Eight Months Old!

Annie is eight months - only one more month until she has been out as long as she was in my tummy! Insane! We are seeing more and more of her personality now and she is such a sociable little thing! (This post is slightly belated as she is actually closer to 9 months but hey ho!)

This month Annie:

  • Now has two teeth which is making eating much easier. Favourite foods are currently pasta bolognese and broccoli pasta with cheese.  She has an amber anket to help with teething which I think is helping. 
  • Is making lots of sounds ! Especially Daddy! (not sure if there is any association with the word yet though!)
  • Is shuffling and attempting to crawl.
  • Had a day out in London 
  • Bought mummy a lovely card and Chloe wallet for Mothers day! (With daddy's help of course!)


Happy Monday!

Tales from the Week on Thursday!

We had a lovely Easter - I hope you did too! We hired a cottage down on the South Coast and spent a few days by the sea. It was really relaxing - even with a eight month old in tow!

Here are a few pictures...

  • The beautiful beach at West Wittering
  • Annie enjoying the sand (and mostly trying to eat it!)
  • Annie's Easter haul!
  • We rented a house in this beautiful road. The blossom looked so pretty. 
  • My nephews and the hubs enjoyed the dodgems on the seafront!
  • I made these sweet bunnies for all of Annie's friends as an Easter gift.

Free Easter Printables!

What are you up to for Easter? We have rented a house by the seaside with some family and I cant wait! For me Easter is about relaxing, having a big Easter lunch, long walks and cosying up eating Easter eggs and this year it will include an Easter egg hunt for Miss Annie!

I have rounded up a few printables that I thought were lovely for you to use over the holiday.

Always stylish - these "Hoppy Easter" tags from Eat Drink Chic are so colourful and ideal for Easter gifts for your friends. Click over here to download them.
