Baby Diaries #8 – 7 Months Old

Gosh it’s been a while since the last update. Life is very busy and time passes you by in the blink of an eye. If I’m being honest I kept up better with the monthly updates with baby girl.

Anyway here we are at 7 months.  Baby Dottie has come on leaps and bounds these past few weeks. She is confident in sitting up, then moves onto all fours. Not quite crawling yet, but when she’s sitting on her bum she shuffles herself around the floor and goes around in circles!

The Original Brik Buster Review

During the rainy days we have been having great fun with this Brik Buster game. As it says on the box its huge amounts of fun for all ages from 3-93! They are totally correct as well. I’ve always loved to build, whether that be with baby blocks or bricks from other leading brands. This Brik Buster game doesn’t disappoint. The Original Brik Buster by Strictly Briks was designed by kids as a unique tower toppling game that’s fun for the whole family. Great for family game nights in.

PAIRFUM Reed Diffuser Review and Giveaway

At the moment with a 2 year old and a 6 month old I don’t get the chance to have many “me time” moments or that feel of luxury around the home. Yes the two year old climbs and destroys everything! But when I got the opportunity to try out one of PAIRFUM’s Reed Diffuser, I thought it would be my chance to bring a tiny bit of luxury to my home. Out of little hands reach of course!

PAIRFUM Reed Diffuser

With having young children around I need to make sure what is in the air is safe. That was the first thing I looked at on the PAIRUM Reed Diffuser. What I found out is that its natural. They use fragrances with pure essential oils. In my case pink grapefruit, as I love a citrus fragrance aroma in my house. The fragrance is an infused oil serum and it’s diffused into the air in your home by large black natural rattan reeds.

World Kindness Day 2018 with the Humble Brush

Today is World Kindness Day.

What is World Kindness Day? – It’s a day celebrated annually on 13th November. On this day, participants attempt to make the world a better place by celebrating and promoting good deeds and pledging acts of kindness, either as individuals or as organisations.

Will you be doing anything for World Kindness Day? I’ve sorted out some baby clothes and toys to take to our  local Children’s Hospice shop. We did this with our toddlers stuff around the age that little dottie is now – 6 months old.

I’ve been reading about the Humble Smile Foundation, a really great cause to tackle oral healthcare around the world, so thought it would be apt to mention on World Kindness Day.

World Kindness Day 2018 with the Humble Brush

The Humble Co. are doing a kind gesture, for every Humble Brush purchased, a proportion goes to funding the Humble Smile Foundation – a cause dedicated to delivering professional and sustainable healthcare projects to the areas where they are most needed around the world.

Build, Swap, and Battle with Ready 2 Robot

Collectibles are huge at the moment. The latest ones we have been sent to look at are Ready 2 Robot. With these you can build them from scratch, swap and then of course go into battle. But these fun robots are not ordinary. The pilot is suspended in a slime pod and you have to release him for battle.

How cool do these sound??

“The only collectible that lets you build, mix & match your own custom ‘bots, and battle your friends in a robot-brawl inside the Fightanium Arena. Unbox more bots, build your ultimate brawler and blast your way to becoming champion! Last bot standing gets the glory and the bragging rights!”
