Purple Texta

Evie loves to join in with the bigger kids when it's craft time.

I must remember not to leave her alone with the textas, especially purple ones.

It took a long time to get all the purple out of her mouth, especially off her teeth.

Aveeno Baby - Product Review

I was recently given several different types of baby products to try and I decided rather than try them all at once I would try each one for several weeks so I would really know what they were like.

For the past few weeks I have been using Aveeno baby products on my two girls and I like the products so much I will keep using them when my trial products have run out.

Evelyn tends to have dry skin so I love that all Aveeno Baby products are hypoallergenic, making them suitable for use on babies and infants with dry or sensitive skin. I found that when I used a wash and a moisture lotion the combination definitely improved the condition of Evelyn's skin.

In fact, I was so impressed that I have started using the Daily Moisture Lotion on my own arms and legs as they get terribly dry at this time of year (I blame the air conditioner and my electric blanket for drying them out).

Of all the products in the range Annabelle loves the smell of the wash and shampoo the best and she always asks me if she can wash Evelyn's hair for her. Luckily Evie is tolerant - to a point - and mostly lets her do it.

We like Aveeno baby so much we recently bought the soothing relief creamy wash and moisture cream to put with a gift for a friend's newborn baby.

My Happy Little Wanderer

My baby is growing up so fast.

Evie likes to do what the big kids do and I stopped using a high chair a long time ago as she wanted to sit at the table with everyone else, she doesn't want to be my baby any more.

As for being out outside, once I open the back door she is off to investigate the backyard. On days that I am working she will watch what the bigger kids are doing and she often tries to copy them.

While Evie loves company she is also happy to be by herself and she often wanders around the backyard looking at the plants or playing with toys.

Some days she is so busy I can't get her to stand still long enough to take her photo!

Having two young children means I have no choice but to get out of bed early. Yesterday I was awake before they were, which is very unusual, so I made the most of the silence as I knew it wouldn't last long.

I decided to have my morning coffee on my back deck and I was able to watch a gorgeous sunrise.

Sunset was pretty impressive last night too!
