Hair on the go!

Not that I put much effort in prior, but now that Ava has come along I do have a little less time to do my hair in the mornings! While I’m grateful for the invention of bouncers and play-pens I still look for ways to do things a bit faster. I.e. habit number one I have…

I wish I had wings..

A few months ago my niece Mia was told to make a wish when she blew the candle out on her 6th birthday cake. After making this wish she quickly asked us if we wanted to know the wish she made- without missing a beat she told us she wished to grow wings.. ..and that…

Bridal Shower Printables

I know Growing a Bebé is based around raising our little girl Ava, however I think a big part of navigating parenthood is having balance. Balance in that we are raising our little girl in the hope that she will thrive as a tiny human (for the time being), but also balance in that I…

A flare for the dramatic..

A few months ago I wrote a post about Ava’s nursery- we decided to go with pastel’s and whites. If you have seen our house you will notice that I definitely like whites and neutral colours. Our lounge-room and dining area are very Scandinavian- grey couches, timber and white dining set, white walls etc. Everyone has…

In my Diaper bag..

I had a reader ask me about what I carry in my diaper bag when Ava and I go out- I’m very much a no fuss kind of person in that I carry around what is needed- nothing more. I don’t think there is anything worse than rummaging through a bag of baby items trying…

Baby Ava, 3 weeks on..

Ava is now 3 weeks old- ahhh! I can’t believe time has gone so fast! Overall she has been an amazing baby- we truly feel so blessed! We’ve had a few hiccups with her bringing up a feed every few days. We thought we narrowed it down to a particular teat on a bottle (so we’ve…

Mug full of goodness!

This month Freedom Furniture are donating all proceeds made from mug purchases to the Children’s Cancer Institute! I don’t think there is a more worthy occasion to hop into your local Freedom store and purchase a mug or set of mugs! We spend at least $4-$5 a few times a week on coffee, I encourage you to go in…

Books for the baby!

They say it’s never too early to start reading to your baby- well, I tried reading Ava a book on Thursday morning after her bottle- she lasted almost all the way through without fussing but I think it may have been a bit of over stimulation as she was awake for the next hour instead…

A heart for the home!

A few weeks ago I came across the below picture on instagram by Awaken Gathering- I took a screenshot with the intent of re-posting it when I felt to- that hasn’t happened yet (can you blame me). This simple image profusely spoke to me. I can imagine there are quite a few mum’s out there who feel…

My heart..

“Making the decision to have a child – it is momentous. It is to decide forever to have your heart go walking around outside your body.” Elizabeth Stone After coming across the Wrapped in Love DIY from Delia, I decided to create my own version using a crochet heart I worked on when I was…

Free events around Sydney!

There are a few websites floating around that have lists of free events for kids around Sydney. When I started Growing a Bebé, I wanted to make it a point to post about good free events for other mums however trying to cover all the different websites was a bit hard. Below are my top…
