Soon to be a dare devil....

Our little Oliver is soon to be a little dare devil if his uncle Ryno has anything to do with it!
Ryan went for a ride last weekend and we stopped in to watch...
Ollie sat on the bike and looked around - next time we are going to take his harness so he can go for a ride.
Mike went for a short ride too - check out Ollie looking at dad and saying "what are you wearing on your head"
 We had a little picnic....
and lots of cuddles from Aunty Wella!!
I look forward to going again and letting Ollie go for a ride!!

Coffee fix!

This morning Mike took me to Vida to get some coffee before work.... I must be prophetic as it was MUCH needed!!! My morning started as soon as I walked in the door and till now (taking a 5min break) its been a BUSY one!!!
Mike, true to form, requested a cookie for breakfast with his Americano while I got my standard Latte!
(he ha - mike is probaly freaking out that I placed my coffee ON my laptop to take this pic... I might get a scolding later :)

Thank you Lord for allowing me to have coffee on such a hectic day!

True love...

To me true love is this - running shower and seeing how Mike had toothpasted my toothbrush and put it in the shower ready for me (I always brush my teeth in the shower)
After nearly 8 years of marrige this is how Mike shows me love!
This means more to me than flowers or chocolates or presents - this makes me feel known and loved!

A long week...

Its been a long week, I am glad its almost over. We are emotionally drained and need the weekend (at least) to try and recover!!
Mike slept over at his folks on wednesday night to help out with things so Lolly and I were home alone! I got Lolly to sleep, ordered a pizza and went to bed early!
Oliver slept like a dream and had his bottle in my bed in the morning while I got ready - he is fascinated with my morning routine :)
We look forward to a weekend with our family!

Sad morning....

Today was a sad morning... Ollie cried for the first time EVER when we left him at Sylvia. I always laughed at the moms who say they cried when they dropped their kids off at daycare, I have never felt sad for him because I know how much he loves Sylvia BUT today i was sad! Super sad, I became one of those crying moms!!
Sylvia is so amazing that she messaged me and said he stopped crying as soon as we left and he was playing nicely with the other kiddies.... and she sent me this picture!!
I now feel a bit better....

Getting a good photo...

On saterday after Ollies nap we dressed him for toptots and he was TOO DAM CUTE we had to take some picturs before we left. HOWEVER it is a little more diffcult than I would have thought to get a decent family photo :)

 I was trying SO HARD to get Lolly to smile....

Still no wining smile (but there is never a lack of cuteness!!)
and finally.... a smile!!
Pity daddy wasnt in this picture BUT we are just practicing.... next time daddy, next time!!

Happy V-day :)

Happy V-day people. Mike and I dont really celebrate V-day, we try (and fail constantly) to show love to eachother every day so today is just a day to say it more than once!! This v-day is actually very special because its our first with Oliver who has stolen BOTH of our hearts....
Ollie made us a little v-day pressie at top tots on saterday -
And this morning we took a very early family photo :)
Just as I got into my car to head to work mike got his bag and pulled out many treats from the side pocket of his work bag like Mary Poppins :) All my favourites.... just a little way to show me he remembered today and loves me! This man has my heart!
happ happy day all!!

I got these perfumes - one is a womans and one is a mans BUT the mens smells amazing!!!! So now I have two new perfumes :) My dream if I ever become rich is to have like 10 amazing prefumes to choose from.... One day people, one day!!
He also chatted to the Revlon lady and got me some mascara and lip gloss - what a brave man!

The new Bevans :)

Ryan and Manuella (aunty wella to Oliver) are back from honeymoon and we have been privlidged to have spent alot of time with them! I LOVE how happy they are and how good they are for eachother!! Aunty Wella is my new favourite person in the whole world.... she is so good for Ryan and Ryan just lights up when he talks to her or about her!!
When they started dating they named themselves "ryela".... so when they came for dinner on sunday night I made a chicken pie and named it RYELA with 2 hearts :)
We are invited for tea on friday night and I cannot wait - our first official invite fromt he marrieds in their home hosting us!! BRING IT ON!!


Ollie has not been well so he has been staying at my moms place yesterday and today and not going to his day mom.... My mom is amazing and always sends me pictures of Oliver during the day which makes my heart so happy!!! She knows I feel it is important for him to nap so she alwasy sends me pictures of him napping :)
 And more recently we have been giving Oliver chicken drumsticks and bones to eat (like an adorable little puppy) and he LOVES it! My mom sent this picture to me today of him eating a chicken bone!
I see that Che Che has also let him play with tupperware... What a lucky boy!!!

My sick boy!

My poor boy is sick, when he is teething he seems to get a cold.... and then it turned into an eye infection!

 Even with a swollen eye we could still get a little smile out of him!!
I eventually took him to the emergency room on saterday afternoon as it just kept getting worse - it normally clears up quite quickly but this time no luck! Now he has lots of meds and creams for his eye - poor boy!!!

Mr. Sleeper.

You have got to love a child that sleeps well! We are very lucky - Ollie sleeps like a dream - we put him down and he goes to sleep, he very rarely fights us!!

He sleeps with the blinds open during the day.... and moves around so much!! Its the cutest thing! Look how his little legs are crossed!!

Its so nice to be able to put him down and him fall asleep on his own.... makes my life easier!!
