Thank you @tinytwinkleshop for the swaddle blanket. Heston loves the patterns and how soft it is. He’s been cuddling with it ever since. •
They sell a lot of diff products. For further information, see their page. Here’s a little bit on their material. •
“We call our amazing textile, KAFFLE. It is based on a weave of cotton used for generations in Korea. It is more absorbent, faster-drying, and softer than a cotton muslin...” - Tiny Twinkle .
My favourite thing about summer is that these adorable chubby legs are always on show haha.
Soft baby skin, soft blankets and soft Huggies Ultimate nappies are just a few of my other favourite things.
4 kids later and I still always come back to these nappies. They are perfect for chubby legs☀️ @HuggiesAU #HuggiesAU#HuggiesUltimate#ad
Mickey Mouse, he is my constant companion during the sleep, on my trips and in every rare lonesome moment.
Since I went in Paris and bought there my first cuddly toy with his face - it was the beginning of a wonderful friendship powered by imagination. Stay tuned to see where my Mickey will accompanying me.✨✨✨ #mickeymouse
Want to see a sneak of my sons stocking? He’s a toddler-turning-into-kid age and I think he’s going to love it all! (Not pictures are a few snacks from Santa)

We can embrace them or ignore them. Yesterday we put up lights around the house, and what usually ends in everybody mad at each other...suddenly had more meaning because my oldest, who is 17, is no longer interested in helping out with certain holiday activities. My youngest son who is 16, he know longer wants to help decorate the tree.....I didnt know last yr that that was going to be the last yr I'd be making those memories. It just....happens.
My 8 yr old, E, wants to brush her own hair now. And while it is somewhat a relief that the task is now being delegated to someone else, its also a bittersweet moment in that its more evidence of her growing up. She needs me less and less. All I will have left are the memories....the question is did I actually participate in them or did I let them slip away while being on autopilot?
Dont let your next memories slip away, the dishes can wait, and that laundry as well....but our children will never be the same as they were the day before. .

Bath time babe ❤️ Bath time would have to be a staple favourite in this house. It’s my happy place. It works for the kids too.
Got up on the wrong side of the bed? No problems, let’s take a bubble bath.
Got messy playing outside? No problems, let’s take a bath.
Rainy day outside and exhausted your inside activity repertoire? No problems, let’s take take our goggles and jump in the bath.
Bored out of your mind and can’t find a simple thing to occupy yourself? No problems, let’s take the bath crayons, some bubbles, a baby doll and take a bath!
P.s - Who still baths their babes in the laundry tub? Flashback to my childhood! #lifeofacountrykid#scrubadubdub#squeakyclean#girlknowshowtoworkit
Pretty much how I look at my donut while eating it too 😻 Fish n chips at the river for dinner tonight. Was the perfect evening for it too..Except that the hayfever got the better of me and I'm now sitting here at home with one eye almost swollen shut 😖😫
Merry Christmas from my family to yours! These people right here, they are my WHY ✨😍❤️ Today in Costco, we walked past the cleaning aisle and my 6 and 4 year olds plugged their noses and said “oh gosh, it smells like chemicals!!!!” My husband just laughed 😂
❄️ F I V E M O N T H S ❄️ It’s safe to say that Rooney is on the Nice list this year! She’s eating (and loving) solids—carrots, sweet potatoes, and pears are her faves! Still sleeps great, smiles a ton, and can hold her weight up with her tiny little legs. She rolled over for the first time (from tummy to back) but has since been pretty sporadic about showing off her new skill. Roo experienced her first snowfall earlier this month and is about to experience her first time at the beach when we visit Hawaii in a few days! I can’t wait to show her around my hometown and introduce her to my friends and family! ❤️ Also, Samson was convinced this photoshoot was of him... so he refused to budge for a while haha. #raisingrooneyray
These two spent the weekend together and had the best time. I think Gwenevere got some much needed one on one time after all of Anneliese's doctors appointments and everything.
They started the weekend with ringing the bell for the @salvationarmyus! And then they headed to the sand dunes to go camping and riding. This little girl is all about the dunes. She was the only kid (and the only girl😏), but she loved every second of hanging out with her dad. I have the best memories of camping with my dad and brothers in the dunes. And I am so glad Gwenevere is making her own memories with Daniel.
What are your favorite memories with your dad?!
The annual Xmas pile on tradition continues.it took quite a few takes this year but max has now got over his year of heights.im glad we're not having anymore children as I think next year we may just topple over 😂
I’ve always aimed to be healthy... Through the years a lot of times I did things I thought were healthy enough like eating a low fat diet, doing the Atkins diet, switching to diet drinks and foods filled with artificial sugar, and oh let’s not forget this one...doing high impact heart-rate pumping workouts almost daily even throughout my last few pregnancies! I am so thankful for certain people in my life though that have loved me enough to teach me what true health is. It’s not about being skinny (sure we all would like that as a bonus) but it’s about being healthy on the inside through and through. A friend once said you can lose weight if you went on an “all ice cream” diet. And it’s so true. As I get older though I realize this body of mine is getting older and breaking down a bit here and there . I realize the importance of taking care of it so I can be around to see my kids grow up and my grandkids too. Working out is so important...does it need to be high impact, no! Eating clean and nutritious foods is also a very important part of being healthy, but is it the only thing...no! I finally discovered the last piece of my health puzzle this past year, and that’s gut health. I never knew that 80% of my immune system and 90% of our serotonin came from our gut. I never knew that mommies passed on the current state of their gut health to their babies in utero. I never knew that everyone on the planet needs to treat their gut b/c a perfect diet is not maintainable nor possible even. And we can’t help the air we breathe or the stress that hits us day in and day out. Lastly we all get sick from time to time and medicine and/or antibiotics is something we have all had to take. So do we all need to fix our guts...yes and supplementing is so important too b/c we can’t possibly get all the nutrition we need from food alone. Are there so many crazy illnesses and diseases and such that are caused from a compromised gut...yes! Thank you to everyone who has helped me realize the importance of this, and I hope I can pass this knowledge on to others the way you have passed it on to me. Make 2019 a year to be completely healthy in every area!!
Signs you live with a toddler: Photo A) you see this at the top of the stairs and Photo B) you see this at the bottom of the stairs. 😂
Laundry day means the wool dryer balls come out to play. 🐑🧺 Hey, it’s totally zero waste right? Compostable reusables that are multipurpose. Plus, having the dryer balls at the bottom of the stairs encourages line drying. 😆
