What the Kids Wore // Little Rose

January was far milder than I had imagined it would be and we woke up so several times to find the temperature still in double digits.  Knowing that February may change everything, we have spent as much time at the park as we can, going exploring with the little two whilst their brothers are at school and taking the scooters there after collecting them for a quick whiz around before it gets too dark.

A local mum got in touch recently to ask whether I would like a pair of leggings for Cora and I loved them so much that I bought a pair for Finn too.  She hand makes them from a collection of beautiful fabrics and they are perfect for these active explorers.

One of our local parks has a little nature garden and we love spotting the dog statues, looking for frogs and fish in the little pond and studying the boards that tell us about different creepy crawlies and plants we may find as we walk.  On this trip they were so busy playing and discovering that I took a step back and took some (a lot) of photos of them.  Both are wearing their leggings from Little Rose.

What the kids Wore // Reima

One thing we learned very early was that the quality of clothing we buy for our ski holidays makes a big difference.  The temperature drop is quite considerable and we are not used to snow at home.  The bigger boys spend multiple hours a day outside whilst we are there and I want to feel confident that they are warm, dry and comfortable for it.  The children don't need a lot of clothes when we are away as they live in their thermals

We were sent a few items from Reima and the quality is outstanding.  Reima is a Finnish band committed to keeping kids active without letting the weather get in the way.  Their products are designed for an active childhood. Both Cora and Dylan had a set of thermals that were designed to keep their body heat in and they both found them comfy and warm.

  Dylan and Archie already have the fleeces which are the perfect mid layer and they wore them all week.  They are quick drying (they are pretty much dry when they come out the washing machine) and help keep the warmth in without bulking them up.

Archie was also sent a beautiful blue jacket which he wore every day and we both loved.  It was perfect for skiing with a pocket for his lift pass, adjustable cuffs and a detachable hood, but he will be wearing it all winter as it is a warm, well made coat that can accompany him on his everyday adventures.

We will definitely continue to shop with Reima for warm winter wear!

What Cora Wore // Kite from Growing Needs

Cora is finally heading into the next size clothing and it has given me a new reason to shop.  I love buying pretty things for her and I have a few brands that I always go back to.  I recently discovered a new one though, thanks to the lovely Rebecca at Growing Needs.  Kite make organic kids clothing for newborns to eleven years old and their designs are fun, comfortable and bright.

From soft knits to the best designed rompers and an amazing rainbow cardigan, their clothes are brilliant for this mini toddler of mine.

I love babies and toddlers in dungarees and the look like the comfiest thing to wear.  The Kite designs are fun and bright and have poppers for easy changing and they are stretchy enough for all her climbing and squatting.  I can't wait to see what designs they have next season as they will be first on my list to check out.

I can't resist rainbow clothes and this cardigan is amazing! With rainbow stripes on the front and a rainbow on the back, it goes with so much of Cora's wardrobe and it feels thick and warm.  (she loves to carry apples around the house).

 One of my favourite pieces from this collection is their rompers.  I will be honest, I saw them online initially and dismissed them but after holding one in my hands I am sold.  This is thicker than a sleepsuit and perfect for my little girl who feels the cold.  The cuffed legs and arms mean it can be worn even when it is a bit too big and the poppers make changing easy.  The neck is cuffed in the same way as the arms, meaning it slips over their heads easily and can be pulled off downwards if they have an accident.  The whole design is perfect is perfect for busy babies and toddlers and the prints are adorable.

With this windy, wet weather we have spent more time inside than usual and cosy clothes have been a must.  This two part knitted set is so easy to put on and the leggings look warmer than any others she owns.  The leggings are a grey and white stripe and have plenty of growing space on my petite child.

Kite is a lovely brand, the colours and styles, the organic cotton and the fun characters and designs.  I have loved trying it out and I know we will be ordering more in the future.  Growing Needs stocks a great selection as well as lots of our other favourite brands like Smafolk and Albababy.  You can see all these items and more on the Growing Needs website

What the Boys Wore // Nununu

Now that Cora is easier to leave, I have started getting more time with just my big two babies.  I know Dylan loves having time just him and I, Archie is very much lost without his brother and if I suggest we do something just us, he asks whether Dylan can come too.  We have been going on a few little adventures and it is so nice not having a pushchair or a toddler to chase after and being able to enjoy their company.  Last weekend we visited a local theme park and the boys wore their new trousers from Nununu.


