A portrait of my children, once a week, when I can…
How can this lovely girl be growing so much, getting so tall and long limbed!?

And how can this little baby that I only had yesterday be turning 2 this month??!!!

 And how can you help me win a trip to New York???

week 36

I think I have missed weeks and am now confused…?? It doesn't matter. 

Every year Marlo- and Now Romi makes Neil a tie to wear for Fathers day- which he proudly does! 

 Romi has just started drawing, she is more interested by putting the lids on the texts than actually drawing anything, the light is so good….

Romi helped pack some kits for Days for Girls this morning. So nice to have her involved. if you are interested in donating to Days for Girls have a look here

Week 34 and 35.

Portrait of my children once a week….almost once a week, sometimes more than one portrait. 

Romi- loves cleaning the windows, she squirts and drinks the water, cheeky face!
Romi loves this book, we ad the word Marlo into it and she just thinks it is the best story ever. Even better when Marlo reads it to her and then Dad sneaks up from behind for a tickle.

We spent a week at the Gold coast with Neils' parents over from New Zealand, we stayed at Broadbeach, found a place via air bnb that was right on the beach! We went to Currumbin Wildlife Sanctuary we use to go to the Gold Coast every year to see friends at Palm Beach and we loved feeding the rainbow lorikeets at Currumbin, I was excited to watch Marlo do the same - and she was equally excited. Everyone loved feeding the kangaroos and there were lots of Joeys too.  We caught up with some lovely extended family at their beautiful home near Mt Tambourine. 

While I was away I read this book. Have you read it? Gosh I loved it- recommended by this clever lady and equally loved by this one too.
