Birthday Baby

A year ago today we had a tiny little pink blob to look after with a brand new face that we didn’t know. Today we have a big blobby pink thing with a face we know very well who makes us smile every day. Loads of people came round to see her today and luckily…

Where do babies come from?

Looking at past pictures of Edie and how much she’s grown it was making me think how she’ll be in the future. I was wondering about that moment when Edie will come to us and ask “how are babies made?”. I know a lot of parents try to avoid the subject and distract them with…

New Shoes??

On our walk abouts today we decided to pop in Clarkes, a top quality shoe shop, to get Edie’s feet measured. Don’t start thinking we had any intention of buying shoes there, naturally we were getting her size so we could get some cheap ones online like any good mothers would. The assistants were busy…

Pregnancy Belly

When we found out my partner was pregnant I insisted we took a photo of her growing belly every morning. In my typical style I forgot most of the time but I did get a lot. Here’s the video of our little monkey growing!

Co-Parenting Profiles

We searched loads of cabbage patches, gooseberry bushes, there are no storks to be found round our way so eventually we decided to google it and we found Co-parentmatch.com. Basically it’s like a dating site but where you’re asking if someone wants to mix their genes with you. It was all a bit odd really…

Edie’s Weekly Round-up

What did she get up to this week then? Last weekend she caught a stomach bug off of her friend. She gave that to me and timed it in such a way that I would start puking at work, she’s a clever girl. This is another of those moments that every parent turns around and…

Gummy Bears, bouncing here and there and everywhere…

I haven’t posted a blog for about a week and I was doing pretty well with making sure I posted twice a week. I haven’t just been lazy, I actually have a reason for it (for once). Edie’s finally got her first tooth poking through. I now understand what people meant when they told us…

Sound of happy

A friend told me about this. They got a load of babies, plugged wires into their brains, forced them to listen to all kinds of sounds to test which ones they liked best. Monsters. I’ve probably made it sound worse than it was…or made some of it up. But they really did test which sounds…

Resting bitch face

I’m worried Edie might have a serious case of resting bitch face. I’m even more worried that if she doesn’t that’s just the look she gives me! Compare that with this… Maybe it’s because she’s a skinhead, she might not be able to speak yet but her eyes are saying “you want some? I’ll give…

My Perfect Cousin

Edie has a cousin. Actually Edie has lots of cousins but one in particular has a soft spot for her. This is Walter. The very first time Walter met Edie we took some lovely pictures of them together. He was smiling away but Edie was giving him the evil eye. It’s a funny picture that…

Werk! Supermodel!

Edie had a photo shoot yesterday, she was spotted by a top designer who’s going to get her on the cover of vogue! That’s what I like to tell myself anyway. There’s a baby competition in the local paper and of course we’ve entered our little angel in it. They put the photos in the…

An audience with Edie

We’re not religious so Edie won’t have a christening. A friend of mine, who’s also not religious, had a Naming Day for her daughter so they could still have a nice get together and celebrate their little girl. We rarely put pictures of Edie on Facebook, and we find it difficult to meet up with…
