Teeth, teeth and more teeth

I have six new dangerous weapons to chomp on Daddy's finger with. That's right - four teeth came through at the same time and hurt so much. But they don't hurt anymore as they are now through. Six down and 14 more to go - yikes!

Meeting some man called Santa

This week is Christmas ..... well so I've been told. I am not sure what this Christmas thing is all about but Mummy has made me sit on this strange man's lap - he wears a red suit and has a great white beard that I can pull! I did get my fingers stuck in it! I believe his name is Santa.

Here are some pics of Jackson and I sitting on this strange man's lap!

While I am on a roll with posts, I guess I should share my latest swimsuit model shots. Look out for the next cover of Babies Illustrated.

Olympics here I come

A few weeks ago I started swimming lessons with mummy - it is so much fun! I get to kick my legs everywhere, go under the water, pull down mummy's swimming cossie and smile at everyone else in the pool. I am exceptional at the last activity!

Look out Leisel Jones .............. Olympics here I come!

Here is a photo of me swimming for the very first time when I was on holidays recently in Noosa.

Busy bubba

It has been a while in between posts ....... you know how busy it is being a seven month old! I just don't know how I find the time to do anything these days. What with sleeping, eating, playing, sleeping, eating, playing, sleeping, eating, playing, sleeping, eating, playing ..... before I know it the day has just disappeared before my eyes.

I'm leaving on a jet plane

........ I don't know when I'll be back again! But luckily mummy and daddy do!

Next Tuesday ....... a long week from now ..... I am going on my first EVER plane ride. I don't know what a plane is yet, but my brother does. So I think he is a little more excited than I am.

It also means I am going on my first EVER holiday, my first EVER trip to the beach and my first EVER swim. Daddy bought me the cutest swimming costume when he was in America in May. I am going to be a beach babe!

I will be an expert swimmer by the time I come home, just in time to start my swimming lessons. That will be lots of fun. I LOVE bath time, so I am sure I will love swimming ...... just one big bathtub really.

I am a clever girl!

I'm moving up in the world ........ yes that's right I am a big girl and there's no stopping me!

Over the last few weeks my sitting abilities have improved and I now have enough balance to hold my own. I am pleased as punch!

Yum! Yum! Yum!

Two days I'm in and I'm loving solids! Well all I've had so far is rice cereal but I like having something other than milk. And the best bit .......... I get to chew on a spoon!

So what's next on the menu?

Toothy pegs!

Toothy pegs have arrived and are here to stay! My first tooth made its first appearance three days ago and my second started breaking through today.

It hurts so much and wish this pain would go away. I think this is only the beginning ....... well so I am told. Not sure I want to go through this again. Might just stick some glue on my gums to make sure no others get through!

Mummy tells me that Jackson beat me by one day all that time ago! Boo!

My brother Jackson is so funny. He makes me laugh and laugh and laugh!

Come and have a laugh with us!

5 months young!

I am 5 months old today! I think that now classifies me as a big girl! Well I like to think so anyway.

I can now squeal with delight, smile at anything and everything, pull mummy's hair really hard, roll from my tummy to my back (I've almost mastered my back to front!!), suck anything that is put in my hands, giggle at Jackson, laugh at mummy and daddy being silly, talk my own language and be generally cute! I am exceptionally good at the last one!

Cuddly teddy bear!

Mummy and Daddy bought me a new jacket recently and I love it. It is so warm and very cuddly. It even has teddy bear ears! I just have to show it off to you ......... hope you like it too!

Super trooper

Ok so there was only so many times I could postpone my jabs and today Mummy took me to see Dr Sue. Dr Sue is really nice ...... or so I thought until she pulled out these evil looking needles and stuck then in each of my legs. Now I'm not so sure.

Mummy said I was very brave - I didn't really cry at all and then I found it all very funny so I stared to chuckle. There must have been some happy medicine in the needle!

More jabs needed in two months time. I might need to figure out another avoidance plan again!

Master plan!

Hehehehehehehehe! My master plan is working! I was supposed to get my 4 month jabs a few weeks ago but couldn't because I got a cold ...... thanks Jackson!

So that got me thinking, if I let Jackson cuddle and kiss me lots, then he gives me all his daycare germs and I can keep putting off having my jabs.

It worked! Just as I got better, I got the flu = jabs postponed again. Sneaky hey!

My brother Jackson

I have a brother called Jackson - he is two years old. I really, really like him. He kisses and cuddles me lots and makes me laugh.

He isn't always nice to me though. He makes lots of tiger noises, which scare me. He also sometimes hits me with his toys and makes me cry.

But most of the time he is a good big brother.

Star at just 4 days old!

How many people can say they had their first professional photo shoot at four days old! Well I did and a picture of me with my mummy was in the newspaper - the Daily Telegraph on 1 April 2009.

They took lots and lots and lots of pictures ....... so many flashy things in my eyes. But I am use to it as mummy and daddy take lots of pictures of me as well.

You can read the articles here:

Why do you keep staring at me?

C'mon get out of my face. I've got some hand sucking to do.

Books all about me!

Mummy read me a book the other day and it was all about me! Apparently there are lots of them - how exciting! I only have two of the books mummy has had since she was a little girl. That must have been a century ago cos mummy is old.

I am so happy today!

I'm just so happy today! I love my toys. This world is so great - I might just stick around for some more fun!

Jackson has some pretty cool toys that I have my eye on. The problem is I haven't figured out how to get to them yet. Look out - I will don't you worry!

Pretty pictures on my walls

I am so excited! I have some new pictures for my bedroom walls with lots of butterflies, bees and ladybirds!! Lots of pretty colours - my bedroom doesn't look like a boys room anymore. That's coz I'm a girl!

This is my story

My name is Madeline Lucy Keen and this is my story. Mummy thought it was a good idea for me to start a blog to keep all of my lovely friends and family up to date with what I am up to and to capture any exciting things that I might do!

In case you didn't already know, I was born on 28 March 2009, so that makes me just over 3 months old! Apparently I am very cute - I have been told many times!!

I discovered my hands recently - they are sooooo much fun! I can stick them in my mouth, touch mummy and daddy's faces and hold on to these animal thingys that hang down from my play centre. I like hands!

I'm still figuring out what this whole world thing is all about, but so far it's pretty cool!

When I was just a few moments old with my mummy and daddy.........

This is me discovering my wonderful hands.........

This is me just recently............
