Our two daughters have birthdays in October. When I was pregnant with Elora, her due date was actually Georgia’s birthday! I’m glad I have my babies early :)
Elora’s birthday was on a Saturday. We had a morning tea party with some of her friends. It was a very nice morning! The children sat around the table eating their food with such good manners that it was as if they were grown ups enjoying a high tea! We went out for dinner that night too. She had the best day. She was so happy and excited all day!
Now that she’s four, Elora is desperate to be ‘a big girl.’ She likes to be very independent. She likes making her own breakfast; choosing her daily outfit and dressing herself; brushing her own hair and teeth; making her own bed (occasionally) and generally being helpful. She loves helping with cooking, all the time. She likes ‘reading’ to herself like the big kids, and she’s known to be reading copies of ‘Deadly Unna,’ ‘Great Expectations,’ and ‘Oliver Twist.’ Pretty funny!
Elora adores our cat Naigee, but unfortunately this is an unrequited love. She loves Jac too and she loves running around outside with him, exploring and picking flowers. Elora’s favourite colour is pink. Her favourite toy is still her giraffe Raffie, who I bought for her with Auntie Marie’s Christmas present money at the local post office about 3 years ago. Elora loves eating pineapple and spaghetti. And raw carrots.
Next February she will start school. She’s currently doing pre-kinder And loves it. My baby’s growing up!
Georgia’s eleven now. Eleven. Don’t let yourself think that the seven year gap between our daughters has any impact on the closeness of their relationship. These two are as thick as thieves. Georgia is at the cusp of being a teenager. She’s preparing for high school in 2016. She’s into her fashion; hairstyle experimentation; and beauty regime.
Georgie loves reading. She’s reading at a high school level, both with her interest of texts and her proficiency. She can recommended and choose books with ease and passion. I love taking the children to the library because she helps them choose books so well! In fact, her love of reading and books has led to her being the school library monitor. She’s also in charge of her class library.
When she turned eleven she celebrated with a pizza and movie party with a few friends. Such a lovely group of friends; it was a great celebration.
I’m so proud of the way my daughters are growing up. Thanks for humouring me whilst I totally brag about how awesome and fun they are!
