Grace's 8 Month Update

Grace is 8 months old! How did this happen? I honestly can not believe how much she is learning and growing, it is so exciting, but at the same time it breaks my heart a little to know that my little baby is growing up. So in her last update we had started weaning her, and it is going great. She pretty much loves everything I have offered her. The only thing that she turned her nose up at was a pouch of fish pie, honestly it smelt horrid, but I've offered it her twice now and both times she has refused to eat it. Grace is having more textured food now and she seems fine with it, although we have had the occasional gypping incident. Grace is loving finger food at the minute, I haven't tried her with to many different things as I want her to get used to chewing food first before I bombard her with too much. She has had baby crisps, rusks, banana, and baby biscuits. It's so far so good, she's loved everything, so we are hoping we've got a good eater on our hands. Now, Gra…

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…

It's Been A While.

So it's been a while, Grace has well and truly taken over. We have had a lot happen over the past month. Unfortunately both my great grandparents passed away at the start of March, within a week of each other, it was a sad time, and I am truly grateful that Grace got to meet them both. They both lived long and happy loves, it was wonderful having the 5 generations within our family, even if it was only for a short time. On a lighter note, Grace is doing amazing. I will do her 8 month update and fill you in on everything she's been doing. At the minute she is a happy baby girl, who is totally obsessed with her daddy.

I have also recently decided that I will not be returning to work. I don't think I ever told you all what I did for a living, I was a supervisor in a clothing store in a huge shopping centre.
At the minute it is not right for our family, and if I'm honest it isn't worth the money. I would spend more money going back to work, what with fuel for the car, the …
