Daisy is 14 months old – another month has gone by!

My baby girl is already 14 months old! It feels like she is such a grown up already now. Life is whizzing by and I’m sure that each month goes faster and faster really. Daisy has been poorly this past month still, quite a lot, but that is just how it goes when you are small. A baby takes a long time to build up a strong immune system and illnesses along the way are to be expected.

How do you turn #TearsIntoSmiles ?

Taking my daughter to the park, and to play outside, is something that I really enjoy. As we live in a flat we don’t have a garden at present. However, I don’t let this stop us! We have a lovely water fountain, and pretty grounds, in the estate that we live in. Also, just a few minutes from our house we have Harlow Town Park. This covers more than 164 acres and has parks, lakes, paddling pools and more. Today I want to share how I turn #TearsIntoSmiles as part of an Elastoplast campaign that I have been invited to take part in.

Daisy is 13 months old

My little girl is already 13 months old. Every single month I just cannot believe that another month has passed us by. It feels like a lifetime since I last wrote one of these posts but really it is just one month. Mad! This last month has been filled with ups and downs for us, but we are here and that is the main thing! Daisy is 13 months old – where has the time gone?

Look at my little messy girl! We’ve had lots of days where we have been sitting at home together, in our PJs, feeling sorry for ourselves.

DIY cake smash – Daisy is one and had a freefrom Birthday cake!

Recently our beautiful daughter Daisy turned one! I can’t believe that a whole year has passed since the day she was born. Life just passes by in the blink of an eye. We wanted to end the first year with a DIY cake smash so that Daisy could have some fun. I wanted to do a DIY cake smash because I’m too tight to spend £500+ for a stranger to take some photographs of my daughter. Today I want to share some photographs with you and also talk about the items we used for our DIY cake smash. Hope you enjoy this post!

A look at the cake from our DIY cake smash

We received this beautiful cake from the good people at Just Love Food Company. They provided this freefrom cake for Daisy and it was absolutely delicious. We had a little taste with Daisy. It was so chocolatey and you would never know that it was a freefrom birthday cake.

My first year as a parent – how it really went!

My daughter is one year old. I cannot believe that a year has gone by since the day of her birth! Thinking back to her birth doesn’t fill me with great memories, besides having my wonderful daughter of course. Anyway, the last year has been full of ups and downs. Life is like that isn’t it! Gives with one hand and takes away with another. This is my experience of my first year as a parent.
