Trying to get our children to make healthy choices when it comes to food can sometimes be tricky. The appeal of sweets and ice cream entice children, particularly at this time of year and I often have these kind of battles with my daughter. It doesn't help that the Hubby has a sweet tooth (despite being a type one diabetic!). So how can we encourage our children to make healthier choices? Well making food fun and encouraging them to be involved in the purchasing and making of food has definitely been something that has helped us. So I thought fruit picking would be perfect, even for Henry too.

Amist this amazing heat wave we're currently having and the fact I'm still at work, to say I'm day dreaming of a holiday is an understatement. I often find myself daydreaming of a holiday and remenicing over past ones, the fact that we're not going away this summer isn't helping matters either! Auto Europe recently got in contact asking if I would like to share my holiday habits after they compiled some research on British travellers holiday habits - which came out with some surprising and sometimes amusing results.

There are so many weaning products that are available to parents, it can be a little bit daunting knowing which ones to try. Babies can be fussy and sometimes it takes a little bit of trial and error to find the perfect weaning products that you and your baby enjoy using. With Henry now being 10 months, we've grown to love quite a few products that we would simply not be without and I thought it would be nice to share them with you today.

We've reached double figures, Henry is ten months old. I just can not believe that it's only two months till his first birthday, and yet being a family of four just feels so right, like it's always been this way. It's funny how that works.
I have to admit there is very little to report this month. He still has just the two teeth. He is still crawling around at the speed of light. He confidence cruising around the furniture is growing and he's starting to let go and stand independently. I'm sure this means walking will soon be on the agenda.

At the end of 2015 I set myself a series of personal goals for 2016 and as we are over half way through the year I thought it would be the perfect time to dedicate a little bit of time reflecting on those. I'm completely guilty of setting myself these targets and then never re-evaluate them at any point during the year, so really I'm always setting myself up to fail. Not good!
