Oh my little girl. Miss Priya Grace was having a fine old time playing with mama’s precious things and she thought she looked pretty cute. Yes, that is chocolate being used as lipstick. That string of pearls has been claimed by Peach as her own. When I tried to remove them and replace her amber she became rather upset and informed me that the pearls where hers and pushing her amber away she said “it’s boys”. If you see that little tear, that was leftover from when I tried to get them off her! What to do with this girl?
While Peach modeled for Billi Jade, Theo hung out on a mat or with his uncle Andrew. Both the little ones love their uncle Andrew, Theo was all smiles in his arms. Theo is wearing the little vest that Hailey and the girls felted for Priya when she was still in the womb. The night before Errol had indignantly said “We are NOT hippies!” and had to laugh when he saw the way his son was dressed the next morning :)
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!
