How big is G-Man

Let’s be honest, no little persons room is complete without a height chart showing their progress over the weeks, months and years. With his move to a bigger room not that far away, we needed a height chart for G-Man and when the opportunity was given to us to review a decal we jumped at the chance.

Admittedly, we had started to measure George on the door frame of his nursery (we had both grown up being measured like this) but we wanted something a little more fresh and funky to use.

Review: Baby GroBags and GroLight Night Light

We were recently contacted by The Gro Company and asked whether we would review a Trundling Tractor GroBag, one of the new designs, and the GroLight.

As aficionados of GroBags since Little G-Man turned 3 weeks old, and users of a basic plugin night light which we weren’t too fond of, we were more than happy to give an alternative product a try.

Not just for tomatoes

For those new to GroBags, they are a fantastic alternative to the traditional sheets meaning that your little one can wriggle and kick as much as they like, and never kick their covers off. More sleep for parents!

In addition to the Grobag, each comes with a free nursery thermometer, helping to reassure you have the correct bedding to suit the temperature of their room.

The Final Countdown To Baby Due Date

We are now just 3 days away from Due Date but as of yet, there is no movement at all.

Since the last update, we’ve been a little bored just waiting for something to happen. Pancake is in the right place so we’re now just playing the waiting game.

I’ve Started Nesting

Better late than never, we feel we’re actually starting to “nest” as they say.

The nursery, although unlikely to be used for the first few months, now has everything in situ. Nappies, Water Wipes, cotton wool balls and nappy bags are all in easy reach of the change table so minimum effort is required at 3am.

The nappy bin lock has been checked, checked again, and checked for the final time to ensure our curious Labradoodle can’t get in and make a mess. Rockers and bouncers are waiting, grandparents are waiting, we’re waiting…

We’ve also managed to properly sort out our finances knowing that J plans to take 12 months maternity and that we want Pancake to go to nursery before her return, it was something that needed to be done so we could take as much advantage of things like the tax free Childcare Voucher scheme offered by employers.

Also with time on our hands, we’ve decided one of the first things we’re going to do once Pancake has arrived, is to sort out a holiday. Another cruise is most likely. Somewhere warm on a ship that offers baby sitting facilities 🙂

Waiting For The Arrival

It is surprisingly boring waiting for a little one to arrive especially if you’ve already done as much as you think is possible prior to their arrival.

As one last treat and while we can still function, we’ve decide to head out to our favourite restaurant for one last time as a couple 🙂 Next time we go…

Review: Teddy Bear Nursery Rug

All the furniture is now in place and the nursery is finally starting to take shape with only 3 weeks until Pancake is due to make an appearance.

The lovely people over at Childrens Rooms spotted my attempt at decorating the nursery by hand rather than use stencils or stickers, and have very kindly sent us two beautiful gifts that will compliment the nursery no end.

Review: Little Finger Door Protectors

Mr Postman arrived this morning with another delivery from China. Once again, the purchase was made 2 weeks ago on the AliExpress.com website and inside todays package were 10 Door Safety foam attachments costing a grand total of £1.96 delivered.

As we have a mischievous Labradoodle, our doors are often left open allowing her to roam and find a cool spot over the past few days. Every now and then when a gust of wind picks up the doors slam and I mean slam. They close with so much ferocity it would bring a grown man to tears let alone a mini-person!
