10 Things I Love About My Baby

by | December 4, 2017

Raising a child is hard work, that’s no secret. Some days it can seem like you have spent every waking hour busting your butt only to get to bedtime with more dishes to wash, more washing to hang, and more mess to clean up than you started with.

Those days can have you tearing your hair out. But there’s a reason we all do it and the reason is love. There’s nothing more motivating for me than to pause amongst the chaos to admire one of the things I love about my baby. These are just ten of those many, many things:

  1. The little dimples in his knuckles- I’ll really miss those when he gets grownup hands!
  2. The sparkle in his eye when he grins cheekily at me. Usually when he’s doing something he knows he’s not meant to.
  3. The way he clings on to me as I lift him out of his high chair.
  4. The way he kicks his legs so excitedly when his dad comes home from work (‘happy feet’)
  5. The studious look on his face when he’s trying to master a new skill.
  6. How much he loves to explore and investigate new places and objects.
  7. His love of the outdoors and watching trees swaying in the breeze.
  8. His yawns! They are the cutest yawns I’ve ever heard.
  9. The carefree way he laughs.
  10. The special way he gives us kisses, even if we do get a bit covered in drool!


There are so many more things that make me fall in love with my baby all over again each day. I know as he grows up there will be an infinite number more. The hard days are not so bad when I take a moment to remind myself how lucky I am to have such love in my life. Sometimes it even seems like those days go by too fast!


A Note From The Staff At ‘Vegan Pregnancy and Parenting’

Happy Vegan Eating! Do not forget to check us out on the Main Facebook Group, where we discuss kids, pregnancy, nutrition and veganism in general. There are over thirty thousand vegan parents in our, all of them raising little vegans.
There is also a Vegan Eats For Smaller Feet, where parents get together, share recipes, swap disaster stories, and generally learn the best ways to hide the broccoli in the food for kids. So it’s worth checking out, and know that even though your kids are vegan, it doesn’t mean they’re going to suddenly love those brussel sprouts and carrot soup.

If Facebook isn’t your go to social media, we can usually be found liking far too many amazing dishes on Instagram. If you’re raising a vegan family, be sure to tag us on there for a chance for your vegan family to be featured, or amazing vegan dishes to appear on our main page!
Lastly, don’t forget to have a quick peek on Pinterest, where we pin all these amazing recipes and vegan friendly ideas. We receive over 250,000 weekly viewers on Pinterest, so we must be doing something right.

Happy Veganing, everyone! We are very happy that you have found us, and you’re raising little vegans. The world needs more people like you.

Raise humanity. Raise vegan!


Kate Timmins I’m a first time mama living in beautiful Adelaide, South Australia. When I’m not at home enjoying the company of my partner, our gorgeous baby boy, and our five rescue cats I love to spend my time walking along our local beaches and trying new foods from the growing number of vegan eateries in our city. I’m proud to be a foster carer for my local animal rescue; I believe that saving one animal may not change the world, but it will change the world for that animal! Follow me on Instagram for Cats, baby, beaches, and tasty vegan food.
