Mamatography Week 33: Growing Girls
|August 22, 2012||Posted by Luschka under Mamatography, On Mama's Mind, Projects|
My beautiful girls. So in love with the life that they bring into my days.
215/366 – First Friends
Aviya and Harry – South African friends came round for a South African food day, which happened to fall on South Africa’s ‘National Women’s Day’. Just loved the shared snuggles and making friends.
216/366 – Purple Eyes, Like Mama
Okay, don’t judge me! I went out a few days ago and wore make-up. I know… once upon a time that was the norm. Anyway, since then, Ameli’s been saying ‘I want purple eyes, Mama, like you.’ Well, we did it, she wore it for a few hours and she’s not asked again since. But she enjoyed it. She did walk around all afternoon going, “Look Mama, I’m Luschka” though, which was rather sweet.
217/366 – Granny And Grandpa
The inlaws came for a visit. It’s so lovely seeing them – they are just really great people.
218/366 – My First Sensory Box
Aviya doesn’t sit up unassisted yet, which really bugs me! By this age, Ameli was crawling already! But then, I always used to say that she robbed me of a ‘babyhood’ since she did everything so fast, so I don’t know why I’m complaining now! Anyway, if she could sit up she’d have a lot more fun, but since she doesn’t, she flops over a lot. I gave her a box of ribbons to play with, and she tried to eat the box and then the ribbons, and then she flopped over, but at least she had fun for a few minutes.
219/366 – Picnic Baby
We walked to a local friend’s house, and Ameli and her son played while Aviya watched. Such a cutie though.
220/366 – Garden Centre Fish
I took the girls out for a walk at our local garden centre with another friend, and just snapped pictures as we went along. Here’s Ameli looking in the mirror (what a stunning picture, right?), and the next one is Aviya getting a pedicure* from the koi fish. She wasn’t sure about it!
*They just nibbled at her toes, not painful, not a real pedicure.
What else has been happening in the world this week? Let me know!
