12 Months In the Life of Luciole

12 Months In the Life of Luciole

I can’t quite get my head around the fact that it was a year ago that Luciole made her entrance into the world. Everyone tells you how much faster time goes with your second child, and it’s all true! The last year has had its hard moments, as can be expected when you have only […]

Perfect BLW tomato sauce: so easy it took me 33 years to learn how to make it

I didn’t learn to make tomato sauce until about four months ago. This is seriously embarrassing but also good, because I learnt a new thing and it is AWESOME! When I did baby-led weaning the first time around two years ago (blimey, doesn’t time fly), we ate boring pasta for ever and ever. I did […]

Baby pictures I could never hope to take myself

Abi Hortin is a friend of a friend of a friend who recently started a photography business at White Tulip. I was lucky enough to take part in a free baby photo shoot she hosted a few weeks ago to get some practice. The results are seriously awesome and I can wholeheartedly recommend her. Below […]

Life With Two Kids

Life With Two Kids

Life has been crazy over here chez la Frog. Pregnancy did its usual thing of taking over my brain space so that there was no room left for anything other than ‘and the next day… And the one after… And the one after that…’. Not that anything terribly wrong happened, just the usual horrors of […]

Are you REALLY going to breastfeed two children?

So far, people who have asked me what I plan to do with regards to feeding baby number 2 have, subconsciously or not, given me the impression that it’s going to be the most difficult thing in the world, because I am so far planning to do tandem breastfeeding, that is, to breastfeed both Little […]

Cuteness overload

Cuteness overload

Until now I have resisted the temptation to post pictures of my daughter because it feels too… open in a way for her face to be all over the internet without her consent but in the lead up to her first birthday next Monday, I thought I would make an exception. There was a digital […]

Weirded out by Parenthood

Weirded out by Parenthood

You would think that after ten and a half months I would have a handle on the fact that I have a baby. Add to that the nine months of pregnancy, and the element of surprise should have left a long time ago, right? Wrong. Parenting is odd, it was odd on day one and […]

Weetabix: an instrument for good or for evil?

This is a genuine question I asked myself this morning. FOR: Little Girl loves Weetabix. She’s capable of eating a whole one for breakfast, which I didn’t think was possible at her age. Whilst I prefer to eat mine with a couple of spoons of sugar on top, she is clearly happy with the raw […]

A month of weaning

A month of weaning

It’s been a little over a month since we started Little Girl on solids and it has been a lot of fun. The best thing from my point of view is that she is finally swallowing food. For a long time it looked like nothing stayed in her mouth ever. She started by just tasting […]

A week of new things

A week of new things

Parenting has a strange rhythm. Sometimes nothing happens for ages and then you get weeks like the last one when lots of interesting things happen all at once. In her own room! Last week was half-term and we finally moved Little Girl to her own bedroom. I felt emotional about it for about two seconds, […]
