As someone who likes to make a lot of Harry’s food from scratch myself I try to be wary of the snacks I buy for him. Like any parent, I want to give my child the healthiest foods possible but I also want quick and easy cheat foods that I can pop in my bag and take with us with no fuss or preparation.
Lovely Mummy Nicola from http://mummytodex.com has been doing baby led weaning for two months now. Here she shares their baby led weaning journey so far:
I’ve been tagged by Jacqueline at lifeloveandchaos to answer some questions about this year and my hopes for 2017. Continue reading “The (not big or fat) quiz of the year”
I’m currently sat at home, exhausted, having a quick cup of tea whilst Harry naps. I have washing I need to sort out, dinner to prepare and work that needs doing – it can all wait.
When we moved into our house the first thing we said that we wanted to change was our kitchen. It was very dated and although functional it didn’t look the way we wanted it to and the layout wasn’t working as well as we wanted it to. Once we found out that I was pregnant with Harry all dreams of a new kitchen were put aside for a while as our money went on decorating his bedroom and buying all of the baby essentials that he would need.
Bonfire night has always been one of my favourite nights of the year. I love wrapping up warm to go outside in the cold and watch the beautiful colours in the sky with the people I love. Bonfire nights used to be about spending time with friends, having a few drinks and lots of laughs at a local bonfire. Times have changed and the years of drinking in a field are long gone but we were lucky to be invited round to a friend’s house to watch the fireworks with them last night. I was worried how Harry would react to the fireworks but it turns out he takes after his mummy. He loved them!! He was clapping and pointing excitedly as each firework went off. He had such a wonderful time and enjoyed playing with the other children, chasing the tortoises and being spoiled rotten by all of the adults. We got home at about 8pm, which is late for Harry and I was worried how he would sleep after all of the excitement but luckily he slept until 7am this morning! A definite win!
So here is out finger food size guide. This is what worked for us, all babies are different and I’m not a weaning expert, just a mummy sharing what worked for me and my son. Continue reading “Finger food size guide and a really useful banana hack!”
This week has been really exciting. For anyone who has seen pictures of our kitchen, it will come as no surprise that we have been desperate to rip it out and put a new kitchen in since we moved in here. It’s very dated and old, definitely not in a cool vintage way.
I have been asked by several people now to share where I find my meal planning templates.
