Painting Christmas wrapping paper for today’s Christmas advent activity... 🎁🎄 Addison actually loved doing this WAY more than I was expecting. It was actually such a great sensory activity too as he was feeling the paint, scrunching the paper, crawling all over it, using some toy shapes to move the paint around. We had a lot of fun with this one!
Bonus ~ I did originally plan to do this outside, but it was a little cooler today so opted for in front of the tree. Thankfully Addison was happy to just sit on the mat and towel (which is SO unlike him so definitely loved this one!) and the paints were super watered down, kids finger paint so was easily cleaned up! 🎨✨ #addisonlucas#eightmonthsold#babyboy#christmas#christmasadvent#christmasadventactivity#adventactivity#babysfirstchristmas

Thank you to kiddylicious for send Harry a Christmas cracker, not sure what treats are inside because I’m going to save it for Xmas day for him 🎅🏽
Kiddylicious has donated a tasty breakfast, snack and dinner to Fareshare to help fight hunger over Christmas, which I think is great . Swipe ➡️ to see. #kiddyliciouscrew
Isn’t it crazy how siblings can be? These boys so far couldn’t be more different. Mase was always on the smaller side, always under the 50th percentile on the chart always has to be hand fed and shorter than average still perfectly healthy though. Then there’s jaxy always been above the 50th percentile does not stop eating (like ever), a little chunky monkey (also a shorty). But I absolutely love them both exactly the way they are. Something I learnt now I’ve got 2 children is that people will always judge. When I had mase as a baby even strangers in the check out line would for some reason feel the need to tell me that “oh his so tiny” how old is he” his very small” and it annoyed me but I didn’t say anything because I know he was perfectly healthy. Now I’ve got jax and his on the heavier side and ive found the exact same, a lot of people feel the need to tell me things like “oh his a big boy, look how chunky he is, he must eat to much and again I would ignore. But it just goes to show you’ll never be good enough for some people. But I will continue to tell both my kids they are perfect and beautiful just the way they are. 💕

We are so excited for the a Christmas holidays! Last summer Angelee and I spent most of our time indoors because it was too hot and, because Angel constantly wanted to catch up on her z’s 😝 This summer I’m excited to take her to all sorts of fun places! ❤️ On another note, these ice-blocks by @niceblocks are definitely going to be a summer staple for us 😍 They’re so delicious!
What are your favourite summer activities?
At 9 months, playtime for your baby is so much more fun! More than toys, at this age, babies are interested in exploring the environment.
P. S - New video is up link in bio📽
To satisfy the ever curious little beings and their absorbent minds you need to have more and more ideas how to engage your little one.
I always try different activities with BABY R which is pinned below... I couldn't take perfect pic with these activities but in future post I will share for sure.. I love her expression in this pic 😀
✔Reaching Out To An Object
Your baby could be cruising and crawling everywhere in the house by now. Place his/her favourite toy far away and let your little one crawl and reach out to the toy. This sense of achievement is great for them.
✔Singing Rhymes & Songs
This is an evergreen activity with children and it never fails. Sing rhymes and songs to your children, no matter what you think about your voice quality because the most beautiful voice in the world for a child is his mother’s ☺
Babies love to see themselves in the mirror. We can start telling them their body parts or parts of the face while playing in front of the mirror. Tell them where are the eyes, nose etc. ✔Outdoor Fun
It is never too early to take them to field trips, as simple as a park, market,mall.They might not be speaking much right now but they are in a sensitive period of language at this age & they absorb everything in their environment.
@beingmammabear I love laddoo's expression ☺
That is it for now and do look out for more such easy-to-do, month-wise activities for children in this series will share soon.. #earlylearning#milestone#milestones#tagfromtheheart#playtime#activityoftheday#motorskills#standingmilestone#babyoninstagram#babystagram#babiesofinstagram#igbabies#indianbaby#indianbabies#babyphotography#babyphotoshoot#earlychildhoodlearning#finemotorskills#creativekids#pixel_kids#littlefierceones#littleandbrave#letthembelittle#momtogs#momdaughter#indianmomblogger#motherhoodrising#lifeofrealmoms#mommy
These little guys look like two old men having a good ol’ chat! 😍I wonder what they are talking about! Do you ever wonder what is going through your little ones mind?

Love this photo of Indi opening her sister’s handmade card on her second birthday. She is so loved up, this kid. Her sisters truly just adore her and in their eyes she can do no wrong. I swear she’s going to grow up with a rather inflated sense of her own entitlement and self-importance!!!! But darn she’s cute! ❤️
Today the mum guilt is real, today is Charlotte's first day at nursery and look at her confused wee face.I am the awful mum who has ripped my sleeping baby from her safe and warm bed to drop her off with strangers. OK, so I may be being slightly dramatic but that is how I feel. Does Charlotte NEED to go to nursery? Probably not but recently work has got so busy, life has got so busy and my resilience has decreased. I should be grateful that my business is doing so well that I am finding it hard to do it all around the children but I feel guilty. Guilty that I'm not some earth mother who is completely happy being surrounded by chaos every day, guilty that I'm not feeding the kids organic spinach nuggets and guilty that I treasure those 2 minutes before someone needs me. I have even selfishly booked her slots into days where I will be doing admin/ drinking a hot coffee and urinating alone. But it's for the good of our family that I get some respite, I know this feeling will pass and that it will help me get some of my #mojo back and be a better parent/ human in the long run. Now I'm off to drown my sorrows in my £1.29 @mcdonalds coffee as I can no longer afford my @starbucks thanks to the extortionate childcare costs ☕😭
