Weaning: Uh Oh – have we got a fussy eater?!

It’s time for a WELL overdue weaning update! Violet is now 10 months and well on the road to eating solids, but I have to say it’s been a much trickier journey than I ever imagined. As Violet reaches 10 months, she is becoming a really fussy, picky eater which I really didn’t expect as I love my food, especially vegetables, spicy foods and curries. So, I thought Violet might take after me (not that I feed her curry!) and like broad range of flavours, but it’s been slow progress to introduce different tastes recently. She’s grown a little personality…

Violet’s First Christmas

They say that when you have children, Christmas becomes all about them, and I can safely confirm after our first Christmas together as a family that this is true, but it is also totally magical experience too. It’s like that childhood magic returns and you see it in their faces, I’m sure Violet is too small to understand fully, but she was so taken by the lights, the presents (of course) and even tried some Christmas foods too. I sat watching Christmas movies with Violet by the tree and had to pinch myself, I couldn’t believe I have my own…

Blogging Goals for 2018

I don’t normally write posts like this but as it’s new years day of course, like we all are, I’m feeling reflective. I feel excited to say my blog has stepped up a gear this year in 2017, I had so much more time to work on it being on maternity leave, plus having a baby that loves being photographed is a bonus too! So, as I’m hoping to continue on this roll, it would be good to set some goals to look back on next year and see how I did. One day I wonder if I could make…

2017 – The year of Ultra Violet

Wow, I can’t believe I’m writing my 2017 review post, already. Where has this year gone? How is Violet nearly a year old? Time has flown by, even more so since having Violet, it seems once you have a baby your life goes in double time. It’s just crazy, but this year has been amazing. Maybe one of the best of my life, it’s certainly been life changing and different to say the least! I’m not sure I remember life without having a baby, what did I do with all that sleep, all that spare time? So, I really wanted to…

Preparing for Christmas with my One4All Gift Card

If you are reading this post on the day it goes out, there are only SIX DAYS UNTIL CHRISTMAS. Yes, you heard me right, SIX DAYS TO GO! Have you done all your Christmas shopping? Bought all of your food? Written all your cards? I thought I was all organised with it all, but this week still seems like a mad scramble to get it all done, maybe that is just how the final week before Christmas is meant to be as no matter what I do, this week is always ends up as a huge rush. A couple of weeks…
