Archie: 17 Months Old.

Archie is now weighing 23lbs 12oz. He doesn’t seem to be putting on that much weight at the moment even though he is eating me out of house and home. He is so so active and on the go all the time I think he burns off everything he eats.

Archie is still in size 12-18 month clothing although he has just moved up to 18-24 month PJs as his footed ones were getting a bit tight. I took Archie to Clarkes a couple of weeks ago to get his feet measured and he is now a massive size 5.5E. He has got such big feet and they just seem to be getting bigger and bigger everyday. He has a new pair of Clarkes shoes I managed to bag in the sale but I don’t think they are going to last him very long at all the rate his feet are growing.

Every day Archie is saying more and more words, I cant even count how many he can say anymore as I have just lost count. It must be around 50. He has FINALLY started sprouting some hair although it is very blonde and teeth are popping up from nowhere including them pesky molars.

This month we have had a fairly busy month. We have visited Callum’s Auntie and Uncle in Bristol, Callum’s parents have been to visit and I’ve been in hospital. Callum is still working away this month every weekend in Cardiff so we have been trying to make the most of the evenings together.

We have started to have some warmer weather in Bournemouth this month so we have been making the most of spending days outside. Archie absolutely loves his paddling pool in the garden, he runs towards it and belly flops into the water.

If any of you follow me on Instagram and Twitter you would notice that we have been viewing houses and flats recently. Trying to buy a property in Bournemouth is near on impossible at the moment. Everything is either too expensive or there are no properties being built. At the moment it feels like were at a dead end but I’m hoping next month we will be able to say we have found somewhere.

We took a trip to Honeybrook farm recently with my sister and her friend Stacy. Archie absolutely loves it here (even if he did fall face first in pig poo). There is a massive grass area where Archie can have a run around, picnic benches , a splash area, park and obviously all the farm animals. We have come here a few times this summer already. It is definitely a place to visit to wear the kids out.


Sorry it is such a short post this month. Things have been a bit rubbish with me being poorly and house hunting. Feeling rather deflated at the moment.

Love Tilly and Archie xx
