Times seems to go so fast when you become an adult but I swear since I've become a mother it's doubled in speed! February flew by and saw my little boy turn 4 months old - how on earth has it been 4 months already?!
Since Arthur came along, it's fair to say he's slowly taken over my Instagram feed! Before I had him, I wasn't really sure how much I'd share on social media but I just can't resist showing off his beautiful little face. This month I found myself packing away his 0-3 month clothes, including the adorable teddy bear snowsuit above! I've saved some of his 'special' clothes that have sentimental value for future babies (best friends I'm looking at you!), given some to charity and then I'm selling a few bits and bobs over on Instagram. If you're currently looking to buy baby clothes at bargain prices check out my page @Arthurs_Wardrobe!
Any money I make will end up being spent on more baby clothes. It's so much more fun buying baby clothes than mummy clothes. I'm loving H&M's baby collection at the moment (see above for some of my recent buys) but I have to say I've found the the sizing a little random!
Trying new things...
February also saw me try my hand at scrapbooking, letter writing and baby wearing! Since I found out I was pregnant, I knew I wanted to create a scrapbook to give to Arthur when he's older. I'm giving each page a theme e.g. 'My Baby Shower,' 'The Day You Were Born' and taping in polaroids, cards and any little bits and bobs that fit! I think I'll do a post on my scrapbook once I've done a little more.
Hand-in-hand with the scrapbook idea is the Letters To My Baby book, which I posted about last month. I finally started it in February, with my first letter to Arthur being 'Your First Home.' It's such a lovely keepsake and I can't wait to write him some more letters to read in the future.
My first go at baby wearing...
Before I had Arthur, one of the things on my list to buy was a baby sling but I never got round to getting one. For me, the trouble was that there were so many different types, I just didn't know where to start. Luckily the lovely team over at Azaria PR sorted us out with an AmaWrap* and I'm absolutely loving it! I've got a review post coming up soon but I couldn't resist sharing a sneak peek of me and Arthur using the AmaWrap on Instagram. Arthur loves it as it gives him the opportunity to look around, whilst being safe, comfortable and close to my chest - his favourite place!
Chia Seeds - who knew they were good for your hair?
I've also been lucky enough to get to try out a fantastic haircare range from Natural World*, made with Chia Seeds. They're one of the most talked about superfoods right now but apparently a haircare wonder too! My review post will be going live at the end of this week. I've decided I need to start taking better care of my hair again. I've noticed a little hair loss, which is perfectly normal when you've had a baby but I'd really like it coloured in a couple of months time (new mummy, new hair) so I want to make sure it's in a good-enough condition to do that.
Speaking of needing to take better care of myself, I seem to have developed a biscuit craving in the last month and I'm not even pregnant anymore. SEND HELP.
