A portrait of my children once a week, every week in 2014.

Ba'il - You chose the cottage cake from the trusty old Women's Weekly cookbook. A favourite childhood memory of mine was choosing which cake I wanted for my birthday. We are continuing the family tradition with you.  You'll be 4 on Monday! I still can't quite believe it. 

Milinh - No time for sleep when there's a big wide world to explore.

A portrait of my children once a week, every week in 2014.

Ba'il - The tropical weather has subsided and a change is on the way. You won't be bare bumming it at the dinner table for much longer…… and I can't believe that this time next week you will be 4!

Milhn - Slow down girl. 5 months today. Your sitting up and crawling like a true champion. Nothing is going to stop you now.

9 & 10/52

 A portrait of my children once a week, every week in 2014. 


Ba'il - The honey birds made a nest near our front door and you would sit quiet as can be to watch them feed their baby each day. You fell so much in love with them that you phoned your Nanny and asked her to make you some honey bird wings. 
Upon our return home from Cairns you discovered that the baby  bird had left it's nest. It was the first time I had seen you truly heart broken and in a sobbing mess. 

Milinh - A busy week back at the art centre and a few naps on my office floor. Your known as the little HopeVale princess. 


Ba'il - My artistic and expressive one. 

Milinh - Everyone in HopeVale says you have bun'dii eyes. Bun'dii In Guugu Yimithirr are little black native berries. Seems that your bun'dii eyes are too busy taking in the world to sleep. 

I've been so absent from here lately. With Caleb away for work so frequently I'm lucky if I can fit in a shower, some dinner and a decent nights sleep little only blogging. This week he's away again. Week 6 since the beginning of the year. It's been a struggle to say the least, especially living remotely with a wee one and my return to full time work. More on that later. For now I'm enjoying having all of us home for the weekend.
