The Hungry Little Vegan Caterpillar




It has been decades since my last post. But, no apologies. I am loving mommyhood too much to find the time needed to sink into my blogging. Plus, we have been busy! I do however, have to blog my sister's most amazing tribute to Aodhan's 6 month birthday.

Emily is a stellar cake/cupcake maker, but I wasn't prepared for just how talented she was when she turned Aodhan's favourite book, into the best 1/2 birthday treat EVER.


She used the chocolate cupcake recipe from VCTOTW and the rest was her own inspiration. She was also cool about taking out the sugar and using some maple syrup instead.....

Aodhan loved it. Ok....I LOVED IT!


We are currently enjoying the world of Baby Led Weaning, which involves letting your little make his own way into the world of food. Aodhan can't get enough of anything we offer, including Tofu 'Chicken' Curry Salad, cucumber, rice cakes, peanut butter, hummus - you name it, he'll eat it. He is still 100% a boob man, but I can see that the days will be numbered once he gets his teeth (still NOTHING!) and makes the synaptic connection between hungry belly, chewing and swallowing. Until then he is just enjoying food for the fun of it and learning all about the textures, tastes and smells.

Hope everyone had a very veganny holiday! Happy New Year!

that's such a cute idea! I love anything to do with cupcakes, and your son is adorable.

Don't apologize for being busy, mommyhood is a full time job in itself. Blog when you want!

Happy new year! My nephew is as old as your son and he's also trying lots of different foods these days.

that cake is gorgeous and I just can't believe how much Aodhan is eating already - I think I am going to try sylvia on cucumber - but I don't think she is ready for a tofu curry salad yet! glad you are enjoying motherhood - it is such a wonderful time of constant change and magic
