Talking about talking

Stella is now 22 months old and still not talking. It is probably a good time to provide the back story for the sake of record keeping. I have only mentioned Stella’s speech a few times on the blog, back when she was 9 months old and Amy started preschool for the first time I […]

Stella is 16 months and 2 weeks old

Stella is 16 months and 2 weeks old. She has 12 teeth which is two less than Amy at this age (but that is another post for another day.) She sleeps from 7pm until 6.30am and has a dummy but isn’t as attached to it as her sister was. Stella likes to climb and hide behind things. She […]

Amy – assessment 4 years 1 month

Seriously. I just can’t seem to keep up with the weeks right now, but thankfully I am home tonight for the first time in over a week. I am just so busy with photography, playgroup committee, preschool talks and endless tasks to do with my photography business, which is coming, I promise. Its just the […]

A will as strong as steel

This is a face we are very familar with. The face of a Stella who wants something she can’t have. Or shouldn’t have. This child is wilful, strong, obstinate and adorable in equal doses. Thankfully we have the adorable to counterbalance the other more negative personality traits. Its very interesting to me to watch my […]

My first born – Amy at 3 years 10 months

I interrupt the recently scheduled holiday recap for a post about my eldest daughter. I need to talk about Amy because this child has been a complete mystery to me over the last few weeks. Before we left for WA we were having a really hard time with Amy. All the small things that we had taken […]

Happy Birthday my precious Stella

My precious Stella, today you are One. Today is the anniversary of the day that we met you for the first time although in the instant of meeting you it was as though I had known you always. I think back to those days before you arrived and I marvel that it was you inside […]

Stella is nine months old – an update

Stella is nine months old. Her seven month milestone passed in a frantic blur as I tried to get organised for our holiday to South Africa. She celebrated by getting herself up onto all fours from lying on her stomach. I was convinced she would crawl immediately but she waited for her eight month birthday […]

Stella is seven months old

Stella was 7 months old on Sunday. She now weighs 9.35kgs and this morning she started getting up onto all fours, my guess is another week and she will be crawling. Stella is recovering from her horrible cough, less coughing and more sleeping is occuring which is very nice. She is also still teething, two […]

Amy – 4 years 4 months – not afraid at all

Amy has been going through an incredible stage of self-development recently. She has questions for me on everything and anything and will not let up asking until I give her an answer that satisfies her. We have talked about photosynthesis, inflated objects such as tires, coal trains and people in wheelchairs. We talk about how […]

Teeth – 6 months 2 weeks and 2 days

Guess who got her first tooth today? At six months, two weeks and two days. That would be Stella of course, although for the purists amoung you this photo is actually of Amy’s first tooth, taken when she was five months and one week. I didn’t try and get a photo of Stella today, the […]

Another Stella milestone – rolling in her cot – 6 months 2 weeks

This is what I found this morning when I went in 20 minutes after putting Stella down for her first nap of the day. She had been making some noises for a few minutes, nothing too dramatic, nothing to make me think this TERRIBLE DISASTER was unfurling. She wasn’t unhappy at all, in fact she […]

Stella is six months old

Stella, you are six months old. You roll over from your back onto your tummy and play happily for ages. You can sit up for long periods now, although I do make sure there are lots of cushions around you incase you face plant. You are still not a big fan of solid food and […]

Food – the first week – a recap

As I have mentioned numerous times, for various reasons I wanted to hold off starting Stella on solid food. A big reason was probably the most selfish one, that I want her to remain my little baby for as long as possible and starting her on food meant that she no longer needed me as […]

Stella’s first taste of food – 5 months 2 weeks 5 days

Stella didn’t think much of the rice cereal or the pear. Hmmm. Better luck tomorrow I hope. In other news she is waking twice a night for a feed again. Sigh.

Talking about one of my favourite things – FOOD

Stella is 5 months and 2 weeks and starting to track our cutlery from plate to mouth. She watches me like a hawk when I drink my morning coffee and then this afternoon she made me feel downright uncomfortable while I was enjoying a chocolate biscuit. All this combined with the fact that she is […]

Stella and the giraffe – 5 months old

Stella’s 5 month stats are as follows: Weight: 8.7kgs or 19.2lbs which is off the percentile chart! Length: 67cms or 26 inches which is on the 95th percentile Head circumference: 43cms or 16.9 inches which is on the 90th percentile. As of 5 months 1 week and 2 days we have still not started Stella […]

Stella is 5 months old

There have been a lot of changes in the last few weeks, there is very little of that tiny baby about Stella now that she is growing and filling out. The comparison photos show that Stella’s body is lengthening and her legs are getting longer too. She still has gorgeous chubby thighs and recently with […]

Stella on the giraffe – 4 months old
Stella is 15 weeks and 4 days

People keep asking me how old Stella is and I say three months but in fact she is closer to four months. I will say it again but I just can’t believe how fast time is flying by. Yesterday was my Mum’s 60th birthday. I wish we could all be there to celebrate with her […]

Its time for an Amy update – 3 years old

Amy – now you are three and its time to write a little update for posterity’s sake. Your life has changed a great deal over the last few months with the arrival of your baby sister, Stella. Although you are often upset with Mummy, you always tell your sister how much you love her and […]

Stella on the giraffe rug

Stella turns three calender months old tomorrow. I cannot believe my tiny baby is growing so fast. Really though, like I can’t actually believe she is growing even though I keep putting away clothes she doesn’t fit into. So I took the above photo for a comparison. Look at how much longer her body is! […]

Stella is 12 weeks

Stella at 12 weeks. We have just turned a corner with the sleeping, Stella has done five nights in a row with only one feed between going down at around 7pm and waking at around 7am. Friday the 10th July 2009 Stella had her first night sleep on only one feed and I thought it […]

Stella is 10 weeks old

Stella at 10 weeks – developmental milestones & growth spurts. Its been a hard week. My sister left at 6am on Monday morning, the day I turned 33. Birthdays don’t have much meaning or relevance to me since having children. I can’t really get that enthusiastic which is a little sad especially since Ron has […]

Stella is 8 weeks old – Part III

Stella Margaret White at 8 weeks old – Part III, the conclusion. In conclusion I can deduce from all these numbers and statistics that Stella is a healthy, happy, well fed baby who continues to grow and thrive under our constant care. Phew. Breathe a sigh of relief! I had to answer a standard post-partum […]
