Today was ballet day and these two went matchy-matchy! I don't always match their outfits intentionally but sometimes it's just so much fun & I can't help myself! Eduardo doesn't attend the ballet class but he likes to come along for the ride and eats his mid-morning snack in the adjoining cafe. (I think he'd secretly love to take part though...future Billy Elliot perhaps?!) Emilia wore her red tutu (which is getting too small!) from Belle Vintage Boutique, cream tights, a cream cardigan from Il Gufo and gold shoes from Zara. Eduardo wore a red top from Benetton, blue jeans from River Island and his shoes are from Clarks.
I've been working hard at getting everything ready for my jewellery launch (Monday the 23rd of November...eek!!) and this includes sourcing old pictures of me with my dad. I asked my mum to send me a few and she threw in a couple of randoms. Here's one of me when I was about...four? I think? Giving my "don't mess with me" look which Emilia does A LOT! Ha ha ha! Her personality reminds me of myself as a child SO MUCH. We were joking about this today actually as Eduardo was very emotional and clingy after his nap. I was getting frustrated because I literally could not get anything done as he would whinge every time I moved away from him and cling to my leg. Jonathan said "aww the poor little guy, he's feeling under the weather. He just needs extra attention...he doesn't cope very well with this sort of thing" We both looked at each other and I rolled my eyes and said "yeah, like SOMEONE we all know" (Jonathan is currently suffering with man flu and acting like the end is nigh) and we instantly burst out laughing. I know most people say Emilia looks like her daddy and Eduardo like me but in terms of personality the opposite applies! Jonathan was actually a whole lot more sensitive & quieter than me as a child - I was pretty independent and loved being the centre of attention...now who does that remind you of?! This is why I love my sassy girl & sweet boy, they are both so special in their own way!
