Life lately {a post baby tradition}

We've been really lucky to have my eldest sister come help us out after the arrival of not only Oliver and Austin, but also with Miss Anneke. Those early weeks after the arrival of a new baby are special, but also just plain old exhausting. It's been a real blessing to have not just the help with day to day life, but also the company of family. Something I certainly don't take for granted having lived the expat life for 6+ years. Kim arrived when Anneke was 2 weeks old and returned home this past weekend. Thanks Craig and kids for letting us borrow her! I'm thankful that it's not going to be tooooo long before we see each other again, the next time in the land down under.

Life lately - Aunty antics...







Last day of preschool...


(many) Target runs...


Happy Hollow...




The much anticipated Kinder Surprise eggs...


Sweet Anneke...









An outing to the city...




Sibling love...





Shopping fun...


Attempting the first passport photo (don't worry, this isn't the final photo! We had to get a more 'neutral' expression ;-) )..


Backyard s'mores...


Trying out my different carriers with Anneke (the ring sling wins yet again over the Ergo & wrap)...


Releasing the butterflies we grew from caterpillars...


And - sisters :-) Can't believe it took until our final day together before we remembered a selfie (or two). No place more appropriate than in front of Target!



Now that Anneke is a month old and the help has (mostly - Mitch has been taking a little extra time off this week) ended, it's time to burst out of the newborn bubble and rejoin the real world... Wish me luck :-)

  1. the ring sling was always my fave!!!
    And you look ridiculously fantastic in the ring sling photo- did you really just give birth or were you faking it the whole time like Beyonce? ;)
