what sofia eats, v.1

      grape tomatoes, avocado, grilled veggie burger and annie's cheddar bunnies      

      green seedless grapes with pancakes      

      cheddar potato pierogis, tangerine slices, garlic pearled couscous with corn         

Diapers & Skinny Jeans will be slowly introducing more and more new, original content over the next coming weeks, and I'm excited to announce I'm bringing back the "What Sofia Eats" portion of the blog to you.  (Especially since it doesn't consist of rice cereal and mashed bananas anymore!) 

Since I started a bit late, I only have three meals to show you this week-- but, I'm hoping to catch every meal for the next seven days.  I know I've personally struggled at times with finding inspiration for kiddo meals, so I figure if anyone else out there has run into a similar problem, hopefully these meals can give you something new to try with your little one.  We've been pretty lucky that Sofia will try most anything once, though certain things like broccoli or peas are still a big "ick!"

PS- thank you for all of your great discussion on yesterday's seasonal post.  It is so wonderful when you all chime in and share your own personal stories.  I truly enjoyed reading every last one of them!


  1. Thank you for starting up this series again! It can be hard coming up with new meals weekly for my little one. I need all the inspiration I can get : )

  2. Oh, and I noticed Sofia's White Sox shirt! I'm from the Chicago area but, sadly I don't live in Illinois anymore : /

  3. What a small world! Illinois is great, but I'm not sure that I'm ready for our Chicago winter quite yet. Thankfully it seems to be headed in a mild direction so far.

  4. Love these posts! I am always looking for new meals for Chloe! Also we're also working on using bowls and utensils these days.

  5. Fantastic! I'm always looking out for new ideas except I have a fussy 4 year old that I'm trying to UN-fussy! I have to say that as of last Wednesday she is finally eating broccoli! My trick? Serve it every night :)

  6. Lovely post. So glad to have made my way here. Lovely to meet you x

    I wrote a post a few days back with lunch box inspiration also :)

  7. What beautiful meals you are creating for your babe! Our little people eat anything and I really believe it's because of the variety of food we have exposed them too. Well done Mumma! Wishing you a delightful week.
    Steph :) x

  8. my favourite thing about feeding the kids is chopping everything into bite sized portions and separating them. Even salad must me served by colour!

    As for baby/kid food- fritters are a healthy fave here. My friends and I always joke that 'you can fritt anything'!

    xo em

  9. This is too cute, I love seeing what other mumma's give there little ones.

  10. YES! I love seeing what people feed their kids!

  11. Oh those little fingers! I think Sof eats better than I do most of the time...

  12. It's so good to share baby food ideas! Kellie xx
    PS I'm laughing at Em's 'you can fritt anything' comment.

  13. Oh I think Sass is stuck in an egg and veg for dinner rut. This might be just the thing to help her move on! x

  14. this is lovely ... we are always looking for new ideas for the little ones. x

  15. I recently found your blog and love this portion! I am always looking for and creating fun new recipes for my toddler. Looking forward to following along, thanks!

Easter Weekend

Hello! Happy mid-week to you. This is the roll of photos we shot over our Easter weekend, and oh what a wonderful weekend it was. It was so nice to have family here to visit - even if the weather was cooler than we anticipated! We visited the redwoods in Felton, ate vegetarian burritos, went to the epic shoreside in Montara, and the brewing company in Half Moon Bay. Our hearts are full and our home is feeling quite empty now ;)

As a side note, I've found a renewed love with film. This is a post for another time, but it bears mentioning here! There has been much on my mind re: photography, and hopefully this will be the space I can share that.

For the curious, all the above were shot on a Nikon FM10 with Fuji Superia 400 speed film.

The Long And Short Of It

Hi, friends. How was your weekend? After having non-stop rain for nearly a month, we finally received a short break in the El Niño weather to head to the coast. Even though it's not in our backyard, I still feel like twenty miles to the beach is a good compromise. It really is lovely here and it makes me happy to see the girls so at home in the sea.

This week we are gearing up for Easter and some very special visitors -- my Mama and my sister! It will be the first time Mom has seen our new home or visited the Bay Area, so to say we are excited would be an understatement. We cannot wait. I've even kept it as a surprise from the girls, so I'm sure the look on their faces alone when they see Grammie and their Auntie will be the highlight of the whole trip.

What about you? Any special Easter plans or crafting?

We made some hot crossed buns for the first time last year, and I'm hoping I can bake a little something special this year too. We're going to try this recipe a…

Hi friends. I wanted to take a minute to catch up together and fill you in on a few new things! To anyone new to our space, thank you for visiting and I'm glad you're here. You may have noticed the look around the blog has been much simpler and clean. It's something I'm trying to do not only in just the blog, but with my life itself... a bit of a spring-cleaning, if you will. My Facebook feed filled with "friends" I haven't talked to in ages, a twitter name that no one could pronounce or understand, blog columns and categories I couldn't keep up with, even pressure to post when I know I should just be enjoying my time with my family. The list is seeming never-ending for a lot of us out there, and I just wanted to be honest and say that I too have gotten "stuck" one time or another, and here's a few things I did to streamline my way out of it:

• Keep as many things cons…
