Mumma’s Little Helpers

I don’t know if you’ve heard about Mumma’s little helpers– they are the inventors and creators of this catcher device that velcros to your baby’s high chair to catch all the food they throw overboard.. This is Ava looking like a boy, not wanting to let go of her teddies to eat breakfast.. she is…

Timber Canvas Frame DIY

Have you seen those hanging timber canvas frames going around? They have timber at the top and bottom, but nothing around the edges? I’ve been wanting one for a while now for Ava’s room, but they are so expensive! I couldn’t believe that people were charging $30+ for a few pieces of timber and some…

Flower Hoop DIY

When it comes to design I am very minimal. I love natural timber and white. Our entire downstairs is very neutral and clean. When it came to Ava’s room I kept the white walls and went with accents of peach and pink. I hadn’t really added to it the past few months- it was basic…

Peony Garland DIY

Ava’s room is my favourite room in the house- not because it’s perfect, or has a beautifully designed symmetry to it, but because it’s her room! I try everything within my power to make it something that she loves! This was my latest project for room! I hope you love it! I bought two bouquets…

Inflatable Fun!

If you’re like me, you’ve probably wandered through a many Kmart and Target searching for the next project, or the next birthday gift. I’ve browsed most of the shelves looking for home wares and kids toys- sometimes during my lunch break at work, other times, late at night once Ava has gone to bed. Last…

The Modern Dad- Birthday Ideas

Tomorrow is Greg’s birthday. This will be 9 birthdays together! We have climbed bridges, gone to fancy restaurants.. I have given him handmade gifts and bought gifts. We have stayed places for a weekend as well as celebrated with friends at home.. One thing I’m grateful for is, that finding a gift for him has…

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…

Sleeping training 101

 We were blessed with a baby who loves to sleep!! From a few conversations I’ve had with friends I can see that we are really really blessed. There have been a few things we’ve done that I believe have helped with this process. I know Ava may experience some sleep regression- we’re crossing our fingers…

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??…

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…

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-…
