can also take around 10 steps before dropping to her bottom. She's very steady when standing up and can balance for long periods of time. She never stops and she even tries to climb!
* She's not saying any new words this month but she can say; mama, dada, daddy, hiya, aww, cat, ta.
* She very independent and likes to try to do things herself, like putting on a hat or attempting to put socks on. She also tries to brush her hair and is getting quite good at feeding herself with a spoon.
* She copies everything that Noah does and follows him everywhere. Whenever he's playing with his toys she will sit or lay beside him (depending on if he's sitting or laying down) and joins in. It's so cute watching an 11 month old baby trying to play fight with superhero figures, she makes little sound effects!
* She has a snug seat from Mamas and Papas which is a lot like a bumbo. She can take off the tray and climb right out of it! She's a little Houdini.

* She nods her head for yes and shakes her head for no.
* Daddy has taught her how to head bang!


Likes and dislikes
Mummy mummy mummy! She would be clung to be 24/7 if she had the chance, I love it! She loves it when Daddy comes home from work and she see's him walk through the door. Playing with Noah and being smothered in big brother cuddles first thing in the morning. Kisses, cuddles, clapping, dancing and singing. She loves to read books, especially touchy feely ones. Mummy's make up bag and the hair brush. Being on the move. Rummaging through things she shouldn't be! Being mischievous! Playing with Noah's toys and the Baby Secrets dolls. CATS! Guitars and rock music. Wooden blocks and balls. Going for walks in the pram and swinging on the swings at the park. Looking for trees and birds. Walking! Putting toys onto tables. Exploring the house. Nursery rhymes on YouTube. Playing with the Xbox remote and headset. She doesn't like having her teeth brushed, sleeping alone or men with beards!

PJ Masks Turbo Blast Racers - Review



As parents we are obliged to endure countless hours of obnoxious cartoon characters, with their high pitched voices and annoying theme songs. Peppa Pig for example makes me want to rock back and forth in the corner of a dark room but PJ Masks is my saviour, a little bit of respite! It's one of the only kids shows that I can sit down and enjoy with Noah. He calls it Mummy's favourite! It's all about three regular kids who turn into superheros at night with the help of their animal amulets, all in in their PJ's of course! "Cause' night time, is the best time, to fight crime!" It's a corker of a show and if you haven't watched it before I highly recommend it. 


With being such big fans of the PJ Masks I had to accept the chance to review the latest toys to the range, the PJ Masks Turbo Blast Racers. We didn't know which sets we'd receive but was very happy to discover that we'd been sent Gekko and his Gekko-Mobile and Cat Boy and his Cat-Car. Noah was so impressed when he saw them but straight away he asked where Owlette was. I've promised to buy him the Owlette set if he continues to do well at nursery and listens to his Mummy! Later in the year more toys will be added to the range with new figures, dress up items and sets. The next one being the Romeo Lab playset which will be available in April.


The PJ Masks Turbo Racers are one of 2018’s latest additions to the ever expanding and ever so awesome PJ Masks toy range. They are the most epic PJ Masks Racing Vehicles, featuring a sleek design and deluxe accents. Each vehicle comes with one 3-inch PJ Masks Character Figure which fit nicely into the drivers seat. Each character is dressed in a fancy Turbo Blast outfit and safety comes first with the matching Turbo Blast racing helmet!

Noah's always been big on figures so he's been taking Cat Boy and Gekko everywhere with him, in his pocket to the park and even for a dip in the bath. They are a great size and fit nicely on the palm of your hand. You can make them sit up, stand and move their arms and head.



The Turbo Blast Racers are figures are lots of fun and both children spend so much time pushing them from across the room, crashing them into one another and making them do flips. It's great to watch Noah creating little role play scenario's whilst Ava watches intently and tries to copy what he's doing. I love watching them play together.

The PJ Masks Turbo Blast Racers are suitable for children from the age of 3. They retail at a reasonable £14.99 each and are available to buy online and in most toy stores.


- I was sent these products for the purpose of this review however all opinions are my own.

Which Gardens And Landscapes Can You Visit From The Big Screen?



We all know about famous buildings that you can visit across the country. For example, Mentmore Towers in Buckinghamshire which became the Dark Knight’s Wayne Manor in Batman and scenes from Durham Cathedral which became the classroom for Harry Potter and his friends. But what about famous gardens and landscapes that might be near you? If you’ve spotted a scene in a film that you’d like to visit, then read on we tell you where to find it.

