Alyssa and I had some girl time yesterday when we visited the My little Pony Friendship Land at Canal Walk and we had so much fun. I really loved My Little Pony growing up and it was totally awesome that I could share the experience with Alyssa.
We loved the exciting world of My Little Pony Friendship Land where the My Little Pony sociability and friendship values came to life with a variety of fun activities. These include a friendship bracelet workshop, pony fashion play and magic hair station set out within the My Little Pony Equestria, the magical land where the ponies live.
My little man turned six months yesterday and it’s hard to believe that in just a few months I will need to start planning his first birthday party. He is growing so beautifully and has become such a social butterfly. Alyssa is already his favorite playmate and she has him giggling and babbling all the time. He still wakes up once or twice during the night but goes back down quite quickly. I am REALLY hoping that he will begin to sleep through the night within the next few months. I read that once protein is introduced to his meals (which I have just done this week) , it should keep him fuller for longer and hopefully that will aid him to sleep longer stretches during the night. Fingers crossed.
Breast or bottle? That’s the question all pregnant women ask themselves before giving birth and there are of course advocates on both sides keen to win you over. I’m also sure this post has been written a million times but… we each have our own story and every baby is unique. . What works for one may not work for the other.
While I really do believe in the benefits of breastfeeding, I don’t have anything against formula either. There are many reasons why some moms prefer formula over breastfeeding and each to their own. I’ve stuck with breastfeeding as it worked out so well with Alyssa and up until now with Aidan. As long as Aidan is gaining weight and healthy, I will continue to breastfeed however I won’t have a problem introducing formula to him should the need arise. People always say that the longer you breastfeed the healthier baby will be throughout childhood. WHATEVER! I breastfed Alyssa for a year, yet she’s been getting sick every other week since she’s started school! Aidan is breastfed, yet he picked up RSV from Alyssa!
Next up in the Celebrating Baby’s first birthday series is the gorgeous Jax, who turned one on the 18th of August. He is such a bundle of joy.
He’s parents Emma and Donovan, who are good old friends of ours, just love action hero’s like Superman… so you can imagine their excitement when they found out they were expecting a boy to share this love with.
