Mother’s Day Gift Guide

With mother’s day only a few days away I’ve gathered a few of my favourite items. There’s still time to order these and have them ready for Sunday morning! Most of these are Australian based companies with the odd one or two from the U.S. (which would obviously make for delayed Mother’s Day gifts!) I…

Christmas Weekend

We absolutely love Christmas time.. It’s an opportunity to take a few days off and just live life with family- no work.. no distractions.. This year was no exception- except I came down with a stomach bug/food poisoning for all of Christmas day and most of Boxing day. To top it all off, within hours…

Winter Warmers

While we don’t get snow here in Sydney, Australia the weather can drop to around 1-2 degrees overnight and in the mornings. I have already been layering Ava with her pajama onesie and an extra pair of pants and a long sleeve top.. it may be over the top but her room is freezing during…

Ava- 9 months old

I decided to dust off the old camera to take some shots of Ava! We can’t believe she is 9 months old! Motherhood has and continues to be an amazing experience..  

Turning a corner at 8 months..

I know, I know, I’ve been pretty slack with updating the blog.. I tend to just do a photo dump.. which is what I’m doing today.. but I promise I’ll try harder! It feels like we have turned a corner with Ava. She seems to have developed into a toddler the last week or so-…

Mummy & Me

One of the sweetest things I have been able to do is dress to match Ava! I don’t know why I find it so adorable, but I do! There are a few companies that I’ve found that make clothes for a mum and her baby to match!! I’m waiting till Ava can walk before I…

Baby Ava- 18 weeks on!

Well friends, Ava is 18 weeks old.. I feel like I deserve a high-five for keeping a baby alive for 18 weeks! While it hasn’t necessarily been difficult it is a HUGE life change. The older she gets the HUGE-ER (is that even a word) the change gets!! She’s still sleeping through the night (thankfully),…

Pumpkin Patch

At first I couldn’t believe Pumpkin Patch was going out of business.. they have been in Australia for a number of years. My mum dressed me in Pumpkin Patch and I’ve dressed my daughter Ava in their clothes.. but alas.. They (along with Charlie & Me) have a closing down sale of 40-60% off. While…

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…

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??…
