Misc Genna

Some fun random pics from last week

Oh yes - my bug - I do love him!

In her stroller - she was meant to be sleeping and when we peeked in she had grabbed the wrap I had used to cover the bottom of the stroller and was playing with it!


All snuggly


Hello lion!

She loves his colorful feet


Oh hello - just cooling off with my clothes off after a very hot spring day


Little Miss big eyes - love that blue!


She LOVES to pull herself up

I'm so strong I can almost sit up by myself


Playing in her chair with her bug - tongue all ready to go

Yummy

Trying out my new sleep sack - she didn't like it - shame cause it's nice and stretchy material and lets her have her arms up in a comfy position.

Week 12

Dear Genevieve,
This week you turned 12 weeks old!!You are so interested in everything that's going on around you these days

This is your usual pose now - clutching your hands together - hatching your plan for the day

You love to lick anything and everything as of this week - especially your hands! I often have pools of saliva dripping down my arm when I carry you around

You are my Little Miss Sunshine:) Even though this week you have decided you don't like to sleep during the day in your crib anymore, you are still a pretty happy little girl. I think you have just decided to push Mommy to lose the rest of her pregnancy weight by long daily walks so you can sleep on the move!

You also have fully mastered grasping onto toys (you also discovered how far you can stick your tongue out this week - here it is ready for the bug!)

Ohhhh yummmy

It's been a great week. Although I do really miss my daily naps, I was thrilled that you have shown us you can sleep 10 hours a night (it only happened twice - but at least we know it's possible)!

We have spent the last few days packing and organizing ourselves for our trip to America to meet Mommy's family. It's going to be quite a journey, but I think we'll be fine :)

Love,
Mama

Week 11

Dear Genevieve,
This week you turned 11 weeks old!
Today was a warm day, so once we got home we got down to the basics to cool off :)

My books says that whatever your eye color is this week, you are likely to have a shade of that color when it's eventually set when you are about a year old. Since your eyes are still blue I guess you got that from Daddy - yay!

You also got dressed up by Mommy a bit this week in some dresses - just for fun!

You are SO interested in your books this week. You are fully grabbing the pages now and bringing them to your mouth. You LOVE your puppy book!!!

You also LOVE your elephant and dog toy - I think it's because they have big eyes you can talk to. You look them straight in the eyes and talk away while grabbing at their paws - too cute.

You are getting soooooooooo long!

We know you're perfect, but don't forget you are also American and British :)

Down in Manly last weekend - all snuggled up in the baby bjorn carrier with Daddy

Kisses from Daddy

You love to pull your body sideways when I'm carrying you so you can see everything that's going on around you!

Daddy, Nanna, Mommy & you down by the beach - we stopped so you could have a bit to eat and you were so happy after you were full.

I do LOVE this giraffe hat :)

At the Beach

Genna loves just looking around at everyone

Stroking Mama's hand
Her double chin is coming along nicely:)

What's over there?

Time for my nap!

Week 10

Dear Genevieve,
This week you turned 10 weeks old!
We decided it was time to get some girly dresses out this week - just for fun!

Your hands continue to fascinate you. This week you have started grasping them together and you have started batting at books and toys!

You also have started to love studying your feet when you are sitting on my lap.

In the morning when I put you down for tummy time with your spot toy you squeal with delight - you love talking to your toys and you are REALLY starting to find your voice! You also LOVE your toys with eyes - you look straight at your dog and elephant & have a chat!

We made our way down to the beach this weekend and you loved your cuddle with Daddy

Squinty in the sun! We still had to wear a hat though as there is a bit of a chilly wind!

Out of your dress back at home, playing with your spot toy - I LOVE these cute little tights on you with the lace on the bum!

video

We were amazed to see you trying to stick your entire fist into your mouth this week!

But sometimes you just prefer a few fingers:) That wet spot on Mommy's top is from your breaks in hand sucking - my top works perfectly for wiping your hand off!

And your love affair with your zebra continues!
video

You even managed 8 hours of continuous sleep this week!! Amazing!

I love you lots my big girl:)
Love,
Mommy

Genna's Passports

Hmmm now which passport shall I choose today? My British, American or Australian?

British it is for today!

I do love being a citizen of three countries!

I think they match nicely with my first dress! :)
