Tiny little baby, so precious and small,
Before I know it, across my floor you will crawl.
One finger, two fingers, three fingers, four, (more…)
On Saturday Kayla, Kenzie and I snook out for a couple of hours to go strawberry picking in Lamberts Fruit Farm just up in the Dublin mountains close to the DSPCA. I’ve always wanted to go strawberry picking or fruit picking in general but never knew such places existed in Dublin never mind Ireland until a friend told us about it whilst robbing snuggles from little K.
What a week it has been. Our beautiful little bundle arrived last Friday night, and she is perfect, all seven pounds two ounces of her. It’s like she’s always been here, and for everyone asking, yes, we made it to the hospital with plenty of time to spare. My poor mother was palpitating when I rang to tell her I was getting mild irregular contractions so much she left work in a panic and spent the next few hours hounding me to leave. (more…)

Everything to my complexion, the colouring of my eyes and I have bundles of energy. I’ve never in all four pregnancies felt so good especially not at 37 weeks pregnant. (more…)
So as you know Frankie is in disposable nappies, he never really liked the bulk of cloth nappies and he always leaked no matter what I tried. He was in size 5 for awhile, then he outgrew them or so I thought so I moved him onto size 5+. The next size up, obviously. (more…)
Having recently given the Slumbersac sleeping bag with feet a rather glowing review I have a Slumbersac to giveaway to one My Little Babog reader. (more…)
A couple of months back Slumbersac approached me and offered a Slumbersac sleeping bag of my choice for one of the babogs. And of course, being a huge fan of baby sleeping bags it was an offer I couldn’t refuse. I choose to review one of their new sleeping bags WITH FEET. Who knew such things even existed? (more…)
