First tooth!!!!!

Have you heard all the horror stories out there about when your baby gets their first tooth? Our little girl has got her first tooth this morning and apart from a little bit of grissling last night you wouldnt know there was anything wrong?
I found a great way to entertain her earlier, i had brought a box of nappies earlier in the week and she woke from her nap and I thought 'hmm I wonder baby in the box?'  I sat her in it and she loved it and thought that it was great fun - guess I am going to have to build one of those box forts when she is older!! lol

Who needs a lawn mower

Who needs a lawn mower when you have a baby in bouncer!  I am going to have to move the position of the bouncer when we are outside as the lawn is getting bald spots where a little monkey is reaching down and pulling out the grass!

How Many Bibs

How many bibs will you need?  I would go with at least 5 a day to start with and you want enough to last you for at least 3 - 4 days, you will be amazed at how many bibs a baby will go through to start with and then they slow down abit until they learn the art of dribbling.  If you have a tumble drier avoid the bibs with the 'plastic' backing as this will melt and the bib will be ruined after one or two goes in the drier.

Designer or Own Brand?

What a decision lol, you find out that you are going to be parents and you start thinking what do I get? When it comes to clothing some people like to go out and but loads of designer clothes but when you think about it whats the point?  A lot of the designer labels out there have sizes like up to 1 month and so with all the other clothes you buy chances are they might wear it once or not at all.  Our little one seems much happier in non designer clothes as they seem softer and more stretchy (technical term there lol) and all round more comfortable for her - she is certainly happier in them than other clothes she has. 
You dont need to spend a fortune to get plenty of clothes and if people ask you if you would like baby clothes when your little one comes along remember to let people know not to just get 0-3 months as otherwise you will have loads to start with and then suddenly run out as it surprising just how quick they grow.

Who would have thought grass could be so much fun?

Our 6 month old is now 7 months old and she had her first experience of grass (I mean the lawn kind!!!!) she was sat in her bouncer in the back garden and she put her hand out and touched the grass and had a look of 'hmm whats this?' she then tried the other side of her bouncer and then it turned into pulling at the grass and thats when the laughing started.  She managed not to eat any grass though as I cleared her hands before they reached her mouth much to her disappointment.

Who would have thought clapping hands could be so much fun?

The latest thing to make our little one smile is clapping hands - she is now joining in although she doesnt always quite get her hands to clap! It is funny though when she gets really excited and falls over backwards (dont worry there are cushions behind her!) she does a great impression of a bird flapping its wings too!

First time on the swings

As today was a nice day we decided that it would be a good time for our 6 month old to try out the swings - needless to say she loved it and it was funny watching her giggling and holding on, when she first started there was a look of 'what the hell is this?' She wasnt so keen on the see-saw though - that came with a look of what are you doing to me, there are other babies looking!

Dont give your baby the Sky remote

If you give your baby the sky remote prepare to have some strange channels come onto your telly!  We had some text channel appear last night much to the amusement of our little one.  Then the remote turned into a chew toy! When we changed it we ended up on a music channel and that was it there was laughing and clapping and giggling and one very wide awake baby! Sky remote

Best things in life are free

Always remember that you dont have to spend a fortune to get the best out of life and this includes your little ones, my youngest daughter is the happiest baby I know and she loves nothing more than smiling and laughing at anything and strangely enough nothing lol.  Has your baby ever just stared into space and started chuckling and you cant see what they are laughing at??????????

My 6 month old is a fan of Eastenders!

My 6 month old will stop what ever she is doing once she hears the theme tune to Eastenders, she will even interrupt her bottle!  She is still smiling and laughing now and she tries to help daddy write the blogs but I dont think people will understand ccxvsasvdvdv lol

Even being ill doesnt get her down

Even when she is ill my youngest still laughs and smiles, in between coughing lol.  She loves her I love my duck book which regularly gets covered in dribble (good job it water proof) and dances away to even my singing!!!!!

Theme tunes and adverts

My daughter absolutly loves the adverts, everytime they come on she laughs and smiles which is not bad for a 6 month old.  She also loves the Eastenders theme tune which is handy as its normally on at feeding time so it amuses her if her bottle isnt quite ready.

Welcome to my blog.  I have created this to share my experiences of what makes my baby smile and laugh which will hopefully be followed by others who can add their experiences and give new parents ideas to help them remain sane and calm.
