Baby led weaning

Aka I don’t know what I’m doing, let’s just roll with it! I tried making some different purées the day before I started Robot on food. It was such a faff and he didn’t eat any of it!  Very demoralising and I can see why people turn to shop jars …

Merry Christmas

It’s been quite an exciting week. The Robot has started on solid food, he has a new room, had his first Christmas but most importantly is the baby signing… My partner Dave (who hasn’t really been signing yet) noticed Robot was signing milk! Rather proud as it was an independent …

Five Month

We tried out our first YHA as a family, Grinton Lodge in North Yorkshire.  The Robot got his first snow while there!  Very magical!  It was such a lovely adventure as this was the only part of the country with snow, just when we happened to be there!  I enjoyed …

Four Month

Feel very blessed to have my little man.  I also don’t have any great adventures to tell of, life being a Mum is all fitting into place and we are getting on with it all!!  Robot now weighs 13lb13oz (6.29kg).

Finger spelling 

The first lesson from britishsign.co.uk.  Leaning to finger spell.  Who knew that when I was a GirlGuide all those years ago that I would learn something that would also come up 17 years later!  I’ve picked this up surprisingly easy and chuffed that I can go through the whole alphabet …

Let’s be serious now, time to sign

Since I have taken an interest in baby signing I’ve got more and more enthusiastic about using my spare time to learn British sign language. I’m using British-sign.co.uk online course to learn the basics of BSL. It is used as a revision tool for the national BSL level 1 course.  …

Three Month

At three months old we have been to Scotland in Dave’s Allegro!  We’ve hitch hiked and as ever been on lots of walks, Ingleborough being the biggest.  Robot is gaining personality all the time, he now weighs 12lb4oz (5.58kg).

First sign excitement…

Ever since my little Robot was born I have signed the sign for milk at him before putting him on the boob.  It has paid off as, not always, he does sign milk at me! Dubious a little as only 3 months but more than once he’s opened and closed …
