Yes I'm alive

Gosh I really have let this blog go haven't I.

So much is happening in our lives right now. Cooper is going to be 3 in less than a month and our baby Blake is 7 months old already. Time goes by way too quickly.

Our latest adventure and exciting news is that we're building again. Call us crazy but we LOVE building and we've found the most gorgeous block is a stunning estate nestled in the Gold Coast Hinterland, we are in love. It's about a 5min drive to the Hinze Dam and there is a gorgeous little country style school which the boys will go too less than 10min away. So we're currently waiting on our land to register and we've picked our house design. It's such an exciting time and I can't wait to have a brand new home to raise our boys in yet again.

Cooper is doing really well. He's becoming such an independant little boy with a wicked imagination. He's quite the baker in the kitchen and is constantly riding around on his imaginary motorbike, such a boy. We're loving the little man he's becoming.

Blake is days away from crawling. He's been moving around the house by shuffling or rolling but he's just started to actually move forward, it's lots of fun to watch. He's the most adorable and loving little boy. He's always got a gorgeous smile on his face and just adores his older brother. He cut it first tooth around easter time, just in time for choccie I bet. I can't believe how much he's growing.

Luke is currently on two weeks holiday which has been great. I love having him home and i'm both the boys will miss him as much as I when he has to go back to work on Monday.

I'll have some photo updates soon.

I am Beautiful

The beauty of my body is not measured by the size of the clothes it can fit into, but by the stories that it tells. I have a belly and hips that say, “We grew a child in here,” and breasts that say, “We nourished life.” My hands, with bitten nails and a writer’s callus, say, “We create amazing things.”

Ummmmm oops

Yes i'm the world's worst blogger.

There really isn't enough hours in the day and to think I was doing so well there for a while keeping up with it.

New weeks resolution is to update on the last couple of months, keep your eyes peeled.

Chasing my tail

I think I may have biten off more than I can chew this festive season. I seem to be losing my mind and also questioning whether I indeed had one in the first place.

Why is it that I can never say NO to people. I feel like i'm constantly trying to please and it's driving me crazy, yet I can't do anything about it.

We've been so busy this past week with lots of Christmas gatherings, end of year parties and functions to attend. It's been wonderful but I feel like i'm chasing my tail. My house is in complete disarray which is not only driving me insane but I fear my husband as well. I feel like i've got so much to do and not so much time to do it all in.

And to top things off we fly out to Melbourne on Friday morning for the weekend as our good friends are getting married on Saturday out at the Mitchelton Winery. I'm really looking forward to it because the break will be nice but I'm not looking forward to leaving Cooper behind. He's staying with his grandparents for the weekend and i'm getting super anxious about being away from him for that long. We've only never spent 24 hours apart since he's been born and so three whole nights away from my baby boy is going to be hard to say the least. I'm hoping the copious amounts of Yarra Valley wine will be enough to take my mind off not having him with us. Blake will be getting lots of expressed milk this weekend.

Did I mention I love this time of year ?

~Christmas tree 2008~

You can smell it in the air, there is something about Christmas that is just so special and magic.

Cooper is beside himself with excitement every day when he gets to open yet another window in his advent calendar or at night time when the Christmas tree lights get turned on. Even after a rocky start this year with Santa he's now completely in love with him. He waves everytime we go past him at the shopping centre and he was so excited when he got to sit with him the other day at his Playgroup Christmas party. The fact that Santa gave him a present had nothing to do with it of course. Nanna came along to his end of year celebration and he was so excited to show her off to his little friends but even Nanna got ditched at the mere sight of Santa.

And as I suspected Cooper is already driving me batty redecorating the tree every five minutes or pulling down all of the decorations that i've put around the house. But I wouldn't have it any other way.

Cooper had a blast at Abrakidazzle for his Playgroup Xmas party, he didn't stop running the entire time we were there. Well actually he did, for Santa!!

~Santa is now my friend~

~It's 'toot toot' Mummy~

~Look Nanna it's 'toot toot'~

We took Cooper & Blake up to see the Myer display at Pacific Fair the other night. Cooper's eyes almost popped out of his head when he saw the train ride and all the lights and decorations. I didn't think we'd be able to get him off the train when we wanted to leave but we bribed him, I mean told him we would go and 'eat' so thankfully he was hungry enough for that to have worked. Amazing what we have to do these days, I never thought i'd be the kind of Mum to use bribery, whatever works for you I say!!
