Wishing Izebella would walk

Published January 13, 2014 by Bizzimummy

Izebella is 15 months now and will not walk

20140113-115328.jpg
She has been walking around furniture and pulling up since about 10/11 months and was crawling at 9 months.
Okay I know every baby is different and do different things and she will do it when she is ready blah blah blah. It doesn’t make me feel better hearing that tho.
If I hold her hands she will attempt to walk and can go quite far but she still seems clumsy and off balance which makes me worry more.
My brothers baby was born two weeks after her and started walking at 10 months which really gets to me even tho it shouldn’t.
I hear mums say mine was walking at 9 months etc and wonder why Izebella won’t. I wonder if I have done enough to encourage her and even worry there may be something wrong and she may never walk.
As for everything else she seems fine. She’s fairly clever and sneaky and knows how to get what she wants. She can say quite a few words and even put words together. She understands much more and will happily get something if asked such as a cup, nappy, toy etc. She also knows names of a few characters such as Peppa pig.
It’s just the whole walking thing I worry over.
Jordanna walked at 14 months and Ryan didn’t walk until 17 months so I should be used to late walkers. I just wish she would do it soon.

Robot Slayer review & Competition

Published January 13, 2014 by Bizzimummy

Robot Slayer is the idea of Vincent Kamp. It is available as a book and app.
The idea of robotslayer is actually a story that Vince would tell his 3 year old son Leo.

The book is set in comic style with very colourful and illustrative graphics. Many of the book characters are actually based on Vince’s family too. Leo is the robotslayer. Vince is a renegade robot. Vince’s other son Benny is Leo’s robot friend in the story and Vince’s dad also appears as Prof Robotolis. (Vince’s dad also happens to be a real life engineer)

The story is set in a place called Robotolis and has many pictures of giant robots.

I would say the book is mainly aimed towards boys but of course no reason why girls can’t read it too. It’s quite an enjoyable story to read with easy speech bubbles like a cartoon or comic and narration text in blue.

There is of course the Robot Slayer app which is available for iPads.

The app has lots of interactive things going on such as sound effects, lasers and explosions plus a cinematic musical score specially composed for robotslayer. There are also a few games too. The app will certainly keep kids quiet for a while.
