Trendy Toddler Tuesday

He's back modelling yet another band tee this week. 

 This photo was from the weekend at the small playarea where my parents live, i love how they have this area for the little ones, they can all play out safely without the need for constant supervision, it reminds me of my childhood where i could play outside on our road without being watched. The kids use the area for allsorts, football, waterfights, camping out etc.

He was wearing his red converse but as it had rained i didn't want them getting soaked so we popped his jellies on, i like how toddlers can get away with wearing any combo.

Comparing bumps, what a difference!

 When i was pregnant with Seb i took bump photos religiously and i love to look back on them. I am taking photos this time but not as regularly and comparing the photos shows me how much bigger i am this time around. 

This was me yesterday at 26 weeks and 2 days with my huge bump
 And this is me when i was pregnant with Seb at 27 weeks, i look so tiny!! Admittedly when i got pregnant with Seb i was a dress size smaller but i didn't think there would be such a huge difference!
 This was me at 39 weeks with Seb, i really hope that i don't go any bigger then this as i may actually burst! Seb was 8lb 4 so not huge but he was very long(2foot) and i'm only 5ft so he could only really grow outwards i guess and i think he did alot of damage to my stomach muscles as my stomach never went back properly. 
Did you bumps grow with each pregnancy?

Review: Happyland Race Track Sports Day Set

Well the whole country is now going sports mad due to a certain event going on in London(are we allowed to mention it or not?!!) so i decided it was time to get out the Happyland Race Track Sports Day set that i ordered months ago knowing it was going to be a sporty summer.

 I set it up on the table ready for when he woke from his nap.
I showed Seb how the people go around the track and how to make them jump over the hurdles etc and though he did copy me,  he is a little young to appreciate this toy properly and i think it would be better suited to a slightly older child though it is stated as being suitable for a of child 18 months plus.
The track is actually made up of large puzzle pieces which Seb enjoys taking apart rather then using as a track and the hurdles etc quicky end up on the floor. I think the track would have been better as one piece that folds like the board you get in a game in order to stop it being taken apart. 
He does however love the people that came in this, and had spent ages playing with those(including drowning them in my glass of water). So i think for his age group buying the set of Sport Athletes would be better option. 

Much as i'm a fan of Happylan toys this one wasn't for us at the moment so the track has gone away although the people are still out to pay with.

99 days to go

Today marks 99 days until baby number 2 is due, eeeek.
At the moment i am feeling the best i have done all pregnancy, i'm still being sick but i've kind of learnt to cope with it and the tiredness has eased for now which makes everything better. I feel like i haven't grown too much in the last few weeks and am now at the right size for the stage i'm at so i don't feel so huge and out of kilter. My skin seems to have calmed down a bit which is a bonus. Heartburn and hormones suck but i guess thats pregnancy for you!
I'm using this time to make sure i do lots of lovely things with Seb before the tiredness comes back and the wedding creeps nearer.
This baby is so active, due to an anterior placenta with Seb, movements were felt quite late on and were very muffled and Phil didn't really get to feel them at all. This time however theres no missing them, you can see his hands and feet poking out and see where he is moving around, its funny and freaky at the same time. He has a set pattern for when he is active, luckily he isn't going crazy during the night(yet).

We've started getting organised, we have our nappy stash sorted as well as some disposables for when he is first born.  The cot we want should be coming back into stock next week so we can go get that.  Last weekend we got all of Sebs old clothes back as they had been stored at our parents, we went through it all and realised we don't need to buy very much at all, though obviously i will buy new bits, its nice to know i don't have too as all the things we kept are in fab condition.  I need to get a steriliser and some bottles incase breastfeeding doesn't work out and then i have the newborn essentials covered. Anything else is really an extra as when they are so small they just need some food, somewhere to sleep and something to wear.

Trendy toddler Tuesday

Today has been so hot that Seb has been in just a vest and nappy for most of the day which isn't very trendy toddler so i'm using his outfit from yesterday.

