Top rompers: Sonny Jim in his whimsical Twerpy Threads outfit
My little man is a brand enthusiast for the fabulous Nevada-based children’s range, Twerpy Threads… which means you can bag 20 per cent off EVERYTHING with our discount code, SONNY20.
We utterly adore this whimsical romper, which you can order in different sleeve lengths AND with short or long legs. We went for the tank version so Sonny Jim can wear it with different long-sleeve vests underneath through winter – but also rock it on its own come summer.
Made from 100 per cent organic cotton, all fabrics are prewashed/preshrunk before sewing begins — so they wash up lovely. And every item is handmade to order, by Twerpy Threads’ Ashley, who set up the brand after making outfits for her little lad, Merrick.

The last of this frozen food (kindly added to by my family in those first sleep-deprived-is-it-night-who-am-I days) was eaten this week.
And though Sonny Jim is sleeping much better these days, there just isn’t the time for cooking a lot of the dishes I used to.
Which is why Cook is now one of my new favourite things. Continue reading
