Six Months

Age - six months

Weight - 16lbs 3oz

Height -  27 1/2"

Sleeping habits - She still sleeps through the night but I have to wake up some time (I don't look at the clock) and put her pipka back in 3-5 times in a row. She's also still in her Shnuggle Moses basket in our room but NBH is pushing for her to go in her own room.

Eating habits - We started solids the day after she turned 6 months. I attempted baby led weaning and started her out with a chunk of avocado. She kept gagging and then spewed up all over herself so that was the end of that. I'm sure BLW is great for some people but I can't deal with gagging. So we moved on to rice cereal. She wasn't really sure about it but we'll try again and then do the same as we did with her brother and I'll make veggie and fruit purées.

Favorite activity - Her feet, kicking, petting/stroking people, looking at her brother and splashing in the bath.

Milestones - Is there a milestone about learning to control their tongue? Her tongue is persistently out of her mouth.

Firsts-  solid food, time in a pushchair

Red Nose Day 2015 #IGiveAShirt

Red Nose Day 2015 is this Friday! Blondie Boy has been collecting all the different noses on offer this year and was super excited when TK Maxx asked if we wanted to take part in special Red Nose Day challenge.

TK Maxx is the official retailer for the Red Nose Day t-shirts and for this campaign they have teamed up with five of the biggest names in fashion Anya Hindmarch, Karl Lagerfeld, Diane von Furstenberg, Henry Holland and Matthew Williamson! Each limited edition design is completely unique to each designer with a very special Red Nose Day twist featuring quirky quotes.

Profits from the sale of each T-shirt are donated to Comic Relief to help people living incredibly tough lives across Africa and here in the UK. 

This year TK Maxx have also launched their #igiveashirt social campaign. Lily Allen has launched the shirt spin challenge and Blondie Boy, Baby Girl and I decided to give it a go!

Blondie Boy and his sister both went for the Anya Hindmarch tees (you have to love the Oscar Wilde quote) and I decided that Diane von Furstenberg was more my style.

Then it was time to spin!


Even Baby Girl gave it a go!

Will you say #igiveashirt too and take part in this Red Nose Day challenge? It's an easy and fun way to show your support and if a 5 year old and 5 month old can do it so can you!

Taking part is easy:

·         Put on your new TK Maxx Red Nose Day T-shirt
·         Film yourself spinning it 360°
·         Share your video online using #igiveashirt
·         Challenge your friends to prove they Give A Shirt too!

Red Nose Day tees are available at TK Maxx starting at £5.99 for children and babies (with at least£2.50 going to Comic Relief) and from £12.99 (with at least £6 going to Comic Relief) for adults.
