Baby of the week: tongue poking Meya Lamont-Turner

The Area News baby of the week is eight-month-old Meya Lamont-Turner

Dressed in a pink top and pink beanie at Griffith City Library’s baby bounce, Meya loves the camera. 

Meya has been going to baby bounce since she was three months old, and always features in our online weekly gallery. 

Her dad Brendan is a fork lift driver, and mum Emma Slattery is a barista. 

Her tongue [is the best thing about Meya]. She was born with her tongue out, and loves sticking it out at people.

Three other babies who stood out at Griffith City Library’s baby bounce on October 10 were: 

Arlo Gray – a former baby of the week who was smiling and dancing away with grandma Yia.

Stephanie Young – a regular at baby bounce, who keeps people guessing on which family member she takes along to dance with her. This time her mum Justine was there, rather than Dad or her granddad. 

Stevie–Leigh Apolloni – a friend of Meya’s, Stevie–Leigh was wearing a pink tutu to celebrate October’s Pink Up Griffith month, where the town is encouraged to wear pink to support the McGrath foundation, which raises money for breast cancer nurses and to raise awareness.
