PJs from Nana

More of Emma's hats modelled by herself and Hamish before school the other morning.

For Easter Nana sent up some really nice PJs that we wear all the time but finally Mummy got round to taking a picture of us in them. Here we are giggling on Hamish's bed just after bathtime yesterday. Thanks for our lovely PJs Nana.

Shoes shoes shoes and shopping

Negotiating the stairs with all her accessories.
Ready to go out Mum.
A lot of effort went into this little number the other day, she has her shopping bags filled with all sorts of treasures and her nice clothes (Sian's Poncho) and shoes on (her own) and she decided to team them with a necklace from the dress up box (yes they are plastic bones don't ask it was for a old work dress up function African theme I recall) and one of her pretty hats from cousin Sian. We were only going to school to pick up Hamish but all the bags had to come along too.

You may have already heard about Emma's love of shoes and hats, here she is wearing a few pairs. Above are her favourite shoes that are upstairs and she is mastering walking in heels already.

More shoes and her lovely PJs from Aunty Sue and the boys. She can even say duck and point to the ducks when she wears them.

I am a Robot

Why sit on a chair when you can stand on it.... our little daredevil girl

School holiday fun waiting at the train station

Robot Boy - great costume designed by Hamish with some help from Dad

Wrestling Snakes in Ikea

Well Hamish has just returned to school this week after 2 action packed weeks of school holidays. He had a little holiday to the Rainforest where he went bush walking, on a tree top walk (supension bridge throught the rainforest canopy), a spotlighting and glowworm night tour with Daddy, games room, dinner in the restaurant on kids only buffet night, feeding the king parrots and lorikeets and other adventures including daily spa baths on the deck. Now if you ask him what he enjoyed the most of the rainforest holiday he will answer with having dinner in the cafe. Well it was a restaurant and yes there was an endless supply of gummy bears and sour worms at the dessert buffet.

Also during the school holidays we had a trip to Ikea or as Hamish pronouces IKAYA he loved the carts you push your lunch along on in the cafe (there is a trend here isn't there he loves cafes not that he eats much other than cakes and sweets) Emma enjoyed her first Ikea experience and look the fun doesn't need to end there when you get home you can play dress ups with the 35 cent bag you purchased to put your other purchases in. It does make a good robot costume and topped off with an old Ice Cream container he looked great.

Another day we took a train ride to South Brisbane with some school friends to go to the Museum and Gallery of Modern Art. It is very exciting and noisy when you travel on the train with three 5 year old boys, 2 little sisters who are 3 Emma and the Mums. The Mums were the quiet ones. There was other play dates at the park and feeding the ducks and a trip to the movies to see Toy Story and Lego City building to be done. PHEW Mum and Dad are glad holidays are over now cause they need a rest.

17 Months old now

Playing Shop in the clothes she picked out to wear and if you think she looks a little chunky well that is because she has a denim skirt on underneath the summer skirt all teamed with Hamish's swimming hat, her own tights and shrug cardigan watch out Vogue Emma's growing up.

Her curls admired by all

Daddy's bubbly spa bath, a little bubbles goes along way

Feeding the birds Lamington National Park

Emma was 17 months old yesterday and she is currently dealing with the pain of 1st Molars coming through not nice at all. But once they are here there will only be 8 more teeth to arrive. She is mostly a very happy little girl who plays and gets about the place making all around her laugh. Those who are not nearby don't know that her hair is growing and she has curls they are very cute and admired by all. She likes to wear hair clips and thanks to Nana and Aunty Naomi she has quite a collection of them. She touches her hairclips in her hair and says pretty. She has quite a few words now and can say shoes, hello, Daddy, Mummy, Mum, No, cheese, poo (when she has done one), dog, duck, pretty and car. The funny thing is she says cheese when she gets her photo taken cause Hamish has taught her that. She is a really climber and thinks that it is social acceptable to sit on the dinner table rather than at it. She is some what of a daredevil and climbs everything.

She loves shoes and hats as well as shopping bags she wears hats inside, outside anywhere really the other night she even had a bath with one on. You see Mummy picks the fights she wants to fight and wearing hats in the bath even if they do get soaking wet is just one she was prepared to let go.

So here she is when she is playing shop and has dressed herself well picked the clothes out you might think she looks a little chunky, that is because she has 2 skirts on there is a denim one on underneath and that is Hamish's swimming hat she has teamed with a little shrug cardigan, she is a fashionista. Then there is her curls. The bubbly spa bath on our mini holiday, Dad put a bit of bubbles in and it goes a long way we nearly lost her in the bubbles but she loved them. And lastly feeding the birds in the Lamington National Park she thought that it would be a good idea to put the seed into the birds beaks for them (she is helpful) and wasn't bothered that they were on her head or arms.
