Garden arch fail! 😕 One of those occasions where you get what you pay for. Shouldn't have expected much from a £5 one! 😆 Oh well. At least it let me know what these climbers looked like, including this unusual clematis. But it grows too crazy fast so not sure it's something to keep.
Climbing baby! 😆 No, he's not allowed on the stairs nor can do it safely - I was following him and hands on. 😉 He finally discovered yesterday that he could do it. 😜
This boy and his trains. 💕 Fergus thinks trains are just the best. I love seeing him sitting quietly with his various tracks laid out. And if he's not playing with them, he's always talking of them - boilers, buffers, shunting,  etc. 😁 He also loves flowers - not related to railways at all. 😉😄 He is especially fond of these anemones. He planted the bulbs months ago and is always sad when the petals drop and another one fades away. He came inside this morning very excitedly to tell me there were lots of purple ones again and I had to come see them. 💜 😊 #lovethiskid #lovehimsomuch #boymama #lifewithlittleboys #twoyearolds #toddlerlife #lifewithtoddlers #toddlersarethebest #toddlers #makingmemories #gardening #gardeningwithkids #letthembelittle #motherhood  #lifewithsevenkids #mamalife #childhoodunplugged #motherhoodunfiltered #motherhodunplugged #trainlovingboy
Caged baby! 😉😆😁 I've never been a fan of playpens -  free-range life is best. 💙 But with a big house and so many doors in all directions, my sanity (and his safety esp!) required somewhere to pop the baby for 10 minutes here and there. Like when you need to quickly load the dishwasher without dirty bowls being thrown across the room or get something in/out of the oven, etc. The things that are tricky with an adventurous baby at your feet. Or where he might go while you're occupied. So far today he actually loves his space. 💕 He did in the first 60 seconds stand up & grab the bars and then shake it to see if it would move along. 😂 But otherwise he has been happily walking along the sides, crawling,  playing with toys, and of course books. 😊 #boymama #babylife #lifewithababy #lifewithlittleboys #mamalife #childhoodunplugged #9monthsold #motherhood #letthembelittle #busybaby #motherhoodunfiltered #motherhodunplugged
Tempted to buy a pair of Crocs as a teething toy! 😆😂 (Just kidding, of course!) But seriously, can't count how many times a day we grab a Croc out of his mouth! 😜 #teethingbaby #teethingisseriousbusiness #babylife #lifewithababy #mamalife #lifewithlittleboys #childhoodunplugged #9monthsold #letthembelittle #teething #motherhood #motherhoodunfiltered #motherhodunplugged #boymama #lifewithsevenkids
My 5 big ones. 💕 And a few more photos from today. There were *huge* sunflowers 🌻 and so many different kinds of beautiful dahlias. Must remember to plant more of them next year. 😃
2 mamas and 13 kids! 💜 Absolutely lovely day spent with lovely friends at the botanic garden.😊💕 The children had so much fun together - they were still full of energy and would have happily stayed longer, but it does close at 5pm. 😁 The sun was out the whole day - lovely & warm too. ☀
I think George likes going out. 😊💙 #lifewithsevenkids #mamalife #lifewithlittleboys #babylife #lifewithababy #9monthsold #boymama #mountainbuggy #mountainbuggyduet #letthembelittle #motherhood #childhoodunplugged #motherhoodunfiltered #motherhoodunplugged
Double mischief -  I mean,  double curiosity! 😉😁😆💕 Left hand is trying to unplug the doorbell and the right hand is pulling out one of daddy's books! He is *always* busy - all day long. Always exploring and super curious about everything. 💙 #lovethiskid #lifewithababy #lovehimsomuch #boymama #lifewithlittleboys #busybaby #curiousbaby #9monthsold #babylife #lifewithsevenkids #mamalife #letthembelittle #motherhood #lifewithboys #childhoodunplugged #motherhoodunfiltered #motherhodunplugged
What I meant to photograph (instead of previous selfie). 😆 Impressed with how quickly the dahlia tubers grew and bloomed! 😍 Dh brought it back for me from Holland when he was stranded there in June.
When you're trying to take a pic of a flower and end up with a "selfie in a jungle" photo instead!! 😂
