No Silver Spoon…Just Plastic!

Sophie is being weaned! Oh GOD my baby is growing up!!!

We went around Asda today and bought some lovely bright orange plastic spoons and green star bowls. We got a load of Ella’s Kitchen pouches and a box of Cow and Gate baby porridge. We did a bowl of baby porridge when we got home – a bowl is about 6 teaspoons. She ate five of those six spoons as well as a 6oz bottle of formula!

Loving the porridge!
Loving the porridge!

She is a right little piggy and absolutely loved trying something new! She kept pulling these little faces that said how much she hated it but then she would smack her little lips and grin for more…as you can see!

We are going to try her on a pouch of warmed mashed banana tonight and then follow on with a bottle. Hopefully this will allow her to sleep through for longer as her tummy will be warm.

I felt SO tearful earlier. Mixture of total pride that she is growing up but also so sad that my tiny newborn is becoming more independent. She is my absolute sunshine and it makes me so sad to know that the wrinkly prawn is so big now.

I need to have a new baby!

I bought a gorgeous yellow dress with green tights for her for Church on Sunday.


I am so so excited that when we do her Christening Husband is getting himself baptised as well! He has already been christened into the Church of England but he doesn’t want us to go to different places when we die and wants Sophie to have a good example set for her. I think it’s wonderful! I cannot wait to tell his mother…


One Very Big Rant

Good evening!

This is not going to be a Sophie post tonight. I am having a lot of difficulty on Facebook these days because of the views of one particularly arrogant little bitch on there. I will refer to her as Idiot.

Anyway, here is a list of facts about the stupid girl, I will address each one after:

She is 19 years old

She has a son

She preaches herself as a Christian (Bible following and quoting)

Despite the above, she thinks it was okay to have premarital sex and get herself pregnant…so her baby is a bastard

She believes that there is no excuse for circumcision and that medical reasons are ‘myths’

She believes that gay people are an abomination

She describes Barack Obama as a ‘N*****’

She will not teach her son about Father Christmas

She is a ‘White Nationalist’

She has previously told me I am poisoning Sophie by formula feeding her

Ok so let’s address each point here. The fact she is 19 and a Mum wasn’t what I was getting at. Most teenage mothers are the most fabulous mothers out there. It’s the fact she is 19 and spends all her time quoting things off the internet as pure fact and shows her complete lack of maturity and total childishness. She has a little boy not yet a year old who is not allowed to know about Santa because she is and I quote ‘a Christian’. Let me ask – bonafide Christians who quote Leviticus and the Bible regularly tend to follow it to the letter right? She didn’t wait until marriage for sex…which I’m sure is a rule or something? I can’t stand people who use a religion as a reason for insulting people.

Anyway. She says she is a ‘white nationalist’ which in laymans terms is ‘someone who hates anyone of a different colour to white and all gay people are disgusting creatures who go against God’. Seriously?? I am sure we are in 2012 here and not 1928??? God tells us to be tolerant and to be accepting of all, and yet someone who calls herself a Christian goes against that! Yes, Leviticus says that man who lie with other men are abominations, but that was the OT not the NT and 3000 year old rules are for that time and that time alone. Also, God made Man in His image…surely that means he then created people to be homosexual right? He accepts them as they are. He made them that way. And Jesus had two Dads!

Not everyone believes in Father Christmas which is cool, but to stop your child from the magic of Christmas by saying it’s not in your religion to do so is so hypocritical of her. There is a serious lack of intelligence in this girl! She believes ear piercing and circumcision is mutilation and that even if there is a medical reason to do so, that must be a myth and you are just a bad bad person. Total and utter bullshit. Honestly that is the most ridiculous crap I have ever heard in my life! And then she has the audacity to tell me that I shouldn’t judge HER for not letting baby learn about FC!? Yeesh. Delusional is not the word!

There are not many people that I know of who have such a damning effect on me in such a negative way. She makes me want to vomit up my own spleen. Any parent knows that the decisions they make are the RIGHT decisions for THEIR family, whether that be breastfeeding, circumcision or any other debate out there. As long as it works for you then it shouldn’t be a problem. For this Idiot child, she believes her beliefs are the ONLY ones that are right and anyone else is wrong. Like I said, total child. Will not listen to reason or even compromise and I think she is setting herself up for utter, utter failure. But you know what? She can mess up her kid. Sophie is formula fed and is happy. Sophie is happy – and that’s cos of me and her Daddy.

Personally, I hope her little boy grows up to be the most effeminate gay man who has a thing for large black men ever.