We had a busy day, walking to the park in the morning without the pushchair and having a walk around the pond feeding the ducks, this exhausted Seb and when we came home he was lying on the kitchen floor. Then when he woke up from his nap and Phil came home we headed over to his parents house as they got a new puppy yesterday. As Sebs been around dogs since he was born he is really good with them and left the pup alone as she was mostly sleeping so he pottered around the garden and sat on the grass reading books.
Minne soon livened up though and bounded straight over to Seb to give him kisses and steal his books. Please excuse my bump in the background!
They had a good play and by the time we left to come home Minnie was following him around the garden.

Review: Ellas Kitchen Wakey Wakey Round Ones

I'm always on the lookout for new things to give Seb for breakfast. 
Breakfast cereals are so full of added sugar that i avoid them and so the only cereal he tends to have is weetabix which seems to be one of the better ones according to research. So we tend to stick to toast, fruit, yoghurt etc.

Anyway i saw on facebook that Ellas Kitchen were releasing some new breakfast products for toddlers and the Wakey Wakey Round Ones caught my eye. They look like other cereals available but they have no refined sugars in them. I really liked the look of them so kept looking for them when i was shopping and loacated some in Sainsburys. The pack cost arount £1.70 and contains 7 servings.

Firstly and most importantly, Seb likes these, he has even been known to put down his fruit in favour of them. He has them with milk for breakfast or on their own as a snack.

From my perspective, these are a quick no fuss breakfast that takes 2 seconds. I like the bright packaging its really appealing and i love how it seals with the screw top, no soft cereal here. Its not the cheapest option for breakfast but if you're like me and like to give your little one something different each day then the pack will easily last a month.

Have you tried any of the new Ellas Kitchen products yet?
What does your little one have for breakfast?

The simple things

This morning i decided that instead of hiding from the incessant rain, we would embrace it instead.
This decision was probably helped by us having received Sebs first ever pair of wellies this week. I had been searching high and low for some really nice quality wellies that were available in a small size as Seb has pretty tiny feet especially considering he is tall! 

A friend recommended these wellies from Jojo Maman Bebe and they are exactly what i was looking for. Good quality, not plastic looking and no characters on them as i'm not a fan of characters on clothing. At £14 they are on the expensive side for toddler wellies i guess but then again they are lovely. So i ordered them along with some welly socks.
We embraced the weather this morning by going out for a walk after breakfast. Seb is still relatively new to going out without a pushchair and he loves the freedom. We walked up to the park, i taught him to splash in puddles, Seb sat in some puddles and knocked on peoples doors as we walked past(theres some houses directly onto the footpath) and sang 'Its raining, its pouring' while we walked. He loved touching the wet walls and watching the water pour down drains.

When we got home i had a very rosy cheeked happy little boy :) and a very wet mummy. 
 Its easy to forget that the simple things are so entertaining for our little ones.

Activity: Water beads

A while ago i bought some water beads to use in our water table, they've been unused until now as these beads are not a toy and i didn't want to risk Seb putting them into his mouth at all. 
As he is good now with knowing what to try and what not to try i decided it would be safe to use them.

These beads are fab and magical, they arrive as tiny little beads and when you put them into water they grow(leave for 24 hours so they reach full size). For an older child this would be a fun part of the play, seeing them grow but obviously Seb is a little young to be bothered about that aspect! They end up about the size of marbles, with a jelly like feel to them.
We were lucky yesterday not to get the rain that had been forcast so we got out the water table filled it and added the beads along with some containers for collecting the beads and pouring. 

As soon as Seb saw these in the water he started saying 'whasssattt, oooh whasssaat' he enjoyed the feel of the beads, he spent a long time moving them from one side of the table to the other, collecting them in the containers and pouring them out again. He showed real concentration when collecting them all up.

We played with these for around an hour in all which is a great length of time for his age. I think the sensory aspect combined with the collecting and pouring had hime hooked. 

These beads are available in pretty much any colour you like. I got 2 5g bags from ebay for just 99p and only used 1 bag in this activity. The are also available from other places like Amazon.
Again please don't do this activity if your little one still puts things in their mouth at all as these could easily be a choking hazard and are not intended as a toy.

