Let me take you back to the beginning!

As a first time mum I wanted the best for my little baby 'bean' as we called our growing baby!
I bought so many things before baby bean was born! Clothes, toys, cot, designed the nursery in neutral colours lemon and green.
I have such a wonderful family and the best mum anyone could ever dream of having, so with being the baby of the family they all look after me! I four wonderful sisters who are all quite a bit older than I am so I have had the pleasure of growing up with my three gorgeous nieces and two very cool and handsome nephews so they had all bought so many things along with m
I thought I knew it all already,when my mum kept saying "you will get so much when the baby is born and you won't use most of the things you have bought" I thought that you could never have enough things! (I had bought over 800 nappies ready for the arrival!)

WELL ..... our beautiful baby girl Matilda Rose was born on Wednesday 7th October 2009 at 6.42pm, after a terrible labour and a stay in hospital for both of us we were on our way home a few days later. As you might be aware we run the village pub and our customers had watched me grow from being a little girl then having a little girl of my own, we couldn't move for presents! (Tillie had 35 coats up until her being 6months old, she was bought that many clothes it was really crazy and with living above a pub we didn't have a lot of space!)
Coats, toys, teddies, clothes, money, the list goes on and on everyone was incredibly generous.
To be completely honest my mum did know best, she was right I didnt use the majority of the things I bought, all these really expensive gadgets and toys were hardly touched. I am going to review a few products from the beginning of our journey and hope that you will find it useful.

"Your baby has Laryngomalacia"!!!????

I will explain a little about my labour, maybe a detailed explanation might go up in the future but lets put it like this, it was not nice and after suffering from an Irritable Uterus throughout my pregnancy followed by a 42 hour labour and a scary ending but I got the beautiful Tillie Bean so was worth every second! Basically the cord was wrapped around her neck twice and right round her body. She had the hiccups so much during pregnancy and I am wondering if this does have a connection to the problem which was about to be revealed!

I remember a few nights after Tillie was born hearing a strange noises when she was breathing, I had to stay in hospital for a few nights as I needed a blood transfusion, I buzzed the nurse to check about her breathing but was told 'it is just mucous on her lungs it is very common it won't last long'.
Even as a new mum I thought that this wasn't the case, but who was I to argue.
This 'mucous' was getting louder and louder and by …

Yorkshire Wildlife Park

We decided that we would go to the Yorkshire Wildlife Park Today with it being so sunny outside.
We told Tillie we were going to see some animals, I love the way she repeats everything we say now, she managed to stay awake during the car journey and the whole way round the park.
She was more interested in the cat that was sunbathing near the entrance, I didn't think she was going to move as she kept saying "hewwo cat miaowww".
She liked the Meercats and the play area is near the entrance so she was quite happily swinging away looking at the horses.
It is a nice place to go, I wouldn't say that you could spend a whole day there as there isn't a lot to do but for under 5's it is ideal. They can run around, go and pat the sheep and goats, walk through the Lemur park and get up close to the Wallabies.
The food there isn't the best and is very expensive for 2xsausage chips and beans and two soft drinks it came to £15.85!!!…

Kid's do the funniest things!

One of our elderly customers knitted Tillie a skirt, it was very kind but not something that I would put Tillie in. Plus is was very small, when I was presented with this skirt my first thought was "oh no she is going to see how tiny it is compared to my jumbo baby and there is no way am I ever going to let her wear that".

But being polite and I really was touched that she had taken time to knit this for us that I passed the skirt to Tillie who put it straight on her head and posed.....

Luckily the customer found this highly amusing along with everyone else who was having lunch in our pub that day!
