My Daily Routine, Written by Alfie

Hello all mummy's friends, 
I'm Alfie. Mummys son.. 
Well you should know that by now. She talks about me on this blog all the time and she puts enough pictures on Twitter and Instagram of me posing! (I love the camera! :).) 

I've written my daily routine for you all to enjoy, the routine doesn't always go to plan if I don't want to nap or mummy has planned something for us to do. But this is a general routine of mine and mums;  

5-6AM- Wake up& shout at mummy for 10mins until she decides to finally wake up. Recently I've been waking up at 4- she pretends she's tired but she loves the extra time she gets to spend with me, Obviously!!!! Snuggles in bed, while watching the CBeebies advert thing repeating over and over again.. until I decide i want to go down for some Milk then I will shout juice and pull her out of bed! 

6-7AM- Milk, Play and CBeebies.

7-8AM- Play with family before School, University, College and Work. They always end up leaving late but pushing me around in my mini is so much more important. 

8-9AM- Breakfast- sometimes I want abit of everything. I like a choice but then I can't eat it all so it gets chucked in the bin. I'm so fussy.

9-10AM- Head to bed for a nap, this is where the fun starts.. Sometimes I'll just stand in my cot shouting mummy for an hour or chat to monkey about what we are going to do today. I do play up because I know mummy wants a cup of tea and breakfast. If I hear the kettle boiling, I will start shouting! Mummy just waits until I settle down, if she didn't I would just play all day. I hate having a nap!

10-12PM- Have a 2 hour nap, While mummy does housework, showers and gets ready. Sometimes if I hear her get out the shower, I'll wake up so that she doesn't have to time to do her hair and make up! Hehe! I'm so funny!

12-1PM Dinner.. then mummy gets me dressed for the day. She used to get me dressed before dinner but I like to play with my food and my clothes get mucky so after a few months she's finally realised its best to get me dressed afterwards.

(Not a flattering picture at all, cheers mum) 

1-4-30PM Out and about. If mummy doesn't know what to do, we go for a walk to the park which is down the road from our house and walk through the woods. We look for squirrels, watch the quack quacks swim around and then we go on the play area. I do love the swings and the slide and I kick off when it's time to go home! Sometimes mummy takes us to asda or next. She wanders around looking at the clothes and trying silly hats on me. She thinks it's hilarious and I'm just like.. Ok mum, it's embarrassing!

4-30-6PM we then come home for Tea, I don't really like eating meals. I'm fussy so I chuck it all on the floor. I just want yogurts and sweeties. After tea. I will play with my toys, until it's time for my bath. I usually play with my aunties while mummy gets everything ready for my bath. 

6-6-30PM BATHTIME!! My favourite time of the day, I love splashing about, playing with my ducks and trying to drink the bath water. Mummy doesn't like me drinking it, that's why I do it! 

6-30-7PM- Snuggles, then bed. Mummy always baths me earlier than needed so that she can have a cuddle with me before she puts me in my cot. It's more of a wrestling match though because, I don't stay still. I would rather get the toys out my toy box and get the remote and change the channel on the tele. Mummy enjoys CBeebies more than I do, she just pretends she doesn't like it! When mummy has had enough of chasing me round the room, she puts me in my cot, tucks me in, gives me a kiss and tells me she loves me. She puts the monitor on and switches the light off and leaves me to go to sleep. It doesn't take me long to fall asleep after that because I have such a long day playing and I'm knackered. Then I drift off to sleep and dream about the park and what adventures we'll get up to tomorrow! 

Thanks for reading my mummy's blog, love Alfie

Autumn Walks

I never really walked anywhere much when I wasn't a mum. I would just get in and the car and go where I needed to go and come back again. I didn'tappreciate my surroundings but what 19 year old does??! 

This is the first year that me and Alfie have been out for walks in the autumn season, last year I was depressed so I just stayed in all the time and because Alfie was tiny I just wanted him in the warm with me. 

I love going for walks now, Alfie loves being out in the fresh air and taking in the environment. Especially now he's older. He loves walking in the crispy leaves and picking up fallen leaves and pinecones. He would love to jump in muddy puddles like peppa pig but i haven't got round to getting him some Wellington boots yet.

Alfie's favourite things

Alfie is now showing signs of liking and disliking different things and isn't shy on telling you if he doesn't want things.. He will say no, shake his head or chuck it on the floor. 

Food/ drink- 
He has been very fussy with his food lately, he isn't keen on gravy dinner and it always ends up on the floor. He would prefer chips/ onion rings.. With chicken/ fish fingers. His all time favourite food is pasta! He always gobbles it up in record time and doesn't leave any.. Literally none AT ALL! He is also in love with fruit, the favourites in our house are bananas, strawberries, raspberries, grapes and blueberries. He likes tomatoes and cucumber too so I tend to give him a lot of salad with his meals. He has a lot of yogurt too.
He drinks a lot of juice, he loves every flavour really and doesn't really show a preference for a certain juice. 

He hates being sat down for too long as he prefers to be wandering around.. But when he does play he likes his car garage.. And he likes pushing his monkey around in his walker. I think he would love a little pushchair to put his monkey in. 

He LOVES dancing, he dances to any bit of music he can hear. I listen to pop music and 50s/60s. He loves both and gets his boogy on. He's a right little mover! 

He prefers to be active than stay in so I would have to say his favourite activity would be the park. He giggles on the swings and screams 'weeeeeee' on the slide and he loves the open space to run around in. We go to the park about 3 times a week, it won't be that much anymore as the colder weather is now coming. I want to get him some wellies, he would love jumping up and down in puddles!! :) 

Tv programme- 
He doesn't sit still long enough to watch a whole show but he does like Peppa pig, Fireman Sam, Noddy, in the night garden and Mister Maker. 

Favourite time of the day- 
He likes meal times as he loves his food! Little chunk.  

Favourite animal- 
He's learnt how to say cat and we do have millions of cats that live surrounding us. They're taking over our estate! No word of a lie! Haha. He stands at the patio waiting for next doors cat to come in the garden and gets so very excited when he does. He loves watching the bird table from the patio door too. 

His favourite things change on a regular basis, but he's a toddler and they're fussy little things. His favourite food will probably change next week and he'll probably never play with his car garage again. That's toddlers for you!

Does your little one have any favourites like Alfie? :)

It's October!! 

Lovely walks among the crispy leaves
A chill in the air
Picking conkers and pinecones 
Snuggles on the sofa 
Hot drinks to warm us up 
Scarves and coats 

The year has gone so quick but I'm looking forward to all of those things!
