I admit holding my breath while my 7,5-month-old was chewing raisins.
Although we are into the Baby-Led Weaning style, watching her eating raisins was too much for me.
Now I am totally a believer! How happy and confident a baby is when they get to choose what/ how much/ how fast to eat.

We present it when the baby is calm, well fed and aware.
Making this mobile was easy and fun- the best part is how much Lydia enjoys it!

And now you are here.
Welcome, my little one.
My little girl will soon become the big sister to our baby girl.
My heart melts watching her making "preparations" for the baby-
