    My ‘baby’ is nearly 18 months!

    At the end of this month Jelly Bean will be 18 months old!! I know we say it all the time as parents but where does the time go? Jelly Bean is developing such a character, I think he is going to be quite different again from his older siblings, he is quite the comedian […]

    Happy 6th Birthday Little Bean!

    How can it be that this beautiful little lady has been in our lives for 6 years already. I still remember the day that she was born like it was yesterday, it was hot sunshine and I had to have a fan constantly blowing on me in hospital (we were allowed them at the time). […]

    I swear if you close your eyes for just a second, these babies grow a whole inch!

    Potty Training Pride for Beanie Boy

    A few weeks ago I blogged that we had attempted to potty train Beanie Boy over the summer holidays but we hadn’t felt he was clicking with it so we were putting it on the back-burner for a while. From reading the “How to Potty Train” book I implemented the changes as it suggested; We […]
