Dearest aunty cathleen has seen Emby almost every week since she was born and helped her stay fashionable whilst being ethical in second hand but not second rate clothes. Thanks for keeping mama sane and we’ll fed with homemade treats catty! Here are some photos of emby’s first trip out Daylesford way to lavandula lavender …

On Saturday Uncle Bevan and beautiful Aunty Anna celebrated their engagement. It was a riotous night which ended abruptly for me with a phone call from my parents with Emby sobbing mama mama mama in the background. No doubt she was distraught at being torn away from the party an hour earlier just as she …

A serious child, Emby did not crack a smile during her first swimming lesson, but she didn’t cry either. We were the first ‘starfish’ to arrive and to our delight the other two babes to join us were familiar neighbourhood faces. Colourful balls and mats and a lovely instructor made her first underwater experience bearable, …

While extreme temperatures cooked the garden and the power grid we chilled in front of the fan. Despite the heat Ember had one of her best 24 hours of sleeping in a long time, perhaps cosying up to her cot on our futons to catch some fan time made the difference. We spent a lazy morning …

To celebrate Emby’s 6 month birthday, we gave her a first taste of solid food. Safe to say it was more of a treat for us than for her. Her little brow furrow deepened the more spoonfuls of  carefully chosen homegrown carrot and organic sweet potato we offered her. I haven’t seen her frown that …

We’re back home and I think even Emby feels that slightly hollow feeling after a holiday because she kept waking up crying in the night. After some good naps and play with grandmu and opa hopefully tonight is better. I made sure I got the ocean white noise cued up, fingers crossed it does the …

After a day spent obsessing over card shuffling like the pros we realised the sun was setting on our last days of vacation. So we set up at the beach to soak up the last rays of sunlight before the hot day to come. We nestled in a sheltered nook out of the wind amongst …

I’m taking the time while I have Dylan around to shake off the thick layer of digital dust my photo archive has been gathering. I have so many moments to share it’s hard to pick what to tick off first. Baby is in a feather light sleep next to me which involves a lot of …

Summer holiday mornings are idled away watching Ember back stroking on a sea of hardwood floor. With a cushion under her she frog legs along, ceiling gazing, until she disappears under the couch. This new activity seems to have usurped quacking and no new words have surfaced if you don’t count the odd “ungee” which …

This year there is an immense sense of achievement in the community garden. The transformation over winter was stunning and now the raised gardens are overflowing with verdant growth. After the long winter the joys of rummaging through the prickly leaves of zucchini to find succulent fingers of fruit evoke a chorus of memories of …
