BlueZoo bug print dress

When LB was born I said she wouldn’t wear much pink as there were lots of other colours in the world, well guess what, she suits pink especially deep pink and other deep vibrant colours. Saying this I’m still not a fan of pretty pastel frilly fru fru some shops pass off as baby girl clothes, so when I saw this bug print dress from Debenhams I knew I had to buy it for LB.

Carrot, Tomato and Cheese Pasta

The toothless wonder she is means she still struggles to eat certain foods, especially vegetables, but this recipe for carrot, tomato and cheese pasta from One Handed Cooks has proved to be a big hit. It’s quick, tasty and features a good amount of vegetables. We usually serve it with fusilli or oat and wheat pasta shapes. My 4 year old goddaughter even enjoyed a portion when she stayed a few weekends back.

Discovery bottles

One of LB’s favourite places in the kitchen is the recycling crate filled with empty cereal boxes and plastic pots. She’ll be the kid who prefers to play with cardboard boxes and not the toy that came in it. I came across discovery bottles on Imagination Tree and I enjoy making them for LB. Her favourite so far is either the bottle filled with balls of foil or the one filled with rice and various cake sprinkles.

Osprey Poco Plus rucksack

LB is an outdoors, active type of girl. We regularly go on walks and as she’s getting older the slings I usually wear with her are not practical  for long walks. My parents gave us an Osprey Poco Plus rucksack for Christmas and we love ours. It provides great adjustable support for your back, has generous storage for that all important changing bag essentials and snacks plus the bag stays upright when placed on the ground. You’d be surprised how many of these bags don’t. It also comes with a sunshade which has already been used a lot. Not just for the sun, but also as wind protection while walking along a blustery Formby beach on Easter Sunday.

Have you discovered any great things for little ones this month?
