Get a free canvas from the Canvas Factory

Get a free canvas from the Canvas Factory

If you’re anything like me, you have tons of photos on your computer, phone and tablet, just waiting to be printed out and displayed in your home. I have empty photo frames sitting on shelves, gathering dust;  I forgot to take out the sample image in a couple of them and had visitors ask which members of my family they were. That would be embarrassing enough, except that it happened 2 years ago and they’re still there…

The images that you capture of your family and friends are priceless. With help from The Canvas Factory, you can turn them into amazing pieces of art on canvas, acrylic glass or metal for you to treasure for years to come.

My First Mother’s Day

My first Mother’s Day was really lovely 🙂 I spent it with my parents, my sister and her son and we kept it really simple; we took the dogs for a walk, had a lovely breakfast and lunch, and then did some gorgeous art work with Hannah and Zeb.

Here is my day in photos:

My budding musician

My budding musician

When I was pregnant, Hannah would groove away whenever Bob Marley was played. She wasn’t really fussy which song, but particularly enjoyed “Could You Be Loved?”. I tried to engage her in the songs after she was born but I think she was a bit young; definitely a goal for the near future though.

Lately I’ve been wondering about the benefits of ‘sensory play’. I’ve read a bit about it through the Facebook page Sensory Learning 4 Life, as well as finding great resources on Pinterest, so I decided to have a go and gave Hannah a bowl and a spoon, to see what would happen. I didn’t expect it to be so popular and for Hannah to start playing with rhythm and repetition!

 

I’m also really keen to try ‘Cornmeal Play’ found on the Productive Parenting website. The idea is that you fill a container with cornmeal (or a similar substance), simply add a couple of measuring cups or scoops and away they go! The skills covered include tactile stimulation, sensory development and fine motor skills. I might even try it later today 😀

If you have any great sensory activities for your baby, I’d love to hear them!

The Amazing Kicky-Poo!

The Amazing Kicky-Poo!

Hannah has developed yet another skill – the ability to get across a room in her rocker 😀

Check it out here: https://www.facebook.com/photo.php?v=10151185756991400

I am constantly amazed at how many skills she has developed already! This last week in particular, which is why I’m hoping that this is the reason behind her lack of sleep and general irritability at the moment. Perhaps it’s all developmental? You know, a wonder week or something? Can they still get those at 6 months?

2 nights ago Hannah was up from 2am til 5am; I tried feeding her, rocking her, singing to her… I eventually decided to bath her and she was out not long after that, thank goodness. Last night she ended up rocking herself to sleep in the chair, which was quite useful! 😀 She slept on it from midnight to 5am, which is the longest she’s slept for in one hit, so that’s a win I reckon!

Back when she was sleeping the longest, I actually wasn’t using a routine as such and would put her to bed between 8pm and 9pm, whenever she was ready. Lately, however, I have been trying to establish more of a routine; could it be that Hannah’s a bit of a night owl and doesn’t want to go to bed at 7pm?