The Dark Hedges
You’ve probably heard of the Dark Hedges, made famous by popular TV show, Game of Thrones. They are a row of beech trees that sit on Bregagh Road in Northern Ireland. They were first featured in episode one of the second series as King’s Road — the path that Arya took as she escaped from King’s Landing dressed as a boy, travelling through the Hedges to reach the Night’s Watch. Tourists can’t get enough of the spot after it shot to fame. To locals, this is a surprise as it is a rural road in Ballymoney, out of the way from the main villages. The avenue is quite difficult to find though and there is to be more signs built so that it is easier for tourists to visit the spot. Local legend says that the avenue is home to a grey lady who walks between the trees as it gets dark. The spot is in a perfect location if you’re already visiting attractions on the northern coast. This is where attractions lie such as the Carrick-a-Rede rope bridge and the Giant’s Causeway. They are part of the popular Game of Thrones tours that are in Northern Ireland. The trees have been voted one of the world’s most beautiful places by the Architectural Design magazine too. They were planted in the 18th century and intertwine to create a mystical avenue. If you’re one for bright hues and colours that stand out, this might not be for you. However, the earthy tones of the trees are certainly spectacular.


Stourhead Landscape Gardens
This destination became famous through the 2005 production of Pride and Prejudice. It’s situated in Wiltshire and is not something to be missed. It is the place where Mr Darcy first proposed to Lizzie, before she made her exit across the Palladian Bridge. Work on the garden begun in 1740 and wasn’t completed until 1780. It’s since been described as a ‘living work of art’ — if that doesn’t convince you to visit, we don’t know what will! In the centre of the park is a lake, which makes the garden more attractive. See a range of trees, from beech to Spanish chestnut, and explore the temples that sit close to the lake. Visit the garden in spring and you’ll also see rhododendrons in bloom, while in early summer you can enjoy the azaleas.

Alnwick Gardens
Alnwick Castle famously became Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry in 2000. It was in the grounds of this castle where Harry and his friends learnt to fly their broomsticks. Students of Hogwarts walked through the courtyards and baileys of Alnwick Castle too, as they went about their day-to-day lives. Features of the castle were even shown as a path to Hagrid’s cabin and the Forbidden Forest. It is the gardens that are attached to the castle that are a must see for garden lovers. The gardens are home to 200 different species of roses; see the Christmas Rose bloom in December and the English Shrub Rose open up in June. It’s wonderful all year round too, so you can enjoy brightly coloured water lilies in March and the delicate Peruvian Lily in June. There is also a large water feature that sits in the centre of the garden, which is something else to admire. Wander over to the Poison Garden where you can discover plants that have the ability to kill! Educate yourselves on a range of flora that can cause death through pleasure or pain and see how some of the most popular drugs are grown. Just be sure to follow the recommendations that you do not smell or touch the plants, as visitors have been known to faint due to inhaling toxic fumes.


The Eden Project
This attraction is situated in Cornwall, in the south of the UK. It’s considered to be the world’s biggest indoor rainforest and is made up of two huge biomes — a Rainforest Biome and a Mediterranean Biome. It is home to the longest zip wire in England too, which flies you over the biomes to give you a birds-eye view of the spectacles beneath. In 2002 though, the Eden Project became Gustav Graves’ Ice Palace and high security lair in the James Bond film, Die Another Day. The two biomes bring you an opportunity like no other — to see plants and wildlife that you wouldn’t usually see in the south of England. Experience tropical heat in the Rainforest Biome and discover over 1,000 varieties of plant — it’s even complete with a waterfall. Visit an authentic south-east Asian home too, as well as a vegetable garden to see how herbs, flowers and trees grow in the climate. Enjoy the warmer temperatures at this attraction too. Feel temperatures from between 9 and 25°C in the Mediterranean Biome. This climate is usually well-known for luscious fruits and tasty wines. Take a walk through the iconic grass trees, see huge aloe veras and walk past tulips in the springtime. There’s also a perfume garden, which is filled with scented plants such as jasmine, roses, lavender and thyme.

