Hello and welcome to week five you lovely lot! Last week we had so many fantastic posts – you are really making this Linky into something special and for that, Claire and I are so grateful!
This week has been full of ups and downs as Sophie has hit the dreaded four month sleep regression and is no longer sleeping though the night (I know, boohoo poor me!) People keep telling me that she is waking because she is hungry and ready to be weaned but the health professionals are adamant that I wait until she is six months. What are your thoughts on weaning? I’d love to hear from you – please leave me a comment in the box at the bottom if you get time.
Mr S and I have both had stinking colds too – I talked a bit about this in my daily vlog which you can watch here if you would like to see what I have been getting up to and the fiasco we had trying to get a four month old some passport pictures ready for our summer holiday.
It hasn’t been all bad though – I’ve had a really busy week on the blog . In amongst my own posts on Father’s Day and my review of Hey Workout , I’ve been writing an article for the re-launch of the Supernanny website , my post for my monthly slot on Meet Other Mums and a guest post for Laura’s Lovely Blog .
I was so excited this week to receive a new camera, the Canon G7X – it’s my first good quality camera and I can really tell the difference in my YouTube vlogs. I don’t know about you, but I find Instagram quite a difficult place to build followers now that they have altered the algorithm. However, I’m happy to say that since using my new camera and focusing on the type of pictures that I want to put out there, I have noticed a steady increase in ‘likes’ and followers. I’d love you to pop over to my Instagram account or my YouTube channel and let me know what you think. If any of you have accounts then let me know so I can come and support you as well.
On to business now….
As I mentioned, this Linky is just full of brilliant posts and I feel so proud of what we are all creating and sharing here.
It’s always so difficult to choose a favourite post because there are so many and so much variety but this week I’ve gone for a post written by Our.Rach – Sterilisation: Old Enough To Have A Baby, Too Young To Decide Not To This was such a thought provoking piece with a brilliant, writing style and it really stuck in my mind.
Claire’s favourite was by the fabulous JustsayingMum – If I Could Just Go Back For One Day but be warned, you are going to need tissues for this one, it’s emotional!
It would be really great, if you haven’t already, if you could pop across and show them some blog love.
If you are joining us for the first time and aren’t sure how a Linky works then give me a shout on Twitter and I will walk you through it.
