My baby boy turned one today......

Where did that year go?

It has totally flown past so quickly that it isnt funny.
I am happy to say his first birthday marks an achievement for me that i didnt know if i could make or not....... thats right i have been breastfeeding my boy for one whole year!!!! And i should add he loves it and its such a great comforter for him, and it has helped him grow into the big boy he is today as he has never had formula, he has had a few bottles of EBM but not too many as he realised he didnt like the fake nipple lol

This was a picture of Hartley having his bedtime feed last night, i finally got around to getting Damien to take a picture or two, i love how sleepy his eyes look but he just doesnt want to give in to sleep!

Gorgeous birthday card and present Bailey made for Hartley at kindy this morning, i wish i had the camera for when she showed hartley as his face lit up, it was so gorgeous!

Next up is the Raggedy edge blanket i made for Hartley, i chose to make it out of this lovely flanelette, which is a nice boy print without being too babyish or too old for my baby! Next time i think i will make one out of cotton and do a mix of prints, this blast off print i had no idea what i wanted to go with it, but i think this looks great and am happy with it, so that is all that matters. Oh i found the tutorial for this quilt on Helens blog which can be found here

Bailey chose to give Hartley this Elmo, which he absolutely loves! He is at the stage that he will crawl up to Budha (whose bottom is in the picture) and when shes lying down he will lie on her and cuddle her, he does it to teddies too, so a lounging elmo was needed, and i have lost count of how many times already it has been laid on for a cuddle!

I think Hartley loved this big CAT dump truck, he found out quickly all the sounds it makes and was walking it around the lounge room and sitting on it for a ride, it was gorgeous, as gorgeous as his giggle when it did the reversing noise!

Last picture is of the end result, actually i think halfway result of Daddy feeding Hartley birthday cake! Lets say he loved it! The cake was made by Bailey with a little help by me, and it went down very well

Ok I'll be back with more pictures tomorrow as there are a heap more but these were a few i wanted to share :)

Well i have been slack lately but things have been busy around here, and from sunday till wednesday i had a migraine that knocked me for six, it was my first and yeah really wasn't fun.

First started with Hartley teething and its still going these four eye teeth just dont want to come through yet, almost but not quite, and along with that he's picked up a pretty bad ear infection :( My poor lil baby!

Bailey is growing up very quickly, every day she comes out with something new, some days good some days bad, like her favourite thing to say lately is kakapoopoohead haha she thinks shes hilarious, and i have to admit its pretty cute!

Well 12 days till my baby turns one, and i just want to know where did all the time go?

Today we went to the local christmas pageant and Bailey loved it, i am sure Hartley liked it with everyone going past and all that but he was restricted to the pram where as bailey was standing dancing and waving to everyone telling them merry christmas, it was a really fun day, and lucky wasn't too too hot, then we popped home got towels and headed down to Moana and drove on the beach which Bailey thought was hilarious, and went for a swim, it was great the water was icey cold at first but then started feeling nice and cooling! And everyone had a nap this afternoon, but i do think the heat is causing my migraine to come back :(

Ok time for pics let me dig up some new ones, the ones from today are still on the camera with a flat battery so i'll post them next time.

What happens when you let a three year old pick their own outfit?
Well they of course pick the dress from one outfit and the pants from the second, then lies on the lounge with her eyes closed!
It did look very cute and got some lovely comments from playgroup!

Hartley thought that was the moment to harrass her with an apple! And then while sitting
together Hartley wanted his hair brushed, this is something he loves lately, i will be brushing baileys hair and he comes up to me and cries till i start brushing his hair!

Next up is Bailey being very cheeky giggling that i cant get a picture of her, and umm well i could get a picture of her lol

And lastly my spunky monkey after swimming yesterday, such a cute picture i just had to share it!
Before i get asked yes his head is higher then the pram back when he sits up! He's getting so big it isnt funny, but he's so gorgeous though and is so so cheeky
