    • I took him to the park the other day with some friends who both have babies under one, while they sat and had a nice catch up I was running around like a headless chicken from swing to slide, think I was ready for a nap by the time we came home x

  1. I’m on baby no. 2 and am really enjoying all your ‘baby’ list things! With my first child, I found age 2 quite difficult in some ways (tantrums, frustrations etc) but I loved hearing his speech develop, and seeing him discover the world. There are great things about each stage. #MarvMondays

    • Yep we’re in those stages right now, discovering his own mind and pushing boundaries, unfortunately nobody told me it all starts well before two! x

    • Ahhh that smell, there’s none left on baby K. On Thursday’s and Friday’s I get nursery smell, which is really weird because I didn’t expect nursery to have a ‘smell’ but apparently it does lol! x

  2. I think when I look back when they were a baby it was sooo easy! Sleep, feed, change and lie there! You are right; now there are tantrums, games and tonnes of talking! I love it but harder work for sure. Thanks for sharing with #bestandworst x

  3. Totally agree with the lists!
    My little guy will be one next month, and he’s already ‘toddling’ and he’s grown up so much he’s no longer my little tiny baby.
    It’s makes me so proud, but also a little bit sad!

  4. I know everyone says it but doesn’t it go so fast! My boy is 2.5 and I look at him and can’t believe how HUGE he is now, it felt as if he was a baby yesterday. With #2 due soon, I’m starting to try and remember what having a baby was even like but I’m looking forward to savouring the baby days again. Thanks for linking up to #MarvMondays. Kaye xo

    • It is crazy how fast it goes by and the things you forget even though it wasn’t that long ago. All so exciting with baby #2 on the way and you look amazing! x

  5. Great list! I thought having a baby was tough, but when he became a toddler it was definitely a lot more challenging (“what did I find so hard when he couldn’t move” I’ve often thought!) but, as you say, it’s also so, so rewarding. Have fun enjoying the new stage!x

    • Thank you for commenting. I guess each stage seems tough until you get to the next, before we know it they’ll be in their teens giving us attitude! It is rewarding though seeing their little character come through x

  6. Ha ha I am making the most of all these things now whilst Josh is still a little baby! Although I can’t wait to see him grow and develop I am slightly dreading not being able to just leave him in his bouncer whilst I get things done! Thanks so much for linking up at #KCACOLS. Hope you come back again next Sunday

    • It’s such a mix of emotions! It’s like loads of proud mummy moments when they do new things, then you try and have a quick shower with a little person thinking it’ll be fun to through his trainers in with you. Fun times to come :o) x

  7. A great list! Dot is 18 months now, and I’ve noticed day by day that my little baby is becoming a proper little girl!

    Thanks so much for linking up at #KCACOLS. Hope you come back again next Sunday:)

    • I know, it’s crazy how much they develop and change. We got a letter from his nursery the other day telling us that he’ll be moving in to the nursery room, he only moved in to the toddler room just before Christmas. I’m waiting to see what new things he’ll be picking up from the older children lol!! x

  8. There were a few things on your baby list that I could never do lol! Such as leaving him to sleep anywhere and doing the house work – he has always been a terrible sleeper and requires maximum Input to get him to have a short nap! That said, I do miss having a living room rather than a playroom and I do miss being able to carry him on my chest on a sling whilst he slept. At 16 months we are in tantrum city right now, the terrible twos have definitely come early but I love every second and I love watching him grow, change and develop. It really does go too quickly though! #KCACOLS

    • Oh my totally agree with the living room thing. We ended up buying storage from ikea with the plastic boxes and setting that up in our passage way, so now that’s where all his toys live! I don’t mind him playing in the living room during the day but once he’s in bed it becomes a toy free zone! How funny is it that nobody tell you the terrible twos start before two, I was like what the hell is happening lol x

  9. A lovely post to read. My little girl is 10-months old, and already the bouncer days are over, as well as having an easy lunch with friends. But you’re right the older they get, the more fun they get. They are able to converse, crawl, and their little personalities start coming through which is lovely to watch. I wish you all the best entering the toddler years and potty training. Thanks so much for linking up at #fortheloveofBLOG this week, hope you come back next week. Claire x

    • How fast it goes by. I only noticed this past Bank Holiday how much of a toddler my little one has become, little actions he does, make me want to cry! x
