Miss my Ayla

Friday, 20 September 2013: One Hundred and Seventy Two Days Old.

Hubby and I have had a few massive days at home with the renovations, and now I miss my Ayla!

She’s been right here with us of course, but because we’ve been so busy I haven’t had as much time to hang out with her as I usually do.

Amidst all the work, we did get to have a bit of fun this afternoon when we put Ayla and her friend Baby Coops in the wheelbarrow for a swim!

It was very cute – and a welcome break from concreting – but tonight I still felt like I wanted to cuddle Ayla for eternity and make up for lost time!

I’ve been so conscious that these early days of Ayla will pass by in a blink of an eye and I’ve not wanted to miss a single thing.

To make my guilt over the last couple of days worse, Ayla’s developed a little bit of a cough (I think it’s from all the dust in the air) so now I don’t want to let the poor cherub out of my sight!

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!
