Max was born in January 2016 so he’s at a really good age for all of his Christmas firsts! We went Christmas shopping today for the first time and it was literally the cutest little day out. I’ve only just felt comfortable enough to take him for food and other things just us two as it’s something that makes me really nervous for some reason! I’m getting used to it now and I love spending the day with just him.
I’d filmed today and intended on making my first YouTube video but I’m still really scared about doing it! So here’s a cute picture of Max eating his hat instead.
So my child is officially some kind of savage and is going through the ‘I must climb/break/eat/destroy everything’ phase. I have got an amazing Christmas tree that my Nan kindly gave to me last year but unfortunately have no where I can put it this year where Max can’t reach it! So instead I’ve bought this cute little tree from The Range for £14.99 – bonus! It only took about 5 minutes to decorate 😂
It’s Max’s first Christmas so it’s a special one! He loved getting the decorations out of the box, turns out he’s a big fan of tinsel.
So I went to the hairdressers Wednesday expecting to get a perm.. It’s something I’d wanted for a really long time and I’d decided I was just going to go for it and be brave. When I got there the hairdresser showed me the test strand he’d done and oh my god it was AWFUL. I’d bleached my hair about a year before so half of my head was virgin hair and the other half was processed. The virgin hair had curled beautifully, was shiny and healthy looking but the processed part basically looked as though it had been fried. It was just a frizzy, damaged mess. So obviously I changed my mind pretty quickly!
I decided to just get my hair cut, I wanted all of the split ends cut off. I hadn’t really had it cut in about two years so it wasn’t in the best condition. He ended up cutting quite a bit off but I love it! I’ve now joined the fashionable long bob crew like the cool kid I am!

This morning I made fluffy pancakes for me and my little man. He seemed to really enjoy them! Max struggles with choking a bit on finger foods so it was horrible for me but he is getting so much better each day!
These pancakes were really easy to make. You could probably do with adding a teaspoon of baking powder but I didn’t have any and they still turned out fine!
You can adjust this as you need to, it’s just me and Max so I didn’t want to go crazy! This was still more than enough for us both.
Method: heat up a little oil in a frying pan and add as much mixture needed to make what size pancake you’d like (I used a tablespoon of mixture for each of Max’s mini pancakes). Wait until the top of the pancake starts to look bubbly then flip over and cook for a similar amount of time as the first side.
These honestly didn’t take much time at all and Max ate his in the kicthen with me whilst I was cooking mine. You can change the toppings to what you’d like, I had mine with sugar and lemon juice, topped with strawberries and blueberries. Max just had a bit of butter on his and some chopped strawberries and blueberries! 💜
So I’m really trying to get healthy. I’ve been feeling horrendous the last few months and I know it’s because my diet is awful and I’m hardly exercising. Since I’ve had Max I’ve really found it hard to look after myself but it’s got to the point where I’ve had enough of feeling crap. Max is quite fussy with food so I really want to try to get him to eat proper fresh and healthy food, not just the jars of stuff!
This morning was the start of it all! I decided to make us matching smoothie bowls for breakfast. I’ll be honest I didn’t have much hope of them being filling at all but I was so so wrong! I couldn’t even finish mine because I was so full, totally yummy, I’ll definitely be making these a lot.
Our smoothie bowls consisted of: yoghurt (baby yoghurt for Max’s), oats, banana, blackberries, strawberries, raspberries, red currants and blueberries. I topped them both with extra chunks of banana, strawberries and blueberries, and added a few pumpkin seeds to mine. Basically, just chuck it all in and blend until you’re happy with the consistency!
If you haven’t tried making one of these, seriously give it a go. I feel really good after having this for breakfast and look how pretty they are! Max loved his too, he ate pretty much all of it the little beast 👶🏻
