Tackling the dreaded cold

Ellen / February 12, 2015

Since the weekend our house has been struck down with the dreaded cold! It is in a way expected at this time of year and with the drastic changes in weather lately. This is the first time Aidan has been sick (we are very lucky!) and it is horrible to watch. I know there is no way to cure a…

#wickedwednesday

Ellen / February 11, 2015

See that tiny dot at the bottom of the hill? Yes, that’s me? At Bluestone last week I thought it a great idea to hire some bikes and cycle the nature trail.

8 Month Update | Aidan

Ellen / February 2, 2015

Weight/Length:  I have no idea! Since the last time A was weighed he was 10kg I am going to guess a solid 11/11.5kg – which means he so close to being the maximum weight for his bouncer, jumperoo and such 🙁 Aidan’s now wearing 9-12 months clothes (with some things in 12-18 months!!) Feeding: I have a post scheduled for later this…

Sale Haul | Baby & Beauty

Ellen / January 30, 2015

Hi, my name is Ellen and I’m a shopaholic. I can’t control it if I see something I like I just cannot leave the shop without it (much to my bank balance’s disapproval).  As you can imagine venturing into town for one or two things during the January sales didn’t exactly go as planned. I thought I would share some…
