Billi Jade

Today Priya was a model for the amazing swimwear, Billi Jade. Hailey was the photographer for the brand photo shoot and though Priya was running wild at all the excitement of hanging out with big girls, she managed to get a few of the little bikini baby.

This is a new Australian made brand, which has been created by a friend of my sister, Lien. She makes these all herself and has developed an entire range of affordable, funky & fun children’s wear. I wanted to take home nearly every swimsuit! I was even starting to plot living right on the beach to warrant owning so many! Peach must have picked up on this and promptly peed in her bathing suit which meant we were allowed to keep it! What a lucky accident I must say!

For those of you in Brisbane, Lien has just opened a store in Mount Gravatt east – Retail store at: Dance & Splash Shop 3/105 Seville Road, Holland Park 4121 (07) 32191715. Her website is still under construction but no doubt when it’s up there will be links! For now, how about you become a fan on her brand new facebook page!

Today we went to our friend Heidi’s blessingway. Priya was playing in the tent (that Heidi made!) with her little friend Akasha.

Askasha and Priya haven’t seen each other in nearly a year! A lot has changed for these two girls, I couldn’t believe that seemingly overnight Askasha had turned from that gorgeous little chubba into a real little girl – pigtails and all! They were pressing each others buttons by snatching toys and loudly declaring “it’s mine!”. Priya poked Akasha’s arm and when Akasha poked her back she got told “NO TOUCH”. Who needs TV when you have hilarious toddlers to entertain you.

    Anyways,
    I’ve been lurking your blog for months and months now but never commented. I just love your family stories (not helping my cluckiness at all!) and your wonderful photography. I dabble with a bit of newborns and the like and your pics always inspire me to get better. :D

      @Mel Everitt, Hi Mel! Thanks for leaving a comment. Of course I remember you. You and Leah were like glue!

      I am glad to hear that you’re finding some inspiration in my blog, that’s really sweet. My hat off to you doin newborn photography. Photographing Theo as a new one was the hardest work!

    uggggh this is rose on a daily basis. i SO know that look priya is giving. and i seriously HATE it. because it usually means that hitting/yelling/pushing is coming next. and then i have to get off my duff and intervene, reminding her that WE DONT HIT! darn toddlers, exploring their world.

      @robin, Thankfully Peach saves most of her hitting/exploding/violence for her cousin Zen! We’re yet to attack any of our little girl friends (thank goodness). It is a pain though when you’re havin a lovely chat and one of your kids is you know, pushing the other one into a cupboard.

Blessingway

148-365

148/365

Today was Heidi’s blessingway. Heidi is due to have her little girl in 12 days and so all the women gathered today to bless her on her journey to meeting her new little girl. We wrote in a little books our wishes for her birth, sat round eating yummy food, sewing quilt patches and chatting as women do. It was really nice to see Heidi looking so beautiful and ready for this amazing event, surrounded by so many people that love her. I wanted to get a photo of Theo and his soon to be new friend but Heidi was doing a very good job of concealing her bump in layers of black! The little lady is there somewhere, under Theo’s leg.  We joked about an arranged marriage between Theo and the bump but at the rate I am promising Theo off, he’ll have 5 brides by the time he turns one! It just seems such a convenient way to secure more lovely family!

    As Cara, I love the idea of a blessingway, too! That is great idea. And I (again as Cara) wish I’d had one. But it’s an idea i’ll keep in mind …

    Just decided to write about it at my blog.

    Good luck Heidi – have a wonderful birth experience and healthy baby!

      @Johanna, Johanna, I keep trying to press the link to your blog but it doesn’t go anywhere? What’s the web address? I’d like to read your blog post!

        @Georgia,

        I forgot two letters *whoops* Now it should work. It’s probably not so easy to understand since it’s in German. But it’s basically just a summary of links I posted.

        (I can’t wait to get my computer back, so I can make the blog look nicer than this …)

          @Johanna, Yes! I can’t understand it at all! I did study German at school but evidently I was probably passing notes during those classes ;)

    @Liz, Of course I will help you as much as you want but in the end, it’s down to you. I can help you plan a baby blessing and hold your hand when you book into the birth centre though ;)

    @Cara, Yes, a blessingway is a lovely event for right before labour. I had a blessing while pregnant with Theo and it was lovely. I really wish I’d done one for my first pregnancy as that is when I really needed it, to bless me into motherhood!

I left Priya in the lounge wearing clothes. I came back to find that she’d stripped off and was now wearing only 3D glasses and seemed to be piloting an imaginary ship. When I came to take a photo she just averted her gaze not acknowledging there was a huge mama right where her open sky had just been.

    i love the quilt behind her :) how awesome will it be to look back on these in however many years and see the things in the background that used to be such daily facets in your life. and soon they will disappear into the heap of “stuff” that everyone owns in their house. I guess that comment is more about …other things…def not the quilt. the quilt will always be there. ahhhh im going to be able to see it soon!!!

      @robin, As I was reading this I was thinking ‘wtf, that quilt sure as heck better not disappear into the ‘stuff’ or Theo will be getting nothing else made for him EVER AGAIN.

      @Andrea, Oh dear! Baby fever already! haha. I know what you mean though. I keep seeing new babies and going “awwwwwww” but then I remember I can barely keep ahold of the ones I’ve got!

    @Georgia, It does not! It looks warm and cosy (lol). I hate editing pictures, too…sometimes it looks great and other times it looks a shambles. Haha. I think it’s easy to be your own critic, though, so I wouldn’t worry on how it looks – it’s absolutely perfect. I love how they are with one another.
