1 Year Ago Today

Our little Princess "Indigo Gabrielle Lisa" was born.

What a bitter sweet day.

In the last year we have made the following memorable achievements:

- Indigo gave her first smile
- Indigo learnt to roll
- Indigo eats mummy's cooking
- Indigo can walk (as of last night, the eve of her first birthday)

And finally, one that I am most proud of, Indigo has been 100% breastfed, no bottle, no Artificial Milk, 100% mummy's milk! I am just so proud that I made it to this moment.

I am not sure if Chris and I will have any more children. We have been so blessed with 3 lovely healthy children (Cody, Malakai and Indigo). They are all such lovely 'active' personalities. Its been an absolute privilege seeing them all growing up. Having said that, they are all still babies ;) Cody is such a wonderful driven boy, although I am so close to calling him a young man. He knows what he wants and he seeks out to get it. Malakai is so full of energy. He will jump off the stage at church and even more surprising, he can get back up without using the stairs! Indigo is learning from her big brothers, she can climb a ladder (at 1!!) yet still adores her cuddles with mummy and daddy. Her newest hobby is to give me raspberries on my belly, its oh so cute :) Well, not to mention WALK now! There is no stopping her.

So, where to from here? The world awaits us :) Its such a strange feeling knowing that life goes on. We have passed out of the baby stage, heading to the toddler stage. Not only that, it doesnt stop there.

So, thats it from me, Happy Birthday my little girl, we love you very much and cant wait to see your life unfold before us and are so privileged to be a part of it.

The Melbourne Show

WOW, what a full on day. Its amazing how tired you can get by just 'walking' around all day.

We left on the train this morning to The Royal Melbourne Show. We werent planning on going but then my darling husband pointed out that the feature animal this year was Pekins so then we just HAD to go :)

I was really looking forward to it as Malakai is really into his animals at the moment. And guess what, we had a great day :)

We started out the day milking cows :) I was super excited about this one as I have never milked a cow. We all got to have a turn. Malakai even managed to get milk out as well :) Good one Kai :) Indi slept through it though so she never got to show her milking skills - LOL

After that we went to get Malakai's face painted as a tiger (pic above). I have never seen him sit so still. He was sooooo good. Every body we walked past for the rest of the day gave him a little growl which he just loved.

Then we went off to the Nursery were we got to see a little chick being born, a mummy dog with some very new pups and lots and lots of kid goats and lambs. Oh, and chickens as well :)

We went to see the chickens after that! That was fun. I told Chris that he could stay in the petting area but he wanted to come and check out the birds too. I think he secretly likes our chickens, I told him I wouldnt tell anyone though - LOL

(Not everyday you see a chicken, tiger, horse sandwich)

We then went to have some lunch which was then followed by Malakai and Indi deciding they wanted a sleep. So, what did they do?? Jump up into the carriers and have a little nap. It was so lovely. I had Indi in the Pikkolo all day anyway and Chris popped Kai into the Ergo on his back when he wanted a nap. We then enjoyed a stroll around the Food Pavillion which was really nice :) We did come out with some Chai tea and some Organic Corn Chips (which I am currently enjoying) and some potato seeds. The lady from Slow Foods (where the potato seeds are from) promised that I would be able to grow them :)

Oh, also I found out that there is a Farmers Market on every week in Mulgrave which is about 20 mins from me - ACE!

After all that we were super worn out, we hopped back onto the train and came home. We changed trains in the city to which Malakai definitvely said, after he took the last seat in the entire train, "There's no room for you Mummy". He then went onto say that Tigers eat tomatos and apples for dinner - very funny.

When we got home Kai - aka TIGER - had a shower. Much to our delight Malakai emerged from the shower Malakai again ;)

Craft to do list . . .

So, I thought blogging my list might be a good idea to try and remember which project to do first ;)

So, sewing I have:
- Frilly skirt for Lucy's daughter
- Pink Fig Lily Top and wide leg pants for Indi's birthday outfit
- Birthday present for Lisa (it was a month ago *blush*)
- Another little swing top for Indi for summer (I will post pics of the ones that i made on Sat for you in the next few days :) )
- Make it Perfect skirt for me

- Leg warmers for Mel's daughter
- Ishbel for me
- Socks for me in 4ply - wish me luck ;) Probably Eunice by Cookie A.
- Celtic Cable Neckwarmer

All that knitting doesnt include woolies that I need to do Indi for summer.

Ok . . . I will have a think and add if I can think of anymore I am missing.
