THE TERRIBLE TWO'S

I thought we'd gotten away lightly with the terrible two's...

Aria is nearly two-and-a-half and while she's had her moments, if you were to ask me if she was ever 'naughty' I would have to think a little before replying. This week however seems to be a different story.

TODDLER SNACKING | NIM'S FRUIT CRISPS REVIEW

Is it just me, or do all toddlers come with a bottemless pit for an appetite?

Aria is two and-a-half and although very petite in size, that girl can eat! I feel like I'm constantly stocking my cupboards with a huge array of snacks to keep her satisfied throughout the day.

I'm very conscious not to give her too much 'junk' and try to give her the most nutritious foods possible, but with that often comes a lack of variety in the way of 'grab and go' snacks.


When Nim's Fruit Crisps got in touch and asked if we would like to try their selection of fruit and vegetable crisps, I thought it sounded like the perfect opportunity for us to try out some new family snacks, whilst being healthy too.

Total weight gain? Still not sure!

Maternity clothes? Yes, and I've just made a sneaky ASOS purchase with their maternity discount :) I definitely need some more leggings and bra's though.

Stretch marks? None.

Sleep? It's been pretty bad this week with backache.

Best moment this week? Seeing the midwife and hearing the heartbeat!

Worst moment this week? Having lots of back pain.

Miss anything? No.

Movement? Yes, it's getting a lot stronger too!

Food cravings? I'm craving a bit more salad this week and have been trying foods that used to make me feel more queezy.

Anything making you feel sick or queezy? Still chicken, but not as bad this week.

Gender? N/A

Symptoms? Backache, sore hips, nosebleeds and bleeding gums.

Belly button in or out? In.

Happy or moody? Happy.

Looking forward to? Having our 20 week scan soon!

GETTING BACK INTO BLOGGING

It feels like ages since I blogged. Like properly sat down and wrote. I often go through bursts of inspiration for blog posts and then nothing, and it can be quite frustrating!

SWEET TOMATO RICOTTA SPAGHETTI | RECIPE WITH MY LITTLE PICCOLO

Like most toddlers, one of Aria's favourite foods is pasta. It doesn't matter what kind - if it's got pasta in it she's guaranteed to eat it... which is a win for me!

Last month we were lucky enough to work with the fabulous weaning brand My Little Piccolo, and got to try out their first stage weaning pouches, which you can see a full review of here.

They contacted us again to ask if we'd like to try out a family pasta recipe that is featured in their second stage weaning pouches, and obviously, we jumped at the chance.

We were given a list of ingredients, as well as a pretty awesome chefs hat, to recreate the recipe ourselves.


And the finished result!

This recipe is so incredibly easy to make, and utterly delicious from the weaning stage right up to us adults!

Please do let me know if you try this recipe out and what you and your family make of it! Also be sure to check out the My Little Piccolo range, which is available in Asda now!

*we were kindly sent vouchers to purchase the ingredients necessary for this recipe, but all thoughts and opinions are completely our own!
