Lyra mostly has a healthy appetite. She especially loves strawberries and blueberries, though she won't turn down a watermelon or an apple.

Sometimes the first thing she does in the morning is to turn over and blow a raspberry on her mother's arm.

A New Carrier for Babies

The old "Mai Tai" thingy has outlived its usefulness. Lyra in the good old days would fall asleep but now she just gets a bit squished and tries to escape.

So we have procured a new thingummy which has a frame and a seat and dinky under-seat storage. Lyra can see where she's going and the weight is distributed sympathetically.

Crazy Hair Day

Special efforts for crazy hair, literally minutes in the planning. Eloise wanted a mohawk, and she got a kind of loosely mohawk-shaped thing made from heavily treated plaity things, which she was understandably pleased with. She did have to get up super early on an already early Friday morning to get it done and still be at school on time for orchestra at 7.45 and needless to say bikes were out of the question as you couldn't get a bike helmet on top of that!
