Playing peekaboo with me from behind a tree on Chambers Island. I love how things change.

I have so many different memories from adventures to Chambers Island.

I smile to think of what I might have thought as I walked past this tree many years earlier if a magical voice from the heavens  had said “One day, you’ll have a son and he’ll hide behind that tree while you take photos”.

I probably would have assumed he’d be my first born, I’d probably have imagined myself older (I certainly didn’t have mother to two at 22 in my plans!), I’d probably have pictured a son hiding behind a tree much older than 7 months and I am positive I couldn’t have pictured a son so utterly good-looking ;) It’s strange how so many things don’t work out the way I expected them to – and if you’d told me things would be this way they are 5 years ago, I don’t think I would have been excited by this outcome. Yet here I am, happier than I could have possibly planned.

      @kim, 23 is not too young! Yep, I am only 22 which meant I got pregnant with Priya at 19. I guess it’s what you make if it, regardless of age. I refuse to believe young mothers don’t make great mothers – we’re in our prime – women have been having children in their teens/early 20′s for all of history – this is what’s biologically ‘normal’. I know amazing mums in all age brackets and I really think it just comes down to *wanting* to be a good parent and following through – age/experience has very little bearing on it. I am happy I had my babies so ‘young’ because they already wear me out – I *cannot* imagine doing this in 10 years!

    i think about things like that all the time. it’s usually in a more depressing manner though (not that i would change a single thing about my life right now, just that things were…different then). LUCKILY, we move a lot. I’m always haunted when I go back to where i grew up though. Good things I leave for another visit there in 13 days!

The cheeky pair were reunited at the park today. We haven’t seen much of Zen lately what with babies and busy schedules. It’s a real shame as Peach loves her cousin dearly and it was so sweet to watch them play!

Oh Theo.

I am sorry I let this happen to you but Peach and Rose were insistent you had ‘owies’. Don’t worry though, they’re all better now – you’ve got bandaids.

    I cannot count how many times I’ve seen this very thing played out in my home. It was one of my biggest motivators for switching to cloth liners/pads! No sticky backing means no fun. ;)

      @REBECKA, Ahaha, what is it with the babies and stealing our things?! I wasn’t using these anyway – they were given to me and I am still amenorrheic from nursing (yay!). I hoping to get a cup though when that blessed cycle returns.

Nadia Sunde

Today we went to the Friends of the Birth Centre 15th Birthday Celebrations. It’s amazing to think that the Birth Centre has been assisting women to have beautiful natural births with midwifery led care for 15 years! It’s a wonderful milestone I hope for many more.

I was beyond happy to hear Nadia Sunde would be playing at the FBC party. Hailey had used one of her gorgeous, fun songs on their Christmas greeting and we had absolutely loved it! Hailey also did some of Nadia’s band photography. Priya loved hearing her live and we took home a CD (which was then stolen by our Texan guests so we have to get another!).

If you are a parent and would love some real music for your children to listen to, you should check her out. Not only does Priya love it, I love it too! Nadia is the sweetest lady and you will love her album, they are all songs written for her own children and they ooze happiness and love!

While I was taking photos Bonny held my Theo bear for a moment. He made short work of her necklace and she graciously allowed him to nom away on the big red stone. I think I need to buy something similar for my boy so he stops trying to attack me!
