I’m delighted to announce that we’ve recently been chosen to be part of the Bigjigs Play Patrol. Bigjigs is a brand that I have loved and admired for a long time. I always prefer, where possible, to support and buy from brands that have been founded in the UK and have been built on strong ethical roots. Bigjigs was started in 1985 by Peter and Liz Ireland. Peter and Liz are still Directors of the company and have now been joined by…

Wicked Uncle Review – finding the perfect baby gift

A photograph of an eight month old baby playing with some fabulous presents from the Baby section of the toy gift service website Wicked Uncle - including the A to Z Alphabet cloth book and Rabbit in Dungarees Baby Rattle from Ragtales and wearing a Fun Bandana Bib from Zippy - A Wicked Uncle Review finding the perfect baby gift _ Mrs H's favourite things

Back in February the toy gift service Wicked Uncle challenged us to use their website to find the perfect baby gift for Little Mister H. We enthusiastically accepted. Poor Little Mister H doesn’t actually have that many books or toys as they often get commandeered by his older sister. And she isn’t overly happy with him playing with the baby toys that used to be hers either. As a result, I am always excited when I get the opportunity to get…

A letter to my children

A photograph of two children, a little girl and her baby brother, sitting inside a tee pee and smiling adoringly at one another - To my children on mothers day - Mrs H's favourite things

Dear Little Miss and Little Mister H One of my greatest fears is that you will never know how much I love you. That you won’t understand that I feel truly blessed to have you in my life. You and your Daddy are my world. My life. You are my favourite of all my favourite things. Sometimes I am sad, or tired, or grumpy. I might snap at you or raise my voice. I may be doing jobs when you wish I…

Little Mister H at eight months old featuring Sgt. Smith

A photograph of our eight month old baby boy wearing a grey and yellow striped personalised dinosaur babygrow from Sgt. Smith, sitting up, starring at the camera, blowing a raspberry and with a very cheeky face - Little Mister H at eight months old - an update - Mrs H's favourite things - featured image

Our little boy is eight months old. He is growing up too quickly. Months pass in the blink of an eye. And the newborn days seem far behind us. Even at eight months old, Little Mister H seems to be approaching toddlerdom at a rate of knots. I wouldn’t be surprised if he starts walking before he is a year old. But in the meantime I am treasuring every moment with our precious little munchkin. And he is such a joy to be with.…

5 Life Lessons from La La Land

A still from the movie La La Land. This photograph is from a scene of Emma Stone and Ryan Gosling dancing in the musical movie La La Land - In love with La La Land - Mrs H's favourite things

As soon as I saw the trailer for La La Land I knew that I had to see it. So on Tuesday, Little Mister H and I went to a special Mummy and Baby showing . And OMG, I bloody loved it! I don’t think I’m exaggerating when I say that I’m obsessed. Since Tuesday I’ve listened to the soundtrack on repeat. And I’ve even pre-ordered the DVD. I’m not going to bore you by telling you why I fell in love with La La Land. The genius Mark…

My top 5 teething products

A photograph of a gorgeous 6 month old baby boy lying on a pale blue patchwork blanket and wearing a blue and black stripey top My top 5 teething products _ Mrs H's favourite things

Little Mister H has been grouchy all day. He’s been clingy and cried every time I have put him down. There has been a swimming pool full of dribble. He has been chewing everything in sight. And he has had a slight temperature and red cheeks. He is teething. And it sucks. When Little Miss started teething I had no idea what to do. I had read about it in baby books and magazines but nothing prepared me for how…

An open letter to our first baby

A sepia tinted photograph of a young baby's feet and toes - A open letter to our first baby - Mrs H's favourite things

Dear Baby, Today could have been your 4th birthday. Today your Daddy and I could have been singing happy birthday to you. We could have watched you open your presents. Seen you smile as you blew out the candles on your cake. We could have taken you to see the animals at London Zoo. Maybe you would have asked to take one of your new toys with you.…
