Millie's first birthday is fast approaching and we are celebrating by holding a picnic party with two of her chums. We went for a picnic with one of the babies this week to scope out our chosen spot. As it was an impromptu trip I hadn't got suitable picnic food and ended up taking fish cakes. Big mistake. Huge. For a start, I hadn't got them shaped very well so they just crumbled. Of course Millie wasn't keen on taking them from a spoon when she could reach forward and take them from the tub. I'm sure you can picture the scene after that - one very fishy picnic rug and baby! So now I'm thinking I need to get on the case of picnic friendly food. I have a Butter Bean Sandwich Spread which I will post soon. Of course your ideas are most welcome, I'm sure you are all light years ahead of me on this!
On the subject of cake, which I posted about here, I am still not sure so will leave it out for now. Strangely enough, when I saw my HV the following day she kept telling me it was ok to give babies cake. I wonder if she's a reader...?
