The Kiddies // Fifteen

Written by InnocentCharmsChats. Posted in 2013

Hello Spring!

I am so glad to finally see some clear skies and it not always being dreary.

We are huge picnic fans in our house, once the weather is dry we are happy to picnic every day, all the kids are becoming the same way and you can’t understand how happy that makes me.

So this week all the pictures come from a picnic we took on Sunday, we of course took it at a park because who doesn’t love going on a swing.

Grayson - You have been pushed beyond your comfort zone this week and have excelled. You have enjoyed our many trips to different parks, looking and walking miles and miles.

It has been lovely to see you smiling.

Addison - Oh my sweet Addison, I love spending every day with you, three-nager moods and all. You say the cutest things, I am forever your best friend and the love you have showered me with this week I never want to stop.

You are so excited that Blossom trees are every where you turn, you scream in excitement “Mummy my name is Blossom”. So it was perfect that we had our picnic Sunday under a Blossom tree.

Deacon the adventurer

Deacon - My little adventurer, you are growing every day. You have learnt to explore, your little legs carrying you as fast as you can. Climbing play equipment meant for a child double your size, running as quickly as you can from me so that you can explore somewhere you shouldn’t.

If only we could get you to sleep, you would be becoming perfect.

It has been far to long since I featured Addison’s outfits on the blog, I have no excuse she has been wearing some awesome clothes, if you follow me on Instagram (if you don’t please come rectify that) you would have seen many as she features in my children’s fashionwear link up #styleitkids most days, so today I am finally sharing a beautiful new purchase.

I love the dress so much, it is my second POPUPSHOP purchase and I am super impressed with the quality from both, but to be honest that is not surprising as Jenny of Kyna Boutique makes sure she only stocks quality.

Review | Cheeky Chompers Neckerchews

Written by InnocentCharmsChats. Posted in 2013

When I met Amy and Julie the founders of Cheeky Chompers last year I was inspired by how much they had achieved in a short period of time. I spoke to them of buying a Neckerchew years before at the Baby Show, I explained how Grayson had worn it every week since due to his extreme mouthing/chewing but now even though very tiny it was becoming to tight.

They listened, we chatted and they went away and saw a way to help children and adults like Grayson with disabilities.

I was astounded when they contacted me last month and said the new Neckerchews in sizes for special needs children and adults were just about to be released, not only did they kindly want to send Grayson some to put to the test, not only did they want to send some for Grayson’s best friend at school to also test but they wanted Grayson to be the face of the new Neckerchew.

We of course we accepted, how could we not, we were 99% sure the new Neckerchews would be a win, I mean the old one over 2 years on is now around Deacon’s neck and working a treat with his back molars, even though Grayson had chewed it week after week.

special needs dribble bibs

The new Neckerchews come in 2 sizes, children/small adult and adult, I am so pleased as we know Grayson’s excessive chewing will always be something he does and of course with that comes a certain amount of drool. Also available in 7 different designs and colours I am truly thankful they stuck to classic colours and patterns, so many special needs products end up being in garish colours and designs meant for a small child, not someone of 6 or older. Although Grayson mentally is still a baby he on the outside is growing and so wearing lions round his neck just doesn’t work.

special needs bibs

As with all their products Cheeky Chompers do not scrimp on quality of product, everything is made in Glasgow, so UK made.

Each Neckerchew is 3 layers thick of the softest cotton, so nice against sensitive skin and come with 2 adjustable poppers, which are smooth, this is crucial for babies but also for children with sensory issues. I love the fact that each bib is also reversible, so 2 designs for outfit matching.

Grayson has really been putting them to the test this past fortnight, chewing/tugging for hours, eating Wotsits in them and thankfully with the help of Vanish gold they are as good as new and the colours have not faded. He goes through 2 bibs a day which is fantastic and means his clothes are not getting ruined and I don’t have to constantly watch whether he has a toy to nibble and not his fingers.

Grayson although a terrible mouther is not a massive drooler, so I wanted to make sure that the bibs could handle that. Teagan has been Grayson’s best friend since they were 18 months old, like Grayson she likes to chew but she also heavily drools due to her disabilities. The doctors have tried many things to control her drooling but with no success, so dribble bibs that work are crucial, Teagan currently goes through at least 4 a day as they would soak through, Emma her Mum contacted me last night thanking me for the bibs as she just can’t believe how absorbent they are. She said she has halved the amount of times she has changed her bib and loves the larger size.

The special needs community are truly thankful to Cheeky Chompers, I have spoken in forums of the bibs release and many did use the original Neckerchews but like us they had just become to small, they were all eagerly awaiting the release and we feel so pleased that Amy and Julie designed a product to make our lives and that of our superheroes so much easier.

Do check out Cheeky Chompers, if you have a special needs child or in fact a little baby who has started the awful teething process, they are hands down the best dribble bibs on the market!!!

Thanks to Cheeky Chompers for asking Grayson to be the face of the new Neckerchew, we loved having a little photo shoot and hope the pictures sell how much we love the bibs.

Grayson and popsy

Grayson - Even though unwell you have been so much pleasure this week, doing incredible for a photo shoot (more to come) and making sure you had great cuddles with Popsy on his birthday.

You of course have been loving all the extra chocolate from Easter.

Addison and Deacon

Addison - I only wish this picture you were both not so dis-shelved as this never happens, you try to have patience with your brother but you are just so different, although these past weeks you are slightly better with one another.

You are more sulky than ever this past week but I know most of it stems from boredom, you always want to be out enjoying new experiences.

Deacon - Oh little boy, I just pray there comes a day where you are that much easier, like your sister you are always looking for adventure. Funny in some ways you are both so similar.

You to have been poorly this week but thankfully are now well enough to enjoy your 2nd Easter.

As always I am linking up with Living Arrows and feeling inspired by such talent.
