Mirror mirror on the wall


Who’s the fairest of them all? Well Liliya of course (and that’s according to her too!) she absolutely LOVES looking at herself in the mirror and will pose and pout for ages, she will also give herself a kiss when prompted it’s so sweet! The last few weeks can be described as the ‘settling in’ stage, I’m settling in at work and Liliya is settling in at nursery and is I dare say even starting to enjoy it. I also wish I’d bought shares in Calpol (paracetamol) as it feels like we’re getting through a bottle per week thanks to the lovely vat of bugs that is nursery, and every new infection is followed by ‘but this is so good for them to build up their immunity…’ yes but it’s also so hard for mummy and daddy isn’t there a jab that someone can invent for this?!

But not to moan, we are getting used to the new transition and as if I need another sign that she is growing up so quickly (sob!) Liliya is now the proud owner of her first pair of shoes! We went to Clarks and the service there is amazing, there is a good selection, they are used to dealing with babies and toddlers and to top it off…they take a photo of your little one and their first pair of shoes for you to keep! Guaranteed customer for life!
