WHAT I FEED NOVA DAILY / MEAL PLAN


  Here’s a few shots we did the other day in our kitchen. Look at that sookie face all because she did not wanted to sit on the kitchen bench. Also, did we notice the little strawberry mess on my top? Always a smart idea to wear white x baby x food isn’t it.   How To Increase Your Baby’s …
