Sharing the Blog Love – Showcase 2

Permalink

Welcome to the very first #SharingtheBlogLove Blogger Showcase! We were so pleased to have so many wonderful posts linked up for us to choose from – it made the selection process really difficult. But Laura and I have each managed to choose our 4 favourites and we really hope that you’ll enjoy reading them.

 

Little Hearts Big Love

My first featured post was our very first linkup, and really set the standard! Louise is one of the most friendly bloggers out there, so you almost certainly know of her, but if you don’t then this post is a great place to start. In In Pursuit of a Miracle, she shares her experience of finding out what no-one wants to hear at the 20 week scan – that her little girl had a heart defect that meant she was unlikely to survive. But Louise and Jessica’s story is a such an inspiring tale of what modern medicine can do, about hoping and believing in something against all odds. Louise’s description of the in-utero surgery makes me marvel at the precision that can be achieved our surgeons, and I’m sure that reading it and looking at Jessica now must be so inspiring for anyone going through something similar.

 

Sparkles and Stretchmarks

I’m always hearing news stories about how modern parents are glued to their phones all the time, ignoring their kids, and it’s given me endless guilt whenever I pick up my phone. I loved Hayley’s post, Connection, which acknowledges that phones are simply a tool of modern parenting. Of course we’re all looking to get that perfect balance, but this post helped to alleviate some of my guilt and feelings of judgement a little bit!

 

Chocolate and Wine and I’ll Be Fine

Sam’s blog was a new one to me, and I’m so pleased to have found it through this linky! I love museums, and have been wondering whether my two year old is quite ready for them yet. But Sam’s post on Museums in London for Toddlers made me realise that so many museums these days really make an effort for younger children. It’s inspired me to try and give a trip into London a go – I just need to decide which one we’re going to go for!

 

Quite Frankly She Said

There’s something magical about a poppy field, isn’t there? I blame The Wizard of Oz! I’m seeing them all over my Instagram right now and wondering if there’s one near me that I can drag Max to and force him to pose among the flowers. I adored the photos of Sian’s two boys in her Polarn O. Pyret post – colourful, slightly whimiscal, and everything childhood should be about! I’m a big fan of Polarn O. Pyret clothes too – not the cheapest out there, but fantastic quality.

 

Do head over to these lovely blogs and give them a read and a comment!
