Why Do We Have To Do This?

It seems we’ve hit another brick wall with P1. I hate this. Food is such an issue it’s ridiculous. You need food to survive. So why can’t she grasp the fact that she has to eat!! And that one or two mouthfuls just isn’t enough to sustain her. Breakfast is never an issue. She’ll happily have two helpings; a chocolate …

This Is The Life

We tried out a different play centre today. The Fun Factory. It has an indoor ice rink, indoor climbing wall, soft play for ages 0-13yrs and a sensory room. I’m still debating as to whether its better than our usual choice of play. I love that it has more of a variety for the children. I love the sensory option …

First Tastes, Highchair Needed Soon?!

This morning we gave P2 her first taste of something other than milk. She’s 18 weeks old, a little early than the newly recommended 26weeks, but considering I weaned P1 at 4 months I’m quite confident that having a little munch on something wouldn’t harm her. P2 was allowed to try a rusk. She absolutely loved it! Her gums munched …

Building Up A Supply

I’ve been quite relaxed about expressing my breast milk. But now P2 is 16 weeks old I know that the weaning stage is right around the corner. My OH and I have agreed to wait until she’s at least 6 months before she starts on baby rice. Even though I weaned P1 at 4months. I read on the back of …

Bank Holiday Fair

We always get to do something different when visiting my MiL. Always exciting. Today’s adventures was a summer fair. It was not what we expected. We thought it would be in a school field, few stalls and maybe a bouncy castle. But nope, there was a dog show, loads of stalls and several bouncy castles and inflatable stand. We enjoyed …

Chinese Meal

It was my Mums friend, now my friend too… I hope… Engagement party tonight. I felt a bit nervous about going as it was at a Chinese restaurant. I hate Chinese, the food not the people. It’s mainly because I’m such a fussy eater. I hate to try new things. Such a child. Well, we went along and had a …

Pinot Grigio

I’ve decided to start planning our wedding again. I stopped when everything went belly up, it felt like my dreams were crashing down around me and I didn’t want to get excited about anything. Everything went in the bin regarding our wedding day. But there’s absolutely no harm now, after all… One day we’ll have our wedding day! Last night, …

I’m Not Hungry

With growth tests looming, I’m trying to make sure P1 eats as much as she can. However, this is proving rather difficult with a child who seems to have an eating disorder. I’m petite, so P1 will never be a big girl but her appetite is appalling, and in all honesty worrying! I remember when she used to happily eat a …

DP – Five A Day

You’ve being exiled to a private island, and your captors will only supply you with five foods. What do you pick? I’m a very fussy eater. So here’s my 5 a day based on my tastes: 1) A banana – for energy to fight my captors. 2) Cherry Bakewell – we all need a bit of sugar. 3) Chicken – …

Shopping Trips With A Newborn

I thought the 40 Acts challenge today was quite fitting really as I had plans to go to Primark Lakeside to spend my Christmas money from my Nan. Anyone who knows Primark shops know that you walk in and it’s like a jumble sale. Clothes everywhere you look. Including the floor! But when you arrive at 10am it’s like a …

Or perhaps you could hold a Fairtrade Big Brew (including coffee of course!) to promote Fairtrade Companies I’m not the one that does our shopping. If …

Toby Toby Toby – Review 4

We took some time out last night. Couple time. I’m so lucky to have wonderful parents who don’t need much notice to babysit – it probably makes it a lot easier because we live together at the moment. Anyway, we took a trip to my favourite restaurant ever! Toby Carvery. My favourite food is a roast so with me being …

Breast Is Best – Or Just Embarassing

I’ve chosen to breastfeed P2!! Believe it or not it wasn’t an easy decision for me. I had chosen to bottle feed P1 – but when she arrived early I knew I had to express my milk to give her the best start. Without a doubt breastfeeding has better health benefits than bottle feeding both for mum and baby. But …
