Matthews got a few words now. He can say hey, hi, hello, yea, makes a noise which means Jock and can also say Amy. It’s quite funny, Amy was our family dog when I was a child and we have a picture (taken about 1982) which sits on the wall in the kitchen. Matthew loves … Read more

Currently out of action

We’ve spent the last 24 hours with a very sick baby (who as I type this with one hand is curled up in my other arm). We’ve got a lot of cuddles and sitting on the couch/lying in bed happening – so I’ll be behind in getting almost everything done for a few days. Here’s … Read more

It’s been almost 3 months since Matthews birthday, but I’m finally getting around to doing a blog post on his birthday. Initially I wasn’t so keen on doing a theme for Matthews first birthday. But as the time got closer and I started seeing cool things on Pinterest (you can see my inspiration board here), … Read more

My photos haven’t really been of any artistic vision lately. More just snapshots of life. I haven’t been picking up my camera much or furthering my skills, which is not really ideal, but there is no one to blame but myself, my priorities have been elsewhere. It’s all good though, I just need to re … Read more

I took this image while we were away a couple of weeks ago. We’d just finished an hour long climb (because we pushed the buggy) up The Mount down in Tauranga. It’s overlooking the surf beach in Mount Maunganui, which goes on for miles. Gorgeous spot to visit, it’s incredibly popular over New Years and … Read more

Oh dear, I’m a little bit late at writing this, but never mind Matthews been wandering around blowing raspberries this week. It’s not quite proper raspberries, but he goes “brrrr” as drool dribbles down his chin. And then bursts out into big giggles and smiles. He has been appreciating when we blow raspberries onto his … Read more
