Baby boy picks….foxy!?!

So I’m always on the look out for great little outfits for Harvey and whilst browsing the shops and scouring the internet. I can not seem to get away from the overwhelming amount of woodland themed baby clothes, in particular the fox inspired outfits.

I have to admit I’m a slight fan (despite Mr Rustics constant teasing) and I am keen to get Harvey one or two pieces. Lets face it why should he have to miss out on the baby fashion trends when us mummies don’t want to miss out on the latest style staples.

If your keen to get in on the trend here’s a look at some of what’s available on the high street shops at the moment…

Four months later….

Wow doesn’t time fly, I find it hard to believe that Harvey has just passed his four month mile marker, I’m sure the pregnancy didn’t go this quickly! at Harvey’s last weigh in he had grown from a mightly 10lbs 4ozs to a humongous 18lbs.


He now consumes milk at an unbelievable rate (around six feeds of 8ozs a day) and is nearly out of his 3-6 month clothing! Harvey’s weight sits on the 98th percentile and his length was off the scale, the only fitting and simple description is that he’s a ‘Big Boy’.


His daddy, being a rugby player, is immensely proud of his size and is already envisaging his little boy charging around the pitch in a few years time!

So how much have our lives change since our little man came along? The only answer for that is an indescribable amount. Harvey has seen every aspect of our previous life as a couple change. Mr Rustic and I have been together for five years and had only been married for a few months when we found out I was pregnant with Harvey. We were of course over the moon by our news but we were also daunted by the mammoth challenge we were about to face and boy has it been a challenge.


The first four months have both passed in a flash (we can’t believe how quickly he has grown) and at times felt draw out and slow (numerous night feeds, smelly nappies and baby sick). Most of my mummy friends say to me that they can’t remember their life without their little ones, I’ll hold my hands up and say ‘I can!’ but it was only four months ago and my memory is not that bad, maybe in another six months time I’ll have forgotten what life was like pre baby….I’ll let you know!
