28-06-20 Twins: Visiting Kara-Louise

Sunday 28th June 2020

A weekend full of visits. Today its to Burraneer and the Hamptons style home Michael built for Kara-Louise. The back yard blew me and all 3 kids away with its proportions, green spaces, walls of trees, privacy, lawn. The babies took to the grassed area immediately sans shoes and played with Addison the family pooch.

At first I thought Keanu wouldn’t cope with the visit since he refused his mid morning nap. Not taking his nap is the number one source of anxiety for me. But he coped well, if sometimes stumbling from delirium.

Food intake was not an issue for the twins as both enjoyed being fed by hand with all parties having their turn to give both chicken, lamb, watermelon, cheese, bread and dessert. Actually my dessert! Orange, walnut, turmeric and yoghurt cake in fact!

Keanu stole the show first half by pointing adamantly at the selection of entrees, each piece we’d present he rejected. It wasn’t crackers, cheese, kiwi fruit or ham he desired, it was strawberries. Margot called it! The baby wants a strawberry. And on a low step he sat to eat three.
