Starting Big School

My baby boy, my first born, started school in September, an emotional and exciting time for both of us! He is an August baby so I have been acutely aware that he is very young to be starting school and is starting off behind a lot of his school mates.

As a mum all you want is to do your absolute best for your children and being a teeny weenie bit of a control freak, I decided we needed a plan to help him as much as we can at home - first step 'Letters of the Alphabet'!

I got out our sample of Laila Hills' 'Alphabet Poster' and started teaching my son the letters and sounds of the alphabet, made all the more enjoyable and attention-grabbing by the gorgeous pictures and characters. Oh my goodness, he absolutely loves learning about the alphabet and it is definitely making a huge difference. Thank you lovely Laila for a fabulous piece of educational art!

Happy Babies

There is nothing we love more than a happy baby so we thought we would bring you a double dose to brighten your day.

For those of you who follow this blog regularly and have been anxiously waiting news of the arrival of Mia’s bundle of joy, here it finally is: - the gorgeous little guy, Gabriel, was born on the 7th of August. Both mum and baby boy are doing really well. Gabriel has just started smiling so I have the most adorable photo to share with you – soooo precious!

A little while back one of our fabulous artists, Belinda Strong, sent us a few photos of her beautiful baby girl, Elora, who had just started smiling. She is so gorgeous we just had to share one with you. She definitely has a twinkle in her eye – we think it’s all the beautiful artwork in her bedroom ;0) !
