Oh No, Not Tantrums Yet!!

I think our little baby is turning into a toddler!!! She has this look when she wants something, and when she hears "No" she gets this cutest little frown and stomps! Not quite a tantrum, but I dont think she's far off now.

Last week we took her to this really big park with a massive hill and a lot of trees which she just loved running around wherever she wanted. She hasnt quite learnt how to run, but boy does she try. And because of the hill, she was going a lot faster than what her little legs could keep up with and kept toppling over. And then when she was facing up the hill, once she toppled over, she couldnt get back up because of the slope of the ground. We couldnt stop laughing!!!

You can tell when she's been cheeky with her little hands held behind her back!

Shoes Shoes Shoes (plus a little kitsch)!

Well, what can I say? My little girl has a shoe obsession! Now, this isnt a new obsession, it's been going on for a few months, pretty much from when she could waddle around the house, she would pull off our shoes, and try and put them on herself, or take off her own ones and try and put them over our toes!
Last Saturday I decided it was about time to go for shoe shopping for the first time, and gosh did she have a blast. She was pulling shoes off the rack left right and centre, and kept walking up to me with a different pair of shoes.

On another note, we have recenlty acquired two new very kitschy prints! We actually got these off the same person. We brought the J H Lynch Print off eBay, and when we were speaking to the seller about postage etc (it was all the way from Adelaide) he was telling us about the other prints he had, including the beaituful print by Shabner "Melanie with the Red Ribbon" and we just couldnt resist it.

Last weekend we went for a drive up to the Blue Mountains to help my mum move house. She moved into this cute little white fibro 50s 'cottage' with a beautiful garden which Alannah had a ball exploring. She tried to pull out all the little flowers from the garden, and when she succeeded the force from actually grabbing the flower made her fall right back and land on her little tush. Was so very very adorable!

She loves playing with food jars and spoons now!

Shoes and Shoes!

Hope you all enjoy your long weekend!