Aysgarth Falls
Journey down to Aysgarth falls in the Yorkshire Dales to see the scene where Robin Hood famously fought Little John in the film Robin Hood: Prince of Thieves. The falls are made up of three different waterfalls that are within walking distance. It was at the upper and middle fall that shot to fame in the Robin Hood: Prince of Thieves film. You can pay a small, voluntary fee to get close to where the scene was filmed. Walk further along the River Ure to explore around the falls. Discover the village or Carperby and Castle Bolton as well, while in the spring and summer, expect to see wild flowers through the valley. Visitors have said that the site is best explored after heavy rainfall, when the water is most powerful and the falls look especially spectacular. This piece was created by Suttons, retailers of vegetable seeds and other garden essentials.

We've had such a good week this week, I've loved every moment! Noah's been off nursery for half term and we packed so much into his time off. Sunday we took a family trip to Eureka, a science museum which is about an hour away from where we live. We used to go when we were kids, and we've been numerous times with Noah but it was Ava's first time! She enjoyed it so much despite only being 11 months old, it was so endearing to see. There's so much for them to explore and they both loved the mini Marks and Spencer's food court the most. There was also an artistic light installation which Ava was mesmerised by, we had to sit by it for a good twenty minutes! We are already planning to go back soon. The rest of the week followed suit, we were so busy! Despite the rain, sleet and snow we were outside every day on lots of walks and trips to the park. We then of course had Valentines Day and Pancake Day, both being Ava's firsts and I think she loved the commotion! She definitely enjoyed her first pancake day, hers was smothered in nutella and cream! The morning after I had some batter left and whipped up the kids some blueberry pancakes. Yum!

Ju-Ju-Be B.F.F Changing Bag - Review & Competition



I love changing bags. I'd go as far as saying that I love them even more than I love handbags, although these days the two are so very similar. There are changing bags on the market that are so stylish that they pass for an on trend handbag and the Ju-Ju-Be changing bags are just that.

A few weeks ago I was asked if I'd like to review one of their B.F.F changing bags and after having a quick glance on their website I almost bit their hand off. Their bags are exquisite and I knew I'd have trouble deciding on what design to go for.

After a few hours of deliberating (I'm being serious, it took me that long!) I decided to opt for the Admiral. This design has a rather fitting name with his nautical anchor design and navy blue material. The gold zips and tags make a gorgeous contrast and totally finish off the look. If anchors aren't for you then you'll be happy to know that the B.F.F is available in a wide range of different designs; polka dots, stripes, camouflage and roses to name a few. There's even a Hello Kitty print! 


As soon as I got my hands on this bag I could tell it was a quality changing bag. The material it's made from and the gold lining just screams luxury, it's certainly a bag to show off. 
It really is a show stopper. After falling in love with the bags appearance it was time to see if it was practical too. Sometimes when things are aesthetically pleasing they can be all show and no substance, so I was interested to see if it's functionality was as good as it's looks. It was time to find out!

Features
Includes memory foam changing pad.Two main zipper compartments.
Quick reach pocket for mobile phone.
Large inner pockets for nappies and wipes.
Inside the compartments are 4 gusseted pockets, 3 zip pockets, picture pocket, stretch key fob & lots of space.
2 Insulated Bottle Pockets. 
Detachable and adjustable messenger strap with removable memory foam shoulder pad.
Optional and additional shoulder straps.
Teflon® fabric protector to help prevent stains.
Agion® treatment protects the liner by inhibiting the growth of odour-causing bacteria, mould and mildew.
Light Coloured Lining so you can see what’s inside.
Machine washable but air dry.



The B.F.F isn't the biggest changing bag out there, it's just the right size for us. It has two different zip compartments (one for baby, one for mummy) as you can see by the two photo's above. The first being the main compartment which has plenty of space for nappies, wipes, a change of clothing, muslin cloths, snacks and a toy or two. Whatever you need for your little one. 
The second is a front zip pocket which is smaller and designed to keep your purse, keys, make up and other personal items. It has an extra internal zip pocket and even a little pocket for your phone. 

The bag can be worn as an over the shoulder bag but as it also comes with two extra detachable straps so it can also be worn as a backpack. This is a fantastic feature and one that you don't find very often, it's usually one style or the other. I prefer to carry it over my shoulder or across my body like a messenger bag but it's great to know that I can wear it on my back too.


The B.F.F from Ju-Ju-Be is one of their most popular changing bags and I can understand why. Not only is it a gorgeous changing bag but it's also fit for purpose, there's not a single thing that I'd change. I've been using the bag everyday for the past couple of weeks and I'm obsessed with it! I've even used it when nipping to the shops without the kids! The B.F.F. changing bag retails at 
184.95 and can be purchased directly from their website.

