Morning cereal

20th of February

It became a little routine for Lemmy to have oats with milk and bananas for breakfast. Sometimes I cook the oats with water and add a bit of cold milk with the bananas. Other times he eats the oats alone with milk and bananas. Raisins are added at times. This boy could live from that breakfast alone! He loves it, he longs for it every morning. At times he even jumps with joy when it's ready on the table ( if I take too long to wake up in the mornings) screaming : Cereals, cereals!

Here is the big bowl of oats.

 Enjoying it and the empty bowl.

 Many times he has finished 2 full bowls.

I think we started giving him oats when he was 1 year old. Since Marc and I decided not to give Lemmy any sugar,Chemicals And Additives , we started reading labels more often for what to offer our son. It is amazing the amount of crap/junk you can find in regular cereals. I read in one nutrition site how one bowl of cereal is equivalent to one Doughnut! auch! 
Reading about oats, we found out how good they are for our health. It is the best cereal for all people. It has so many properties and either alone or cooked is very nutritious. Marc and I started to crave that little breakfast  for ourselves and when we can, we eat it with some blueberries, agape syrup or honey (  I craved a bit of sweetness, thanks to my sweet upbringing!  I wish I was raised like Lemmy in that area!)

A good day

8th of February

The sun was shining. You don't get to see that too often over here in England. That fact alone meant the start of a very good day.
I started with a photo session at a Preschool in Harpenden. I loved it and it was a bonus that Lemmy came along and had a great time too.

We had a light picnic lunch under the sunny winter day.

I went to look for some yarn in town. I found a beautiful soft chocolate colour. Then, I found one of the Cabbage patch kids in a Charity shop for only £5. I named her Annie, to be friends of Parker ( the one that I got in January) and Lemmy loved the idea. She survived the washing machine and looked like new. I also found a Jamie's Oliver brand new book with recipes from Spain, I thought Marc would love it!

 Lemmy fell sleep in the car, after he had  run around the park with daddy, while mummy got some shopping done.
We headed to the Zoo! Here in England, the Zoo closes rather early during winter. At 4pm it shuts down. We had only 1 hour and a few minutes left. We went in the car instead and was fun. First the Elephants ( Lemmy's favourites)

Driving with daddy 

   Running with mummy

On the way home the car started to over heat. Finally Marc decided it was better to stop and call the service to come and check it out. Lemmy was super excited that a tow truck was on its way to rescue us! He kept on saying : The truck will rescue us! rescue us...etc...he was sooo chirpy and happy about it!
We went outside and had a run around by the side of the road, while waiting. We ran, took some photos, and laughed. We were there for 1 hour that seemed only a few minutes. Until it started to get dark and cold, so as we headed to the car for some snacks and drink, the tow truck showed up! Lemmy was over the moon! ha ha

                             waiting to be rescue

I got home and went through the photos of the day. I Loved them all. It was a very full day, a very good day indeed.
