my companion

105-365

Today at the library while Priya played happily with Lego, Theo and I laid down on the oversized and unusually comfy pillows and read a novel together. He’s such a sweet companion happily cooing over ‘eat, pray, love’ as I read aloud.

her first rainbow

148-365

148/365

This morning we went on a bit of an adventure. Errol has been taking the car to work and determined not to be housebound, we walked to our local library. Though it is only at the other end of our road it goes to the next suburb over, as the road is rather long. It took us an hour to walk there and we were rather annoyed to find the library didn’t open for another hour! I was busting to go to the toilet, it had just started to drizzle and there was nowhere for us to go. Feeling really frustrated, we wandered around wondering how to fill an hour when we found a little park. I was cursing our luck when suddenly this amazing rainbow appeared and I had to smile. I tried my best to get a better photo of Priya and the rainbow but she kept spinning around and saying “MY BANEBOW!”.

      @Rebecka, Thanks Rebecka. We were lucky to happen across a rainbow :) Too bad Peach was not playing the posing game!

swirl

104-365

104/365

When I dressed Theo today in clothes that Priya wore when she was a year old (!) I realised I’d better get to documenting all these little details that will surely be gone in the blink of an eye.

I love this swirl on the back of Theo’s head. It makes me very happy to smooth his hairs around in the swirl whenever he sits on my lap. It’s so soft and fine, there is nothing nicer to rest my cheek on. You can also see where he’s developing a slightly bald patch :(

Priya’s hair goes in a swirl too at the back, but in the opposite direction. Her hair didn’t always swirl though – Peach’s much more unusual hair at the same age

      @amelia, Thanks Amelia. Priya still has a swirl too. It’s weird that you can still see it now that her hair is so long. Makes me want to get a look at the back of my own head!

      I can’t wait till you have your little man! There are going to be some seriously cute pictures.

Uppy Day-ee

147-365

147/365

Watching Willow and giving me a running commentary “ill-oo is eating”, “ill-oo is cheeky puppy”, “ill-oo is MINE!”.

I decided early that I did not want Peach wearing clothing that had characters/marketing on them and thus Peach has gone this far with not a single ‘Elmo’, ‘Whinnie the Pooh’ or ‘Dora’ branded clothing piece. That was until she came home from her Lola’s on Monday with ‘Upsy Daisy’ flannel pj’s. To go with her new pj’s she also has a special DVD of ‘In the Night Garden’ on the shelf at her Lola’s house. At first I was thinking “OH NO NOT MARKETING ON HER CLOTHES” but the truth is, when Peach pulled them out, proudly exclaiming ‘Uppy Day-ee!” and lovingly patting Upsy Daisy’s picture, I was thankful that Rola had done what I will not. Though Peach sometimes refuses to wear an outfit I’ve selected, she’s yet to show an obvious preference towards once particular clothing piece. That was until she got these Pj’s and had to forcibly remove them when she’d spilt sauce all over herself. The first night she wore them her nappy leaked and I swapped her pants while she slept. The first words to come out of her mouth that morning “MAMA – help! My PANTS! Uppy Day-ee!”.

    Hi, Georgia!
    I found the first blog page that you asked us to introduce ourselves. But I cannot find this page again. I remember a few questions you asked. Anyway, here you are.
    My name is Tomomi (goes by Tomo) Geisler who lives in Madison, WI where it has been below Zero during winters.
    I gave birth to my baby girl (peanut) in August, which things went unexpected ways… Anyway, I got to know your blog through my doula who also takes birth photos. I don’t remember any other questions you asked, but it is very nice to meet you!
    Tomo

    I was not keen on the marketing either, but I began to wonder: if I has given Abi winnie the pooh or even dora would she still have fallen madly deeply in love with the Lightning McQueen boys undies and insisted upon all the Cars and Bumblebee clothing? She adores them, and cries when she outgrows them. I must admit, she looks really stinking cute in boys underwear… J.

      @isaac, Haha, yes, her little boys underwear is pretty cute! It’s hard to know really. I suspect that no matter what you do, they’re always going to want something else. I am sure I’d wear jewellery if my parents were jewellers… that sort of thing. I figure Rola can buy her a few things here and there and it won’t kill me. Peach will get the best of both.

    Soooo cute!
    I felt similar about characters on clothing. However, Dax has just a couple. Doesn’t make a difference to him because he has no idea who they are right now.

    What I absolutely tried to do was stay away from traditional “boy” and “sports” everything clothing. I avoided clothes with balls and sports and “all star” stuff on them.

    Until recently, and we were at the store and Dax was going nuts over a t-shirt with a large basketball pictured on the front of the otherwise plain gray shirt. “Ball!” “Ball shirt!”
    I’m a sucker, was buying shirts for him, and it was 50 cents.
    Every time he wears it, he proudly points at the beloved ball on his shirt now.
    ~sigh~
    I don’t think I’ll be avoiding sports stuff anymore. We got to almost age 2.
    Melts your heart when they love something, though, doesn’t it?

      @Sprgtime, Oh yes, I try to steer away from things with overtly ‘girly’ things printed on them too. I am fine with girlish dresses, ribbons etc, I just don’t like little princesses printed on T-shirts or the like. I am with you on that.

      That is so adorable that he was so proud of his ball shirt. You’re exactly right, it just melts you when they love something and it’s very difficult to take the hard line. Plus, Errol’s mum SO loves living vicariously through Priya as the daughter she never had. It’s really sweet.

    We were the same, but seeing Asher’s face when he put on his ‘Iggles’ pj’s was gorgeous! He too got upset when it was time to take them off!

      @Tara, Oh, he’s got Iggles? How cute! I’m learning to not get too caught up on ideals and see that some things I don’t like (or simply would prefer not) make her really really happy!

love in aisle 3

103-365

103/365

When we went grocery shopping today Theo had his eyes glued on his dada. As we rounded corners and strolled aisles his little eyes were transfixed by his dada. I love watching the interactions between the three people I love most. I find it delicious knowing that they love each other as much as I love each of them. Peach held Theo’s hand and smiled from ear to ear, so excited to have a friend with her.
