Sound of happy

A friend told me about this. They got a load of babies, plugged wires into their brains, forced them to listen to all kinds of sounds to test which ones they liked best. Monsters. I’ve probably made it sound worse than it was…or made some of it up. But they really did test which sounds…

Resting bitch face

I’m worried Edie might have a serious case of resting bitch face. I’m even more worried that if she doesn’t that’s just the look she gives me! Compare that with this… Maybe it’s because she’s a skinhead, she might not be able to speak yet but her eyes are saying “you want some? I’ll give…

My Perfect Cousin

Edie has a cousin. Actually Edie has lots of cousins but one in particular has a soft spot for her. This is Walter. The very first time Walter met Edie we took some lovely pictures of them together. He was smiling away but Edie was giving him the evil eye. It’s a funny picture that…

Werk! Supermodel!

Edie had a photo shoot yesterday, she was spotted by a top designer who’s going to get her on the cover of vogue! That’s what I like to tell myself anyway. There’s a baby competition in the local paper and of course we’ve entered our little angel in it. They put the photos in the…

Well that happened quickly

It feels like only a couple of days ago that Edie started being able to pull herself up on things and then fall over soon after. Now all of a sudden she’s everywhere and attempting to pull herself up on everything, like really everything! She crawls at record speeds too, she’d give Yusain Bolt a…

Soft Play

Edie had her first soft play experience yesterday, and so did I with a child as young as 8 months. I checked to see if there was a special baby section but there wasn’t so we went and sat in a nice little area with some soft, colourful blocks. This was all going well until…

Ook-oo-lay-lee

My baby plays ukulele, does your baby play ukulele? Don’t think so. I love playing ukulele, not saying I’m any good at it but I find it so satisfying to just sit there and strum away your favourite disney classics, oh um I mean some cool band that the kids like these days (can’t think…

An audience with Edie

We’re not religious so Edie won’t have a christening. A friend of mine, who’s also not religious, had a Naming Day for her daughter so they could still have a nice get together and celebrate their little girl. We rarely put pictures of Edie on Facebook, and we find it difficult to meet up with…

It’s the little things in life.

Edie has been cracking me up recently. I love all the stages she’s gone through and I love how she’s becoming aware in a different way than before. She gets really excited about certain things and finds odd stuff hilarious and we just don’t know why. Getting out of her car seat, you open the…

Poor sickly baby

Edie has an ear infection, I’m not sure how long it’s been bothering her before we realised, so that could well explain the crying in the swimming pool. I’ve never seen her so upset 🙁 it’s completely heart breaking. For the last couple of days if she’s been awake she’s been making the saddest little…

Swimming with Daddy

If I’d written this a couple of weeks ago it would be about how Edie loves going swimming once a week with her Dad. How she got in the water perfectly first time with no issues, how she gets dunked under the water every week and never cries and how me and Tappy sit watching…
