Playdates, Baking & Dinosaur Prints | #LittleLoves

Friday, 29 July 2016

Happy Fri-yay! I am so glad it's the end of the week. Not because it's been long or bad, but because it marks the start of Jack's week off, and Parker's birthday week! We've been busy with trips to the park, meeting blogger friends and movie days this week. Here's my #littleloves;


I've actually managed to read lots of blogs this week, which I've really missed. I absolutely loved this post from Lucy at Mrs H's Favourite Things. There's nothing quite like seeing your children meet for the first time, and I can only imagine how special this was for Lucy and her husband!


I met up with the lovely Harriet who blogs at Life with Mrs Lee, and her daughter Bella on Wednesday for a soft play date! It was lovely to watch Bella and Indiana play together (they're only a few weeks apart in age), and Indie has been asking to go again ever since!

It was also amazing to watch Parker's confidence at soft play. He was climbing and getting to places I didn't think he could - and scaring the life out of me as he did so!


Parker is coming out with loads of new words recently, although the cutest is that he can say Indiana. Well, it's not quite Indiana, he calls her 'na na', but it is close enough!

Indiana is absolutely loving imaginary play recently too. She's really into the Lego mini figures at the moment, and plays with them constantly. Yesterday she had them in her Happyland house playing, and she was even doing little voices for each character - adorable!


These bad boys!

I got the recipe online, and Indie was a very good little helper. Of course the best bit was licking the bowl - the only reason I think Indie agreed to help.


I had a little spree in Next recently and got Parker some gorgeous bits. I adore these dinosaur dungarees, and they go so well with the print on our Cosatto

And Lastly...
I am SO excited for the coming week! We're off on a little trip on Sunday, and visiting Peppa Pig World on Monday as a little birthday treat for Parker. He turns one on Thursday and although we're prepared with presents and decorations, I definitely don't think I'm emotionally prepared! 

Have a lovely week!

Mummy & Me | July

Thursday, 28 July 2016

What a lovely month I've had with these two little monkeys! The older Parker gets the more affectionate and loving he becomes. He is such a mummy's boy, and will come over to me throughout the day to get his mummy cuddle fix, before walking off to play again.

He was pretty poorly with his teeth at the beginning of the month, and spent two days just snuggled up on me. As sad as it was I did love the cuddles, and it's such a lovely feeling knowing how much comfort he gets just from being close to me. He's also learnt to give kisses this month, so I get plenty of those daily too!

Indiana on the other hand is my little daddy's girl. We do have plenty of cuddles and giggles, and lots of fun, but she definitely prefers Jack to me. She does tell me I'm the best mummy ever though, and she tells me I'm beautiful, so I can't complain too much I suppose!

I took these pictures of the three of us on an impromptu trip to the park! I love how much my two love a selfie, which makes getting pictures of the three of us a little easier. How much is Parker starting to look like his daddy too?!
