Annabelle loves the little owl, Hoot, from the ABC TV show Giggle and Hoot.

When she turned two recently her day care Mum made a Hoot cake topper for her birthday cake - and she did a fantastic job!

I decided to try my hand at making Annabelle a soft toy inspired by Hoot and I'm quite pleased with how he's turned out - she must like him too as she takes him to bed at night!

May the Force be with you

Most little girls use pretty dolls in their dollhouse.

Not mine.

Mine uses Star Wars figurines.

While I do let her play with this Leia figurine I put away my original Leia's which I've had since 1979.

Yep, I'm such a nerd!

I hope she grows up to like Sci Fi like her mama.

Sleepy Head

Annabelle normally goes to bed at 7pm, straight after the goodnight song from Hoot, and then we read her a book (or two) and then it's lights out.

Once Annabelle is in bed we normally have some play time with Evelyn before her last bottle, except for a few nights ago when Evie was obviously more tired than I realised.

I read Annabelle a story and came back into the lounge room to find Evie fast asleep in her bumbo seat - thank goodness she didn't fall out!

Doesn't look real comfortable does it!

Evie is now sitting up by herself and I'm sure it won't be long before she's crawling as she keeps rolling herself onto her tummy - she puts her arms and legs in the right position but she just hasn't got momentum yet.

My babies are growing up so quickly!

My big girl!

At the end of August Annabelle turned 2 years old.

Two already.

I can't believe it!

I opted for a morning tea at her day care rather than a weekend birthday party.

On her actual birthday she had a play date in the morning with her cousins followed by cake in the evening with the family.

We had a lovely day.
