So much to blog about......

Its been 2 months since I posted, OMG I am slack!!

My babies, Nate and Ari turned 3 and 1 in March....they had a party which was a heap of fun, they got so many great pressies, including lovely longies and beanies from Mel.

Ari started walking a week or 2 before his birthday and is just so grown up now. He is still breastfed on demand and co-sleeps, he is also still worn each day in our baby carriers.....I am kinda sad that he is getting older but also happy that he is learning so much and starting to give me a bit more space during the day while he plays.

I am struggling emotionally.....I think that it has been hard for me since Ari was about 5months old but I kinda expected it to go hasn't, and I have realised I need to make an effort to change things to make myself happy.

Liam started back at soccer which mean training one day a week and soccer Saturday mornings. And the 3 big kids go to swimming lessons so we go there twice a week.

We (kids and I) had a road trip to QLD which involved 2 days at dreamworld. It was a good trip and I have heaps of photos that I will have to upload (darn dial up it takes forever).

I got some delicious knitted items from Tracy (Desert Rose Designs)...they are just fabulous.

This weekend was mothers day - which was OK but not to different from most other days.....I did sit down and sew on Saturday afternoon though, as part of the Nappycino sew-a-long. I sewed the Heather Bailey Pin Cushion...quick and pretty easy. I should at least show one pic to make this post more interesting.

Thanks for reading....try to be back soon with more pics and in depth stories.

hugs from me too, I have/do feel much the same. and you are right you need to be pro-active and change it for YOU, it's so easy to get caught up with everyone else and forget that your soul needs some attention too.

great to see you sewing again, and even a darn pin cushion looks amazing!!
