May-June Moments

Here are a few other highlights to touch upon before moving on in my blog:

For my family belated bday dinner we had the surprise of having Felicity up in town to visit us. She is delightful and is truly a kindred spirit and made the night so special!


Here's another look at the cuteness that greats me each morning. :)


Jaren's play date Elleanor. He gets crazy excited when he sees her in church.


Jaren's first attempt at eating rice cereal. So excited to start with but not as happy by the end. At the time I was breastfeeding and bottle feeding him and decided that to add cereal feeding on top of that right before our big US trip was going to be a nightmare. He was only 5 months at the time anyway but I had been feeling a little pressured to start him on solids. So I made the executive decision to postpone that until he turned 6 months, which was a good call in the end.


Oma and Opa's birthday party. I was waiting for ages for Jaren to grow into that darling suit my sister-in-law Claire sent us and then to my despair when I tried it on him one day he was already almost too big for it. But isn't it so cute!

Hey Leah, Charli and Zak never ate Farex I had to make food from scratch with both of them. They never even ate custard or baby food from the supermarket, even if it said organic. But it was heaps cheaper making your own veges and bulk freezing.

Oh my heavens you'd be so proud of me - we totally make our own food for him (other than baby cereal). He's actually really good and will pretty much eat anything we give him, but I never would have thought I'd be making my own baby food. But it is good to know he's eating things all fresh and healthy. :) ps: my blog link for you doesn't work anymore on my dashboard and so I don't get your updates. Why???? :{

Outfits always look was bigger when they're not on a baby, I always think that.

Not sure but I will send you another invite. I am proud of you about making your own baby food. That bottle food in the shops is crap. Have you tasted it? No wonder my kids never ate it.
