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??…

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…

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…
