The clock contains different colored blocks that are numbered and each a different shape. In the centre is an hour and a minute hand to teach the child how to tell time. At first, it was diffucult for my 18 month to put the shapes in the correct spot, but about a month later, she was able to match all the blocks to the spaces in the clock. Now she just has to catch onto the numbers and colors!
I am happy that my friend introduced me to the Melissa & Doug line of toys as they are colorful, high quality and highly educational. The wooden shape sorting clock alone helps me to teach my child the different colors, shapes, numbers and how to tell time.

That's just what it is, a great site that offers recipes for wholesome baby food.
My 9 month old loves Baby Mum Mum crackers and since I have always been a fan of homemade, the teething biscuit recipes interested me most. Most of the biscuit recipes call for ingredients that I typically have in my kitchen so I was excited to be able to try one immediately. There are even recipes that do not contain egg or wheat.
I decided to take the simple route and choose the very easy Eggless Baby Cereal Cookies.
(Maggie from wholesomebabyfood.com has given me permission to share this quick recipe)
All I needed was:
1 cup of flour
1 cup of baby cereal and
1 cup of juice
I mixed them in a bowl, rolled out the dough and cut the dough out into little shapes. The cookies were then baked for 20-30 minutes at 350 F. (It was closer to 30 minutes in my oven, but as they always say.....oven temperatures vary)
The dough was very sticky and soft as mentioned at the end of the recipe so I took their advice and added a little more flour. I also baked the biscuits on a cookie sheet lined with parchment paper so the bicuits were easily removed after baking.
My baby enjoyed a few homebaked biscuits for the first time and I look forward to trying more of the recipes soon!
Please comment and let us know if you have tried any of the recipes at http://www.wholesomebabyfood.com/ or if you have other tips and recipes for feeding baby.

Here is the birthday banner, which was colorful and fun!
Last time we had a party, all of our little neices chose cupcakes over cake, so I had to make a small cupcake tower. Couldn't help myself! I discovered that one of them only likes the icing, so next time, I will probably fill a cupcake cup with just icing and no cake just for her. ;)

There is also a variety of items which is great if you like to purchase a few different items from a single shop. I thought the bangle (pictured above) would look great with a little black dress or even some jeans.
