A little outing...

On sunday we needed a little outing so we went to spur for some coffee. Ollie is way to small to play in the play area (and I am not so sure I will EVER let him play there on his own - those kids are vicious) so he sat by us and enjoyed our company!! I cant believe he is big enough to sit at this table...

 He ate a dino shaped peanut butter sandwich while daddy ate calamari and I drank coffee (and stole some of mikes food) - I must say Lolly stole more than a few of daddys chips too :)

I loved this little bit of family time!!
I miss my boys today... especially after this long weekend!

Lollys first birthday party!

On the 6th April Lolly had his first birthday party. The party was more for us as he really didnt know what was going on BUT we wanted to have this party for so many reasons. The first reason was to celebrate the year we have had with Oliver, to cherish him and enjoy him! The second reason was to say thank you to everyone who has been involved in our life and Ollies life in the last year - we had so many people walking this journey with us, helping, supporting and loving us all through this time and we wanted to just say a thank you in the best way we could.
Mom made lunch for everyone and there were cupcakes and sweeties for pudding - we just wanted a chilled afternoon to chat and laugh and fellowship with the village that is helping us raise Oliver! For me it was VERY special.....
My mom and Wella baked the cupcakes and we all decorated them....

A little play spot for Lolly.

Kisses for pops....

He wasnt too sure about the candle...

BUT he did enjoy his first cupcake!!


 Cuddles for daddy.
 And lots of love for his precious aunty Ruthie AKA godmom!!
Here stands 3 generations of Brits'.
Oliver LOVED the bunting - I am going to make some for our patio permanently!

 A family picture (minus mom and dad :)
 And of course pressie time!!

 This was by far his favourite present!!!!

Our child is one year old. When did that happen? All I know is we would not still be alive if we didnt have the friends and family we have around us supporting us, loving us and helping us!!

Wedding bells...

On the weekend we went to my cousins wedding! We had fun spending the afternoon / evening with my parents, my uncle and aunty and Ryan and Manuella!
It was however the first time we had left Lolly with anyone besides my parents and I was a little anxious about that.... Aunty Ruthie, who is SO capable and who I trust fully with my child, looked after him and after many many messages from her saying that Lolly is FINE I started to relax and enjoy our afternoon at the wedding.


They had a photo booth at the wedding too which we had fun with....

It was good fun dressing up.....
