A Portrait of my Child | 21/52


A slightly different kind of photo from me today and there’s not a flower or a stick in sight! The weather started off pretty miserable this week and since I am now roughly the size of a small house I’m not up to much at the moment so I’ve been trying to find things to entertain Lyra close to home. This day we decided to bake together. It was only one of those packet kids mixes but I let Lyra do almost everything and it kept her entertained for most of the day. We both had so much fun! As you can see from the picture above Lyra was not above testing the product and I have to admit the house looked like a flour bomb had gone off in it afterwards but the cakes tasted good and she loved it so I’d count that as a success.

Linking up with What the Redhead Said and her Living Arrows. You can catch up on previous weeks here.

      Thanks! Licking the spoon was always the best bit of baking x

    I love that first photo and we have many similar ones from the last few years – all kids love licking the spoon after baking. I just took a look at IG to see if there's any sign of baby yet, as there isn't, I hope it goes well when it happens. Thinking of you x

      Thanks! It's funny how they learn how good licking the spoon is at such a young age. I'm pretty sure Lyra only bakes with us so she can do it! No, no sign of baby yet. It's decided it wants to keep me waiting! x
