What can you feed a 6-9 month old?

“A baby’s motivation to put food in his mouth is curiosity and copying – not hunger “ ― Gill Rapley

I mentioned that Matthew was showing signs he was ready for solid food (sitting up, looking at my food, grabbing my food and shoving it in his mouth, that kinda stuff).

This is baby number 1 and I can’t tell you how many videos, websites and apps I looked at to ensure I had the hospital bag essentials I needed for the labour and delivery.

Babies, Break-ups and Blogging

“Some changes look negative on the surface but you will soon realise that space is being created in your life for something new to emerge.”
Eckhart Tolle

It’s been a couple of months since I’ve posted anything new on here but after a much needed break I’m back doing what I love. To mark my return I thought I’d share a little little life update on what’s been going on and what I have in store for my little corner of the internet.
