Ayla needs your help!

Wednesday, 5 March 2014: Three Hundred and Thirty Eight Days Old.

I finally did it. I finally crossed the blurry line between blogging and bragging by entering Baby Ayla in a photo comp.

I guess most of you haven’t even batted an eyelid at this statement though because you figured it was only a matter of time before I subjected Ayla to a public vote!!

But it’s not just me who thinks Ayla’s adorable! Is it?!

I’m hoping that Ayla’s fan club (Ayla’s Angels I like to call you) will help her gain recognition as the cutest baby in Australia and if not well, we all know she’s awesome anyway!!

The Bonds Baby Competition is one of the biggest in Australia and there’s five People’s Choice awards up for grabs!

So please cast your vote!

It only takes a few seconds and its easy to unsubscribe from the mailing list afterwards if you want too (but Bonds do have some great online sales!)

Click here to vote

Thanks in advance! 🙂

Politics and sleep

20130908-093539.jpg

Saturday, 7 September 2013: One Hundred and Sixty Days Old

Two significant things happened in Ayla’s life today:

1. Ayla attended her first polling booth

2. Ayla went to sleep at someone else’s house

Ok, so attending your first polling booth might not seem very significant for a five month old, but to me it’s an important part of being Australian.

We’re lucky to have our say in how we’re governed and it’s important to Hubby and I that Ayla’s learns she has a voice and can be heard.

While one single vote among 21 million might not constitute as having a say, it represents our right to speak out, make a difference and stand up for what we believe in.

Today’s election stirred a conversation between Hubby and I about how we’ll raise Ayla politically. The decision; to empower her to make educated decisions on what’s best for her.

Now enough of politics.

The second significant thing that happened was that Ayla went to bed at someone else’s house!

We went over to a friends place for tea and decided, for the first time, to try and keep Ayla’s bedtime routine.

So, at 7.00 I gave Ayla her night time feed and by 8.00 she was sound asleep in her bassinet.

It was great! It meant I got to enjoy a nice adult dinner WITH TWO HANDS, and I even got to have a couple of beers.

When the time came to leave we bundled Ayla up and popped her (still sleeping) into her car seat.

I said to Hubby that I finally felt like a real parent, bringing our sleeping kid home after a night out.
