Today Priya was a model for the amazing swimwear, Billi Jade. Hailey was the photographer for the brand photo shoot and though Priya was running wild at all the excitement of hanging out with big girls, she managed to get a few of the little bikini baby.
This is a new Australian made brand, which has been created by a friend of my sister, Lien. She makes these all herself and has developed an entire range of affordable, funky & fun children’s wear. I wanted to take home nearly every swimsuit! I was even starting to plot living right on the beach to warrant owning so many! Peach must have picked up on this and promptly peed in her bathing suit which meant we were allowed to keep it! What a lucky accident I must say!
For those of you in Brisbane, Lien has just opened a store in Mount Gravatt east – Retail store at: Dance & Splash Shop 3/105 Seville Road, Holland Park 4121 (07) 32191715. Her website is still under construction but no doubt when it’s up there will be links! For now, how about you become a fan on her brand new facebook page!
Today we went to our friend Heidi’s blessingway. Priya was playing in the tent (that Heidi made!) with her little friend Akasha.
Askasha and Priya haven’t seen each other in nearly a year! A lot has changed for these two girls, I couldn’t believe that seemingly overnight Askasha had turned from that gorgeous little chubba into a real little girl – pigtails and all! They were pressing each others buttons by snatching toys and loudly declaring “it’s mine!”. Priya poked Akasha’s arm and when Akasha poked her back she got told “NO TOUCH”. Who needs TV when you have hilarious toddlers to entertain you.
Today was Heidi’s blessingway. Heidi is due to have her little girl in 12 days and so all the women gathered today to bless her on her journey to meeting her new little girl. We wrote in a little books our wishes for her birth, sat round eating yummy food, sewing quilt patches and chatting as women do. It was really nice to see Heidi looking so beautiful and ready for this amazing event, surrounded by so many people that love her. I wanted to get a photo of Theo and his soon to be new friend but Heidi was doing a very good job of concealing her bump in layers of black! The little lady is there somewhere, under Theo’s leg. We joked about an arranged marriage between Theo and the bump but at the rate I am promising Theo off, he’ll have 5 brides by the time he turns one! It just seems such a convenient way to secure more lovely family!
I left Priya in the lounge wearing clothes. I came back to find that she’d stripped off and was now wearing only 3D glasses and seemed to be piloting an imaginary ship. When I came to take a photo she just averted her gaze not acknowledging there was a huge mama right where her open sky had just been.
