Out of our window

One of Theodore's favourite things to do is to look out the window. He points and exclaims when he sees a bird or hears one. 
Luckily there is a lot of bird life where we live.

Bebe is 1!

Theodore Patrice Guilbert-Watkins, otherwise know as Teddy is 1 today! Wow, what an amazing and challenging year we've had. 
There's been lots of ups and downs as we've learnt to be a family of three, but I wouldn't change a thing.

We love you Teddy bebe, more than words can say. Happy Birthday little guy. XXX

our little traveller

teddy boy was a good little travelling partner. he got back into a routine well and rolled with the punches.. even taking the heat in 
his stride in sardinia. we were careful not to overdo it, have quiet time at home, as well as get out and about.

polo and i have travelled a lot, but it certainly was a lot different travelling with a baby in tow. still fun, but less spontaneous and we 
didn't do much bar hopping or dancing! :) we just made cocktails at home instead.

it's a shame he won't remember this trip, but we have lovely photos and stories to share when he is older. there will also be plenty 
more trips to come in the future! what a lucky boy, i didn't travel internationally until i was 20.

peek-a-boo, polka-dots

Teddy loves getting into our bed and being tucked in, he thinks it's really funny and a bit of a game. 
he happily will sit there whilst i get ready or tidy our room.

these are from a couple of months a go now.. when Teddy boy just ate and slept. he's a lot more alert and awake these days. he's a 
happy boy, already very inquisitive - his eyes are everywhere and he's busy - arms and legs always moving. 
it's going to be fun to see his little personality grow as he grows older.

it's hard to believe that Teddy is 2 months old now, he's grown quite a lot in the past two months. so funny looking at these photos of 
our first weeks at home and remembering just how small he was! he's now just over 4 kilos, woohoo. he'll have big bhubby cheeks and 
rolls for days before i know it. motherhood is good. it keeps me busy, hence no posts recently. we have good days and bad days. but 
whatever happens, or how hard a day seems, looking at Theodore's little face makes my heart melt. the poor kid is smothered 
constantly in kisses. ha!

i'm going to try and not let this blog be taken over by baby, but i don't think i'll be here much in the next little while and forgive me 
for the baby photos.

hope you're all well. i'm missing visiting all your blogs too.. i don't seem to spend much time on the computer these days, my hands 
seem like they are constantly full with other things or someone :)

introducing Theodore

so our little boy Theodore decided to arrive over 2 weeks early! Teddy arrived on Thursday 21st February at 1:53am. a little, beautiful 
boy weighing only 2.6kg and 47cm long. i had quite a complicated and slightly traumatic birth experience, but hey - we made it and 
look at the beautiful healthy package that arrived at the end. 

Teddy will be 4 weeks on Thursday! boy, that last  month has flown by. we're getting used to life as three and finding a routine. it's 
taken me a bit of time to recover, but i feel more like myself everyday. 

i probably won't be here too often in the next little while, this little guy seems to fill my days without even trying :) 
we're going to enjoy each others company and it's so fascinating seeing how much Theodore changes and develops day-to-day, week-
to week. in the next week or two he should start smiling. i can't wait for that.

i'm a bit more active on instagram, so join me there.. i apologise in advance for all the baby photos. i just can't help myself.

as of today i'm on maternity leave! baby boy's due date is the 8th march, so not long now.
unfortunately i'm sick with a awful head cold. so i'm feeling pretty yucky. 
i'm unsure how frequently i'll be posting here in the next little while...
i haven't been taking a lot of photos recently and things have been busy for his impending arrival.
but please come back every now and again to check in. i'll miss you all if you don't.
i'm still on instagram, so you can keep up to date through there, if you're interested.

at home

it's funny to think that in about 6-7 weeks there won't be just the two of us living at home. there will be a new addition to the family. 
we're getting excited about baby boy's arrival. we've got some things still to organise, buy and rooms to rearrange.
i'm really looking forward to seeing what he looks like!

the bump. 30 weeks.

i thought you might be interested in seeing the bump. this photo was taken by the husband the other day, whilst we were exploring 
some of sydney's beautiful harbour beaches, not too far from where we live.

i'll be sharing some film photos from the day in the new year. such amazing views, such beautiful weather. so relaxing. 
this is why we live in sydney.

so yes - sydney above with the bump - in all our glory. ha!!

happy new year everyone from sunny sydney.

wishing you all the best for 2013.

now and then

merry christmas friends!

today i'm sharing photos from yesterday (top image) and this time last year (bottom image). this year the beach, last year it was snow!
hard to believe this time last year we were spending our last weeks in london and europe, saying goodbye to family and friends, 
packing our things for the big move back to sydney.

i really can't believe how quickly this year has gone. it's crazy really.

2013 is another big year for the husband and i, as we'll be welcoming baby boy to the world in early march. i'm 29 weeks (the bump is 
getting big), so he'll be here in no time. exciting and a little daunting all at once.

i hope you enjoy the holiday season wherever you are in the world. i thank you for your support, kind comments and encouragement 
this past year and look forward to sharing 2013 with you.

thanks as always for visiting.

happy saturday to you!

i hope you all have a good weekend. what are your plans?

maria, our husbands and i are meeting shortly for coffee and gelato.
i'm hopefully going to finish off the b&w film i have in my camera at the moment.
we're having dinner with friends from melbourne tonight.
tomorrow i'm having a catch-up with some girlfriends.

i've also been trying to find clothes in my wardrobe that actually fit me. the bump is growing, which means i can't wear a lot of my nice 
clothes. so my challenge is trying to be a stylish pregnant lady... wish me luck.

hope the sun is shining for you wherever you are in the world.

photos above are left overs from our october weekend in the blue mountains. yes, more rhododendrons!

two is becoming three!

i'm very excited to share some special news with you.. 
the husband and i are having a baby boy! we're looking forward to meeting him in early march 2013.

i'm almost 23 weeks and feeling good. i had terrible morning (all day and night) sickness for quite a while, but now i feel much more 
like myself, thank goodness. the bump has started to pop out the last couple of weeks. i look more like a pregnant lady now and less 
like i've eaten a very big meal. maybe i'll post a bump photo here some day...

exciting times ahead!
