What We Have Enjoyed In February

I ended January with redundancy hanging over my head, which you may have read about in last months roundup post. February brought news that in my area it’s not happening and remaining unchanged, although work colleagues in the other immediate areas are still facing this. I truly feel gutted for them.

Although February is a short month, it’s been extremely busy for us. Near the start of the month, it was baby girl’s 3rd birthday. She wanted a tea party with sausage rolls, sandwiches cut into squares and triangles and cupcakes, she made herself.

We had her tea party on the weekend as the day of her birthday we went on a press trip to the National Marine Aquarium (NMA). It was a wet and windy day, especially choppy when we came home across the Torpoint Ferry!

The NMA was fantastic and we all thoroughly enjoyed it. It was the perfect family day out for a rainy day. There is much to do for little ones to keep them entertained and as an adult there is much to learn.

We got to be one of the first to try out the new Childs Farm products. I can still smell the scent of sweet fig, it’s a glorious smell! The new products are separate shampoo and conditioner in organic fig and a sensitive scalp conditioner, which I’ve been using on my 10-month-old to help with the removal of the last of her cradle cap. It’s unscented so perfect for sensitive skin. Her red hair is definitely softer from using the conditioner and by gently rubbing it into her scalp with a sponge its helped to nearly remove the last of her cradle cap. I love that they are all vegan products with no nasties in. As you can tell I’m a huge Childs Farm fan and have been since I first became a mum 3 years ago.

Last Sunday, we went along to the Cornwall Air Ambulance Blue Light Day. It was a chance to see all the blue light services up close and chat to all the service men and women who do such an amazing job. I was like a big kid myself and couldn’t wait to see the helicopters, fire engines, coast guard, police cars, ambulance and blood bikes up close. Baby girl is a huge Fireman Sam fan and loves fire engines, so I knew or thought I knew that she would be excited to get the chance to sit in a fire engine. I couldn’t be more wrong. The minute we got there when it opened, she wanted to go back to the car. She didn’t want to see any of it! I think now that it was too busy and she didn’t like the crowds. The sun was out and it was a fantastic day, but we cut our trip short because she was really unhappy.

When we got home Mr B got her bike out of the garage and put it together. We had saved it for her until she was big enough to ride it properly. She was in her element.

It was a big month for baby dottie, she turned 10 months and we got her measured for her first shoes. She also had her first go on the swings!
