Mince & Tatties

Alex continues to eat more of the same foods as Abi and I do. This evening, it was that classic Scottish dish, mince & tatties. Just onion, beef mince, mashed potatoes and some gravy. As usual with savoury evening meals, he ate about half of the bowl we made for him. He’ll get the rest for his lunch tomorrow 🙂

B hits six months; six months hits back


Alex loves his new high chair – and the muffins that go with it!



Still unsure about the Pop Up People, though…
