Before we begin, I need to admit that I am not the art and craft sort. I’m terrible at it. So when I say that these are easy homemade Christmas decorations for toddlers I actually mean it. Perfect they are not, but I’m a firm believer in letting children lead activities so these are as Toby (with help as required) made them.
At 2 years old, Toby’s making the transition from highchair to dining chair and at 6 months old, Martha’s moving from arms to highchair. Martha isn’t too keen about her side of things but Toby has enjoyed using the Ickle Bubba Orb highchair for a variety of activities.
When Martha was born, we decided to buy a double pushchair because Toby still so frequently needed to rest his legs and Martha wasn’t getting on too well with babywearing. Our side-by-side double is great, but with Martha too big for the carrycot and seeming too small for the forward facing seat, we were left struggling a bit. Along came the BuggyBoard Maxi Plus with a solution!
Apart from my unhealthy love of coffee, the only thing I tend to really drink is water. I don’t have squash – we don’t even keep it on the house – and I’m happy with my plain water but sometimes it’s nice to jazz it up a little bit and Flo Drinks recently sent me some of their naturally flavoured waters to try.
I’m actually in shock that we’ve hit November 1st already. The beginning of each new month marks the turning of Martha’s age and at 6 months old she’s a complete and utter joy. Born 12 days late, our May Day baby was a happy little soul from the very start and half a year down the line that hasn’t changed. She’s ready with a smile for everyone, she wakes up chatting to herself and beams at me when I go to get her out of her bed. She’s finding her voice and boy can she make her feelings known if something isn’t right, but then I think that’s a good trait to have!