Trendy Toddler Tuesday

Its that time of the week again!

 On Sunday we actually had....SUN! 
Phil was working so me and Seb went to my parents and spent some time in their garden chasing the dogs. Seb had a great time climbing into the bushes, playing football and pulling the heads of my mums flowers.

Review: Lillipops

Many of you will know that i have struggled with awful sickness during this pregnancy, it started at week 15 and is still here. I've tried allsorts to ease it and to work out if certain things trigger it to no avail.

I was recommended to try Lillipops by several people who had found them really helpful. So i ordered myself a box and thought i would do a little review for you.

What are they?
Well Lillipops are naturally flavoured ice pops, specially formulated for pregnant women to help ease nausea, heartburn and that dry mouth feeling you sometimes get in pregnancy, they work by rehydrating you. 
The ice pops contain no artificial colours, flavours or sugars and come in 5 flavours; Lemon and Mint, Grapefruit and Tangerine, Lime and Vanilla, Camomile and Orange and Ginger. These flavours were chosen as they are beneficial to pregnant women. My favourite is definately the Grapefruit and Tangerine.

How much are they?
At the moment you can buy a multipack of 20 Lillipops for £6.99 with free postage to the UK mainland from the Lillipops website, the usual price is £9.99. The pack contains 4 pops of each flavour.

Did they work?
These pops have done a great job in keeping me hydrated which i had been finding difficult, my sickness is still here but to be honest i think its here to stay no matter what i do so i wasn't expecting it to miraculously dissapear!
These have been BRILLIANT  for my heartburn, they really help to sooth it and its far nicer to have an ice pop then it is to take Rennies or Gaviscon, i would happily buy more for this reason alone.
I also think they would be fab if you are pregnanct during a hot summer as they taste nice and a good way of keeping your fluids up while helping to keep you cool at the same time. 

**I ordered and paid for these products myself and this review is all my own opinions**

Maternity fashion: Outfit post

 As i've been busy buying new clothes over the last couple of weeks i thought i should do a proper outfit post featuring some of it. 

I went shopping on Friday and here is what i was wearing.
 Black dress-Topshop Maternity, Black over bump leggings-New Look Maternity, Orange cardi-Primark
Huge 24 week bump
 Bird belt-H&M
 I chucked a huge H&M leopard scarf over the top and leopard print pumps from Oasis too.

I really like this dress, for only £20 its nice material and has lots of bump room. The leggings are not the thickest ot there but i can't stand wearing my normal non maternity ones as they sit on my bump and i hate under bump ones too so these are ok for the few weeks i'll need them and as they were only cheap i won't be bothered if i get holes in them from crawling round with Seb. 

Hope everyone has had a fab weekend :)

I've been tagged by The Mini Mes and Me in the hilarious Why MeMe. 

This MeMe is about sharing all of the questions you would love to ask your child/ren. Its so funny as i am always wondering whats going on in that crazy toddler head of Sebs.

WHY do you insist on putting your hand in your dirty nappy? And roll away, army stylee when i am only trying to clean you?

WHY do you turn the tv on and off, on and off, on and off?

WHY do you throw your toys down the stairs? 

WHY do you pretend not to like a certain food when i know for a fact that you do?

WHY do you refuse to go to sleep when you are clearly tired? 

WHY do you prefer an empty bottle/box to all of your lovely toys?

These are just a few of my why's!

Italian Chicken and Rice

Anything with an Italian twist goes down well in our house so when I found a recipe for Italian Chicken with rice on the BBC Good food site a few years ago I know it would become a family favourite.  I have cooked this dish so many times now. It is easy to make and everyone enjoys this simple dinner.

I stick pretty close to the original recipe as is really doesn't need much changing! I add extra garlic and change the stock depend on what I have to hand. I am definitely going to try this in the slow cooker soon and maybe with beef instead of the chicken.

