Regents Park and the beginning of Spring

It was spitting rain as I took these photos a few days ago. We were meeting friends for a walk through the park. Eddie notices the scampering squirrels and people's dogs. Although there are hundreds of birds at Regents Park he seems more interested in furry, scurrying things than feathery, beaked things.

Jeta's party yesterday

Jeta's 1st birthday at 'gymboree' in bayswater, was fun! Cake and champagne for the adults and an amazing play gym for the children. Eddie met Jeta at baby yoga.

Eddie was a little unsure at first - and not as interested in the play gear as one might expect - but soon he began to explore... although he seemed to enjoy climbing up dad as much as anything else!

Eddie's favourite spot

Eddie loves to rummage through the recycling, assorted bottles and boxes, next to our kitchen bin. It's also right next to the mesmerising washing machine. I really should mop our kitchen floor more often.

The Sensory Room

Monday mornings mean 'Baby Fun' in the Sensory Room at the Portman Early Childhood Centre. Today Eddie and I had the room to ourselves for a while so I took some snaps to give you an idea of how cool it is in there. I've done the formal training to use the room, so I can officially turn on all the lovely UV lights, bubbly tubes, slide-shows, disco ball, flashing fibreoptics, tactile panel, infinity hut, dolphin music etc. etc. Us mums love it as much as the babies.

By the way, Eddie is not well at the moment... very unhappy with a nagging cold, thus the rather plaintive look up at the photographer. He has gone off his food, even his *favourite* rice cakes. Hopefully the coming of Spring will help sort him out.

Breaking the Rules

These naughty boys... breaking probably the only rule at Paddington Gardens. On a beautiful winter Sunday afternoon.

Most beautiful toy store in the world...?

On the Kings Road, Chelsea, is 'Daisy and Tom', a gorgeous children's store. It has a carousel and hairdresser inside the actual store, and is jam-packed full of goodies for babies and kids. Here's Eddie enjoying some of 'Daisy and Tom's' magic, as well as a well-earned rice cake.

Camberwell toasts Eddie

Thank you Aunt Becca for this photo... I may not do postcards yet Rachel, but I do make 'Home Made Dishes' for our very own Eddie's cafe here at home... last night however, he did not eat my fish, potato and pea delight (which Tom was bravely trying to feed him)...maybe it was in sympathy for mummy, who was hit with a PAINFUL and violent stomach bug... lasting all night.... still haven't dared to eat a thing...

Marylebone toasts Eddie

Found another cafe in honour of Eddie, just a few streets away from us... I wonder if they do Baby Bolognase...

Hackney toasts Eddie

Thanks to Kathryn Hatfield for this image... watch out for Kathryn's newly printed postcards featuring sights of Hackney (sadly not including Eddie's cafe, but including places like Columbia Road flower market, Hackney Empire, London Fields, etc). If you are interested in purchasing a postcard let me know... always happy to be the middle man...
