audrey… thats who, and just quietly, im kind of freaking out about it!
at 7 she loved all things steiner ~ she goes to a steiner school so thats hardly surprising… she loved handcrafted dolls, woolen and felt toys (unicorns, gnomies, animals, mother earth etc), collecting treasures from nature (flowers, stones, shells, pine cones, leaves, gems etc), painting with watercolours and drawing with pencils, reading beautiful picture books…
at 8 she still likes all of the above but she loves things that seem far too grown up… her apple mac, taking photos and giving me lots of advice on how i could improve my own photography, blogging, ipods (and all the games that go with that – bakery story, zoo story, farm story, angry birds etc), the wii, collecting blythe dolls and kimmi dolls, drawing with texta, reading chapter books… the list just goes on and on!
last year we had a pony party. the kids had a pony each. they groomed them and decorated them with ribbons. they had little races and played fun games. i made a horse cake.
this year we are having a photo booth party! everyone will take turns being the photographer, the model, doing the hair… audrey wants a camera cake… what?
the last year has to be the biggest change ive ever seen in her! my lulu belle is no longer my bubba, even though i often still call her that several times a day! she is so grown up! i must confess, its all just a little scary… does anyone else feel like this or is it just me?
here is a little sneak peek of her birthday invite ive been working on tonight which is got me thinking about all of the above! check back in a few weeks to see photos from the big day cause im sure they will be super cute! rowe xxx
