Evelyn is 4!

This post is a little delayed as we have been on holiday but last Saturday (9th June) Evelyn turned 4!

I can't quite believe it, my tiny baby turning 4 and starting school this year, time just seems to be whizzing by so quickly and she has become such a little character. This year seems like such a big milestone birthday because its the year she will start school and whilst she has definitely grown up so much this last year she is still my little baby inside.

Hatch Friends Forever with Hatchimals Series 3 CollEGGtibles **REVIEW**

Most of you will remember when the Hatchimals craze started at Christmas 2016 when the huge hatchimals surprise eggs were being swept off the shelves as soon as they were put out. But that's not the only Hatcimal product around, there is also a huge range of smaller Hatchimals ready to be discovered each inside their very own miniature egg.

Hatchimals CollEGGtibles are now onto series 3 with more cute and quirky characters to collect. This series the eggs are yellow with a variety of coloured speckles on the eggs. The colour of the speckles on the egg determines where in Hatchtopia your new CollEGGtible creature lives, but you won't know which Hatchimal you have until you hatch it.

Ravensburger FIFA World Cup Puzzle Balls **REVIEW**

Whilst James has always enjoyed having a football to kick around the garden this has been the first year he has really shown an proper interest in the Fifa World Cup Football (much to the excitement of his football mad dad!). So when he recently received some new World Cup themed puzzles he was keen to get started!

Life with a large family! **GUEST POST**

Having a large family was not really in my life plan, which I had so perfectly mapped out in my early twenties.  I was convinced that I would have two children and that would be that.  As I was one of two girls and everyone in my family seemed to have girls I was also convinced that I too would have two little girls.  After some fertility issues I was blessed with two lovely little boys who kept me very busy and who I just adored.  I loved being a boy mummy, but I still had the feeling that I wasn’t quite done with the baby thing.  I still looked at pregnant women and those with a newborn and felt a pang of ‘I wish that was me’. So, when my husband started talking as if we might have another I was more than convinced that this was the right move for us.  We decided to try again and as with the first two times one month of clomid and I was pregnant.  There was a surprise to come though as this was not one baby, but two.  We officially joined the large family club in 2015 when our beautiful twin girls arrived.

Birthday Gift Idea's for 4 Year Olds!

I can hardly believe that Evelyn is about to turn 4! It feels like I blink and she is growing up and another birthday is just around the corner. With that in mind I have been browsing online and hitting the shops recently trying to find presents for the birthday girl. I found so many great things I thought I would share them here to give you some idea's for any upcoming birthday's you may have to buy for.

Swimways SquiDivers **REVIEW**

Both James and Evelyn love the water and being confident in the water is something we have always wanted them both to be. We didn't want them to be worried about getting splashed or going under the water so we have been swimming at least once a week ever since they were both babies. 

We found the best way to get them both confident in the water was through play, games and water toys which meant they were having so much fun they became happy and care free in the water. James is 8 and Evelyn almost 4 and both are happy and confident in the water and happy to dive under too. So when we were offered the chance to try out these funky new SquiDivers water toys from Swimways I knew I would have two very willing volunteers!

Intex - Shooting Hoops Inflatable Basketball Set **REVIEW**

With summer well and truly on its way and the temperatures definitely rising both the kids have been desperate to get out in the garden at any given opportunity. So this year I set about finding some new garden toys and games for them to play with that would keep them both entertained this summer.

We don't have a massive garden and so as much as we would love a giant trampoline we just don't have the space. So I had to get inventive when it comes to ideas, we needed things that were lots of fun but didn't take up too much space or could be packed away when needed. The Intex shooting hoops basketball set seemed to tick all those boxes so we were thrilled when we received one to try out!
