Oliver is 1 year old tomorrow....

This kid is turing 1 year old tomorrow - when did this happen?

He is our ray of sunshine!!!!


On saterday, seeing as we are on holiday from Top Tots, we decided a picnic was in order. We invited Aunty Wella and Uncle Ryno and it was lovely..... the weather was amazing!
I mean come on, how cute is our boy!!!

 Lolly and I shared some chicken drum sticks.... he cleaned those bones :)

 AND then he had his first Nik Nak.... he loved it - just like his daddy!

 Lolly is teething at the moment and he was a bit miserable - he just wanted some cuddles! It made my day - he is so busy he hardly just hugs and cuddles.... LOVED this!!

Picnics are our new favourite things - Lolly can chill and mission out in the fresh air!

Happy camper...

Our child is a happy camper - literally!
More camping pictures to follow :)

A toy that brought joy....

The other day we went to visit good friends of our who had a little baby girl recently. While we were there we took out Lollys toys and he began to play with them.... Steel, their little pup was fascinated and started to play with Lolly too!
Oliver is used to our pups and he always throws teddy for Timmy to fetch - so he started throwing this toy to Steel and the game was on.
My precious boy is very good and decided to leave this toy there for Steel to have - he is good like that :) he doenst mind sharing! I got this picture a few days later from Wayne saying "look whos loving his toy".... Life is sweeter with pups and babies!

Good company...

The other afternoon Lolly and I popped to the shops to get some groceries. Lolly is ALWAYS good company... I chat to him while we shop, we look at everything. I love shopping with him.
On the way home I was chatting to him and after a while i looked back and saw this 
My good company was asleep! Out cold!
A long hard day at school, shopping with mom and it all became to much :)

Mr Happy...

On saterday afternoon I went to my cousins kitchen tea and Mike and Ollie has some time alone.... the best part about leaving Lolly with Mike is that Mike ALWAYS sends me pictures of Ollie!!
These are the few that he sent me... Mr Happy!! He just loves his dad!
 Food time, just like his mom its its favourite time of day!

Lolly has started standing on his own and walking a little while holding onto things... Mike said he was pushing his toy basket around on saterday...

My boy loves playtime and LOVES unpacking his toys!
I promise to always remember other things can wait while we play!


Ohhhhh this is exciting - we are doing a mini revamp of our lounge and kitchen - ok so a mini revamp of our lounge BUT a complete make over for our kitchen!
For our lounge we have hung new curtins and ordered a stunning couch... The couch we have ordered in grey though not beige!

For the moment we are waiting for quotes to re-do our kitchen, open it up completely.... TOO exciting - then we go ahead and DO IT! For that we have bought a brand new Elba stove - it is beautiful! 5 plate gas hob and gas oven with a rotissere :) cant wait to do my first roast in there!
It arrives on thursday BUT wont fit into our current kitchen so it will remain unpacked until our kitchen is done.... its going to KILL me not being able to cook on it!

Our little hipster!!

Ollie is our little hipster!!!
 On sunday morning I fished out all the childrens records I have been collecting and we all sat listening to them! The one we listen to, that Ollie sat still and actually listen to, was the old school record of the story of Cinderella! Beautifull! With the song bibbidi bobbidi boo- anyone remember that one.... I remember that from my story tape days!!
Life is good with records playing in the background, children who let you take picture of them in fake glasses on and husbands who still after 8 years fill my heart with love TO THE BRIM!!!

Hmmmmm delicious!

Super Ollie

The other day I was having a bad day and Mike sent me an email - The subject line says "WHEN YOU ARE IN NEED OF HELP"
 and the the body of the email said "When you are feeling down and there is nothing more for you to do, just call on SUPERLOLLIE and will cheer any day up.
Love you lots"

Mike drew this little super hero Ollie just for me!
My husband knows me and knows what I need when I need it!

Why I love Mike...

There are many reason why I love mike - MANY!! I am not always gushy gushy with him but I have no problem expressing how much I love him and I always tell him he is my favourite! I sometimes tease him and say Lolly and him are equal BUT he will always be my number one favourite person in the whole world.
On monday night I was exhusted and went to bed at 8pm, it was heavenly! On tuesday morning I saw this note and I just laughed!!! Mike had made Lolly his morning bottle and popped it in the fridge for me because I was asleep (we alternate waking up for him if needed and Monday night was my night - although he hardly ever wakes up)
I had to laugh at the picture of Oliver (that angry looking man is infact Oliver) - he has started a new thing where he purses his lips when he concentrates - tooooo cute!! AND he uses his index finger to point at things and pick up thing hence the picture!
This is one reason why I love Mike, he leaves me notes and pictures when I fall asleep!

Movie luxury!!

On saterday afternoon my parents and I went to watch "saving Mr. Banks" - a beautifull movie! Mike offered to stay home with Lolly so we could go and I wasnt sorry! We booked into the SCENE theatre and it was heaven!!
First of all we had some Frozen Yoghurt at Filo - the best yet!!!! I loved loved loved it (I dare say better than wakkaberry) and I cannot wait to go back!!

and then it was movie time!
 The seats were heavenly - recliners that you can put your feet up in..... and we got to order our popcorn and dinner and they were brought to us. The food was suprisingly delicious...

I cant wait to go back with Mike on a date night.....

Boys being boys....

This is what happens when Mom is away - dad sends a picture saying "Ollie grew a beard"...
Mike had fished out my make-up bag and drew a beard on Ollie with my eyeliner!!!
... and thats why I love this man!

Top tots...

Lollly loves top tots - LOVES IT!! They sing songs, tell stories, do artwork, bounce on balls and so much more!!

We look forward to this every week and we are never dissapointed!!
