Oh the cuteness

I’ve been waiting for our little daughter bean to laugh… She smiles a-plenty, but we haven’t had a decent laugh yet, just lots of short chuckles, despite dancing/singing/toys/being silly as much as we can…

Today we went to the dog park, and after sitting her on my lap to check out the many dogs around the place she LOST it. She laughed non stop for 2 minutes. Clearly, we aren’t as comical as the local pooches. Well, I guess they are kind of funny…sausagedog-01

Zazzle

I’ve been busy loading drawings to Zazzle – an American website which allows you to create your own shirts, mugs, stationery etc for cheap and sell it or make lovely lovely pressies. Unfortunately shipping to Australia is quite expensive, but in the meantime I’m plugging away on creating a range of kid friendly stuff for sale (or perhaps for one big shipment for my daughter next year!).

What I’ve been up to…

Hanging with this little lady! Ivy was born on the 23rd of July… she turned 5 weeks old yesterday.

She arrived peacefully (yay for Calmbirth classes, yoga, acupuncture, tens machine and all the other tricks I had up my sleeve for the birth) and is a very chilled bambino, though we haven’t quite mastered much sleep as yet (getting 1 x 3-4 hour block at night plus another 2 hour one somewhere in the early hours). She can nap away in her sling or being held, but this doesn’t bode well for naps for her mama.

It’s been an amazing first few weeks – hazy (from lack of sleep), happy and healthy. She’s just beautiful and M and I are loving our new life as parents.
