Miss Independant

'Baby led weaning', or our variation of has proven to be a real help when introducing foods to Willa. We had a lot of trouble getting Cohen to eat a variety of foods (especially vegies), so we tried a customised version of baby led weaning when Willa began eating foods, and it has proven successful. She loves pretty much anything you put in front of her, and will happily sit and feed herself. Yes its messy, and yes we sometimes mush foods up as she has still only got two teeth, but she never ceases to amaze me as she chews through a strips of meat.

Just two

At 10 1/2 months old, Miss Willa's teeth have been somewhat slow to appear. We still only have 2 bottom teeth, with her 2 top front teeth teasing but not actually cutting through. Maybe i should of sung, "all i want for Christmas is YOUR 2 front teeth"...i am really hoping we don't have an onslaught of shiny whites arriving at once as she has proved not to be the toughest kid on the block.


Its a girl

Almost ready to pop... i was lucky enough to just capture this beautiful bump only a week before Miss Mahi arrived....

Dinner Time

The evenings are so lovely during the summer that the kids eat most of their meals out on the back deck. Mostly so we can enjoy the cooled temp from the hot summer day, and also so that the mess is kept outside for ease of cleaning...Things get rather messy!


Water Baby

The fact that our miss came 2 weeks early to arrive just within the Pisces star sign is all too fitting. Her love of the water, especially bath time makes the end of the day so fun (most of the time) as the room is filled with giggles and splashes.

The other night, when it was time to finish up and hop out, Willa shyly turned her head to ignore my request to stand up so i could help her out....

This was then followed up with the cutest, "mum i don't want to hope out look" she has pulled in a while as i continued to coax her to stand. 
My baby girl - those doe eyes only work on your father, i know all your ticks kid!
Guess it was worth a try....hahahahahaha...she is going to most certainly give me a run for my money, "pay back" my own mother would say. Hahahahaha...