Italian chicken with rice recipe

Italian chicken with rice recipe

2 tbsp olive oil
2 chicken breast, diced
1 large onion, 
2 peppers (I like red and orange) chopped
2 garlic cloves, crushed
100g long grain rice
1 carton of passata
300ml chicken or vegetable stock
green pesto (ready made or home made)

Pre heat the oven to 200C.  Pop the oil into a large pan and cook the chicken until golden brown, then remove the chicken from the pan and keep to one side. In the same pan fry off the onion and peppers for a couple of minutes until softened and add the crushed garlic, fry for another minute or so.

Add the rice, passata and chicken stock to the pan with the onions and peppers and bring to the boil, turn down to a simmer and add the chicken to the mixture, stir so the ingredients are combined. Simmer for 5 minutes or so before adding to anot ovenproof dish. Pop into the oven for 30 minutes until the rice is cooked through. 
Serve with pesto to stir through.

Win £500 of Mothercare vouchers and a mobile with Colief

Colief are currently running a fab competition on their facebook page where you could win a massive £500 of Mothercare vouchers and whats more if you enter through this blog you have the chance to win the  lovely ceiling mobile pictured below for your little one. Read on to find out more.

Colief Infant Drops is calling on mums and dads across the UK and Ireland to stand up and celebrate the love, design talent and sheer hard work they’ve put into creating their little one’s room at home. Is your nursery every young girl’s dream or every baby boy’s paradise? Have you enjoyed letting your imagination run wild? Most importantly, do you think your baby’s nursery could inspire other idea-hungry mums and dads?

Colief’s ‘Comfy Cribs’ competition launches online on its new Facebook page (www.facebook.com/ColiefUKIE) on 6th June 2012, inviting parents to share inspiring photos of their little one’s nursery. To enter, simply like the page and follow the instructions to upload your picture, along with a short comment (50-100 words) on the inspiration, or key features, behind your look.

 Colief, used by parents for reducing hours of crying caused by colic, have launched the search for the most ‘Comfy Cribs’ to not only showcase everybody’s design talent but importantly, to celebrate how loving families everywhere put their child’s comfort first when they create a special place of their own within the home.

 For your chance to win one of three £500 Mothercare vouchers and have your design promoted as the best in the land across the media, simply visit the new Colief Facebook page and follow the instructions to upload your image from 6th June.

Celia Sawyer of Channel 4’s Four Rooms is a mother of two and interior designer to the stars: “A baby’s nursery is often seen as a sanctuary by parents, so a lot of time and energy is put in to making it the perfect place for their little one. Trends today are leaning towards continuity with the rest of the home, so if you like contemporary there is no reason why your little ones nursery can’t be contemporary. People tend to opt for less typical ‘baby colours’ and are being more adventurous, so trends are going against decorating their nursery with the theming of well known characters, with parents adding their own personal touch instead.”

 The judges are looking for entries in 3 categories:

·         Best Boy’s Crib 2012

·         Best Girl’s Crib 2012

·         Most Creative Crib 2012

 The closing date for entries is Monday 6th August, when a shortlist of finalists in each category will then be selected by the Colief judging panel. Pictures of the finalists’ nurseries will then be shared on the Colief Facebook page for the public to choose the overall winners by voting through ‘liking’ their favourite entry. The winners of each category will be announced on 17th September 2012.

 The prize for each category is £500 Mothercare vouchers, inclusion in a regional and national media campaign and an invitation to join Colief’s influential Mum’s Panel, sharing advice with other mums.

 Sharon Skelton from Colief said, “Excessive crying is one of the main symptoms of colic, which can make it a difficult condition for families to manage. Although colic usually passes by the time baby is six months old, whilst the baby is in distress it is really important, for both the parents and the child’s wellbeing, to try and find as many ways as possible to offer comfort. We hope the ‘Comfy Cribs’ competition will inspire parents with new ways to comfort their baby on any budget.”

