Welcome To My Blog.

 
Welcome to my blog!
 
My name is Laura Wood, I am 22 years old and I live in Sheffield, England.
I am currently living with my wonderful fiance Mark, and we have a 4 month old little girl called Grace! Mark's last name is Bell, and therefore we are The Bell Family.
 
Why am I starting a blog? In many years to come we want to look back on all the good (and bad) times, and be able to relive the memories of our little family. Hopefully Grace (and maybe more little ones) will look back on this in years and either be really embarrassed or laugh, either way I will continue to blog our life.

BIG UPDATE!!!!

So it's been a while. Life truly took over, and I honestly don't know where to begin.
I imagined being a mum and keeping up with this blog an easy thing to achieve, how wrong was I? I have so much to update I feel like I'll be typing away for ages. So this is probably going to be a long one. 

Firstly a quick update on the kids (yes I said kids!!!)

Grace is doing amazingly well, she's 2 and a half! How the hell did that happen? She's in nursery five days a week, although it is just 3 hours in a morning, but I'm not complaining. She really has turned into the sweetest little girl, she is so caring and loving towards her little brother, we'll get to him in a moment, she knows a few colours, can count to 3, potty training is in full swing (I will do a post dedicated to potty training) and she's always singing and dancing, mainly to make her little brother laugh. All in all she's come on so much since starting nursery in September and I'm so glad we mad…

Weaning with Grace.

We started weaning G last week, and my god does she love real food. She is only 5 months old, but she was showing all the right signs that she was ready for the real deal.  We started her off on Organix baby rice, just for lunch, which she was so interested in, for the first few days, but I could tell she wanted something abit more exciting. So we tried her with Organix strawberry & banana porridge, and she loved it! She could not get enough of it. Now we are in the second week, she is having food for breakfast & lunch. We have introduced fruit purée. She loves the Ella's Kitchen banana purée & the apple purée.  For now she's content with what we are giving her, but soon I'm sure she will be ready for some more interesting flavours! I can't wait. I'm a little too excited about giving her real food!
Here is a lovely pic of Grace eating her porridge this afternoon. 
She's too cute

Grace's First Easter.

This Easter was Grace's first. We don't celebrate Easter for the religious reasons, we just celebrate it in the chocolate giving way. Easter Sunday we didn't really do much. We ate chocolate and went to the pub in the afternoon to meet up with Marks family. Bank holiday Monday was the fun day! Up at our local working men's club, they hold an annual Easter party for the kids, they have games, music an Easter bonnet competition and of course Easter eggs. A few weeks earlier I had started making Grace and my niece Ellie's Easter bonnets. It took me and my sister a total of 3 hours to do them, although I did keep adding bits and bobs to them. I couldn't help it. Here is the finished product. All mine and my sisters hard work paid off, because Grace won first prize! She won an Easter egg and £10! WooHoo. We all had an amazing Easter bank holiday, and I am looking forward to the next one so I can do a bit more with Grace. Maybe an Easter egg hunt! Grace must have had a lo…
