learning. creating. sharing.




Pebble – 3 years old – I love this photo. Blurry and bright, just like her :) She loves her swings, and is learning to “kick your bottom, kick the sky” to push herself. I love that after three years we’ve finally put some lubricant on the squeaky bush (that’s what Paul tells me it’s called) and now the swing is beautifully silent as it flies back and forth. I’m sure the neighbours appreciate it too.

7-52 Bump

Bump – 37 Weeks – Subtle changes – the dark eye circles, the unmade bed and washing hanging around, the scrappy hair and old singlet. I’m sure if you look close enough they’ll be a food stain on my big ol’ belly. I’m a little more tired, a little more sore, and a LOT more grumpy at the moment. Three weeks to go (or less!).

  1. So so so so close now! It’s awesome fun playing the waiting game with you.

    Pebble is very clever. I’m still trying to teach the Badoo how to swing herself, but no go. I can’t wait to have no swinging to do at the park. No pushing!! x

  2. I never thought of phrasing it that way..I’ve been trying to teach Riley to swing for awhile but she hasn’t quite got the hang of it yet. Part of it could also be that most of the swings here hang too low to get a good leg swing going.

    37 weeks…you’re on the homestretch now! I’m so jealous! Haha…still got a good 15 weeks to go here…at least!

  3. Beautiful bump! Good luck with the last couple of weeks:)
