AD | Contains gifted items and affiliate links (marked with *) Something that Erin loves to do more than anything is to paint but we don’t get to do it much at home. We had a brand new carpet put into our living room/ dining room at the beginning of the year so we mostly only do real painting in the garden now.

BABY born Comfort Seat Review

AD | Contains gifted items and affiliate links (marked with *) When it comes to toys it’s hard to know what to buy for Erin that will last. Growing up as quickly as she is it’s sometimes a struggle to find things that she will play with for more than a couple of weeks at a time. However, something that has been a firm favourite for some time now is dolls. We have been super lucky to work with BABY born a few times in the past on their soft touch baby, brother and sister dolls and some amazing accessories.
