Pure cuteness.. that's what this little man is! He is always happy, his smile lights up his whole face. Lochie had a ball playing outside with Opa & uncles Jorday & Sam the other afternoon. He chased the cats, played with the soccer ball, picked up the big leaves he spotted on the ground all with this big smile on his face! We're so happy he's back. I will say that he made me work for the photos I took that afternoon... he's a bundle of energy & pretty quick on his feet, not bad for a little boy who's only just started to walk!

Stay tuned for more cuteness coming this way soon :)

Home safe & sound.

What's so special about today you ask?? Well... Amanda, Wilson & little Lochie arrived home from 4 1/2 months in NZ! We are SO happy they are back home. Lochie has grown so much, he is walking & saying a few words. He wasn't really sure of us at first, but I think after a little while he remembered who we were.. his laughter is a wonderful sound & one we have missed dearly!! Now we look forward to Easter & celebrating Lochie's 1st birthday on Easter Monday & spending some time with this handsome little guy... I'm looking forward to having toys everywhere & toddler proofing my home & I couldn't be happier... :)

Have really missed this little guy!

Showing us his walking skills, looks so much like his mummy when she was this age!

Makes my heart sing!!

Taking it all in & very tired!

Lochie & Opa, Amanda used to make this same face when she was little :)

Checking out his little cousin...

Soccer Season..

Today Samuel had a fun game against another under 10's team, even though it was was quite warm in the sun, (believe me it was hot we are all sunburnt!!) the boys had a great game, there are some really talented players in both teams! Samuel had actually been selected for the under 10's development team by one of the scouts for the club... Sam declined, he wanted to stay with his team & his coach, he said that there was no one who could coach him better than the coach he already had... his dad! Sam has the makings of a great player, he's already asked his dad to be his manager when he's older, he's very ambitious... he LOVES soccer & one day wants to play overseas! I have no doubt he will!
The photos are not the best, but sometimes it's about capturing the moments in life without everything being technically correct!! Tomorrow is a very special day.. I will be back then to let you know why :)

Even when she's running she is beautiful..

Pure Sweetness..

As promised here a few more photos of sweet little Avah. Jaimie & Avah came to visit today & ending up spending the whole day with me.... they were the perfect distraction! To just relax & enjoy this time was exactly what I needed to help lower the stress levels... even if it was only for a little while! Avah is really starting to interact with every one, it's so beautiful to see her face light up when you talk to her, her smiles are just precious & when she starts her sweet cooing... oh my heart starts to melt. Avah is a delight, you can't help but be happy when she's around, she is pure sweetness. And yes... there were more photos taken today & I'll share some with you soon! Happy weekend everyone :)

Where has the time gone?

Today these darling little cherubs are 2 months & 11 months old! Yes they're exactly 9 months apart to the day!! Hard to believe that Lochie will be 1 next month, we miss him so much but hopefully Lochie & Amanda will be back home with in the next few weeks :)  He is crawling & has now taken his first steps this week!
As for Avah, well this little princess has brought nothing but absolute joy to the family! She has this thing with her tongue, it's always sticking out through those gorgeous pink lips... always! Avah is so much like her mummy not only in looks, but she can be feisty, demanding, impatient & she will totally crack it if she does not get her way (already!!) just like her mummy!! but... she is also pure sweetness, her smiles & there's lots of them now, well they just melt my heart! I love it when she starts making her little noises, they are the sweetest sounds! We are blessed to have these gorgeous babies in our lives!
