I really should take that last photo again and flip her on her tummy, should I?
Juliet Willa (J Willa as she's become known around here) is 3 months old. I know, I can't believe it either! She's a darling and we love her beautiful smile, her constant chatter and her amazingly laid back disposition. Seriously - zen should be her middle name. Which has me thinking that we might try to have another baby.
Am I insane? Probably... I am trying to answer that question at the moment. There's a lot of indecision around here at the moment.

This beautiful tree is in the Fitzroy Gardens in Melbourne just a short stroll from Captain Cook's Cottage (which apparently isn't really the home he grew up in - but that's another post) and if you happen to have a 7 year old who fervently believes in fairies it is the most wonderful thing you could hope to find on a cold and grey Sunday morning.
The plaque at the base of the tree reads:
"I have carved in a tree in the Fitzroy Gardens for you, and the fairies, but mostly for the fairies and those who believe in them, for they will understand it is necessary to have a fairy sanctuary - a place that is sacred and safe as a home should be to all living creatures." --Ola Cohn 1934-- Australian sculpter and artist.
Here are some of my favourite carvings;
