I like eating

Sophie's teething problems have been much less after 4 days of screaming, it is now just the occassional whine.

Meanwhile she has been enjoying her food, but seems to be extra hungry these days and demanding more food and milk and been getting up in the night for milk more than normal.

So far mainly been on baby rice, baby porridge, carrot, carrot and swede, marrow and a tiny bit of banana. We're trying to start on the veggies before the fruit, so we've got some spinach to try, then maybe peas, sweet potato and then onto the sweet stuff!

Above and Below: Marrow before and after!! She sneezed a few times whilst eating her marrow, which we had made a bit watery so it went everywhere!!

I'm not really teething!

Well these last few days have been hell! Sophie has been screaming pretty much off and on for the last week or so as her first teeth are coming through.  Nothing seems to stop it permanently but distractions, sometimes Calpol and Anbesol can help.  Before this video she had been screaming hysterically, but you'd never know! And shortly after she was hysterical too.

Sophie's first food adventure

Poor Sophie has either been teething recently or has been wanting some solid food already, or possibly both. She's been quite grumpy for the last few days and whilst Calpol gives some temporary relief, she has still been chomping down on toys and fingers and trying to eat everything in sight.
We have tried her with some baby rice today, and went down very well.

We like the little smile that she gave after her first few spoonfuls!

We will try the baby rice for a few more days and then onto more exciting meal creations!

The Start of Something New....

Righto, well sometime ago Andrea had her own blog, but it fizzled out after a while.  Now its the start of something and this blog is here to show you the adventures of Miss Sophie as she goes about growing up, mostly from the perspective of a grumpy young man!

We have missed a bit though as this blog is only starting now, so here is some potted highlights from the last 4 months.

My first Curry, a biranyni and Chicken Tikka Bhuna yum yum. She wasn't really eating it, but it always seems to the case that she is fine sat by herself until the food arrives and then she wants attention!






My first time at a beach, we went to Sacrborough. Daddy was working over there, and after he finished we went to the beach.
