Lilly's 40/41st Week Of Life

* We bought Lilly a cheap little ball pool from tesco to see how she liked it and she loved it! 

*I have been wanting to take Lilly on the swings for ages but the weather hasn't always been on my side so we finally got the chance to take her and she loved it and started making "eeee" sounds! So cute!

*I bought Lilly some "stunner shades" haha in the form of peppa pig so she can be like mummy, lets face it like summer hats and socks they end up throw on the floor but look too cute. This picture makes me laugh as it looks like she is saying "five times you put these on me, five mummy"

*When i said to my fiancĂ© can you get us some "tip-tops" he didn't have a clue what i meant. It was really warm outside last week so i put Lilly in her cute little play suit and we sat outside in the sun and she tried a "tip top" 

*Lilly's face every time i tried to put sun cream on her

*Sitting in the sun on another sunny day and although the sun glasses didn't stay on longer than 10 seconds her hat did!

*At the swings again! I think I'm going to buy her one for the back garden for her birthday as she loves them so much!

Hope everyone had a great weekend

Tropical Teething Ice Lollies

Hi everyone! Its a bank holiday weekend Yeyy! And what's best is that the weather has actually been nice and warm so lets hope it stays that way. I wanted to share a really quick and easy "recipe" if i could call it that on how to make these tropical ice lollies. They are so easy to make and are great for warmer weather and also for teething babies. Lilly is currently going through the terrible teething stage and is still yet to get a tooth but i know its coming. Teething can be a hard time not only for babies but for us mums too and anything i can do to help i will try. I made these for Lilly a few days ago and at first she wasn't sure on how cold they were but quickly started to gum it and they really seemed to settle her little teething mood. I got this "recipe" out of the Annabel karmel baby and toddler meal plan book and here how to make tropical teething lollies in 3 super easy steps.

What you will need:
*1 large mango, peeled stone removed and diced
*180ml tropical fruit juice
*3 tablespoons icing sugar
*1 tablespoon lemon juice
*Lolly moulds

*Blend all the ingredients together until smooth.
*pour into ice lolly moulds.

And there you go, so easy and simple and helps sore gums. I bought my lolly moulds from Asda and i think they were about £2 and they can be used over and over again with all different types of fruits.
