Flashback Friday- Cafe Bebe Beginnings

I’ve been having a bit of a nostalgic look back at Cafe Bebe’s Beginnings this week. This post is my 500th!! 500 posts written in just under 2 years time. Not half bad. I went back to my first version of Cafe Bebe to discover which picture I used as the FIRST one of Little Miss on the blog. I was somewhat surprised to see that I didn’t use a picture of Little Miss until 9 June, 2009 in a post about our first review products. I must have been a bit conflicted about using pictures of Little Miss at first. Things have changed!

The first two products we ever reviewed were the Silver Cross Doodle high chair and Silver Cross Halo pushchair. The Halo was the first in a LONG line of pushchairs that I would test and review over the next year. We still have the Halo and I have to say that it really is a lovely pushchair.

Part of why I wanted to review the Silver Cross Doodle was because Little Miss’ nickname is Doodles! How convenient. I really loved this high chair, as did Little Miss. It converts into a table and chair and really allows your child to sit up properly when eating which is crucial, particularly if you’re doing Baby Led Weaning. We only recently loaned the Doodle to our good friend, Mummy Matters, to use with her 7 month old son and he LOVES it! As you can see, Little Miss was quite fond of it as well. We had many a good meal in the Doodle. Little Miss was a few days over 1 year old in these pictures.

This is Little Miss and me with the Silver Cross Halo at Burghley House gardens in June 2009. We got so many comments on the Halo and I felt quite cool pushing it around. Yes, I know, I’m a dork. What can I say?

So these were the first pictures of Little Miss which appeared on Cafe Bebe back in June of 2009 when I was on post number 5 and 6 as opposed to 500! Little Miss has become a proper Little Miss, Cafe Bebe has become a rather decent blog and I’ve become much more than just a Mummy. What a happy development!

So today is Flashback Friday! We celebrate the past and share it with the blogosphere. Take a photo, any photo from your past, tell us the story that accompanies it and pop back to link it up. Or not! Linkys are drawing some STICK these days. I’ve never forced anyone to link up to Flashback Friday but I’ve had a nicely loyal group of about 20 bloggers who’ve wanted to take part in Flashback Friday. If you’re one of those bloggers, link on up and enjoy other Flashbacks. If not, that’s ok too. To each their own in this lovely world of blogging!

    500 posts! Go you Karin! How lovely to look back on the beginnings of your blog like this. Such lovely photos of Little Miss too.

    Linkys have been getting some stick and as I said on Tots it’s each to their own. Flashback Friday is good because you can write about anything at all from the past and it’s great sharing photos. Some of my good blogging friends hate linkys but it won’t stop me joining in with them and they just don’t read my linky posts so it’s fine.

    Congratulations on the 500 posts Karin, your blog is lovely and very inspirational (hope to try the Easter egg dying at some point this weekend but don’t hold your breath!)
    As for the Linky’s I don’t like to participate in too many as I want my blog to reflect my own ideas too. Flashback Friday is just that, it allows me to draw on my past and share memories. It also gives me the chance to look at my old photo albums which I love doing. It’s not themed and so allows each their own interpretation – I love it. Like SAHM says above, each to their own.
