The baby’s arrived… Zoe’s nursery showcase…

It’s about time!

Finally I’m able to provide a tour of little Zoe’s nursery (she might be little, but her double chin is increasing in size daily, and the tops of her legs look like a stack of bagels!).

Babies, Persian love cakes, rosewater and macaroons…

Although I was up to my neck in dirty nappies and baby vomit (I had a week alone with the two kids whilst my husband traveled interstate for work), I couldn’t let the day come and go without making a bit of a fuss of Heidi.

So we had a small family afternoon tea, and Heidi and I did some baking… (I must add that Heidi wears her Liberty print apron every time she cooks… most of the time naked underneath!)

We made it…. our (not so little) Heidi is now one! The photo below was taken before all her buddies arrived for her party last weekend. Whilst I love this photo, I prefer the ‘behind the scenes’ shots that show you her true personality…  … Read More

Heidi’s new nursery – ‘put a bird on it’

When I first did a post on Heidi’s nursery (very close to a year ago, when she was born) I kept mentioning it was her temporary nursery because we were renting at the time (and the walls were a very vibrant blue which I hated). Until we had moved into the house we were building I never felt that her room was as I wanted it to be… so here it is her ‘real’ nursery, finally!

Before we go any further, I must share with you a You Tube clip from a TV show called Portlandia. I haven’t seen this show (or even heard of it, until last night), however it was brought to my attention by a friend who was over for dinner. This particular clip is called ‘Put a bird on it’ … Whilst watching it all I could think about was Heidi’s nursery – enough said (for now)…

8 Months has flown by

Our little Heidi is 8 months old today. I thought, by now, I would grow tired of making movies about each milestone (I’ve surprised myself!). This one is set to one of the songs my sister put on our wedding music playlist, and one of my personal favourites… Steal My Kisses by Ben Harper:
