proud bear

Theo bear has been rather pleased with his ability to pull up lately. He’s crawling everywhere (at alarming speeds) and pulling up on every surface possible! It’s alarming how mobile he is! Priya sort of skipped the crawling stage so it’s very strange to me that he’s getting around on all fours faster than I can hide the choking hazards (or get around to vacuuming… oh dear… disgrace).

cookies

Baking cookies with the girls. I feel really guilty that I let my sister pay me to baby sit her girls when we have so much fun. Even though Priya was rather morose for most of the day due to a large ulcer in her mouth – she cheered up for cookie baking and managed to decorate them with the skillz of a m&m connoisseur.

in the garden

In the garden with his cousin, Zali. We are very blessed to have ready made friends, helpers and role models for the babies. I feel especially grateful that my nieces are two of the most intelligent, patient and thoughtful girls I know. I baby sat them today and the kids had such a nice day playing with each other. Zali wore Theo in the Ergo and as we went about the shops people made comments about “big sister” doing a “very important job”. I love when I am out with all four, people assume they’re all mine! Hilarious, because yeah, I started popping kids out at 12 years old ;) I do wish I could lay claim to these lovelies but sadly no, they’re already well loved by their mother.

a passionate farewell

273-365

273/365

This morning our guests left to go home to Texas after a two week stay. Though the girls had been up in each others space, pulling, yelling and on an occasion or two, biting – they had grown quite fond of each other. On waking P had started to declare ” I go play with Wose!”

It was nice having a live in playmate for our Peach, even if she did draw on the walls with permanent marker ;)

The girls said goodbye on the driveway and I got rather sad wondering what Priya would say when she realised they weren’t coming back. When the taxi pulled away and I got a bit teary eyed waving goodbye to Robin in the window, Peach said matter-of-factly “its okay, dey coming back, dey coming back tomorrow” :(

By the afternoon she was wandering around the house saying in a dejected voice “Wose… Wose… Woseeeeeee?”.

Waiting for his bath. The water was apparently very relaxing as he peed down the side of the tub! Yay for boys!

    He’s soooo strong! My Boy is younger than yours and already he’s outdoing him in every physical sense. I love Theo’s hair line – here we call it a Heart of Midlothian cause it’s shaped like a heart :).
