Amelia’s first dressing gown

So it’s not exactly a dress per se,but it’s is a gown in itself!
Amelia’s first dressing gown arrived today,from the Little White Company and I love it!
Pink Floral,I think they may be out of stock,but have similar.

Mondays Child is wearing ….

Today’s dress is from one of my favourite brands “Little Bird” by Jools Oliver (Jamie Oliver’s wife),she designs this brand exclusively for Mothercare. I love her range of clothes and bedding,I’d describe it as 70’s old school,it’s really nostalgic!
Her range in the UK is from newborn to 6-7 years. Unfortunately in Ireland I have only seen newborn clothes from the range,but you could always again,use parcelmotel

Amelia’s 1st Birthday

With Amelia’s first birthday fast approaching I’m busy trying to organise her birthday party (I cannot believe she is almost 1), and deciding on her birthday gifts.
We were keen to get her a traditional rocking horse, something that would last and could be passed down through the family, however after much thought, we decided to wait another few years, as she could end up hurting herself on the one we had in mind.
I think we have made a decision and have gone with a traditional wooden pram and a soft rocking horse from Mamas and Papas.
Her Uncle is kindly getting her a rocking chair from ikea and her godmother/Auntie has got her a beautiful floral Tepee Tent.
Thanks to Kerry at www.ohsoamelia.com for the idea for the tepee tent!

A diary to my daughter

20140302-182434.jpg

When I was pregnant, I wrote in a pregnancy journal every week and included a picture of my ever expanding belly. I wrote how I was feeling physically and emotionally as the pregnancy progressed. my plan is to give this to Amelia when she is older or maybe wait until she is pregnant with her first baby.i really enjoyed writing it.
Not sure what I would have done had she been a boy, maybe give to your son’s wife?
Now she is 11 months and I find I have very little free time, so I have started writing in this diary (pictured). its perfect, it is approx 7 pages per year, from birth to 18 years.I fill I our likes, dislikes, our fun days out, my wishes and dreams for her, illness and how she is developing.I will give her this for her 18th birthday.
I bought on amazon,for £13.99, I can highly recommend it.

Sunday Zara Navy Ditsy Floral Dress

image

Today Amelia wore a pretty navy floral dress from Zara’s Winter 2013 collection.It has lovely turn up sleeves,that can be left down,and a leather thin belt.

Zara’s sizes tend to be on the smaller side,so this is one size bigger (12-18 mths).tje neck is a little too big still.

I teamed the dress with red H&M tights and a navy clip.

The girl with a million dresses…….

When I found out I was pregnant, there are no words to describe how happy I was, then to add icing on the cake, I found out I was having a little at 20 weeks!The love and obsession for buying this little girl Amelia Rose dresses started there and then.I always think little girls look beautiful in dresses, and with some exception my little girl is in a dress everyday.
When she was about four months old, a friend and work colleague commented on a picture I had posted on Facebook “The girl with a million dresses”, and so the idea to blog was born.
It has taken me quite a while to get to it, and I will post some old pictures of the last 11 months.My favourite shops for Amelia’s dresses are generally, Zara,Jooles Oliver “Little Bird” range for Mothercare,John Lewis,Sarah Louise and DP.
