Eating feet


Tuesday, 15 October 2013: One Hundred and Ninety Eight Days Old.

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.


My face


Saturday, 15 September 2013: One Hundred and Sixty Seven Days Old.

My face has become Ayla’s new favourite play thing.

I love it. She reaches up and grabs my nose, puts her fingers in my mouth when I talk and she tries to touch my eyes when they blink.

Sometimes if I’m holding her but looking away, she reaches over to pull my face toward her.

Ayla looks at me with so much wonder and awe it makes my heart feel like its about to burst.

She loves me so much, and when she’s gently touching my face with her tiny chubby hands, I feel a love for her like I never have before.
