About Me

My photo
Last year I turned the big 3.0 and got married - I thought that was my milestone year. As it turns out, 2009 quickly overshadowed 2008 when my husband and I found out we were pregnant. I'm going to be experiencing everything for the first time as a woman and an expectant mother which is why I'm calling this my year of firsts. I'm senior editor for Marie Claire South Africa.

Maya's first taste

Without doubt one of the most exciting events in a child's development is introducing them to the wonderful world of flavours and food. I'd been vowing to wait until the six month mark but after the egging on of parents and others... and after giving her a taste of banana on Christmas eve and being attacked for the spoon, Hein and I bought her small containers of organic baby food and Purity (what child doesn't taste Purity sometime in their life), and gave her a taste of butternut which she loved!
I can't wait for her to try apples, pears, avocado...
