In their natural habitat

There are some afternoons I will always remember with the kids - nine times out of ten, the magic happens when we are just hanging out at home. This was one of those moments. I Googled some face painting ideas and the fun was on for young and old. Next time I think I’ll do me too!

Dressing Up

Dear Lola, sure likes to dress up! This week I’m going to do a photo montage of all her recent outfits, because it really is quite impressive.

There was a time I thought I could influence what she wore, and every day would start with a battle - I was just so frustrated that there were so many clothes, not cheap clothes at that, that she just wouldn’t wear!

Now I’ve given up. Every day she gets to pick what she wears, my only input is if I think she’ll be too cold. Fair enough right? She’s in control and I have to say, she does a great job, putting together ensembles that in their rainbow craziness actually kind of work. Even the multiple changes of outfits per day I’ve learned to accept. Deep breath!

Lola’s Current Obession - Dress up

What is it about little girls and dress up? This may sound absurdly sexist, if so guilty as charged - for Oliver NEVER had this obsession!

Our little girl can already put her pants on ALL BY HERSELF thank you very much. Grunting with frustration as she does, she will not, I repeat, not, accept any assistance!

I can’t believe how quickly she is growing up!

Current words, aged 18 months: water, mama, dinner, flannel, ice, hot, oh, boat, doctor, cracker, dog, flower, fly, no more, bubble, thank you, bye, ball, duck, baby

Current teeth: 4 on top, three on bottom and molars ( I fear) on the way!
