What we love this month – September

September has been quite a busy month for us so far. We’ve had a birthday to celebrate, new foods to try and a little bit of Christmas preparation (Yes, I know it’s a bit early!). We’re fast approaching October now, and the weather is starting to feel decidedly chilly. I’m tempted to put the heating on, but it still feels way too early for that, so for now, we’re just embracing the layers and digging out our cosy autumn clothes from the back of the wardrobe.

Here are our loves for September:

Fleecy onesies

During the summer my friend gave me some gorgeous fleecy onesies that her son had grown out of. I wasn’t sure if we’d get to use them with Cupar growing so fast, but the colder weather lately has meant that we finally got to try them out. They fit Cupar perfectly, and they’re so cute and cuddly. We got 2 blue ones, and a grey one, and they’re amazing for the changeable September weather.

They’re by Lupilu, which I already think is a great clothing range, and they’re just what we needed. They have a warm fleecy layer on the inside which means Cupar stays toasty when we’re out, and they even have a little hood for when it gets a bit windy outside.


Cupar’s bedtime routine seems to be staying consistent this month which I’m really pleased about. I’m not sure if it’s because he’s getting older, or because the evenings are getting darker, but he’s been sticking to the same sort of bedtime every night. It’s great because he doesn’t get overtired, he sleeps in his own room and I get an hour or two to myself in the evenings.

Birthday cake

We celebrated my Mum’s birthday this month and lucky Cupar got to have a bit of birthday cake all to himself. He’s tried cake before, but he’s never had his own slice, and he certainly made the most of it! He decided to eat all the icing first because that’s obviously the best bit and then tried his best at the sponge before leaving the soggy, chewed remnants on the plate. He doesn’t usually have much sweet stuff, so it was nice for him to have a little treat.

Christmas magazines

The Christmas magazines have hit the shops and I’ve treated myself to one already. I’m not sure why they’re out so early, because it is only September, but I’m definitely not complaining. I’ve already started planning the stocking fillers and Christmas food, and I’m getting loads of inspiration for the tree and other decorations. I usually end up with about 5 Christmas magazines every year because I get so excited, and this year will be no exception.


Aeron takes Cupar to the park every day while I’m at work, and they’ve been getting to know the local dogs and owners. Cupar has always been facsinated by dogs, and animals in general, and always gets excited when he sees one. Now that he’s walking, he’s been interacting with them a bit more and loves to chase them round the park. We’ve considered getting a dog of our own, but with a house full of pets already, we just don’t have the space!

Little trolleys

We discovered fun size trolleys this month in our local Lidls, and they’re the best thing I’ve seen in ages.

Shopping has been a bit of a nightmare lately because Cupar has decided he doesn’t like to sit in the trolley anymore. He’d much rather walk or be carried, which is fine, but when you’re trying to carry a heavy toddler, push the trolley and get the shopping in there, it can get a little bit crazy.

The fun size trolleys are basically a much smaller version of a proper trolley. They’re the perfect height for Cupar to push, and they even come with a parent handle so you can control where they go. They’ve made shopping so much easier, and the only problem we’ve had is that we end up with some very random items that Cupar has managed to sneak in! He really likes pasta, so we always end up with a few bags of that in amongst the other things he’s picked up.

I’m looking forward to next months ‘what we love’, which should be full of Halloween goodies, autumn style, and more Christmas preparation!

  1. Oh if you love a Christmas magazine, you should head to the Works. They had the most beautiful Christmas book for £3. I can’t think what it was called but I am kicking myself for not getting it.

    I might have to buy myself a magazine instead.

    I hope October is as good a month for you all x

  2. Loving the pic of Cupar eating his cake – super cute! You’ve encouraged me to hunt down some of these Christmas mags, they sound right up my street so thank you so much for talking about them.

    1. Mines literally just called ‘Christmas’ lol, I love it. It’s full of food, decorations and gift ideas. What could be better!
