And She’s Off! Walking Conquered!

And She’s Off! Walking Conquered!

Our lives have just changed again. No we’re not having another baby (sorry, Mum). PG has suddenly found her confidence to walk on her own. So many things are whizzing around in my head right now this post might be random word mush. Do I no longer have a baby (probably not)? Do I have a toddler now (yes I think so)? Do I now have to be REALLY damn careful with the corner of that TV unit (definitely)? Does…

Calpol Vapour & Nightlight Plugin Review

Calpol Vapour & Nightlight Plugin Review

A whole month has (almost) passed since my last post. It’s been a busy month for various reasons, not least PG getting a stinking cold (which I’ve now got, but who am I to complain). Given that she’s slept brilliantly since she was about 6 weeks old, this was a bit of a shock to the system when it came to nighttime. After a few rough nights of her trying to suck her dummy and breathe through a properly blocked…

One Year Old

One Year Old

Gushing dad post follows, if gushing offends you stop reading now…. If my WordPress scheduling has worked, this post should be hitting your screens exactly 1 year after PG was born. 23:44 on December 30th. We’ve made it. We’re here! Wifey and I have successfully kept a human alive and well (and happy, too) for 12 months. A stonking achievement. Don’t get me wrong, I didn’t have any doubt that we’d accidentally cause the little beast harm but I genuinely…

A Birthday Poem

A Birthday Poem

Here is a short little rhyme From a proud dad to his daughter She impresses me every single day With all the things we’ve taught her. To my little superstar A year has passed since you were born, Every day has been just grand. From playing hard with all your toys, To just holding your hand. I didn’t know what life would be like Once we had a kiddy. It really took my breath away When you were born so…

The Eleven Month Milestone

The Eleven Month Milestone

Rather than bitch and moan about how time is flying by way too quickly, I won’t. I know I’m late (again) with this post, and I decided as I got to the office early this morning I’d better get something scribbled down. As with all the months that have gone by full of learning, development and fun, the last has been no exception.¬†PG is now crawling like she’s been crawling all her life, and will be walking very soon I’m…

Climbing. The. Stairs.

Climbing. The. Stairs.

Oh. Deary. Me. PG has¬†discovered the staircase. Instant regret about moving from a bungalow to a house with stairs (we’d have never even had to contend with this problem in the old house). I joke, of course. It’s better to teach her all about health and safety around stairs at home than on some other random stairs. Luckily or unluckily, depending on how you look at it, PG can now get her leg up high enough to deal with stairs,…
