Tweeting can be so rewarding.

This week we were lucky enough to win a twitter competition run by @BooriUrbane. BooriUrbane is a company that manufacture modern, beautiful nursery furniture.

The competition couldn't have been easier to enter. We see these kind of competitions run everyday on twitter, simply RT a tweet to enter. We didn't think we would hear anything else until we received a tweet telling us we had one.

Anyone who knows me *K* will know I have a huge passion for books. So this prize was possibly one of the best prizes for our lil family.

A gift card to spend in Waterstones, a shop I spend most of my time in. Straight away we began discussing which books we wanted our lil monkey to have on their shelves before they even entered the world.

We decided we would each choose two books as the gift card was very generous and stretched to this. My first choice was a book that I've always loved and had been contemplating buying for Monkey a few weeks.

My second choice was a book that holds strong memories from my childhood. It was a toss up between this and Each Peach Pear Plum. I simply love the illustrations and flow of the words.

Clara went straight for the Very Hungry Caterpillar, we decided to go for a small buggy book from the range to allow us to give monkey some literature on the move.

Her second choice was a book we had both looked at previously. We have been reading a lot recently about babies being unable to recognise colourful shapes too well. Research has shown that babies can start to recognise pictures in black and white contrast. So we went for a book that they possibly would be able to start looking at straight away.

Massive thanks go to Boori, who have helped us start our babies library.

Get RTing fellow tweeters, you never know when your next tweet will be a lucky one.
