Starting your baby on solids or getting your toddler to eat their greens are a couple of widespread parenting hurdles that we all have to cross.
I propose that it doesn’t have to be all so intimidating if we just get back to some nutritious basics.
These are just some of the things that have worked for our family. Hopefully some of our experiences and recipes will serve as a resource to you in dishing up a wholesome, magical mealtime for your own little ones as they develop their taste buds and personalties!
My baby girl is at the age where I really should probably stop calling her a baby girl. But just a little while longer yet, mmkay?
Her personality is developing into a magical (and heady) mix of diva-esque independence, (read high frequency melt-downs), sweet charm and silly humour.
One of her favourite things to do over the past week is to make exaggerated faces. Over and over again. Doesn’t get old. Fill in with a caption in the comments if you so desire…
I know I do. Oh, to be a baby and to have the luxury of falling asleep anywhere. At least she has her older brother to hold her up!
This was taken whilst grocery shopping after a very long night of teething and not wanting to go to bed before the sun went down. Someone has spring fever and they have it bad. Someone’s mother needs to sew some black-out material as a liner to their bedroom curtains…
This may be Abby’s second spring around the moon – but it is clearly the best one she has had yet. Girl can walk and run and do all of the big girl things. More or less.
Click through for a typical day in the life of my 21 month old baby slash toddler girl as she wreaks havoc and discovers all of the wonders of spring. (Now that she can control where her feet go.)
You know how sometimes you forget about a toy? Or those with smaller parts…oh those blasphemous small parts. Sometimes they get lost in the pile(s).
A few years ago we were gifted this adorable wooden dollhouse. Complete with a solar panel roof. I know. I kept it out and organized for a while, but my boy never really got into it. In keeping with our Montessori approach to play at at home – I do try to keep on top of toy organization and keeping things at a minimum. Less is more.
