Out and about in the big wide world, clutching the “gummy” his sister so generously gave him and his little friend the zebra rattle. As he’s starting to be able to show interest in (and clumsily clutch) things he likes my heart must fight the desire to buy him all.the.things. A western parents problem.
This photo comes via my darling Errol. Who, on this day, took not one, not two but FIVE children out for a play down at the river for an afternoon swim and not only that, came back with a 365 photo for me. With a bottle of breastmilk Florin didn’t even seem to miss his mama. Although, when would he have time to surrounded by so many mini mamas?
We took the kids to the Frozen sing-a-long and I want to make it out that we are such good parents to subject ourselves to that for our kids but the truth is, I didn’t even need the prompts to sing-a-long too. Do you wanna build a snooooowman? Haha. There was a little awkward giggling for the first song but by the time we got to “Let it Go” there were four little children in our aisle belting it out (and maybe one or two parents). I am going to put myself in the “more public sing-a-longs” camp from now on.
On the way out Errol and I could not resist our little chubby face becoming the ultimate round face, our own little Lego man. And now I feel like this post has been sponsored by Disney or Warner Brothers or Event Cinemas hahaha (dear any and all aforementioned plz send cash).
Today we were blessed to watch these lovebirds make it all official and tie the knot. There aren’t really words to explain how much we love these two and to see them marry on the sand at one of our favourite places in the world was incredibly special. It is coming on nearly two years ago that I posted about our trip camping down in Hastings Point and Amy left a kind comment on our post and it lead our lives to cross. An elderly lady at the wedding asked me how I knew Amy and I had this strange moment of how to explain I met her via a comment on my blog (and my wonderful husband for organising lunch with them). How wonderful and weird this internet is, connecting us with people we might never have had the chance to meet, people we will forever be thankful to not only have met but to get to know and share in their joys.
