Wyatt’s First Squiggles and Giggles

Well Mr Landon has definitely missed his squiggles and giggles sessions for the past three weeks. However it was closed for two weeks so we don’t feel like we have missed too much!

Www.squigglesngiggles.com

Today was a gorgeous day so we were enjoying the sun again and had plenty of play outside. And even better is that daddy could join us! πŸ™‚

Wyatt was even awake for a lot of the session lapping up the attention and enjoying snuggles.

Squiggles and Giggles! Going Fishing

Favourite time of the week again πŸ™‚ messy play! This week the theme was “going fishing” at Squiggles and Giggles.

Fab new things to play with at squiggles today!

Cloud dough! Cloud dough is basically a sculptable goop, it’s not sticky when it’s done properly. It’s a combination of shaving foam and corn flour, it’s a great thing to play with its different from a lot of other things kids play with.

Here’s a recipe so you can try and make some and have sensory fun at home!

As well as the cloud dough today there was paint, chalk, treasure baskets, splat mats, boat making paint and craft area, a water play section and some fab freaky beads! Almost like plastic polystyrene balls that stuck together!

My Baby Shower! <3

So, whilst it’s been almost a month since my baby shower, I thought i’d leave it until i’d started my blog to really acknowledge it’s existence. My shower was thrown for me at 29 weeks pregnant, I was lucky enough to have a wonderful friend who came up with a great deal of games to play with goodies to win!

The baby shower idea was only accentuated by routine trips to the big shopping centre near myself where we couldn’t stop being overexcited with the pregnancy and the impending new arrival. And somehow on one of these trips we ended up stumbling across the WHALE THEME. Once we had found the whale theme, that was it, no stopping us from finding, no no wait…. HUNTING down everything whale themed.

Totally gone to town on the whale theme and now even new babies bedroom is going to be all whale themed! picked the perfect bedding from Mamas and Papas called Bubble Blue.

The excitement meant in the midst of things i’d managed to not done the invites in time and i had a lot of friends missing, but much to my avail! My friend from Tanzania was coming to see me and it coincided with the baby shower! <CUE> Excited tears and lots of jumping up and down.

The day of the shower came and I had arranged the most amazing whale themed desserts buffet, I was rather impressed with my level of faith to the WHALE THEME!

These were the invites designed by a lady on ETSY.

The food was fab! That was done by some contacts of mine I had a wonderful woman called Lisa do cakepops, iced cookies and the most amazing looking whale themed hazelnut nutella cupcakes! She then linked me up with her friend Allison Allan who did me again, an amazing whale themed cake! All of which were mighty delicious, Not to mention the favours I ordered from another local source Diane who made whale themed chocolate treats for people to take away! πŸ™‚

And then the best of all was a best friend of mine, the also expectant Libby did me some fab cupcakes her and her mum had obviously worked really hard on! πŸ™‚ They were beautiful I was so overwhelmed at the gesture perfect with the theme of blue and whales too!! These are them……

Charlie, Party host and Baby Shower extraordinaire came up with three games for us to play, they were;

1. Baby Shower Bingo! Where we filled our ‘bingo’ card with ideas of the things i might receive as gifts, and then as I opened them crossed them off if we had guessed correctly.

2. Pin the Sperm on the Egg, one which i’m sure shocked the older attendees! ha! although my grandmother-in-law seemed to have great fun in it! πŸ™‚

Image

3. Nursery Rhyme Quiz, this one was just too hard for most people to get! My partners auntie guessed the most right, then again, she is a teaching assistant πŸ™‚ THINK thats cheating! πŸ™‚ However me and my own auntie took great pleasure in mocking the game adding rude suggestions of things Tom Thumb sat on and that some other character caught, namely private parts and STD’S.

My guests also filled out prediction cards and wishes for the baby! both have been kept in his memories box for keepsakes πŸ™‚ Touching gestures and brilliant ideas! ❀

Can safely say I had the most wonderful afternoon with some fantastic friends and the ones who couldn’t be there were missed but i was blessed to have those who came. I got well and truly showered with presents! And I can’t thank the host Charlie enough! Lucky to have a friend like her not only did she throw me a fab shower but she made a fab nappy cake too!

ImageImageImageImageImageImage

And in true style of myself someone made sure I had a Ralph Lauren gift to complete the shower! Excellent! πŸ™‚ Little baby and I extend full thanks to everyone who could make it, and especially for all of the presents! However we’re still not sharing his name! So you’ll have to be kept in suspense!
