Little Us Doll - Amelia review

Monday, 22 July 2013

Liv was very lucky to be sent a lovely new doll from Little Us.



Her name is Amelia, she is 12 inches tall and comes with a tag attached that says "Im Amelia, I am a little bit shy. I like to read my books and look after my animals especially if they are poorly. When I grow up I am going to look after all the poorly animals and make them all better.

Each of the four dolls in this range have their own personalilty so you can choose the one most like your little one, you can view all four dolls here: 

She is the perfect size for younger girls and reminds me of a rag doll I had as a Child (only far more cool!)



My favourite little touch is the few stitches in her hair either side of her face, this prevents her hair covering her face all the time which really frustrates Liv with other dolls and results in me making Dolls hairbands or using hair clips!

I would definately reccomend this doll to family and friends.


Disclaimer: I was sent this doll for the purpose of the review however all opinions are my own.

Livs teething nightmare - our hospital visit.

Wednesday, 10 July 2013

I honestly had no idea that some Children suffer so badly when teething. Every single time Liv gets a new tooth, her immune system seems to pack a bag and head for the hills leaving my Baby to get a virus/infection.

This time however she has cut four canines all at once, has refused to eat or drink, had a temperature of 38.5 but worst of all her gums are so swollen and red that they keep bleeding and she even had a blood clot/blister type thing. Three trips to the GP's and three diagnoses later (Viral infection, Tonsillitis and a gum infection) the 4th Doctor we saw was quite rightly concerned and sent us directly to Children's ward at the local hospital.

The Doctors there began asking lots of terrifying questions and said depending on the results she may need to stay in, gulp.

6 hours and numerous tests later her blood results showed that she did have an infection and she also had some terrible sores come up on her face.

She was allowed to come home with some antibiotics and cream for her face and fingers crossed she seems to be getting better.

My big strong Girl who is off the chart for a 20 month old in height and wears clothes for a 3 year old, looked so tiny lying in that hospital bed with her poorly bleeding mouth, I would have swapped places with her in a split second.


The worst part of all is she has four more teeth left to cut, the worst ones so I am told, REALLY not looking forward to that.

Liv takes over our "garden"

Saturday, 6 July 2013

7 years ago when we were looking to buy our first house, we didn't mind that the house we loved and could afford only had a small back yard.

Fast forward a Dog and a toddler later I really wish we had a nice garden for them to play in.

We have decided to make the most of the small space we have so after a lot of research Liv has a new play house and sand / water table.


She is an outdoor child at the best of times but I have literally had to carry her in the house while she protests loudly since these new toys arrived.

 
Lets hope we have enough nice weather  for her to get plenty of use out of them!
