tie dye

Yesterday Matty and I along with Liberty went to Centro to escape from this....
The dust storm that suffocated Sydney and plenty of NSW yesterday!! This is a photo of the roof of my silver car!
So, whilst we were shopping ~to escape the dust~ I bought Liberty some much needed bigger singlets! I actually bought them in a size 2 so she'll be able to grow into them! They only had white ones which Matt and I thought were a bit boring so we went to the sewing section and they had about 3 colours of dye to choose from, so we chose purple!
When Libby went down for her nap, I did the dyeing...
Here she is wearing one of the singlets (whilst also doing some crazy acrobatic stunt - haha)

Im happy with the results of my first time tie dying singlets for Lib! It was good fun to do too!!!
Now, to go clean the kitchen from orange dust and purple dye! hahaha

Zoo Friends

Today, for our family day we went to Taronga Zoo! We did visit here back in April this year and seeing as we returned today we decided to become Zoo Friends! Seeing as we live so close it is definately worth becoming a friend. Especially the fact that we will get to see this little one grow...
Isn't he a little cutie!! I cant believe he weighs 164kg! wow!! Big appetite!! haha!

We also went to see the seal show! Libby just loves the seal show! She loved it heaps last time we went and again this time!! (she wasn't loving wearing her hat though - haha!)
We also went to the farm playground bit. Libby and I patted a little lamb and she was very interested in the pig. There was also a great playground for Libby to play around in! And ofcourse, we couldn't leave the show without seeing the gorgeous and always entertaining chimps!
We also went to the birl show and in total spent 4 hours exploring the zoo and riding on the gondola (ofcourse).

Congratulations to our friends Leea and Matty A on the arrival of their beautiful and healthy baby girl, Zuri born this week! I was lucky enough to meet little Zuri when she was only 4 days old, so tiny!!!
Cant wait to see her again soon!!

I had to get 'baking' again! haha! I've decided to call my nappy cakes 'Jessycakes*'. I would love to be able to sell them somewhere but im not sure if they are good enough! A friend of ours has ordered 2 (which im in the process of making). I love making them and would love to have more orders. Now... to figure out how to do this.... hmm.

Anyways, here's Zuri's nappy cake....
  • 30 newborn nappies
  • 'pumpkin patch' top
  • 'pumpkin patch' pants
  • hairbrush
  • comb
  • nail clippers
  • nail scissors
  • 'happy baby' dummy
  • 'bright stars' teething rattle
  • baby bottle

best friends

For the last couple of months I've been looking after Arabella 1 day a week (sometimes more, sometimes less). Its been good fun! Liberty and Arabella get on so well together! Bella is 5 months older and I think Libby looks up to her and is learning lots from her! They are both the sweetest little girls! Im so lucky to be able to watch them play together so often! I hope they will stay great friends whilst growing up!

Say What?!!!

Just wanted to jot down all the words Libby is now saying! So, here goes...

'buhbye' (for byebye)
Uh oh
"guck" (duck)
"dath goo" (thank you)
"guh" (for both Grandmamy & Grandpapa)

Thats all I can think of at the moment. Her newest words are; more, which she loves to use after every snack I give her (haha) and also "dath goo" (thank you) which she mostly says when passing someone something, which I guess is normal as I always say thank you when I pass her a toy/food. So I now have to figure out how to get her to say thank you when she has recieved something not when she is giving it.

She knows her animals. She will point to them or pick them up out of the pile. She is starting to do a few animal noises too. She's done the duck noise for ages. She can now also "mooo" and "woof" when she feels like it! haha.

She understands in French where her ears are and i think she is pretty much understanding the mouth and tummy, again, in french.

She runs.
She dances.
She gives kisses.
She throws little wobblies.
She can be clingy.
She is mostly social.
She is adorable!!!!

We love her so so much!
Xx Jess

*nearly forgot to mention how much she loves 'The Wiggles'!!! Loves them!
