What Mini H did – 18 months

HDoingAClip

So many bloggers I follow do monthly updates on what their kids are doing. When I read them, I always reflect back to what H was doing at that same age. It has made me regret not capturing her achievements here; Since my blog is first and foremost a place for me to record life, it would be nice to have something to re-read in the years to come. Embracing the motto “Better late than never.” I’ve decided to start

Our favourite toddler snacks

FruitySnacks

H is one hungry little lass. She’s an active toddler with a very healthy appetite; She goes barely an hour without eating most days. She eats a lot more than most of her friends and at times I have worried I could be over-feeding her. But after trying to hold-off on giving her snacks when she asks for them, it’s clear she just needs to energy! This means I must have a good mix of snacks readily available. Of course

Our trip to Woburn Forest Center Parcs

Last weekend we went on a long weekend break with the in-laws to the Woburn Forest Center Parcs near Bedford. Living in Hertfordshire, it was a wonderfully convenient 40 minute journey.

Birthday’s when you’re the mum of a small person

Last month it was my birthday. Whilst I was still awake early, Sam got up and went downstairs with H so I could have a lie-in; For breakfast we had some delicious pancakes and H decided to play ball and not throw any of it anywhere; We went out for a nice morning stroll in the sunshine; Then over H’s nap time I had a quiet read and opened a few presents (so they didn’t get pinched by little hands);
