Eating feet

Ayla discovered her feet weeks ago, but today she started eating them.

Argh – So cute!! I love my Baby Ayla so much and to watch her learn about the world is just the best thing ever.

Lately Ayla’s learned or done
something new every day and its just so exciting; she’s literally growing in front of my eyes.

I’m so lucky to have this time with Ayla and I’m grateful that I live in a country where I can enjoy special moments like this without worrying about things that shouldn’t matter, like money.

I know staying at home with a baby doesn’t work for everyone, but for me it’s one of the most special times in my life.

Every morning I wake up excited to find out a little bit more about who my Baby Ayla is as a person, and I relish her little discoveries like this one today.

Bathroom sink

Wednesday 18 September 2013: One Hundred and Seventy Days Old

We’ve discovered that Ayla fits quite comfortably in our bathroom sink.

It’s a handy discovery because we have virtually no water pressure in the shower, no bathtub in the house and the baby bath is now too small and too awkward.

So until now bath time for Ayla has been less than ideal, more so for us than her.

Lately we’ve even taken to showering in our outdoor/poolside shower. It only has a cold setting but now that the weather’s warmer it’s actually a good option.

Except that we have two high-set houses across the street from us which both have balconies in clear view of our “bush squirt”.

So this is why the bathroom sink is a welcome variation… Not to mention that its handy for keeping Ayla secure while I’m putting on my face and doing my hair!
