Highlights of 2017

I'm finally back on this much-neglected blog to share some of the highlights of 2017:

This compilation was created with the 1 Second Everyday app, which is amazing and so simple to use. It's also a lot easier to take videos rather than photos of two energetic kiddos!

I'm carrying on this method of documenting in 2018 (and probably beyond!).

PS I thought about creating a lowlights video as well, but does anyone really want to see all the fighting, tantrums, arguments, and huge piles of laundry? I decided not ;)

Family Trip to Melbourne

A week and a half in Melbourne was perfect for our first family overseas holiday. Great company, great food, and lots of adventures!

We spent the first weekend at Lorne and I came to some conclusions:
  • We should definitely have a lot more Hennessey get-togethers
  • Chocolate ice cream is always the best option
  • Cards Against Humanity has been added to my wishlist
  • My husband is actually a Disney Princess

Back in Melbourne we spent a lot of time at various playgrounds, checked out Melbourne Zoo, played in Jem's Kombi, made our compulsary visit to the aquarium, and Owen and I escaped one evening for our first date night in forever!

These wild ones are already looking forward to our next trip!

Rory's Birth Story

Preparing for birth the second time around was a lot easier. After the drama of Shae's arrival it was clear that this birth was going to be really different: either a straightforward and reasonably fast natural delivery, or a decision early on in the labour to have a caesarian. My preference was the natural delivery but I honestly wasn't too worried either way, I knew that once the baby was here the details of his arrival wouldn't matter.