Archie much prefers leggings when given the choice and I chose these skull print ones for him as I knew he would love them.  They look comfy and they are definitely his new favourites.  The print and style of these is great for slightly older children and I think they look great on him at nearly 5.  Dylan's trousers are more of a harem jogger with slim legs.  They look comfy and stylish and match with so much (including his Nununu top).


Margate is covered in bright graffiti, the perfect place for getting some 'cool' shots if these two didn't decide to poke their tongue out in pretty much every one! I think these clothes really match their personalities well and I love how stylish and fun the Nununu collection is from ninja hoodies (which Archie would LOVE) to statement shapes and classic black, grey and pink shades.  I have found the sizing pretty true and both children are wearing the right size for their age here. 


I am really enjoying these days out with my big boys, doing all the things that they miss out on  normally because of the little ones and exploring new places.  We have more adventures planned in the lead up to Christmas and I am hoping to make it a regular thing having a Mummy day with my big pair.

Our Ordinary Adventures

Mondays and Thursdays we go to playgroups, Wednesdays and Fridays Finn has nursery in the afternoon.  We have one day left, one completely free day - no commitments, no interruptions, just a day for our ordinary adventures.  We don't always go far, we don't always go anywhere but I love our Tuesdays, just the little two and I.

When we are out at groups or round friends, their relationship is different, but when it is just the three of us, these two couldn't be closer.  Cora looks up to her big brother and Finn loves having a ready made friend in his little sister.  They are as thick as theives and seem to communicate in their own special language.

This week we went to a private local park that we have passes for.  These two are happiest outdoors and they were in their element with things to climb and balance on.  We had the place to ourselves and we were wrapped up warm.  There were sticks to find, leaves to throw, benches to jump off and fish to look for.

We reviewed some wellies from Bogs last year and were so impressed that when Cora started walking I bought her a pair.  They have flexible soles, pull on handles, warm soft insides that keep little feet insulated down to -10 degrees and are machine washable.  We were sent another pair for Finn last month and we both love them.  Cora's are bright pink and orange with flowers and Finn's are black with red and blue dinosaurs.

I tried to keep my camera away for most of the day, to roll down the hills with them, to catch them as they jumped off the bench for the umpteenth time and spin them round in circles, to lift them so they could reach the higher branches and the colourful leaves.  I try to spend these days having ordinary adventures, enjoying them just as they are now.

Cora decided that she was very attached to her water bottle this week and it took a lot of persuasion and distraction to encourage her to eventually put it down.  She is equally as attached to her Bogs boots, bringing them to me and trying to put them on herself if I make no signs of immediately taking her out.  With children that want to be outdoors all the time we definitely have to make sure we are dressed right and these boots will be accompanying us on lots of our everyday adventures over the winter.

These Two

These two, only 16 months apart, are much like a double act.  Where one goes, the other follows.  I worried about having them so close together as Finn's first year was far from trouble free and at 16 months he was still very much a baby.  Until she arrived he was still cuddled to sleep curled up in my arms, carried around the house as he wasn't yet walking and treated in most ways like a baby.  Cora came along and changed everything, yet he never got jealous.  He loved her from the beginning and as she has become more able and more mobile their relationship has grown and changed.

They squabble, he pushes her and she bites him, but most of the time, they can be found together.  They sit and play so well, he tries to teach her colours and show her how to do things properly.  They cook meals together at their play kitchen, stack bobbins in their bedroom and take it in turns to push each other round in the Little Tikes car in the garden.  If things go quiet then you can usually find them in the bathroom, Finn squeezing toothpaste everywhere whilst Cora dutifully holds the toothbrush in place.

When we go out, just the three of us, Finn wants her to chase him and she does it giggling as she goes.  He tries to hold her hand to help her walk  and most of the time she won't let him but when she does, he is full of smiles.


These two are so much fun to watch and I think those 16 months will only shrink from now on as Cora tries to catch up with her brothers.

These two were sent these gorgeous outfits from JoJo Maman Bebe and I just love the co-ordination.  The dress is made of the softest cord and the trousers look so comfy and are soft and lined.  The stripy tops are going to be Autumn/Winter staples as they go with everything too.  Cora is in 12-18 and Finn is in 2-3 and both have a lot of growing room (but both are quite petite for their ages).
