Before Alfie was born, we knew that we would get him christened. I have grown up going to church and love the sense of family you get from being part of a community. We decided to get him christened at my family’s church – it was where Craig and I got married, where my grandparents … More Christening Celebrations
Last week I went swimming and I wore a bikini. As a new(ish) mum, this is a pretty big deal for me. I never thought I’d wear a bikini again after having Alfie, however after wearing a swimsuit on a hen do and feeling decidedly frumpy, I bought one to see how I looked. How did … More Loving MY Body Beautiful – Part 1
If you go down to the woods today You’re sure of a big surprise. If you go down to the woods today You’d better go in disguise. For every bear that ever there was Will gather there for certain, because Today’s the day the teddy bears have their picnic. Here at Something About Baby, we’ve … More If You Go Down To the Woods Today….
Today my baby is one. Today I have been a mum for 366 days. I honestly didn’t think I would be so emotional about Alfie’s first birthday, but the past year seems to have gone so quickly, I feel like I haven’t had time to get used to the fact my baby is growing … More First Birthday Milestones and Memories
A year ago today was my due date and I miss my bump. Although I love the baby that (eventually) came out of it, I miss having a big old belly growing my little boy.
Sunday was Craig’s first father’s day since Alfie was born. I think I was more excited about it then he was! We had such a lovely Mother’s Day, so I really wanted to return the favour and plan a lovely day for us all. We were woken at about 8ish by Alfie, and I brought him into our … More A Fabulous First Father’s Day
A few weeks ago we went on our first family holiday. Being on maternity leave and trying to save for a house, we couldn’t afford to go abroad this year (as much as I neeeeed a beach holiday, I’m sure it won’t be as relaxing as it used to be pre-baby anway!). So we … More Safari Adventures
A few weeks ago, I wrote a post about a sleep experiment I had conducted on Alfie (don’t worry, no babies were harmed in the process of this experiment!). I wanted to see if he had any kind of sleeping habits, as the nights soon all blur into one, and I couldn’t tell if he … More The Big Sleep Experiment – Part Two
Hi there! My name is Abi…you may remember me from the blog Something About Baby? I’ll forgive you if you have forgotten, I have been away for soooooo long! It feel like forever since I did a post (note, it’s been two weeks). We’ve just had a really busy time here in the Jones Household. … More Hello…Is it Me You’re Looking For?
As a new parent, there is one question you are guaranteed to be asked, whether your baby is 1 day old or 1 year old. “Is he a good sleeper?” It seems every Tom, Dick and Harry wants to know if your baby is sleeping “well”. Another personal favourite question of mine is “Is … More The Big Sleep Experiment – Part One
