Kids Bedroom Update

Because we created a playroom for Ava we were able to re-arrange her bedroom and create more room! By removing a large white sofa bed we had in her room (It’s surprising the amount of room it took up) we could finally put a little tent which she loves! Sources linked below! Ikea Faux Sheepskin…

Kids Playroom Makeover

After thinking about it for a few weeks we finally took the plunge in turning our guest room into a playroom for Ava! The couch that’s in the playroom is a double bed so we can still have guests etc. The room is not completely finished but It’s good enough for now! Ava loves it!…

Toddler Travel Review (Headphones and Apps)

In my post last week I spoke about how we take Ava’s favorite snacks with us on flights.. Well, I took a picture of her snack box to give you an idea of what we take etc Funny fact- if you’re traveling to Western Australia you’re not allowed to take fresh berries and nuts across…

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…

Entertainment for days.. well multiple minutes..

Major Cities by Omy Ava is at the age where a piece of toast will occupy her long enough for me to eat breakfast.. at dinner time, a cut up banana or piece of chicken will hold her attention for at least 5 minutes as she tries to self feed herself.. it is amazing.. While…

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..
