First Trip on the Hentys’ Boat!!

It was a beautiful winters day today with a clear blue sky and lots of sun. jamie & Julia kindly invited us on their boat for an afternoon of Champers. Ava loved it and was able to walk on the bvoat which I was surprised at. The dads took the bubs on the little boat to the beach for some fun on the sand. Ava was exhausted at the end of the day but told Daddy that she could get used to this lifestyle and asked him when we were getting a boat!

Ava’s 1st Birthday Party!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Ava totally knew that it was her party and loved being centre of attention! She was running around and giggling for hours. It was a beautiful sunny day so we had all the doors open out onto to deck. Much fun had by all.


My baby is walking! We went to Arabella’s party and Ava just walked across the room. Once she had started she wanted to practice which was so cute. So she has made it by her first birthday. She has been doing steps for a month now but she has just got the confidence to put it all together. I can’t wait to be told off for buying her lots of pairs of very cute shoes!

Playing in my cupboard

Ava has now discovered that playing un the bottom of her wardrobe is lots of fun! She has emptied most of her old clothes out now. Who needs toys? Please excuse the bed hair!


One from when Ava was 8 months old. I can’t believe how time has flown!

Swimming at Charlie’s Feb 09

Another filler photo. We obviously didn’t do anything exciting today as no photo. This is taken after swimming at Charlie’s. Those were the days when Ava didn’t seem all that bothered about swimming. My how that has changed. She now like a maniac in the water. Constantly splashing and trying to get away.

Pink Ted

Ava’s room is beginning to be a favourite spot for just playing around. It is warm, small and has carpet. This was a play session which involved Pink Ted being  man handled!

This is the new eyes closed smile that Ava seems to do all the time now……

Playing with Pink Ted….

Watch out Fizz!

Ava has clearly recovered from her 24 hour sickness on Saturday. She awoke with the birds at 6am and has been hyper ever since. Unfortunately Fizz has had a bit of a haircut as a result. Gentle in baby language obviously means grab and pull as hard as you can!

A walk at Long Reef

We took advantage of the beautiful winter sun and took a walk at Long Reef today. Ava is feeling much better and enjoyed a play on the grass. She wasn’t really in the mood to have her photo taken though.

Daddy’s girl…

Mummy’s girl….


Ava awoke at 4.30am this morning and was not a happy chicken. With some Daddy love she went back to sleep but she had a temperature of 38.7 degrees and a very snotty nose. We were all supposed to go to Finn’s first birthday but only Mummy made it. Ava spent the whole day either sleeping or cuddling Daddy. A rare chance for some cuddles and clinginess!
