When I bought our previous car seat I’ll admit that I didn’t really know what I was doing. I didn’t really know what I should be looking for and I didn’t know what was good and what wasn’t. I ended up buying a car seat that wasn’t really that great for Erin. Every time she would fall asleep her head would fall forward and nothing I did would stop that from happening. That surely wasn’t very comfortable or safe for her. So, I had been looking at getting a new car seat for a while, especially as Erin is now
Sometimes Erin gets into a mood where she doesn’t really want to play with toys. She’s such a creative child and she would much prefer to do something arty or crafty so I have a cupboard stocked full of things for her to do. One of her favourites though is to play with dough. She asks for it over and over again but just playing with the dough on its own can get a bit boring. Recently we were sent the Nick Jr. Ready Steady Dough Super Duper Dough Set and Erin was super excited as soon as she saw it.
Last month we went on a family holiday to Haven. We chose to stay at the Caister-on-Sea park as it was easy enough for us to get to by bus. Being a family that doesn’t drive we tend to try to make things as easy as possible and the bus dropped us off pretty much right outside. Anyway, while we were on the bus a quite large group of older ladies got on part way as what I can only imagine was a regular shopping trip to a nearby town. Erin, being Erin, was her loud and cheeky self and
Being nearly 3, Erin is now at an age where she remembers certain events and she loves to look at pictures of them. I think she would happily let me sit and go through all of my folders of pictures on my Mac for hours, or even look at some of the printed photos we have. Erin also loves to have something for herself too though so when Photobox got in touch to tell me about their brand new ‘My First Photo Book’ I couldn’t wait to order one for Erin. Ordering Erin’s ‘My First Photo Book’ was really easy and
Last week Erin had her 2 year Health Visitor review. Now, I know they don’t really do them spot on 2 years old but they’re supposed to be carried out between 2 years and 2.5 years. Erin had hers at 29 months so the timing was pretty spot on. She was actually supposed to have it a month earlier but we had to reschedule due to the first appointment falling on one of her nursery days. Before Erin’s appointment I really didn’t know what to expect so hopefully this blog post will come in useful for someone. When we received
It has really taken Erin quite some time to be into soft toys. I tried to get her to like them as a baby and she wasn’t having any of it so everything we bought her ended up on shelves in her bedroom or in a box. Over the past couple of months though Erin has really started showing more of an interest in certain things and watching shows like Shimmer and Shine have helped to introduce her to things like unicorns, which she now loves. We recent received the GUND My Magical Light and Sound Animated Unicorn Soft Toy and I
Finding Erin smaller toys to play with is really easy. Smaller toys can hold her attention for roughly 30-45 minutes maximum but a lot of them won’t last more than a couple of months at best. Erin is now at an age where how she plays can change quite quickly but it’s important to also find toys that she can grow up with as well. Recently we have been playing with the WOW Toys Activity Table and here’s what we thought. The activity doesn’t come assembled but it does only come in 5 pieces and a bag of fixings. John
In a few days John, Erin and I will be heading off to Majorca on our first family holiday abroad. I have flown plenty of times before and so has John but this is something completely new for Erin and she has no idea what to expect. Although we are only going on a 2.5 hour flight Erin might get worried or scared as soon as she sees the plane. At the moment she’s quite excited but you can never really be sure how a toddler will react to something. I thought it would be a good idea to put
