While across a big ocean waiting in Tennessee for the sweetest little baby to be born, I was growing this little guy in my belly and dreaming of my little gumnut baby as I learnt to knit. Knitting a little green gumnut hat.

And here he is, little gumnut babe, more postively lovely than I could have daydreamed him up on a grey Tennessee day.

    there seems to be an aura of magical dust following your kiddos around hehe. i am also slightly envious that it’s permanently sunny and green where you live.

Down in what the girls have nicknamed “the fairy garden”, a little green wonderland behind our house.

The little lion and his crown of native flowers. Florin the Forest Prince.

The little prince however decided his crown was far more practical for pulling to pieces.

    Wow, this is a really gorgeous image! I can just picture video of this scenario, with their giggles in the background, set to soft acoustic with a little ukelele… (Do you ever take video?)

Priya came to me and said “Mum, can I show you where to take a really nice photo?” and lead me over to Florin in the high chair devouring some vegemite toast. “See how the light is so magical behind him” she said as dust danced in the rising sunlight. Ever obedient, I took her photo and she was very pleased. I love that she knows how to see magic in dancing dust.

      Beautiful. At our home magic dust brings much excitement as there are ‘farkles’ AKA sparkles in the air. I love that magic too.

I was trying to take a photo of this boy sitting on the bed but he had other ideas and decided to keep crawling closer and closer rather curious as to what I was up to. I kept moving back wards but he kept on moving in faster than I could escape. And thus we have this little bug eye, who would be up inside my camera if I gave him half a chance.

Florin and I wake in a fancy hotel ready to head to shoot for Bonds this morning. I feel slightly bad that the beautiful big bed with lovely soft sheets is now a crime scene for a rusk massacre but I guess that’s hotel life, right?

I know a lot of people wanted their kiddos to be selected to model for Bonds for photos or for a modelling opportunity or (… well, I am not sure why else because it wasn’t really worth the time for a $300 bonds voucher?) buuuut I just *love* Bonds. Like love love. Here Florin is in a vintage Bonds beanie from the 70′s. I remember buying it down at our local OP shop and that moment of feeling really nostalgic and proud about all the Bonds our kids have worn. My ever growing collection sourced from OP shops, hand me downs and diving for that iconic stripe in a clothes swap pile.

The little purple stripey hoodie that Priya wore all the time when she was new, the stripey stretchie suits my nieces used to wear back when they were small and the little folded and aged wondersuit that I used to wear when I was smaller than Florin is now. And maybe the company has started being made off-shore and maybe I am not really into a lot of their new designs but gosh darnit. They wear well and they go with everything! Sometimes I just have to cling to something to be proud of as an Australian cause lord knows our government isn’t make that easy :/ It’s so awesome that Florin got to model for a brand that has marked so many of my fondest memories (and I am sure nearly every other Australian families).

I have to thank each and every person who voted for Florin in the baby search for graciously receiving spam from Bonds on our behalf. For graciously overlooking me entering our baby into a baby competition too (ha!). I want to kiss your faces. I am so grateful to people who took the time to vote and sign up to confirm vote. That was so nice of you. I made sure Florin smashed the hotel buffet, rocked his Bonds shoot and enjoyed a long play in the shower (as a reprieve from our usual tank water situation) in your honour. Thank you so very much.

    Oh I am so jealous of your vintage beanie!!! My bonds collection has come from hand me downs and opshops too. I do struggle with the made off shore issues too but can you get any more Aussie iconish than a bubba in a Bondsie? I think not!

    When do we get to see his modelling pics ;)
    Mind you, they have to compete with the pics his mama takes of him and that’s a big ask!
    Xx
