Welcome to a day in the life of a one year old. Not just a random one year old, my very own one year old son, L! I thought it would be more interesting to document a weekend day, instead of a week day, because week days mean work and nursery for us, and I can’t imagine that would be very interesting for your lovely selves.
So. Here we go.
Anytime between 7am and 8.30am (on a VERY good day): his Royal Highness decides to wake up. Some days this is a pleasant experience where he wakes up cooing and laughing, and other days he decides that the whole street needs to hear his awakening through the medium of screaming.
Straight after awakening: Breakfast time. L LOVES breakfast. In particular cereal, grapes and toast. His sister, Little I, decided to mix one of the HiPP Organic fruit pouches into his porridge (‘think he like this one Mama!’) and it went down well. He just had to watch out for her trying to steal it. HiPP Organic’s 100% fruit pouches are a great way for little ones to enjoy up to 2 of their 5 a day. They smelt lovely and the texture blended into the porridge perfectly.
Next it’s time to get dressed. That’s always fun with the world’s most wriggly baby. Honestly! I remember Little I being a bit hard to dress but L is something else. It sometimes takes two people to get him dressed! Little I loves helping to choose what he wears for the day.
We’re heading out to soft play, which is always a big hit with the kids (less so with the adults!). Often when there isn’t anything on the menu that I think L will like (he’s dairy free), I bring along a pouch so that I know he’s getting a healthy, well balanced meal full of nutrients. Today I brought two and let him ‘choose’. I think he probably just went for the first one that came to hand!
I’m pretty sure he enjoyed the taste because he wolfed it down. He’s really enjoying trying to use a spoon at the moment so things got a bit messy. Reason number 136 for always having wipes near by. The new HiPP Organic savoury pouches are great because offering more vegetables than fruit during weaning helps move your little one away from a natural preference for sweeter tastes which may help reduce fussy eating later on. That’s why at HiPP Organic’s savoury recipes taste savoury and don’t had added fruit in them. The HiPP Organic pouches are light, re-sealable and unbreakable which means they are great for at home and on the go!
We’re heading home to get in our comfies, snuggle up and watch a film. I love family weekends where we don’t have too many places to go. These are the days I look forward to all week, when I’m working.
For tea tonight I’m making us a stir fry. L likes to join in with what we’re eating (most of the time) and can sometimes end up eating better than his sister.
After a little play together with some toys, we start to have quiet time and then head upstairs for the bath time routine
And now it’s that magical time of the day. You’ve had a fun day together but bed time is on the horizon, and bed time (usually) means a bit of peace!!
Tonight’s story and bed time is extra fun because we’ve got some guests – the HiPP Buddies who are the new addition to the HiPP Family. They’re a group of hard working furry friends who have one ultimate goal – to make the finest organic pouches. Each has their own task on the HiPP farm – they pick the fruit and vegetables, mash them, stir them and finally fill the pouches. We read a story all about them tonight and the three year old decided Toby the Toucan was her favourite because he has a strong beak for carrying fruit from the orchard!
All in all, a successful day!
