IMG_20160124_185315

 

Two year olds get a pretty bad reputation. They’re often portrayed as uncooperative little sh*ts, who tantrum all the time.Admittedly, we have had a few tantrums in the last year, but really, we never did quite get the terrible two's that bad. Many parents dread the ‘terrible twos’ only to discover that, actually, they really aren’t that bad.

Welcome back to our weaning series. This week I've moved on to more lumpy/textured food for Harry.
