Finger lickin'

Amelia J crawled properly (all be it very awkwardly) for the first time yesterday! She has been trying it rather tentatively ever since. It’s a sight to behold; rolling, tumbling, legs go every which way and she often ends with a dramatic face plant. Go girl!
Also, thanks to Ada, I have found a web site featuring the some of the recipes and the books of children’s nutrition specialist Annabel Karmel. I have an Annabel Karmel book (the only cook book I didn’t put into storage) and am slowly working my way through it trying almost everything out on Amelia. The current hot favourite is Chicken and Apple Balls which Amelia will try and eat all at once in one big mouthful.

  7. I had a look at the cooking website and realised that this recipe is basically all my son eats – appropriately called “hidden vegies”! I will now try the chicken balls and see if I can’t hide some veggies in them as well!

    Do you have illustration books for kids? Your drawings are just amazing and I thought it would be perfect to be in children’s books.
