City Elite Baby Jogger Review

I work in an area where there are quite affluent families- let me tell you- the price some of those families have paid for their prams is astronomical! When I was pregnant I would write down the names of prams I saw, especially travel systems (the capsule which clicks into the car and the frame)…

Baby Ava- 8 weeks on!

Here we are- Ava is 2 months old! We are already seeing so much of a difference with the way she looks and the things she is discovering! Things she has discovered over the past 4 weeks: Her hands and fingers! Her fingers end up in her mouth a lot! Her non-audible laugh! Ava looks…

Spring Time!

When I think of spring I think of muted pinks, feminine pastels and florals.. lots and lots of floral! While I’m not rushing to bring home a floral couch (Greg would have a mini heart attack), there are ways to add touches of spring to your decor and outfits! I’m blessed that we had a…

Working out – post baby!

Prior to getting pregnant with Ava I was running 3-5 times a week.. I was also unofficially competing with my husbands father every  month on the Nike app to get more km’s/miles than him.. I’m not sure if he was actually aware of it which is why I saw “unofficially competing!” When I miscarried late…

My Baby..

My beautiful baby girl! You brighten all my tomorrows, and have enlarged my heart more than I could have ever imagined. We watch sunrises together and enjoy quiet times in the middle of the night. While the broken sleep has taken some getting used to, we are grateful that you are growing and needing food…

Diaper Bags!

Since the birth of Ava I have used my handbag twice. Now, carefully residing in the zipped pocket of my diaper bag is my phone and my wallet. I am constantly searching for my lip balm, eye lash curlers and a pen- but who has the arms to have a handbag AND a diaper bag??…

Ava May- 7 weeks on..

We are 7 weeks into this parenting experience! I don’t think you can even call it ‘parenting’ at this age? More like, 7 weeks into the new job role of bottle feeder, burper and high-pitched laughs. Ava is growing and developing well- we had her 6 week shots last week which were terrible, but she was…

Free development printables!

If you have children (under the age of 10ish) you need to check out Mr Printables! It is a site I have been visiting for a couple of years now, especially with my niece Mia. We have found some great crafts as well as learning to count/read printables! The great thing about Mr Printables is that there are…

Back to School Free Printable Drink Sleeves

I came across these free printable coffee cup sleeves over at WhipperBerry- I think Heather’s post was sponsored for a particular cup (which I don’t think we have here in Australia)- but it was such a great idea that you could use on any takeaway cup. You can buy coffee takeaway cups in bulk from your local grocery…

These shoes were made for..crawling?

I feel as if the section in department stores, Baby Shoes, is an oxymoron.. does that stop me purchasing newborn shoes? Negative. Have I purchased shoes called”pre-walkers”? Yes. Are they really really cute and adorable? YES!! While Ava probably wont be walking till she’s at least 10ish months (we have big plans for our little one-…

Baby Shower Gifts

My best friend threw Ava and I the most beautiful Baby Shower a few months ago- we laughed and cried and enjoyed a wonderful afternoon with family and friends! I received so many amazing gifts!! We were truly spoiled.. It’s hard to know what to get a new mum-to-be so I’ve detailed a summary of some of…
