Back from holidays

We’re finally back from holidays! Did you miss me? Or maybe you’re missing me already right this very second.

I’ve got loads to share, but just like any post-holiday mood I’m feeling very lazy.

Well they say a  picture paints a thousand words and I uploaded 81 of them here… so that makes 81,000 words worth.

Beyond pictures, I also have some wonderful clips to share. It’s always my policy to ensure I upload only videos that are really worth sharing. So trust me: this isn’t any just run-the-mill mundane clip… this is ground-breaking stuff in babyworld!

From standing ovations, we now have walking ovations. He still needs something to hold onto just to keep his balance but we definitely have upright mobility! You can see in the video the little guy can barely contain himself with delight.

And then we venture into new elements… WATER! This clip is Nathan’s very first time swimming in a pool. I was expecting him to be a little scared and apprehensive of the new floating sensation, but he ju…

My birthday month giveaway

So in just a few short hours we’ll be flying off for our family holiday to KL and KK. I’m so excited but also a little apprehensive of any unexpected dramas we might encounter with this holiday being Nathan’s first plane and trip he’s first venture outside of Perth/WA.

I shall not be abandoning you all completely because as promised, I now unveil to you the details of the long awaited giveaway

If you didn’t know, November is my birthday month, and I sort of wanted to celebrate it with giving a little pressie to someone – something different and fun I guess.

So I’m giving away this lovely Pea Pods Pocket Nappy Set

The set comprises of a pocket nappy, a bamboo trifold insert, and a mini wet bag.

The pocket nappy features a PUL outer, stay-dry lining on the inside, and a double row of snaps. It’s a size medium designed for babies from 6 months up to 3 years old or 8-16 kg.

The trifold insert goes inside the pocket nappy or can also be used in a number of alternative ways besides just as…

Another sneak peek

Here’s another quick preview of the giveaway item…Just because I needed to do a test shot with my new camera ^_^This is not the actual nappy I’m giving away of course, but it will be similar to this one.FYI, I’ll most likely be organising the giveaway over at The Bub Hub. But I’ll post an update over here when it’s out.I considered organising the giveaway here as well, but to be honest I have no idea what the actual demographics of my readers are apart from close family and friends. I get hundreds and hundreds of hits and an unknown number of RSS-feed readers, but most of you guys are pretty quiet. So I have no clue how many parents are among you guys who might be interested. Apologies if it bums some of you guys out, but I hope you understand.

New foods and countdown to one year

Just a quick post on new foods and snacks I’ve introduced recently…Cheerios! His getting very adept at the thumb-forefinger pincer grip to pick up small objects. So Cheerios are now a favourite snack and a good way to keep him occupied.Vege sticks – either steamed or blanched. Here he’s munching on some blanched kai-lan stems (Chinese broccoli) and loving it!This week I tried giving him some fruity yoghurt shake which he expertly sipped through a straw. It was the first time he drank through a straw. I was so amazed.Other than that he’s already been enjoying cruskits, cheese sticks, Arrowroot bickies, apple slices and a variety of other foods.He’s now also progressed from soft lumpy food textures to eating rice with sauce or soup, mixed with chopped veges and meat. I now can sort of prepare some of our meals together by cooking his portion of the meat/veg first without salt/soy sauce, setting it aside and then continuing on with the remaining batch for hubs and me. He will then eat hi…

And so Nathan’s very first day of kindergarten is over. It was a mixture of good, bad, sweet and sour. I think that so much happens throughout the day, it can be challenging for a little person to filter through it all.

These days my days are packed full to the brim. From the moment I wake up to the sound of Grace calling through the baby monitor and Nathan’s cheeky face peering at me over the edge of the bed… to the evening when I finally tuck them into bed and say goodnight.