 Priced at £11.99, Colief is available from pharmacies nationwide. For help and advice, call the Colief Infant Drops Helpline on (0800) 0281187 or visit www.colief.com. For more information and support from Cry Sis – visit http://www.cry-sis.org.uk/ or call the Cry Sis helpline on 08451 228 669

The competition is open to UK and Ireland residents only. Full competition terms & conditions are available on www.colief.co.uk/comfy-cribs
Two lucky people who enter this competition through my blog can also win a gorgeous ceiling mobile worth £14.99 for your little ones room. To enter to win one of these you just need to pop the code TGSQ at the top of your comment when you enter the compeititon. Remember to put the code in so that we can see who has entered through this blog.

Good luck my lovelies!

Activity: Cloud Dough

I've seen cloud dough pop up on quite a few blogs recently and thought we would give it a go too. I don't think i've ever made it before so i wasn't entirely sure what to expect. 
We did it inside as the weather has been so dire, i put down an old magazine to minimise the mess. I was originally going to use his sand/water table but it has unused sand in and i didn't want to get rid of that so i decided an old plastic storage box would do. I also decided to use some real kitchen equipment(a colander, wooden spoons, palate knife, silicone moulds) as i like to use 'real' things as much as possible when we do sensory things.

Its pretty easy to make this stuff. 8 cups of flour and then 1 of baby oil and mix. I also added a tube of gold glitter, though you can't see it in the photos the mix was quite sparkly. 
We stripped Seb down to his nappy and popped him in the tub, this was fun as he got to feel it between his toes and on his tummy as well as on his hands which he loved as he enjoys getting really messy and really interacting. He spent alot of time stirring the dough which is essentially silky smooth flour that can be moulded. He had a little taste and soon spat it back out in disgust. He also loved it when we put the mixture in the colander and made it snow.
 This was a nice way to spend an hour or so and afterwards me and him were both covered in flour and glitter so shared a lovely bath(until he pooed in it!)
Its a fun sensory activity, i've read that this is hard to colour but the best way to do it if you want to, is with powder paints so thats a good tip if you fancy making it.

Have you tried cloud dough before?

Rainy day painting

With the weather being quite frankly appaling we are doing alot of indoor things at the moment to keep us busy.
Following on from potato printing, we tried a pepper. I had one in the fridge that wasn't needed so thought we'd have fun with it. 

Once we'd got bored of the pepper, we moved onto a little bit of finger painting, resulting in lots of mess, including a stained highchair tray(ooopps).
What have you been doing to keep your little ones busy on the rainy days?

ELCS or VBAC part 2

Well i had my appointment yesterday, and i have to say i was left pretty underwhelmed by it. 

I got there 10 minutes before my appointment and the waiting room was packed so i knew i'd be in for a long wait. I was called by a nurse who took my blood pressure and tested my urine sample in the corridor in front of the whole waiting room(anyone else find that a bit odd?) then told to go and sit down in the waiting area again. 
Forty five minutes later i was called again, this time by a midwife who took me to a room to measure the baby and listen to its heartbeat, i always love that part its so reassuring to hear them although he kept moving away, i'm measuring 2 weeks ahead, which is similar to Seb i measured ahead with him the whole way though. 
Then finally i got to see the consultant, she obviously hadn't look at my details before i saw her as she had no idea why i was there. She speed read through a checklist with me that they have to read to everyone who has previously had a c-section and ticked them all off without even looking at me and then asked if i had any questions. I asked how likely i was to end up with an EMCS if i went for a VBAC, she said there would be about a 30% chance, that with a VBAC as soon as i think i'm in labour i have to go to the hospital and be on a bed with constant monitoring, this really puts me off a VBAC as i had a long labour with Seb and i don't want to be stuck on a bed, last time while labouring at home i felt the need to be in the bath and also move around which obviously won't be possible with VBAC.
I then asked if i did have an EMCS would i be likely to need to go under general anaesthetic again, she wasn't even aware that i had this last time and asked me why i had it and why i ended up with a c-section, i really think she should have looked at my notes beforehand to be honest as part of the reason for the appointment was to discuss Sebs birth. I said that he was an undiagnosed breech and i didn't know much about the rest as it was a bit of a blur, so finally she looked through my notes. Apparently Seb was in alot of distress hence knocking me out as they were having trouble with the spinal.
 And that was it really, she has booked for me to go back in October to decide what i want, she is going to try and get me to chat with an anaesthetist so we can discuss if i am likely to be knocked out again as she couldn't answer me and i said that is something i want to avoid. I'm pleased about this as it would sway my decision. 

