This afternoon the lovely Marji organised a brilliant baby Halloween party in her building. There were about thirty babies and their parents so it was quite a squeeze but brilliant fun. Rory dressed up as a little skeleton and enjoyed checking out his friends’ outfits. O and I made small bags of salted caramel popcorn and packaged them in little Halloween cellophane bags with orange ribbon. A great way to celebrate Halloween.
This morning I went to get my haircut with the talented Alan at Bumble and Bumble. O and Rory came with me as we were meeting uncle Henry and Nick for brunch at Soho House afterwards. Rory waited upstairs with daddy and enjoyed spectacular views of the snow storm happening outside. He was incredibly well behaved, crawling and exploring and being admired by all the staff who said he was welcome back anytime.
Today Rory and I were lucky enough to hang out with the gorgeous Lisa in our neighbourhood. After delicious elevensies (tea with caramel pecan brownies) we went for a walk around the park and perused the shops (I’m loving all of the winter interiors). We had a scrumptious lunch from Rice and finished off with a spot of afternoon tea. A lovely, lovely day.
Rory and I have had an incredibly busy day today. We enjoyed a lovely play morning with Carmalisa and Sienna (who Rory loved to follow around) followed by another play date in the afternoon with Christine and Gracie. I finished the day by hosting an intimate dinner party for three (Victoria, O and me) where I cooked a yummy roast. A busy but great day.
My latest Rory purchase is from baby lit; a baby version of Pride and Prejudice and Romeo and Juliet. We’re both mildly obsessed with it (me as how to turn two of my favorite classics into a baby board book, Rory with the beautiful illustrations). We haven’t stopped reading them since.
A chilled day at the park followed by our usual lovely music class; Music Together. Rory is particularly loving the tambourine and egg shakers. I love Tuesdays.
Being slightly obsessed with anything that has a wheel attached, I purchased this lovely little wooden dumper truck for Rory from lovely brand Educo.
This morning Rory got to hang out with his bestie, Mia, when both families headed to Almar for brunch. The babies sat next to each other and enjoyed watching exactly what the other one was doing, giggling at each other and trying to out do each other on the eating solids front. Mia won but I have a feeling a rematch will be happening very soon.
