long time no post

So, its been forever since I just did a random blog post! There are a few reasons,
1. the lack of interest in this blog. I know, I do actually blog for myself, but it used to be great recieving lots of feedback - thank you to you guys who do still comment!!
2. As im posting a photo a day for all of 2009 over HERE, I find it hard to know what to write about on here, seeing as im basically writing out my daily events over there!
3. Blogging takes forever! And Now that Libby is walking, she is constantly bringing me books to read! I cant say no to her sweet little face!
Im going to give it a go! Okay, here I go... posting about some random everyday things that have been happening with us lately....
Liberty is growing so fast!! She is very social and loves everyone, everything and food! haha!
She is getting very clever! If I ask her to pull out any of the animals (pictured below) she can do it!!
Im trying to teach her to do animal sounds but so far we havent really succeeded in doing that! She makes a funny sound when she see's a duck - which is cute, and I think she's trying to say "moo". But its definately a work in progress!!!

We haven't spent too much time at the beach, I dont really know why as Libby LOVES it there! We took her there one afternoon - it was so cold - but Lib didnt care! She thought it was hilarious when Matty was doing this....

Here you go Daddy, a shell for you.

Thanks Libby, I know exactly what i'll do with this shell...

hahahah, Liberty thought it was fantastic!!!

We went to a wedding on the weekend. It was the first time leaving Liberty to be babysat by friends and not family. I nearly cried dropping her off, not that I didnt trust our wonderful babysitters, It just felt strange leaving her for the 1st time.
The wedding was very fancy and beautiful! Every single detail was accounted for. They had a wedding planner, candles, lanterns, a singer during the wedding, a band during the celebrations. Enough food to feed a small army! Matt and I especially liked the way they were married and it gave us many ideas!
I didnt take my good camera to the wedding, which I ofcourse regretted! But I got a cute photo of the 4 adorable flower girls! As I dont know them, I wont post it on my blog.
The foood...... Oh my, IF you like oysters, this wedding was for you! They had a table full of natural oysters! Here is a piccie of the cheese platter and lollies they brought out later into the evening...

And here is a collage of Matty, Libby and I getting ready for the wedding.

Well, i'll leave it here for now!
Till next time...

Earlier this week, we went up to Katoomba for a little getaway!! It was good fun! We went and enjoyed a hungi at Sian and John's house to celebrate Sian turning 22! We hung out with mum and dad, and John and I went iceskating in a little rink (more like an ice cube than a rink) set up for the school holidays! Libby loved her time away!
Here is a little video of Libby playing with Ruby my cat, if anyone still reads this blog!!

*Happy Birthday Matty!!*

Yesterday was Matty's birthday!!! We didn't do much for his special day as the poor thing had to work at ProKayaks all day then off to his 2nd job in the evening. I did make him some super yummy meatballs and mash for dinner when he got home and we played some games, ofcourse, i let him win seeing as it was his birthday - hahahahha!

In the morning after Libby had her bottle next to him in bed, I brought him his pressies from his sisters. Libby had a ball opening them all up. In the gifts there were a couple of bags of lollies, Libby carried them around with her practically the whole day! Too cute!
I have never been so un organised for a birthday before. I still had no gift for Matty! I'd ordered a couple of things online but they didn't arrive in time. So, Libby and I rushed to Warringah Mall to go and do a spot of shopping. I hope he like what I got him! I was hoping the main gift would be in the scratchie tickets I got him!! I was hoping he'd win the jackpot..... hmmmmm..... nope, he did win $10 tho!
Here are a couple of photos:
The first one is of Matty's birthday last year! And the second one is, obviously, of his birthday this year! I cant believe how much Libby has changed in a short year!!! Last year she was only about 6 weeks old, so tiny and precious. Now she's a little toddler (13 months) who's walking around, has a huge personality and is still so, so precious!
As you can see, Matty is a very proud and wonderful daddy!

And Libby gave Matty a wonderful gift for his birthday.... she did a poo poo in her potty (for the 2nd time)!!!

Happy Birthday Matty!

We love you ♥ Jess & Libby-cakes
