Bloggers Babies Be Like …

I’ve been thinking a lot lately about how my blogging affects Jasper. I know now it probably just means that he’s a dab hand in front of the camera and thinks it’s normal for mummy to talk into the lens more than to real life humans … but are there any other implications? When he’s older will he find it weird or annoying? Will he love that he’s been the face of some fab brands or will he feel embarrassed and want me to take the pictures down?

Of course however Jaspy feels about being such a big part … a leading role in fact of Lilypod and Sweetpea; I’ll respect and appreciate but for now; now that he can’t tell me to get the camera out of his face or not to tell the world about his new biting habit … I’ll continue!

Here are a few things I’m sure all babies of bloggers ‘be like’:

The camera loves you

You must be super photogenic because you probably have around 50 photo’s (at least) taken of you on a daily basis. God forbid you do something other than smile, giggle, poop or cry because you’re in for an extra thousand or so shots!


You’ve tried and tested just about every gismo and gadget going

Why did you need that self wiping changing mat or that music playing bobble hat? Why because mummy was sent it and a mummy does not turn down a review opportunity, regardless of how pointless or utterly useless that item may be!


You’ve been whisked off around the country 

A 3 hour train journey and full day at an event …. nope that won’t stop mummy toeing you along to meet mummy bloggers and PR alike!


You have your own hashtag

Well no baby of a blogger would be complete without a series of hashtags after their pictures #babyboy #cutiepie #JaspyAvey


People on the other side of the world fawn over how cute you look and how funny your new crawl is

Yep that’s right, it’s not just Grandma that cooes over your gorgeousness; it’s Molly in Canada, Amy in China and Farrah in New Zealand. You’re a world wide public figure now … get used to it!


Your life is an open book

Sorry to tell you but nothing is sacred for a baby of a blogger. That poop explosion; that temper tantrum … we all know about it … and yes … our eyebrows are raised!


The world and his sister have seen your tooshy

As embarrassed as you may be in years to come; somewhere on the good old interweb is a picture of your tooshy; your snotty nose or your hideous outfit from great Aunt Margaret!


That moment you’re stuck under the sofa and just want to get out … yea just hold it for two seconds while mummy grabs a camera

Every moment is a photo oppertunity for a bloggy muma. No matter how covered in yoghurt you are; or how upset you are to have some annoying reindeer ears on your head … hold that pose, muma needs her picture!


Well there you have it; the like of a bloggy baby. Sorry to say Jaspy I don’t think it’s going to get any better! Keep being cute, I’ll keep blogging it … deal?


What does your baby go through being a baby of a blogger?


Thanks for reading!

      The amount of times I tell Jaspy to stay still so I can take a pic – he’s 8 months and has no clue what I’m talking about lol
