Mothering Eden 008


Eden is getting so aware of things now. When he sees me drawing, he wants to sit by me in his high chair and draw alongside too.
He doesn't like drawing on paper as much as he loves drawing on the table, floor, walls and cupboards though...
Feelings: kinda proud, kinda stresses me out.
Good thing we'd received some washable crayons as a gift! I highly recommend those.
Orange colour however, for some reason, seems harder to wash out than others.
Got to put elbow grease into it.

Mothering Eden 007



I think we can safely say, we both look forward to snack time! 

Most days I make us a green smoothie. 
In it goes, 2-3 big handfuls of green veggies along with some mint leaves, coconut water, kefir, one green apple and either a tablespoon of Shillington's total nutritional powder or a spoonful of Garden of Life's green superfoods powder and a tablespoon of coconut oil, if I feel up to it. 
Some days I put a banana too, but most of the time I find that it makes the smoothie too sweet.

Today we had biscuits with avocados and cheese. Eden loves his biscuits.

Mothering Eden 006


Scene from our everyday life. Most likely more amusing for you than it is for me.

Mothering Eden 005




Some other days, I get to be a pilot too.

And if you've noticed, yes. There's an update to the momniform. 
Shaved my head. Oh yeah, breeze~

Mothering Eden 004


Before Eden was born, I decided I would most definitely not be one of those mums who allowed their kid any screen time.

Guess what. 
I am now that mum.

How can I not when it's such an excellent source of distraction? 
Oh mums I've judged before, I am so sorry. I totally get it.
Totally.
 
Downside to this is that he's making calls to remote countries like Senegal and people in my contact list and messaging random people random things (sometimes proper embarrassing words thanks to autocorrect) all in my name.

Mortifying.

Mothering Eden 003



Weekends are for dance offs. Back in the days we were known to have our own signature dance moves. Here's us working it.
Eden had his own too, which involves a move kinda like marching, until he saw his papa's and decided he'll claim it!

My little Daddy Jr.

Mothering Eden 002




Eden loves books, he can sit still and seemingly pore over them on his own.
He loves it even more when we read to him.

Sometimes we make melodies and tunes out of the illustrations in the stories.
He'll point to the pictures he knows we make music to and gestures for us to sing them.

If he knows the actions, he'll join in.
It's the most adorable thing.

We definitely have more books than toys around here!
