A nice week

Saturday we stopped at the bakery on the way to Manly to pick up a few things, and you picked out a gingerbread cookie

Later you also enjoyed a baby chino - fun to have some treats :)

Yummmmmm (just frothed milk with a chocolate powder sprinkled on top)

mixing mixing

and the last sip! yummy

and playing 'neigh' with aunty Helen

Such a Pretty girl :) You LOVE this lady bug top (I refuse to say lady bird like they say here - it's a bug! but yes I agree, they do fly like a bird :)

Waiting for the guests to arrive to our 'tea party' on Sunday

TOUCH! I loaded a new game called 'hatch' where if she touches the egg a few time it hatches

oh WOW what is it?

Half way through the party - MANY cakes eaten - but MANY still to go! (everyone brought something)

The tea selection plate -only a few left (there were MANY MANY flavors).
Everyone sampled quite a few which was fun!

How bad are we though? Helen and I were SO busy chatting to people (and eating cakes) that we forgot to take any other photos!!! Oh well, it was a lovely day - 9 people came & lots of babies and LOTS of amazing baked goods. The only person who didn't have a great time was Genna. She was NOT happy about people touching her toys.... and spent most of the afternoon sitting on her sofa, with Amelia nearby, just watching everyone.

However once everyone left......
She jumped into the ball pit
and had a BLAST
We were pulling her around the house with her lying in the pool like this - SO SO fun

This week we got a few packages - she opened the box and said WOW then immediately started cuddling her new puppy bag (Thank You Denise!)


She now has to have her new puppy as well as baba with her when she goes to bed. She hugs them both to her chest - so sweet!

Oh and some fun new clothes - check out how she put 2 pairs of shorts on! (Thanks Grandma & Grandpa!)

Princess Genevieve (and her new bookshelf - assembled by Mama)

and in her cool new Minnesota hat!

oh I LOVE being able to see all my books now!

Bunny in the hat - cute

Last week, on our day off (Wednesdays), we started swimming lessons again. It was the BEST decision. You absolutely LOVE swimming - you have this HUGE smile on your face the entire time. We do all sorts of fun activities, and you especially love the last bit where they have a big long mat that everyone is along side of, and one by one the instructor places you on top of the mat standing, and Mama waits on the other side so you can run to me and leap into the water. You love it because everyone cheers your name saying 'GO Genevieve.' It's SO much fun!!

Yesterday, in the afternoon, after swimming and a nap - we thought some painting would be fun!

bubble bubble bubble (is what you said while doing this)

I only showed you how to do this roller brush once, then you were ALL over it! (notice the 'concentration tongue')

and some Finger painting!!! Messy and FUN!

Paint paint paint (warning - this is a Long video!)

Also, I just need to brag, that you can count to 10!!!
It's amazing - you are such a smarty pants :)


  1. No need to worry about long videos... I could watch all day long! What an artist!!
    Love you all,

  2. Okay.....two favorite things; the photo of Genna in the little pool with all the colored balls!!! Double pretty! And the painting video with Genna announcing "Ta Da"! as she paints her masterpieces! Too cute!
    Great Auntie Jani
