We are lucky in that getting Ella to eat fruit and vegetables has never been an issue.  She’s a little fruit bat who will choose blueberries or carrot sticks over cake or biscuits any day. Her favourite fruit is bananas – she will eat one or two a day.  We always have a healthy banana pile on top of the fridge (and there’s always a panic when we’re running low!)…

So, tonight I was getting everything ready for Ella’s tea – the fish fingers were in the oven, the potatoes boiling on the hob and the broccoli was sat on the work top waiting to be cooked. 

Or so I thought…


Our little veggie fiend had seen her prize, thieved the broccoli and was stood innocently munching it, wrapper still attached as Ian entered the kitchen.

She wouldn’t be parted with it and wandered off into the living room crunching as she went…

We can only hope that Lucy is as easy to please with food as her sister.  She’s had her first tastes and introduction to a spoon this past week.  I’ll start baby led weaning once she’s got the hand to mouth action sorted (it’s so nearly there!).  She’s definitely getting the hang of it now, can’t wait to get her going properly…


I’ll leave you with one last picture of our broccoli bandit…

What do you mean its only one of my 5-a-day?!

Happy Tuesday everyone xx

Our first baby, Ella Mary, was born at the end of November 2010. We were shocked to find out soon after her birth that she has Down's Syndrome. I was determined from the start that Down's Syndrome will never define Ella or what she is able to do. We will provide for her everything she needs to become the child and the person she deserves to be. There will be hard times ahead.... there are already many hard times behind us. But I already know that the good times will always outweigh the hard times. She has taught me so much in such a short time and seeing life from a new perspective is a privilege that not many of us get the chance to experience.
