Some Exciting News

A quick post on my much-neglected blog to share the news of our upcoming adventure...

Our second baby is due to make an appearance next April!

I'm really looking forward to meeting our new family member, but also glad that there's still a few months to get everything sorted (like finishing the house renovations, weaning, and trying to work out how to wrangle a toddler and baby at the same time). Wish me luck!

Today we ignored the pile of dishes in the kitchen and the lawns in need of mowing, and went on a family adventure instead. We drove out to Taylor's Mistake and took a walk around the coast then stopped for a little picnic before heading home.

This summer has felt so busy, so it was nice to have a little time to wander around the countryside together.

I might have to spend more time cleaning the house tomorrow, but it was worth it!

This House is a Playground

I love making blanket forts and now that Toadie is older I feel like I have an excuse. Although I probably have more fun than he does, he's been enjoying playing in the latest installment. This was enough encouragement for me to declare that this week is officially Fort Week (Owen is not as excited about this as I am).

So far activities in the fort have included a lot of chasing games, hide and seek, reading (he now brings books to me when he wants to be read to), and snuggling. I think Fort Week is going to become a regular occurance!
