This is my second week of Project 365, but week 10 generally.
Sun 2 March was my Aunty's birthday, after seeing her, we went for brunch in Seaside Village with my Nan and Grandad. I had my first brunch of toast, baked beans and egg! I loved it! And my tummy was ok afterwards. Yay!
Mon 3 March Inset day so no school for Lea and Luke. It was a lovely day so we walked by the pond and fed the birds. Then we went to our favourite cafe.
Tues 4 March I went to Granny Jane's as mummy works on a Tuesday. She made me pancakes with soya milk and I loved them! Obviously it's Pancake Day and these were my first pancakes. Yum!
Weds 5 March Mummy had a long drive to Bristol to take MeeMee for her University Interview. I stayed with Nana and Grandad. Mummy was not home until late, I missed her.
Thurs 6 March I stood up on my own last night! Mummy was nearly crying! And yesterday I 'walked' with Nana holding my hands for the first time! Mummy missed it, so I did it again, and mummy got a photo.
Fri 7 March Such a beautiful day, we went for a lovely walk with Granny Jane along the front at Seaside Town, then walked down to the beach. Guess what? They had coffee! It felt like being on holiday. I am so lucky to live here.
Sat 8 Mar another glorious day, we walked around the castle, and along the pond to feed the birds. It is so warm, I saw lots of doggies and birdies.

I love linkys as they give a focus to write about and a chance to record special days of my life in a lovely way. This is my first #countrykids with Coombe Mill (which looks a fantastic place!) I live in a very beautiful part of the world, so spend a lot of time outdoors. I'm not walking yet, so am limited to my pushchair until I'm up and about on my feet!
I love water too, and have a beautiful millpond in my town, where I visit most weekends to feed the birds. There are lots of ducks and swans, which make me laugh. I also walk (well, am pushed!) along the beach a lot, and on Friday, it was so warm and sunny that it looked like somewhere abroad. I can't wait until the Summer, and being able to run into the sea, and on the sand.

I have just discovered Word of the Week with The Reading Residence, and this weeks word is perfect for me at the moment.
I have been very unsettled recently, partly due to me teething and partly due to my tummy. I cut my second tooth a couple of weeks ago, and my first top tooth is just under my gum, it looks a big tooth and it's hurting me. It has made me a bit grumpy too. Mummy has been giving me Calpol and rubbing gel on my gums, which helps, but I am still grumpy.
I am dairy intolerant, but I also have a very, very sensitive digestive system, and it doesn't take much to upset it. If I have too much of certain things, it upsets me. Foods like bread, potatoes, teacakes, banana, I am fine with one or two of these a day, but if I have more in one day it seems to block my tummy and I get terrible tummy pains in the early hours of the morning. I cry and cry and slam my legs down, then crunch them up, trying to ease the pains. Mummy has to get up to try and soothe me, but I just have to wait until they pass. Only when I have pooped does my tummy clear and I feel better. The last week or so, I have been unsettled most nights, and mummy has also figured out that sweetcorn and raisins upset me too. Last night was the first night in a little while that I slept better and my tummy was ok :)

My #triedtested review this week with Going on an Adventure and Family Fever is for disposable nappies! Essential, easy to use, but expensive, there are so many available. This is my review of nappies that I use regularly. ( I haven't been sent any free nappies to test or anything like that, mores the pity!)
I have tested Tesco Loves Baby, Wilkinsons Cosy Fit, Lidl Toujours and Pampers Baby Dry & Simply Dry. We tried Huggies ages ago, but they leaked quite a lot, day and night so we don't use them.
When I was teething at Christmas, I had horrendously runny, full, explosive nappies (Sorry! Too much information!?) and most nappies leaked. Pampers were the best at holding in as much in as they could.
When I was born, I wore Pampers, because mummy said they were the best, and in the Newborn sizes they are quite affordable. She also had lots of vouchers to save £1 per packet. Tesco's Newborn were on offer, so she tried them too, and they were just as good. I didn't find the umbilical cut away made any difference to me, the nappy still went over my tummy cord, or mummy had to fold it over. That might just be the shape of me, rather than the nappy! Either way, it wasn't uncomfortable for me. Mummy's tip is to buy a pack a week for the last few weeks of pregnancy, but not too many, as we grow out of them quite quickly!
As I move up the sizes of nappies (I'm now in Size 5) the amount of nappies in each pack decreases. And Pampers become more expensive.
Mummy was using Pampers Baby Dry at night, she found Tesco ones were great for the day, but didn't last me through the night, I wee A LOT! Wilkinsons nappies too are great for the day, but not for night time. We found no real difference in the performance of Pampers Baby Dry and Simpy Dry, other than Simply Dry are cheaper. Mummy says hunt around for special offers!
Last night, mummy, by mistake, put me in a Lidl Toujours nappy, and guess what? It was just as good as Pampers! It didn't leak, or loose shape it saw me through the night fine :D
Mummy paid under £5 for a pack of 44, brilliant value!
Current prices are:
Lidl Toujours £4.69 for 44
Wilkinsons Cosy Dry £3.96 for 28
Tesco Loves Baby £4.88 for 26
Pampers Simply Dry £5.60 for 32 at Wilkinsons
Pampers Baby Dry £5.00 for 23 at Wilkinsons
So, the overall winner on performance, comfort and value is Lidl Toujours Nappies

Mummy was sent a personalised photo phone case to review by Mr NutCase and I have to say it looks fantastic! And I don't just mean because there are four photos of me on it! Mummy said the website is extremely simple and easy to use, she choose her phone brand and model, and decided on a layout from various layouts of photo options. Mummy selected from the photos on her computer, and dragged them into position onto the case layout. She previewed the case, rearranged a bit, and she could have started again if she needed to.
Delivery was fast, and mummy received an email updating her regarding delivery. The case was protected in a padded bag, and delivered by Royal Mail, so no waiting for a courier. The case is a perfect fit (mummy has an iPhone 5) and she says it makes her phone feel great. My photos look brilliant, clear, great colours, and a lovely matt finish. The photo of it above does not do it justice.
Mummy has had lots of people telling her how lovely her case is, and asking where she got it. Mummy is telling everyone about Mr NutCase and how good their cases are. Mummy's case is £14.95 and everything has Free delivery - worldwide! There is a Mr NutCase app too for iPad/iPhone but mummy ordered her case via the website.
Excellent quality and fit
Free Fast Delivery
A bit expensive, but mummy's other case was from a £1 shop!
