Do you remember your baby’s first year with its heart-warming and sometimes funny firsts? At the #LittleDishFirsts Twitter party, we all shared memories of those special moments, with other blogging mums. There were lovely moments…and some surprises.
The party was sponsored by Little Dish, makers of healthy chilled meals for children from one year plus. These are nutritionally balanced meals for little ones made with 100% natural ingredients and no added salt or sugar, giving kids at least one of their five a day from each meal. As you and your child begin your post-babyhood life together, Little Dish will be there to bring your little one great tastes, interesting textures and balanced nutrition in its ready-in-three-minutes delicious recipes, so you can enjoy meal times together. Little Dish meals are available in the chilled meals aisle in Tesco, Asda, Waitrose and on Ocado.

Their First Words: Not what we were expecting
The first clear word my daughter said was football which made my wife and I so proud @ADayinDadsLife
My daughter’s was “Mountain” meaning she wanted to get on my knee. Think it showed her artistic spirit @kateonthinice
My little girl learning the word “Poo” from her big sister, and repeating it constantly whilst giggling cheekily! @MadameWeiss
