Yesterday, our cute little neice and Austy's much loved cousin Elizabeth (or "Lizzi-Biff" as he calls her... hey, it used to be just plain "Biff"!) grew into a 2yr old! For her birthday she grew a tiny curl on her almost hairless head, and her Mum is certainly pleased, having worried she'd be bald for the rest of her life, especially after Austy had his 5th haircut on Friday!(sob - DH had his cute little clown curls chopped off!) However what she lacks in hair she certainly makes up for with character and cuteness, she loves to play Mummy and is often trying to feed Austy or hold his drink for him, while he likes to play baby and happily oblidges. So what else would I give her but a little doll quilt of course!
But DH had no faith in me, and told me to go and buy her a "real present" so Austy and I went out on Friday morning and picked out this tea set while DH played golf. I had already named the quilt, and wanted a little tea set to go with it. I nearly came back empty handed, until the sales lady steered me away from the super pink girls toy section (that seemed like a totally different world to me!) and into the much safer toddler section, where the Fisher Price musical tea set smiled at me and yelled "pick me, pick me!" It was perfect, and even kept Austy amused while I clothes shopped, as he kept pressing the teapot and singing along "I'm a little teapot, short and stout..."
So here they are, Elizabeth, Austy and second cousin Mackenzie celebrating together on teh little quilt I gave her.
And a few of you were wondering what happened on dress-up day... Well it poured with rain here, and DH isn't all that good with the camera indoors. Austy was all hyper from being trapped indoors, and made it even harder for him to get a good shot while I was at work (he only goes to childcare for the afternoon session just before DH leaves for work). So here is about the best shot we have for now, waiting for a nice sunny weekend when we can play dress-ups again and I can get snap happy myself.
