Dear Alice- Week 27

Wednesday, September 05, 2012

Dear Alice,

You are almost crawling. It is amazing to see you growing up and moving more and more. You can almost sit up by yourself as well. If I balance you and let you go slowly, you can manage to sit by yourself for a few seconds! It's so weird to see you sitting like that when only a few months ago you were new born and barely opening your eyes.

You developed an awful rash the other day, which I was worried about. It looked like little raised red spots on your belly. I took you to the doctors and she thought it looked like a food allergy. However, I can't work out which food it is that is giving you it because I am mixing different things together now. So I am temporarily resorting back to giving you individual tastes until I figure out what it is! I have a sneaky suspicion it might be that tomato sauce you has a week ago... but we shall do some investigating!

I am making you food from scratch now too! I feel so bad about giving you jars for every single meal so I bought a book and am making food. It's not as hard as it looks! I made you some chicken, sweet potato and carrots the other day and you loved it! It was so easy to make, I just cooked the veg and chicken and poured it all in a pan with some special chicken stock made for babies. Then I blended it all together and put it in the freezer. It tasted great, much better than those jars! But I may still use them every so often...



  1. Aww, this is so sweet! Homemade baby food sounds like a great idea too. x


  2. Oh I hope you find out what caused that rash soon, poor Alice! I'd love to find the time to make my own baby food, but I just don't have it! I do give him fingers of cucumber and other things which he loves though. How are Alice's teeth? Xo

  3. I have a little Alice too. She just turned 1. She was named after my grandmother.
