It feels like only yesterday that I was meeting the team from Graco and the rest of the Generation Graco bloggers but soon my time on the panel is coming to an end! Over the past six months we've had so much fun trying out various Graco baby and child products, learning more about the brand's history and future plans - and getting to finally meet bloggers I have "known" online for years! 

What's new from Graco for 2018?

Every Christmas Ian and I make the effort of going out to dinner somewhere, with the children of course, either on Christmas Eve, Boxing Day or sometimes actually on Christmas Day itself! It's rare that we treat ourselves so this is like a little gift to us. This year we have the addition of Essie and whilst she will be old enough to enjoy some food she's still going to be breastfeeding as well. That means that whatever I'll be wearing needs to be suitable for nursing in and Milk & Mummy kindly sent me the most perfect dress for the occasion.

The clocks went back last weekend and already the days are feeling incredibly short. Our heating has been turned on, we've switched to our warmer coats and it's getting darker so much earlier! The boys and I love to spend time outdoors and we're super lucky to live in an area of the country with lots of natural beauty to explore.

Nothing stops my boys wanting to play outdoors; if anything the cooler, damper months of autumn and winter are our favourite time of year for exploring the local woods! There are fallen leaves to run through and collect, sticks to play and build with, and acorns and pinecones to inspect. And of course those richly coloured red and yellow leaves make the prettiest of backdrops: last year it made the perfect setting for my gender reveal video when I was expecting Essie.

Back in June I announced that I was teaming up with Graco as one of their UK Generation Graco bloggers for 2017. At the launch event for the campaign I got to learn more about Graco's 60 year history, as well as take a peek at some of the products I'd be trying out.

One of those products is the Graco Milestone All-in-One Car Seat. I'm sure you know that Graco is renowned for its tradition of innovation with baby products that offer solutions for the real world of parenting - and the Milestone is the perfect example of that! This convertible car seat can be used from birth up to 36 kg (around 12 years old), making it the only car seat parents will ever need.

If there's one thing you get done this half term, make sure it's a trip to the fantastic pick-your-own pumpkin patch at The Pop Up Farm in Hertfordshire. The boys and I donned our wellies and headed over yesterday. We had SUCH a wonderful day!

I've always been careful about the ingredients that go into the products that I use on my own skin and hair, but even more so with my children. With Noah and Essie especially, as Noah suffers with eczema and Essie has such delicate skin being so young. Natura Siberica have created an award winning range of daily baby care products and we were sent a few of them to try out.
