My life in photos: March 2016

We're already a week into April - seriously, where has the time gone? I've been back at work for over two months and Jenson's first birthday is less than two months away. Woah. March flew by in a whirlwind of yet more coffee and cake, plus Easter goodies and sunny walks. Take a peek at… Continue reading My life in photos: March 2016

A day in the life of Jenson (and Mummy!)

As I approach the end of my maternity leave, I thought I'd share a day in the life/photo an hour type post, so there's no Silent Sunday this week. Here's what we got up to yesterday... Jenson woke up at the rather unsociable time of 5.50am. Not too bad considering he didn't want a bottle… Continue reading A day in the life of Jenson (and Mummy!)

Jenson: Six months old

Oh my gosh, how is my baby six months old? He's definitely not a newborn anymore. Today is his half birthday and it's crazy to think that in just another six months he'll be a year old and possibly walking and talking! This past month he has grown and developed loads. At his last weigh-in,… Continue reading Jenson: Six months old

Item of the day: Jingle Belly Christmas Dinner by Ella’s Kitchen

We've been weaning Jenson for a week now and we both love Ella's Kitchen. I love it because it has nothing added whatsoever - just simple fruit and veg - and he loves it because it's super tasty! Everyone says to just mash up some of what we eat for him but we're not the… Continue reading Item of the day: Jingle Belly Christmas Dinner by Ella’s Kitchen
