My Baby is Growing Up!

Well, my little baby really isn't a baby anymore!! She had her first night away from us on Wednesday. We planned for her to stay the night at her Nanna's but really no-one thought she would last. We were expecting (and kind of hoping secretly I think) to have to go and rescue her at bedtime or in the middle of the night at least. But, no, she surprised us all and went to bed and slept through til 7am!!!! She woke up quite happy and didn't even want mum and dad then. When we went to pick her up she was sooo excited. I think it was more traumatic for us than it was for her! She really isn't a baby anymore.

What We Are Learning.

Well, I haven't figured out how to get our pictures on the previous post yet. Need to find the software to download them off my phone first!

So, what have we been learning this week? We are reading "The Carrot Seed" as part of our BFIAR journey. So yesterday, after reading it we planted sunflower seeds in the garden and then setup a little jar with cotton wool and a variety of other seeds so Liana can watch them grow.

Liam is talking up a storm at the moment. Can't understand a huge amount of what he is saying but these words are VERY clear: dog, cat, duck, car, keys, mum, dad, no, drink and his favourite - I want that!

Well, I've had this blog for about a month and am yet to post so I thought I'd better start now or I never will!! So here it is my first entry.

We've been having quite a bit of rain the last couple of weeks, which we desperately need, but isn't great when you are stuck at home with two kids. Yesterday was a beautiful day so we all went for a nature walk (ala Charlotte Mason) We went to the waterfalls not far from us and had a little hike along the creek it empties into. Jsut beautiful with all the recent rain we've had. The kids had a blast and I think Liana would've stayed there all day. I think we will make this the first entry into our new Natural Journal for Liana.

Now to see if I can post some pictures from the day.
