Christmas Gift Guide | Toddlers

At two and a half years old, this is the first Christmas that Darcie really understands what is going on. Last year she was excited by presents and seeing all the lights and glitter but this year she is seeing it all in a new light and magic for the first time. And she thinks that it is wonderful! In some ways the pressure is on to make sure that she loves her Christmas presents, but at the same time I’m not allowing that to become stressful. She is still young enough that she is quite easy to buy for and not old enough to have a Christmas list as long as her lean toddler legs! I’m sure next year will be a different story. In case anyone is struggling for ideas, I’ve put together this list of some things that I know Darcie will love and hopefully you can get some inspiration too! (more…)

Christmas Gift Guide | Babies

November is upon us, and we all know what that means – Christmas is coming! I’m someone who gets a bit too excited about Christmas a  bit too early so I try to contain myself as much as I can. But once November arrives I feel free to shout about it from the rooftops. Now is the perfect time to be getting organised with Christmas shopping so I’m officially declaring this Little Snippets’ Gift Guide Week and I’ll be sharing my top picks for Christmas over the next few days. Hopefully you can find some new ideas and discover new brands and products through my gift guides. I’m starting off with the littlest people we have to buy for – and let’s be honest the ones, who would happily just sit and chew on wrapping paper without caring at all what is inside – the babies!

Ernie At Two Months Old

I’m late, oh I’m so late with this! Only his second ever update and I’m so late with it that I was torn whether or not just to leave it and wait for the three month update. But I would love to have a full set for the first year of his life, so here we are. He is now closer three months but I will write what I can remember from a couple of weeks ago with some mention of how he is doing now too! (more…)

Ernie’s Labour & Delivery Story

Please excuse the quality of some of the photos in this post, we filmed bits of my labour and so some pictures are screenshots of that footage. The lighting was kept dim too which reduced the quality some more.

Let me set the scene.

It’s the third of July 2018, we’re in the middle of one of the most severe heatwaves the UK has seen in years and I am nine days overdue. I’m hot, swollen and becoming increasingly annoyed by the poor time keeping skills of my second child. It had never occurred to me that Ernie would be later than Darcie was, if anything I was expecting him early and had therefore been on the edge of my seat since about 37 weeks pregnant. Five weeks later and I was beginning to lose my cool, literally. (more…)

Darcie’s Second Birthday Party

Today marks one month since Darcie’s second birthday, which means that it also marks one month of me not managing to get this post written. I’m going to go ahead and blame pregnancy for my major procrastination there! (The particularly savvy among you will now realise that actually it is one month and four days now, since she turned two – I think that says it all!) Darcie’s birthday conveniently fell on a Saturday so it was easy enough for us to decide to hold her party on the same day. For her first birthday we just invited family but this year it was really nice to have some of her little friends come along too. (more…)
