So I finally plucked up enough courage to start a youtube channel and post my first youtube video! This is about my experience with babywearing. I hope you enjoy it.
|As a child my family spent around two weeks every summer staying at our beach house at Waimarama. I have some of my fondest childhood memories swimming, making sandcastles and running around on the beach. I was so excited to take Emilia to Waimarama for the first time and it felt so surreal and wonderful being there with my little girl. |
|It was a beautiful sunny day without a cloud in the sky and it felt like we had the entire beach to ourselves. It's hard to believe that these photos were taken in the middle of winter! Sunny winter days like these are something I really miss about living in New Zealand.|
|I couldn't think of a better way to spend the day than at Waimarama beach with my two favourite people.|
|I adore this little face!|
|Emilia wearing her polka dot outfit from her grandma Maree. |
|Emilia loves showing off her tricks so everyone. She's not quite crawling yet but has figured out how to do multiple rolls and drag herself along the ground to get to where she wants. |
|Spending precious quality time with my darling mum and seeing her and Emilia together was hands down the best part of my holiday.|
|Harper-Lily and Emilia finally meet for the first time! One of my best friend Darriennes baby girl was born two weeks before Emilia. These two hit it off straight away and seeing them together was just priceless!|
|Chelsea and I have been friends since we were babies and her little girl Miller is 6 months older than Emilia. It was amazing and so surreal spending time together with our own daughters!|
|It seems like just the other day Fran Darrienne and I were on the bus to high school and now we are married with babies!|
|Fun times with Darrienne and our girls. |
|Emilia and her handsome big cousin Peter.|
|Emilia and her gorgeous niece Georgie.|
|Emilia enjoying her pureed pears.|
|Multi tasking papa! |
|Emilia absolutely adores her great Poppa and seeing them together brought tears to my eyes.|
|The hardest part about our New Zealand trip was having to say goodbye to my darling Nana and Poppa who are both in their late 80's. I'm so grateful for the special, quality time we had together while we were there.|
|Our little girl is just hilarious and so full of character and personality. I love it when she pokes that little tongue out at me!|
|Emilia and her grandma Maree (mum) are like two peas in a pod. It was such an special, emotional time when they meet each other in person for the first time at Frankfurt airport. Emilia was completely taken by mum and it was like she automatically knew she was her grandma. I get all teary eyed looking at this photo of them together.|
|It's meant to be playtime with mama but papa has stolen the show again. |
Mum got to join us for Easter lunch at my in-laws. Polish food is sooo delicious!
|Emilia was Baptist in the very same church that Rob and I were married in two and a half years ago. It was such a special day.|
|Emilia's baptism day was full of traditions. She wore the same dress that mum wore on her baptism day over 60 years ago! My sister and I also wore this same dress when we were baptisd. She looked so beautiful.|
|Emilias Oma bought her this gorgeous little crochet hat which matched perfectly with her baptism gown.|
|This was about the 100th attempt of trying to get a decent family photo and this was the best we could come up with. Emilia kept putting her hand in her mouth and all the pics Rob looked good in, I looked terrible in and versa.|
|Emilia's New favourite thing is listening to me sing and play the guitar. She watches me intently and makes these adorable cooing sounds like shes singing along. Maybe I have a little future musician on my hands.|
Last week I turned 28. I can't believe i'm officially in my late 20's! eeeeh
It was a bitter sweet kinda birthday as my mum flew back to New Zealand later that evening and I was feeling quite emotional for the whole day. On the other hand I was so lucky to spend that day with 3 of my favourite people in the world, mum, Rob and Emilia.
Here's a pic of the delicious meal my hubby cooked me on my birthday. New Zealand lamb fillet, mint sauce, spicy pumpkin, caramelized pear and onions and baby spinich. This was followed by mouth watering creme brulee. I'm a lucky girl!
