Just because it's been a while

Thought I had better post just to reassure you all that I haven't dropped off the face of the earth. Life with my big kids back at school has been incredibly busy and I am struggling to find the time to do regular things like the ironing (urgh), let alone updating my poor neglected blog! Anyway, bubby is in bed for her morning nap and I am relatively up to date with my chores, so here 'tis. The divine Miss A grows and changes with every passing day. She is becoming much more vocal and now says 'nana' for banana, 'bye bye' (whilst waving), 'Daddy', 'Mummy', 'jie jie', 'num yum' (for yummy) and 'bo bo' (bot bot) for bottle. She is such a funny little thing that she cracks me up on a daily basis. Her personality is shining right through now, and she really is a kid with 'tude! We were discussing on Rumour Queen this morning about babies with 'tude, and are all agreed that our precious Chinese princesses have hit 'that' age where they begin to assert their independence. With this comes a corresponding increase in 'tude. Alice has what we call her 'filth look'. This look is produced anytime we say 'no', or if she simply doesn't want to do what I am trying to get her to do (like, for example, EAT!) She frowns, peers out from under her brows and almost sneers. Very attractive! Unfortunately for her it doesn't have the desired effect as I always end up laughing when she does it. Poor baby - can't even stare Mum down with the 'filth look'.

I will try to put some new pics in the slide show for you all. Louanne - make sure you take care when you head off on your Excellent Adventure and take HEAPS of pictures!!

The "look" comment is hilarious.

4 months - gosh it's gone so fast in one was and slow in another. That's life with a little one around. Sounds like the gorgeous Miss A is going to well and truly run the house eventually - I love that her 'sneer' makes you laugh - you make me remember back to when Ebony was doing that. She gave up! Now I get lots and lots of smiles and very, very few bad faces (no doubt that will change though!). Bless you xxx Jen & Ebony
