Sophia You Are Three

Dear Sophia 

Today you are three years old, this year has honestly flown over so quickly as I still remember sitting down and writing you a letter for your second birthday. In fact I still remember writing about your first birthday! And now your are three which seems so much older, you are a proper little girl now and no longer a baby or toddler any more. 

This year has seen you change so much, you have grown from a little toddler into a proper little girl who is Disney princess crazy and loves dressing up. You still have such a big personality and most definitely rule the house as you have everyone wrapped around your little finger, especially your daddy!

Other Bloggers Lives Featuring Faded Spring

Welcome to another week of my guest post series Other Bloggers Lives, I normally post these interviews on a Wednesday but as it is my daughters 3rd birthday tomorrow and we have lots of lovely plans for the next few days I have decided to post this today instead. This week I am featuring the very lovely Ana from Faded Spring, a blog I have been reading for a few months now. If you have not heard of her fashion and lifestyle blog before then go check it out as it is amazing!

Ana is not a parent so a few of the questions are slightly different but her answers are so inspiring and refreshing to read. So lets find out a bit more about the blogger behind Faded Spring.

A 3rd Birthday Gift Guide

In just two days time my little girl Sophia will be turning three years old! When we started thinking about what to buy her for her birthday we really struggled deciding what to actually get her as she has so many toys already. We have asked her what she wants but she has only really asked for small things like a Belle doll or a tiara. So as we have struggled on what to buy for are little girls third birthday I thought that I would do a little gift guide in case anyone else is stuck on what to buy a little girl (or boy) for a gift.

Working From Home

As I type this now on my laptop I am currently sitting on my bed, drinking a cup of tea and getting a few hours of work done whilst my partner watches Disney films downstairs with our children. I don't actually go out to work any-more, I gave up my job in social care when I was pregnant with baby number three, as childcare for two children under two was ridiculously expensive. I was bored as a stay at home mum though, I missed work and using my brain. So I started this blog, just as something to do to stop me being bored and as a way to record my pregnancy.

Orchard Toys Little Bus Lotto Mini Game - Review

My almost three year old is a big fan of Orchard Toys games and puzzles so when I heard that they were bringing out a range of Mini Games I knew that these would be perfect for keeping her entertained whilst travelling this summer. Last week we were lucky enough to be sent one of the new mini game to try out, Little Bus Lotto. 

Little bus lotto is suitable for children aged 3 plus and is for 2-4 players and is super simple to play. You simply pick from the red,green, yellow or blue bus and then turn all the animal cards over and take it in turns picking a card and match them up to the animals on the buses, whoever fills up their bus with all the animals first wins.

Thinking About My Summer Wardrobe

Now that it is May and the sun is shining I have been struggling with what to wear, as I don't really have many nice summer outfits. I have either been heavily pregnant or had a young baby for the last three summers due to having children close in age, meaning I lived in frumpy maternity clothes. I am planning on having a bit of a shopping spree to treat myself to some new summer outfits, I also have a few weddings to go to this summer so I need some new dresses too to go with my new shoes.
