Baby Milestones
Some of the best baby milestones are the ones that cannot be 'captured'. They are yours and yours alone!
#babies   #babydevelopment   #milestones  
Not all baby milestones can be measured. Not all baby milestones can be shared. Some are are just moments that will stay with you until the day you die!

•Dried Flower Art*
How about this cute little fella? It would make a fab gift for #mothersday   or #FathersDAy

No more waiting weeks for your flowers to dry under weighted books. This little bird only took a few hours to make using a microwave oven flower press.

I love these medium sized dolls for kids to play with. So much nice than the droves of Barbies that get given as presents and never get played with!
 
I just love this #DesignAFriend Doll my girls were sent to review. It's a great size to play with, you can buy lost of accessories and outfits, it's well made oh and not overly sexualised!