Organising A Memorable First Birthday Party



After carrying your precious baby for around nine months, it can bring pure joy to watch them grow over the years. One of the first milestones that might make you feel a sense of pride and accomplishment is when your baby first turns one. This could be because one represents twelve months of bonding, as well as learning how to talk, crawl, and walk. One may also represent a years’ worth of memories that you’ll never forget. Whatever the case, your baby turning one may be an occasion you want to mark as a mother. Here are four tips for organising a party that you’ll remember in years to come.

Pick a Venue
One of the first things that you’ll need to do when putting together a first birthday party is choosing a venue. This might mean renting out a hall, considering your local park, or organising something at a child-friendly restaurant. If you have the space to do so, you could also consider doing it in your house as that will cut costs significantly as well as potentially be more convenient. You should take into consideration, however the number of children that you will be inviting and if you’re okay with the possibility of food-stained walls and all other forms of mess that children create. Remember that your child probably won’t remember any of it so you don’t have to go over the top if you cannot afford to.

Send out Invites 
Once you’ve decided on a venue and a date, you may decide you want to send out invites next. These days, most things seem to be done digitally, so you could create a template and design the cards yourself or outsource it to a professional. When it comes to sending them out, you may choose to do so using a traditional method such as a post or you could decide to go digital and send them all via instant messaging, social media, or email.

Organise Gifts
Children’s parties usually feature the cutest and most heart-melting party bags. If you have a theme for your little one’s party, you can see if you can find bags that match the theme you choose. Typically, children’s goody bags consist of sweets, toys, and anything else you can think of. There are also usually separate ones for both the boys and the girls so that they get items that they’ll most likely be enthusiastic about. Consider going to your local pound shop to find the items you want to fill the bags with, you may also find some decent decorations there too while you’re at it. You can also buy the birthday girl or boys gift in advance so that you aren’t rushing to find one, you could make a birthday card yourself if you happen to be the creative type.

Decide on Food
The children will need food to keep their little engines going, so you should think about what they’ll eat asides from the cake at the party. Remember that children may have less of an appetite than you so may not necessarily need a three-course meal, consider foods that aren’t too messy and are easy to consume such as sandwiches, sausage rolls, and other pastries. Snacks may also be an essential as kids seem to like keeping busy with snacks.

Organising your child’s first birthday party can be an exciting task for you it can also be very stressful depending on the type of party you’re going for. There are a few aspects that are left out such as choosing entertainment and nominating other parents to help manage the kids, but the three mentioned above are the major ones to consider. Above all, try your best to have a good time, take lots of pictures and videos, and make it a day to remember.

Planning A Vacation To Mexico



We love to travel, just like most people do but it's something that we don't do as often now that we have children. We do go abroad once a year with the kids but it's usually to Spain or Majorca as admittedly, they are the easy option! While they are young this seems to be the most sensible thing for us to do as we get all the benefits of travelling abroad. The warm weather, the different culture and it's not too far to travel and it's not too expensive either.

That being said when Noah and Ava get a little older we plan to go further afield, and there's quiet a few countries which we want to visit. One place in particular has got to be Mexico, a country which is rich in culture and history. So many people have recommended the country to us, whether it be staying in rentals in Mexico or by venturing to the outskirts and experiencing the rural side to the country. I've also been told it's a fantastic place to take the kids but it's also perfect for a couples holiday or honeymoon too. It's so exciting to sit down and to start planning a vacation, especially when it's a country that you've never visited before.

With Mexico being our dream destination, and with serious plans of visiting in the next couple of years I decided to do a little research. I spoke to fellow bloggers who've visited the country and asked about their favourite places and to share any tips they have with me. Doing so has really given me insights and lots of inspiration when it comes to planning our holiday.


The Riviera Maya
The Riviera Maya consists of miles and miles of beautiful Carribean coastline, the north east part of the Yucatán Peninsula. It's an ideal place for tourists and those new to Mexico with it's all inclusive resorts, picture perfect beaches and popular town of Playa del Camren. You can also enjoy a bit of history by visiting the ancient Mayan port city. Everything I've read or heard about The Rivera Maya sounds incredible, it is probably the forerunner when it comes to planning our vacation.

