Sunday, 29 June 2014: One Year and Ninety Days Old.
Ayla got to hear the barrackers a shouting tonight when we took her to see Collingwood v Carlton at the MCG!
Hubby and I we’re so pumped to be back at The G and so excited to have our mini Magpie in tow.
Ayla was fantastic, a little overwhelmed at first, but she settled in quickly and watched wide-eyed as the crowed cheered, putting her “go pies” move into action whenever she could.
We had fantastic seats, in perfect view of the goals, but with not much shelter we felt the full force of the 6 degree air.
Ayla was warm, in four tops and two pants, two pairs of socks, sneakers and a beanie, and when I produced a warm bottle of milk and wrapped us both up in a rain jacket she passed out for a whole quarter, without so much as a stir.
The walk home was good, although freezing, but Ayla had the best seat in the house tucked up in the baby carrier on her Daddy’s chest, underneath his coat.
PS – Collingwood won.
