Shopping trolley

Ayla in the trolleySaturday, 12 October 2013: One Hundred and Ninety Five Days Old.

Ayla and I stepped our weekly grocery shop up a notch today, when I upgraded her position in the trolley from the infant carrier to the toddler seat!

For the past few weeks I’ve noticed the inbuilt straps on the infant carrier were becoming lower and lower on Ayla’s shoulders but it wasn’t until today that I could bring my self to sit her up in the trolley!

At first Ayla hated it; we weren’t even halfway round the fruit and veg section when she cracked it and I had to carry her for a little while, but by the end she was a big fan of the big girl seat.

It seems like only yesterday when Ayla was so tiny she was swamped by the infant carrier, but now she’s sitting up and looking around from the toddler seat reaching out to grab me and everything I try to put in the trolley.

I always get comments on how cute and well behaved Ayla is when we’re at the grocery store, but today it made me extra proud 🙂

Four months and up

Sunday, 18 August 2013: One Hundred and Thirty Eight Days Old.

During this weeks grocery shop Hubby and I discovered little pouches of puréed fruit for babies aged four months and up.

We couldn’t resist.

The first cab off the rank this morning was Pear and Superberries and according to Ayla it was berry delicious!

Within seconds of her very first taste Ayla grabbed the pouch off Hubby with both hands and sucked away at the nozzle – hard!

She had thick, purple, pear and berry juice all over her face, hands and clothes in no time, but she sure loved every second of it!

And so did I.

It was beautiful to watch Ayla’s eyes open wide with surprise and curiosity and see her tiny tongue lap at the flavour on her lips as it dribbled down her chin.

I can’t wait to try out the other flavours and see what Ayla thinks of them!
