It’s Baby’s First Christmas…


Baby's First Christmas MrsShilts

In just 46 short days, it will be our Baby’s First Christmas day. For us though and like many others, Christmas isn’t just for one day. It officially starts with a big Shilton family meal in early December and lasts right up until New Years Eve. It’s the build up, the anticipation and the excitement of spending quality time with family and friends having fun, being with the ones you love and of course, the giving and receiving of lovely cards and gifts.

Now the Christmas television adverts are rolling out on our screens and the shops are full of gifts, cards and decorations, I’m really excited to begin the Baby’s First Christmas series on the blog which will run for the next 6 weeks. I’ve been working hard over the last couple of months to bring to you a selection of Baby’s First Christmas features that I’m really hoping you’ll enjoy.

What’s coming up?

Crafts – making Baby’s first Christmas cards, annual photograph postcards and decorations

Interviews – find out how my friends will be spending their first Christmas with their little one’s, what traditions they’ll be starting and do they still believe in Santa?

Toy Reviews – what do you buy a baby who is celebrating their first Christmas?

Giveaways – I’ve got some brilliant giveaways lined up for you ideal for your Baby’s First Christmas so I hope you’ll enter. Good luck!

Keepsakes – how I’ll be remembering Little Mr’s first Christmas

Days Out – it wouldn’t be Christmas without a trip to see Santa in his Grotto would it?

Outfits – I’ll be showing off various different outfits that I’ve bought for Little Mr to dress up in, it’s the law isn’t it? 

I really hope you’ll enjoy the series and watch out for ideas for your Baby’s First Christmas on my pinterest board, which you can see here..
