Playtime in Wood Wharf

| July 13, 2013

This week my wonderful friend Sonja and her beautiful daughter Keira spent the day with us in Wood Wharf London. The weather was stunning and we came prepared with picnic rugs, toys, balls, bubbles and food.

Sonja and I have known one another since we were both in the late stages of pregnancy when we met through our local antenatal classes run by the NCT. We still have a very close friendship with the girls in our NCT group and regularly meet up with our husbands, toddlers and new babies in tow.

I love the special friendship that has blossomed since birth between Imogen and Keira. They’re such good friends and always so excited to see one another and play!

Keira and Imogen wait patiently for the bubbles to be blown.

The bubbles float up into the air and they’re off to catch them …!


A little rough and tumble is lots of fun on the grass.

Then it’s time to play grab and run with the Elmer ball.

Sonja and I enjoy catching up in the sun while the girls giggle and run around and play. After a morning full of outdoor activity we share a picnic and Imogen feeds Keira raisins.


Fifteen minutes later Imogen is fast asleep in her buggy on the walk home!

The Baby Style Guide to Wearing Sunglasses

| February 9, 2013

Baby sunglasses are just so darn cute and handy for keeping harmful UV rays away from baby’s eyes. I bought Imogen’s sunglasses from John Lewis for our holiday in New Zealand. They’re pink and green with little roses on the frame and have category 3 lenses.

Imogen’s been wearing her sunglasses a lot over the past few weeks and has created the Baby Style Guide to Wearing Sunglasses.

1. When you’re learning to wear sunglasses it doesn’t matter if you put them on upside down or askew. So long as you put them on all by yourself and smile.

2. Watch grown ups. Copy how they keep their sunglasses from slipping down their nose.

3. Point to whatever you like in amazement. No one can see where you’re really looking.

4. If in doubt, use all fingers to get your sunglasses in exactly the right place.
