Bath Time

How is bath time with your little one? Here it's pretty easy to get Billie in the bath. She loves playing with her water toys and she could stay in there for hours. The only big problem is when it comes to wash her hair and her ears. First, she refuses to put the back of her head in the water so we have to use the most hard core way to rinse her hair- we poor water from a plastic box over her head. Of course she hates it. She gets water in her eyes plus even if I tell her I am about to do it, it always feels like the biggest suprises for her. I feel like a horrible mother doing this to her. 

Then the ears... Well, maybe this part is my fault. When she was a baby, I was always cleaning her ears. I'm obsess with clean ears. That's one of my thing. I can't help but making sure her ears are clean... Well, i'm paying now because we can't even touch her ears without her saying a big NO and pushing the towel away. Poor Billie... But I guess and hope all these things will be forgotten when she gets older. I'm also thinking of subscribing to swimming lessons with her so she would stop being scare of putting her head in the water during bath time. Any experience with that?

Photoshoot at Nick Lafontaine's studio

Billie recently played the super model for UNICORN's online shop. We did a photoshoot at NICK LAFONTAINE's studio to shoot TAMÉ's leggings. It was a very fun and suprising experience. She got so shy in front of the camera but we managed to get few good shots.

All she wanted was to run into my arms. She also kept on sticking her tongue out because she was shy! It was still very cute and she managed like a pro. Not sure she loved the photo shoot session but I'm happy she got to experiment it. I think it was also one of the first time I got to see her shy in front of people. It was just the beginning because she now acts the same when I leave her at day care. It only last 1 or 2 minutes but it cracks me up!  She is definitely more aware of herself and others now.

For those of you who found out about my blog through ELLE QUEBEC, I owe you all an apology! Well, I have not posted anything on this blog since maybe 3-4 months (the interview was made at the beginning of August). Not that I dont want to blog anymore but I got very busy at work (UNICORN) and also, Billie grew up and its harder and harder to find time to write and take nice photos.

Though, I received few emails about me not blogging anymore and to be honest, it motivated me to start again. I'll try to keep you posted about our clothing discoveries, Billie's exciting growing adventures and our life in general, on a more regular basis.
