• Eliza, 11 months (and three weeks!)

    January 24, 2013

    It seems I’ve blinked and all of a sudden we have a mini toddler in our midst. A really nearly one-year-old. And she is just brilliant at this age; a complete and utter joy. I do a lot of looking at her, wondering where this tiny little constantly moving creature emerged from. She’s full of…

Anyway, here’s a conversation which took place today, with…

  • Cow / baby

    Eliza in her Cowshed baby towel (from my Shiny Red workmates). Possibly one of the cutest things ever; also, one of my favourite photos of her so far.

    Here’s Eliza and her new BFF, Russell the Wombat, who has just made his way over from Melbourne. He is brilliant; thank you so much Alex and Hannah!
