  • Fav toys: baby dolls, card board boxes,  toy cell phones/telephones, plastic beaded necklaces, anything with a screen- tv, cell phone, computer, whatever, toy remote control
  • Fav activities: carrying her baby (who she affectionately calls ‘bubba’) around and loving it/ looking at pictures (especially of babies)/ tearing out pictures of babies in my old maternity magazines and bringing them to me (noticing a trend yet?)/ watching TV/ eating/ sleeping/ play dough/ playing in puddles or the dogs water bowl/ roaming around outside/ playing in the dirt or sand/ reading books/ playing with Blake
  • General temperament: easy going, silly, energetic, independent, affectionate, resilient, determined, cautious of strangers but very warm to those she’s familiar with, takes a while to warm up in a new environment, initially gets overwhelmed in a large crowd of children/ excitable
  • Keena Zoey means: bold and courageous (Keena) & life giving (Zoey)
Blake

  • Fav foods:  yogurt, carrots, raisins, cream cheese, fresh rye bread, pears, strawberries, bananas, tea, oatmeal (with banana, honey & cinnamon), homemade granola bars, banana bread, cheese, rice crackers, avocado, biltong (jerky), tuna in mayo, water
  • Fav toys: books (especially touch and feel ones), balls, cars, her little motor bike, duplo, toy cell phones/ telephones, toy car remote,
  • Fav activities: putting shapes into the correct shaped hole/ climbing/ ‘reading’ or being read too/ riding her motor bike (aka me pushing her around on it)/ anything that involves her being spun around, hung up-side-down, pulled around, thrown in the air or chased/ hide-n-go-seek (it’s always me hiding at this point)/ trying new foods (this kid will eat anything!)/ playing with Keena
  • General temperament: outgoing, friendly, likes to be near other people, dramatic, feisty, affectionate on her terms, curious,contagious laugh, mischievous/ observant/ excitable/ slight perfectionist (She didn’t attempt any of the bigger milestones like rolling over, sitting, crawling or walking until she’d watched Keena try and fail for at least a week if not longer. She’s mostly ‘just starting crawling/walking/whatever’ without any of the preliminary ‘practice’. It’s as if she didn’t want to try until she felt confident she could do it right the first time.),
  • Blake Adelaide means: bright and transparent (Blake) & noble (Adelaide)
So that’s the low down on my little people, my tiny posy. They’re too freaking cute man! Freaking cute is…
