Other Bloggers Family Lives Featuring Family Fever

Welcome to another week of my guest post series Other Bloggers Family Lives. This week I am featuring another of my all time favourite bloggers, Kate from the popular family lifestyle blog Family Fever. I discovered Kate's blog over two years ago now and I loved reading about her family life in Devon, her pregnancy with her youngest Eliza, the brilliant product reviews that she does and reading about her recent career change. It is such a lovely blog covering a real mix of subjects and beautiful family photos.

Scarborough Sea Life Sanctuary

My youngest child Jacob is crazy about penguins, he sleeps with a cuddly one and gets excited whenever he sees them on TV. So when we were selected to be Scarborough Sea Life family ambassadors for the year I knew that he would be so excited, as it meant he could go and visit the penguins whenever he wanted.

Starting Pre-School At Two Years Old

Exactly one month ago today my little boy Jacob turned two years old and last week when he was two years and three weeks old he started pre-school. Just turned two sounds far too little to start pre-school doesn't it? He is still so little to me, probably because he is my last baby. People are often surprised that we have sent him when he is still so young, I am myself at times. I never intended to send him when he was so little, after all I am a stay-at-home mum so their is no real need for him to go.

So why did we send him when he is only two? 

Simply because he wanted to go.

Disney Sofia The First Toys

My little girl is called Sophia and since she was tiny she has loved Sofia the first, sharing the same name means that my little Sophia actually thinks she is Sofia the first. They have the same big blue eyes and brown curls and they both love the colour purple. Whenever my little girl sees anything with Sofia the first on she has to have it, she loves it that much. 

Imagine her utter delight when a parcel arrived recently full of Sofia the first toys and accessories from Jakks Pacific, I have never seen her so excited. We were kindly sent a royal tiara, toy camera, a mini royal prep art class playset, Princess Amber's closet playset, three figures, a magazine and a backpack to put it all in. My very own Sophia could not wait to start playing, of course she had to dress up in her dressing up outfit to play with her new toys.

CaseApp Review And Giveaway

My teenage daughter is constantly glued to her iPhone and ipad, she loves them so much and is always buying new cases to customise them with. So when I was recently contacted by CaseApp and asked if I would like to review a customised phone case and ipad or laptop skin, I knew that my teen would love to try these out.

You can either select one of the many pre-designed covers or you can create your own. My teen decided that she wanted to create her own, which was actually really quick and easy to do. It was so easy that she managed to design her phone case and ipad cover within minutes and with no help from me at all.

Coping With Baby Colic

My little boy Jacob very recently turned two and lately I have been doing a lot of reflecting on the past two years. His baby days seem to have whizzed by in a total blur and it is only recently as he has got that little bit older that life is starting to settle down again, I finally feel like I have got this whole parenting three children thing sussed. I actually enjoy family life now as I am no longer constantly exhausted and stressed.
My youngest two children were born just 14 months apart (I know I am crazy), I had a newborn a 14-month-old and a tween - who was just starting high school. Life was hectic with three children who needed me, a house that needed cleaning and many, many sleepless nights. The first few weeks whizzed by in a blur of night feeds, constant nappy changes, non-stop laundry and copious coffee consumption.

Welcome to another week of my guest post series Other Bloggers Family Lives, this week I am featuring the super lovely Emily from Emily And Indiana. Emily is actually one of the very first bloggers that I came across when I started blogging, I have read her blog from day one and have loved watching her daughter Indiana grow from a tiny baby to an almost three year old!
