Do you know, I still can't believe that Essie is a year old. And I certainly haven't got my head around calling her a toddler yet. Just how much longer do you think I can get away with calling her my baby? She looks so grown up now, there's no denying that, especially when you see her walking around, chatting away, getting into mischief. Oh, so much mischief!

Last month Essie turned one and a few days later took her first steps. Since then there's been no stopping her. She tears through the house like a tiny Tasmanian devil and is into evvvvverything. It's a delight to watch her playing and learning and her collection of carefully chosen toys is steadily growing. We were sent a Hape Tito the Turtle Pull Along toy to review which is a great addition and ideal for little ones who have just started to walk.

Most readers will know that I'm a big fan of cloth nappies, what with all my fluffy spam on Instagram, and I have used reusable nappies with all three of my children. I have never been able to get my husband on board with them though, so we also use disposable nappies. There are also times when I would prefer to use disposable nappies myself, for example, when we go on holiday. I'm always keen to use products that are as environmentally friendly as possible so Bambo Nature's recent blogger event was a great chance to meet the brand, learn about the new skincare products, catch up with some familiar faces and have some fun!

It's National Weaning Week! From 7th - 13th May 2018 National Weaning Week aims to give families help, advice and recipes to make weaning as easy as possible. You can join in by sharing your experiences using #WeaningWeek2018 on social media! I have had three babies and each time they've started solids I learnt something new and discovered new products to make the experience easier. One of those is the Tidy Tot Bib & Tray set. I bought this for my daughter a few months ago and it has made mealtimes far less messy!

Jude was only two and a half when Essie was born and his little legs weren't quite ready for walking everywhere. When Jude was a baby I used to carry him in a sling whilst pushing Noah in a stroller, and I sometimes do this too with Essie. But for various reasons it's not always practical, and this is when the Lascal Maxi Plus BuggyBoard comes in really handy!

This year marks six years of me either being pregnant, breastfeeding, or both. That's a lot of change that my body has gone through, especially my boobs! This year also marks the 25th birthday of multi-award winning maternity lingerie brand, Bravado Designs. I've mentioned before about how previously, I was never too fussy about maternity and nursing bras; as long as I could feed my baby then that was good enough for me. Then, I discovered Bravado Designs, and I've never looked back. Nowadays, they're the only brand of bras I wear!

Essie is at that wonderful curious age of being inquisitive and wanting to explore. Open this cupboard and see what's inside. Shake that toy and see what sound it makes. Stack these blocks and see how tall they get. Anything new that comes into the house gets thoroughly investigated by her, like these two adorable Disney Baby toys we were sent by Rainbow Designs; the Patch Comfort Blanket and Dumbo Ring Rattle.
