Basket Case.

So big. 

Last Friday was Eva’s fourth birthday. We celebrated with pizza, chocolate ice cream and cupcakes while watching Frozen on our back desk. Eva sang throughout the movie and performed alongside Elsa with her grandparents and little brother watching on in awe. It was perfect! 

Happy 4th Birthday, Eva Lilly! 

Four Years Old. 

Four Years Old. 

Afternoon Light. 

A castle for reading books, imagining and exploring. Four is such a beautiful age. The imagination Eva has is incredible — I just love listening to her stories and watching her play.

Recently a friend recommended this book, and it couldn’t be more perfect for Eva. You can mix and match fairy tales resulting in some silly stories — “Cinderella put on a bright red cape and was pounced on by a wolf disguised as a handsome prince” and “Sleeping beauty was laughed at by the ducks and fell asleep in baby bear’s bed after eating Little Red Riding Hood’s granny”!  So much fun.

Happy 1st Birthday, Owen!

Hip Hip Hooray! 

Last week we celebrated Owen’s first birthday! It was a lovely afternoon spent with family and close friends. Moustaches were out in force, bubbles filled the backyard and Owen enjoyed his first little piece of cake. 

We kept the food simple — cheese platers, soup and deli style sandwiches followed by chocolate cupcakes and a banana cake lovingly made by Owen’s Grandma. Rain threatened so the tables were cleared, leaving the backyard empty for the kids to run and play. 

It was the perfect afternoon. We couldn’t be more proud or grateful for our happy, smiley and beautiful boy.

Mother’s Day 

I spent Friday morning with Eva at her preschool for art and morning tea. It was lovely to get an insight into how she plays and interacts with her friends. She drew self-portraits, painted, created and made me a colourful beaded necklace. Along with her classmates, Eva performed a couple of songs with great excitement and confidence. I couldn’t have been more proud!

This kid took two steps by himself today!

Along with planning Eva’s 4th birthday party, Mr Owen Henry is turning ONE in less than two weeks! I’m slightly in denial… 

i) How and when did my baby grow up so quickly?!

ii) How is it possible that my children’s birthdays are a day apart? (May 23, 2010, May 22, 2013!)

iii) Why, oh why did I decided to plan separate birthday parities?!

These next couple of weeks are going to be crazy fun, but crazy busy!
