Molly-May's Moments Eleven Month

I cannot believe that in a few weeks time my little baby girl will be no baby anymore but a 1 year old instead!! Here is her 11 month update (late as usual)

Climbing - With us only just returning back from Germany and a few days staying with Mr. C's Family over Christmas we still haven't manage to unpack all the bags so MM decided to climb up a suitcase (which was lying down on the floor) to get onto the chair check out the Christmas tree lights and then spin around to sit down facing the table just like her big brother. Mr. C. watched in amazement nearby. 
Baby Led Weaning - This little girl wants to be very independent and spoon feeding is a no go! She eats whatever we eat and way more i think she is having a growth spur again!
Routine/Sleep - We are finally back sleeping through most nights again, but not without a battle i had to do a bit of sleep training inform of controlled crying and after 1.5hrs we got there in the end. there are nights where she is joining me in my bed (Daddy is still on nights) after 1am but that's fine by me.
Goodbye Breast, Hello Bottle - I gradually stopped Breastfeeding and on Christmas i finished for good. Molly-May is fine with it but has her own way to make sure to still be close to my boobies. As soon as she gets hungry or tired her hands are right down my bra which is rather embarrassing when we are out and about and i am in a conversation haha!
Nod, Nod, Nod your head - She can now nod her head and shake it to say No on demand although only if she is in a good mood. Its funny how much silly stuff us parents get exited about kids learning!
Walk the Walk(er) - Oh yeah we got Finns old wooden walker out of the garage and she is off.
check out the video of her 2. ever wonky walk:
Dance the Dance - I mentioned before that MM loves to bust some moves and i thought i show you with a little video what she does all day long:

Nothing is safe anymore - Now she found out how to open the kitchen cupboards its about time Daddy is sorting out some locks on there!

Smiggle - Where a Smile meets a Giggle!

Let me tell you! We have been well and truly smiggly-fied!!

Smiggle is the hot new stationery brand in the UK! They came all the way from far away Australia where they started back in 2003 and expanded since all over the world from New Zealand to Singapore and landed here in the UK now.
The lovely People over at Smiggle have kindly send me some amazing goodies just before Christmas:

How cute does this Konnichiwa Kimono Pencil Case (RRP: 10£) look! It comes in 3 designs opens up like a kimono and has zips on both sides. Now i wish i would be back in school! 

The 30 Pack Pens (RRP: 16.50£) is my favourite by far! With this pack you not only have the choice of gel, glitter, neon and paste which is amazing by itself but they are scented!! Me being me i didn't read the outside and started using them to finish off my homemade photo calendar for my grandma but my brother tried one and thought its smelling rather nice, the following 15 minutes we had great fun guessing the scent of each pen!!

With the weather being all chilly and rainy outsides whats better to take a hot water bottle (available in store) with you to bed or in my case to snuggle up to when i am watching TV in the evening and the dog-tastic Smiggle hot water bottle with the cute pub design will keep you warm!

The Pin Art Star (RRP: 10£) is a fun game to create different shapes, i remember this from my youth one of our family friends had one (but not such a cool and bright star shaped one) and i loved playing with it every time we visited them.

Due to it being the festive season and we where just about to head to Germany to spend Christmas with my Family i went to their brand new Westfield Store to pick up a few more Smiggle Products to take home as presents!

One of them was the Macaroon eraser set (RRP: 10£) it looked so tasty Molly-Mays God mum and her 4 Daughters who opened it up Christmas day thought it was a sweet and try to take a bite off it! Those and the Pack of 30 Pens which i bought a second pack of where defiantly one the best Christmas presents i gave away!

If you are looking for something unique, colourful, different, vibrant stationary look no further then Smiggle if its for school, homework or play they have something for everyone!!
You can check out the complete range over at the Smiggle UK Website or follow them on their Facebook and Twitter Pages to be in the know about all the new products coming up!

I am back and so is my Mojo!

Yes can you believe it a once so freaking precise, list loving German girl like me 
lost the sense of organisation...gone...just like that!
This happened shortly after my darling daughter was born now I could make it easy 
 blame her but then that wouldn't be fair!

Anyway I am back in full swing there already been some lists written up and 
I finally starting to enjoy this wedding planning malarkey!! 

The invitations for the English folks are decided on and our wedding homepage is taking shape!! 

I am hoping to go wedding dress shopping soon...oh yeah I still haven't fixed myself on a dress....
and I am yet to sell my first dress although I am certain I won't wear it 
(I just haven't found the time to list it yet)
Once the English Invitations are out and the website is finished I am onto finding a design I like for the German invitations so they can be shipped out to my motherland soon too!

The next big thing is deciding on what I want to do on my hen night 
I nailed it down to spa or afternoon tea! 
But who's knows!

So long, I am off to write another list!

From the colourful characters and fantastic underwater setting to the amazing Octopod where the Octonauts live, there’s great scope for a really unique, interactive theatre experience. We can’t wait to take fans on an adventure like never before.’
