Iggy + Melan went on a coffee date at Slinky, Malika and I were also invited to chaperone them.. ;) One of the best cafe’s in Brisbane and very kid friendly. I highly recommend the extra cheesy scrambled eggs on sourdough and a bowl size mocha. There is park across the road but we didn’t even get to it as Melan + Iggy were too busy chasing after one another ^_^
Grandma found her ‘walking doll’ from when she was a child, it might be the freakiest doll I have ever seen.. It has long human hair and when you hold its arms and push forward she walks and moves her head and blinks her eyes.. It lived for a short period of time on the couch until Pa had several heart attacks thinking a small child was sitting in the living room. Iggy could NOT work it out and thought the doll was real, she sat near it nervously waving and talking to her for over 10 minutes.
Juliet asked her Pa if he could help make her a couch and bed for her dollhouse that she had resurrected from the shed over the school holidays. Pa and Grandma invited her down for a sleepover and they wasted no time in making her requests with her watching over eagerly and full of excited squeals as she watched Pa create her drawings. Grandma helped her create cushions, bed spread (out of Stevens Smurf pillowcase from when he was a young boy) and table clothes with sewn in doilies ^_^ Oh and don’t forget the individually glued on magazine covers on the 10c piece sized books for her bookshelf. There is also a full bathroom, kitchen, fish tank and iPod holder for her dolls to watch tv with.
Every morning I have been woken by Juliet giggling away in her bedroom making movies with the iPod of her dolls in their house..
There are more moments lately that I can see she is growing up and I worry she will be too cool for school soon, but witnessing her innocent, beautiful, creative imagination at play with her old doll house makes my heart do backflips and know she will be just fine <3
