My favourite thing to do at the moment is just sit quietly and watch Ottilie play. She’s into EVERYTHING, and whizzes round non-stop at top speed finding new things to make messes with!
Favourite games right now include throwing piles of laundry around from one spot to another (always with a very serious look on her face, like she’s got a system going on and is busy sorting things out…), tipping out the contents of my purse and ripping up all the receipts, dancing to music or Mama’s (tuneless) singing, putting things on shelves and then taking them back off again, and shaking the little rattles that came with that red shape sorter bus we bought her for Christmas.
I feel like we’ve reached such a fun stage lately, and every day Ottie seems to be getting more and more interactive. It’s the most exciting thing, watching her little character develop and to see her communicating more and more with me as she grows.
Now, I’m off to install a pack of plug safety covers all over my house…
Over the last few months of motherhood, I’ve realised how important the design, functionality and practicality of the products we use are to helping streamline the sometimes mammoth task that is getting out and about with a baby. And so from now until the end of this year, I’m excited to say that I’ll be working with Graco to test out and share my thoughts on some of their newest products!
We’ll be trying out some of Graco’s range of pushchairs and carseats that’ll grow with Ottilie over the coming months, and were lucky enough to preview a few of the products at the Generation Graco event at Legoland a couple of weekends ago (the photo above is Ottilie testing out the Featherweight stroller, the lightest in the UK!).
I hope the reviews prove useful for any new parents or parents to be who, like us, found the world of travel systems and car seats a total headache to navigate!
Thanks for supporting the sponsored content that makes Cider with Rosie, and thanks to Graco for inviting us to take part in the project!
