Food Amelia Couldn’t Live Without

1. Banana porridge
Amelia isn’t fussy if it’s cow and gate or aptamil as long as she gets her breakfast. She’ll eat other flavours if she has too but banana is her preference.
2. Fruity melty puffs
Amelia happily tucks into these as snacks or with her lunch (they are like baby wotsits). Her favourite ones are strawberry. Ella’s Kitchen strawberry and banana and kiddylicious strawberry puffs are two of Amelia’s favourites. If they aren’t available she’ll also tuck into carrot puffs from Aldi. She’s a growing girl and loves her food!
3. Yoghurts
Amelia particularly likes Yeo Valley – little yeo ones. Like the puffs if there are only alternatives available she’ll eat those too. Any fromage frais make her happy.
4. Rice crispies
Probably the strangest one on the list, Amelia has really taken to these. To start with I was putting these in her high chair tray so she could play with them whilst rob and I have dinner. (Unlike some things they are easy to clean up) In the last few weeks she stopped playing with them and started shoving them in her mouth. She loves the pop noise they make when they touch her tongue.

On another note – anyone else go to the shops and end up buying things they don’t need? Went over to Aldi to get baby milk and Amelia fell in love with a fluffy penguin. She was heart broken when I took it off her to pay for it. Who could resist that smile though?

Winter is Here

For me, it is now officially winter. Today, for the first time since before spring, when I walked indoors my glasses steamed up. It was so cold outside that when I came back home, my glasses were so fogged up that I couldn’t see. The irony is not lost on me.

I took Amelia on our usual walk, Something we now can’t do without gloves, scarves and Amelia’s gorgeous snow suit, a fluffy penguin one from next that her nanny on her dads side bought her.

Aldi have got their Christmas range in now and I could have brought everything. I settled for buying one of their gorgeous scented candles. There were several to chose from and I very nearly bought one of each but I restrained myself.

I can’t wait to buy our decorations and celebrate our first Christmas in our first home as a little family of three (5 if you count the uncle pigs).
