Happy Father039;s day to the best Daddy and Husband we could wish for 🤍 Harper is your absolute mini me, and she adores you. Watching you together is the best thing in the world, even if i spend most of it with my heart in my mouth whilst you encourage her craziness 🤣. We love you lots 🤍🤍 How are you all spending Father039;s day?
2 weeks ago today we were in centre parcs ❤ Can you spot the deer? What do you all have planned for the weekend and fathers day?
We have been having lots of fun in the pool this weekend. Since going swimming last weekend at centreparcs, all harper wants to do is 039;swim039; Little dare devil spent her day splashing down the slide. We are also looking forward to spending the afternoon with friends today ❤ What are your Sunday plans?
I absolutely love having a candle burning! I find it relaxing, and the house always smells good 😍🕯 Since having Harper I have been really concious of burning candles, and even though it would be on an evening when she is in bed, I don039;t want to risk the 039;nastiest039; they give off. But, this is where soy candles come in 🙌 I have kindly been gifted these gorgeous 100% ECO- soy candles from @bykimmyb , and i absolutely LOVE them 😍. I have shea butter in the glass and then a small tin of wild damson, they have such a strong scent, and the whole house smells so good. Not only that they came in the most GORGEOUS packaging, and i almost didn039;t want to open them 🥰. 🕯 Scroll to see the packaging and scent discription. Take a look at her page for the full range there is so much choice.🕯🕯
We have had the best weekend on our first little family holiday ❤ We have been in @centerparcsuk longleat with our family, and had the best time. We hit around 20,000 steps each day so wasn039;t physically relaxing, but we feel refreshed, Harper had a ball and we cannot wait to go again. 🥰
How are we half way through the year already?! We go on our first little holiday on Friday and I cannot wait. What do you have planned in June?
That wave 🤣 The queen in her new home 🏡. We were lucky enough to be given this by someone we used to live near as their little girl had outgrown it. And Harper loves it! She has been in it everyday since. What garden toys do your little ones love?
It is very rare we get a photo together! A couple of weekends ago, we got our first night out since having Harper. Just due to lockdown etc, it just hadn039;t happened, but we had a nightout at @avonvalleypark for a friends birthday, and it was just what we needed. Fire pits, drinks, animals, bouncy castles, zip wires, pizza and friends ....we basically got to be the kids for the night, what more could you want!
You may have noticed that Harper and I are often in polka dots....so as soon as is saw this frpm @dot.dot.kids...bright polka dot it was a must! I knew Harper would love it. It was beautifully packaged too, and came within a couple of days. They have also been kind enough to offer 20% off with code 039;katiesfriends039; This isn039;t an ad...just a little business that I love 🤍💚
When you have children your whole home changes doesn039;t it?! Just before Christmas we changed the living room around and I still love it! We had a dresser, which no longer looked 039;dressed039; everything was moving to the top shelf and it all looked messy. Toys were everywhere, and I wanted something that was easy for Harper to get her toys out but was still 039;our space039; once she went to bed. So here it is, Ikea kallex, boxes and belly baskets, with added legs to make it look more like a unit. I am still so happy with it. How do you store all the toys?
#ThrowbackThursday Goodness me....that smile still melts me ❤❤
Reading gives us somewhere to go, when we have to stay where we are 📚❤ I have always absolutely loved reading, and It039;s something i started at weeks old with Harper. She loves to read, and has now found a love of listening to her favourite books too, thanks to @yotoplay She absolutely loves joining in with the bits she knows, and watching the pictures. We read alot of Julia Donaldson books, so these sets are perfect. You can control it from an app on your phone, and even have blank cards to save your favourite books/songs. A D | G I F T E D
It039;s not very often I put myself on the grid....and when I do, it039;s normally with Harper, so I thought It about time i start. After having Harper, and then going into lockdown and living in lounge wear I am really struggling to find my 039;style039;, what I feel comfortable in,and have no self confidence, even feel like I even know what to do with my hair most days 🤦♀️ A little cut and colour made a huge difference a couple of weeks ago, and I am hoping ill find some outfits I love again soon 🤣 Is anyone else feeling the same? I seem to have lost all motivation on how to put an outfit together!
A little throwback Thrusday.....why does it all go so quickly 😭. I love watching her grow, but I wish I could have those baby snuggles again. Anyone else feel like that? Mousey was already on the scene at a few weeks old 🤣
The best bank holiday weekend delivery 🍬🍬 A pick n mix, is mine and my Husbands weakness for a weekend treat. He loves anything sour....where as I would choose the jelly sweets and the little chocolates 🤤 We were kindly send this amazing 1kg picknmix by @youpickwemix, you get to choose a mix of TEN! It was soooo hard to choose 🤦♀️ but they are all amazing. These were perfect last night, tucking into these and watching, Line of duty together. What039;s your favourite pick n mix? Check my stories to see Harper devour a sour sweet 🤣 and swipe up to order yours with 20% off for new customers using code 039;SWEET20039;.
Day late as always 🤣 Can039;t believe we are in may already! Hopefully we see more restrictions lift this month, and we are one step closer to 039;normality039; What changes are you looking forward to? I am looking forward to having friends and family over....even if its raining 🤣 and softplay....I cannot wait for Harper to have softplay again.
We are so lucky to have a little community farm a 5 minute drive from our house, it039;s free, but we try to leave a donation each time. They current have lots of little piglets, and she asks to see the 039;animals039; every single day....although once there we spend most of our time between hand sanitising stations....she is absolutely obssessed 🤣....shouting 039;hands039; everytime she sees one...not sure any more proof of a lockdown baby is needed 😅
Harper is absolutely obssessed with bing at the moment, so we took bing and his friends to the 039;beach039; in the garden to get her outside She has always enjoyed messy play, but i have struggled with how to set it up, as we didn039;t really have space to store a big tray.....and that039;s where @craftypodsuk come in. We have kindly been gifted the amazing medium pod, and It so good, and takes up hardly any storage space. It comes in a really small, handy carry bag and easily just 039;pops039; up like a tent. For the extra messy play there is a removable silver liner, which made clean up even easier! Harper absolutely loved playing in this, keeping her occupied for over an hour...which is unheard of, there is also little storage pockets, which is an added bonus as 039;hiding039; things is her favourite thing to do (as you can see in the first picture 🤣) I have so many activites lined up now that we have somewhere to do them, without worrying about mess. Do your little ones enjoy messy play?
It039;s a scary thing trusting someone else, basically a stranger, with your baby all day isn039;t it?! Harper has been going to a childminder on a Wednesday for the last few weeks, and I am so pleased with how things are going. She has a little whinge when i first leave her but nothing to bad, I work less than 5 minutes away, and always have a happy picture by the time I get to my desk. After not being able to mix with people since being little I was worried, but she is so sociable, it is lovely to see. I absolutely love the child minder too, she is so good at keeping us in the loop, and getting reassuring messages minutes after leaving if Harper hasn039;t been herself when I leave, and I know Harper loves being around her. This is a picture we got sent from this week, and I think that smile says it all ❤❤ How did you feel about your little ones starting childcare?
