16 months and 1 day old

I am shocking at keeping records on when my second child did anything.

Mainly, I think, because this time around there is another responsible parent around and I figure I did it for the first, it is his job for the second.

That, and my memory just isn't the fireproof-safe it once upon a time was.

So when V asked me tonight "when did Paris first walk", my "umm, around 14 months" wasn't that convincing (especially when I have been claiming her as 16 months for about 8 weeks now - my maths works best in metric and these darned 12 month years trip me up).

However - however, I have sat down with all fingers and toes and worked out that she is FINALLY 16 months old (and 1 day) which, ironically, is EXACTLY the same age as 'Salina was when she was flowergirl at her aunt's wedding.

Of course, that would be a much better comparison if I actually had any photos on my computer of the occasion so you could see the huge difference between the two at that age - but alas, not to be (and while I could go into the office/junk room, hook up the computer to the printer, grab the photo off the dressing table, scan the photo and upload it, we are one day into a 5 day weekend here, and the sloth has set in) so you will have to wait.

In the interim, here is my latest favourite shot.

Happy Easter, all.

Oh that photo is GORGEOUS!!! Doesn't it make your heart sing?

Recording such events is part of the reason why I've been blogging so much lately. I've been rereading mine and am so glad I've recorded what I have. =)

(ANd no such baby books for either of my girls.Bad Mummy)

Beautiful girls. Salina looks so grownup and gorgeous.
Paris is adorable and that hat is the cutest.

I am so slack too at recording who did what when.
I guess the blog will tell that story in some way.

The pizza oven is making good progress( igloo structure is finished) and is half finished, have to get special insulation blanket stuff in Sydney, then render it all.

I've been a slack commenter too.
