Fortnight in pictures (oops)

Oops I forgot to blog last week - sorrrrry! Anyhoo, little Button and I are sick with colds this week so it's been a PJ day today on the couch. He's been reaching his milestones lately though with gusto!
Yummy carrot! He's having just a little bit of rice cereal and fruit/veggies once a day to test out texture and taste. He loves every bit and giggles with every mouthful.
He finally mastered the mini pushups this week - yay fathead!
Mini chucks for Chuck Jr. Bargain at my fave second hand baby shop, See Saw.

Of course I've been baking...again
This is a gorgeous Egyptian desert called Basbousa. It's a semolina cake with a lemon and rosewater syrup. Oooh so delicious! The recipe's from a book my lovely old lab gave me when I left - Food Safari (buy from Bookworld) but the recipe is actually on the SBS wesbite here.
I have a few weddings to go to this summer and there's nothing in my wardrobe that fits off shopping I went! Why is it so hard to find pretty dresses that are breastfeeding friendly and made for big busted, but small waisted girls?

Ooh and I've allllmost finished the craft room! I have a new desk and the wardrobe is oh so organised now. I'm just putting up the shelves and making labels for the storage in the wardrobe and I'll share pics as soon as it's all done. Huzzah!


  1. that cake looks delicious :)

    hope you both feel better soon!

  2. Hope you are both feeling better now.
    Must try that cake -looks yum!
    Fashions for breastfeeding are hopeless, I agree! Looks like you found some pretty things, or maybe some 2 piece outfits - but I'm sure you looked everywhere.