So to sum it up i am still unsure although i am swaying towards an ELCS at the moment mainly because of how i would have to labour. This would mean baby would be born at 39 weeks bringing it forward to October!
One thing i am sure of is that i made the right choice about not having this baby at the same hospital as Seb was born(and where the appointment was). Even the taxi drive that i had on the way to the hospital was telling me how his wife was badly cared for when she had her baby there,

Elective ceasarean or vaginal birth

 Tomorrow i have the appointment i've been waiting for since i found out i was expecting baby number 2.

Some of you will have read Sebastian's birth story(if not its here) , because it ended with a c-section i have to see a consultant this time around.
When i saw my midwife for the first time she asked about Sebs birth and i couldn't give her alot of details, i have no idea how much i dilated, no idea why i had to have general anaesthetic and she was pretty surprised and said i was lucky as these sort of births can lead to PND. She also advised me that when i got to see the consultant to go through everything that happened with them as they should have all of the information. I'm really looking forward to this and hoping it will give me some closure as i still have issues with my experience both at the birth and my aftercare hence my choice to go to a hospital further away this time.

We will also be discussing if i will be having an elective c section or if i will try for a vaginal birth with this baby. After my initial enthusiasn to have a vbac this time around, as my pregnancy goes on i find myself torn on the subject.
I have quite a few questions to ask, i want to know how likely it is that i would end up with an emergency c-section and if i do will i end up with another general anaesthetic as i want to avoid that at all costs. Am i more likely to have another breech baby? Will i be scanned to check? 
Obviously if i went for an elective c section, i would have to stay in hospital for at least 2 days and it will be harder recovering after with a toddler and a newborn to look after but on the flipside, my delivery will be much calmer, i'll be able to hold my baby right away and get breastfeeding started and Phil will be there and i won't have the worry of things ending up how they did last time which is already playing on my mind. 

I am looking forward to the appointment but i am also feeling nervous, i hope i get some answers regarding Sebs birth and i'm hoping to feel more reassured about whats to come too. I'm not sure if i will be able to decide what i want tomorrow but i would like to feel more informed.

Maternity Fashion: Marks and Spencer

I'll let you into a secret, i love M&S, yes its not the most fashion forward shop but their basics are great and good quality, i love their underwear, they sell pretty(and comfy) shoes and of course the food hall is fab.

 Sadly they don't have a huge maternity range, but i do love these two dresses.
The black dress is only £25 and actually looks like a good length for those of us not blessed in the height department. The floral dress also comes in plain black or navy patterned and looks comfy and stylish.

I noticed that they also have these fab pj bottoms, they come in navy and black and can be worn over and under the bump and cost from £12.50, as someone in desperate need for pj's these are calling my name. I also think they'd be great for a hospital bag, for the afterbirth bump.
They also sell nighties that would be suitable for giving birth/post birth especialyl the button down one which allows quick and easy access for skin to skin contact.

While you're on the site remember to check out their maternity and nursing bras and babywear.

Activity: Potato printing

This week we gave potato printing a go for the first time. As Seb is so young i kept it very simple with one potato simply chopped in half and 2 paint colours. Cheapy plastic plates or paper plates are great for doing this as rather then have loads of washing up after, you can just chuck them.
 Seb absolutely loved doing this, the potato was the right size for him to hold and control which for littlies can be difficult with a paintbrush. As you can see from the photos he had a good feel of the potato and a little munch too. He found it pretty funny.
  We ended up with some lovely pictures which can be duly gifted to the grandparents.
I used to love doing this with older children with a big variety of fruit and veg, its fun getting them to engage with cooking ingredients and introducing them to foods they(sadly) may not be otherwise familar with.
If you have a spare potato lurking in the kitchen, what are you waiting for?!!