Here's what friends had to say about the Riviera Maya:

We stayed in Riviera Maya, just outside Cancun and absolutely loved it! We swam with dolphins, visited Xel-Ha which is a huge outdoor eco-park (most amazing day ever) and we also did a bar crawl in Cancun, which was so fun, my other half enjoyed it a little too much! It was definitely a “pre-baby holiday”!!! We recommend Mexico to everyone & would love to go back as a family. - Rachel from From Rachel Claire.

We had our honeymoon in Playa del Carmen and it was the most amazing experience of our life. Our favourite past was going out to the cenotes. Such amazing natural beauty. We found it so hard to leave and always vowed we would return in a few years. - Bella from Documenting The Drews.

We went there on honeymoon and stayed on the Mayan Riviera. It was spectacular and the beaches were unreal. But the visit we made to Chichen Itza was out of this world. One of the most spectacular places I’ve been. No surprise that it’s a wonder of the world! - Stacey from One Small Human.


Chichen Itza
Chichen Itza are Mayan ruins located on the Yucatán Peninsula. Most notably known for El Castillo, the Temple of Kukulcan, a huge step pyramid. Rich in history and culture, the intricate stone carvings can still be seen after thousands of years. The Temple of the Warriors and the Wall of Skulls will give you the chills. It's such a large area that you can explore and enjoy for days on end. I can imagine visiting Chichen Itza once the kids have flown the nest, to be able to fully take in the experience.

I asked my fellow bloggers all about Chicken Itza:

I loved the Mayan ruins at Chichen Itza and the underground pools. Definitely plan in a visit to Coco Bongos and Fat Tuesdays for some fun nightlife. Rebecca from Munchies and Munchkins.

Chichen Itza has the most amazing Mayan temple complex. We spent hours wandering around and hardly saw anyone as it covers such a huge area. - Jenny from Monkey and Mouse.


Cancun
Cancun is probably the first place most tourists think of when they imagine Mexico. It's know for two things, it's wild night life and traditional downtown area. We aren't big on the party scene but if we were to visit El Centro and Zona Hotelera would certainly be places we'd visit.

Here are a few quotes from those who have visited Cancun:

When we went to Mexico for our Honeymoon we did the Tulum Xtreme tour which was amazing. You could zip line over the jungle and rappel into cenotes. Would highly recommend it! - Sarah from Just Buttons Blog.

We took a boat trip to La Isla Mujeres from Cancun and swam with sharks and stingrays and met sea turtles. It's such a fab island and nice to get away and chill for a bit. All of your food, drink and activities are included and you can pick as many or few activities as you like. - Samantha from North East Family Fun.


Ruth from 
Mummy and the Mexicans lives in Mexico and has given a couple of suggestions from a different perspective: 

Puerto Vallarta is lovely as a small beach town, although the waves can get a bit rough for small children I think. In land and away from the beach, San Miguel de Allende and Guanajuato are beautiful towns with colonial charm and quite a lot of cultural stuff going on. The pyramids of Teotihuacan near Mexico City are a really impressive sight and make a great day trip from the capital.

So there you have it, my short list of places that we'd love to visit in Mexico. The Riveria Maya is somewhere we have got to visit with the kids, maybe the quite side of Cancun too. Chichen Itza is on our bucket list for when we are older, maybe when the kids have flown the nest. Have you visited Mexico before or is it a place that you'd like to visit too?

This week 6 out of 7 photo's are of Ava, oops! They are beautiful shots of her though, she's so photogenic and I can't help but take hundreds of pictures of her. Noah was back at nursery this week, after having last week off so he wasn't around much in the day to take photo's with. We all felt a lot better this week after having really bad colds. It's been such a relief to feel normal again!

It's been a nice week on a whole. It was my Mother in Laws 60th on Sunday and we went out for a posh dinner, it was lovely! The kids love being surrounded by all their family, especially their 3 cousins. We then went out for a spontaneous family meal on Monday night which we all really enjoyed! Now that I'm on Slimming World we don't eat out as much as we used to do (as everything has to be made from scratch really) so it was nice to do so two days in a row. I think Noah enjoyed it too because on Tuesday he was asking to go out for something to eat again, ha ha. The rest of the week was a busy blur of nursery, enjoying th snow, family visits, shopping, walks, the usual really! I'm looking forward to half term next week, I really enjoy having Noah home with us.

What have you been up to this week?
